The most likely explanation is that your hard drive has failed. You can try removing and reseating it. Failing that, borrow one for testing or buy a new one. As a last resort, try putting the hard drive ( or even the whole laptop ) in the refrigerator overnight. Really! :) If this restores operation even temporarily you definitely have a bad hard drive.

I am having hp 530 laptop with intel core duo inside,512mb RAM,80 gb hard disk.I want to upgrade my processor,ramand hard disk. can i do it ? upto what limit ?


Unfortunately I would have to say no, you won't be able to upgrade the processor. I located a user manual at

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12722_na/12722_na.PDF

According to specifications you can increase the Ram to 2 MB and the hard drive should be a 120GB hard driver Sata

System Memory 1024-MB 533/667-MHz DDR2 SDRAM in one slot
Two SODIMM slots; supported memory 2048 MB2
Operates at a maximum of 533-MHz with 667-MHz memory
Hard Drive 120-GB3 5400 rpm SMART SATA

The processor will be limited to what the motherboard can support and it was designed for that 1.6 Ghz processor. Unfortunately it is very difficult to upgrade processors in laptop machines. I do have to ask how old this machine is. The specification indicates MegaBytes of ram and this is actually very little Ram in today's computing world. Most machines support at least 2 gigaBytes of Ram to start with.

After powering on the following message appears: Non-system disk or disk error replace and trike any key when ready. Trying to press F10 or F9 when powering on doesn not give any result. Does it mean that...


First, check if you have any usb memory keys or other removable media in your system. That error used to show up when you'd leave a non-bootable floppy in your pc. If you don't have anything in your system other than your hard drive- listen. If you are hearing clicking, grinding noises- then yes, your hard drive has mechanically failed. If you don't- then the chances the drive is about to fail since the boot sector was corrupted. Try to make certain the drive is seated correctly in your system- if that doesn't help- you will need to contact the technical support for your system to get a replacement hard drive if your system is in warranty- or you can purchase one, and replace it yourself.

When i turn on my e system 4213 laptop. keeps coming up with error message operating system not found. please help


Hi make sure you have no usb pen drives, floppy disks, or cdroms inserted then switch on the machine. If you still get the same error then your hard disk drive has malfunctioned or corrupted. If you have a restore cd or DVD insert this and restart the machine you may get an error message stating your hard disk drive is not found if it has malfunctioned.

Laptop receiving message: No operating system found


That error usually indicates one of two things, your file system is corrupt and the master boot record or partition tables have corrupted.... or, in light of a liquid being spilled, some possibly got into the laptop.

I'm not sure right off the top of my head, but I think the hard drive has an access door on the bottom. Which you can remove a couple screws to remove the cover. I would visually inspect under that cover, and other covers if any while your at it, to check for any signs that liquid got in it.
