When starting up my computer I recieve a black screen that states, "Operating System Not Found." It will let me go to Set-Up, but I can't figure out how to reboot my computer using the Windows XP software and get it up and running again. ANY support, ideas, or knowledgable answers are much appreciated.

Sincerely,
BMComputer

go to BIOS setting , make HDD as the first boot device and then save and restart
There is no BIOS Setting... the only thing remotely matching that is the BIOS Revisions and there is no setting that I can change. If it helps, the kind of computer is a HP Pavilion MX50. When you said go to the BIOS Setting, you were referring to the setup menu, Correct? Please clarify for me, thank you! Once again thank you for your help!
