Hi dynamitenews

 

1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
2. what happens when you try to start the computer?

 

You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-
http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/BIOS-frequently-asked-questions

If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

BIOS WARNING-
Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

 

I hope this helps.

  • Z575 will not boot from the hard drive or restore DVD

    Need help on a laptop Z575 age of 2 years that immediately after an automatic update of windows, will not start either from the hard disk or restore DVDs (blue screen). Does not start in safe mode, not booting from a rescue of third party DVD. Attempt to start, it will show you the ability to start the Startup Repair tool. Repair shows that it is unable to fix with the detail following problem error messages:
    Signature of the problem 1: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of problem 2: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of the problem 3: unknown
    Signature of the 4:21200196 problem
    Signature problem 5: auto failover
    Signature of the problem 6:7
    Signature of the 7 problem: bad driver
    OS version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

    Normally think that the hard drive has failed or that windows update caused a software problem, but the inability to boot from any restore disk that makes me think that there is another serious problem with the hardware of the laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated. THX

    Additional note: when you try to boot from a restore disc, blue screen, error message:
    Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    It is a hardware failure that cannot be restarted soft.

    I also removed the hard drive and RAM, reinstalled and rebooted, no change.

    Additional note: I was able to access the hard drive with a recovery of old program, focused on the (SpaceFM) ram charged through the DVD player. Hard drive data appears intact. Still does not start from the hard disk or a DVD of windows system.

    Thank you. Rather than buying a 4 GB or more large key USB comes from put this into hard drive replacement. Installed correctly, boots very well now. No other error of the optical drive... and no explanation I can see, but that's it.

    Unless something else pops up we'll just call cela a HARD drive failed after 2 years of common use. Thanks again.

  • Vista 64 does not start after the bios screen. Can not boot from the recovery cd or help

    Last night a MS pushed a windows update and my pc restarted automatically.  But it does not actually restart.

    The PC goes through the bios tests, passes and then crashes and does not start in Vista.

    I can't start at all, including safe mode.

    I can't the system recovery option in HP bios to load.  Can I only use my Vista64 system recovery bootable cd or actually start.

    First of all, I thought it was a HARD drive problem, but tests of the bios disk hard that all spend, even the 2 hours 'SMART' test that he was running.

  • NB100 will not boot from the XP CD in the external USB CD/DVD drive

    I try to install XP Home in my NB100
    The netbook still refuses to boot from the XP CD. It's just not more
    Returns the current operating system (Ubuntu) or give the error "Could not find NTLDR" dreaded.
    And yet - it will boot from an Ubuntu Live CD disk perfectly fine, AND
    If I connect this external hard drive on my computer Windows 7, (another Toshiba
    Portable satellite) that the machine starts quite successfully since the XP CD
    in the same external drive!

    Can anyone throw any light on what is happening on Earth on?

    Hello

    There are various reasons why this error message:
    In most cases this error because the laptop is trying to boot from a HARD drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly. Maybe the drive is not bootable or not compatible.

    It would also be possible that some sectors on the HARD disk, HARD drive failures are corrupt or BIOS is damaged. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is damaged.

    In your case I recommend that you format the first HARD drive before booting from the hard drive CD7DVD external using Win XP CD.

    By the way: you must add SATA driver to CD Win XP using nLite.
    The SATA driver is placed on the European driver Toshiba page in the Intel Storage Manager

    The SATA driver is needed to recognize the HDD by Win XP!

  • Tecra M3 PTM30A will not boot from the cd to reinstall windows

    Hi all

    Totally new here and I have a question. I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died.
    I set the bios to boot from the cd. He reads the Windows XP cd for a minute then jump to trying to boot on the network adapter.

    Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?
    If it can boot from a normal cd is the stuffed ROM or am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help you.

    Hello

    > I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died

    Your new hard drive is recognized by the Bios?

    > Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?

    You can use a recovery (if available) disk or Windows disk copy. In the Bios, you must set the Cd/DVD-ROM as 1st boot device and press F10 save and exit. Turn it back on. Thus, your computer you should start the installation of the Cd drive.

  • Can I use external recovery disk to do clean install of Windows Vista?

    Hello

    The hard drive in my old PC has not totally. I have a CD of the manufacturer of the PC which is labeled

    Windows Vista Edition Home Premium

    External recovery (32-bit)

    (For distribution with a new PC only) .

    I was hoping to buy a new hard drive and use this disc to do a clean install of Vista. Is this possible with this drive?

    Unfortunately, I can't support this constructor because they went bankrupt a few weeks ago, and their website has been taken down.

    Thank you.

    I have now managed to fix the problem and install Vista successfully by, in the BIOS, changing to AHCI to IDE.

  • Can I update my computer, download the updates to a flash drive and then install it on my computer when I go?

    Hi all!

