Bad HDD? Have you tried a system restore/recovery. Reboot, at preboot repeatedly tap the F-11 key try to get to system restore/recovery.If it's an old machine you may need to replace the HDD.

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

Double check to make sure there is no floppy disk or CD-ROM disk inserted when you boot. If there is definitely no floppy or CD, your hard drive may have crashed or been corrupted. You can try installing Windows again, but it might not work if your hard drive is faulty. If it's faulty, you'll need to head to the local computer repair shop or have a geek friend help get and install a new one, then reinstall Windows.

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.

1782 disk control failure / non-system disk or disk error That is all it does


That means, there's an error reading the files of windows system, or something else to start your Operative System.
Try to reinstall your windows.
If you get errors when you try to install the windows, tell us the error on the installation. It can be an Hard Disk problem and you must replace it.

I am having a problem with the boot of my compaq aremeda 700. It says 1782 disk controller failuer then non system disk error or disk error, replace and strike any key when ready. I think this all things...


First thing to do is enter the BIOS screen. This is the computers built in system configuration. Navigate to the Exit portion and choose "Load Setup Defaults" . Save the changes and exit. The Laptop will restart. If it is still showing, ensure there isn't a disk in the CD-rom. If all of the above doesnt help. Make sure the hard drive hasn't wiggled loose.

I am trying to reinstall window xp on my conputer but i am getting non system disk error or bios error


seems like the laptop is not starting from the cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter bios thats one way to solve the problem but look for Boot menu, it will very likely be button F12 or similiar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesnt, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install xp.

here how to work the bios.

Check your floppy drive and see if there's a disk in it and remove it. If there is no diskette in the floppy drive and you are still getting the error. You can go into the Bios and turn off the "boot from floppy drive", that way it will not look for the floppy drive when booting up. Hope this helps.

Non system disk or disk error


This error can be a couple of things. If the "boot block" on the disk has become faulty, the system won't recognize that the disk has an operating system on it and will generate this error message. If the disk is defective completely, the same error will occur. If you have a boot floppy or CD, try re-writing the boot block on the disk. If that fails to resolve the problem, the disk is defective and will need to be replaced.
