How do I install an operating system on my Compaq EVO D500? The hard drive has been wiped clean and there is no operating system on it. I have a windows 98 SE uprade disk.


Hi, you can only use an upgrade disk for win98 if you have win95. If you do not want to purchase an OS, look into linux. I've been very happy with openSUSE and Ubuntu.

Operating system not found media test failure will not reboot aspire 3680


Installing an operating system from one computer and inserting it into another computer will not work specially when they are from different manufacturers because the components in them are different.
The Windows install has to be done on the intended computer.
The media test failure error message refers to a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.

PC DO NOT BOOT


It seems that you don't have any Operating System installed. You need some bootable OS setup disk, and change BIOS settings to boot you PC from CD. Insert disk and restart PC, then follow onscreen instructions to setup OS.

Laptop System Recovery


Some way you have lost your operating system. The way to get your computer back up and running is locate your system restore disks. You can use these to reinstall your operating system. The first disk you will probably use is the OS disk itself. You can install your operating system with this disk. If you do not have the restore disks, you can either contact your computer manufacturer and request them, or you can just purchase the Operating System disk, which is kind of pricey, and reinstall the OS with that. Once you have gotten your hard drive reformatted, and your OS reinstalled, you will have to go to your manufacturer's website and download all the drivers that pertain to your specific computer.

I hope you can do a quick update using windows setup CDs or windows update from your browser if you are connected to the internet. Mostly this should solve the issue. If not mail me.
