Not finding the operating system comes from the hard drive. You may have a drive that is failing. You should have it checked before it fails completely. While it is in this state, the data can still be retrieved by a repair technician.

Operating system is not found!


Try checking the boot sequence of your computer. Turn on the computer and press Del or F1 before the POST. You will see there an option for Boot Sequence. Make sure that the 1st Boot is set to your hard disk.

Bad connection from your hard drive to the laptops motherboard. ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/62p9631.pdf page 63 tells you how to remove the hard drive - I would take it out, clean the connections with rubbing alchohol, and FIRMLY put it back and see if it will come up then.
