    Attempting To Add Details__Clarify

    Sorry for the delay but was sick to resppond.

    Now when yoou start you know in the front shows souce of Power etc etc. I do not much about it but it does indicate it is trying to start__it does it for a good time than it dies out
    If you try to boot from the Bootable CD it does not. so with the Bootable rescue CD.
    By off___There is no by off meaning that I can click F2; F8 to either enter safe mode etc or BIOS

    It was working fine 2 days before it stopped.

    Did not solve this It appeared to be a motherboard overheat issue. The laptop boots then dies after time when it gets warm. Did not do the trick of cooling with invered can of dustewr to identify possible bad solder joint. some joker wanted 400 for replacement motherboard! replaced with new Apple model stayed away from crappy HP products.

    HP thinks they are GM... looking for chumps to buy inferiro products!

My laptop will not boot. Says error occurred attempting to read the boot configuration data. Tried unplugging unit removing battery and put in operating system disc. None of this has solved problem.

this is a problem with the boot sector data ...the quick fix will be like this :
insert the operating system disk ...and restart ...choose to boot from the disk ..if it is not set to boot from the disk as priority will not ask ya to press any key to boot from the disk this case you have to go to bios by pressing del or F2 on start ...and there select the cd/dvd device as primary booting device f10 to save changes and reboot...
it will start configuring your operating system again ....but after loading files ...when it gets to the first repair...just choose it ...(R) and it will get to a repairing sectore where it will ask for a command..
the proper command to solve your problem si : fixboot ...this wwill make it rewrite the boot sector and solve the problem ...
if you do not manage ...just let it reinstall the operating system ..but save the files before in another partition ...

When booting from XP 'operating system missing'.Not booting from harddisk but booting from CD

plz check in bios your hard disk is detecting, then put the first boot device as hard and exit.
If the problem is not solved then you try with another hard disk cable.if the problem is not solved then you have to buy a new hard disk
