"Press CTRL+ENTER to send messages" unchecks every day on Outlook 2007

Question: "Press CTRL+ENTER to send messages" unchecks every day on Outlook 2007

Hi everybody,

I have a problem and was wondering if any of you experts would be able to help me please?

I'm using Outlook 2007 at work and each day when I log in I have two problems:

1. "Press CTRL+ENTER to send messages" under tools\options\email options\advanced email options is unchecked (even though I've checked it myself the day before)

and

2. When I click on calendar, somebody elses calendar opens and the check to show 'My Calendar' has been removed.

These aren't deal breakers but they annoy me every day!!

Can anybody help me please? :cry
Thanks,
Anna

Preferred Solution: "Press CTRL+ENTER to send messages" unchecks every day on Outlook 2007

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I have an ASUS A8V-VM SE Socket 939 Micro ATX Motherboard - UDMA133, SATA. My os is Windows XP Pro x64.

I installed a NORCO-4618 PCI-X / PCI eSATA / SATA II / SATA I Controller Card (RAID 0/1/5/10/JBOD).

It's working fine but in order for the controller card to work, I needed to install SoftRAID5. Because of this, when I boot up, a window appears for about 15 to 20 seconds which waits for me to set up a RAID Array. It says "Press Ctrl+S or F4 to enter RAID Utility." I don't want to set up a RAID Array. I went into it anyway to see if I could turn it off but the only option was to set up a RAID Array.

I also went into CMOS and BIOS to see if I could turn this off so that I wouldn't have to wait 15 to 20 seconds for the window to pass but I couldn't find anything that resembled what I was looking for. I might just not be seeing it. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have an IBM thinkpad (a friend of mine) that I'm trying to see what's wrong with it.  Whenever you start it up, it runs through the diagnostic tests and eventually provides the message listed in my subject.  I attempted to press f12 during one of the reboots since i saw something on here from someone else that had luck but didn't really see anything i felt comfortable about changing.  After i exited, it began rebooting and displayed the error "No operating system found".  I then turned the power off and began receiving the same message as i originally got "a disk read error occurred".  Before i received the computer, my friend was told the hard drive was shot and there was no hope in retrieving any files.  Is this true?  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you,Frank

When I switch the notebook on it displays the "BOOTMGR IS MISSING"... message. I cannot get on my computer passed that screen, apart from when I press escape after pressing Ctrl, Alt, Del. It gives me 4 options ... " F1 system information, F2 system diagnostics, F9 boot device options, F10 BIOS setup."

There is no disc drive so what should I do, and what is the easiest way to fix this issue.

Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails. I have already deleted and reset the account & have changed ISP email password so we know it's the right PW, sort of at a loss right now. Any help greatly appreciated TY in advance.
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails

Removing and setting the account back up was the right move. Some people swore a reboot was needed after this was done.

Just to be 100% on the password, try going to a web service like mail2web.com and see if you can retrieve your email. At least then you're sure the email and password are working just to eliminate the obvious.

I also read that if your mail servers settings are "mail.yourisp.com" for example, remove the mail.

Are you accessing the mail from multiple devices? That can cause an issue.

I can disable the pop-up error box by unchecking "Show add-in user interface errors" under "In all Microsoft Office Programs:" in Tools/Options/"Other" Tab/"Advanced Options..." button.

I'd like to know if there is a solution for this issue other than turning off the notification of the add-in user interface error?

Answer:Office 2007 Outlook "Send to Bluetooth" Error

This issue is resolve for now. The problem is a Bluetooth driver that causes issues with MS Office as well. See the link below for more details:

Word 2007 Copy and Paste Issue

In addition to disabling the "Show Add-In user interface errors" option as described in post 1, you can disable the "Send to Bluetooth" feature under Tools/Trust Center/Add-Ins/Manage: COM Add-ins (drop down menu and click "Go")/uncheck "Send to Bluetooth."

With Win 7, you need to right click the application exe file, select "Properties"/Compatibility and check the box to run the program as an administrator to be able to uncheck the "Send to Bluetooth" options in all the Office applications.

Hi I run Windows Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2007. I've set up POP3 access for Gmail and to download mail from mail.bigpond.com (an Australian ISP). Initial setup was fine and I can send test messages to myself.

Recently I've had trouble sending (but not receiving) email via Outlook. The following error message is shown:

Sending' reported error (0x80042109) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) email server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

This message occurs for both my email accounts.

If I reboot the computer, then sometimes the mail will be sent successfully. I've checked the "account settings" on Outlook- and they are exactly as those given by my ISP/Gmail. But when I click on "test account settings", the test message can't be sent.

What's going on?!
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 "Sending reported error"- can receive mail but can't send!!

