I have a laptop too and I have tried booting the CD in it, same thing. The setup does not start, What should I do. You can ask me anything else you want. The problem can when the computer did not start i.e. that problem was in the hardware then, when it got repaired, the windows got corrupted. I want to know how I can start the formatting setup through my CD now and another thing is while booting there is no line press any key to boot from cd/dvd. there is just a blinking '_' and when I press something the windows boot manager opens. there is the OS windows 7 there which if operated restarts and I want to format my computer. it doesn't work in safe mode either.
If your answer work I will surely give you the best answer, and I used image burner software to put the .iso file to my DVD. Please help. :'(
So should I burn the .iso file or should I open the .iso file and then burn it?

Now to your problem(s).
We can at first forget Windows 7.
You need to be able to boot up your into your bios.
Helping you would be much easier if we knew something about your system.
If when you power on your computer, and immediately start tapping the F2 key, do you get to the bios screen? If no, then do you hear beeps?
Since you can't use the computer yet, then just fill out your system specs to best of your ability. Update your SevenForums System Specs User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
