I have recently replaced the hard disk in my evo n610c compaq laptop. I have a windows xp cd. But when I turn it on I just get the 'non system disk or disk error' message. I have changed bios...


When you first start the system ensure you have the windows XP CD in the optical drive before you try to boot. Once you see the Compaq screen press F12 (or if the system has a different prompt choose it) to get the one time boot menu, select the optical drive with the arrow keys, press enter, the system should give you a 5 second prompt to boot to the XP CD, press the spacebar to boot. This should bring up the windows XP setup, choose NTFS quick for the file system and then for any other prompt the default setting and windows should install

Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready


Hello Sir.

Please check that your cd or dvd drive does not contain any disks when attempting to boot.
This can sometimes cause boot problems. The other problem you may be experiencing is hard drive failure. This can be caused by the hard drive loosing its configuration from wear or failure. Perhaps you have an extra hard drive laying around you can test to see if you get same error.
Thanks And GOOD LUCK!

Not a driver, you have a corrupted program on the boot list. The safest way to solve this is to recover your files from Safe Mode and reinstall. Then reinstall your programs one at a time with reboots in between. If you feel something has changed in between reboots then the last program installed is bad, get rid of it.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

More than likely a bad hard drive. Replace it with a known good one.

If this error occurs you open the cabinet disconnected the harddisk data cable for few seconds and reconnected the harddisk data cable and bot it will work.
