Computer loads operating syatem not found

When i start my compaq presario f700 it loads to the presario screen while a buzzing sound(sounds like a busy tone) then it loads on a black screen operating system not found. The only other screen i can access is the bios utility screen. When i try a hard disk self test it states there is no ide device. I cannot change the order of the boot devices. I do not have the recovery disks as well. Is there anything i can do?

Check HDD power and IDE cable carefully. Better replace them. Open BIOS. Do you see your HDD on BIOS ? Do you hear any sound from your HDD ? Do your HDD produce some heat ? If no, replace your HDD with new one. If yes you need to repair your BOOT file and MBR. Do you have any XP installation CD ? If not collect now. If yes, boot from CD. follow instruction and press 'R' to enter recovery console. Give password , leave blank if none. Select os by pressing 1 (in single boot). Now in command prompt type this two command one by one "fixboot" and "fixmbr" without quote. Type y to if required. Than type exit to exit recovery console.
If this does not solve the problem, you must give a fresh OS install. Keep informing.

My Compaq Presario F700 dropped approximately 2 feet to the floor from on top of a suitcase at the airport. It was in a case, but not a thickly padded one. When I tried to use the laptop after the fall,...


Try reseating the hard drive and the RAM modules, the fall may have slightly loosen these components.
The error message "Operating System not found" means the laptop could not find the hard disk, this problem could be the hard drive needs reseating, a faulty hard drive (they don't like being dropped), or a faulty disk controller.
