If this is the first time you?ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives of hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. restart your computer.

its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

How to solve this problem """operating system not

Hi sirajshah_mu,

This error message will appear if the Computer is not detecting the internal Hard Disk Drive or when the Operating System is missing.

First, please try resetting the BIOS to the default values to check if that resolves the issue. To reset the BIOS to the default values, restart the Computer, press and hold the F2 Key to access the BIOS, then, please press the F9 to load the default values and F10 to save and exit. After that, please try restarting the Computer to check if that work.

If the issue still persists, please check if the Hard Drive is listed in the BIOS main window. Also, please try disconnecting all the external Devices connected to the Computer.

If the issue is not resolved after performing the above steps, you may need to re-install the Operating System in the Computer using the Recovery Partition. It is required to have the exact model # of the Computer to provide the necessary information on Recovery. If the issue still persits, please let me know the results of the above steps and the exact model # to assist you further.

settings saved on other computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network now

This error message usually occurs in windows vista & win7 if the settings saved on the computer doesnt matches with the settings in the router...
You can get rid of this message by deleting the list of preferred networks from your computer...
To delete the preferred networks, follow the method given below...
Open control panel > open Network & Internet(double click) > open Network & Sharing center(double click)
On the far hand side left you will have an option called "Manage wireless networks" If you click that, you will see the list of preferred networks that are already saved in your computer... Now select your network, make a right click and select "Remove network" Select "ok" for all the warnings...
Thats it..! you are done..! Now search for the list of available wireless networks in range, you must be able to see your network name without any error mesages... Select your network and click connect, it will ask for the network key(if you have setup one)... Enter the key and get connected...! You must be able to go online now..!
