    I never see the "Press F10 to enter system setup utility". It goes straight to "Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready". Any ideas?

While switching on your system press F10 and the go to the Advanced setup. There you select and press Enter key on change boot order and then change the order by using Page up or page down key. Alternatively you may use Esc key while showing the compaq logo on boot, you will be able to change the Boot Order.

Hi,

At some time during the powering up process, there will be a display at the bottom that says"at the bottom it says "Press F10 to enter system setup utility". Pls do so to enter CMOS/BIOS configuration. Look for the Boot (Order) page. Once in the page, instructions how to change or move boot priority is usually at the bottom.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Pls try pressing F10 even without the message immediately after powering up before the expected "Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready" shows up.

    Alternately, there is a possibility that the hard drive is no longer being detected by the laptop or some of its system files have been corrupted.

    Try popping in the CD anyway, might switch to booting from CD since it couldn't from the HD.

Cannot open my laptop... Did everything from removing the battery, cleaning the fan but still screen says non system disk or disk error replace n strike any key when ready.... Help pls


Please try the following:

1. Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the CD-ROM drive. If there is no CD or remove the floppy disk from the floppy drive.

2. Change your computer's boot sequence. To do this, you must change your computer's setup and the option that controls which device your computer uses to start from. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed. Normally, this would be your hard drive.

I got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Non-System disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


Sounds like your system is not recognizing your hard drive, you could have a non system CD, so take that out....
Some ssytems hiccup and need the bios set, you want to look for boot order and see your drive there.
If your drive is not recognized, you may be having drive issues at which point you MUST consider data recovery to another drive before you proceed.

Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus
