i recently replace my old 120 gb sata hdd in my pre built compucon pc with a 750gb seagate sata hdd. i installed windows xp home edition when it finished installing it rebooted and restarted throught the installation. when i tried to boot the pc with out the windows xp disc it came up with boot from cd.
thankyou in advance
Restart pc or power it on, tap a key printed on screen for bios/setup, go to Integrated Pripherals, look for Serial ATA Mode, change it to IDE. If you can't find it, just load default from main menu, save & exit.
i don't know muh about computers but i think my problem is similar to the 1 above.
I start my computer up and a black screen appears saying that 'windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
Then options are given to start windows normally such as:
safe mode with networking and several more.
i've tried all of them none of them seem to get the computer working.
