Boot Disk Failure - Page 3

post #21 of 53
Hmm...Trying running a check disk on the slave and set it to repair anything bad it finds. Also, if you can get the recovery console to open, you can use that to try to fix the MBR...

Yeah, but that doesn't explain why his computer was trying to go there before the CD-Rom when he set the CD-Rom as the first priority for start up in the BIOS.

How do i get the recovery console to open?
post #26 of 53
That's the thing, usually from boot up with the Microsoft CD-Rom.

EDIT: Actually, if you want you can try to copy your brothers copy of NTLDR & NTDETECT.COM from his computer and stick it in your computer in the appropriate place...The computer needs those files...If your copies are bad, then that may help...

EDIT: lol, I guess it would help if you knew where to find them. They should both be located @ the root of the drive as hidden files. (IE - C:\\)

Thanks for all the help everybody. I found out that I did have two bad boot disks. I honestly thought they worked but i guess not. Now i am having the problem of not being able to connect to the internet. I have the motherboard drivers installed and I also tried a different ethernet port that is not onboard. Sometimes it comes up with an error saying something to the effect of "Windows system error. IP Conflict. there is an ip address conflict with another system on the network" or something like that. I was reading some other forums and it seems like this is mainly a problem with wireless networks, but my computer is wired

If you can hold on for a moment, I'm busy, but I work with internet connections.

EDIT: Are you running Vista or XP then? (Usually it's an easy fix, I just need to know what OS you're running)

EDIT: If you're running under XP-

Click on Start and go to the Control Panel.
If you have a blue background - click on switch to classic view at the top left corner to make it white.

If you have a white background (or just made it white), open Network Connections.

Right click your local area connection, and click repair. Let me know if this doesn't work. There's other ways.

post #30 of 53
go into ur router/hub and set it manually
goto start/run then type cmd then enter
a command prompt will come up and type ipconfig
look for default gateway take that number (192.XXX.XXX.XXX or something silimar) and put it in ur adress bar for ie/netscape/what ever browser u use
u will get a prompt to put in a user name and password put it in ( if it has not been changed it will be either admin or administrator and pass should be blank
and find the spot to set ur ip manually
hope this helps
