Hello my laptop keeps saying no operating system found


This is a problem with recognizing your hard drive or the Operating System installed on the hard drive. Put your Windows 7 or Vista CD into your drive and restart, booting to the CD drive. Try to repair your startup problems. If this does not work, you may have a hard drive failure.

Acer 5050 keep getting error 0200 and says operating system


Hi, error 0200 it's just a generic code which the people from Acer dont even know. It's defenitely has something to do with the hard drive. I suggest you remove it (it's easy) and connect it to another computer and backup your data. That code could mean a "deleted partition" or Master Boot Record failure (software related) or something inside your hard drive (hardware related) so first do a backup like it told you and then try reinstalling the OS. If you still have the problem download some software on the internet such as mhdd which can test the hard drive to make sure but please backup as soon as you can. Dont try to use "chkdsk" or any tools BEFORE you backup because they stress the hard drive and can make things really difficult later to backup. They might even damage the hard drive. I hope this helps.

Operating system not found


That means that either the hard drive is not connected correctly, or that the hard drive is formatted and as a result is blank.

Check the connections to your hard drives inside your computer. Otherwise call the Geek!!

Startup of laptop


This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operational.
