I have been given a Sony laptop from a friend which has developed several faults however if they can be fixed it will be a good laptop to use so I am trying to fix them.
The problem is that it keeps getting the error message "Operating System Not Found" or something along those lines.
I have a Fujitsu laptop so tried the HD from that and got the same error message but when I put the Sony one in my laptop something at least came up like start windows normally. (it needs formatting and a new os installing so that is not a problem) So although mixing brands is not the best way to go it at least "reads" more than it does in the Sony one which did not take either.
Therefore would it be something to do with the SATA connectors etc?
There are some other problems such as the power button takes two or three presses to boot the machine and show something on the laptop but hopefully they are not related and can be fixed after the HD one.
Thanks for your help not sure if this is the right place to put it.
