No operating system how do I insert the missing operating system


You can not inset operating system like CD/DVD inserting! It is special kind of software that runs your computer to make an environment for you to work. First you need a Boot able Operating system cd/dvd.
This laptop normally comes with Microsoft Windows xp Media Center Edition. You may choose professional.
Now insert this disk into your laptop, boot form cd/ dvd, and start installing...After finishing installation properly , you can remove disk from your laptop and your operating system will be inside of your laptop.
If you are new you can not do this things along, Try to read manual of your laptop to select boot device to boot from cd/dvd and learn how to setup windows or other operating system you want. Let me know updates.

How can i install windows xp on laptop CQ60-104TU without flushing the BIOS


When your operating system stops working correctly, you might need to re-install it. In many cases, when you continue operating the same computer for years, installing and un-installing programs over and over again, sometimes certain operating system files don't work as well as they once did. When that happens, you can also start a re-installation of your operating system. If you use the same operating system for a number of years, it is often helpful to re-install the system software every now and then.

1. Put the original CD or DVD for the operating system in your CD or DVD drive.

2. Shut down your computer and restart the computer. Boot from the CD, if your system asks. This will start the installation process and will pause when a blue installation screen appears.

3. As the screen directs, press the "Enter" key to continue the installation process.

4. Press the "F8" key to continue the installation, agreeing with the Windows Operating System licensing agreement.

5. Press the "R" key on the next screen to attempt the repair process. This process will attempt to re-install all the operating system files that are on the installation disk without bothering any of the customization that you have done to your operating system. This process may take a few hours to complete, but when it completes, you should have Windows XP re-installed and working on your laptop.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

It says that


It means your laptop has no Operating System.
Is this a new laptop?
You will have to install an Operating System (OS), by using an OS installation CD.

If you dont know how to install an operating system, you can view my tip on installing Windows XP which is a generally similar process of installing other Windows OS (Vista, Windows 7)

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.
