Turn it all the off. Then pull the hard drive out and put it back in again. Now, put your system disk (Win XP?) into the drive and turn the laptop on. It should do something else now. I have had this happen on several laptops I have rebuilt and it takes patience to get them started sometimes.... I have managed to load XP onto all of them eventually!

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Non System Disk or Disk error Replace and strike any key when ready


At some time during the powering up process, there will be a display at the bottom that says"at the bottom it says "Press F10 to enter system setup utility". Pls do so to enter CMOS/BIOS configuration. Look for the Boot (Order) page. Once in the page, instructions how to change or move boot priority is usually at the bottom.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: non- system disk or disk error

This means it cannot read the HDD in the machine. Have you left a disk in the CD/DVD slot or a usb drive in one of the usb ports?

You may have to insert your operating system disk in the CD/DVD drive and do a repair installation.

Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready

Do you have a disc in one of the drives? DVD, CD? Remove the disc and try to boot again. I haven't seen an error code like this since early Windows. If this doesn't work contact Compaq customer service.

When l switch on my 2710 it has a black screen and says non system disc or disc error

Either the hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced, or the operating system has corrupted and simply needs to be re-installed. HP's usually have a DFS test in the BIOS menu to see if your hard drive is faulty.

I have an HP Compaq tc4400 that I got from an old friend that had no use of it . but when I turn it on it says Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready but I dont have a disk ....

It sounds like there's a problem with Windows (assume that's the operating system it used to have). I think you'll need to get a Windows install disk. Installing Windows is actually not that hard, and it sounds like you've got nothing to lose.

If you don't have access to a copy of Windows, why not try out Windows 8 -

I assume it'll only be free for a few more days as Windows 8 will be released in under a week now.

Hope that helps.

Laptop won'y start up has non-system disk or disk error

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

Non-system disk or disk error replace and stricke any key when ready that which in my black screen,what can i do? thank you kind regards

sounds like your pc is trying to boot from a disc drive without an operating system installed on it. I sometimes get this with my toshiba 1.5G external. Try turning off any non-booting drive connected to the machine and try again. If you don't have any external device connected then your system disc is either corrupt or dead and needs replacing or the operating system reinstalling.

Sorry for my ignorance, first off, I performed a back up on my HP compaq tc4400, unfortunately I dont have enough momery. . after the back up. . as windows started, something appeared it says, ...

Backups do NOT Erase files ever, well if not done backwards?
NO OS stated, how can any one help lacking that.
TC4400 hard ware. ONLY !

no boot, the HDD will not boot , unstated windows, or is it linux?>
windows what.?
sounds XP like to me...
the book on your PC tells you to use restore to fix, bad loaders.
startup repair its called, on mine its F11.
on Vista back is F10. this key activates

here is what came new.
HP Compaq tc4400 Tablet PC
it came with Windows 2000,XP or Vitsta
its so old it has a SQUARE scree, 4:5 ratio.
the carbon date is as old as, 2006
It is still supported by HP due to it was made for all those years.
and the 10 year clock is not timed out yet on support.s
the books are still on line and the drivers too.

see these books>

does BIOS work, press F10 at power on, see BIOS screens
this is first,
then the BIOS then boots the HDD, C: boots.
to repair a good HDD, startup one runs this.

F11 is your hot key, for HP recovery /restore.
page 188 here is the page (PDFPAGE) to read.

the books says, on that page follow the onscreen instructions
it says that to cop out, as there are 3 OS used, here.
each uses different screens
I too cop out, not doing all 3 now for you.
next time say what OS is there.

on the bottom of said PC
is a COA sticker on said sticker is the MS license
clearly stating what OS is there. (was there day 1)
but if someone upgraded this PC, then the sticker is a lie.

oops but you killed the HDD totally dead of all partitions did you not? Sanitized, word, used.
no name of disk used, my guess is MIL spec erase.
