Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet
My laptop will not boot up and when i go into my boot up list my hdd is not there but in bios it says it is supposed to be top of the list is my hdd knackered
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.

It happens when no boot device is selected, the default is network boot first, you must select CDROM/DVDROM or HD as your first startup device.

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.
