Today when i tried to turn on my computer it wouldnt load. It stopped on the started screen and at the bottom it said 'No HPA enabled drive, Press any key to boot'. After doing that it then says 'boot disk failure insert system disk and press enter'. I put in my 'Windows XP professional' disk ,pressed enter and nothing happened. Could you please help me, im also not a computer pro. so step by step, detailed instructions would be nice

If you check THIS THREAD, which is a bit long at three pages, but if you read through it you'll see that the poster has a simlar issue to you (search for HPA on the first page and go from there).

If you follow those steps, can you see if that helps you at all?
