MSI hard drive a6200 462US not working

Every time I turn on the laptop it automatically goes to Boot Manager and when I try to press Tab or Esc or Delete it does nothing. I've tried taking the battery out and holding the power key for 60 seconds, and I turned the laptop on again and it did the same thing. There is no water damage, and I've had this laptop for about 2 years now.

SOURCE: Another "Won't Boot"

My guess is a faulty processor.  I had to replace my motherboard a while back.  Yesterday I was really proud because I got the machine up and running, proving, I thought, that I had successfully took it apart and put it back together.  It had been out of commission for a while, so when I shut it down, it asked if I wanted to do windows xp auto updates.

This morning I got the exact same issue you have, so I opened her back up and noticed that I forgot to plug the CPU fan back into it's socket.  So much for feeling awesome.

My guess is that while doing updates it overheated and died, but I didn't notice because I stopped paying attn to it because it was turning itself off.  I don't think it's a Windows thing because when I try to put a boot cd into the computer, it still won't read.

Dunno what to say...  I'll definitely post back here after I replace the cpu to see if I find an answer.

SOURCE: Blinking Lights, Computer Wont Boot

If it's blinking 9 times then it's likely telling you one or more of the RAM sticks are in need of replacement. To check these, remove the laptops power cord and battery, then locate and remove, the cover for the RAM. Remove one chip at a time and try booting the laptop.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 700m blank screen or won't boot

The problem you are facing sounds like either a video board problem, which I believe the 700 is hard solered onto the motherboard or an inverter board. The best way to test this is to hook up an external monitor to your laptop and see if the problem persists. If the problem does not appear on an external monitor, then the problem is most likely the inverter board in your laptop. If you are still having the problem with an external monitor, then your video card is at fault. The video card on this series I believe is hard soldered to the motherboard and cannot be replaced without changing out the motherboard. If the problem goes away with an external monitor then you just have to replace the inverter board on your laptop which you can pickup on eBay for around 30.00 + shipping.

Boot device not found, insert a boot disk and press any key


The "no bootable devices found" error can create headaches, as well as occasional heartache if you're a laptop user. This error appears when your computer is unable to find a device or file required for normal operation. It could indicate one of three issues: hard drive failure, software error or motherboard malfunction. Any of these potential problems can render your laptop useless. Hard drive failure or software errors can lead to data loss, which can cause anguish and catastrophe, depending on the files business information, family photos, student projects at risk.
Hard Drive Failure
The interior of a hard drive is akin to a turntable. Most hard drives contain two to three discs, known as platters, which are similar to records. These platters are read and written on by a tiny needle called the read/write head, similar to the arm and needle on a turntable. When a hard drive functions properly, the platters spin and the read/write head accesses the files necessary to boot your computer. Improper function of any of these physical pieces can cause a mechanical failure and result in the "no bootable devices" error. Software Error
In rare instances, a software problem more specifically, a particularly nasty virus may cause the "no bootable devices" error.
Most often, if a virus attacks and corrupts your system, your computer can still detect the hard drive and operating system, and you'll see some attempt at a normal boot.
If a virus attacks certain system and startup files, however, they may not be detectable next time you boot your computer, thus causing you to see "no bootable devices."
This may also happen if you are manually deleting files from your computer and accidentally delete system files.
Motherboard
Sometimes individual components of your laptop's motherboard malfunction, which can cause problems ranging from loss of wireless capabilities to inability to detect an external power source.
If the components that detect your hard drive fail, your laptop is unable to receive signals from the hard drive and therefore may display the "no bootable devices" error.
Repair
Fixing a "no bootable devices" error can prove costly.
If motherboard failure caused the error, you're probably better off purchasing a new laptop; unless it's under warranty; the average motherboard replacement costs $250 to $500.
You can reinstall your operating system to resolve software errors, which is fairly inexpensive by computer repair standards, costing $80 to $130 dollars, but this step may also overwrite your existing data.
In some cases, data may prove so badly corrupted it's not salvageable.
If you can recover it, however, that raises your repair costs. additional fee.
If hard drive failure caused your "no bootable devices" error, you can replace the drive.
If you need to recover data from a malfunctioning hard drive, send it to a clean room for recovery.
In a clean room, technicians disassemble your hard drive and image each platter; this kind of data recovery is extremely expensive, costing up to $2000 depending on the work involved.
Prevention
There is no way to guarantee you will never receive a "no bootable devices" error, but there are some steps you can take to help prevent it from happening.
Keep your laptop on a flat surface when using it, and avoid any bumps that may cause the hard drive's read/write mechanism to lock up.
Avoid transporting your laptop while the hard drive is active; turn your computer off while traveling.
Additionally, regularly run an anti-malware program to catch and remove viruses or spyware before they cause system problems.

You need not to press F2 or tab or escape unless you need to do so. If your system is ok, it'll automatically boot up, but if there's boot up problem with your system, then that's different. Thanks for using FixYa.
