    I've got a problem with my brothers laptop.

    It is an old AMS Power CD, with win. 95. When I turn it on, it begins to boot. The screen reads:
    BIOS 1.23, CPU = Pentium 100 MHz
    640K System RAM Passed
    23552K Extended RAM Passed
    256K Cache SRAM Passed
    System BIOS Shadowed
    Video BIOS Shadowed
    Mouse Initialized

    Then in a red flashing box in the middle of the screen it reads: "Couldn't reset hard disk system Save to Disk feature is disabled"

    Then, "Operating system not found" below

    I would much appreciate any help or assistance I can find.

    I'd bet the harddrive has a loose connection or completely failed. If you don't know how to take it apart and check it take it to an expert.

    Well, I have taken the hard drive out, and the cabling seems to be in decent condition.

    On start up, it does have power but I think I'll have to consult a professional like you suggested.

    Thanks
