This would mean that when your PC attempted to boot, it was unable to find or access your Hard Drive within your computer.
It is hard to discern whether this message is coming from the BIOS or the windows installation on your computer, from what you've given.
But it sounds like the windows installation couldn't be found on the hard drive, it's very likely that you'll have to reinstall windows on the computer, if you have any recovery DVD/CDs that came with the computer, now would be the time to try and use them.
Beware that this usually involves formatting the PC's Hard Drive, which means any data on that hard drive will be lost.
Sounds like you have a MALWARE, try this:
If you are running Windows XP: Click on START----> RUN ----> write "msconfig" and hit ENTER.
Look in that window the tab STARTUP and click on it.
Unselect everything, apply and OK then the utility ask you to reboot the system, reboot it.
The next step is to take your antivirus and do an update of its database. Then do a full scan system.
There are a few steps more, but this is a good begin. Try it and keep me posted.
you may wanna try to go to safe mode (turn off pc then turn it on again while pressing F8) then find there disable automatic restart when system failure then reboot your computer.it should work fine
hope this helps :D
Please can you try the following 1) Switch on Laptop 2) Immediatley press the F8 key continuoulsy until a advanced start up menu is presented 3) Choose safe mode 4) Once in safe mode click Start>Run and type in msconfig 5) click the start up tab and remove all the ticks and then click ok and let the Laptop restart and see if this goes into windows
When reinstalling XP, install in a directory other than WINDOWS. Your My Documents will be safe, unless you have already overwritten it. Other data should be safe.DO NOT FORMAT THE DISK as the installation suggests.
If your Usb port works, then the mobo is working, so possible graphics problem.
Try booting up in safe mode(normally pressing F8) on boot up then highlight 'start windows in safe mode', to see if Windows will load with only minimal drivers, if so restart again, pressing F8 again, but this time highlight 'start windows with last known good configuration'
Doing any of these 2 things can be done in any order, either last known good config first or safe mode.
