SOURCE: my acer aspire 4810t says no bootable device

enter BIOS - you will see a mesage when you first turn on laptop tellign you to press a key to enter setup. Do this and make sure HDD is listed. if it is, you might have todo a recovery.

Turn on laptop, then immediatly press ALT + F10 keep finger on ALT and press F10 a few times, this will start the recovery process. some ask if you want to re-install windows or full factory reset. Windows install will only repair it - full factory reset will delete any data you have! so be careful

SOURCE: my laptop is saying Check Cable Connection!

What this means is that it has "lost" the windows installation. Possibly corrupted and possibly a virus
The message you are getting is due to the laptop looking for an alternative boot device, the PXE refes to network boot, the last in the boot order.

What you need to do is obtain a copy of the Windows disc, borrow a USB CD Drive and re-install. When getting to the install windows prompt, let it "find " the windows installation and REPAIR

If you do not have a USB device, the following is your only other option:

  1. You will need the following: Copy of a windows installtion disc; usb pendrive of 2 gb, probably aslo a usb floppy drive and floppy disc.
  2. You will also need this:
http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

  1. Now you need to borrow a computer to download the above software and visit the Acer download page to get the SATA drivers. Extract these to a floppy drive and make sure you have the TEXTMODE drivers!
  2. Run win to flash and extract the windows files from the cd, it will guide you through the process of making a BOOT Usb.
  3. Set laptop bios to boot from USB
  4. When prompted (have the floppy usb drive plugged in), at F6 press to detect the SATA drivers on teh floppy
  5. Follow instructions and you should have windows up and running again

Using the Restore function for your iPod touch is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will erase all data from your iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All of the iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.
Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up
