Non-disk sistem or disk error

Non-disk ordisk error

  • Nahum Reduta May 11, 2010

    Is there a floppy or USB drive connected to the computer at boot? It might be trying to boot off of it, and fails because there aren't any bootable systems (a common case). Simply remove the removable drive and continue/reboot. (You can also set BIOS to boot only from hard drives, or to never boot from removable devices.)

    A hard drive error would usually give a different message, save for those errors where the HDD is completely unseen by BIOS.

Cannot open my laptop... Did everything from removing the battery, cleaning the fan but still screen says non system disk or disk error replace n strike any key when ready.... Help pls

Please try the following:

1. Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the CD-ROM drive. If there is no CD or remove the floppy disk from the floppy drive.

2. 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. Normally, this would be your hard drive.

My e-machine w3410 gives me a disk boot error insert disk and hit enter what does that mean

You probably have a non-bootable disc in the CD drive - when the computer powers up, your BIOS's first boot device is probably the CD drive and since it has a non-bootable disc in it, it can't boot. Remove the disc and re-boot your computer.

I m getting non disk error ,how can i open my desktop

non disk error = the hard disk has failed, there isn't one left to boot from.
Get a Linux Live-CD like and boot from it - if you are lucky the disk will still have some life left in it just enough to recover your files. After that remove the old hard disk, buy a new one and reinstall.

FIrst make sure there are no non-bootable disks or thumb drives in the computer. Then get into bios and check the boot sequence and make sure all drives are enabled.

I have a HP 8595c computer. I put a DVD in and it froze. I restarted the computer and now it won't boot up proberly. I get this message. "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key...

Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus
