Hello,
I am running windows xp
Computer: SR1520AN
RE: DISK BOOT FAILURE.INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

Is there any way you could go through this step by step.
I know that you press F1
I have windows XP


I just don't know what to hit next.
Advanced tab and or Boot?

I also don't know what it should read?

NAME: HP Compaq Presario SR1520
MEMORY: 512MB PC3200 DDR
HARD DRIVE: 80GB - 7200 RPM Serail ATA
GRAHPICS: Intergrated ATI Radeon Xpress 200 (128MB) Shared Video memory
OPTICAL STORAGE: Double layer (8.5GB) 16xDVD-ROM

I get:
IDE Channel 1 Master : None
IDE Channel 1 Slave: None
IDE Channel 2 Master : Lite-ON DVDRM SHOW-1633S BPSA
IDE Channel 2 Slave : None

IDE Channel 3 Master: None
IDE Channel 4 Master None

If anyone can walk me through this step by step I would appreciate it.

I do not have a disk? This was already pre loaded when I brought it and have since lost it (back up). I only have the second CD, not the first back up.

also there are no beeps. There was no window prompt advising of error. I moved computer from one room to another. Started having problems.

I don't know which cable goes where if one has dislodged itself or I put the cable in the wrong place.
