Likely the hard drive has failed, you're best off contacting the manufacturer if it is under warranty. If the warranty has expired a local tech shop may be able to assist you in recovering your data and reinstalling the operating system. Best of luck, Ravi Shanghavi

Reset bios to defaults and try again. If that doesn't work then its possible that your hard drive has failed.

Operating system not found


hi goodner,

getting the error "operating system not found" means that the hard drive where the Operating System is installed (i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7), Cannot be found by you BIOS upon the boot sequence.

When you turn the PC/Laptop, you normal see a screen that flashes flashes with screen that displays the ff:

Primary Master:
Primary Slave:
Secondary Master:
Secondary Slave:

The Primary master should have a value right next to it. If not, either the hard drive is faulty and needs replacement, cable is loose,

If you have a value to it and stil gets the same error the operating is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

When turning on system sylvania name will appear with a message at bottom of screen telling me to press f2 or f10. If I dont press anything it will go to a black screen, at the top left corner it says...


Well, let see, it saying that operating system is not found. This mean that there is no operating system loaded. It is 80% that your hard drive is currupted 19% that the operating system is damage if your harddrive is not damaged... unless you have a operating system load to a external source such a usb thumb drive, flash driver. If you didn't. then most likely your hard drive is currupted. The only way to see this is to press the f2 or f10 which ever key that load the bios menu which is a blue menu after you press it. Then see if the hard drive is detected. If not then your harddrive is bad and needs to be replaced and a Os is need to be reinstalled in order to work. If you have another laptop or a desktop that can accept sata drive, you might want to test this if the other computer would detect it as in some case the expansion slot for the harddrive could come worn out and couldn't read your harddrive. But most of the time, it is your harddrive, it is bad and need to be replaced.
