    All depends on what laptop you have. Look on the bottom of the case, there will be a model number, give that number please.

Operating system not found HP Pavilion dv2-1039wm

The operating system is stored on the hard drive. If the BIOS can't find the O/S then the hard drive is damaged or the windows installation is corrupted. Boot to the BIOS screen and see if you can see the hardrive listed on the information tab. If you can see the drive, you either have bad sectors on the hard drive or a corrupted boot file. You can insert your windows disc and start the machine. Click install now, choose language and on the next screen click 'repair computer'. Choose 'startup repair' this will rewrite the windows boot files.

I have a problem with hp dv9000.. the operating system wont boot.. even wen i insert any booting disk, it shows the first screen with hp and its logo and then it becomes blank.. i presume my harddisk is...

Try going to the bios and reset the bios to load factory defaults and then reboot. If the same thing happens try taking the hard drive out and reboot, if the same thing happens again its not your hardrive because it would say no boot disk after post. Iam guesing it may be a bios fault because after the logo it goes blank not while loading the os(operating system).

Give this a try and post back your findings.

Hi my hp g6000 wont boot it comes on fan runs hard drive and cd kick in but no screen then the laptop reboots and just does this loop

When your system begins to come alive, press Esc or F8 to get to a BIOS Menuscreen. In there, look for Boot. Move the CD/DVD option to the top so that your computer will look for a cd to boot from. Hit F10 to save and exit. Put a bootable CD in the drive and let your computer boot from it. Once it's up, look to see if you see your harrdrive C:. If not, the problem is probably the boot sector on your hardrive has gone bad. Look at this site (it's legit) for bootable CDs and other help.

Mx6128 gatway hard drive

The smallest hard drive that can be purchased is approx. 100Gb. You need a Windows installation CD, and provided you have the product installation code (it should be on a Windows label on the bottom of the laptop) installation is fairly straight forward. You may be able to get a Windows CD from a computer shop, they may install Windows for you at a cost. You need to download the device drivers for the laptop from the Gateway WEB site.

My HP Pavilion laptop will not boot.

Usually the message about low virtual memory is because there isn't enough RAM and it was using up all the designated space on the hard drive as Virtual memory. (Uses a part of the hard drive like RAM)

That shouldn't account for being unable to boot into any Windows options though.

The one trick with HP computers, you can try is to take the battery out, make sure the Laptop isn't plugged in with an AC adapter then press and hold the power button in for 10 seconds with no power going to the laptop. This is doing a power drain. Then put the battery back in and try to power on and boot up the computer.

When you choose safe mode, does the computer ask which operating system you want to boot into and does it give you the option to choose "Recovery Console"? Or is there an option on the screen with the safe mode options to Choose your Operating System? If not then the recovery console wasn't installed. If you can choose the recovery console, you might be able to replace the failed files that are not allowing the computer to boot into any version of Windows. Unfortunately, the computer isn't reporting which files are the problem, winlogon.exe/userinit.exe/etc.

You can get a hardrive enclosure at a computer store that allows you to put the laptop hard drive in the enclosure, then plug the enclosure into another computer with a USB cable then you can copy the sensitive data onto the other computer.

If you aren't comfortable taking the Hard Drive out yourself, you can take the laptop to a computer store, and they will take the Hard Drive and hook it up to a second computer as a Slave (Secondary Hard Drive) and copy the data over for you

Black Screen

try hooking up an external video source. Check to see if the computer is actually booting up. if the computer boots up, then the LCD invertor or Backlight of the screen is bad, need to be replaced.

If the computer does not boot up after hooking up an external video source, then most likely your motherboard is bad!

need to be replaced.
