Hello,
On my older Gateway Solo 2500 the message Operating System Not Found appears on startup. the notebook worked fine one day and the next this message. can it be saved or can I connect the HD to my desktop to retrieve the data and programs that I have on the notebooks HD?

Hello,

If you want to, we can check your laptop is or isn't still "dead" and make a back-up of your files.

If you want to try, you need 15 minutes, a CDR and a cd writer.
Is your laptop able to boot on cd?
Do you know how to acces to bios and change the boot order?

Do you have a Cd of your OS ?(XP, I suppose)

Tell me if you're ok to try.

See you.
