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.

    The disk you describe is a standard size and should be available anywhere disks are sold. There is nothing special about it. Just make sure that you purchase an IDE drive not SATA.

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 got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Thanks for using Fixya

Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


Hello Sir.

Please check that your cd or dvd drive does not contain any disks when attempting to boot.
This can sometimes cause boot problems. The other problem you may be experiencing is hard drive failure. This can be caused by the hard drive loosing its configuration from wear or failure. Perhaps you have an extra hard drive laying around you can test to see if you get same error.
Thanks And GOOD LUCK!

I have evo n610c laptop but when ever i turn on the laptop itgives a messege that non disk system or disk error with some sort of noice coming from hard drive


This error message could be caused by the laptop not detecting the hard drive.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard disk
If not the hard disk may be faulty or needs reseating. If the hard disk is faulty it needs to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk.
A virus program may have infected the computer and removed or changed some system files - in this case Windows needs to be repaired OR Windows re-installed - this is the best option.

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


Stop the laptop,remove the battery, remove the hard disk and put the jumper located at the rear of your hard disk unit in the CS pins. Then return the hard disk to your laptop and the battery. Start the laptop, go directly to the BIOS and set the following boot order: 1-CD, 2-HD, the rest disabled.  That should be enough.

Compaq evo n800v saying non system disc or disc error


You need to check in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is being detected. Other than that, do you have like a flash disk or a media card attached to it when booting up?

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
