If the computer is asking for a system disc, then what it is really saying is that it cannot find the Operating System. This usually means that one a a few things:
1. The BIOS is not set to select the internal hard drive as the boot device. This can change by accident or if the BIOS gets corrupted.
2. The OS itself is corrupted and cannot boot.
3. The HDD (hard drive) has failed.
When you say you need a "system disk", what you really need is to reload the Operating System. You can get Windows from many sources. Then you only need the drivers that are specific to the main board you have. These can be downloaded for free from the ASUS website. Just go to support, downloads, select you main board model and revision, and download the drivers for your particular Operating System. Of course, if the problem is hardware related, simply getting a new OS will not completely solve the problem. A BIOS corruption would be the worst possible issue since that would require a reflash of the BIOS, and hopefully it would be in good enough condition to perform one without crashing completely. The simplest problem would be if the BIOS was simply not looking at the hard drive as a boot device. Go into the BIOS and ensure that the internal hard drive is selected as the first boot device. If not, make it such and then save and reboot to see if the problem is solved. Otherwise, you need to ensure that the hard drive itself is not faulty. If it is ok, then a new OS and reloading of the drivers and other programs is necessary.
It sounds like your hard drive is not being recognized. I hope you didn't unplug it while it was still turned on as that can cause hard drive corruption. The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.
It depends whether or not the hard disk is corrupt or if there are just missing or corrupt boot or system files. Based on your message above the drive is not corrupt, but is going bad or has some issues. If it's letting you get on and work for a while then it's not corrupt yet, so if you can, start getting your documents, music and pictures off.
One way to tell for sure if the drive is corrupt and the data is not retrievable is to slave it on another computer, but most people don't have the tools to do that, so let's try this:
Run the Check Disk Utility to see if it can repair the damaged files or clusters.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
This can happen for several reasons, hard drive failure, deletion of a needed file, format the hard drive, removal of a hard drive, or virus causing corruption on the hard drive. Without knowing which of these it is, it would be very difficult to tell you how to fix it.
STOP 0x00000024, 0X0000024, 0X24 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM = this stop error means that your NTFS file system is corrupt and this is practically impossible to fix - absolutely everything on your hard disk is trashed. The only reliable way to fix that is to reinstall Windows.
What these messages are actually telling you is that the computer can't see the hard drive. Now the real question is why? The best way to solve this would be take the hard drive out and slave to another system. This would tell you if the hard drive is actually spinning, and if all your data is retrieveable. If it can be seen in another system then my guess is that your drive has viruses corrupting the Windows startup files. If it can't be seen then the hard drive will have to go to a professional for data recovery.
Your problem is that your boot information is corrupted.. This is caused when the sector where the data is stored becomes a bad sector.. Reinstalling windows shud solve the problem.. You may contact me if u still have the problem
