Boot up problem

I have a 4 year old HP Pentium 950 series with MS XP -home OS. My computer will work for a while, boot up and all then it stops and when I try to boot up it gives a dos message that says "operating system not found." I have just looked into setup and the primary and slave are greyed out. My DVD doesn't play sound - it plays though. If my sound card is going out could it be affecting my boot up?
Help me! I don't want to buy another computer if I can get this one to work again. After it gives me the DOS message above, it might be 3 weeks, with constant trying to boot up - maybe 25 times or so, them viola! - it boots up. Thank you for your assistance.

HP Web OS not working in HP ProBook 4530s


came with, so is it still w7, not upgraded to w10 for free last year.?
I guess, it dont boot now? so you hit f11 and F11 is dead. sure.

you broke it. by doing partitioning wrong. yup, you're not the first
all mine are that why on purpose. (i run w10 + custom drivers)
Due to my actions many HP apps are dead, but I dont care.

so what is the cure, there are only these cures, now.
you deleted or corrupted the restore partitions.
you did NOT break BIOS, ESC , works as does F9 boot choices.!
as does, ESC the F1 info pages as does boot options all there. for sure its in ROM,you did NOT damage ROM, sorry, did not.
if BIOS is dead, maybe the coin cell battery is dead. after 5years easy.

  1. buy the HP media kits and reInstall w7, from HP, end story. (lots of OS to choose)
  2. buy MS windows, 10, and pray the drivers work, some won't ask. how to get working key drivers that fail.
  3. find some magic way to get BIOS to use wrong F11 partitions.?
  4. BOOT to CD and never use hDD again.
  5. boot to usb stick and never use HDD AGAIN. (1/2 LoL)


WOW, This LT supports Xp to w8.1 with matching drivers.
2011 LT? has lots of support still.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-probook-4530s-notebook-pc/5060880



BTW one horror in W10, is many good drivers will now fail
due to stricker , certificate rules, (insane strict) or the chip maker
does not do W10 on this chip X here.
lucky me, all my key chips work intel, NEC, etc. hp8540w, best laptop made, IMO

I use hp nx9010, i want to re-install windows xp but any time i try, the machine shutdown. sometimes is able to move up to copping files sometimes not then shutdown; i don't understand why is only windows...


well that is so easy to answer,
first off you are not using real HP disks are you.
sure. its old Blue Microsoft disks right,
and when you do that wrong, you get no HP chip drivers and lost more missing, even top row, fn keys dead, not just audio.

XP is a dead OS. for 3 years now, zero updates and is now a virus magnet extream.
nx9010 note book shuts down, all 3 os install different. !
old XP runs a very old and very DUMBB seteup.,exe
the newer OS run WINPE for setup.exe. vastly better and boots and loads the OS totally different.

Xp can be installed many ways, not one stated by you.

1-insert, HP install disk in CDROM drive and click, setup.exe running in a XP explorer window, live install
2: boot to HP install disk.
3: boot and hit F11 run HPs on HDD restore partition.
4: same as a above 1, or 2, but is Micro soft disk (wrong, you did it wrong, do not use mS disk) if must ask how, its a long long long story. ive done it all ways, 1000s of time. now since first PC.s ever.



if booting to XP , right or wrong CD. (its a CD right<)> or a stick
that too not stated,
it boots and you answer questions, then it starts copying
if it stalls that means, the CD is bad.
or PC is bad, you do know there are 3million transistors here to fail right? bad HDD, bad Mobo, and more. lots more
even the CPU can over heat and will shut down.

Personally I avoid all CD nows, they sux'd then and do now more.
make and ISO of your CD, (ask its easy and free)
then burn the ISO to a 4GB or bigger uSB memory stick using free RUFUS app.
boot to stick. on my HP hit F9 and pick Udisk USB. boot
bingo no more CD errors ever again.

i bet bad CD. seen it vast times, endless , but not today. too savvy now. to mess with any CD, if you copy it to ISO and get CRC errors
its a bad CD.
end pain.

the problem with real old PC most cant boot to USB
or must be BIOS flashed updated to get that.
ill now ill try to learn what yours can or can not do.
lacking ,what is there now.
but id do this first. go in to BIOS BOOT PAGE

What is the default boot order? The default boot order settings for the computer are configured in the factory. The default boot order for HP notebook PCs is listed below.
  1. Floppy disk drive
  2. Optical drive (DVD, CD-ROM)
  3. Hard drive
  4. USB device (see this?) bingo, can boot and install any OS here
  5. Network adapter

How to set up dual boot for two hard drives?


My freind, you can boot from two hdd inside the same computer. You can only boot from the primary HDD. What you need to do is install both Windows 7 and XP on the primary hdd in different partitions. Then when you boot the system it will give you the option for booting to both XP and 7. You dont even need the secondary hdd unless you are looking to have more storage space.

Troubleshoot D530 Pentium 4, i get the boot screen, over n over


Run hard drive tests, if HD tests good, and no data to keep, restore os from restore partition with f10. If data needs kept, run a repair installation of os. Run fixboot and fixmbr commands from prompt. Also try sfc/scannow from command prompt.

This error comes when your motherbord not read properly harddrive.
for that first reconnect both connection to harddisk.Power cable and ide or sata cable.
Change SATA or IDE cable then check.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are factory defaults.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then you can see bios screen.
Make sure hardddrive detect in bios.
Set first boot device as harddrive.
Then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks.

Yes it is best to format the PC and reload the OS again although I would suggest that you load the latest version of the WinXP family as single boot OS and work. It should give lesser problems with a single genuine anti-virus installed.......sodeep

OS does not boot


Hello there.

Most likely the new stick(s) of memory is causing problems in your system. To verify this i would remove the newly added ram and see if the problem goes away.

Also you can download and run a memory test called 'memtest86+' from here. This can be burned to a cd and booted from the computer, to run a diagnostic on the new memory.

Hope this helps.
