Try booting from the CD and from the recovery options ask it to do a startup repair.

If it is just a black screen and you cannot do anything (and the above fails), if you don't have anything important in tha PC I suggest a full reinstall. This is the tutorial to do it right.
If you want to save your data and installed programs (but lose most Windows settings), try a repair install. Follow this tutorial.

Make sure that you are booting from the installation CD by going into Bios options (also called Setup in the first lines of text you see when powering on the PC, should tell you the key/button to press to get into BIOS/Setup), then go into boot options panel and make sure that the CD/DVD reader is 1st, and the hard drive is 2nd.

I went in BIOS, made the options and after that I restarted my pc. Doesen't matter what I do after the first screen the PC goes in some sort :" Failed to recover" where I have the options stated above. Doesen't matter what I choose the PC still boots from safe mode with networking and after that my screen is total black.

I can't click anything and see anything. After the drivers load I'm in a total black. I also restarted the BIOS by getting the batery out and get it back on after 2 mins, so the problem is not the BIOS. I don't know why but the pc is not booting from CD even though I made the first option in BIOS. That "Failed to recover" screen is appearing and after that it goes in safe mode with networking w/e I choose.

remove HDD power (the bigger connector with 4 colorful cables or if that is a laptop fully remove the hard drive), boot the PC with the CD, mount that connector (or the hard drive) again when it asks you if you want to install or repair your PC.

The darn thing cannot boot from a drive that does not have power.

I did that and now after the first screen a screen wich says : Select a proper boot device

Insert boot media in selected boot device and pres any key.


Ok so I injected the DVD , pressed any keys and nothing happens. I still get the same message over and over again.

In the tutorial about the full reinstall you find links to official Windows 7 iso files you can download and burn to DVD or place on a USB thumbdrive (chiavetta USB)

Here is a prime example where I should of asked for marco1 specs right off the bat. Now we have no idea what we are working with.
If I'm understanding things correctly marco1 system can't read the CD/DVD player or the hard drive.
I'm reading this correctly?

It reads both. I just can't boot from the DVD or anything else.


I'm using an OS Windows 7 x74 with Asus motherboard afaik.

Here is the problem from the start.

Main problem: I wanted to run the pc in safe mode so I did the change in msconfig. Now everytime I start my pc it goes in safe mode with networking and after that the screen becomes black. ( resolution not supported)

What I tried to do: - I got off the batery and added it back in after 3 min ( BIOS restart) - Not worked.

- I pulled out the HDD jumper and I turned it off. After the first screen another screen appeared :"Select a proper boot device

Insert boot media in selected boot device and pres any key. "

I injected the DVD and pressed any key. The same screen appeared and nothing happened. It's not from the DVD. I tested it on nother pc. What else I can do ?

To boot from a DVD you need to place the DVD in the reader, and then power off the PC, then power on again.
The DVD must be already inside the reader when the PC powers up or it won't boot from it.
