Operating System error message

Q: Operating System error message

When I start XP and try to boot into regular mode I receive an quot Operating System not found quot message after the black red quot COMPAQ quot screen and when I try to boot into Safe Mode it just restarts without that System Operating error message message Here's what preceded this I downloaded a program called ivx which I downloaded to watch mov files on Windows Media Player Not long after installing it Comodo popped up with the regular Internet Explorer quot Allow-Deny quot message it usually does when something wants to access the internet and Operating System error message it was in relation to vix It had the Operating System error message x in the message it usually has when it's suspicious of a program's intention Sorry I forget exactly what the message was I clicked Deny and afterward couldn't connect to the internet with IE I clicked Allow when it popped up again shortly after and was able to access it just fine A while afterward I saw an icon of an exclamation point in a yellow triangle in the Taskbar which I couldn't right or left click I was about to shut down some programs to reboot and then the computer froze I turned it off manually and when I turned it back on I got the message mentioned in the first paragraph I'm not sure if vix had anything to do with it but I figured it was important to mention anyway since it was preceding this problem

Preferred Solution: Operating System error message

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Operating System error message

3vix might have had a cause in this but if your computer says No Operating System found then you will have to re-install your operating system. Find your Recovery CD and re-install Windows

my son switched on his laptop and got the error message.....I tried to press F8 but still says operating system not found....pressed F2 and it shows the BIOS Information with correct processsor and CPU Type and the time is running correctly......I checked to see if any connections loose...left battery off for a while but nothing......Any ideas as to why this would suddenly come up as not had any changes made to laptop for a good while and he was using it fine before he went out today....weird

A:operating system not found error message

The two most obvious answers would be that there is a DVD in the drive, which would prevent normal boot
The second is that the Hard drive has failed.
There are of course other possiblities, but those are the first two that come to mind.
There are of course many other possiblities , a few are:
MBR has become corrupt
The partion has become corrupt. This will require data recovery software.

I can solve this for you but my solution may lose all your stuff
Do you have stuff you want to save?

Hello all, am quite new here, please bear with me if I ask a question that has already been answered; and please direct me as appropriate if you can. Thank you.
My Samsung mini laptop ( netbook) , model: NP-N150, running on windows 7 starter, bring up the following message on booting. " operating system not found".
How do I have it restored to normal functions, since it has no CD ROM for me to run the recovery disk that came with it.
I am actually hopeful that there is a way out without loosing my documents and files on the system, how may I do this?
On entering the BIOS using F2, I can't find the HDD.
Any help on creating a recovery sticky disk(USB disk) to solve this problem so I can at least back up my files first before anything?
Thank you all, for making here a place to be.

A:Error message on start up - Operating System not found

Hi,
I know I don't have all of the answers for you but the fact that the system isn't finding the HDD might indicate that the HDD has died. If this is the case then only a new HDD will return the computer to operational status. As for the files on that drive it may or may not be possible to recover some or all of them.
If you know a technician you trust I'd talk with that peron and see what sort of time and $$ are involved in replacing the HDD and recovering your data.
Keep us posted

Would anybody happen to know what this error message is referring to or what I should do about? It unfortunately and unhelpfully doesn't say aything else. It only has the option to click OK which just closes the pop up box. Its been popping up randomly the past several times i've used the laptop. I originally thought it was because there were still updates to run and thought it would rectify after running these but its re-appeared again. It doesnt say what application it relates or any further options to address the problem?? Would send a screen print but not sure how? I've not had this laptop long at all (around 2 months) and would not expect to be getting problems like this already! Any help appreciated Thanks in advance

I am running Windows Vista on a HP laptop that I bought in July 2008 (Windows was pre-loaded), and I haven't downloaded any additional service packs.

My computer was running fine, I hadn't installed any new software recently, or installed any new hardware. When a program was running a bit slow, I went ahead and restarted just to clear up any problems. When it restarted, it tried to boot at least 5 times, and gave me the error message that it couldn't find the operating system.

