My laptop is saying that their is no operating system not found what do i do to fix this problem i have a sylvania 8.9 lcd m 512mb and a 160gb hdd


check the bios whether the HDD is dectected (you can the get the bios by tapping F1 in XP and F10-in Vista and windows 7) if the hdd is dectected perform a smart short test (click on ur harddrive-smart support-smart short test )-----If the harddrive passes the test

-then try hitting ESC while boot up select the hdd to boot check if that works

if that doesnt work then you need to run the the operating system disc

Hi this is what i get when you turn on the PC takes a few seconds and shuts down the PC. "SMART Faulure Predikted on Hard Disk 4 : WDC WD3200BEVT-222CTO-(S1) WARNING. IMMidietly back-up your data...


SMART is to measure your Hard Disk Drive health. This warning tells you to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD. If the computer can no longer boot into Windows, connect the HDD to another PC or you can also get one of those HDD enclosures which will let you connect the HDD to other PC's through USB connection so you can backup your files.

Hope this help, goodluck!

Acer Aspire 5100: SMART Failure on Hard Disk 4


Hello there,

As per experience, SMART Utility will check your HDD for any errors that may occur.

I backed up everything and replaced a new HDD and got rid of the error.

Opened up the problematic HDD and noticed a very light scratch on its "platters".

As for me. Never ignore this warning before something might happen to your HDD and lost important data.

In the boot sequence it says SMART failure.......... backup ur HDD it may crash anytime.............. press F1 to continue........ but in the bios option hdd compability test result shows hdd is ok.... pls...


The compatibilty test doesn't check the drive operating parameters that SMART monitoring does. It's just verifying that the drive will work with the BIOS. SMART checks various drive paramaters while the drive is in use and warns you when something is enough out of tolerance that it may be heading for a failure. Best you back up your data like it says. Even if it's a false alarm, backing up is a good idea anyway.

Hard drive controller


These can be fun and Hdd/IDE/SATA Controllers on Desktops are different than laptops.. Embedded controller chips as well as the Northbridge/Southbridge chips are integrated to everything else and its a nightmare to track down period. (Ive had to replace Integrated Modem chips to cure a Boot or BSOD error that states the Video Adapter needs to be changed) ..(Generally due to Power surge or other).. You are on the right track however and I'd just suggest running Memtest of the Knoppix to start be4 I can say other. Is there Shared or dedicated RAM for the GPU on this one? They manned both ways depending on the specific board revision..

Talk soon, Ken
