Drive is not seated properly ,OS not installed correctly or boot sector damaged.Getting the T20 HDD istalled can be tricky if any of the pins are slightly bent .
These can all be repaired,unfortunately the actual HDD connecter on the board may be damaged as sometimes happens &really means the end for your laptop

Operating system not found


there is problem with your hard disk. your hard disk wire may be loose. try to remove and refix all sata wires of your hard disk. "operating system not found" message may be coming because you may have not installed any os (windows, linux or mac) in your notebook. try to install operating to system to fix this. there may also be proble with your hard disk, your hard disk may be dead. if your notebook is showing message "operating system not found" without any reason then you may have put your notebook in high magnetic field area. due to high magnetic field, sometimes hard disk's are formatted automatically.

Hello, I have a problem with my computer, I think all started with a virus when downloading a program to diagnose the pc or a driver for the modem, try removing the virus with several antivirus with no...


I think you just erased your hardrive. (Or it wouldn't show the Operating system not found message).
That means your data is already lost. (Unless you have 2 harddrives in your pc)

Get a Windows Installer CD from a trusted source. ( Maybe the local computer store can lend you one)
Test this cd on another pc (By just booting the cd , not by running the installer!)

Install Windows using this cd (Start it using F12 like you said)

Hard disk formetting


hi,

I think low level formatting should do the trick. you can download it and its free. In your case try to download the DOS based version. This type of formatting erases the entire disk clean.

Operating system not found media test failure will not reboot aspire 3680


Installing an operating system from one computer and inserting it into another computer will not work specially when they are from different manufacturers because the components in them are different.
The Windows install has to be done on the intended computer.
The media test failure error message refers to a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.

Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer


Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.
