Welcome to Fixya. The reason why you have the message is that the computer is booting on the hard drive that has no operating system installed or not bootable.

If you need assistance please let me know. Thanks

When i turn on my computer and it goes to the home screen after about a min this blue screen comes up saying its crashing and then a black sceen comes up with option of using safe mode is there a fix or is...

The blue screen you are seeing is the Blue Screen of Death. This can be caused by many things going wrong with windows and/or hardware. First things to rule out are recently installed drivers/software. If you installed anything like drivers for a new camera, a new application or even a new thumb drive then you will want to select Safe Mode at that screen and uninstall whatever you installed if you can login with safe mode.
If you didn't install anything new then the issue is much harder to track down. If this just started happening out of the blue,haha pun untended, then it could be anything from a bad hard drive, bad RAM, to Windows having an issues. The best place to start is to see if your computer goes into safe mode. If you can get into safe mode it doesn't rule out a HD issue but makes it easier to recover from if it is and proves that windows core files aren't affected. The reason a bad HD could cause this is there are very small sections on your HD called sectors that store data. Often times these sectors go bad and the HD can't read or write to them. If there are needed files for windows on those sectors you get the blue screen you are seeing. So if you can get into safe mode backup your data just in case this is a bad drive. The drives tend to snowball from being just annoying to dead if you have issues with bad sectors. So I would backup things now if you can. Another thing to check for is if the hard drive makes a mechanical click just before the blue screen. If that is the case then it is definitely the hard drive. Backup your data as fast as you can because that drive has a very short life span left. That noise is also known as the click of death.
If you don't hear the click before the blue screen and you can get into safe mode, I would next check to see if RAM is causing the issue. I have seen bad sticks of RAM, memory, go bad in a way where it can't be written to/read from but is seen by the computer. When windows goes to write to a memory location and it can't then windows crashes giving the blue screen you see. This is somewhat easy to test if you multiple sticks of memory. Power down your computer and unplug it. Then open your computer and you will see two long sticks of RAM. You can google search for SD or DDR RAM to see pictures of what it looks like. Remove one of the sticks then plug in your computer and power it up. See if you still get the blue screen. If so then do the same with the other stick of RAM. If it works then the cause was that stick of RAM.
If that doesn't fix it then I would suggest doing a full backup of the system in safe mode and running the restore that came with the computer. This restore will delete everything from your computer if you select that option so remember to backup your data. This could just be an issue where something within windows became corrupt. Along with data being removed with a recovery, all of the software you installed since you got the computer will be removed as well as applications settings. If you have applications that you lost the product key/license key for there are applications like Magic Jellybean which can recover those if needed.
Generally the blue screen of death isn't the end of the computer, especially for a desktop. The hardware is normally cheap enough to be replaced without being near the price of new computer. Also if this computer is still under warranty the manufacturer will send the hardware for free if it is a hardware issue. Another option if the above steps don't help is to bring it to a local computer repair shop. Generally they have a diagnostic fee that counts towards the repair if you get it fixed. The good thing about the repair shops is they have the extra hardware around to swap things out until they figure out what is causing it.

Cd/dvd drive device driver missing when installing windows 7 ony my HP G72-B62US notebook

I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

best regards & good luck!

Installed hd audio driver but still notification appears that there is no audio device insatalled...

First we need to check if we rightfully plug the speaker in it's rightful socket at the back of your computer. There are three sockets one is for the mic the other one is for the speaker and lastly the input socket. the green socket is it's rightful place. So now we can proceed, make sure that you have a proper sound driver for your computer. If it is still not installed, we really cannot hear anything from the speaker that we just plug in. Try to re-install your motherboard drivers, especially the sound driver for *********** board. If you don't have an installation disk, then try to buy or acquire a driver magician installation disk. After you installed driver magician, it will automatically detect any missing drivers and the rightful once that your motherboard needs. Try downloading each one by pressing download and driver magician will automatically search the web and download it for you. All you got to do is install them. I respectfully hope that this would solve your problems. Have a nice day friend.

Reinstalled canoscan LIDE 200 on pc after we did a format its a Twain everything works except the toolbox when i try to scan a pdf says something about changing it to Twain we have uninstalled and...

Twain is the scanner interface program on the computer. Something is missing from the install or the XP system software. Double check to make sure you're installing an XP-compatible version of the scanner software. The program for newer versions of Windows likely assumes the presence of some software components that may not be there in XP unless the install program puts them in. Without those missing pieces, Twain won't load properly.

Hi ,
You are probably facing a power supply issue , though this device isn't exceptionally gready in power consumption .
You will need to replace the PSU by a larger one . 450 Watts will do but don't hesitate to go for a 600 W since these units are fairly cheap .

Need floppy to boot in XP PRO on HD

Hi, if you can boot using xp cd then instead of going into recovery console you can elect to install xp. The cd will search for existing installations and offer to repair for you. If you are able to get this option it will not delete your programs or personal stuff. You will need your xp code and you may need to reactivate windows when finished. If it doesn't offer repair then f3 to exit so you don't overwrite your personal stuff.

SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?

This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.
