SOURCE: operating system not found on my laptop

Hi DONNAk123

There are many possible reasons for this problem. The most common of which is corruption of your file system or the "master boot record". (Each having to do w/ the computer's hard disk drive.)

If you could, please, answer the following questions it would help a great deal in determining what the next step to take is.

(01) What is the make of your laptop?

(02) What is the model?

(03) What is the serial number or service tag number (Dell)?

(04) What operating system is installed on the laptop?

(05) Do you have the system restore CDs or operating system CD that came w/ the computer?

(06) Did any event precipitate this problem? (dropping the laptop, installing or uninstalling software or hardware drivers, installing operating system or any other updates, system "crash", etc.)

This and any other information you can provide can be very helpful.

Thank you,
BJ

The clicking is from the hard drive. This clicking , along with the error op system not found, indicates that the drive has crashed or failed. You will have to replace the hard drive.

Unfortunately the OS got corrupted and you need to re install the Operating system. There is no other way to fix the problem but use the recovery disc.
If you dont have a recovery disc you may want to contact the manufacturer of your laptop and order one.
Or if you can use a retail version of Operating system and once finished installing you may need to download the drivers of your laptop on the support site.
Hope this helps.

Hi there,
You should be able to fix this simply by inserting the original Cd that came with the computer and following the onscreen instructions.
Or the startup disks (if created) when you first used your laptop.
Alternatively If you do not have the one that came with your computer then you should be able to purchase one from ebay quite easily, and then insert it and follow the onscreen instructions.
I hope this helps you, Chris

Black screen with curser


It is what is called the "Black Screen of Death (BlSod)/(KSOD)" if you are using Vista or the later Windows 7. There are many causes for the BiSod/KSOD... some may say it is due to Micro**** updates and patches or as what Micro**** claims that is is due to malware infection, most likely something from the Daonol family of Trojans.

Google for it or I'll share you this site to give you some insights of the BiSod/KSOD.

here's one of many you could read:

http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/183502/three_tips_to_avoid_the_windows_black_screen_of_death.html


For a fix you may follow these steps:


After the black screen with cursor appears, press the shift key several times (5 to 10 times). A window should appear that reads “Go to the Ease of Access Center to disable the keyboard shortcut.” Click on that item, then follow these instructions:
  1. In the explorer window that appears, clear the address entry and type MSCONFIG then press enter. Run MSCONFIG.
  2. Uncheck the two items in selective startup and press apply, then restart the computer.
  3. The computer should start normally. Now click the Start button and type MSCONFIG again, then press enter. Uncheck Windows Event Log and Windows Event Collector, then restart the system.
This may or may not work on your state but your last resort is to extract your hard drive and back-up to another unit before re-installing your OS.


Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate.

Acer Aspire 3610 wont start up, black screen comes up stating disk error. I am unable to have it start in safemode by pressing F8, nothing happen. THe only thing that does happen is a black screen appears...


The other way to fix it, you need to disassemble your laptop if you've familiar the unit. Usually the HDD has not been attach check the HDD cable (SATA or IDE) replace it. On other hand if the same things happen and you don't have windows CD, it's time to buy an windows CD installer. Reformat your unit to fix the problem.

Good luck!
