Operating system not found on my laptop

\015 When i boot up my laptop i am getting the error message, "operating system not found." Can you please give me advice on what to do to fix my laptop?\015

Answers :

Ok i have had this problem.. (my computer would show the loading screen with all of the commands at the bottom. after this it would not boot up, but show a message on a black screen saying "operating system not found")
\015\012I completly tore down the laptop and making sure i had no issues with anything. so here is what i did that is simple and ended up solving the issues 3 times in a row.
\015\012
\015\0121. take the cover off for the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop ( shows 3 very small disks beside each screw)
\015\012
\015\0122. grab the clear strip that is on the hard drive and pull out the hard drive. ( blow out where it connects on the right side if dirty)
\015\012
\015\0123. Reconnect the hard drive this will reset it.
\015\012
\015\0124. Make sure to change back the processes to defaults when the computer starts back up.. If you fail to do so you will have to repeat the process each time you turn off the computer.
\015\012
\015\012(This will only work if you messed up some settings while having the computer on, and not if you have faulty parts.)
\015\012for me i ctrl alt deleted and accidentally ended some important processes..
\015\012
\015\012any other issues just email me at [email protected] i will try to help you out. =D
Not a good message. This means that your system is unable to find the boot info on your hard disk to startup. This could indicate: 1) A failed hard disk 2) A corrupt boot record (can sometimes be reset by running fdisk /mbr 3) Drive setup in bios incorrectly an or error in the cmos setup of the drive.
\015\012I would suggest you find a friend who knows a little about computers to help you further with this issue...
\015\012
\015\012If you need more info, feel free to contact me...
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps!
