It sounds like they formatted the drive before they gave it to you, which is reasonable if you recieved it from a company.

You will need to purchase a copy of windows, or find a free alternative like Linux (Ubuntu)

If they are nice past employers, you may be able to ask them a copy of the OS licensed to that machine. Usually if you look on the bottom, there will be a microsoft sticker with a CD key and the version of windows that came with it.

Apparently the IT department has deleted the software from the laptop.
you need to purchase operting syste; Windows Xp or Vista.
appication software; Microsoft office 2003, or 2007
and any other software you will need.
then insert the CD in the CD drive turn on the laptop and follow the on screen instructions.

I got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Thanks for using Fixya

Every time the system is turned on it says Non-system disk or disk error, replace and strick any key when ready. There are no disk in the disk drive or the sd drive. No matter how many keys you strike...


Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* bootable files on a USB memory-stick or SD memory-card
* from 3.5-inch diskette drive (if installed)
* from CD/DVD disk
* from your disk-drive

Your computer tried to boot from your disk-drive, but FAILED to do so.

Since the disk-drive is "dead", it tries to boot from any of the other devices,
and displays that error-message when it cannot boot.

So, your disk-drive has "died". Ouch!

You need to purchase a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows onto it.
