I get the message


I do not have any disks in my drives; when I try to boot up my system however, I get the message "Non-system or disk error; replace and strike key."

I have tried booting through the floppy drive, arriving in Drive A, but although I have used SCANDISK, I still have the same problem. Please help.

Thank you

Since you stated you tried the floppy.

There may be a physical problem with the hard drive itself, rather than the floppy.

If you recently worked in your computer or have moved your computer recently a cable for the hard drive might have been loosen Make sure the cables to all the components in your computer are properly connected
