You will need to buy an original Windows 98 (or newer, such as Windows XP) installation disk and Certificate of Authenticity with 25-digit registration key, then use it to reinstall Windows on the laptop. Nothing from your home PC will do this for you, unfortunately. You can probably find a Windows 98 installation disk fairly cheaply on the internet.

We tried all part replacements for dell vostro V13. but still the problem exists " No operating system found" what will be the cause? please help


When you receive the error, "No Operating System found". There could be one of two things wrong.
Either your hard drive with Windows properly installed is bad,
Or, you haven't installed Windows or the Windows installation is corrupt.

All you have to do is reinstall Windows using the discs provided to you by Dell and you'll be golden.

Computer won't boot up it says system not found . Its a Inspiron 1501


"system not found" means that the computer cannot find the operating system on the hard disk. I would check the BIOS settings to determine if the hard disk is found by the BIOS.
When you try to boot the system, it should be telling you to press one of the function keys Fxx or the DEL key to enter setup. Do that, and let it try to find the parameters for your hard drive.
If you have noticed that the clock/date settings are getting messed up, it could be that your backup battery is in its last legs and needs replacement. It also provides power for some chip sets to 'remember' hard disk geometry - Cylinders/heads/tracks - which could have been 'forgotten' if the battery is dying.

Where can I get a copy of the operating system for my gateway solo 9300 notebook


From Gateway ... should have gotten a copy when new ... most if not all can be downloaded from the manufacturers web site. You should find the license on the bottom of the computer

sure..sounds like it needs a re install of the operating system, as that image is not a photographic one, but a digital image..if this is a new one for you, then a reinstallation is needed. if you did not get the disks, then you will need new software too.

Windows does not load after gateway logo


This sounds like you have no operating system on your laptop. I bet someway, just as I did before, you have lost your operating system, and it needs to be reinstalled on your computer.
