Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

More info please

\015 Hi again Tat4u,......thanks again for replying!!...just a bit confused now though as i've read a couple of websites solutions on making USB mem sticks bootable!!..after you've made them bootable you still have to get into the bios to change some settings before they can be used,and as i cannot get that far then this option is a no starter(i think)!?......So i will have to try the cd method.......will get hold of a cd first and then install Nero and then give it a go!!( not sure though how the notebook will read the cd,again because the notebook only powers up and doesn't go as far as BIOS or windows!?).......anyway i can only try this and if no luck then i'll have to think about 'plan B' :-) ......cheers!\015

\015\012click start..
\015\012thats ur usb bootable ...before you add any files you can try to see if it works cos sometimes you dont have to access bios it finds auto...worth a try seeing as the whole proccess of downloading installing and making usb bootable takes about 10 to 15 min...
\015\012if bios recognises device pc will start and you will see c:/ promt
\015\012of course this isnt a c:/prompt it just fools the bios .
\015\012if at first you see non system disk gtry press ctrl+alt+del and let start again (sometimes have to do this,bit like kickstart)
\015\012if you see the same error then obviosly bios needs to be told but if its recognised then add your files to the usb stick and away you go.