Angela,

Refer to the earlier query in this section dated 10th April under heading " OE suddenly asking for Logon Password" which shows possible ways of overcoming this . I reckon it's server problem as I had it re-occur a couple of days ago . My Mail is Btinternet which started rejecting my outward messages. I know that BT uses Yahoo so Isubstituted "mail.yahoo.com" for "mail.btinternet.com" ( OE/Tools/Accounts/Properties/Servers) and it immediately started working . So whatever the ISP says it IS their fault and somehow their systems start rejecting things for no valid reason .

My system crashed recently and I have had to restore everything. I reinstalled Outlook 2007 and was able to restore my PST file from a backup I had using the genie backup product. All my files and folders are now restored.

When I click on the send/receive button, I get this message "The operation failed. An object could not be found"

I deleted my email setup account (I'm downloading from my att account) and re set it up using the instructions on the att site. I also ran the 'repair' function off the Office CD and did the Office diagnostics.

Any suggestions?

This problem started out on one of the machines in my office, now it's happening on several of them.

Machine config:
- Outlook 2007
- POP account
- antivirus regularly running/updating/scanning

Symptoms:
- User is running outlook like normal, then all the sudden Outlook gets stuck "Preparing to send / receive". Clicking the Send/Receive button does nothing, and it just sits there forever, apparently never actually making contact with the servers or doing anything at all.

My fix:
- I have to close down Outlook, but that's not enough.
- Open task manager, even though Outlook is closed, there is still an instance of it running on the machine.
- Manually close that extra instance, restart Outlook.

Then all the sudden it works, it sends and receives just fine. I thought the first user may have had a virus, but I've scanned ALL the machines in our office with Symantec Antivirus and nothing came up.

Also, this doesn't appear to ever happen on the two machines in the office who are running IMAP accounts.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2007 stuck "preparing to send / receive". Requires manual task end.

I have a problem that I was wondering whether anyone could help me with. : D

Here's the deal, I am a semi noob when it comes to computing in this sense and this is my situation:

My computer became seriously screwed yesterday and so I restarted it a couple of times by holding the power button - this then did something bad to fundamental parts of the computer. On boot up, my computer would hang at the POST screen just before detecting drives.

I read on the internet to unplug the CMOS battery and replace it. That worked, and the computer now recognizes that I have two 160GB HITACHI Deskstar Sata 2 hard drives, the computer also recognizes that they are in raid 0 configuration.

But when it comes down to booting from these HDDs it gives me the "A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart." error. It just tries to boot from CD, then if there are no CDs it tries the Hard disks and I get this error.

I also cannot boot from the XP install CD, it just says "Press any key to boot CD" and when I do it just gives me the disk read error again.

I have absolutely nothing on this computer so I don't have any data to lose, I can do whatever this end so even the most drastic things don't matter.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have to offer. : )

I had my second laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

My problem occurs when I try to downgarde [clean installation] to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit (using CD / DVD installation). This is what I do: -

1. Select "Custom (Advanced)"
2. Select "Particion 2 (Primary)"
3. Then it erorr at "expanding the Windows files". (I forget what the erorr) & told me to restart.

Then, Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart error appear.

Then what I do after that is, try to install the with my other version of Windows, the Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit (this one using USB for Installation), I repeat the same way as above, and really surprised me everything went smoothly, no error.

If is the DVD ( Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit ) is main problem, but it when okay on my dad & bro pc & I just bought it 3 months ago.

What do the drives look like when you try to start the install? I always prefer to have blank hard drives, and then use diskpart to partition the drive the way I want before letting Window's installer to continue.

On an unrelated note, what programs do you have that aren't compatible?

I have a home built machine with an Gigabyte Mother board, 4 GB of RAM, Pentium D 3.4 GHz proc, Zalman 650 watt power supply running Winoidws 7 32 bit with all the latest updates, however, BIOS is unconfirmed. OS drive is a 650 GB SATA with plenty of space (at least 400 GB free) and the CD/DVD Rom is IDE.

My GPU card needed cleaning, so I removed it by disconnecting the Mobo power cable, the GPU powe cable (to the card) and the ATX 12v cable (this was necessary to remove the GPU card).

After cleaning and replacing the card, and assuring all the connectors were securly fastened, I received the above error.

Windows will occassionally get past the start up logo and the screen will go black with only the mouse present (slow start up?) OR the drive light will just be lit solid with the occasional access flicker.

Answer:"A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart."

Using another system - one that that one cannot touch (no offense), download Killdisk and use ImgBurn to burn the CD-R or DVD-R ISO (or other - I always use -R).

Then boot your system up with KillDisk and you'll see the menu - 1 of the options (apologies, don't recall which off hand) will allow you to view partitions to see what's on them.

If you can boot from that, then use non-MS OS (Linux ?) to copy files out. I am unfamiliar with Linux and procedures, but I will be glad to request help if you can view the drive with KillDisk and find files you wish to try & save.

That was some "bickering thread", BTW - I guess some need HUGE fonts like that either to emphasize their point (like some YELLING) - or maybe they lost their glasses!

