Your hard drive is corrupted and the OS needs to be re-installed on the hard drive. Re-install the OS using your discs, but first use disk 1 to go into disk utilities and select your hard drive, then click repair disk permissions. After that click on repair disk and see if that don't help. If that don't help then your next step is to re-install the OS, because somewhere the startup file got corrupted. If that don't work, then your SOL, which means your hard drive has given up the ghost and you need to install a new hard drive.

I have an Acer Laptop with Windows Xp.... when i start my computer says |Be_$|Be_$| and i can't use it, what that mean?


LOL, I don't know what that mean!!! Maybe you should just get an operating system disk and reinstall it. You can do a Repair Install so that you don't lose any of your data.

Invalid disk system will not leave screen


that error happens when you have a nonbooteable unit inserted or when your OS master boot record gets damage and the bios doesn't find the OS boot up loader.

check in the bios the boot order settings

usually is like this

1 - Floppy
2 - Cdrom
3 - HardDisk
4 - Network

there can be more options but those 4 are what we care now. change the order in what the system checks for a boot media

like this

1 - Cdrom
2 - Harddisk
=============== place any other device in any other after # 2

If you still get the message then make sure that you laptop has a OS installed ( if it has one already) then try to repair the MBR (master boot record) using the os install cd and the recovery console ( applies to Windows XP, Vista, 7 ).

Otherwise Install a operative system in the laptop and that should take care of the message.

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.
