I think my compaq presario desktop has crashed

The only message I can get to come up on my screen now is "no operating system found". It will not boot my Windows cd from the cd rom so that I can reformat my computer or anything. Is there anything I can do to retreive my information from my computer or am I out of luck?

I have seen this problem caused by a nearly dead CMOS battery. They are cheap, so replace it if in doubt.

The computer is not recognizing the contents of your hard drive. you'll need a floppy with command.com, iosys.com and sysinfo.com on it. when inserted into the drive cmos looks here first. if you can access the cmos, check the search parameters to see what the computer boot up sequence is. you may want to change it to recognize the cdrom first, then the hard drive, then the A drive. I had a compaq armada that gave me the same message but I was able to reformat the drive off DOS 6.2 and changed the boot up sequence.

My pc will not boot saying "setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration. . .


I think you may have left the operating system cd in the cd drive - this message appears when your pc boots the cd before it installs the operating system. So check your cd drive and remove any disks

The computer comes on and will not go past the compaq screen where you have the options to go into the boot menu

Win 95 crashed and non operating system found when rebooting how can i fix


Hi, Sorry to tell you, but you will need to reinstall the operating system. its as easy as placing a 95 CD into the drive and let it run following all instructions, but of course if you are no the techie type its best to let some who knows exactly what they are doing look at it for you. If you don't have a windows 95 boot disk try this website for diskette or type of boot disk.

I need to know how to instal the operating system on my Compaq presario 5000. It says no operating system found, & i don't remember how to instal one. can someone please help me out?


what operating system are you trying to install.
If windows. You need the disk. Then when you switch on the computer you hold f12 or f8.(should display on the bottom of sreen)this will take you into the bios. you need to change boot order to boot from disk. Then you have to format hard drive etc. this can be quite tricky to explain. From this point i think your best option at the minute is to type what operating system you are installing into youtube. theres tons of people showing you how to install operating systems

your operating system wasn't found because kill disk wipes your hard drive clean.
You have to re-install your operating system, all the drivers, and any programs that you might want in your computer.
Boot into the BIOS (tapping the delete key during initial boot-up should get you there, or follow any instructions on the bottom of your POST screen to get into "set-up") and make sure your DVD/CD drive is the first boot option, then put your operating system disc in the drive, and re-boot...the drive should read your CD, and boot from there.
