Well if it does that you should make sure all media is unplugged from the computer. If you have the Windows XP Original Release disk insert it and re-install Windows XP. If still says the same error "operating system not found" take it to a computer specialist near you or go on another computer and contact www.microsoft.com, thats all I can say.
It is a clear case of memory dumping. when ur computer is booting up keep pressing F8 and you will get option to start the windows in safe mode. start the window in safe mode and check if any drivers are melfunctioning and if possible just change the slot of your RAM. It works most of the time, atleast worked for my and a few of my friend's computer and try to keep the CPU from humid atmosphere.
files in system32\config\ are missing or corrupt. there is a back up stored by default at c:\windows\repair you can copy the contents of windows\repair folder into system32\config\ and it should solve the problem, you can do it with the windows installation cd by using the recovery console.
Go into the repair folder enter the following commands in repair console
cd windows (press enter) cd repair (press enter) copy *.* c:\windows\system32\config\ (press enter)
files should be copied
type exit, quit or restart or reboot to restart the computer.
Normally a blue screen of death (BSOD) with memory dump is indicative of a fault in the:
1. Possibly memory;
2. video; or
In some instances, Software-
a. Drivers; or
b. the Operating System itself.
You may want to check the memory installed in your laptop. Some versions have them underneath the keyboard while most would have it at the bottom covered by a lid/plate secured with 1 or 2 small screws. The memory will spring out if you unlock the two side clips. You need to clean the little gold contacts with a pencil eraser. Re-insert back securely and try again.
If the above does not correct the BSOD, you may need to replace them.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
