  1. Hi, my dads computer just stopped working on him, when he turn the PC on you get a black screen and it says "Boot Disk Failure, Please insert Boot Disk and press enter" The only problem is I don't have a boot disk so that I can do this. So if anyone has any Ideas please leave a comment.

    Do you have your OS CD? Complete the guide here, or run a repair installation and your PC should be good to go.
