Hi,

Initially, pls check if your hard disk and CD ROM could be auto/manually detected in your CMOS/BIOS. Thereafter, try using a CD ROM cleaner to ensure that the CD drive will read your recovery CDs. It is possible that the hard drive is faulty, the CD ROM is likewise faulty or the interface for both is faulty. "Missing Operating System" error could indicate either no hard disk (in your case defective) or the OS was corrupted or partition was somehow deleted.

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 seems to be a problem with your hard drive. Or your operating system files have been corrupted. If you do not have any critical data on the computer, I would go for a reinstall of windows

Boot into Setup and run the TOOLS / PRIMARY HDD TEST / SHORT TEST.

If it fails, try another HDD.

If OK, verify Boot Order is Floppy, CD-ROM, HDD. Exit Setup.

Print Table 1 Low Level Format instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106419

Boot with a DOS disk that contains Debug. Run the Table 1 script. Turn V5000 Off.

Boot with the HP Operating System CD. XP install should now proceed normally.

Good luck.

Recovery disk


Got this information from online technical support of compaq. You need to order the recovery disk online and need to provide the following details. Check out this link http://h18000.www1.hp.com/
  • serial # of your laptop
  • medel #
Or you can just install the operating system and device drivers. To download drivers click on this link http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq_support.html and key in your product number (this is found under your laptop)

your operating system wasn't found because kill disk wipes your hard drive clean.
You have to re-install your operating system, all the drivers, and any programs that you might want in your computer.
Boot into the BIOS (tapping the delete key during initial boot-up should get you there, or follow any instructions on the bottom of your POST screen to get into "set-up") and make sure your DVD/CD drive is the first boot option, then put your operating system disc in the drive, and re-boot...the drive should read your CD, and boot from there.
