Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
My laptop internet has wireless connection thru my desktop
it takes turning the computer on and off for @ least 30 minutes, the message that comes up is "no operating system found". Once on it freezes a few times and I have to turn off and on, it comes right back up, after several freezes it stays on and runs well. Are all the updates necessary for the computer to run correctly, can't you download the when needed.
HP pavillionze4200. Do not have original cd rom. Windows XP.
Thank you all for your help.
Can you help me.
It sounds like your computer is not recognising the hard drive. Go into the bios (keep pressing the delete key as your computer starts up ) and find 'hard drive auto select' and press enter to see if your computer can recognise the hard drive. Even if this works it sounds like your hard drive is on the way out.
1/ Make sure no floppy or CD in drives
2/ Check Hard Drive cable connections, both ends
3/ Go into BIOS and check drive is recognised in there

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on
both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.
Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
Some laptops will have a button to push that toggles the wireless. it might be located on either side or front or just above the keyboard.
If no other computers are able to connect then go to the wireless router and unplug it for 30 seconds, then plug it back up. If you have a modem and a router, you only want to unplug the wireless router.
