When you power up the computer press F1 ore F2 or "del" key toenter in bios then check your hardisk is detected or not.
If not then if you have desktop open cpu cabinet then reconnect power cable and ide or sata cable to harddisk also check your harddisk is set to master.

Operating system not found


hi goodner,

getting the error "operating system not found" means that the hard drive where the Operating System is installed (i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7), Cannot be found by you BIOS upon the boot sequence.

When you turn the PC/Laptop, you normal see a screen that flashes flashes with screen that displays the ff:

Primary Master:
Primary Slave:
Secondary Master:
Secondary Slave:

The Primary master should have a value right next to it. If not, either the hard drive is faulty and needs replacement, cable is loose,

If you have a value to it and stil gets the same error the operating is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

Xps M1530 error code 2000-0322


If you want to know what this is the error code is related to

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management then select event viewer this may vary depending on what operating system you have extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occured or click start type in event viewer press ENTER you might be able work your way through the problem

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector. Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps

My screen is black with white writing, says operating system not found


Hello.

Usually that error means that there is a problem with your Windows operating system or your hard drive is faulty.

First, try to access the recovery partition. Boot your computer and press the Alt and F10 keys together repeatedly. Choose and go through the recovery process. If it works, your operating system will be OK, but everything you installed and saved will be gone.

If no recovery, then reinstall the operating system with a Windows CD. If no CD or problems, occur, then your hard drive is probably faulty and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

When i start my pc,it displays operating system not found


Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is recognized in there. If it is then try restoring it with the recovery disks. If the error still comes up then that means the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced. Also if the hard drive is not recognized in the BIOS then that means the hard drive is still bad.
