Why when i power up i get a ,, missing operating syst


This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:
  • The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
  • The hard disk is damaged.
  • Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).
Check your BIOS or System Setup to see if it detects your hard disk drive.
If it does see your hard disk drive then follow these instructions to fix your master boot record (MBR)
windows XP XP Repair or Fix Master Boot Record Using Recovery Console
windows 7
Step one: Turn your computer on, booting from either your Windows 7 Installation DVD or Windows 7 System Recovery Disc. Remember, you may need to change the boot order inside your BIOS to have the your DVD drive boot first.
Step two: After the installation or recovery disc loads, if prompted, select your language settings and then continue. If you are using the installation DVD, when prompted by the following screen select Repair your computer.
Step three: The computer will take a moment now to scan itself for any Windows installations, after which you will likely be given a choice to select which installation you wish to repair. Select the appropriate Windows installation from the list and then continue. If by chance a problem is detected in one of your Windows installations at this initial stage, the system may also ask you if it can try to repair the problem automatically. It is up to you if you wish to let the system try to repair itself, but otherwise just select No. Step four: Once you have reached the System Recovery Options screen, as shown below, you will be faced with a list of choices that can aid you in repairing a damaged Windows 7operating systemicon1.png. If you wish to try the Startup Repair option first, it is often successful in automatically fixing many different start up issues, but in this article we will be using the Command Prompt option to resolve our problems manually. So, click Command Prompt to continue. Step five: Now sitting at the command prompt, enter the following command and then press enter:
bootrec.exe /FixMbr
While the above command does fix the MBR, and sometimes that is enough, there still might be an error with the system partition's boot sector and Boot Configuration Data (BCD). This might occur if you have tried to install another operating system alongside Windows 7, such as Windows XP. To write a new boot sector, try the following command: bootrec.exe /FixBoot

hope that helps

Screen says "No bootable device --please restart system


The "no bootable devices found" error can create headaches, as well as occasional heartache if you're a laptop user.
This error appears when your computer is unable to find a device or file required for normal operation. It could indicate one of three issues: hard drive failure, software error or motherboard malfunction.
Any of these potential problems can render your laptop useless.
Hard drive failure or software errors can lead to data loss, which can cause anguish and catastrophe, depending on the files business information, family photos, student projects at risk.

Hard Drive Failure
The interior of a hard drive is akin to a turntable.
Most hard drives contain two to three discs, known as platters, which are similar to records. These platters are read and written on by a tiny needle called the read/write head, similar to the arm and needle on a turntable.
When a hard drive functions properly, the platters spin and the read/write head accesses the files necessary to boot your computer.
Improper function of any of these physical pieces can cause a mechanical failure and result in the "no bootable devices" error.
Software Error In rare instances, a software problem more specifically, a particularly nasty virus may cause the "no bootable devices" error. Most often, if a virus attacks and corrupts your system, your computer can still detect the hard drive and operating system, and you'll see some attempt at a normal boot. If a virus attacks certain system and startup files, however, they may not be detectable next time you boot your computer, thus causing you to see "no bootable devices." This may also happen if you are manually deleting files from your computer and accidentally delete system files. Motherboard b> Sometimes individual components of your laptop's motherboard malfunction, which can cause problems ranging from loss of wireless capabilities to inability to detect an external power source. If the components that detect your hard drive fail, your laptop is unable to receive signals from the hard drive and therefore may display the "no bootable devices" error. b> Repair b> Fixing a "no bootable devices" error can prove costly. If motherboard failure caused the error, you're probably better off purchasing a new laptop; unless it's under warranty; the average motherboard replacement costs $250 to $500. You can reinstall your operating system to resolve software errors, which is fairly inexpensive by computer repair standards, costing $80 to $130 dollars, but this step may also overwrite your existing data. In some cases, data may prove so badly corrupted it's not salvageable. If you can recover it, however, that raises your repair costs. additional fee. If hard drive failure caused your "no bootable devices" error, you can replace the drive. If you need to recover data from a malfunctioning hard drive, send it to a clean room for recovery. In a clean room, technicians disassemble your hard drive and image each platter; this kind of data recovery is extremely expensive, costing up to $2000 depending on the work involved. b> Prevention b> There is no way to guarantee you will never receive a "no bootable devices" error, but there are some steps you can take to help prevent it from happening. Keep your laptop on a flat surface when using it, and avoid any bumps that may cause the hard drive's read/write mechanism to lock up. Avoid transporting your laptop while the hard drive is active; turn your computer off while traveling. Additionally, regularly run an anti-malware program to catch and remove viruses or spyware before they cause system problems.

Monitor to other cpu and it works fine. Tried recovery tools and rcovery disc but receive errors, boot from cd rom no emulation, and no hard drive found. Help!!!!


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.

On start up goes in a continuous restart cycle


There is usually a hot key you can press during boot up to start recovery (F11 is typical) This will guide you through the recovery process. I would first check all of your cables going to your hard drive, and also the one going from the hard drive to the motherboard. See if that helps. Best of luck to you!

I recently removed and replaced the same hard drive in my laptop which is an HP Pavilion 4400. I booted it up today and I get a message that says there is no operating system detected. The computer will...


Sounds like you bought your new hard drive clean with no . You simply need to put in a boot disc, such as a windows XP installation disc for example, and go through and install the operating system. Look through your CDs you got with your laptop to find a disc with a windows operating system on it, for example Windows XP Home. It may say 'press any key to boot from disc...' along the line so just press any key and you will be on your way to setting up your new system

Hope This Helps

Try to check first if your hard drive is working. Just follow the steps.

  1. Load BIOS Utility by pressing any of the following keys upon booting or as soon as you have turn on your computer. (keys may varry depending on the brand or type of computer you are using but the following are the most common (del, f1,f2,f10) Just try any of the following.
  2. Under advanced option please check you hard drive settings. A numeric value should be displayed on the list or in some cases if you see AUTO in this option it means the BIOS automatically detects the hard drive. Just place your cursor on this option and press enter. The BIOS should react and will display the type of hard drive installed.
  3. If BIOS utility was unable to detect the hard drive and you still have a blue screen everytime you boot you will need to reinstall the operating system or run your recovery disk .
