    what model# hardrive do i need? you think that will do it?thanks.......

  • ImtHere Apr 07, 2008

    My Compaq N610c laptop is also giving the error "Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready".



    I tried following things:

    1. Replaced the hard disk of laptop with another hard disk of same laptop model. It booted up.

    2. I replaced my hard drive in another laptop of same model. That laptop did not boot up.



    It means hard drive might have developed bad sectors or it might have crashed. That is mother boards of both the laptops are not able to detect it.

    As of now, i would like to immediately recover the data and back them up. Let me know the procedure, software and hardware installed for back up.



    I would also like to know possiblity to booting laptop with my current harddisk.

Turn it all the off. Then pull the hard drive out and put it back in again. Now, put your system disk (Win XP?) into the drive and turn the laptop on. It should do something else now. I have had this happen on several laptops I have rebuilt and it takes patience to get them started sometimes.... I have managed to load XP onto all of them eventually!

Hope this helps

Compaq evo n800v saying non system disc or disc error


You need to check in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is being detected. Other than that, do you have like a flash disk or a media card attached to it when booting up?

Check your floppy drive and see if there's a disk in it and remove it. If there is no diskette in the floppy drive and you are still getting the error. You can go into the Bios and turn off the "boot from floppy drive", that way it will not look for the floppy drive when booting up. Hope this helps.

Laptop fails to start up


Sounds like your hard drive has gone bad. Can be easily replaced with another 2.5" laptop hard drive but all your stuff is lost I'm afraid. Get it fixed under warranty if you still have time.

Hdd lock on start up and never set a password help


Your best bet in this case is to use a Live CD of a Linux distribution, like Ubuntu, that you can download from Ubuntu.com. You put the CD in your drive and boot your computer from it and it gives you unfettered access to most peripherals connected to your computer. This should circumvent any kind of password prompt you're getting and, unless the drive is encrypted, you should be able to access your data.

Let me know if u got help!
