Unfortunately the mot common reason for 'operating system not found' is a failed or corrupted hard drive. You need to go into your BIOS menu and see if your hard drive is recognized by the computer. When booting up push F1 and enter the BIOS menu. Go to the menu item for boot up or start up and see if your hard drive is recognized. If your hard drive is recognised then it may be salvageable by booting from a recovery disk or reinstalling windows from a CD. If the drive is not recognised in the BIOS, you have a dead hard drive or maybe just a bad connection. More help can be found on the Lenovo website site and the Forum at that site.

If you are using a Windows Vista operating system, this is what you can do:

1. Ensure that you are connected to the Internet and that you know the model number of your laptop.
2. connect to the HP website through the link http://h20180.www2.hp.com/...
3. After selecting your laptop model, click on Software & Drivers Downloads
4. Hence, choose your operating system (in this case it is Vista).
5. Choose the software update file that you need and follow the instructions. please do let me know if u using XP os.. cheers!!

VGA Driver Not Found for Asus X95GL WinXP 2002 Pro SP2


I think perhaps that should be X59GL.

The GL suffix suggests that the graphics chip is made by nVidia.

Please try downloading the GeForce for Notebooks driver for your relevant Operating System. You did not mention whether you run Windows XP, Windows Vista, or whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit - you need to know this.

If you check the System Properties in Control Panel, you should find this information.

Here is the driver download page:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_drivers.html

I hope this solves your issue.

Data corrupted


How did you do it? I've never heard of a way a customer could copy all his C drive (including Windows) to another drive. I suspect what you've accidently done is to move some some of the important files including the boot.ini. To get this back to normal you'll need to do a Windows system repair or reinstall.

Please send win98se driver for hp laptop model no. nx7300


Hello sir.

I understand that you need windows 98 drivers for your Notebook.

I have searched the HP website and found the drivers for the following operating systems.

Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP Home edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows Vista Home
Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise
Microsoft Windows Vista Business

But not for Microsoft Windows 98...

Windows 98 is considered to be obsolete now. As far as I know no one will provide drivers for this model Notebook for Windows 98. Please install atleast Windows 2000 in the Notebook for the drivers to work correctly.

For other operating system drivers other than Windows 98 could be found in the following link..

Operating system


first of all you will have to format your laptop cause when you have vista u cant install xp with it
u will have to install xp first and then install vista
about the driver u will have to do some settings in cmos setup and will have to change hdd type
that will solve your driver problem
so first install xp and then install vista
regarding drivers for xp u will have to visit hp website and chat with a online technical person and ask him to mail you the link for drivers for xp
