    HP Pavillion laptop won't boot up - says there is no OS?

    Hi everyone. I've stuck this on this forum because it kinda involves installing issues with Windows (namely the fact that I had Windows and now it's clearly saying I don't have that or any OS) but if it's in the wrong place, let me know where to put this instead. I have a HP Laptop that's been...
