when try to boot up it says operating system not found Thanks


This error comes when your harddrive is not detected properly or some os system files are missing.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then make sure your harddrive is recognized in bios if not then make sure SATA is disable then save settings .Then check.
If still same then you need windows disk or recovery disk to repair your windows missing files.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have misplaced the recovery CD for Sharp Actius RD3D PC Notebook and I need to re-install the Operating System, so I requires Drivers for its hardware components, Also if possible an another official recovery CD from sharp..?


You do not need the CD to recover this laptop.

From the User Manual:

1. Turn on your computer. When the message <F2> to enter System Configuration
Utility appears on the bottom left of the screen, press F2. Then, the Setup Utility
will open.
2. In the Exit menu, select Load Setup Defaults; then, press Enter twice.
3. In the Exit menu, confirm Exit Saving Changes is highlighted and press Enter
twice.
4. The system will restart. When the message Press F10 to Recover appears on the
screen, press F10.
5. Read the message on the screen, and select the way to recover your system; then,
press Enter. If you selected Formats hard disk and creates new partition, go to
the next step. Otherwise, go to Step 10.
6. Select the volume of C: drive and press Enter.
7. Read the message and select Continue; then, press Enter. The formatting and reinstallation
will start.
Although the pointer may be shown on the screen, never touch the
keyboard or the mouse during recovery except when the message prompts
you to. If you touch them, the re-installation will be canceled.
8. When the re-installation process is completed, the system will restart
automatically.
9. Set up Windows XP by following the on-screen instructions. When you complete
the Windows setup, make sure to set date and time.

Problem with keys used to enter the cmos


For Toshiba notebook PCs manufactured since the introduction of Windows XP, one or more of the following methods will be effective:
  • Toshiba Hardware utility method: Run the Toshiba Hardware utility from the Toshiba Console. It may also accessible (as 'HWSetup') from the Windows Control Panel. Changes to some of the settings will require re-starting the computer. This method is the only way to access the BIOS settings on some notebook PCs (Satellite 5000 series, for example). (For these machines, pressing and holding the F12 key immediately after powering-on the notebook will allow you to alter the notebook's boot priority.)

    If the Toshiba Hardware utility is not present, try the F2 key method and the Esc key method (see below).
  • F2 key method: Turn the computer on. If you see an invitation to press the F2 key to enter Setup, do so. The Setup screen will appear.

  • Esc key method: Turn the computer on. If you do not see a prompt to press the F2 key, then immediately press and hold the Esc key for three seconds, and then release it. When prompted to, press the F1 key. The Setup screen will appear.