One thing I can tell you - the error message that you are receiving is IMHO purely related to the DVD/CD drive - CTRL-ALT-DELETE will not re-boot the hard drive. It is from the days of DOS and floppy drives. You are probably receiving that message b/c the system cannot find what it needs on the hard drive to boot - i.e., it is not recognizing it a MS Windows installation. It also could be the media - the DVD/ CD.

KillDisk - http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm

Make bootable KillDisk ISO CD w/ ImgBurn -
ImgBurn - http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

For info - KillDisk WILL NOT automatically start deleting files when you boot with it - you'll see the menu.

Hi,

I tried to install windows 7 on my computer and it caused an error and would not load. So i tried to install a fresh copy of windows XP SP3. When the computer performed it's normal reboot during the installation the computer hangs during the BIOS and gives the following error message "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart".

Any suggestions on how to fix this.

Answer:"A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart"

It sounds like the HDD is failing. Restart with a Windows disc again and do a Full Format, not a Quick Format. The full format will identify any bad sectors and mark them as such and not copy data to them. If there are too many bad sectors, then it will not format. You will need to buy a new HDD.

My computer has recently started giving me an error message that says "A disk read error occurred. Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart." during startup.

The first time this came up I took it into the repair shop the morning after. They turned the computer on, it started normally, and after keeping it overnight they returned it to me saying that they could find nothing wrong with it.

It worked normally for about 2 days after that and then when I was using it the system suddenly became unresponsive. I was forced to turn it off via the button on the front of my tower, and when I turned it back on the disk read error message came back up.
The next morning when I turned it on it was fine.

This process of it becoming unresponsive, giving me the error, and being fine by the next morning continued for a couple of days until now when it only shows me the error.

Help?

Answer:"A disk read error occurred. Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart."

Do you have backups? First thing I would suspect is the hard drive is dying, or at the very least, some important boot sector info is going bad. Try a utility boot disk of any variety like Parted Magic Live CD or make a UBCD4Win CD if you have access to a windows XP disc or image, or use a Linux LiveCD, to see if you can get access to the contents of the drive if need be. Or alternately, pull the drive and attach it as a secondary data drive to another system and see if its readable.

Based on the results of your attempts at access, further advice can be given as to what to do about the drive if that indeed turns out to be the problem.

Dell Dimension E520. This is obviously a hardware problem as this error comes up as soon as the POST hands off to the hard disk.

On a cold boot, I get "Disk Read Error, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart your computer". Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del restarts the system and it always starts up and runs without incident after this point. Performance and everytng else is plenty acceptable and error free.

I have run Seatools on the Seagate hard disk and it passes all tests.

What is causing this error?

How can it be prevented?

When I searched this, Google came up with zero results. I have no idea what "EBIPO" is, and neither does the internet, apparently.

Two days ago, I was in the process of verifying Windows 7 (because I got the "windows 7 is not genuine" message) and then when I restarted as I was asked, that message came up and I haven't been able to get into the computer since.

I have tried booting directly from a Windows 7 disk, and the computer skips past it and returns to the message. I've tried putting a recovery .iso on a flashdrive and booting from that, and still, nothing. It will not boot from anything whatsoever, no matter what I put first, disable, enable, etc in the setup thing.

I have no idea what to do at this point, because I can't get into the computer for the life of me, and I can't lose the files I have on there. Not again. This computer was a gift from my grandparents, and not even three months later, I've somehow effed it up.

Please, if you could offer any advice or solutions to this, it'd be greatly appreciated. If there's any buttons I can press to manually start from the CD or flashdrive, that'd be helpful, too, considering it refuses to follow the boot sequence I've set up (CD/DVD > USB Flashdrive > Internal HDD... I previously only had CD/DVD on, and then I switched it to USB Flashdrive, and later Internal HDD, and neither one works).

I'm lost. Honestly. I thought that there was nothing I couldn't do with the internet at hand, but this has completely stumped me. So, yeah...that's the message I get when I boot up. I've practically disassembled my PC to see what's up...visually speaking nothing looks wrong, it's all clean, everything's plugged into the right place, so that shouldn't be the problem. I can't access safe mode, it just won't let me, nor can I reinstall XP (it says "system is analysing your hardware" and then the screen goes blank and nothing happens). I've done diagnostics five times and apparently nothing's wrong. I don't care what happens to my files, there's nothing on there which I'm desperate to save, I just don't want to have wasted all of my money. Any help? I'm sure I can give hardware information if necessary.
 

Answer:"A Disc Read Error has Occurred. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL to Restart"

You may have to Format your hrd drive and clear off the old installation of windows first.

You cant get to the area of installation that would allow you to do that. See if you can download from the hard drive manufacturer, who-ever that may be, thier hard disc maintenance tools. Such as Seatools for Seagate, or MaxBlast for Maxtor. Creating a bootable disc of which ever one youneed to use you should be able to partition and refomat the hard drive as these will boot with out attempting to boot from your hard drive. Also you can run a HDD test from the same disc telling you if you have a gone bad hard drive.

