Having problems with your Sony VAIO SR17 Notebook ?

My system is saying "Operating system not found" now what to do ? plz help me!


Answers :

Hi,
There is one of three reasons for this:
1. Your laptop does not have an operating system installed.
2. Your laptop is trying to boot from the wrong drive
3. Your laptop does not detect the drive which contains the operating system. This could either be due to an incorrect setting in your BIOS setup or a problem with the hard drive.
Best wishes,
