Hi. You may need to re-install the Operating System but your netbook doesn't have an Optical drive. Better call Dell Phone Support for help in how to recover system back to factory image.

It tells me that the operating system cant be found

I'm suspecting that the mbr might be messed up or an important file was deleted from your system32 directory. Have you tried booting with a windows disc to maybe try to repair the installation?

Printer offline

Go that manufactured web page and download the newest software for your printer. Also contact apple and explain the issue. I might be that printer is not compatibly with mini mac operating system.

I hope that helps. Also how are connecting the printer to your mini mac are you connecting it though usb or though the computer network? Thats another factor to think about.

I cant locate my blutooth

Without basic information such as Operating System, Device you wish to connect (mouse, keyboard, headset, etc.) and whether it worked before or has never been turned on??

The best I can do is offer the most common solution; here's the link to everything pertaining HP's, Notebook, Bluetooth Connection. If you only want to turn it on, these instructions are clear enough.

Hp Mini 1000 Blue Tooth: Enable/Disble.

Thank You For Choosing FixYa~!

Hi when i turn my dell mini laptop on it freezes and then a black screen will come up sayin failure and no operating system found

sounds like either your operating system ie. Windows is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled or your Hard drive is faulty, which means you will need to buy a new hard drive.

hope I was able to help

My Dell inspiron mini 10 is displaying "operating system not found" how can i restore it back to normal working condition.

The problem can be with the Hard drive or the Operating system

* Check in BIOS if the hard drive size is getting detected..
* Keep pressing the F2 key when the computer turns on to get into the BIOS
* Once you are in BIOS check if the actual Hard drive size is seen
* If it is not seen you need to replace the Hard drive - get in touch with Dell or local tech
* If the hard drive six is seen then you can reinstall te OS that will fix the issue
* Do the following steps for that

Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..

Operating System Not Found on VAIO Laptop

The disk-drive inside the computer has ceased to function (or has ceased to have connected "power" and "data" connections) -- thus, the Operating System cannot be read from the disk-drive.

Take the computer to a qualified technician; there's nothing that you can do "inside" your computer.
