Question about Dell Inspiron 2650 Notebook
To stsrt with please check boot order in BIOS. Maybe you have all three options to boot from CD/DVD drive. There is an option for "Boot from Network" that's got enabled in the BIOS, that can cause the message if you're not actually booting from a network.
When the system starts, use F1, F2, F10 or a combination like maybe Ctrl/Esc to enter the BIOS
When this instruction shows at startup, press the appropriate key, and you'll be shown a screen or screens of options for how the computer has hardware components set. Depending on how your BIOS screen is laid out, if an option to "Boot from Network" is enabled, it should be turned off, or if "First Boot Device" is set to "Network", it should be changed to a setting like "HDD0", or on a laptop where there can normally only be one hard drive, likely just HDD.
If you find an inappropriate setting like this and change it, save and exit from the BIOS setup, the system will restart and should boot Windows from the hard drive as normal.
Second issue could be an issue with the MBR (Master Boot Record). If your MBR or FAT is bad. (MBR is the Master Boot Record where the HDD stores the initial instructrion for booting, FAT is the Table where all the files are marked).you get this error.

your laptop is showing "Operating System Not Found" because its not seeing your hard disk. You hard disk must have shifted from its normal position, that is, its not well connected to the laptop. This must have occurred when you are moving the laptop about.
To solve this problem, shut down your laptop and remove the battery, then remove the hard disk from your computer and fix it back in and turn your system back on. That's where the problem is coming from.
Not until your system sees the hard disk, it will keep showing "Operating System Not Found" and not boot.
I hope you understand my explanations.
