That means it is unable to see your harddrive. Unlike a tower computer a laptops harddrive plugs straight into the motherboard this cannot be a cable fault.
Either the harddrive has died or the motherboards drive controller has gane bad.
You will need to seek profesional help to deal with this, the only thing you can do your self would be to swap the harddrive with another and see if you get a Windows stop message, your machine would not be able to start the Windows of another machine because of hardware differences, but if you got a Windows error message at least it would tell you if your harddrive was dead or not.

OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND IS THE MESSAGE. HOW DO I ADD A SYSTEM?


This is usually indicative of your hard drive failing or the connection has come adrift.

The operating system, is usually windows, normally loaded on a pc when purchased. If you've purchased second hand, one of the usual practices is to remove the hard drive (and operating system) to protect personal data.

If there is a hard drive in place, you can buy a copy of windows, a friend may lend you a copy, but you will also need a code of authority (6 groups of 5 characters)to install it properly.

Alternatively you can get or download a "Linux" based operating system such as Ubuntu for free.

Operating system not found


That error message just indicates that the syswtem tried to do a network boot and couldn't since it did not detect an Ethernet cable connected to the port. Apparently your hard disk has died and needs to be replaced or your BIOS settings have changed and your hard disk is no longer in the boot order. Check your BIOS settings to confirm.

Hi i m having Compaq TC1100 now there is error on starting that operating system not found how i do the things, this tc not having any optical drive


It's bloody hard. Take it to a PC repair shop. I've just done it with a TC1000 (previous model) and it takes a good 3 hours + some extra equipment/software.
