  1. It sounds like your windows installation is damaged or your hard disk is malfunctioning. Does the hard disk appear in your BIOS menu? Hit the F2 key and see if a hard disk is detected.
  2. It says hard dis drive 0: 160GB and hard dish drive1: 160GB

    yes its their but I dont know what to do
  4. What version of Windows is this?

    Insert a Windows disk and try and run the repair utilities.

    On second thought, it could also be a hardware malfunction lingering. Do you have anything attached to the machine? If so, disconnect it.
  5. I dont have a windows disk and nothing is connected to my laptop.
  6. You can torrent a copy of a windows disk. Make sure you get your appropriate version. If your PC came with windows installed from a manufacturer, get an OEM copy, else get a retail copy.
