    2007 built RELIC grade PC now 13 year old.
    the HDD is bad. end story.
    new HDD + new OS and now it boots.
    or the RTC coin cell went bad.
    the COin cell bad makes the BIOS GO NUTS.
    and with BIOS nuts can not boot any thing at all or for sure not reliably,
    learn that this battery lasts 7 years max (spec) life. time.
    we always check the coin first or we go broke fast and waste all day looking like puppy chasing its tail.

    hint: below 2.9vdc is bad, 3.3v par.

    1: coin cell battery dead, stops list .
    2: HDD bad, most are bad after 5years, hard proof I have.
    3: test the HDD first, using smart app.
    4: if drive good make sure it is first in BOOT order in BIOS.
    5: if still fails reload the OS to that drive.

    lots more, can fail, but above is prime.

Good Day

This sounds like you have lost your HDD or if you have just installed a new HDD this will be the message until you install an operating system.

Kind Regards

Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.

Try flashing the bios, which is found as step 3 on the flowing website. here.
If that does not work, make sure the connectors are not damaged, and ensure that all internal components, especially power cables, are properly seated.

On the back of the Power Supply there should be a Green LED, When you power it on if it is flashing, this means that the Power Supply is dead and you need to replace it.

Computer won't boot. Message says Operating system not found. Tried Ctrl Alt Del and turning it off. What else can I try?

Hi there, My Toshiba had this in the users manual in all programs.As you start your Toshiba press the zero key at the same time.You can also buy a disk from Toshiba.You have to go into setup and change the boot order so that CD ROM is first in line in order to boot from a CD.Choose quick format.and follow the prompts.Do not chose repair and keep the same partition size.There will be a small partition for Toshiba stuff so just leave it there.Good luck and Thank You for choosing FixYa......................Darryel

None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

I get a black screen that say: Realtek PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller Series v2.26 (090219) PXE-E61 media Test Failure check cable ****-MOF: Exiting PxE ROM No Bootable device- insert boot disk...

Apparently, the HDD has failed, that's why it doesn't find a bootable device and you can't restore te factory settings. You can try getting Hiren's Boot CD and use the testing tools to scan and fix the drive. Sometimes it just gets corrupted and returns to RAW format and just needs a format ( unfortunately you will lose all your data).

How do i format my laptop off of the partition on the hard drive. I've managed to hit f 10 and get into the bios but no format option was given

Formatting the hard drive is not a function of the BIOS. You will need to boot the machine from either the Windows CD and do a fresh setup (which will give you the option to format the hard drive) or boot from a bootable CD or floppy disk that has the format command on it. From there you execute the format command and follow the directions.

I am trying to format c: and erase everything on that drive i dont have a boot disk however just the windows xp pro disk and i cant remember how to get into command prompt

You can't format the drive while Windows is running. Insert the CD, reboot, and follow the prompts to delete and re-add the main partition, then do a Quick format.
