Need to reboot i can't even get to the start screen, it keeps telling me to put in a disc.. i don't have a disk drive


This error means that your hard drive isn't functioning correctly. The computer is attempting to load the operating system off your hard drive but the computer can't find the operating system. There are several causes for this problem:

1. The hard drive has crashed.
2. The boot sector and/or operating system has become corrupted.
3. The hard drive has become disconnected from the laptop; this is unlikely but possible.

To determine what has happened follow these instructions:
1. Turn off netbook and remove all usb devices.

2. Turn on netbook and press whatever key enters the boot menu; often it is ESC or F10 - look on the first screen you see when you turn on the computer.

3. Look at the possible devices listed that you can choose from. If the hard drive isn't listed, then your netbook isn't detecting the hard drive likely because it has crashed. At this point you're going to have to take the netbook to a repair shop.

4. If your hard drive is listed, then it's possible that the hard drive is fine but that the boot sector has become corrupted. If you have access to a USB CD-Drive and a Windows installation disk or have a way to create a bootable USB flash drive, then there are some solutions that can be attempted. If you don't have access to these things, then you will have to take the netbook to a repair shop.

If you do have access to a Windows installation disk or can create a bootable USB flash drive, then post back to this solution and I can help you further.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

Windows will not start

This could be a problem with corrupted operating system files, I request you to format you hard drive completely then reinstall the operating system you want. If you could format the complete hard drive then there is no problem with the hard drive.

This should fix the issue.

My computer fails to boot up, it states i am missing NTLDR. can this be downloaded.


It sounds like your computer is trying to load from the network. This is done if you don't have an operating system on local media such as a hard drive.

If you boot from hard drive, either your OS has been corrupted, the drive has crashed, or somehow the boot order has been corrupted.

I suspect your HD has been corrupted, possibly by a virus.

TRY starting in safe mode by hitting F8 several times as you try to boot.

Error Msg: A disk read error occured.


WEll i don't know how they fixed it before but if you get a disc read error then it's a bad hard drive. They may have gotten it to read again but it's still a bad hard drive and needs to be replaced and a new one put in. Don't know if they charged you for a bad hard drive before but it doesn't sound like they replaced it. Get a new drive and re-install your operating system and it should be fine.

Unexpected error during install


Is XP Media Center what you had installed previously when the cam was working? If so, are you using the correct and latest driver from the manufacturer for said operating system?, That being also said, are your video and audio drivers up to date for the operating system?? Those will be the primary concerns, however remember that a corrupt download or one that became corrupted as a result of the hard drive crash could be the real issue. So in other words, start from scratch and check everything you do.

Hard drive crash, drive defects in the area where the O/S is, or, corrupted O/S files.

Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic software and run it. It will examine your drive and give you an evaluation.

If it tells you the drive is fine, the either a complete reload, or a repair will get you back up and running. Whether you will be able to recover any of your data, will depend on the drive condition.
