If it is a new disk with nothing on it you will need a boot disk (floppy or OS boot disk) to format it and install your operating system.

    well..then..you'll need to turn it off, hit the reset, reboot..enter it again, and then turn it on, recycle it one more time..

    and then you can decide how good the solution is.

Operating system not found !


Your harddrive has failed or your operating system has crashed.
You will have to either run a repair disc (windows 7 installation disc or whatever Operating system you had installed on it before) or get your hands on a new installation disc and install a new operating system. Either that or take it to a computer geek in order to have them reinstall the operating system for you and hopefully, recover all of your files.

I got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Thanks for using Fixya

A dark screen saying disk read error occurred


This could be the result of a couple different things: 1) the hard drive has crashed and is no longer able to boot into your operating system, 2) the system folder to your operating system has been corrupted and missing the files to allow it to boot up, 3) the connector between the hard drive and the motherboard has something wrong with it and isn't allowing your computer to recognize that the hard drive is there.

You've probably got to have your computer configured to boot from a rescue CD before it can recognize and install the new harddrive. Also make sure that there is an operating system installed on the hard drive . If not it will not do anything until you install one. This will be automatic if you install a new XP or Vista DVD into the computer's DVD drive the reboot.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.
