When i am swiching on the laptop it shows os not found


Dear Friend,
As there is no primary drive in this vaio, it boots form Hard drive. If OS on hard drive is corrupt OR HDD is bad then you will get such massage. Go to set up. Enable external booting option. Try booting the system from USB pen drive ( You have to make a bootable pen drive ). If it boots then you have to replace HDD.

Sir my laptop is does not start. error ir operating system not found.


If the laptop does not find the operating system on boot up it's ether the HDD has failed or the Operating system is corrupt the only answer is to reinstall the operating system or change the HDD.
You could try getting into the Bios on boot up normally by pressing F12 after pressing the power on button and checking if the laptop is seeing the HDD.
I say F12 but without knowing the laptop model it's a guess.
It should tell you on the boot up screen which function key to press to enter the Bios.
Once in the Bios check to see if the HDD is listed if it is the laptop is seeing it so it should be a simple matter of reinstalling the OS if its not then the HDD is faulty you will need to replace it and reload the OS.

IDE#0 ERROR


Usually the HDD is set on IDE #0.
The PXE error appears if the notebook tries to boot up from the LAN but the cable is not connected or there is no possibility for LAN booting.

In my opinion there is something wrong with the HDD or the BIOS cannot recognize the HDD correctly. I would recommend checking the HDD pins. Furthermore you should change the booting order in the BIOS.

Booting problems with acer laptop - no operating system found??


Hi,

PXE (pronounce Pixie) is an agent used to boot on to the network.

It's using the DHCP protocol to localise a server where the image of the OS is located

If, for any reason, the hard drive is not seen the computer will attempt to boot on the network controller.
This can be caused if the hard drive is missing, unplugged or corrupt, or simply by not having the boot order configured correctly.

When you start your laptops, press F2 repeatedly until you enter the bios set up, navigate to the boot order and make sure that the hard drive (sometimes listed as HDD....) at the top of the list.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anymore help.
