Answer: Problem in PC not booting-up after new cooler installation

Are you getting any beep codes? I'd try reseating the GPUs, memory and check all your power cables.

Hello all, new to this forum. I bought a Cooler Master chipset cooler for my Asus P4P800-E Deluxe. I was checking my GPU fan when I touched the cooler and it was hot, I mean HOOOTTT, like cant touch it for more than a second hot.

The fan is spinning the 5K revs it runs in but its super hot anyway. I gave my stock cooler away and this is what I have. The MB temperature is normal, 37c and cpu 32c fanless at idle. I dont know where that MB sensor is located but the chipset must be over 40c at least.

Whats the best chipset cooler out there. My MB has an Intel 845 chipset. (i need an upgrade!)

My Antec P180 (provides great ventilation with 4 120mm fans) case is sitting standing up like its meant to be and I was reading in another forum that some heatpipes dont like to be sideways, could this be the case?
 

Answer:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

G'Day bindudhindsa,

When you are initially installing Windows?XP, there will be a "Set Up" Blue Screen where you will see all the Drivers being loaded across the bottom of the screen.
Once the Drivers are loaded, and the HDD formatted, the computer will reboot to continue with the installation.
When it reboots, it will give a Black screen saying Boot from CD....Press any key to Boot from CD....
(This screen is very similar to the original Black Boot/Set Up screen that you saw.)

This time...DO NOT TOUCH IT!...Just fold your arms and DO NOTHING!

This it quite normal, just leave the scree... Read more

Hello, I had installed Samsung SSD Pro 840 on Lenovo G510 with the help of Samsung Data Migration and it was working perfectly but now i want to install new windows and its stucked on the boot progress. Some months ago i had installed new BIOS ver. 3.07 to 3.09. Furthermore, I have installed the Seagate harddrive now but having same booting issue. Maybe of BIOS ver. ?

Answer:Booting problem on Windows Installation

hi jklogic,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
A few questions:
1. Is the Seagate drive the orignal HDD that came with the machine (with Win8.1 preloaded)? If yes, is the system stucked on the lenovo screen (similar to this thread) or during/after the windows loading screen?
 
2. What other version of Windows are you trying to install on the Samsung SSD? If you're trying to install Windows 7 or older, have you tried to the set the following in the BIOS?
 
Security Tab:
Secure Boot = Disabled
Boot Tab:
UEFI = Disabled
Boot Mode = Legacy
Exit Tab:
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

I just installed windows xp on an old compaq presario computer I have. The installation went fine, and everything was running perfectly. But the computer froze and I had to reboot it. Now it will not boot up at all. It doesn't even get to loading windows xp, it just stops with a flashing cursor on the screen over the Compaq logo. I cannot access the bios screen or anything.

hey guys and girls. hopefully you will be able to help me. i've spent all day today googling and trying all suggestions to no avail.

i had windows xp pro sp3 installed on a 200GB SATA drive that started failing. so I added a 500GB SATA drive to the same channel, but as master. i also have a dvd burner and another hard drive, so when i installed windows on the new (500gb) drive this is how it was all setup

DVD-drive (channel 1 master)
IDE 80GB HDD (channel 1 slave) - media files only

500GB SATA hdd (channel 2 master) - empty, new drive
200GB sata hdd (channel 2 slave) - windows xp still installed

i went ahead and installed a new copy of windows xp to the new hard drive. everything went fine. after installation the boot screen showed two copies of windows, and the default (first) one was the NEW installation on the 500GB drive.

after going in i moved all the files from the 200GB drive to the new drive, and deleted all the folders from the old drive, including the Windows folder from it.

i kept restarting as i installed updates and there was no problem...everything working great.

then i realize that in my BIOS, the settings were to boot from the 200GB drive as it had been in the past. i changed that to boot from the 500GB drive (which has the windows files after all!) and i got "disk boot failure, please insert a boot disk and press enter".

if i change the boot order so the 200GB drive loads first, it goes into windows (from the 500gb drive!)... Read more

I've just created a Windows 10 installation USB using the Media Creation Tool.

