I've waited a couple hours before turning it on, but every time I turn it on it takes me straight to the bios screen or disk error read occurred screenPower off the computer. Wait a few minutes, then power back on and tell us what you are seeing. If you are unsure, please attach a picture.
I've tried that, there's is no cd/dvd tray, I took the laptop apart checked the connections. I did buy it used and saw that the hard drive wasn't the one that came with it and the guy who sold it to me told me he replaced itIn the BIOS, choose "Optimized Defaults" F9. This will restore the BIOS settings back to default. Save and Exit. The PC should reboot.
The default boot order, typically puts the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device...ensure there is no disc in the drive.
What can I do? I've taken it apart disconnected the hardware and tried booting it up I've disconnected everything and reconnected it, thank you for helping so far I appreciate itBooting directly into the BIOS could be the BIOS battery or a hardware fault.
The "Disk Read Error" would likely be a hardware fault or the HDD is faulty/not connected properly.
Neither of those should have caused the initial problem, which could have been a simple software glitch or a sign of an underlying hardware fault.