Ok, a while ago, my PC worked fine until one day I booted and it was extremely slow loading all startup programs. Eventually it froze up completely and I was forced to restart. Every time I rebooted it would restart itself whilst the loading screen for windows came up, or get through to the login screen but have mouse disabled, OR actually select my login but only ever load my desktop picture after hours and nothing more.

I tried to use my windows disk but to no avail. There was a file error. Anyway somehow through the cmd I got it to check the disks etc and it worked fine after a blue screen which checked files in 3 steps (I forget how I got this).

Then once again after a couple of weeks I am on my computer when it suddenly lags badly, grinds to a halt and everything freezes. I am shortly after forced to restart it. This time however just before the windows loading screen bit it says

"A disk read error occurred

Now once again I cannot run the windows disk due to the same error, (I will get the name if necessary.) Furthermore beforehand I was able to boot in safe mode (i.e press F8, select the boot device, then press F8 some more and then get the list of CMD, last known config, safe mode etc etc), whereas now, I get the error prior to this. As far as I can tell, all I can do is play with the BIOS on the computer, which I know a bit about but not enough to know a blatant error. Needless to say I have tried resetting to... Read more

Sounds like your Hard Drive might have died. Try making a Hard Drive diagnostic Boot Disc for your brand of HDD and try that. http://www.techsupportforum.com/f234...es-302602.html

"A disk read error occurred, press ctrl+alt+del to restart"That's the message I get every time I try to turn on my computer. Or, at least it's the one that happens every time I turn it on after it's been off for a while (ie. in the morning). It seems the only thing I can do is to restart it until Windows loads, which it always does eventually. It can take a couple of tries, or it can take 8. I just don't understand what it is. I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, as well as put in a new hard-drive, (Samsung SpinPoint F2 EG SATA2 1.5TB). The error has occurred ever since. On three separate occasions I've thought I might have fixed it, since after all three the next time it loaded on the first try (though that might just be because the next time I booted my computer was on the same day, after I had rebooted my computer to fix the very problem).The first time I figured it might just be a physical configuration issue. I unplugged my DVD drive and my old ATA hard-drive (which is completely empty at this point anyway), and rechecked the cables on my new 1.5TB and my old 500GB SATA (where my Windows 7 partition is). I've since plugged both of those back in. The second time I did some googling, and it seemed it might have to do with the BIOS. Now, I've never updated the BIOS in the two and a half years since I got a new mainboard (partly because I don't have a floppy drive anymore). I used MSI's in-windows BIOS flash s... Read more

Answer:"A disk read error occurred, press ctrl+alt+del to restart"

I think if you had a configuration error, it would be more consistent.Since your problem only occurs on startup when the computer has been cold and powered down for a while, it sounds more like a thermal issue.For example, a hairline crack on the motherboard might make contact after the MB has warmed up and the traces have expanded a little to bridge the gap.Similarly, such erratic behavior can come from poorly seated or dirty edge connectors on the memory or card edge connectors on expansion cards. Also from cable jacks not properly seated, or cables separating from their plugs.So sometimes you can get things running with some cleaning and reseating things.Others may have other ideas for you, but this gives you something to do while you wait...

Hello,
well the title pretty much says it all.
I had been getting BSODs always, but I knew how to 'control' them (since I newly installed 7, I just had to start my PC, and once Windows ran and I could login, I restarted it.. and everything worked fine.. no BSOD). However, this time, I just felt like giving it a try the first time (login in without the restart), and well, I shouldn't have.

I got a BSOD, which by then I thought was normal, but then when the PC restarted, at the black controllers-screen I get the message "A disk read error occurred - Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart".

This I couldn't avoid: if I restarted I got to the very same screen and so on; I've searched for help in other places (some mention changing the slave/master functions of the hard drive and so on.., but none work), so I come to you.

Please, I urgently need your help. Thank you in advance.
Chris

I have a problem that I was wondering whether anyone could help me with. : D

Here's the deal, I am a semi noob when it comes to computing in this sense and this is my situation:

My computer became seriously screwed yesterday and so I restarted it a couple of times by holding the power button - this then did something bad to fundamental parts of the computer. On boot up, my computer would hang at the POST screen just before detecting drives.

I read on the internet to unplug the CMOS battery and replace it. That worked, and the computer now recognizes that I have two 160GB HITACHI Deskstar Sata 2 hard drives, the computer also recognizes that they are in raid 0 configuration.

But when it comes down to booting from these HDDs it gives me the "A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart." error. It just tries to boot from CD, then if there are no CDs it tries the Hard disks and I get this error.

I also cannot boot from the XP install CD, it just says "Press any key to boot CD" and when I do it just gives me the disk read error again.

