If you create a new partition on your hard drive with anything but partition magic or something similar, the process of creating the partition will wipe all data from the entire hard drive to resize the partition. you will probably need to re-install Windows fresh unless the utility you used just happens to have an undo (not very likely) playing with partition sizes of used drives is not advisable.

I got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Thanks for using Fixya

MY LAP TOP MESSAGE SAYS... 1782 DISK CONTROLLER


You are getting this mess because the system is not able to detect a boot partition on the hdd or may be it is not able to detect the HDD itself.

Try to remove the HDD(hard disk) and re-seat it, Also make sure that there is no disk in the CD drive (in case the first boot device in the BIOS is set as CD drive).

Go to BIOS by pressing F10 (system setup) and check if the HDD is detected in BIOS.

Try to run a recovery by pressing F11 on first screen after power on.

Please get back for any further assistance.

Error message Non system disk error replace and strike any key wh


Hi !

This error means either there is no disk (or disconnected/wrong connected) or your HDD is gone (which I don't believe) !

I can't find a reason why you pulled out your HDD when it was (I assume) working good before ?!?

Anyway, . . .now, please check carefully the connectors - both sides, to the HDD and to the Board(if any), if they are properly fit!
It is an IDE disk and there are two groups pins on the HDD. Check the pins if they are all going to plastic male connector (and then to the board.
A group of 4 or 6 pins on HDD should not be connected. There is one pin missing in (about) middle of the second row of pins - it is o.k.

Put your ear close on the chasis of laptop and find if there is a spinning noise when you turn your laptop on.

If there you can hear noise, then check in BIOS if your HDD exists.

If not, try to check it on another Laptop/PC.
Regards.

I have a HP 8595c computer. I put a DVD in and it froze. I restarted the computer and now it won't boot up proberly. I get this message. "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key...


Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive
  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus
