I/O error


Are you trying to boot the computer through a CD or floppy disk? If not then you have a hard drive problem. I/O errors are caused by a "Non readable disk"

Non system disk or disk error


It would appear that your operating system has been corrupted if you're booting from the hard drive. If you're trying to boot from a CD or DVD, the is no operating system on them. This could mean taht your hard drive is failing as well.

Hp labtop non system disk error


Hi, this error most often occurs when you try to boot your computer up with either a flash drive (USB drive) or a CD/DVD already in the computer. The system checks these drives first for operating systems before the hard drive, and when it doesn't find your operating system it displays that error. Remove the disk or flash drive and try to boot your computer again, and the error should go away.

I keep getting the following error even after formatting the machine(windows xp sp3) "Non system disk or disk error, replace and strike any key when ready" ..if i insert an Operating System disk,...


Hello.

I suspect that your hard drive is faulty. If you formatted your drive, due to getting errors, this could be your problem in the first place.

I´d suggest running the hardware diagnostics (usually F2 or F12 upon boot) to see if that info is confirmed).

Hope this helps.

Every time the system is turned on it says Non-system disk or disk error, replace and strick any key when ready. There are no disk in the disk drive or the sd drive. No matter how many keys you strike...


Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* bootable files on a USB memory-stick or SD memory-card
* from 3.5-inch diskette drive (if installed)
* from CD/DVD disk
* from your disk-drive

Your computer tried to boot from your disk-drive, but FAILED to do so.

Since the disk-drive is "dead", it tries to boot from any of the other devices,
and displays that error-message when it cannot boot.

So, your disk-drive has "died". Ouch!

You need to purchase a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows onto it.
