Having problems with your HP Pavilion 753n (P9852AR#ABA) PC Desktop ?

On my HP Pavilion I set the BIOS to change the boot order from the CD drive first. Then I intalled Fedora 9 and when I tried to reboot the machine will not boot. I have tried booting with the Win XP cd in the drive and with the Fedora DVD in the DVD drive. I have diconnected the power from the drive and tried booting from each. I get the same result: power comes on but no boot activity. The lights on the keyboard blink, the drives make a little noise and then nothing.


Answers :

Try resetting all the connections and also disconnect the power cable from the back of the computer and hold down the button for 10 seconds and start the system that should work