    I have 2 updates to download an install on my computer. But the problem is I have a dial-up internet access and the size of the combined file is about 264 MB. At this size, it will take several days to fully downloaded. My average download speed is slower than a snail to 2 KB/s.

    Now my current options are:
    1) download in small sections of every day. That I started to do. about 2 to 5% to 10% or slightly more.
    (2) downloadable on a flash drive using my local library computers. Then come home and install the download on my computer.
    (3) wait 2 weeks until we get the bundled package incudes cable, phone and high speed internet 5 MB download download/800 KB.

    I need 1 update to hopefully help with some problems I am with my computer. From IE7 to IE8 will solve most of these problems if all goes well!

    What do you recommend I do?

    You can.

    For example, here is the download link for the 32-bit version of Vista Service Pack 2 standalone version:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=a4dd31d5-F907-4406-9012-a5c3199ea2b3&displaylang=en

    You can download/save it to CD/Flash Drive > take home > install it.

    You will need the KB updates of security number you need to download (from your own scanning system), and you have to get the right to qualify for the operating system (Vista xxxxxxxx).

    Looking for import bookmarks from one computer to another.

    Yes, there is a way. Open the Bookmark Manager (it is Ctrl + Shift + B), go to import and backup (it must be something like that. My Firefox is not in English, so I'm not sure on names). In this menu, you can either create a backup file that can be transferred to your laptop computer or export your bookmarks in HTML format , then import this HTML file on the laptop.

  • Satellite Pro A120 - cannot boot from CD/DVD drive

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120 of friends, he was running very slow so I said I'd do the usual for him.
    Back up all his documents, and then reinstall windows. not so easy!

    First of all, try to boot from the CD so I can boot into Ubuntu or reinstall windows.
    Me has taken long enough to work, I had to press DEL/ESC to enter in the BIOS, but once I put to boot from the CD (and was a bootable CD in the drive), it kept just boot from the HARD drive.

    From time to time I get an error saying + "Media test failure - check cable" + or something similar, theres a lot on internet on this subject.
    I think its something to do if the boot order has CD first, then it has LAN as 2nd.

    Able to boot Ubuntu from a USB key.
    Try to copy its documents on my external drive but really copying REALLY slow (like 1 MB/s) and kept getting IO errors on some files.
    I can't run diagnostic software for HARD drive that I can not boot from the CD (could get the Ultimate Boot CD on a USB but if anyone thinks it would help?).

    In windows, the CD player only reads real CD (audio similar DVD, not CDR and DVDR).
    This means a failing drive?
    What intrigues me most, however, is that I changed the portable CD player with a CD of work of another computer and windows recognize today this new CD player at all!

    By putting a bootable CD in this new CD player, it always starts from the HARD drive (do not recognize CD player in all).
    The BIOS is a bit unnecessary and does not show the detected disks...

    Also, boot Ubuntu from a USB key, with the original CD player, he reads real CD and DVD copied of all zeros are considered blank discs and replace the CD drive with a known working in Ubuntu means its not recognized at all (if this isn't windows driver problems).

    When I started messing around with it I remember windows say the time had been reset, so I set the time properly, then he did the same thing again I think. A flat CMOS battery could not be responsible for this?

    Is the motherboard and specifically the IDE controller or a broken ports, or am I doing something stupid? I'm tempted to just install Ubuntu by USB and tell him not to bother with CD more ;^)

    Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated!

    Thank you

    > Me has taken long enough to work, I had to press DEL/ESC to enter in the BIOS, but once I put to boot from the CD (and was a bootable CD in the drive), it kept just boot from the HARD drive.
    You see the CD/DVD drive in BIOS? I mean all the details like the name WEIRD etc.
    If this isn't the case, then it means that your CD/DVD drive is not recognized by the BIOS due to a hardware problem.

    If you can see the STRANGE in the BIOS but are still not able to boot from any disk, then I suppose that the CD/DVD drive cannot read the disk for different reasons.
    One of the reasons could be a defective or damage the laser lens

    > Every so often, I would get an error saying "Media test failure - check cable" or something similar, theres a lot on internet on this subject. I think its something to do if the boot order has CD first, then it has LAN as 2nd.

    Yes, this error means that your laptop tried to boot from LAN

    > In windows, the CD player only reads real CD (audio similar DVD, not CDR and DVDR). This means a failing drive?

    As I said above, it would be possible that the reader s laser lens malfunctions and, therefore, the ODD can't handle the media. It seems that the laser lens can not calibrate properly and can not move in the correct position. This question is not repairable and the drive needs to be replaced.

    > What intrigues me most, however, is that I changed the CD drive with a CD of work of another laptop and windows don't recognize this new CD player at all!

    The fact is that not all CD/DVD drives are compatible due to different master/slave/C-salt settings. You must use the supported players! In most cases, you can find a list in your user manual what CD/DVD readers are compatible.
