    Or the HDD has been dis-engaged.
    First: Try and remove the HDD from the laptop and then fix it back on, and then try turning on the computer. [Or you could load into the BIOS and see if your HDD shows up]

    2nd: If the problem still persist, then your windows is corrupted.
    - In that case you could either do a clean install of all the software.
    - Or if need the previous data then follow these instructions:http://www.pcworld.com/article/243190/ho...

    - Peace

Maybe you mean log on password. If you never enter a password to log on, but suddenly when turning on the computer, you are prompted to enter a password to log on, but always failed. You try to log in using an administrator user but failed. Chances are, the operating system is infected with viruses.
So, the operating system has controlled the virus.

solution:
Install the new operating system (not repair the operating system)

I have dell inspiron1520. When I turn it on it give Missing operating system. Whel I run diagnostics it gives me ``error C0de 0148. What is the problem, and how I can fix it.


Hi.

Error Code 0148 means that the Dell diagnostics has found a problem with the hard drive. It is failing or has already failed.
This means you have to get a new hard drive for the laptop. Once you have a new hard drive and have installed it you can use the recovery disk that you should have got with the laptop to reinstall the operating system.




Regards.

Reinstall the operating system from the setup disk. Unfortunately, you may need to reformat it and loose your data. It's probably a corrupted hard drive.

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


If the error comes only with a particular website then it is possible the website is not operating or has closed down.

But if the error is coming with all websites then your internet connection may be faulty. Hard to provide much more help without details of your internet connection type, the operating system on your laptop, etc.

Turns off suddenly


Laptop turns off suddenly? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed.

Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

Sound's like you've had a hsrd drive crash. The message 32768 kb ok is a memory test, this indicates that something went wrong with the operating system the last time it was shut down. It should, after the memory test, either correct the system problem or give an error code. Since it does nothing, this indicates that the hard drive has failed and, unfortunately, needs to be replaced.
