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.

Non system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready...when I run my windows xp disk it then tells me that they cant find my hard drive. Where would the hard drive be on a Compaq Evo N600c?...


Yes. Your laptop is far worth fixing. If you can do it yourself, open the back cover where your hard drive exists to make sure it did not get out of position (Probably due to shock during travel)

Then using a windows xp installation cd, run the laptop from the cd and when the setup screen reaches the point of "pressing enter to continue installation, or "C" for a recovery, pre C to go to the DOS prompt screen. On that screen, use the command >CHKDSK and press enter..

It should detect to disk and fix it for you. If it wont detect the disk, then probably you damaged it and need to replace it. You will have to go to a store to purchase one.

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.
