my computer that has almost twice as much ram and twice as good of a processor is unfortunatly not working at the moment.you see when i turn it on it automatically tries to boot from a disk....though there's nothing in the disk drives and when i put a windows home edition disk in it it did'nt work either.

now i know you all are prob busy but if you read this and have any ideas on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated...please :whistling:

thank you

There are not enough details. Have you got windows installed on c: partition? was it working properly until you got this problem? what message do you get when bootup fails.

In the meantime enter BIOS (usually by tapping del or f2 repeatedly after satartup) find where the boot sequence is and make your HD the first boot device. save and restart. What happens now?
