Compaq presario 2594 us laptop , after boot-up get message ( operating system not found) tried recovery disc, will not formate hdd , will get this message in windows set-up , SET-UP...


I've gist had the same problem after flashing bios ...
go to BIOS and change the SATA mode to IDE. it worked for me.
original instructions:
also You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network.
PLUS it seems if only 128 MB is showing as memory then the memory sticks might be damaged and not able to retain information/data to complete the installation process. Best take them out clean it properly & replace & try again. Nothing to do with BIOS!

Can you give me any tips on how to start up my computer when it's saying operating system not found?


  1. Check the system setup, see if the hard disk drive is seen and identified in the bios. If not, reset defaults and see if it ID's
  2. Reseat the HDD, if #1 doesn't work
  3. If the HDD is seen, and Identified, but the system will not boot, then there may be a HDD problem. Run diags on the HDD< see of you get a failure. If you do, replace the HDD.
  4. If the drive passes diagnostics, then try booting to your Windows CD, press R for Recovery console (If XP, Choose Repair my Computer for Vista/7) run the command CHKDSK /R if XP
If that fails, then try a repair install of Windows, info can be found here:

OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND MESSAGE


HI,
This can be an issue with the hard drive..

Go to bios by tapping F10 while the system boots > go to diagnostics and select hdd self test.

If it given an error "No IDE device found" then try reseating the hard drive. i.e. take it out and put it back in.

Otherwise try changing the boot order by going to advance / system configuration > select boot order > select the hdd and pess F6 till it goes to the top. Press F10 to save and exit.

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Anup

My HP Compaq Presario v2000 has new mobo, new CPU


You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.

Boot into Setup and run the TOOLS / PRIMARY HDD TEST / SHORT TEST.

If it fails, try another HDD.

If OK, verify Boot Order is Floppy, CD-ROM, HDD. Exit Setup.

Print Table 1 Low Level Format instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106419

Boot with a DOS disk that contains Debug. Run the Table 1 script. Turn V5000 Off.

Boot with the HP Operating System CD. XP install should now proceed normally.

Good luck.

Compaq presario not working


This generally indicates hard drive failure. Try reinstalling your operating system, if you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive will need to be replaced.

Hi,
what you need to do, is go into the Bios. usually F2 at setup.
Or esc or delete. you have to press a few times at bootup.
Once in the bios screen, find the page where you can change the boot sequence. it,s probably set to boot from HDD( hard disk ) set it to boot from CD/DVD first then FDD Or HDD second.
when you save and exit, it will boot from the dvd drive, this will give you access, to use the cd drive first.
then re-install your operating system.
