Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


Do you have a disc in one of the drives? DVD, CD? Remove the disc and try to boot again. I haven't seen an error code like this since early Windows. If this doesn't work contact Compaq customer service.

When l switch on my 2710 it has a black screen and says non system disc or disc error


Either the hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced, or the operating system has corrupted and simply needs to be re-installed. HP's usually have a DFS test in the BIOS menu to see if your hard drive is faulty.

It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot.
Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS
Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables
If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.

My sony viao pcgn505a is very slow when i open it. It has also a samok virus and very slow internet connection. Please help how to reformat it and where to get drivers for it. Thanks.


I would suggest try avoiding formatting. Because if you do that, then the next problem you will face is to find, download and install all the drivers.

If you are using the Genuine Windows operating system, then download 'Microsoft Security Essentials' for free from the Microsoft website. This should take care of your viruses.

Second get the latest Service pack provided by Microsoft and this should update the drivers.

And basic things, like removing unnecessary files, Defrag you hard disk, etc should also add up to the speed.

Normally this means the cpu is trying to boot from your cd drive and it is a non system disk in the drive. When you boot your cpu open the drive and make sure it is empty. If so if you have any other disks or mem cards in the cpu then remove them and your cpu should start up. If this is not the case, let me know and I will help you further.

We have a toshiba Sattelite A45-140. Hard drive problem


It is not that hard to remove the drive, though, if you are prone to have leftover screws when you take devices apart, you should get help. And before you part with your cash, make sure that the hard disks available are compatble with your laptop, since I have difficulties finding non SATA (IDE) disks for my old 5005.