I then booted it on my Windows 8.1 Pro desktop PC just to check the USB stick would boot. It booted to the first installation Windows 10 installation window as expected. I didn't want to do anything else so I just removed the USB drive and hit the PC restart button.

On restart, the PC did a chkdsk scan of drive C: and then started automatic repair for no apparent reason!

After a few minutes of watching the automatic repair rotating circle, I just powered off the PC and restarted the PC and it booted fine straight into Windows 8.1 as normal.

Why would removing the Windows 10 USB then pressing the reset button cause chkdsk to run and automatic repair to be invoked on restart?

Perhaps it had already begun rebuild boot files.
You probably should have aborted the install, closing the windows then clicking 'Yes' when prompted 'Are you sure you want to quit the installation?'
Are you booting to the USB trough the BIOS or are you opening the USB and clicking on the 'Setup.exe'?

Hello,

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I've been trying to fix my laptop (Acer Aspire) for about 2 months, and it's been a bit of a saga. I've tried lots of things, and have persisted because it's seemed like I've been gradually honing in on a solution, rather than chasing a lost cause.

I was on Vista, which came with the laptop, but then the laptop got very ill, to the point where I wanted to do the Acer factory restore, but this didn't work, nor did any of the various recovery options in Windows. I was worried that the hard drive was physically damaged, so I wanted to try formatting it, which I decided to try and do in the course of installing Windows 7. This didn't work, so instead I formatted the hard drive using Ubuntu, and then tried Windows 7 again. That didn't work, because the hard drive needed to be NTFS, so I re-formatted it as NTFS using GParted.

However, Windows 7 install still isn't working: it goes most of the way but then just hangs indefinitely on a black screen with 'Setup is updating registry files' written on it. I've googled this and it seems that this is quite a common problem when installing W7. However, the problem that I have is that all of the solutions offered are to do with booting up as normal and changing things in Control Panel etc, which obviously I can't do.

I can go into more details about what has happened if needed, but basically the state of play now is:

CPU gets hot while it's running, even when it's not over-clocked. You can use the stock cooler until the H100 arrives. Before replacing the stock cooler w/ the Corsair, you'll need to remove residual thermal compound on the CPU. Looks like the H100 has thermal compound pre-applied.

There's a brief installation video on Corsair's site, have you checked it out?

It's not real hard, just read the instructions carefully. They won't be real descriptive. You Tube has a bunch of videos to show you how. They are good coolers. Get some quality thermal paste instead of what comes with it. This is a different socket, but the same process.

I am building a PC that includes an Intel i5 CPU and an Asus P8 Z77-V LX mobo. Due to better fitting of the connecting wires. I placed the CPU cooler/fan on the CPU with the top pointing left or to the back of the case.
As the top of the mobo is pointing to the top of the case. The top of the CPU cooler/fan is pointed to the back of the case. Will this work without a problem? Will it damage anything to try it?

That is actually the correct way do install an HSF since it blows the hot air towards the back of the case and through the vents.

I then partitioned and formatted it and it worked great, until it got to 100% then the whole thing froze. No mouse not tab no nothing. Had to do a hard shutdown. Now when I boot up it gets to the screen with the blue bar scrolling across on the bottom.


After that it flashes the BSOD. Then it restarts itself. It then asks me if I want to start in safemode and all that kind of stuff. I click on any of them and goes back to the windows screen. Up pops the BSOD and start the whole process over again.

After selecting boot cdrom at the boot option window it always says cdrom is unavailable.

Hello Folks,I ordered and received a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. It will not fit in my case because of the fan mounted on the side panel of the case. I'm a little leery about buying another cooler. I don't want to go into the CPU cooler resale business.I'm thinking about ordering the Cooler Master GeminII S. It's only about 3 inches high, so that should be no problem.

