Operating system not found dell inspiron

There are some possibilities:
1. There is a bootable device (such as USB flash drive) attached to this laptop, but the device does not have proper operating system,
2. There is a media in the DVD drive, and it does not contain proper bootable system,
3. The hard drive is dead, so the laptop does not find any bootable device,
4. The hdd boot sector is damaged,
5. The required boot files are missing or damaged.

You can check:
- 1 & 2: check the laptop and the dvd tray,
- 3, 4 & 5: Check using DVD reinstallation media. It will check and try to install an operating system, so it will detect the previous operating system. There is an option to repair the previous operating system, so you need to read the available options. If you have valuable data in this hard drive, then you need to take out the hard drive and copy the data to the other data storage.

Operating system not found

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

Run Network Repair From CMD b> The command-line interface for Microsoft Windows is accessible through the "Command Prompt" utility in the "Accessories" folder. The command prompt is particularly useful for network diagnostics and repair. For example, you can issue the "ping" command from the command prompt to test for and verify network connectivity.

Fix Network Device Driver Errors
b> A network device driver is a small program that enables a network device to communicate with the computer's operating system, as well as with other computers connected to a network. Errors may occur if the network device driver becomes corrupted because of viruses and other causes. You can fix errors by following the steps laid out below.

Check the information that came with your network device for compatibility issues; you need to know whether it is compatible with your computer, as well as the version of Windows you are using. Check if the network device is properly attached to the computer. Click on the "Start" button then choose "All programs." Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" from the list of options. Select "Device Manager" from the "Properties window." In the "Device Manager" window, click the plus sign (+) beside the "Network adapters." This will list all the network devices installed. The network device that has an error should also have a yellow exclamation point right beside the network device icon. Double-click on the network device icon that causes the error. On the "General" tab, click on the "Troubleshoot" button and answer the "Troubleshoot Wizard's" questions. Follow the resolution steps provided by the "Troubleshoot wizard." If Step 3 does not work, check if your hardware or network device came with a software disc. Use the disc to install the network device on your computer. Follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer. You can also go to the manufacturer's website to check for updates available for the device driver. If no updates are available, try manually updating the driver. Getting an updated network device driver will prevent any conflicts from arising in the future. Go back to the "Device manager" window. Double click on the device that you need to update. This should bring up a small window that has the device's properties. Click on the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Reboot your computer, if necessary. If the network device still shows an error, Go back to the device manager, right-click on the device that shows an error and select "Uninstall." Restart your computer and open the "Device Manager" again as soon as the machine is back up. Right-click on the device and then choose "Scan for hardware changes." If the device continues to malfunction, the hardware or device may already be corrupted. Consider getting professional assistance from from a computer technician. Hope this helps.

When i boot up my laptop i am getting the error message, "operating system not found." Can you please give me advice on what to do to fix my laptop? Toshiba laptop and im scared i may lose the things

Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Compaq desktop persario xp non-system disk or disk error

This means that the system identifies the hard drive on your computer as one that is not bootable, in other words, it does not contain any operating system, or it does contain one, but the disk format is not recognized by the system. For example, Windows operating systems only identify two types of disks and that is DYNAMIC or BASIC. If a Hard disk has an operating system and has been converted to DYNAMIC, you can not start any operating system on it. Only BASIC disks can be used to start an operating system. Here is a solution for you... Get a copy of the operating system you are using and boot the computer from it. Press F2 when booting and go to the system BIOS where you are going to configure the boot order or the boot sequence and make the CD drive the first booting device, so that the system can boot from the CD. If you receive a message stating that the SETUP can not find any hard disk installed.... then there must be a problem with the Hard disk format. Remove the hard disk and connect it to a desktop computer as a slave. This will enable you to see the Hard disk as a removable device on the 'My computer" menu.Go to start, right-click on "My computer" and select "Manage". This will take you into computer management console, then select "Disk management" and this will bring all the disks and drives connected to that computer and all their respective information. Click of the drive that you just connected and check on the bottom middle column, the type of the disk whether it is DYNAMIC or BASIC. If it is Dynamic, then you have to covert it back to basic. Make sure you make a data backup before you do this. This is because the system will delete anything on the hard drive. When you are done, take the hard drive back to your computer and boot from the CD again and install a new operating system. You should be good after this...
