    ME sould be on the computer. And nothing really happend. All I did was download Star Craft off Kazaa-lite, and then burned it to a CD. Then I turned off my computer, with the cd still in it. A few hours later I started it up and it couldnt find my hard drive.

    I took the CD out, and tried rebooting but it came up with "Operating system not found on any devices. Press any key to try again."

    edit: have u looked in bios and the boot sequence is correct and your drive configured
    I dunno what that is...

    u have to press a ke when your compiter is booting, on my laptop its f10 and my other computer its the delete key, it should say what key it is. then there should be a bit about boot sequence, and also one about auto detecting drives

    It just says "Compaq" for a couple seconds then it goes to the,"Operating system not found on any devices. Press any key to try again." screen. Before when I would start up after the compaq thing it would say stuff about the computer, like the RAm and stuff. But it doesnt now. Oh, and Igot it to a dos prompt, can anyone help me get thru taht into my normal stuff?

    if u got into a dos prompt, which u can do by booting from bootdisk and start computer minimal. goto your c drive by typing "C:/" then enter.
    then type "dir" and hit enter, it nshould list the contents of the drive,
    if that doesnt work then u may have lost everything, if it comes up error reading drive, then u may have drive problems?
