Operating system not found


It seems that either the OS is corrupt on your system or the Hard Disk Drive is not getting detected.

To confirm if the hard disk drive is detected you need to go into the BIOS and check if it shows the Drive present.

Just check if the Drive is present in BIOS. If you find the Drive in BIOS You can try to re-install the Operating system using the OS disk.

For any clarification or assistance feel to revert

The problem seems to be in your cds. In this case, especially if the product is still in warranty, you can ask from Sony website if they will send you a new set of cds.

My Sony Vaio Laptop (Model VPCEE42FX) isnt working, it turns on, but then it says "Operating System Not Found." Can you help me ?


The laptop cannot find the Operating system which is installed on your hard disk drive. Go into the BIOS (setup menu) and see if the hard disk drive is present. If it is then your might need to reload the OS ( operating system software,i.e. Winodws Vista, Windows 7 ). If the BIOS does not detect your hard drive then either your hard drive is defective or the motherboard has a problem.

When i boot up its telling me no operating system. Is there a recovery file i can download to fix the problem.thanks


Hi,

You need to access the bios to see if the hard drive has been recognized by the laptop.

Press either F1 or F2 to access the bios.

If the hard drive is not listed on the general page then this is the reason that it says no operating system found.

If it is there then chances are you have had a Win32 virus on the computer which has wiped the boot files.

This means that you willhave to use your recovery disk to recover the operating system.


Regards.

I keep getting this message when i power on my VAIO. "Operating system not found" ? Any help pls will be greatly appreciated


Make sure nothing is plugged in / or in the DVD drive like memory stick / DVD / CD etc.

Retry. if still no go,

Start up in safe mode and see if it starts that way.If it boots into BIOS see if drive is listed.

If still no go a failed HDD is indicated.

Hi dinesh_srika,
If the Hard Drive is not detected in the BIOS, there may be some Hardware related issues with the Hard Drive. So it is better to repair the Computer at service Center to identify the exact issue and fixit.

OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND....NO ACCESS TO CD DRIVE


Connect your external CDROM to the laptop. I think it is a USB CDROM. Enter your bios setup. In the boot device section, try to find any option which says First Boot Device -> USB CDROM. If you can set this things then the computer will be able to boot from your external cdrom.