One of my friends has told me, and from what I can gather, that I need to try to boot from a disk, and then reset the MBR. However, I can't find where to get a boot disk from, and what exactly I should do next.

Any help???

A:During Boot Error Message: 'Can't find Operating System'.

The problem you're experiencing is indeed related to the MBR is you have uninstalled and installed software and hardware (which, I would like to get a list of so I can further elaborate).

Here's a good website for bootdisks.

Also, when booting press F12 and boot into your HDD instead of your CD/DVD or Network (if they're set for some..strange reason..).

I just recently bought Dell XPS 8900 with Windows 10 installed.  I installed couple of applications including Security software, MS Office 2016, Adobe Light Room. The computer came with a solid state drive configured as Drive C.  When I first installed software it automatically installed on the solid state drive which quickly filled up.  Then I was told to install the Office-365 on the Hard Drive configured as Drive I. So I uninstalled Office, and reinstalled it on Drive I.  Somewhere along this, I started getting this error message "The Operating System is presently not configured to run this application".  Also, it seems that the performance of brand new computer has slowed down a bit.  What is going on?  What did I do wrong?  Can you please help fixing this?

A:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

Hey all! I am pretty new to this kind of Win7 issues, so I hope some of you will be able to help. Story goes...

After few hours of gaming the computer died. (It happened right after switching keyboards.) Now, on every setup BIOS(?) comes up with list of options (F2 enter BIOS, F11 boot options, F6 Flash etc.). After that a black screen with error message comes up: Missing Operating System.

I tried rebooting from USB (since I have no disk-drive) and I keep on getting the answer: Error Loading Operating System.

Any ideas?

Thx
 

A:Missing Operating System/Error Loading Operating System

All unlikely, but possible - (a) your HDD died. (b) your bios became corrupted (c) your HDD boot sector became corrupted (d) your HDD partition is corrupted.

Does the drive spin up when you switch on (feel it)?
Check the bios to see if the HDD is reported correctly and is at the top of the boot order.
Find a bootable CD - an OS installer, or create Easeus partition manager bootable CD http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm and boot from it. What does the HDD look like with Easueus?

A:Operating System Not Found message

This could be trying to show that you might be havng a hard drive problem. I would suggest to backup all of your important data as soon as possible like right now to another media like CD-R's, DVD or thumb drive.

You say you have a Compaq, did you take the time to make the recovery disk(s)? If not I suggest doing that right away.

The next thing I would do right after that is to defragment the drive and then reboot.

Also if you visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hard drive they more than likely have some software that will help diagnose the drive I would suggest downloading that and running it.

I have a Sony Vaio Model PCG-71511L. I did a factory restore on it so I can sell it and have am no longer able to get it to start up. I went into my Bios and it shows my hard-drive. I have tried to get my recovery discs to start it up but they don't do anything. Any suggestions?

A:No operating system message at start-up

How did you do the Factory Restore? Did you use Restore Discs or did you access a Restore Partition?
Boot into Setup (Bios) and go to Boot Priority and change CD rom drive to be the First Boot Device. Start the computer with your restore discs in and you should see the message, Press Any Key to Boot From CD.

Hello guys.
I just erased my whole disk drive and I created a single unpartitioned space to my hard drive using GParted(http://gparted.org) usb stick (which proves that this system can boot from usb).
The problem is that whenever I try to boot from my usb drive (fat32) to try either windows 10 technical preview or windows 8.1 the system bypass the usb stick and displays the message Missing Operating System (because it arrives at the 3rd boot option, the internal hard drive - 1st is external device and 2nd is the optical disk).
Any ideas?
Thank you.

Hi anyone that can help me

I have had my comp for a few years now an never had this silly problem till now!
I switch on comp and I get the option of pressing f2 or f8 and when I press them I don't understand what to do next....I am not too well advanced in computers! My machine is a Packard bell with intel pent 4, on windows vista (home premium) I think.

I can't afford to buy any fancy software etc so I just need to know my best option. The only thing that I have is a recovery disc 1 that I downloaded when I bought the comp I don't recall any other discs.

I would really appreciate any help.

I bought my son a computer with Vista (home basic I think) installed on it for school. Today he finally hooked it up to his cable for internet. After signing on he gets an "operating system or browser not supported" message. He spent over an hour on the phone with his Internet company, but they still couldn't figure it out. What is causing this? I'm assuming it has nothing to do with his isp (cox communications). Thanks.

I was using my wife's Toshiba M45 Satellite laptop (XP) while away on vacation. After finishing I closed the window. Some time later I returned and the only thing on the screen was the message "Missing operating system". All my/her icons are gone. Subsequent boots result in the same message as already stated aboe. What should we do? Call a lawyer?

A:[SOLVED] Missing Operating System Message

A lawyer will tell you to call a computer tech. It sounds like either your boot file is corrupted or your HDD has failed. Restart the computer, and boot into Setup (Bios) See if the HDD is listed here. If not, try removing the HDD and pushing it back in. If it is listed in the Bios. On another computer download the ISO image for Seatools in my signature, burn the image to CD using IMGburn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created disc in the troubled computer. Run the Short and Long tests on the drive, if either fails, the HDD needs to be replaced.

A while back, I swapped HDs in my two computers; that did not work at all, so I reinstalled the HDs in the respective computers. One has been working well since, the other one (the HP Pavilion 511n) now gets the following message on start-up: ?Operating System not found?. I found that when I do ?control-alt-delete?, the system starts and Windows XP works just fine. The only problem is that to get my computer working, I need to do ?ctrl-alt-del? everytime. Is there a way to correct the problem? Thanks.

Shut down PC last night, all working perfectly. Today it won't boot with the "missing operating system" message. Have booted from Windows 7 installation disc, tried startup recovery - took 2 hours before reporting no automatic fix possible. It cannot find an installed Windows OS to do a system restore, so I attempted a "custom" clean re-install. However, I then get a "canot create system partition or find existing one" error message. I have tried to create a "New" one but nothing doing. I don't seem to have any HDD drivers to point to either.

I have two 500GB Western Digital WD5000 drives but that's all I know.

Can anyone help? Do I need fo reformat the C: drive?

Many thanks.

A:Cloning a hdd in XP new drive gets message Missing Operating System

So you cloned the 250GB to 500GB. So does the 500GB have XP on it or are you just using it as a additional storage. You might want to do that. Leave the 250GB as the Primary C: then have the 500GB as archive media storage. There you can have all your music, pictures, music for Media Center 2005. This way you don't have to clone the HDD.

C: 250GB (OS/Programs/MCE)

Hi all,

Installed a DVDRW drive but comp crashed when installing some software and it stopped detecting my Primary Master and Slave drives. I've fiddled about with the Master and Slave configs and have managed to get it to detect my HD and DVDROM.

I've unplugged my DVDRW and my small HDD and am trying to get windows to load up.

After using FDISK /MBR an rebooting, I get "Missing Operating System".

Tried installing Windows XP after formatting, it seems to have installed but it's not loading.

Current config:

Slave: Pioneer DVDROM (not the DVDRW)
Master: Seagate 80GB (C: = 15GB) & (D: = 61GB).

D: has files on there that I'd like to recover. Too big to put on floppy.

I've run a search for similar problems and tried some of the solutions but no good. Any ideas? Thanks

Try disconnecting the hard drive and the CD-drive alternately and going into bios. If you can't with the cd-rom is installed, the cd-rom is probably bad. If you can't with the hard drive installed, look for a new hard drive... Freezing could also be indicative of a memory problem.

Either a corrupted MBR or a failing hard drive can cause that error message. I would suggest ;

I had plopped in my Windows Vista 64 bit Recovery CD and it booted up right up to the part of the loading screen and then it went black.

I'm just stuck there now.

Was there any indication why the system crashed?

