No bootable device acer aspire 5250


This error message means that the computer is not seeing the hard drive or there is no operating system on the hard drive. In the bios does the computer see the hard drive? The unit may have to have the hard drive replaced.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and when I turn it on it tells me NO BOOTABLE DEVICE DETECTED This happen one other time and I rebooted my computer and it came back on but it did not work this time what can I...


NO BOOTABLE DEVICE When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key"
There may be a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.

To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

Screen reads no bootable device


Your hard drive has an error, it has either lost it's boot sector or the drive has failed, If you don't have much technical computer experience i would advise getting a computer tech to look at it.

Turn on acer laptop and it goes to black screen that says no bootable device


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.

Reboot and select proper boot device. what does it mean?


Boot device per see means that it is the device where you want your computer to start it may in the form of Optical drive (CD, DVD), Harddrive, USB drive (thumb drive), Floppy drive (for old computers). When get this error it also means that there are devices you have that are bootable it may be in a form of an Operating System Disk or just a simple bootable floppy drive. But the usual bootable device once you had the operating system installed already will be the Harddrive.

I WANT TO MAKE MY PEN DRIVE AS BOOTABLE PENDRIVE FOR WINDOWS XP


The USB port on most computers is not a bootable USB port. Only after Windows has started up. the USB device driver is running then the USB port will work
UNLESS
Some later model computers/laptop have a bootable USB port and you can change the boot order in the BIOS configuration and change the devices boot order to make the USB port the first boot device.

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

Won't turn on


No bootable device usually means that your hard drive has failed. It is either not connected properly to the computer or the drive needs to be replaced.

Bootable files


When a computer is powered on, the BIOS ("basic input output system") has only a few commands available to it, and the main one is to search for a "boot device" - a storage device which contains "bootable files". The first device it finds with "boot records" is used to load the operating system.

Usually this is the C drive, but could also be a floppy, USB flash memory, or CD.

In order to get the boot records onto a device, a special option must be used when the device is formatted. This boots the boot records in a place where the BIOS knows to look for them.

So, a bootable file (or "bootable device") is a storage device which has been set up with these boot records.
