My wife and I have identical laptops (Dell Latitude D610)
mine seems to be fine, but the other day when she turned hers on it came up with the Error loading operating system message.
I have read through numerous threads about this and have tried the F2 and F12 keys on start up. I have also run diagnostics and there were no issues raised. I saw that it could be something to do with the Bios, but not sure what to do about that.
We are both running McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise Ver 8.5i, which is update regularly.
The laptop is mainly used for accounts using Excel 2003. The problem seems to be very random as the laptop was working fine in the day, it was shut down as normal and then a few hours later when it was rebooted the message came up.
I do not have any windows disks or recovery disks, which makes me feel a little stupid now. Is there anything you can suggest to me that is specific to this type of problem.
I hope you can help
