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.

How to operate ibm setup utility


Hello Russell shy,

This new form of recovery allows the user to restore the preloaded operating system and software on the machine back to the original out of factory condition. Prior to performing a software recovery, Lenovorecommends returning your system to it's original factory configuration by removing all hardware that has been added to your system afterwards
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:

To Start the Product Recovery program, press F11

This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.

Operating system not found


there is problem with your hard disk. your hard disk wire may be loose. try to remove and refix all sata wires of your hard disk. "operating system not found" message may be coming because you may have not installed any os (windows, linux or mac) in your notebook. try to install operating to system to fix this. there may also be proble with your hard disk, your hard disk may be dead. if your notebook is showing message "operating system not found" without any reason then you may have put your notebook in high magnetic field area. due to high magnetic field, sometimes hard disk's are formatted automatically.

When I see this message, there are two very common reasons for it. The first being that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. The second being, the hard drive has become loose and dislodged from its mounting interface.

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.

Vaio error message


This generally indicates a hard drive failure, but occasionally it's just an operating system glitch. 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 fresh operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

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.

Ze5185 operating system not found


Could be a sign that hard drive is failing or a problem with Windows. Do you hear any strange noises, clicks?

Try re-installing Windows and see if that helps.

Thanks!
