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.

SOURCE: operating system not found on my laptop

Unfortunately the OS got corrupted and you need to re install the Operating system. There is no other way to fix the problem but use the recovery disc.
If you dont have a recovery disc you may want to contact the manufacturer of your laptop and order one.
Or if you can use a retail version of Operating system and once finished installing you may need to download the drivers of your laptop on the support site.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Operating System Not Found

Your Hard Disk Drive is facing SMART status check failure. It is very dificult to try anything because your CD drive also not working. Enter the bios and see if there is any option for you to disable SMART. That way the error messege will disappear, but you need a good cd drive to install a OS

SOURCE: operating system not found on my laptop

ok i have had this problem.. (my computer would show the loading screen with all of the commands at the bottom. after this it would not boot up, but show a message on a black screen saying "operating system not found")
I completly tore down the laptop and making sure i had no issues with anything. so here is what i did that is simple and ended up solving the issues 3 times in a row.

1. take the cover off for the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop ( shows 3 very small disks beside each screw)

2. grab the clear strip that is on the hard drive and pull out the hard drive. ( blow out where it connects on the right side if dirty)

3. Reconnect the hard drive this will reset it.

4. Make sure to change back the processes to defaults when the computer starts back up.. If you fail to do so you will have to repeat the process each time you turn off the computer.

(This will only work if you messed up some settings while having the computer on, and not if you have faulty parts.)
for me i ctrl alt deleted and accidentally ended some important processes..

any other issues just email me at Bostelman@hotmail.com i will try to help you out. =D

SOURCE: Just bought an asus laptop

Did you buy the notebook with an operating system (Windows) preinstalled?

Sometimes you just get the hardware and need to install the operating systems yourself.

SOURCE: my toshiba nb520' operating system is gone when i open it says operating system cannot be found.

The hard drive in your laptop is bad and will need to be replaced, first remove hardware and carefully reseat it back in place, sometimes the hard drive will restart, "long shot" if still nothing! have it checked for possible replacement.

Hi,
I live in the Philippines too and I am residing in manila. You are getting this error message because your computer does not detect a bootable device (could be a corrupted Operating System). This can be repaired using an Operating System CD or you can use the restore to factory default feature if you have one (this will delete everything and restore it to factory default). You can take this laptop to a local computer repair shop or bring it to the store where you bought it. If it is still under warranty, I think they should repair it for free.
Please give details like which Operating System you use (windows xp, vista, windows 7) on the laptop so we can give step step instructions on how to repair your operating system. Also, please check for any CD inserted on the CD-ROM drive or a USB stick drive that might interfere with the boot up process. Remove any of them before you boot your computer and see it is able to go straight to Windows.
Post here if you need further help.

My Toshiba M55-S135 laptop has a PXE-E61 Error upon starting. I did make sure the Boot is set to HDD first and LAN LAST! Still have this issue. It won't even run the Toshiba recover cd. Please help me....


Is your BIOS actually recognising your hard disk drive.
It sounds to me very much like it isn't seeing your hard disk as a physical drive and therefore as the "last option" it is trying to load a PXE image from a network server via your LAN connection.

Can you not remove LAN from your boot options completely and see then if you get message similar to

"Operating System Not Found"

My advice would be first to see if you can boot from a CD if you can boot from a CD e.g. Windows Setup CD or Knoppix then my best advice would be to test with a new hard disk drive and try installing your operating system onto a new hard drive.
