Question about PC Laptops
Laptop hp pavilion n5350 pentium 111---all of a sudden the operation system not found note comes up..I cannot get into anything else no matter what I do. If I do contrl/alt delete and hit escape it takes me to a boot up sequences..non that works..then it takes me to a setup which asks for a pass word...
I had to use the recovery console on the xp disk to run "fixmbr" to fix my corrupted master boot record. the mbr is the file that tells the computer where the rest of the instructions are. without the mbr, it doesn't know where to go for the next instruction, which would be from your operating system.
there is another option which fixes faulty bootup instructions.
hope that helps.

Ok so u need a passowrd to accsess the bios, not good if u dont have the password , just a quick note you dont have a floppy or cd inserted ? that can cause this problem , the laptop may have been bumbed alittle to hard and damaged the hard drive , can also be caused from not shutting the laptop down properly , you may need to reinstall xp , you can also try removing the hard drive and putting it back in nice and secure , the hard drive slot will be located at the bottom of the laptop or on the side,
