When i start my computer a message came that 'disk


No your operating sytem or boot files have a problem. Something is missing or corrupt in the operating system or boot files.

Try the steps below.

You will need a operating system disk or a repair disk to fix it. Insert it in the drive then boot from it. You want to get to a dos command prompt (black screen with white lettering) and type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

Reboot and see if the problem is solved. If not get back to the dos command prompt and run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I HAVE DEMO VERSION FOR ONE MONTHSOF VISTA HOME BASIC NOW MY LAPTOP NOT STARTING IT REQUIRED PRODUCT KEY


The demo version was set to expire quite some time ago... Either format the system installing a new operating system or buy a registration key for Windows Vista. If you've got it, I would install Windows XP Professional (SP3 is preferred). If you do not currently have an operating installer disk, you can download some free ones such as these:

Linux Mint
Ubuntu
Fedora

As mentioned, they are completely free and do not require you to register them. To install them you will need to have a CD (or CD/DVD) burner. Afterward download the .iso image to the computer with the CD/DVD burner. Then use a program such as ImgBurn to burn the image to the disk. Once done, stick the disk into the CD/DVD drive of the computer with the Vista installation. Then start the computer and use the boot option to boot from the CD/DVD disk (Generally a message during startup will read similar to "Press F12 for boot options." Press the key associated with the message continually (in this case, F12) to bring up the boot selection screen). Sometimes you will be asked to press any key to continue booting from the CD. As it said, press any key and you will boot from the CD.

Hopefully you will be able to resolve your problem. Just remember, installing a new operating system will erase ALL data on the hard-drive. So if you have precious files on the hard-drive, I would not recommend installing a new operating system.

Let us know how things turn out, or if you require any further assistance.

Sysem will not remoot fast and properly


It sounds like you are having a hard drive failure.

The message your getting is not asking for the motherboard disk, it is asking for an operating system disk.

I don't understand how the computer ever get's to the Net if it can't get past asking for a system disk.

Please provide further information, such as operating system, how old the computer and hard drive are, and a more clear description of what the system is, or is not, doing.

Anything like this: HARDWARE: CPU: Intel (MR) Pentium MMX 163 MHz RAM: 80 GB HD: Original 3 GB (Rest in peace) Now 20 GB CD: 16x reader Modem: Lucent 56K Video: CHIPS 68544 Sound ESS 1688 I/O PS/2 mouse/keyboard port I imagine you have the original HD:3GB do you notice they put down (rest in peace) I think thats what happened to yours it ceased and the laptop is asking for an OS which should have been on that disk but its stuffed. Try and see if you can get the new one of 20GB theyre easy to replace.