Hey everyone, I am new here and have a huge problem with my computer. I have a gateway computer that is 2.5 year old. I am running Window XP home version. I have spyware by webroot, cox security suite, agv anti-virus. My computer has been working fine until this morning. I used the computer last night and everything worked fine. I shut the computer off went to bed. When I woke up this morning and turned it on and it runs for about 5 seconds and I get a black screen with the message "Error Loading Operating System". It does not bring up the gateway screen or anything before I get the error message. I have the XP disk if needed. Also everything on the computer is already backed up.

My computer appears to be running perfectly normal apart from the fact
that whenever I try to restore a partition, clone a drive or attempt
do a clean install, it will not boot and I get the message saying, error
loading operating system. It can't be the hard drives because it
happens even with my brand new hard drive. If the drive I'm using
boots perfectly and I clone it to another drive, surely they are both
exactly the same. So why will the newly cloned drive not boot?

A:Error Loading Operating System

Because the new drive isn't exactly the same as the old one (even "identical" drives aren't the same).
But, I don't think that this relates directly to your problem (since a clean install wouldn't suffer from this issue).

Could you describe what you're trying to do in a bit more detail so we can start troubleshooting it at the appropriate level?

One day I booted my PC and got the error message

Verifying DMI Pool Data...
Error loading operating system.

I entered the BIOS (Mercury Motherboard) and chose the "Load Fail safe defaults settings" and XP booted successfully but when I'm choosing "Load optimized defaults", I get the same error message again.

A technician told me to run the system on fail safe defaults only as there is no need for optimized defaults but I was not satisfied. He told me that the HDD in which Windows is installed has some problem so I should either get the HDD changed or install Windows in another HDD. I just wanted another opinion from the TSF team on this matter. Please advice me.

A:Error loading Operating System

yes that would indicate a hdd problem.

go to command prompt and chkdsk /r and let chkdsk do its thing.

Also download the hard drive manufacturers diagnostic utility and run that.

If you have the xp disk put in the drive and from the run box type sfc/ scannow this will install any corrupt or missing windows files again.

A:Random Operating System Error

Well...you need to physically remove the card...but, more importantly, you need to uninstall the drivers and software which accompany that card.
 
But...i don't think this is a problem...your hard shutdowns do more damage each time that you do such...it's common for system files to become damaged during/by such...and that includes files used to boot the system.
 
I suggest running the chkdsk /r command, as a start.
 
Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.  Type Y in new screen, hit Enter.  Reboot...the command will execute before attempting to boot into Windows.

Hi Mazuli,
Is the OS installed?
If you have a boot disk with fdisk on it boot from it. At command prompt type fdisk /MBR
Then hit enter.
This will clear ther old mbr and make a new one. When finished try rebooting and see what happens. You can get fdisk from fdisk.com if you need it.

It is odd that the Windows disk does not work. Could be scratches on the disk. Is the disk a genuine copy?

My prime concern is that I have a lot of data on my hard drive [stupidly only partly backed up - I know!!!] and I'm really worried about losing it.Rightly so, but who among us have not been caught in this situation?Without addressing your original issue, I just want to speak to getting the data off of the hard drive. You could always remove the hard drive and install it in another computer as a 'slave' drive. The working computer should still boot up from the 'good' Master hard drive, and then you will be able to navigate (start > my computer) to the slave drive and recover your data. More info on how to install a second drive can be found HERE.But of course, if you need help with this or any other procedure you can just ask for help here and we can explain it in more detail or refer to somewhere on the web where it will be explained more fully.

Hello Sudarmani, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if running a startup repair may be able to help. Sometimes it may take running it a few times though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi there,
I own a DELL Dimension 4600C, and I had a trouble with it last week. I got the message for "Unmountable Boot". I misplaced my original Windows XP Pro CD, so I used my friend's bootable XP CD, and try to check disk. I followed instructions on the Microsoft website, nothing worked until I made bootable floppies and tried to repair the system. It wouldn't complete the repairing and always went back to the blue screen with the unmountable boot error.