I have absolutely nothing on this computer so I don't have any data to lose, I can do whatever this end so even the most drastic things don't matter.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have to offer. : )

My system config is:
Motherboard : ABIT FATAL1TY AN9 32X nForce 590 SLI

This is kinda long and I've fixed it, but could use your input.

So after waking up, my parents informed me that the computer was shutting down randomly. I turned it on and "a disk error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart " appeared. It's a Sata hard drive so I checked the cables to make sure they were plugged in correctly and they were, and then I tried connecting it to another computer with that computers cables and that didn't work either.

My parents not wanting to buy one online, decided to just go to bestbuy and buy one there, since we already had the Windows 7 Disk at home. I formatted it, partitioned it, and installed Windows 7 Home Premium on it and everything worked. I decided to connect the Hard drive that didn't work while the computer was still on, and it immediately started downloading the drivers it needed and up popped all the hard drive. I'm going to start transferring all the important things like music,videos and games, and after, all I can see are the following 3 things;

after getting all the data we want off it, should I reinstall windows to see if my other computer will recognize it (Even though it couldn't before), format it and just use it as extra data (though since it already couldn't boot up, the ability to keep data on it may fail in a couple of days/weeks) or just put it away and not use it at all.

What would you guys reccomend I do?

Answer:Hard Drive, "a disk error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart "

First get the data you need off it.

Then go to the mfr and get their HD testing utility and run it.

If it were me I wouldnt trust it. I have been burned before.

You certainly could use it for storage of, say one set of backups, for the chances of losing your OS HD, and that backup at the same time are nil.

Hello
I have a Toshiba windows Xp professional 2001 Laptop

Before I got this error my computer was doing a shut down update. I forgot to plug the charger before I left to work and the screen said "please do not unplug or shut off computer" so I'm guessing my computer died before it could finish updating. I went home turned it on and got "a disk read error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart" restarted it and just keeps looping to that screen.

Spent hours searching the internet for a solution and nothing. So the only answer I could think of is factory reset it. Is there another way? Will it work? Please help

If you have a Windows XP CD you can boot off of the that and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter this will try to repair any problems.
If you don't have an XP CD, you can download the ISO image for the Recovery Console: DOWNLOAD: Windows Recovery Console Burn the image to CD using IMGBurn in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD in the troubled computer, and follow the above instructions.

I am having this exact same issue on my Lenovo E520. In the Advanced User Accounts - the box to check to "require users to press ctrl-alt-del" is greyed out. In the Local Security Policy I have disabled the Interactive Login. With these changes made the computer will require the Ctrl-Alt-Del during the first reboot but will revert to the factory settings upon subsequential reboots. I believe it is caused by the fingerprint scanner software or drivers but the uninstall option is not available in the Delete Programs utility. Also I am leary on removing these as I don't want to cause conflicts with the other Lenovo factory installed software. Any suggestions?

I recently built a new PC, however I'm having a problem installing Windows XP onto my SATA drive. It works perfectly if I use an IDE, but this is what happens with SATA:
-Goes to the setup screen and puts on the necessary files.
-Asks me to format.
-Starts the 15 second restart timer, then restarts.
-I change the boot order to HDD first.
-It tells me "A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart" when it's supposed to continue with the installation.

I've tried the drivers that came with the motherboard and no-go. I've also tried with no drivers and it still gives me this error. One time, I believe it said something about "Boot", but it flashed on the screen too fast and restarted to see what it said.

EDIT: If I made a direct copy from an IDE drive onto this SATA one, is there a chance that might help? If there's a driver issue, it would have all the drivers needed on the Hard-Drive wouldn't it?

Wow,

So I did some work on this machine not too long ago. It had basically lost one hard drive in a raid 0 setup during a power surge, and this poor fellow lost all his data. I tried to talk him into upgrading to a third drive for future situations like this, but now not even two weeks later, when he boots, we get to a screen that says

a disk read error occurred
press ctrl alt del to restart

A browse through these wonderful forums is telling me that his hard drive, or at least the partition on 1 of the drives is toast, which would be disastrous at this point. So I am truly hoping for another solution. Yes the machine is running Raid 0. When I boot the machine I get to the intel boot agent screen with the option to enter the setup menu (this is not the bios, just a boot agent something or other where you can tell the machine to boot according to the bios ect) Following that, the screen goes blank, the super micro graphic screen comes up just briefly and then bam, this good old message appears, so there does not even appear to be a way to get into the bios.

I am desreate for advice... If I must resinstall windows, then so be it, but we are talking thousands of dollars worth of data, that would be lost. Please please help!
 

Answer:Raid 0, Boot prob, "A disk read error occurred" press ctrl alt del to restart

My brother game me a lenova computer. Vista operating system, and some free antivirus software.

I got a message from Security Essentials that I didn't like, and since I assumed it was just an antivirus program, I deleted it and installed Panda.

Then I got a message saying Activate Windows. It would go away after a few seconds, so I never clicked on it. Besides, Windows was working just fine.

Just put the computer to sleep, tried to wake it up, it wouldn't wake up.

Did a hard restart.

Now, the screen comes up with the message, To interupt normal post, press enter. I press enter, nothing happens.

The little green light that should flicker to indicate hard drive is churning away does not flicker.

I put in the System Restore disk, and hit F12, and now it gives me the "To interrupt normal ost, press enter.
Below that, the Entering boot menu

Finally after about 5 minutes the boot menu came up and I was able to boot it using the system recovery disk.

I'm used to a Mac reboot where it will just start up and show me the hard drive etc.

But what this boot disc wants to do is reinstall Windows entirely, which I don't want to do.

Is that my only option?

Thanks for any help.

I have a Dell GX260 low body and a regular GX260 desktop system, when they boot up, they will display "press F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup". I know this means that it is not reconizing in one form or another the HD. But, what I do not understand, the HD is reconized in BIOS. I have even installed a new HD with the same situation. At other times, system will boot into XP Pro and work fine until a restart, then it goes back to the F1 or F2 thing. We build several computers each week installing the OS XP Pro. We have taken all the parts out of the computers and reseated them. We have even went as far as to switch some parts out of another identical pc. I have even had a Dell Dimension E310 do the same thing. When we contacted Dell, they said it is the MB. What was even stranger was the one that had been sitting the longest, I tossed the original HD back into to see if I could check the name of the computer, it booted into Windows perfectly. I do not see how the motherboard could work now and not later and then start working again.

This is starting to be a really big issue and taking way to much of our time. If anyone can shed any light on this, I would appreciate it.

Answer:PC comes up "press F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup"

It is in fact the motherboard. I have had this happen many times with the same model you are talking about. It is a problem with the IDE controller on the motherboard. So thats why you need to replace the motherboard.

I am not sure if a PCI IDE controller would work if you cant replace the motherboard but it might be worth a shot. I always just replace the motherboard.

I have set Cd-rom as 1st for boot sequence then hard drive I have no floppy drive and the bios has been configured to know that.

I am not sure if this means anything but in the bios the IDE Channel 0 Master says none and when I try to turn on auto detection it wont detect a hard drive.

The HDD is fully connected and has not been touched since I installed it a month ago.

Ok first off I want to say I've searched and searched and searched to no avail in trying to find a solution to this I've come to the conclusion it's software and not hardware based. Let me start from the top.

I've had an older computer (HP Pavilion a408x) out of commission for a while due to a 'sploded psu. I finally get around to ordering one, install it and everything is good. I bring it back to my office and hook it up to the internet and as expected there's updates. So I up date it and after the updates are installed the computer restarts automatically (weird yes) and as it's coming back on it detects errors and runs CHKDSK. So I let it run and it gets to part 2 of 3. At this point in time my partner is really needing to print sometime and all computers print through this computer. So after about 45 minutes CHKDSK is still on part 2 at only 15%. So I'm like "screw it" and manually shut down and restart. It's at this point I get a "primary master hard disk failure" at the boot screen. Letting start up continue I get a "Stop : c000021 unknown hard error \systemroot \system 32 \ntdll.dll" At this point I realize something is delectably wrong.

Found this thread, which didn't help much. At some point the c000021 error stops and I start getting "disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter" and I found this thread, which didn't help much either. I have also been searching other sites as well.

I still keep getting "Disk boot error, insert system disk and press enter", and when it does boot, it freezes all the time and every time I click the start button, it basically crashed and is messed up.

Tried new SATA cable and ports. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Windows 7 freezing, "Disk boot error, insert system disk and press enter"

BIOS settings or Motherboard issues?

Have you checked with the manufacturer website for the Motherboard that you have the Windows 7 drivers?

Is your Windows 7 DVD a retail copy...or the pre release BETA....or dodgy(in which case problems might lie there)

Hello,
I just built this new computer (everything new) but when I start it up it gives me this message, and I cannot open my disc (probably not recognised?). Please help resolve this.
Btw. no operation system installed or so.

my computer:
CPU: intel i7 920
Motherboard: gigabyte GA-ex58-ud5
Sata-II hdd
+ cd writer is SATA as well

Could it be that I need to update my bios somehow? I highly doubt it's the hardware as it's all new

I came to work this morning to find a bit of virus / spyware / malware on my work PC (Win2000 was IE5, now IE6).
I've spruced the system up and got rid of all nasties, but am left with an irritating problem.

In Tools > Internet Options > Advanced, under Multimedia, the "Show Pictures" and "Show Videos" checkboxes were unchecked.
I re-checked them, but when I rebooted and re-opened IE, they had unchecked themselves again, leaving webpages with no images.

I checked the registry entries for "Display Inline Images" and "Display Inline Videos" and the Default values were set to Yes, but the current values were set to No.