Why do you think you need to replace your current cooler?  Do you have software installed to monitor temperatures?  The fan on the side panel is close to the CPU, right? So, it aids the cooling of the CPU.  How many case fans, other than the one on the side panel, are installed in your computer?

Hello Lenovo! I've got a strange question for you!  I've got a G500 lappy with i7 3612qm 35W CPU, I'm so satisfied with it, but under 100% load the temp goes up to 85 C degrees and it kind of bothers me. I want to keep the load temp under 80, so do you think is there any possibility to replace the G500 35W TDP heatsink and fan with the G510 47W cooler unit? The build of these two model is pretty much the same (I could not check the interior, because all the vids and even the Lenovo maintenance manual referring to the G500 as same as the G510) so the cooler units might be compatibile with each other. These extra 12Ws of cooling capacity would come handy under heavy load. What do you think, are they swappable? Thanks for your answer! Adam

I upgraded my GPU recently and noticed that my CPU fan was making more noise than I remembered - sort of a droning noise.  I checked my CPU temps and discovered that, at idle, the CPU was hitting 38-42C.
I decided to upgrade my cooling.  The main limitation (besides the fact that Dell has a non-standard CPU backplate setup) is the somewhat narrow case on the XPS 8900 doesn't allow installation of most of the inexpensive high-performance coolers because they are too tall by 1/2" - 3/4".  Then I found the Cyrorig H7, which has three heat pipes, a huge heatsink, and 120mm fan all in a package that is "only" 145mm high - just short enough to fit in the case.  I installed it yesterday and it works GREAT.  Very happy with it, initially at least.
I also swapped out the stock Sunon case fan for a Cooler Master Blade Master 92mm fan, which is quieter but similar CFM specs.
Overall the computer is now quieter at 100% load than it was at idle before.  And my CPU temps have dropped by 15 degrees C.  Great upgrade.  I made a video on how I did it here:

The 1 fan which is mounted is intake.

If i were to install another fan to make it dual fan, would both be intake or would one be exhaust and intake etc. As in going with the push pull flow?????

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

Hello.I am trying to install the Intel LGA 775 cooler where you have to push four hooks into the motherboard and then turn to lock them in. I have secured two but having problems with the other two. I pushed and turned but they did not lock in to the motherboard. On one lever the jaws at the bottom have opened with the black inner protruding. The other is in the secure position (ie the arrow facing to the left aligned with the cooler. I cannot see a way of turning them in reverse either to secure the two remaining levers or the remove the cooler. Can anybody help?

Answer:LGA 775 CPU Cooler problem

Hi AqarrianJust had the same problem myself.If you unlock the retainer by grasping the body with one hand and pull the centre with the other you will find that you can pull the centre pin out which will allow the jaws to retract and then be inserted in the Mobo, trust me it does work, I've just finished building my new PC and am currently loading software.Merry Christmas

Hi everyone,Has any one here owned a Zalman CNPS7700 cpu cooler for the 775 socket.My one doesnt fit my case cos of the psu comes in the way and i am thinking is there a case big enough to fit it in.Please dont recommend me any other cooler as i already have the freezer 7 and i have got temperature problems. THe inside of my case gets really hot even though i have an exaust.Probably a bigger case would be better as it will have moe space in it for airflow.Thanks

So this is my first time building a system. I was installing a cooler for my cpu last night (amd athlon 64 2800+) and everything was going fine. I installed it and then tested it. I pushed the power button and it ran for about thirty seconds and then it shut off unexpectedly, I did the test again and it did the same thing. Turns out I installed the cooler wrong. So I reinstalled it and it works fine now.
What I want to know, in those couple of times I tested it out could I have damaged my cpu by letting it overheat like that? It's still booting up so I think it might be fine. Is there some way I can check to see if it's damaged?
 

Answer:A little problem installing the cpu cooler.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

I wouldn`t worry to much as AMD cpu`s have a safety cut out on them.

If it`s booting up fine now then everything seems to be in order.

