You have either a corrupt operating system of a bad hard drive, try F8 when booting up and choose last known good configuration and press enter, if it boots then your off if not turn off F8 again and choose safe mode, if it boots into windows do a system restore in accesories to an earlier date.

If still not booting you will need a windows cd to repair the system, and if it cannot find the drive you then know it's a hard drive problem.

This will be either an operating system glitch of a failed hard drive. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

It does not start and shows E9 error


Dear Sir:
I hope you are o.k

I will help you:
Please follow this step:
Error 09 - Lower PCA Memory Test Errors
Description
Error 09 checks lower PCA memory locations during the power up test sequence. If a fault is
found during the power up test sequence, error 09 will be displayed. This error code is only used
on products utilizing the dual microprocessor system.
Possible Causes
1. This error message almost always indicates a lower PCA problem when it is consistently
displayed. Failures causing this error message to be displayed are rare.
Possible Remedies
1. If the error message is consistently displayed when the unit is powered up, the lower PCA
should be replaced. It is possible to see this error message displayed intermittently due to
external causes. If the units A.C. input significantly dips during the power up test sequence
the test could fail resulting in this message being displayed. Treadmills operating on
non-dedicated A.C. circuits may see this message displayed on an intermittent basis.

Thank you in advance, sincerely. Blessing.

There is no bios setting comes and also no operating system found message come and also format not star


Every computer needs a BIOS and an Operating System. The key combination to get to the BIOS is displayed on the screen for a couple of seconds at system startup. If you fail to press those keys the computer will try to start any existing OS. If no OS is found then you MUST install one to use your computer.

Computer problem, help.


This generally indicates a hard drive crash/failure, in which the hard drive will need to be replaced. Rare, but occasionally you will get this error from an operating system glitch. Before you run out and buy a new hard drive, try reloading the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive is shot.

Printer hangs on Power up - displays XEROX in LCD Window


Do any of the fans operate ? Is there any aperance of the power switching on?
Look in the back of the printer and see if you notice any leds on in the machine.
If there is no presence of any power, the electronics module has most likely failed.
