My desktop hp pavilion m7570n shows "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter" i opened monitor to check fr lose cables and just want to make sure if they are appropriately inserted. Please...


This can also mean that the operating system can not find the boot partition.
first check if in BIOS the right disk is the boot disk. You will have to push Del or F12 or other during startup. Check boot order. Choose your first harddisk to boot from and click F10 to save and exit.
If that is right and you tries all harddisks and still not booting, try to start up from a rescue disk or the original operating install disk.
for Windows:
given options: install on disk, tthen if already installed Windows found, choose repair. Choose repair startup.

Loveno S10-2 - No bootable device found


Make sure your hard drive has higher priority in the boot options in BIOS. If it still doesn't boot then you will need to replace your hard drive. If it shows no hard drive in BIOS then the drive is most certainly bad and needs to be replaced.

I power up the computer and get ''operating system not found'' on the screen.


The operating system not found error message is one commonly seen by techs and non-technical people alike. If you run into one, it may not be a problem at all. Here's an example:

If you're installing a new operating system to a hard drive or partition, or have just installed a new mother board, chances are you aren't alone. Most of the occurrences of the operating system not found error occur during these processes. In many cases, this is simply BIOS related, and can be changed very quickly (and remedied) during the Boot process. There are a wide variety of occurrences of this error, so if you have recently been "tinkering" or have installed a new operating system, take heart, there are many computer forums on the subject which may be able to point you to an answer.

Another reason why you may get an operating system not found message, is due to a damaged or incorrectly formatted partition. If your computer can't read the partition, then all data stored within that partition cannot be found. This includes your operating system. To solve the problem, you may need to look into partition recovery.

There are instances, however, when the operating system not found error occurs because of file system error, or worse, hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, you may require professional hard disk drive recovery, especially if you were not changing the system details recently, and were just working as normal.
When To Suspect Hard Disk Drive Failure Certainly, there is an explanation for everything, and the operating system not found error can be explained very easily. First, check your floppy disk drive. Is there a disk in it? In cases where this occurs, simply removing the floppy disk will likely solve your problem. Your computer may have been looking for an operating system on the floppy, and as a result, you were handed an error message. Removing the floppy disk should fix your issue.

If there is no floppy disk in your drive, it may be time to check the boot sequence. You can do this in your BIOS. First of all, does your hard drive get detected as the primary hard drive? If it does not, your hard drive may have in fact failed. If it does, move to the Boot Sequence section of the BIOS. If your hard drive does not show up within the first three boot devices, you probably have a problem. Adjust your BIOS accordingly.

Can't Find Hard Disk Drive Either

If you've done these preliminary checks, and are still receiving the operating system not found error, you could be facing hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, remember : DO NOT PANIC. 99 times out of 100, your hard drive's data can be recovered by a professional firm. So rest easy. Then try this test if you have another computer system available.

First, disconnect your hard disk drive from your system, and connect it to a system you know works as the slave drive.

Second, boot up the system and go into Windows explorer. If you can see the drive, you may not have a problem at all, or have one which can be fixed with simple data recovery software tools (Do a search on Google for data recovery software tools for a selection).

If, on the other hand, you cannot see your drive, you may want to consult a professional hard disk drive recovery shop like Hard Disk Recovery Services. Contact us here for a hard disk drive recovery quote, and we will usually be able to diagnose your problem over the phon

Computer boots up then shows windows 98 scrren


you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:

tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image

version of it), antivir-software on cd!

- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.

(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)

if not:

leave the setup process without fully installing
(press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)

in both cases :

type at the dos-prompt:

c:\win98/win

(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)

win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.

- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan.
- delete and/or repair infected files
- turn down, attempt to reboot from hd
- if still impossible reboot from win98-cd,
run repair of installation and try once again
standard boot

problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!

Red light on power up. No image on monitor. Pc fans working.


On a computer mainboard there are usually a number of connecting pins right next to one another called RESET, POWER LED, HD LED etc.
The power led often leads to the green LED next your power button to show that the juice is available and on. The cable that leads to the red LED is usually the HD LED which shows that a disk drive is being accessed.
Since the red LED is active, one of your disks is probably being accessed and that's where the problem is. Either the disk is damaged, the cable is still not inserted properly or the bios is having problems identifying one of your disk drives.

1) Power the computer off. Take the power cable out. Make sure that you are grounded (have no static charge on your body). Take all of the cables between your mainboard and your disk drives off.
2) Plug in one of your disk drives, reconnect the power cable, switch the power on and watch the monitor. If all goes well you will see that the bios has recognized the disk drive and will simply display a message that the operating system for example isn't available or no harddisk drive is present (if you connected something other than a harddisk drive).
3) repeat this process with the other drives, powering the pc completely off each time and then adding a new disk drive.
4) once you've reached the point where the red LED drive is displayed but no message is available, you've found the culprit that is keeping your pc from booting properly. Hopefully the cable has just been stuck on improperly or the cable is damaged (Check it), rather than you having disk drive damage.

Good luck!

Hi Debbie!

It sounds like you dell trying to boot up from a disk.

Get in the bios and change the boot seqvence from cd to hdd (harddisk)

Before that, check so the cdrom is empry, so the girl dident forget a disk or something in the cg-sledge.

If the cd-sledge is empty then the bios change will solve our problem.

Good luck
Nic
