    What is the exact message your getting on your screen.

    Have you left anything like a floppy disk or memory stick plugged in? it may be trying to boot from that :thumbsup:

    Boot the master hard drive, works for me.

    boot failure reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device press any key when ready

    Does the PC recognize your hard drive in the BIOS ?

    Press ctrl+alt+delete twice, this sometimes occurs because of a fault in windows 95-2000. Its a failure to load the correct memory drivers, the only solution is fix that is no longer available from Microsoft. Or you could do a complete re-install

    On most PC's you hold down the DEL key when the pc boots up. It will take you to the BIOS.

    yes I have and I have tried them. its a nec

    If you don't know how to go into the Bios then i wouldn't go any further. Try and get hold of someone that knows about PC's or you could make it worse and lose everything.

    In most cases when i get a PC to fix it's usually something basic but has been made worse by the user trying to fix it themselves.

    Don't take it to PC World either as they will charge you a fortune to just re-install windows.

    Where are you located ? If your really stuck perhaps a kind forum member would help if they live nearby ! ;-)

    It should look something like this.

    Are there any hard drives in the list when you open the Standard cmos Features ?
