Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
When I try to turn on my comp, at about 95% of booting up it stops and goes to a screen that says no bootable devices. I ran a test via the boot up menu and it says it can't detect a hard drive. What'd I do?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
This is an indication of a very near to fail hard disk. Might I suggest that while it could still be read even occasionally to try and backup you files immediately to a thumb/flashdrive. Thereafter it is a matter of replacing the hard disk (now's the chance to put in something bigger), partitioning to your preference, formating and installing a fresh copy of the Windows of your choice. Often these laptops do have a recovery CD that may be used to ease the transition.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
