Re: Operating System

1.Check your BIOS and make sure the drive is detected..
2.The problem is your computer is trying to boot from something other than the hard drive with the OS on it.
Remove any thumbdrives if you have any in.Check the floppy drive (if you have one in the computer) to see if there is a disk in there. Sometimes, the computer tries to boot off a floppy if there is one in the drive
3.Your hard drive probably crashed.
You will most likely need a new hard drive.

What is the operating machine ?

If you mean operating system then:

An operating system (OS) is a set of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs. The operating system is a vital component of the system software in a computer system. Application programs require an operating system to function.

Time-sharing operating systems schedule tasks for efficient use of the system and may also include accounting for cost allocation of processor time, mass storage, printing, and other resources.

For hardware functions such as input and output and memory allocation, the operating system acts as an intermediary between programs and the computer hardware, although the application code is usually executed directly by the hardware and will frequently make a system call to an OS function or be interrupted by it. Operating systems can be found on almost any device that contains a computer-from cellular phones and video game consoles to supercomputers and web servers.

Examples of popular modern operating systems include Android, BSD, iOS, GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, Windows Phone, and IBM z/OS. All these, except Windows and z/OS, share roots in UNIX.

Operating system not found

This is because the windows startup files are damaged / deleted. Please reboot your computer by inserting the windows 98 bootable disk into CD/DVD drive and selecting the option as "R" repair.

In short you will be fixing the master boot record (MBR) for the operating system.

Windows xp home addition V2002 SP2 gphone.exe not found

The very first thing we do is to solve your problem about the start-up error. For your information, your operating system was corrupt that is why there is prompt error message appear in the windows start-up. The best thing here to do is to start your computer in safe mode and this can be done by pressing F8 key until a operating system menu will appear. Select Safemode and wait until you get into the User Account Login screen. Enter to your account and then restore your computer to an earlier time. Go to All Programs - Accesories - System Tools - and then select System Restore.
But if this procedure failed, the only last thing should be done is to reinstall your computer operating system. Leave comments for further assistants. okay..

This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation

according to the statements which you have specified the computer says that the operating system you are using is not an original software and may be a pirated version.i can suggest you two things. if you have bought the operating system xp as an original one from a dealer contact the support of microsoft and sort your problem immediately. but if you have installed the operating system from a pirated version, enter a new volume license key and switch off windows update. you will be under risk if you are updating a pirated version of xp.thanks for using fixya!.please dont forget to rate my solution.
