GX150 optiflex "setup utility" configuration


OPERATING SYSTEM. That would be Windows.

You are in BIOS Setup, and shouldn't be in there.

Computer OFF. (Press the Power On button, and hold it for 10 seconds until the computer turns off; if it is on)

Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold for a count of 10 seconds. let go. Do this same procedure 2 more times.

If the Power On LED light blinks, when you press the Power On button for the third time; hold for ten seconds, let go; do it again.
Keep pressing until the Power On LED light doesn't blink on.

This resets CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

Operating system error is solved by installing the Restoration Disk/s, and when asked choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)
If this doesn't solve the problem, you have a bad harddrive data cable, or a bad harddrive.

There might be a problem in your Hard drive. If you have tried so, Try removing your hard drive and set it up again. If it still doesn't work.You may try using a recovery disk or the cd used to install the operating system. If still the error is appearing, try to reinstall the operating system. if still, I'm sorry you might need to replace your hard drive.

Check in the power options area of your operating system, and switch off hibernate and switch off sleep, this should prevent the machine powering down.

if your power cord has a small needle-like central pin then you're probably up for a new power supply. I just had a HP with similar symptoms and the problem was with the power supply.

Trying to install a new hard drive in a cf51 laptop and I'm getting "no operating system found"


A new hard drive will not contain an operating system. It will have to be formatted and then an operating system installed. Follow the instructions that came with it or try booting with the operating system CD.
