Hello mondeo jum,

The best place to get one is to refer to the pc/laptop manufacturer website. If your computer is built by someone, then find out the maker of the mother board and refer to there website and search for the bios set up disk.

Hope this helps and good luck.

No disk drives found/no os found. hdd hitachi sata not installed in bios. bios does not allow changes in this field.

Its a hardware problem, it seems that your laptop fails to detect your HDD as your HDD is damaged and is unusable. Replace it with another HDD or purchase a new HDD.

Hdd not found

If your Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is not found and assuming that this is also your boot disk for starting the laptop, then you have several possible causes:

1. The HDD has failed / died / become non-operational and will need to be replaced and your operating system reloaded or restored from a backup if you have one.

2. The computer BIOS has lost the configuration for the HDD and doesn't recognise it as a valid boot device. In this case, you would need to go into the BIOS settings and check to see what HDD devices are beig detected, then look at the Boot options within the settings and ensure that the HDD is selected as the main boot device.
Note: It is normal to have other removable devices set ahead of the HDD such as CD / Diskette or USB devices.

3. The HDD boot sector has become corrupted and the computer no longer recognises the disk as a valid boot medium. You would need to repair the HDD is this is possible using an alternative boot media such as the Hiren's Boot CD which you would need to download as an ISO CD image then burn on to a blank CD disc, then boot from. The DOS programs on the Hiren's CD provide a very good HDD repair tool called HDAT2.

An alternative approach would be to remove the HDD from the laptop and connect it as a slave in a different computer and then perform any repair activities from that system.

I have an acer aspire 5536 G, it had windows vista on it. Now everytime i try to turn it on it says that there is no operating system found. what can i do to restore it?

An error of no operating system found, is often an indication of a failed hard disk drive (HDD) in the system (The hard disk drive is where all data including Windows is stored)
  1. If the system is equipped with a floppy diskette drive, remove the diskette from the floppy drive and reboot.
  2. Re-seat the hard disk drive. (From time to time due to expansion and contraction the HDD may lose contact and is no longer detected)
  3. Once re-seated, reset the BIOS defaults (normally F2 at boot) then there is normally a setting to reload defaults. Resetting default settings forces the BIOS to re-detect all peripherals connected to the system.
  4. If you still get that error at boot, then it is very likely the drive no longer is functional and will need to be replaced.

I can't install Window Xp sp 2 in My Compaq CQ45 .If i stall Xp sp 2 ,it can't found HDD..

Restart your PC and go into BIOS Setup. For some computers BIOS setup keys are F2 and for others its Del key. If you are not sure which key takes your computer to BIOS setup. Start pressing F2 and Del keys alternatively immediately after you restart your machine. Make sure that your HDD (Hard disk Drive) is detected. If its not detected and appearing in the BIOS setup than most probably you have to open your hardware which is not recommended if you are a beginner. There can be a number of reasons like loose wiring and bad jumper settings on the hard disk id the disk is IDE.

Media test failure check cable PXE-MOF exiting broadcom PXE-ROM operating system not found

system is trying to boot to a network, this is most likely due to the hard disk drive not being detected, or the windows operating system is missing.
First reset the BIOS defaults, see if the system detects the HDD in the bios and will now boot.

Run diagnostics on the hard disk drive, which I suspect it will fail.
If diags on the drive pass, they try reinstalling Windows. But I expect you'll be replacing the drive.

The machine restart and the harddisk cannot be recognise

Do you mean that the HDD is not detected when you restart your PC?
Is it a New HDD or used HDD? If it is an old HDD probably the HDD have failed.
Is your disk a "SATA OR IDE" interface connection?

Go to your BIOS settings and see whether your HDD is recognised on the BIOS settings.?

Best thing is to go back to your MotherBoard manual and look an the BIOS settings. If you are not sure just use the default settings.

PXE-E61: MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE PXE-M0F: exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Operating system not found. how 2 solve or repair? help me...

The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

No operating system found

Good day most often this happen when the hard disk or the DVD/CD rom attached complicate each other.Try this solution remove the cable attached to the hard disk and re insert it (be sure it is in shutdown mode).If you successfully enter the OS try to run checkdisk on your hardisk to check any damages or run diskmgmt.msc to managed your hard disk.To to it go to run->Type " diskmgmt.msc" without a colon then strike enter.