Hi, I have a problem where i turn on my computer (either from cold or standby) and the PSU clicks on and off constantly. After a while of letting it click on and off, flicking the master power switch on the psu and hitting the on switch, it will eventually half boot.
In this half booted state the Psu l.e.d's stay lit, harddrive spools up, case fans DO NOT turn on, cpu fans DO turn on. I get a red warning light on MOBO, a white warning light that indicates either PSU/CPU/CPU cooler problems. No MOBO postcode (00). No feed goes to monitor. If left in this state for 5-10 mintues, then turned off and on again, i get a normal boot and everything is fine.
My cpu and ram is overclocked but i have tried reverting and still get the same issues. All help is greatly appreciated as the next step is repair shop which costs a decent amount of cash. Thanks!

Green light comes on the MOBO and the VGA and stays on but nothing happens when I push the power button. (no beep, no fans, nothing..dead) When I installed the CPU cooler I plugged it up as instructed but their is a SATA plug that is not connected. The instructions said nothing about this, it hangs off of the same pigtail that the fan plug is on off of the cooler itself. Does this need to plugged in? How can I troubleshoot the problem?

I still cant figure of why this happens. Does someone has a method to solve it and get my system running again.

Answer:Fresh Installation not Booting

Hi Insoft and welcome to SF!
The error code indicates that the issue is related to file corruption. Just to add to what you have dont to fix this, most likely a Repair installation would take care of this problem.
You can also try to press F8 during the boot process and then select the option "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
Otherwise you should follow the repair steps to do a restore or to copy the file from a known good location.
If there are bad sectors on your hard disk, then running CHKDSK /R from the command prompt would also fix this as it did for you.
Let us know the results.
Hope that helps.

After sorting out my problem installing multiple Hard Drives and getting past that I am now faced with another problem, which is that no screen is displayed on start-up to allow selecting other drives to boot from.

I can select other drives to boot from if I boot up into the default drive and select "Change PC Settings" but that is very slow and allows mistakes if one is tired.

I think the reason for the problem is because I installed all the drives on their own separately (took out the other drives) and they are now all installed properly except for this problem.

I only need to boot from the default drive when I need to do something with that particular drive or to boot from "Windows 7 Ultimate" I tried to fix the problem with Drive Freshen (I think its called) but that didn't work.

Is there a way to fix this problem and have the screen that offers to allow booting from another drive added to the default drive, without doing a total re-install please ?

On a multi boot system it is the first screen to display before booting the OS, and shows all the installed Drives in boxes with their names (labels) on, so that you can choose which Drive to boot from..

Many thanks for any help

I have an old install of XP left on an additional harddrive after I got a bigger drive and reinstalled... but now all of a sudden that's the only one it'll boot to! I had some other issues (caused, believe it or not by AVG).. and in the process of that I ran a repair installation over my new and proper XP.. with all the other drives disconnected.. and it was working fine, but as soon as I hook up the other drives... BLAM it's booting into the old install again. Now in disk management it's listed as the Boot Drive and the one that SHOULD be System is listed as active... i read something about making it active to make it boot from that drive... but it's not working.. what is the easiest way to modify where it boots from?

Hi everybody,
I'm new to this forum and tried to find the answer for my problem.
I have a Windows 10 pro computer which booted from ssd and have 2 oldskool disc's in software raid for programfiles. I tried to run the KB4041676 update but for some reason it failed. After the failed update, the computer did not wanted to boot anymore because it couldn't find the boot devices. (Inaccessible boot device error)
After fiddeling around for a couple of days to get it going again I gave up and made a partition copy of the old install to another oldskool drive (hoping I could pull user profile and settings from it programs installed.)
Once I was done with the partition copy, I removed the disc with the copy and did a full clean install of the latest windows 10 (1709?) and updated it. The 2 disc's in raid a working perfectly once mounted.
I made a new user (to be sure it does not give any conflict) and the computer runs fine.
Now is my question, is it possible to extract/transfer the user folder and settings from the old install? (Partition copy) to the fresh install? I had a lot of programs installed like office, Adobe and much more and the biggest part of those installed programs are on the 2 disc raid as that is untouched.
Who can help me out so I do not have to reinstall all of them.
I would also like to "import" the old user folder/profile from the old install.
Kind regards,
Ralph

Answer:XP PRO installation disk not booting on certain laptop

and welcome to the Forum

If you have the BIOS set to boot first from the CD/DVD drive, and you do not get the prompt to "Press any key to boot from CD" either the drive or the disc is faulty.

