No OS found on disk

Make sure no other disks are plugged in (USB/CD/DVD), check BIOS for Boot Order, ensure your hard disk is 1st in order. If it still doesn't find the OS then you may have corrupted data, and potentially a defective disk. You can visit the hard disk manufacturer for a test utility for your hard disk and boot from it and scan the drive. It may even fix some errors.
You may also need to boot from an OS disk and select recovery console and run chkdisk /r on your main drive.

I forgot my user password and have the disk to reset password but need to boot from disk and dont know how

You have to configure your BIOS settings for that. Restart your computer and hold down a special key on your keyboard it's usally f1, f2, del or the esc key. Then you will see the BIOS settings. Now try to find the settings for Boot order and put the disk drive as the first choice.

Got message 10008 replace hard disk.

Your computer's motherboard has queried the disk-drive in your computer as to the "health" of the disk-drive, and the disk-drive is detecting that it is about to FAIL. So, ASAP, copy all your files to an external disk-drive, before the disk-drive DOES fail.

Buy a new disk-drive, attach it, and use something like NORTON GHOST or SYMANTEC PARTITION MAGIC to "clone" your old disk to the new disk-drive.

Then, disconnect and remove the old hard-drive.

Missing recovery disk for Composer 5100

The recovery disk is usually stored as a separate partition on the hard disk itself (Mostly in cases of laptop disks), so when ever you purchase laptops with pre-installed Operating System, The very first thing you do is create a CD/DVD recovery disk ie burn the recovery partition on the CD/DVD.
so that you can use the same DVD in case the OS crashes.
In your case as your hard disk was crashed and replaced ask the people from where you purchased the laptop/pc to restore it to the new hard disk, or purchase the Operating System.

hope this clears the doubt

Hard disk formetting


I think low level formatting should do the trick. you can download it and its free. In your case try to download the DOS based version. This type of formatting erases the entire disk clean.

Bad sectors

Use the following link to download the software, which helps u to detect as well as completly remove badsectors, but before u do tat, here is the answer for wat is bad sectors..

Hard disk drive is an integral part of every computer. It stores all your information. One of the most prevalent defects of hard drives is bad sectors on the disk surface. Bad sectors are a part of the disk surface which contains not readable, but frequently necessary information. As a result of bad sectors you may have difficulties to read and copy data from your disk, your operating system becomes unstable and finally your computer may unable to boot altogether.

When a hard drive is damaged with bad sectors, the disk not only becomes unfit for use, but also you risk losing information stored on it. The HDD Regenerator can repair damaged hard disks without affecting or changing existing data. As a result, previously unreadable and inaccessible information is restored.

ths is the software

A powerful hard disk tool that can detect and repair physical bad sectors on a hard disk drive surface and regenerate hard disk.
