You need to reinstall system

    You will probably need to reinstall windows on your system.
    First thing to try is a reset of the laptop, unplugging power adapter and removing laptop battery for few minutes. Put everything together and restart so to reset the laptop.

    If it did not work try restarting in safe mode, pressing f8 key during startup.In safe mode do system recovery to last time system worked.

    This probably still didnt work, if it didn't it means the system has gone.

    Most common case is windows corrupted. in this case you need to reinstall the system.
    If you have factory recovery disks, this may be the best solution. Start laptop with recovery disk 1 in, boot from cd and restore system. You may have lost your data depending if you can make a partial recovery or you are forced to total recovery.

    If you do not have recovery disks you will need to get a windows setup disk to install windows.

    The worst scenario is when hard disk drive is corrupted. If hard disk drive is faulty you may have lost all date. In this case you will need to replace the disk and reinstall the system from recovery disk or windows setup.

When turned on screen lights up with apple logo but nothing else happens

reboot while holding the option key down. It should show you available hard drives from which you can startup.
Choose the drive and then press return or enter.
Then restart.
If nothing happens, turn off the laptop and insert your Mac OS disk and then reboot while holding down the C key.
The computer will load the system on the disc instead of your hard drive. Then instead of reinstalling the system software, look at the top menu and find the Disk Utilities program and run a repair on your hard drive.
Then reboot without the disk in the drive.

Got following error: Load Error! Press any key to reboot

This problem is indeed caused by a faulty MBR but there are solutions other than zero-filling the drive.
If you can get access to a RipLinux CD there is a little utility called Testdisk that will write a new MBR code to the first block of the drive. I just did this on a Sony PCG-K15 this morning (after cloning the drive just to be safe) that was giving the same error of "LOAD ERROR- Press any key to reboot" and it worked like a charm. The machine booted right up.
Hope this helps...

You will have to access the CMOS setup to reassign the boot source to your CD/DVD drive otherwise your backup disc won't be seen.

Check your manual to see which key(s) must be held at power-on to access your setup.

Load Error! Press a key to reboot

If the computer after power on is checking the drives ie the CD and/or floppy to boot from then it is a software problem. You need to put in your recovery CD/disk and hope fully it will allow you to just fix the errors within the boot up files and not have to install os.

Your norton could help - try booting from that or the ones you produced by using Norton.

If you have to reload then do not format just save old - it should give you that option.
