    My comptuer light comes on, but the only thing that happens is the cd-rw light blinks. The harddrive doesn't spin up either. The hardrive works because I got a friend to test the harddrive. I have XP on a disk anyway. Is there a bios reset disk. I tried EVERY F_ Key. None work!

    have you tried resetting the bios? two ways of doing so... either removing the battery on the motherboard for about 5 minutes or by changing the jumper?

    yes... make sure the power is unplugged, that your always touching the metal case, and take the battery out for like 5-10 minutes... it will reset the bios and maybe help you out... no promises though

    it usually is a little tough to get out... normally it has like a metal clip over it that you have to bend slightly out of the way... i guess you can try prying it a little bit... just be careful don't need anything slipping or breaking...

    I just got the battery out :D! I used a pair of scissors, and figures, it was just the lock jammed. I'm wating for the computer for 5-10min and I'll let you know if it fixes it!

    keeping ya posted,
    B.C.

    Hi! I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the bios reset, the bad news is somethings wrong with xp!! It shows the boot screen and after "booting" it restarts and keeps going over and over again unless i pull the power cord out. It won't read of my disc either to reinstall xp! HELP!

    OK.. when the first screen with the system stuff comes up there will be some instruction to "press del to enter setup".. or maybe F2 or some other key.. Do that which will bring you into the hardware setup screens.. and then look for "boot sequence".. set it to boot from cd ;)

    If the computer was improperly shutdown before, the hard drive might have got corrupted. to fix this you need to run the checkdisk\f on the hard drive. This will fix most minor corruption problems.

    If you where doing any partitioning/restoration on the hard drive before you had problems, that might have cause problems in the registry. Drive letter problems will cause windows to hang/reboot at the logon screen.

    You can check your drive letters with the "paragon justboot corrector" demo. It's an ISO file you burn to a bootcd. It'll bootup the computer and read the registry from a non-booting hard drive. (note the demo is 2 years old and doesn't work on all the latest computers). the newest version of boot corrector is in "paragon partition manager ver.10" but it doesn't have a demo.

    I need to format a 10gb harddrive with a 1gb hardrive, both connected at once. Please help!

    The previous post by me that led to the other one was closed by binkie7,
    so this one's being posted here!
