hello, i have an old pc which is an E-Machine 430, running Windows XP.  It needed a new powerpack.  However, after putting this powerpack in i get a message Operating System Not Found!  Can anyone shed any light on this for me?  it is a very old PC.  You're my last resort.  Thanks in advance.


I can get into Safemode!  is there anyway i can sort my pc out doing this?  Im not very computer savvy but i appreciate any help.  Thank you!

What do you mean by "power pack"?
If you meant power supply, you may not of plugged the cables into your hard drive, which is why it can't find your OS.

What do you men by you can get Into "safe mode"?
I think you am bye confusing safe mode with your bios.
It wouldn't be possible to get into "safe mode" if your machine cannot find Windows...
