    'Disk Boot Fialure, Please Insert Systen Disk and Press Enter'

    That's the message I get when I boot up my friends Mom's computer.

    I've messed with the BIOS Boot Device Priority as well as searched around the internet...

    Can someone lend some help? [​IMG]

    It means the BIOS can not find the C: Drive/HDD with the operating system on which could be because the HDD is Dead or the Power or IDE/SATA cable has come out inside the PC

    Don't mess with the Boot Priority! Set it to the First Hard Drive...

    If it's still showing the System Disc Error, you pootched the Hard Drive, and will have to run a Windows/Linux install disc to put the OS back on. Hope your friends mom backed up her fiels!
