Your operating system wasn't found because kill disk wipes your hard drive clean.
You have to re-install your operating system, all the drivers, and any programs that you might want in your computer.
Boot into the BIOS (tapping the delete key during initial boot-up should get you there, or follow any instructions on the bottom of your POST screen to get into "set-up") and make sure your DVD/CD drive is the first boot option, then put your operating system disc in the drive, and re-boot...the drive should read your CD, and boot from there.

Get rid of ur virus and trojens...


if u have been using ur machine for many years and have virus and trojen in it and it's working slow....
do this
take a full back up of ur data on to a DVD/Zip Drive/Pen drive/USB HD etc.
also go to ur My Computer and note using pencil/paper the C: drive size (the Total Size, Used space, and Free space)
Download killdisk from my website...link is below...
copy it on to a CD...also create a boot disk....ensure ur computer can boot from the boot disk...check boot seq in BIOS....if u cannot boot from CD.....
boot from the boot disk....once u get the A: or D: replace the boot CD with the CD that has the Killdisk utility...
Run the killdisk utility.....type "killdisk" in the D: or A: prompt...
when killdisk loads.....note very carefuly....which is ur C: drive (check from the paper that u noted earlier the details about the C drive)
use the killdisk utility(F10) and wipe the drive...all sectors will become 000000......once the progrma is finished....this will wipe ur disk clean and get back to factory settings....all ur virus/trojens and all corrupt data will be gone....it will say that the free version will do only ONE PASS....one pass is enough....u can always repeat the process again if u want more than 1 Pass....then u can format the HD and load Windows fresh and load all ur programs....the killdisk program takes aprox 1 hr to complete for a 20GB disk....so if u have 200 GB in C: it will take aprox 10hrs to finish.....so be cool and sleep...dont intrupt the process....it will finish...be quite and patience....

You have to install another operating system
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

Note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded

your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

or
Formatting a hard drive to erase its contents does not mean the files are necessarily gone forever. Using data-recovery software, someone still could retrieve sensitive data and files from your hard drive even after you've formatted it. Instead of simply formatting your hard drive, use disc-cleaning software to permanently erase its contents. Disc-cleaning programs work by repeatedly overwriting the contents of a hard drive with random data patterns, making it virtually impossible to recover the original files. Download and install the freeware program Active@ KillDisk (see Below). http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm Click the Windows "Start" button and select KillDisk from the "All Programs" list. Click the check box next to the hard drive you want to erase in the "System Local Disks" menu. Press the "Kill" button. Select the erasing method you want to use from the "Erase Method" drop-down menu. Active@ recommends using the "US DoD 5220.22-M" method. Click "Start" to begin erasing the hard drive. Download and install the freeware program Hard Drive Eraser (see Below). http://www.harddriveeraser.org/ Click the Windows "Start" button and select Hard Drive Eraser from the "All Programs" list. Check the radio button next to the hard drive you want to erase under "Select Drive to Erase." Select the erasing method you want to use from the "Shredding Scheme" drop-down menu. The developers of Hard Drive Eraser recommend "DoD 5220-22 M" Press the "Start" button to begin erasing the hard drive. Download and install Iolo DriverScrubber (see Below). Click the "Windows" Start button, "All http://www.iolo.com/ds/3/ Programs" and then the DriverScrubber program icon. Click "Wipe all contents of a drive," and then click "3.5-Inch Floppy Disk." Insert a blank floppy disk and click "Next." Restart your computer with the floppy disk still inserted. Your computer will boot directly to DriveScrubber. Press the down arrow on your keyboard to highlight the hard drive you want to format in the "Available Physical Drives" menu. Press the space bar to select the hard drive. Press "Enter" to continue. Press the down arrow to highlight "Seven Overwrites" in the "Available Data Wiping Methods" menu, and then press the space bar to select it. Press "Enter" to continue. Press "CTRL," "ALT," "Shift" and "W" at the same time to wipe the hard drive. Hope this helps.

I had vista and was installing windows 7 and got to the network part of the install and the system went to resart and it went to a black screen with a fashing curser and now i can not access anything on my...


guess u were trying to install Win7 over Vista...it does not work that way....Win7 need to be a clean install...that is...it must be installed in a new partition after doing a full low level format....so you will have dual boot at start up...and u chose what u want vista or Win7 to work with for that specific session....
Dual boot helps in many ways...
1 - it helps file management better
2 - it helps to boot from one OS in case the other gives trouble
3 - virus attack are removed from either OS
etc etc

the best way to getback you system is to
1 download KILLDISK (DOS) utility program, get the DOS version
2 copy it on to a CD
3 get hold of a Win98 CD (bootable)
4 boot from Win98 cd, dont chose to install Win98,
5 press ESC and let Win98 quit installing, it will lead to a drive letter of you CDROM (say D or E as the case may be)
6 insert the CD that has the KILLDISK DOS utility
7 Run the program by typing KILLDISK at the CD drive letter prompt.
8 Read all the options available there...and kill the drive in which you had VistaOS/Win7 (C)...this will make all you C: drive sectors to "0"
i.e. it will wipe your C: drive clean and u can start with a clean slate....
if u r not concerned with the data in you disk...wipe all drives and disks in the PC....a 20GB disk will take aprox 1 hr to finish

for all this u must have the BIOS enabled to boot from CDROM drive...

once killdisk has finished doing the wiping process....
insert the Vista or Xp cd and install either...in the partition option make 3 or more partitions....C, D, E of at least 30 GB min for each...as Win7 will take aprox 18 GB....
in C: drive install Vista or XP as the case may be.....
once done....let the system boot and let it load Vista or XP
once in Desktop you can insert the Win7 cd and install it on the D or E: drive....the CDROM drive letter will change accordingly....when you make the partition....so be carefull to

let me know....

HP DV4 displays only a blue screen running vista


Shutdown the computer,disconnect external peripherials.
Turn on the computer and hit F8 key as soon as you restart the computer
You will get the windows advance options menu.
Select the Safe mode option and hit enter.
If the computer boots in safe mode, do a system restore to previous date.
If computer restore then issue is resolved.
If still unable to boot in safe mode.
Ran a harddrive diagnostic.If harddrive test passes. If harddrive test fails replace harddrive.
Boot the system using the windows xp or vista operating system disk. Try to repair the OS then reboot the system and check.
If still unable to boot possible issue with corrupt operating system.
Reinstall Operating system. / Recover System . Good Luck.

Error loading operating system


1. The reason it says "error loading operating system" is because kill disk wiped the operating system from off your computer.
2. Now that you have the installation disk, you need to tell the computer to boot from it. For Dells, usually press F12 when the Dell logo appears, and it should bring up a boot menu. Select the optical drive and it should boot. If you do not see a boot menu, go into your computer's BIOS and tell it to look at the optical drive first when booting, then it will boot from the disk.

Toshiba Satellite shuts down and won't boot up again.


Have you installed any new hardware or loaded any new software lately? If not you might have some corrupt files. Reboot the laptop in safe mode. Just hit F8 a few times. It should give you a menu. Arrow to safe mode and hit enter. After it finishes booting to safe mode, do a system restore. Click Start>click Start>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a date before a couple of days before you noticed anything happening. Restore will take a few minutes. When it's restored and booted, I want you to do one more thing. Click on start>run>type in cmd and hit ok. This will take you to your command prompt. Type chkdsk /f It will tell you it can't run it right now do wan't to run it the next time you start up? say yes. Close the window. Restart the computer and the check disk program will run and fix your errors.
If this has fixed your problem please rate it as fixed. If nit, just add a comment add I'll be happy to help you out more. Thanks.
