If you have a floppy disk in the floppy disk drive remove it.  If not then take out your hard drive and put it back in it may have lost connection.  if not im sorry to say your hard drive probly is not being read correctly and should be taken out and tested.

1782 disk control failure / non-system disk or disk error That is all it does


That means, there's an error reading the files of windows system, or something else to start your Operative System.
Try to reinstall your windows.
If you get errors when you try to install the windows, tell us the error on the installation. It can be an Hard Disk problem and you must replace it.

Laptop won'y start up has non-system disk or disk error


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hp labtop non system disk error


Hi, this error most often occurs when you try to boot your computer up with either a flash drive (USB drive) or a CD/DVD already in the computer. The system checks these drives first for operating systems before the hard drive, and when it doesn't find your operating system it displays that error. Remove the disk or flash drive and try to boot your computer again, and the error should go away.

Try re-starting in safe mode, press F8 as its booting, assuming all goes well choose safe mode, this loads a windows shell. Using Accessories - System tools - System restore - Restore to a point prior to your problemsn.

Non;system disk or disk error


This issue may occur if your start device (such as a floppy disk drive, hard disk drive, or CD-ROM drive) does not contain boot files.

To resolve this issue, use one or more of the following methods, and then restart your computer:
  • Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.
  • Change your computer's boot sequence. To do this, you must change your computer's setup and the option that controls which device your computer uses to start from. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.
  • If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP) on the drive.

On some keyboards, there's a hidden 'feature' where if you hit CAPS LOCK and Shift at the same time, everything works backwards, until you hit that combo again.
