Hello Mitchiko

This error message is often the result of corruption on your hard disk. Quite likely including the MBR.

This could indicate your hard disk is failing or just that there was a glitch in your system that caused your MBR to be over-written or corrupted. In any event, w/ an error like this, you're going to need to ...
(01) Test your hard disk to make sure it's OK
(02) Attempt to restore your MBR

There are some great (free) MBR tools HERE.

There's a nice article HERE on "How to Repair your MBR". The author does a nice job of explaining what the MBR is and how to repair it.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc. on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

Boot up to BIOS setup and make sure your Notebook starts with CD/DVD ROM first.

SOURCE: Non-system disk or disk error reapl......ENEY

means that it cannot read any information from the first boot device.
normally your hard disk..
however if you have plugged anything in like a penstick maybe, then it tries to boot from that.. so check you simply have not left a penstick or usb device with memory in (mobile phone). in the good old days it was usually somone had left a floppy disk in the drive...but I assume you have not got one of these in it???
if thats ruled out and thats your error. go into the bios (F2) I think but it tells you when you first switch on press [whatever] to enter setup...whatever it is press it.
look for the menu that tells you about your hard disk...MAIN
should look something like this 2pagescouk.jpg

ignore the red square
but see where it says 1st drive and then a model number...check that there is a model number there if not, theres probably something serious wrong with your Hard disk take it to a repairer or if your confident replace yourself and reinstall windows and all your drivers...plus you have probably lost all the data on there...hope you made backups
if there is a model number there, odds are the Operating system is corrupted, a repairer may be able to save your data (documents pictures) and reinstall OS or repair it. but thats not guaranteed.

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 visualise this msg on pc 'non disk system error or disk error'


This error is caused by the boot device (hard drive, DVD, etc) not having the required Operating System files. You may need to find a different Boot Device, like maybe a DVD, with the boot files on it. Boot from DVD and reinstall HD files.

Non system disk or disk error


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.
