If the issue is getting the OS into the drive, see if you can access the BIOS and see if the hard drive can be detected. If it is not detected you may have a bad disk.

Purchased used harddrive,not working as it should.Seller says for me to format my computer as the harddrive is wiped.what do I do?


i am not sure if this is a Mac or a pc. On the pic make sure bios detects the hard drive first. When you press the power switch keep tapping tab and it will give u the command to get in the bios. Next if you do not have Windows installed u could make a boot cd or usb drive and load the os. Within the is setup it should detect the drive delete the partitions if any and create new ones in the filesystem you want and it should install.

Bought online...doesnt boot all the way up say insert bootable disc...what does that mean and or what kind of disc do I need??? Aspire 5250-0639


sounds like the Hard drive doesnt have a operating system installed (seller may have wiped or replaced the harddrive), or the hard drive is damaged or missing(removed), - you would need a install dvd for windows or a bootable or installer dvd for linux . and replace the harddrive if it is damaged or missing

the Bootable disk its talking about
is its next attempt at starting a operating system from a cd,dvd or usb source after trying for a harddrive startup- but failing to find an operating system

Reformate the harddrive wipe clean


Formatting will not wipe the hard disk clean completely. If you do not intend to install Windows back on the hard disk then use this program -

Operating system not found !


Your harddrive has failed or your operating system has crashed.
You will have to either run a repair disc (windows 7 installation disc or whatever Operating system you had installed on it before) or get your hands on a new installation disc and install a new operating system. Either that or take it to a computer geek in order to have them reinstall the operating system for you and hopefully, recover all of your files.

Need to get a recovery disc or disc's for an HP Pavilion a414x, DESK TOP with windows xp. system #DT037A-ABA; ser.# MXK4090RMV. Bought this used, OS has been completely wiped out, have no recovery disc,...


If the Harddrive is wiped you will not be able to "Recover" anything. No operating system exists. You need a Windows Operating disk. You can buy an official one with the keys and everything anywhere u can buy PC software.

If you borrow a OS CD, do not expect it to work. You need valid keys. You have to bite the bullet on this one and buy the OS. You will also need to download and "properly" install the hardware drivers. This is not as simple as people think and if you think windows update will do a good job of installing the drivers...think again. 9 times out of ten...you will get a blue screen error if u let windows install graphic or other major drivers.

Installed windows xp disk with a scratch and now wont boot up


If you have the Windows Key/License for the XP disk you can use someone else's copy of the XP disk or call Microsoft and ask for a replacement. You need the license and it must not have been installed on another PC previously.