Now, as it's a work PC, I don't have access to the IE options > Advanced tab under my own login, I have to login as Admin to get to that. However, the act of logging off the admin account and back onto my own also resets the values to No. I think that if you just close all browser windows and then open a new one it sometimes reverts to unchecked too, though not all the time.

I have amended my own rights temporarily to give me access to regedit, so I can go in and change the values, but I don't want to have to do this every time I need access to the internet (like just now when I logged in to TSG).

So, do you think it is residual malware stuff that several different virus and spyware checkers failed to find (including Trend Micro OfficeScan Client, Spybot, Kappersky, XScan and a couple of oth... Read more

Answer:"Show pictures" checkbox unchecks itself...

The registry entries are in:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Internet Explorer > Main

The keys are "Display Inline Images" and "Display Inline Videos".

If I'm connected to the internet, the "Data" values periodically reset themselves to "No". It can happen whenever there's browser activity such as going to File > New Window, clicking the Back and Forward buttons, opening a new browser window from the IE icon on the desktop etc.

If I leave regedit open, the Data values onscreen appear to remain "yes" (I guess because it doesn't self-refresh). However, when I click right-click and select Modify, they are set to "no" - if I change these, I then need to open a new browser window (rather than just refresh the current one) in order to get the images to display again.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Well, the message I get it pronounced above in the title. I know a little bit about computers, but I don't know how to get into DOS, BIOS, etc when I don't have a start menu to do so. I read some other threads and they seemed to have useful information, but I would need further explanation. Also - I hooked my HD into another computer to see if it would work, it did, booted up, everything. Also, when I went into Boot Setup or something - blue screen and the only thing I could do when hooked into my computer - it doesn't show any options for booting - it says select from the list - but how do I do that when there's nothing in the list? Oh please do help me as this computer is my main source for writing.

Answer:Problem: "Disk Boot Failurs, Insert System Disk and Press Enter"

If you're running a HP what it's asking for is your System Restore Disk. Meaning the HP OS that came with your system. Finding Bios in HP are generally simultaneously with Start button on casing F1 or F11. If neither key works then try F2 and or the Delete button. Making sure each key is pushed as you boot up.
Once your in Bios use the arrow keys to scroll up and down your bios - the enter key once on the various listing in menu until you find your boot sequence listings. In general plus and minus are used to change the sequence. CDrom HD and floppy is the correct setting. But with your Restore Disk from HP it might not even require all that.
Pop it is and Boot up and see if it works. Then try the Bios sequence if you can get there, the F10 to save and enter making sure your CD with the OS is in your CDRom when you do.
Let us know as things go...Jazz
Sounds like you've either lost your OS or you've lost your HD.

Hello everyone, been lurking for a while, but first time posting because I could use some help. I tried looking through other threads, but nothing seemed to help. I was downloading a game off of Steam, and my family computer just crashed. It apparently restarted itself, and presented that disk boot error message. Tried restarting again using ctrl+alt+del, and same situation occurs. I go into the BIOS screen, and try to use the auto detect to identify the drive, but it is not identified. All of the cables are working correctly, as I plugged a different drive into them and that drive booted fine. Btw, the hard drive is a western digital 5000AAKS.

I'm running an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3800+, 2412 MHz, 2 gb of ram, Windows Vista Home Basic. Its a Compaq SR5110NX. I'm not overclocking it or anything, just downloading a game, and then this happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I'm currently running on a m2n32-SLI Deluxe WIFI edition with a 320GB maxtor harddrive. Previously, I had my set up like this: One SATA from maxtor to the mobo, one IDE cable with my cd drive, as master, and my old HD(30 GB w/ my documents) as slave. It was running fine with Vista on the maxtor. However, I wanted to remove the old HD and place a new CD-drive in. I did so, and I received the above error message.

I took out the the new CD-drive and switched back to my old connection, and it worked great.

Then, I had the 320 GB connected, and the old cd-drive to the IDE. I get the error message. I've tried every single possible combination of jumper settings and replaced the IDE cables.

What do I need to do to get this to work, before I throw my computer out the window?
 

Answer:"Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk And Press Enter"

Windows has detected the change as an attempt at piracy. You will now have to reinstall Windows in repair mode, then talk to Microsoft over the phone to get it re-established.
This is common with OEM versions of Windows. Windows will detect any change in the hardware, other than memory, as a possible attempt to bypass the Windows Install parameters... it thinks the computer has been changed.
You might want to do a thorough search of the www.microsoft.com knowlege base.

Hi,

My cousin recently made me a computer and he sent it all the way here from the United States. I was eager to try it out and hooked it up to my monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc. I did not plug in any additional USB devices.

When I boot up the computer it gives me "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".

