Compaq Contura Aero 4/25

Specs: Windows XP, 1.8 GHZ
Hello,

I recently purchased a Compaq Contura Aero
4/25 just to have a play with. When I turn the
computer on the HDD makes a few noises
then it diplays the RAM, then the PCMCIA
Floppy drive makes one small noise and a
message comes up saying "Non-system disk
or disk error" when I press any key with a
floppy in it it does nothing at all it just keeps
on displaying the message, Any help on this
would be greatly appreciated,

thankyou

Start with a DOS boot disk.

You want to see if there's any data on the hdd. From your description, sounds like the hdd might be dead though.

Read through the Related Posts...been a bunch of 4/25's on these forums in the past years.

The floppy drive isn't reading any floppy disk inserted, I tried
DOS, windows 3.11, 95 boot disks
