Operating system not found


It seems that either the OS is corrupt on your system or the Hard Disk Drive is not getting detected.

To confirm if the hard disk drive is detected you need to go into the BIOS and check if it shows the Drive present.

Just check if the Drive is present in BIOS. If you find the Drive in BIOS You can try to re-install the Operating system using the OS disk.

For any clarification or assistance feel to revert

Emachine E528 Laptop is saying a disk read error occured push ctrl+alt+delete an it will restart


The error that you are getting indicates that the system is not able to detect the Hard Drive. We would need to confirm if the Hard Drive is detected in the system BIOS or not. For that we would need to turn off the computer. Turn on the computer and start hitting F2 key to reach BIOS. On the First page of BIOS it should show you the Hard Disk Drive with name and Number. If it shows all drives and none or not detected then it means the hard drive is not getting detected by the system. If you can open the Laptop and reach the Hard Disk Drive you can try to re-seat it to see if it gets detected. If it still remains undetected, Its time to replace the Hard Disk Drive.

Please try the above steps and get back for any further assistance or clarification

I lost power at my house and when the powr came back on my hard drive won't turn back on


how do you know that your hard disk is not turning on? Get the message displayed on the screen when you turn on your desktop first, if it says "boot device failed" or something like that (depends on motherboard model, company and bios version) , check your hard disk is detected or not by bios if not so, open your desktop cup's cover were something made with plastic or rubber on you hand and touch hard disk to see if it is running while pc is on (if running, you will feel something moving inside). If hard disk is detected by bios then it's a case of damaged operating system, just recover or re install operating system. This kind of problem happens for bad sector of hard disk caused by sudden power loss. If hard disk is not detected by bios or running, make sure machine is turned off first, just unplug the power cord of hard disk and plug it back then restart your machine to see if hard disk runs. If not so , go to some repairing shop to check your hard disk.

You may be able to purchase a system disk from Compaq, otherwise, try any generic XP disk. It won't have any Compaq drivers, but at least you can reformat the C: drive and get XP on it.

I cannot get my gateway gt5028 to reboot,, i have no disc,, people tell me yiu can reboot and get computer back to normal without one,, help!!


there are 2 things about reboot that is the reboot from the bios or reboot from the windows... if you mean you can't reboot and there are no hard disk as your primary hard disk try to check if the bios detected the hard disk. by pressing Delete key when you start to reboot the computer... make sure there are someone with you who knows something about the computer BIOS. if not keep in touch.. in Main menu in BIOS you will find If the computer detected the hard disk, if not detected try to check the IDE/SATA cable or Power Cable of your hard disk. Check if that hard disk is the first boot in the Boot section of the BIOS, if not then change the Hard Disk as your first boot.. That will help you boot your computer properly in windows..
