Hi,

This error message is indicative that either the hard drive (with the OS) is not detected by the BIOS / motherboard or that the files needed to start the Operating System is not found in the hard drive.

Diagnosis requires that the presence of the HD be detected by the CMOS/BIOS and saved. Booting to your OS would then determine if files are missing or not.

A re-install/repair if you are using Windows ispossible using the recovery CDs that came with your PC or an OEM Windows installer and using the repair option.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

it mean your operating system is corrupted or your hard disk is not detected with machine

for operating system re install your operating system and if you face any trouble to installing operating system like hard disk not found or no drive.

so go to setup and check that if there showing any hard drive.
absoultly not so plug your data cable and power cable properly on your hard disk and re check now if problem is not solve yet. so now pull out your hard disk from pc and plug the both wire of power and data and now check that your hard disk is running making some noise you can feel that its running if not so replace your hard disk card and now plug it on pc it will running now and install your operating system . you can operate your pc with your old data. thanks

How to format the desktop if i don't have a recovery CD?


You need to have an operatng system CD in order to put the operating system back on. If you do not have a recovery CD, then you need an OEM version of the operating system that is indicated on the operating system product key sticker usually found on the back or bottom of your computer. Or, you need a regular retail version of the operating system which will include its own product key found on a yellow sticker.

Operating system not found


"operating system not found" ussually means that boot sector on the hard drive is bad or that the hard drive is bad. You need a diagnostic disk to check the drive. You can try running FDISK , option 4 to see if it sees the drive. If it does, it may be a matter of formattinting the drive.