Since the pc will boot from an original installation disc, the drive has likely weakened with age and will not recognize a copy. . . That is not unusual.

Most newer BIOS allow an Alternate method for SATA . . Go into the bios and check the "Sata Operation" setting,

change it to "Raid Autodetect/ATA if it is not already. Now try to install XP ( could be IDE Mode, Compatibility Mode or Legacy Mode - different BIOS use different terms )

some will say IDE instead of ATA)

Hello,
I own a macbook pro (Core Duo, 2 gig ram, 160gb hd). I am going off of the site.... http://wiki.onmac.net/index.php/Triple_Boot_via_BootCamp. I have installed the rEFIt loader and windows XP. Mac and Windows work fine. But i am not sure how to go about Linux. Apparently, the linux boot loading system and the mac os x boot loading system aren't the same and this can cause conflicts when trying to get a boot loader together?? Well, the site tells me to install linux/lilo and do some crazy configurating with them. The configurations of lilo i am sure i can figure out... I just am not sure where to begin... Am i supposed to install linux and lilo then in linux (through option/alt and loading that partition) am i supposed to change the lilo loader? Or how am i supposed to deal with Lilo. Is anybody able to decipher what they are saying or able to help me in another way going forward with what i already am working with.
I am trying to get Ubuntu on my system.

~Background~

There were some power failures last week which caused some errors on my hdd and I spent 3 days reading this forum, trying to fix my windows 7 boot.

I finally fixed it after running chkdisk through a Windows repair disk after trying various other solutions to no avail. Thankfully, no files were lost (Besides the most important stuff was backed up)

I have an anxiety disorder and I work solely on the PC.
This incident was very hard on my health so I want to make sure that whatever happens I can get to work.

So I had an idea.

~Idea~

A while back I was reading about dual booting and it seemed quite interesting.
So, I've had this idea.

I have a 1 TB HDD.

It has two partitions, "System Reserved" and "C".

I create a new partition called G of let's say 100GB.

I then transfer my music, videos, photos to an external drive.

I uninstall all unnecessary programms/games from C.

I make sure C has about 50-60 GB of used space.

Afterwards, I make a system image using either the Windows 7 built-in tool
or Macrium Reflect/Acronis and transfer all my media back to C.

Could I then restore that system image on the new partition?

The end result I want to achieve is to have a "backup windows 7 installation"
If something happens to my Main installation, I can get to work on the second one.
Of course I backup my work to an external drive everyday.
I don't want to lose any more working days...

Answer:bootmgr missing when booting from xp installation cd

It means your computer is still trying to boot from the hard drive, not from the CD.
You need to go into the BIOS Setup, set the CD-ROM drive as the first boot device, then press F10 to "Save and exit".

When booting from a Windows installation CD you should get a prompt to "Press any key to boot from CD". If that prompt doesn't appear it means your PC is not booting from the CD.

Hi all,

I'm in a bit of a situation of my own causing here. I had a lot of trouble opening up my new laptop to install an nvme drive (HP among others has begun using locktite like solutions to render maintenance and repair of devices difficult), so I installed the nvme (the original boot drive was a 7200 rpm hdd), and used samsungs data migration tool to clone the drive. And put the machine together again.

I can boot from the SSD after using bcdedit, but it gives me an OS choice that I would like to remove at bootup and remove the windows install from the hdd without removing or disconnecting the drive.

The crux of my issue is that I seek a solution that does not require the removal of the laptops backplate again to disconnect the drive. The cloned drive is working perfectly.

