operating system not found
Bad connection from your hard drive to the laptops motherboard. ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/62p9631.pdf page 63 tells you how to remove the hard drive - I would take it out, clean the connections with rubbing alchohol, and FIRMLY put it back and see if it will come up then.

Could be a problem with the MBR or Master Boot Record.
It could be damaged. It's only a file system type problem not a hardware fault.
Have a look here.