I couldn't get past this (I don't have the Windows XP disk), and so I restarted the computer and pressed 'Del' to get into the (I think it's called BIOS menu? Not sure, the blue screen thing), I looked at the boot up priorities and moved Hard Disk to one priority level above Disk boot, however this made no difference.

I am good with the computers but not when it comes to hardware and things like this. So PLEASE if you use a term I may be unfamiliar with please explain what it is. I am very frustrated and disappointed that this does not work.

Thank you very much,

Answer:"Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter"

Welcome to TSG!!

I'm guessing that, perhaps, a cable has come loose during shipping. Open the computer's case and look around. Usually the hard drive is mounted toward the front of the system. It's a device about 3.5" wide by 5" long and about an inch thick. There should be two cables plugged into the back end, one of which comes from the power supply, the other should be plugged into the motherboard.

I don't use Outlook so I am unable to figure this one out.

My son uses Outlook 2010 and is having to go to some extra steps every time he wants to send a mail. Here's what is happening:
He composes or replies to a mail and clicks "Send".
It goes to Out Box and is not sent.
It sits in the outbox indefinitely, even for days as other mail is collected automatically every two minutes. He says he has Outlook 2010 configured to send on receive/check; but, it does not send.
In order to send that mail, he must open the Out Box and then open that mail (that is just sitting there unsent) and click "Send" again and then and only then does it get sent -- from Out Box.
This happens with all mail he sends.

Suggestions?

Does anyone know if its possible to autofill the "from field" as a rule, when your in "another users /delegates" mailbox, so you dont have to add their address in the "from field"? (so it will autopopulate with their email address (and show "on behalf of")?
I hope this was clear.

thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: outlook 2007 "from field" 'on behalf of" issue

No ... its not possible if the user has more than one delegate (that has added them with the applicable rule). from that point on, they will have to choose which person they want to add to "sent" on behalf of field.

However, If they have just one (one only) user who has added them with that permission (to send on behalf of), it will auto-populate with that user.

So, It does not matter even if they are "in" a specific users mailbox (and expect the "on behalf of" to auto fill with that users name). If they have more than one delegate that has added them with that permission, they will still have to choose which user the message will sent "on behalf of"

i figured this out by trail and error etc

How do I stop pop-uo "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207. Running Office 2007 on Win7 x 64 with MSE for anti-virus.

I've three email accounts: yahoo, gmail, and the never used ISP's email all POP3 ... My Smartphone running Android also checks for gmail and yahoo mail.

Outlook is set for send/receive every 10 minutes. The oh so WAY too familiar pop-up box "Enter Network Password" appears intermittently and seems to be related to the Yahoo account's download/receiving process. I can close the pop-up, hit F9 to retry sending and receiving, and on all accounts all is well...for a while.

Then, it happens again....for a few days now. I increased send/receive to 11 minutes...no love.

Of course, I am interested in stopping this. It's happened before. I suspect 'changes' at Yahoo, with no more foundation for that suspicion than I have that Santa is on my roof ....still, I don't want to format C: and re-install everything only to discover that another day or two of doing nothing would have yielded the invisible fix and gotten me past all this.

Guys,

I am a little confused with regard to some of the mail options in Outlook Express. (I have version 6) What is the difference between the "Drafts" and "Outbox" folders?

Further how does the "Send Later" option work from the file menu? I always thought that "Send Later" was the same as using "Drafts" but what happend was that I was doing an e-mail, went to Drafts, or clicked on "Send Later" or Outbox and then after I clicked on "Send" doing a regular send, I checked my Sent folder and about 3 copies of the same message were delivered to the same person! (I only sent one message-not 3!)

What is the deal with the "Outbox" folder? Apparently that is not like the Drafts folder....correct?

What's the difference between doing a Save, Save As, and Send Later with regard to OE functions? If I want to save a message that isn't done yet, which of these 3 options should I use? (I.e, I want the message to go to the Drafts folder for example and stay there until I TELL OE to send it.) I think whatever I did above was that I modified my message and then click on where it just automatically sent next time I opened the message. A review of these features would be helpful!

Just for the record, I also use Yahoo Mail and find that so much easier!

Jack
 

Answer:Please Review OE "Send", "Drafts", and "Outbox" Options

Jack
To save an E-Mail to your Drafts folder for work on later then you use the File\Save option.
If you wish to save the E-Mail in another format such as .EML or .TXT or .HTM then you use the Save as function. You will also be required to specify a folder to save in or use its "My Documents" default.
Send later function if only one e-mail account exists will place the e-mail in the outbox and send it the next time you click on the send receive button. If you have multiple accounts then you can specify which account to send it from.

Has this latest failure happened ever since you reconverted to Basic disk, or just since trying to create a Win8 partition? How did you attempt this exactly? Did you then proceed to install Win8 to the partition as you should to have it auto-configure a Dual Boot? If not do that now.

I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Now whenever I boot up I get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.

Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. (Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were before set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important.)

I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help.

Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option?

I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.
