First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

SOURCE: NO BOOTABLE DEVICE ,INSERT BOOT DISK

Generally this is an indication that your hard drive has gone bad, and is no longer visible to the computer. If your still under warranty, call Acer for service; if not, either order and replace the Hard Drive, or take it to a local shop, and they should be able to help you.

In this type of situation, chance are that the drive has died in such a manor that you won't be able to recover any data from it, but you could always ask the shop to try.

SOURCE: no boot disc

Yes bunnydawg could be indeed correct. Although also make sure you don't have a flash drive, external hard drive, or any CD/DVD left in the drive first. As they could try to boot from the device and fail (because they are not setup and formatted as bootable) and it will report the very same message.

SOURCE: my acer aspire one says no bootable device

This sounds awful, but a friend just had the same problem - no bootable device. He had dropped it, hitting keyboard first. Now he thumped it on the opposite side and IT WORKED! Must have been a loose connector

SOURCE: my acer aspire 4810t says no bootable device

enter BIOS - you will see a mesage when you first turn on laptop tellign you to press a key to enter setup. Do this and make sure HDD is listed. if it is, you might have todo a recovery.

Turn on laptop, then immediatly press ALT + F10 keep finger on ALT and press F10 a few times, this will start the recovery process. some ask if you want to re-install windows or full factory reset. Windows install will only repair it - full factory reset will delete any data you have! so be careful

Acer aspire 5253 error message no botable device after laptop was dropped on carpet


No bootable device suggests that your Acer Aspire hard disk may have been damaged when the computer was dropped.
You should try opening the cover on the base of the laptop where the hard drive is fitted and check to make sure that the drive is seated firmly and has not come loose with the drop. See the Acer Aspire 5253 Quick Start Guide for the location of the drive cover.
If reseating the drive does not help, then you would need to find any recovery discs that you may have made or received with the laptop plus need to buy and install a replacement hard drive.

When I turn on my laptop it goes to a black screen that tells me... Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller...


based the message that you encounter, it may pertain to boot priority or to BIOS configuration.

My recommendation is for you to access and reset the BIOS settings on your computer.

It's boots up and show the acer home screen then turns black and says t press f2 but nothing happens


It's having problems looking for a bootable media ( like optical drive, harddrive, bootable flash drive).
Try these steps:
  1. Unplug any external devices, including memory cards.
  2. Turn of the computer, remove the ac adapter & battery, then hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the ac adapter and battery. Turn it back on.
  3. Set the first boot device to harddrive
If problem still persist, please revert back to me or call an authorized Acer technician
