So my laptop will not simply start. It shows a quick start up but then hits a black screen with explaining "No Operating System can be found". I'am new to computer repair and diagnosis so this is a good project and experience for me. If anyone can help out I would heavily appreciate it. I took some pictures to show what the problem is. I have a pic of the BIOS setup also, so I was wondering if the setup was in proper order.

Hi

 

From the pictures you posted it seems that hard disk is not detected. It is time to replace the HDD. Rarely this can be happen due to connectivity issues. So try removing and reinserting the HDD first.

Ok I'll try that out. Is it possible to use one of my other laptops and switch the HDD's and check if a new HDD is the solution?

Hi

 

Yes, you can swap the HDD for testing. But please note that, Windows may failed to boot if both laptop's configurations are different. At least you can confirm the original one is faulty.
