    Hello Tam23, and welcome to TSG.

    If you have truly tried everything known to mankind, then I don't think anyone here can offer anything new. If you wish to share what you have tried and didn't work, then someone here may have a suggestion or two.

    In the meantime ...

    1) Are you able to get into the BIOS settings? If so, does the hard drive show up?

    2) My information shows this is an older laptop that came with Windows 7 installed on the hard drive. How did you upgrade to Windows 10?

    EDIT: Since this is an older laptop, lunarlander, does bring up a valid point that the drive just could have failed from years of use.

    I Did The Bootable Usb Thing
    I Did The Command Prompt Thing With Diskpart And All that And Nothing Works.. Or Maybe I Just Did It Wrong

    OK, did you use a bootable USB drive to install Windows 10 in the first place and/or attempt to fix the "operating system not found error"?

    The command prompt function being available within Windows would mean that the computer did find an operating system and was able to boot from it. If you booted DOS or Windows from a USB drive, then there is a good chance that using Diskpart on the hard drive would have removed Windows from it.

    You have not specifically answered my Question #1.