Answer:Booting from cloned SSD, removal of old installation

Post image of disk partitions from disk management. I fear the boot files are on hdd.

If so, we will need to move them to the ssd before wiping hdd or else pc will not boot.

There is no need to remove drives - problem is easily sorted, but we need to check your disk partitions first to do it in right order.

I have a windows xp installation cd extracted to a partition on a computer which I want to netboot from. Then I've netbooted into WinPe which is apparently able to invoke a windows installation given a source directory. The problem is, I'm stuck in volume Q: - which is a ram-disk and I haven't the slightest clue how I'd swap over to the volume I've extracted the xp install disk into.

My computer is currently set up to dual boot between Windows 7 and Windows XP. I mainly use the XP partition as storage, while I run the Windows 7 partition most of the time. The version of Windows 7 that is currently installed is an RC version (Build 7127).

I recently decided that it was time to upgrade to the full version of Windows 7 (32-bit, to keep things simple). The operating system installed with no apparent errors, until I tried selecting Windows 7 from the Windows Boot Manager at start-up. The Windows XP partition (listed as Earlier Version of Windows) still works, but the Windows 7 partition gives an error (Status: 0xc0000225). The info it gives is: "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". The given error has something to do with asking me to unplug anything I had recently plugged into the computer (USB device/MP3 player), but I haven't plugged anything in, so that led me to believe it was a driver problem. However, it seems odd that the RC version of Windows 7 works, while the final version does not. So, I re-installed the RC version so I could use the computer again (the XP partition has driver problems that cause Very strange errors on the internet, so I prefer to not use it, but don't look into those errors too much... I only use that partition for storage now)

I tried reinstalling multiple times, and I tried using the Startup Recovery tool that's on the installation disk, but it couldn't detect any problems. Also, ... Read more

Frozen black screen on startup

My computer was only running firefox and then completely froze out and I couldnt open task manager, switch users or anything. I let the computer sit there for a while not wanting to click anything thinking it would unfreeze by itself in a short while, and then suddenly a noise started coming out at regular intervals. Then the computer just switched off.

On restart I got a BSOD that i wrote down but ive lost the paper for the error message now. I ran the Recovery Console from the XP CD and chkdsk /r and it finished. When i restarted I got another BSOD:

"UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"

I ran chkdsk /r using the Recovery Console again, with it completing and then this time on restart I got another BSOD message.

"Stop:C0000135 (unable to locate component) This application has failed to start because USP10.dll was found. Re-installing the application may fix this"

I ran chkdsk again a few times and nothing happened, still getting the same BSOD message on restart.

After more googling I found out to run a repair installation from the XP CD instead of the Recovery Console, the website I used just told me to "continue with on-screen instructions".

I built Steve Walton's 8/2014 "Budget Box" with the Kaveri A8-7600 and the recommended motherboard, memory, SSD, optical drive, case, and monitor. No overclocking. Beautiful to look at. The very first time I powered up I was able to install Windows 7 64-bit, but it crashed during the giant Windows Update process and would not reboot. Assuming that the installation was corrupted by this, I tried re-installing Windows 7, and was able to reformat the drive but it crashed during the "completing installation" step. Now I can no longer boot from the Windows 7 CD at all; at the "Starting Windows" screen it bluescreens 0x3b, 0x50, or 0x7e + ACPI.sys.

