In this case you need to repair your OS. You need to insert the OS which is a bootable disk, in case of net book you need to connect a USB with OS loaded in it and select boot from USB in bios, for entering in bios you need to press the F 2 button while restarting the computer.

Did you buy the notebook with an operating system (Windows) preinstalled?

Sometimes you just get the hardware and need to install the operating systems yourself.

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
