    My son tried to clean up his laptop and did a disk compression on it and now it will not come back on. He keeps getting the following error code: OCSMY is compressed, hit ctrl/alt/del to reboot. It gives the same code with each reboot. It is a toshiba running Windows 7.

    Are you sure that's the exact error message ? I ask because I can't find anything about it with Google.

    What OS is on the laptop ? Do you have any disks for it ?

    It is the exact message that comes up when you turn on the computer. I can hit F2 to bring up the bios screen or F12 for the boot option. He is running Windows 7 and doesn't have any disks for it. He bought it from a friend. It has worked fine for months. He ran disk compression to speed up the computer and save space and then got this problem.
    I also tried to google it and could find nothing.