Hello guys, This is my first post, so I am sorry if I will make any mistakes. The reason I am writing this post is because I can't find a solution to my problem. In January 2015 I have bought my ThinkPad Yoga s1, which by the way is a great laptop, except one problem. In April 2016 my laptop started overheating, even in standby and with the fan working. The laptop was in warranty and also now it still has 317 days left, but i have personal data on and I don't want to format and install the Windows again. Even if do this, i am sure the guys there will say, it's normal for the laptop to heat up. So I went ahead and disassembled it, thinking that it had dust in it or the thermal paste was not doing the job. I have cleaned the laptop which by the way didn't have that much dust in it, cleaned the heatsink and processor to add the new thermal paste. Nothing has change, still overheating. At that moment I realised that the heatsink is not doing the job, transporting the heat from the processor to the radiator where the fan blows. I knew about this problem because in the past I had an Acer that had a similar problem, but after 5 years of using it roughly. I had bought a new heatsink changed it added my thermal paste and it worked perfect until this month. So it worked almost one year  Now I have bought a new heatsink, changed it and it works OK again. But I wonder for how long??? Down below is a phot... Read more

Hi, I am using lenovo y570 and I have a problem with my cooler sometimes (pretty often) when I put my pc on sleep mode. Then cooler sometimes won't start. I measure my CPU temperature with CoreTemp32, which shows >80 degrees while I am playing a video game. Usually this does not happen as my cooler works/works faster during the game. It seems to be a driver bug. another little problem I have is the touchpad. If I disable my touchpad (FN + F6) and lock my pc (win + L) and login back then touchpad is reactivated. After a while my hands contact the touchpad and some unwanted "clicks" happen... It would be nice to prevent the reactivation of touchpad somehow and autoenable it only when I unplug the mouse. If this is somehow possible through settings, it would be great. Thanks for any suggestions!

I want to install Windows 7 on an HP Pavillion Desktop which happens to have a
Sata Harddisk with an IDE DVDRW.
I set the boot Priority to the DVDRW then the Harddisk and placed the Windows disk on the dvd drive to boot from it.
But it is not booting from the CD as booting still goes to the Harddisk.
My understanding is that SATA takes First Priority.
Well in such a scenario what does one do in order to install Windows?
Please note both drives are detected in the BIOS

Thank you all for your advise
 

Answer:Solved: New Windows Installation Booting Issues

SATA doesn't take priority, I've installed Windows 7 numerous times from PATA/IDE drives with a SATA drive.

Are you sure the DVD drive works? Can it read a DVD properly? Also you mention CD, but Windows 7 comes on a DVD.

Also since this is an HP you can press ESC, F10, or F12 and choose a one time boot device rather than changing BIOS boot order.

My machine won't boot up unless I disconnect all of the Hard Drives. I still have my two SSD's (RAID 1) that have Windows 7 Professional installed still running fine.

I had one hard drive ST4000NM0023 (4TB) fail (had four of them), and so I replaced two of them with ST10000NM0096 (10TB) drives.

I had software backing up the failed drive, which was my D: (Documents & Program Files) drive. The backup drive F: (D Backup) has now been renamed my D: Drive, and I transferred all of it's files to a new F: backup drive.

I had to copy & paste everything from one folder over to another one of the same name because Windows 7 had automatically installed new folders with the proper icons on them (as per attached image). I had two of "My Pictures", "My Documents", etc.., with one having an icon and one not.

It seems like I had to move my files to the new folders or else my other programs couldn't seem to find the files they needed even though the the folders had the same name, minus the icon.

Copying files from folder to folder was very time consuming, and used all of the systems memory. I would successfully reboot the system after each successful transfer so I could restore the RAM back to 64GB.

I left the largest folder "My Documents" till last. After I successfully transferred the files in this folder over to the new "My Documents" folder with the icon on it, I tried rebooting the system and it would not work. I ... Read more

Doesn't the Asus R540LJ laptop come with Windows 10 already installed and working? Or, let us know if the machine did not come with an installed Operating System.

Is this a brand new SSD drive? Has it been initialized?

If not, and you first want to rule out issues with the SSD, CrystalDiskInfo can help you check the Solid State Drive's health:

There is also SSD Life, or, check if the manufacturer of the drive has its own utility.

Hi,

I'm trying to install a Windows 7 Profession 64 bit version over a Windows 7 Home Edition 32 bit version.

I know this isn't possible without a clean install, but my problem is, the installation won't boot whatsoever.

