    If you are trained enough in computer hardware, try to disconnect the power (molex) to one of these devices and see if it helps

Bootable device has not been dectected


When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either thehard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press anykey" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case andre-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to themotherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this harddrive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to anUSB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if thiscomputer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard driveis faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computerand then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's devicedrivers and your programs.

No beeps, no video, fans working,


no the floppy disk is not faulty, it is normal and required that the floppy disk drive light blink to indicate that the drive is working. And about the power on the power button might be stuck inside that is why it keeps turning on immediately you connect to main power

I just bought a mother board for my computer and it picks up the hard drive and while installing windows xp pro it stops cause it loses the hard drive


you must have a sata hdd..........if so you will have to put in a driver for the hdd to work .......................when you start the setup to install windows from the xp cd...................you will see when you start the setup disk it will tell you to press F? button if you have a 3rd party driver unfortunately it will ask you later for a floppy with the driver on it...therefore you will need to get the driver from your cd that came with the MoBo or online and put it on a floppy disk and most new computers don't have floppy if yours does then all is well if not then you must get an external floppy that will work from USB just to install the driver....................I would enter the BIOS and see if there is a setting to automatically set the sata or raid settings for your HDD first usually F2.......will enter the BIOS..... BUT, .Be VERY CAREFUL a wrong setting change can cause your PC to not boot at all so write down everything you change and what it was before you changed it and only do 1 or 2 things at a time.....usually F10 saves the BIOS settings or on exit the computer will ask to save your changes.
GOOD LUCK

Sata HDD NOT DETECTING IN XP SETUP


If you're using a scsi card and connecting the hard drive to the card you need to have the scsi set-up floppy disk. When the blue screen starts during windows installation watch the bottom of the screen. It will tell you to press F6 key then to insert the floppy disk.
If you're using a sata drive connected directly to the motherboard (not in a raid configuration) you shouldn't need anything but the windows disk. The motherboard drivers and utilities disk should have the files to create the scsi install disk.

A: drive


get into the bios F2 or Del on boot up and change the first boot device to cdrom and 2nd to HDD then last the 'a' drive. The floppy drive may be faulty, if you dont use it just disconnect it.

disconnect drive 'A' floppy drive and see if it will boot up without it connected. It may be that the floppy is faulty if you know the ide cable is on the correct way round, as your pc may be set to halt on all errors
