  1. I have a BIG problem with my laptop, it doesnt load my operating system!

    I have a laptop and it was working perfectly fine until I turned it off recently!!

    I turned it back on and it came up with a message saying:

    ''non-system disk or disk error; Replace and strike any key when ready''

    When I did go into bios, it didnt give me an option where my laptop hard drive could do a self test, when it should have.


    SOMEONE PLEASE...............HELP!!!..................!!!!

    Does anyone know what I am talking about? If so, please help.

    There are several possibilities:

    The connection to the hard drive could have come loose.

    The hard drive went bad.

    Is the bios detecting the hard drive?

    Boot from the recovery disk to see if it detects an operating system. If so do a startup repair.

    Thank you very much. That was a nice instruction. My laptop is now back to normal.
