My HP laptop isn't booting up and saying an operating system wasn't found what do I need to do

Make sure you do not have a CD or Flash Drive in the computer and then restart. If you still get this message, your hard drive has become corrupted or has failed. Your data may still be recoverable. Pressing F10 or F11 as the computer starts should start recovery options if that part of the drive has not been damaged. If that does not work, other recovery options depend on if you have another computer or if you have a Windows install CD.
If there is important data that you have not backed up, be very very careful because the recovery process can wipe your data.

Key note book vaio cr failed to start because some recent hardware or software change might have screwed it up, any way to solve ? Without a windows installation disc?

Hi kevin_yomama,

This issue may occur due to any Software or Hardware changes in the Computer. Restoring the Computer to an earlier date when the Computer was working correctly should fix the issue. However, it is required to restore the Computer in the Safe Mode.

Please restart the Computer, press and hold the F8 key to access the Safe Mode. Once you are there in Safe Mode, please click All Programs, Accessores, System Tools and System Restore. This will open the System Restore window, there, please select a date when the Computer was working correctly. Performing the System Restore to an earlier date should fix the issue.

If the issue still perists even after performing the System Restore in the Computer, you will need to perform the System Recovery in the Computer. Your Computer is shipped with a recovery partition which is present in the hidden part of the Hard Drive. You can use the Recovery Partition to re-install the Operating System in the Computer. Performing the System Recovery using the Recovery Partition will erase all the User Data in the Computer.

To access the Recovery Partition, please restart the Computer, press and hold the F10 Key. This will boot the Computer to an Edit Boot Options screen, please press the Enter Key there. This will launch the VAIO Recovery Center. Please select the "Restore C: Drive" option at the VAIO Recovery Center to perform the System Recovery. Performing the System Recovery will re-install the pre-installed Operating System, Drivers and Applications to restore the Computer to the factory settings.

Good Luck!

Please let me know if you have any further questions or require any further assistance.

Thank you for using FixYa.

As the Recovery Partition in the Hard Drive is not working, you may try performing a BIOS reset.

Performing a BIOS reset should resolve any issues related to the Recovery Partition.

Please open the below link to view the steps to perform a BIOS reset:

As the Operating System installed in the Computer is Windows Vista, you may also try performing the "Windows Startup Repair".

Please open the below link to view the steps to perform the Windows Startup Repair:

Please try performing both the steps which I have mentioned above.

Performing the above steps should resolve the issue.

If the issue still persists, then the issue might be due to the Recovery Partition

The Files in the Recovery Partition might have been corrupted.

However, you may also perform the System Recovery by purchasing the Recovery Discs online.

You may purchase the Recovery Discs for the Computer by visiting the below link:

Once you have obtained the Recovery Discs, you may perform the System Recovery.

Please open the below link to view the steps to perform the System Recovery using the Recovery Discs:

Please try performing all the steps which I have mentioned above.

Performing all the above steps should resolve the issue.

Cant access control panel or system restore. And if i get to the screen and click on file the desktop icon disappear

The issue can be due to virus in the system. I suggest you to scan your system completely and if any virus is found, remove it. Check if you are able to access Control Panel or System Restore after that.
You can perform Norton online scan from the below link:
If the above steps do not resolve the issue, perform System Recovery.
Before performing System Recovery, backup your data as recovery will completely erase the data and will restore the notebook to factory settings.
Visit the below link for information on System Recovery:
Select Acer Recovery and perform System Recovery.

My Vista is a peice.

The first thing you can do is a Hard Reset...A Hard Reset in other words is releasing the flea power out of your system... We can perform this by going ahead and unplugging the pin from the Notebook from which you get the power source and then remove the battery... Press the Power On Button for 30 seconds....Then go ahead and connect the battery and plug in the A/C Adapter pin andf restart the Notebook....If this does not work then you need to do go ahead and do a System Recovery....But before you perform a System Recovery you need to take a bach up of all your important data with the help of a local technician....This process of System Recovery takes around 1 and a Half hour.....You can perform a System Recovery by shutting down the system and then as soon as you restart the system we need to press the F11 key on the keyboard... The first screen it will show you is Windows is Loading files.... The second screen it will show you is HP Recovery....Welcome to System Recovery ... we need to click Next... Then it will give a screen where it will show System Restore Click No and then Next.... The next screen is System Recovery Click Yes and the click Next...System Recovery will start.... Once System Recoveryis done Please click Finish and then it will go ahead and install the softwares that were shipped with your system...It will be reset to Factory settings....As brand as new.... The system will shut down and restart five or six times before it will complete the installation of all the HP Softwares that were shipped with the system....Please remember that you need to take a back up with the help of a Local Technician & incase you have done it while performing the recovery it will give you an option where you need to click on Don't Back Up my system.....

Help with my pc

Check to see if you have a recovery partition on the hard drive. When some computers first power up you see some options like "Press F2 to enter setup, F3 to perform system recovery, etc..." If this is what your computer shows, press the appropriate key to perform the system recovery and follow the screen prompts. If you don't see any options like this, try entering the system BIOS during power on and see if there is an option in the BIOS menu to perform a system recovery. Make sure you back up any files you want to keep before performing the system recovery because they will be deleted.
