This usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

My pc laptop does not start due to error 2000-03000

Try using the Last Known Good Configuration:
  • Remove any CD or DVD from your computer, power down, then power up.
  • Do one of the following:
    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by shutting down and restarting your computer.
    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.
  • On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press Enter.
  • If your computer has more than one operating system installed, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system that you want to start by using Last Known Good Configuration, and then press Enter. Windows will then resume starting normally

    Operating sytem not found, what are the BIOS settings


    As the Computer is displaying an error message "Operating System not found", you may perform a BIOS reset and check if the issue is resolved.

    1) To reset the BIOS, boot the Computer to the BIOS.
    2) Once you are in the BIOS, please try pressing the F9 key.
    3) The F9 key should be the shortcut key to reset the BIOS.
    4) However, you will also have the option to reset the BIOS in any of the tabs in the BIOS main menu.

    Please try performing the above steps which I have mentioned and let me know the results.

    Hope this helps.

    Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

    Operating system not found on my laptop

    ok i have had this problem.. (my computer would show the loading screen with all of the commands at the bottom. after this it would not boot up, but show a message on a black screen saying "operating system not found")
    I completly tore down the laptop and making sure i had no issues with anything. so here is what i did that is simple and ended up solving the issues 3 times in a row.

    1. take the cover off for the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop ( shows 3 very small disks beside each screw)

    2. grab the clear strip that is on the hard drive and pull out the hard drive. ( blow out where it connects on the right side if dirty)

    3. Reconnect the hard drive this will reset it.

    4. Make sure to change back the processes to defaults when the computer starts back up.. If you fail to do so you will have to repeat the process each time you turn off the computer.

    (This will only work if you messed up some settings while having the computer on, and not if you have faulty parts.)
    for me i ctrl alt deleted and accidentally ended some important processes..

    any other issues just email me at i will try to help you out. =D
