    I don't have the operating system disk. The HDD is showing in bios.
    Do you think the hard drive is toast? Is it worth it to buy a new hard drive and new operating system? I was quoted 85 + 95 +25 by the company. Not sure if I am better off getting another?

The good: Affordable; great battery life; impact protection; spill-proof keyboard; magnesium-alloy frame. The bad: Still no flash card reader; heavy; no double-layer DVD+R support. The bottom line: The Durabook will surely appeal to those who need a rugged notebook to withstand the elements outdoors.


Make sure the HDD is showing in the BIOS, you may have to instal an OS

The error msg could be something as simple as corrupted boot sector or corrupted filesystem, or it could mean the hdd is dead. Do you have any way to connect that hdd to another system as an external drive and see if you view files on it? If you can, you may be able to fix it, if you can't see files on it, try formatting it. If it formats successfully, then it's probably good. It's worth buying a copy of the OS or using a free OS like linux to get it functional but considering that it's a 4 year old machine, I wouldn't spend more than about $200 on it.

In the bios be sure the boot sequence starts with the hard drive, and that the hard drive is recognized by the bios, if both of these are true than you may need to re install windows.

REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE OR INSERT BOOT MEDIA IN SELE


1, to open your cd drive manually, get a tooth pick, look closely onto your cd drive i mean where the cd comes out from when ejected, you will see a very tiny hole put the tooth pick inside the hole push it in a bit hard then bring out if it does not try a tinier object it will come out.

2, if the system was on when u disconnected the belt it might have burnt the hdd or has caused error on the hdd, off the computer and reboot if no solution, reformatt the system if it does not work, get a new hdd. thanks

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