I decided to reformat, so I deleted the partition and tried to install the new windows. It took way too long to delete the partition, and at the end I received a message indicating can't be completed ( I can't recall the reason).After that, I keep getting black screen with error of loading operating system.

Any guidence or help to resolve this problem will be really appreicated.

Thanks

Welcome to TSF,


Download and run the drive manufacturer’s utilities If the drive passes diagnostics, use the utility to wipe or zero the drive and try the install again. Sounds like remnants of the old install are preventing the new install

So you restart and immediately start pressing F10 a bunch of times and can't get to the BIOS?
Do you hear any beeps?

I have a compaq presario cq61-340sa laptop which I bought in the UK many years ago. I now live in Australia. I get 'error operating loading system' when I turn laptop on and no other function can be done. I think it's Windows 64 but it could be 34 I have no idea, and as I cannot get into the computer I am not sure how I would find out.can someone please help. I think I may need some recovery discs. If this is the case does anyone know how I would get them or  who to contact  in the UK. Anyone have an email or phone number that would help me?As I assume I would not be able to get them  In Australia for a laptop bought in the Uk.

I recently got the message "error loading operating system". My computer was working fine, so I have no idea what is causing it. I left my comp in standby mode and when I went back to it several hours later it was completely turned off (which leads me to believe one of my roommates turned it off by pressing the power button on the comp itself). When I turned it back on it gave me the error message, but when I hit F12 during start up and select "primary master" startup it wil work perfectly. Whenever I try to restart it keeps giving me the error. Does anyone know why my comp will only work under these conditions. Any help will be appreciated.

Check you BIOS setting and make sure your machine is set to boot from the C: drive. Also you might want to run a scan disk. Goto My Computer > Right click on C: drive > left click properties > click tools > then under error-checking click check now > check both the boxes at the top. Next time your computer reboots it will check the intergirty of the c drive. Let us know what you find.

Hello everyone I had Windows Vista on a WD Velociraptor GB Then I got a WD Velociraptor GB and put Windows on it So two Operating Systems on two separate hard drives Normally after my BIOS screen a menu loads asking if I want to boot Windows or Windows Operating Error System Loading Vista Vista was the C drive was the F drive It worked gloriously for several months But now the pain has begun The sound on my computer was very quiet one day Everything seemed set correctly so I decided to try a restart During the restart when it reached the black Windows screen it seemed to freeze I restarted the computer again After the BIOS screen where I would normally be asked what OS I want it instead says quot Error Loading Operating System quot And now that is the message I get every time I try to restart my computer -Both hard drives are listed by my BIOS Error Loading Operating System -If I disconnect or disable only the GB drive I get quot Error Loading Operating System quot -If I disconnect or disable only the GB drive I get quot Error Loading Operating System quot -I have not been able to locate my Windows Vista CD yet although I probably could if it were the likely solution -I located my Windows CD I booted from the disc with only the GB drive and CD drive enabled in the BIOS I went to the quot Repair your computer quot In the System Recover Options screen there are no operating systems listed I don t have a system image to restore from so I select quot User recovery tools quot anyways I run the Startup Repair option but it doesn t seem to help If I run Windows Memory Diagnostic it says quot Windows cannot check for memory problems quot quot An error is preventing Windows from checking for memory problems during startup Although it seems to run the memory diagnostic tests when I try Startup Repair If I select Command Prompt and type quot FIXBOOT quot or quot fixboot quot it says it s not a recognized command I m wondering if it might be a non-hard-drive hardware issue since both HDs seem to have been affected simultaneously I didn t use the Vista drive much but I could always see it listed as the C drive whenever I opened an Explore window which was quite frequently Perhaps the motherboard is shot But that would be a gigantic pain to replace so hopefully it s something else I don t care too much about the Vista installation at this point Although I d definitely like to get my installation back intact Does anyone have any ideas -Ben
