Hi

Please check the bellow link to have a detailed knowledge to your query….

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812492

Also if this error occurs you open the cabinet disconnected the hard disk data cable for few seconds and reconnected the hard disk data cable and boot , it will work.
The error is a fault with the following ….the drive, the cable (not lightly) or the BIOS.

AS it boot hit F11 .This will take you to the BIOS screen, look for boot order and change to HDD00 or HDD01.
One other thing is if the laptop has been dropped it may have damaged the drive and you will need a new one.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Hp laptop


That usually means there's no OS installed on the hard drive. If it had Windows 7, you can download the OS to another machine, burn a CD with the ISO and reinstall. You could also install a free Linux variant.

My hp laptop shows non system disk or disk error


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

When i switch the laptop, i hear a knocking sound from hard disk and the computer displays non - system disk or error disk plz help


Good Day Kawindwe!

I am sorry but I think the hard disk is on its last leg. A knocking sounds is the first symptoms of faulty hard disk. It is better to replace it.




The non-system disk error is displayed when the CMOS BIOS failed to detect the hard disk.

There is a small chances of making your hard disk work again. It worked for me before maybe it might work with you too.

First, turn off your Laptop. Remove the power supply adaptor from your Laptop. Remove the battery. Press and hold the power on button for at least 5 seconds to discharge remaining volts on your unit. After awhile, return the battery, plug in the power supply adaptor and turn on Laptop. See if that recognize again your hard disk.

If the first did not fix it, try this one. Turn off your Laptop. Disconnect your hard disk and then reseat the connectors properly. Then, turn on your device. Did that fix your problem?

Kawindwe, in case that fixed it, I recommend you back up your files cause the hard disk will not last that long.

How do you install a new Hard Drive


DESKTOP COMPUTER: If you want to add another hard drive besides your already existing hard drive:1) Open the left side cover of a desktop computer with a screwdriver. 2) Locate two spare red cables ends (one for data transfer, another for elictricity) and plug them to your new hard drive (you can't do anything wrong, as the plug shape for each type is unique). Remark: If you don't have any spare ends of such cables inside your computer, buy SATA data cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/5-SATA-SERIAL-ATA-HD-DATA-HDD-SIGNAL-CABLE-RIGHT-ANGLE-/390263214964?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5add801374#ht_1746wt_972 and 1 SATA power cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/4-pin-IDE-Molex-2-SATA-Power-Cable-Splitter-Adapter-/270716115788?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f07f01b4c#ht_3549wt_754. 3) Place the hard disk next to your already existing one and attach with screws so it won't move.
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbb9xrR49d8
LAPTOP COMPUTER: If you want to install a new hard disk for laptop, you normally can't have 2 hard drives - you can replace the old one (turn your laptop bottom-up, open screws at the bottom of it, open one of the smaller covers and locate your old hard drive in one of them) and reinstall the whole operation system (e.g. Windows XP) from your installation CD.
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTCu331Rsac
EXTERNAL DRIVE: Or alternatively you can use it as an external hard drive (which is slower than the inner, though, because it connects to the computer through slower USB ports) - buy an external hard disk drive case:
In any case installing a hard drive is much easier than it seems, you virtually can't make a big mistake.

Non system disk error


Well i can say that your nephew is correct.
I should open it up and just look for lose cables.
Usally the screws are easy enough to spot.
make sure that you are grounded when you open it up, for example touch a element before you start working, dont touch your hair etc.

Hopefully its just a cables or else the hardware has gone broken.
