No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.

Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.
HDD password? Is the laptop encrypted? Unless it s a system password set in the BIOS. You'll have to know what that is or reset it. Reseting the BIOS requires taking apart the laptop and finding the CMOS battery and shorting it.
Looks like your master boot record is corrupted or you have a bad hard drive. Without cd drive there is one option but it is not guarantied it will work. You can acctually make USB flash drive bootable but you need another computer with cd drive and an XP Operating System CD. You can google how to make usb flash drive bootable for XP and it will give you step by step instructions. Or you can borow an external cd drive or take it to pc repair store. Good luck.
The blue screen is BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death). this happens due to some technical problem in HDD or due to bad sectors in memory. Its time to change the HDD, backup important data and files before its too late.
