Question about Computers & Internet
That error means either your hard has failed, has bad sectors or the operating system has corruption. Worst case you will need to replace the hard drive and re-install everything. Best case you will need to re-install everything again. You could try and run a program called Sea Tools to attempt and repair bad sectors on the drive.

do you have a floppy disk in it? or is it set to boot from the cd drive, with a non-bootable os disk in it?
those errors usually happen when you computer does not find a os system in the device it is set to boot from. Try setting it to boot from the hard drive.

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.

Turn it all the off. Then pull the hard drive out and put it back in again. Now, put your system disk (Win XP?) into the drive and turn the laptop on. It should do something else now. I have had this happen on several laptops I have rebuilt and it takes patience to get them started sometimes.... I have managed to load XP onto all of them eventually!
Hope this helps
