Have you tried a cold start, unplug, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, replace battery, plug in try to start normally. If that fails open your laptop, remember to remove battery, and Re-Seat, remove and replace the HDD. If that fails take the HHD out and have it checked by a qualified Tech. You can get devices to connect your HHD to another computer via USB, mine is a ULTRA USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Cable Adapter. Then you can verify if in is dead.

SOURCE: won't boot from hard drive

Check the boot settings. The bios may be trying to boot the old hard drive and doesn't even see the new one. If the old hard drive was removed, the BIOS will go to the next boot device. Also, is there something on the hard drive to boot to? If it is a blank hard drive you will need to install an operating system, otherwise it will not boot.

How do I add Boot devices to Boot Menu on Acer V5-122P which only shows the internal HDD


Because this is one of the thin client laptops all you have in the laptop is a Hard drive. and other boot device is a USB device that you plug in. As such the bios will not show it until it is plugged in and then you can select it to boot from.

Whenever I turn on my laptop the screen is blank with a white dash mark flashing in the top left corner of the screen. What do I do?


That is the signal that the BIOS no longer finds an operating system installed on the hdd. All you are left to do is to reinstall it. Use the recovery disk that came with it.

Sir my laptop is does not start. error ir operating system not found.


If the laptop does not find the operating system on boot up it's ether the HDD has failed or the Operating system is corrupt the only answer is to reinstall the operating system or change the HDD.
You could try getting into the Bios on boot up normally by pressing F12 after pressing the power on button and checking if the laptop is seeing the HDD.
I say F12 but without knowing the laptop model it's a guess.
It should tell you on the boot up screen which function key to press to enter the Bios.
Once in the Bios check to see if the HDD is listed if it is the laptop is seeing it so it should be a simple matter of reinstalling the OS if its not then the HDD is faulty you will need to replace it and reload the OS.

Replaced hdd on emachine w3615,light on mobo but it wont come on.


Hi ipackrat21, that little green led you see is telling you the motherboard has standby power. (Its supposed to be green & on).
Make sure the hdd jumper is set to, master without a slave). In a one hdd system.
When you replaced the hdd you also need to enter the bios menu.
In the bios you'll need to make some changes. First you should see the new hdd listed in the bios. (Normally it list the hdd by model). If your hdd is shown than go to the title "BOOT". You need to set the boot order. A normal boot order would list like so;
First boot device, Floppy disk drive".
Second boot device, "CR-ROM" drive.
Third boot device, "Your new hdd".
If your bios does not see your hdd you'll need to re-check the data cable from the board to the drive. (Make sure it is fully connected).
If the drive is an IDE/PATA make sure it has power. A 4-pin molex.

Still have trouble, post it here.

You don't have a USB thumb drive plugged in do you? Remove any discs ( CD, floppy etc ) & check the BIOS boot order to start with.
