A couple of possibilities

by wgraham969 In reply to operating system not foun ...

First--and simplest--if the laptop has a 3.5" floppy drive, check to make sure there's not a diskette inadvertently left in the drive.

Second possibility--and gnarliest--is the likelihood of a non-op hard drive.

Different BIOS have different configurations and options, but you want to make sure that that the BIOS actually points to your hard drive as your boot device.

Without knowing more details, it's difficult to give a more extensive answer, but maybe this will set you on the right road.
