Get a Operating system and load it onto it.

It looks like the hard disk has been wiped or formatted and there is no operating system installed and therefore cannot boot up.
You need to obtain a Windows installation XP or Vista CD with a product code to install Windows.
On the bottom of the laptop there will be a Windows label with a product installation code, provided it has not been removed. If it is still there you can use this to install Windows, make sure it is XP or Vista version CD, it must match the Windows version printed on the label.

The specific product you're inquiring about is not showing in your post. Name the make and model first, then we'll look for the manual. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it at the manufacturer's support site or these guys...

Venturer pvs62911 says invalid disk


Hi--The only repair I know is to get alcohol(91%). Dose q-tip and clean lazer. Then use other end and clean(lightly). Wait 10 minutes and try. If it dosn't work after two times it probably will not work. The headphones and remote will not make any difference.

Error on windows load


[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
This is what the boot.ini file should look like. Use U'r recovery disk to create or edit the ini file as above. U cannot use DOS 6.22 to create this file if U'r system is formated in NTFS.
If U don't have a recovery disk, make one from someone else's XP computer (DOS 7.xx).

Invalid system disk--dell latitude 6600


A few possibilties on this:
1. Check to make sure both the floppy and CD drive do not have any media in it.
2. This is a used computer and its hard drive was erased to protect old info from being seen. If this is true, you will need to get an operating cd disk (ie. windows XP, windows vista, etc) and boot up from that drive. Follow the instructions from there.
3. Hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.
