Question about Computers & Internet
Is there a way you can format the hard drive on your laptop? If there is, i will advice you first format the laptop before trying to load the operating system, but there is no way you can format the hard drive, there are still two other options i will suggest to you, first is, you will need to look for a friend that uses this kind of laptop and get the operating system from the friend to use on your laptop. Second option is, the hard drive on the system might be bad, so i suggest you get another hard drive on the system and see if you can load the operating cd with you on the cd, am quite sure,it will load on the new hard drive, and the problem should be solve.

Base from the description of your problem, what we can do first for this is to make sure that the laptop is set to boot first from the CD ROM , then also make sure you're using a bootable operating system CD and also by the way check if the hard drive is detected under BIOS and if not open the laptop and make sure the hard drive is connected properly.
