Question about HP Compaq 6735s Notebook
My laptop come up with "non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready" it will have a black screen and will not let me go on the computer someone please help my computer is the hp Compaq 6735s notebook
Sounds to me like the hard drive has gone out on it.
If you turn the laptop over you will see a couple panels that can be removed... There will be one that has what looks like a circle type design by it that indicates hard drive access... If you cannot find this icon its not a big deal as the screws are just phillip head screws..
1. Remove panels
2. Verify Hard Drive is seated properly. (Might disconnect then reconnect to make sure)
3. If you can tell the make and model of hard drive this would be a good time to write it down. (I.E. Toshiba, Western Digital, Seagate)
4. Replace panel
Try booting the computer again. If the problem continues then you need to online and do a google search for hard drive diagnostic bootable disc for your hard drive. Most of these programs are universal and can do a cross platform basic checks on hard drives.
To go into more detailed diagnostic you are best to use the software designed by the maker of the hard drive.
1. Download test disc and burn
2. Boot laptop from cd-rom using bootable test disc
3. Run diagnostics.
If it fails then you have a bad hard drive and you will need to replace the drive.

This sometimes comes up if you have a disc in the cd drive or a USB drive attached.
If this is not the case, your OS is damaged and you can try a system restore / recovery, you may have these options if you can get the F8 menu to come up while booting.
If you have a windows disc you could try a repair installation, if not google "fix MBR"

SOURCE: Laptop when turned on is
This usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.