Two days ago I installed a fresh copy of W7 32 bit over a vista 32 bit with a flash drive on a laptop with no problem, so I know how you make a bootable USB.

This time however, using the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool didn't cut it for me as, even though it was prioritzed in BIOS, nothing would happen and W7 32 bit would just boot like normal.

So I tried to manually set up the bootable flash drive, which also didn't work.

After a lot of searching on google, I learned the problem might have something to do with the bootsector not able to be run on a 32 bit OS.

So, I found another guide: How to Install Windows 7 or Vista from Bootable Portable USB Flash Memory Key or Hard Disk Drive ? My Digital Life

I used the W7 32 bit version I used on the laptop 2 days ago, and put the bootsector of that version on the flash drive with CMD.

Again, this didn't work as the computer would just boot windows 7 32 bit like usual (and again, I adjusted the priority in BIOS)

Now I got enough of trying the flash drive to work, I tried burning the ISO file on a DVD using Imgburn.

Burning the DVD went smoothly and I quickly had a DVD with the W7 64 bit installation files.

This however, didn't solve anything as (again, prioritzing the DVD) W7 ... Read more

I'm using a Fuijtsu Siemens Scaleo P 2540 system.
Due to recent harddrive failure I got a new harddrive on which I installed Windows 7 Ultimate.
The installation was a big struggle, but after a few tries it looked like the OS was running.

But after installing the latest updates, AVG, iTunes and a restart or 4 it doesn't boot anymore.
Sometimes the BIOS doesn't even show the harddisk in the boot menu.
I got the DISK READ ERROR message a few times as well.
I did run chkdsk and it completed succesfully (removed a couple of corrupt indexes, no bad sectors).
Sometimes it does get to the point of showing the Windows logo and the STARTING WINDOWS. It doesn't freeze, but goes on for about 6 minutes and then reboots. Other times it doesn't load the logo and only displays STARTING WINDOWS. And if I try to open the REPAIR function, the operation quits with the message: Unexpected I/O error has occured.

Some of the errors above did occur during the installation progress (during the 1st or 2nd restart).

CPU: Q6600 2,4 gHz quad
RAM: 2x 2048 Mb 677 mHz ddr2

2) Could a new SATA-cable (no visual damage) solve this?
3) I've been struggling with this for a week now. Getting really sick too, but I really want to tackle this.
Is there something else I should look into?

If you go into device manager (Start > Run > devmgmt.msc) do you see the camera? If you see it can you right click on it and then disable it?

Also if that doesn't work you can try:

Go to Start > Run > type "services.msc" w/o quotes. Find the "Shell Hardware Detection" service and disable it and reboot into normal mode. Then see if the balloon pops up again or not. If it works, try re-enabling the service and then reboot and see if everything works.

Hi,

I've got a problem with my Windows 7 installation in that - it wont boot! Either in normal or safe mode!

I've tracked the problem down to a driver - CTMMount.sys which was installed by a recent installation of Comodo Time Machine - which has since been uninstalled but doesnt look like the uninstallation has worked correctly.

Therefore I could do with editing the registry/startup procedure so that this file doesnt attempt to load and then I can get back into Windows 7 - has anyone any idea how I can do this?

Thanks

I am trying to do a clean install for Windows XP. I inserted the bootable CD and started the computer. It asked "press any key to boot from cd" as usual. I pressed a key and "inspecting hardware configuration" appeared.

Unfortunately just a second after that screen turned blank and stayed so. I tried many times and waited a while also. Didn't help.

If it is relevant, Windows Vista is currently installed to the computer. I'd like to format the C: drive and substitute Vista to XP again. Thought, that it doesn't matter when running XP installation from boot cd, but who knows.

My mother-in-law's computer started doing that. Turned out it was the keyboard was physically bad, believe it or not. I would recommend try starting it up with no keyboard or mouse connected and see if it stays on. Also make sure all the internal components are firmly seated. Also try starting it up without the USB flash drive inserted and see if it will stay on the No Boot Device warning screen without rebooting on it's own.
