My Compaq Presario 700 CM2130 failed to boot one day out of the blue. It just gave me an error message saying Operating System Not Found. I put in the disk for Windows XP and after a few minutes of loading...


When you get to the BIOS window, do you get a message saying that is going to shut down in some period of time of does it just shut down?

Here is my best guess and solution. I believe you've got a worm virus. If you have nothing that you want on this hard drive, and you've got a full install Windows XP disk, I'd do a full install with a complete format, not a quick format, FAT32, if you can, NTFS, if you can't and reinstall Windows XP.

"error loading operating system"


Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.

Operating system not found


Oops---virus may have destroyed the boot sector on your hard disk. Is there a CD in the optical drive, or a floppy in the floppy drive?? If so, remove before booting. If that's not the issue, you need to reinstall the operating system.

As far as original discs---perhaps you can get replacements from Sony if they still support the laptop?

Operating system not found


This message means that the hard disk was not detected, this is due to either the BIOS setting was changed or the hard disk has failed.
Try booting up with a DOS disk and run FDISK, and see if it detects the hard drive, if possible run a diag test program.

Could be a sign that hard drive is failing or a problem with Windows. Do you hear any strange noises, clicks?

Try re-installing Windows and see if that helps.

Thanks!
