When you reboot, can you access the Restore/Recovery software? You didn't post the Make, Model of laptop or the OS you are using. It may be the HDD is bad, remove and test replace if necessary.

SOURCE: missing operating system

your operating system might not been detected by your computer. you should try reinstalling it. If you have Windows XP Installed you should use a bootable Windows XP System Disk, and check if it can still be detected by the System Disk, if not then unfortunately you have to install again your operating system.

SOURCE: it says missing operating system

You have a crash on your hands. Try removing the hdd and ram - cleaning the ends or terminals on the pieces you CAREFULLY remove and then place them back into the PC. First remove and clean the HDD - then remove the RAM - - if you have more than on 'stick' of ram - pull them both - clean them both then STOP. Put just ONE stick of ram in the machine and try to start it - if it doesn't start remove that stick of ram and try the other. If the Laptop comes on then try the other stick. Pay attention because if one is bad it will stop the pc from working. Sadly it sounds like you will need to either repair or reinstall the Operating system. However there are things you can do to find out what you must do. Try these things and let me know how it works out.

Having had my sons laptop crash with the message bootmng missing he installed windows vista for a medion laptop on his toshiba C650 laptop but now i have read that we could have it with original software...


if you have the windows vista dvd then put it in, boot from it but when it comes to install step , check for the REPAIR SYSTEM option at the bottom,
select that option and choose -> startup repair.
follow onscreen steps and wait for system reboot.
if everything goes fine it will start but if this doesn't work then you'll be needed to reinstall the whole OS..

As soon as turn computer on it says operating system not found -- i can get it to go to one other thing and it ask for HDD user password which i have no earthly idea what it can be


1. i hope you have backed up of all your data from the HDD.
2. format the HDD and reload the OS - but this time, make sure that you have atleast 2 partitions.
3. keep all your important in the second (non-system) partition.
4.after you have reloaded the OS, please get a good anti-virus and anti-spyware application and scan your computer regularly with them.

Your operating system is corupted. you need to install a new one.
Your computer has the right specifications for vista though i would recommend Windows 7.
It is a much better Operating system

I have windows vista on my laptop and lexmark x74-75 wont print


You need the Make and Model Number of the printer. Chances are that you need to install the required drivers for it. I know that Vista says it grabs them BUT, it may be missing a bit. The best way is to get the driver package from the Manufacturer's Website and install those for your CURRENT Operating System to insure that you have the Latest Versions.

If you need more help, let me know.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.
