I turned on my computer this morning, to find a BLACK SCREEN with the following message:
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
The problem I have is I don't have a system disk. Is there anything I can do to get this computer working again. The warranty has long ago expired. HELP....Please
Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
Sorry, but I don't have very good news for you ...
That error message, on a older XP-era PC, most likely means the hard drive has failed.
To check that, press the Esc key repeatedly while rebooting. That should bring up an HP utilities menu.
When you see that, press the key indicated in the menu to run hard disk diagnostics.
Report back here what the diagnostics find.
We can proceed when you provide the information.Thanks
