Question about PC Laptops
My friends laptop last night was on top of a car speaker box obviously with the speakers inside, when she come to turn the laptop back on it was doing the blue screen and restarting. I tried her recovery disk this didnt work, I have managed to get my hands on a XP CD but the following error occurs when finalising the installation of XP:
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit press F3
I have no idea what to do now, I have taken a look around and its mentioning the fact that if I had a floppy disk drive etc then I could download the SATA drives etc, but I do not have a floppy disk drive to hand. Can you help me in what you can suggest I can do so I don't have to fork out on getting another hard drive?
Thanks for your help.
The errors that you keep on having is referring to the hard drive where the your windows operating system is stored. you need to make it sure that your hard drive is detected in your system.
To check the hard drive, you will need to restart the computer. When you will see the logo, you will see the option like F2 for setup. You will need to go to the BIOS of the computer to check if the hard drive is detected. If the hard drive is not detected. You may need to reseat it.
Let me know the type of system you have.
Keep me posted.
