Your computer can not find the system to boot from.

Which suggests that your BIOS has lost where to look for the system.

Check your BIOS for the correct Drive settings ie A if floppy Drive C if hard disk or "x" if CD

where "x" is equal to CD's Drive Identification.

Then try rebooting.

If that still does not work
then SET BIOS to Boot From floppy Drive A: and ensure you have a bootable Floppy Drive in drive A: and try rebooting again.

If that works it would appear that you have lost you your operating system from your hard drive which will require you to reload the operating system to your hard disk. (Remember to set Bios to Boot from Drive "x" where your bootable source is to reload the operating system)

I got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Thanks for using Fixya

Every time the system is turned on it says Non-system disk or disk error, replace and strick any key when ready. There are no disk in the disk drive or the sd drive. No matter how many keys you strike...


Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* bootable files on a USB memory-stick or SD memory-card
* from 3.5-inch diskette drive (if installed)
* from CD/DVD disk
* from your disk-drive

Your computer tried to boot from your disk-drive, but FAILED to do so.

Since the disk-drive is "dead", it tries to boot from any of the other devices,
and displays that error-message when it cannot boot.

So, your disk-drive has "died". Ouch!

You need to purchase a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows onto it.

Is error happens mostly when usb devices or diskettes is inserted to the computer.. The computer tries to boot from them but when there isn't any boot data it just keeps making that error..

Just try to remove all extra usb-devices, cd's/dvd's and floppies/diskettes connected to the computer, so it's only monitor, power, mouse, keyboard and internet that is plugged in..

PS: Please rate this solution
