Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

When booting up my laptop, it says, "operating system not found"...how do i get it back?

Answers :

"it was fine friday when i left work...boss's came in yesterday and it was giving them that message then"

If you left your laptop on for most of the weekend, it could have overheated the system and cooked the drive.
It is not a good practice to leave any computer on for extended periods without being used. (unless it is in a server room)
You need to reinstall your operating system. If you don't have the CD, call your laptop manufacturer.
