Life expectency of hdd is 3 -5 years but just to make sure go to hitachie's website or just google drive fitness test and burn it as a bootable image, boot your machine from the disk ( drive fitness test) and run the test, look out for the error code at the end of the test, anything other than 0x00 means the hdd is faulty

It keeps tellin me no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key... i also dont have a disk drive all i have is a ubs flash drive spot


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

I dont know how to set boot option?


Normally you want to boot from the CD/DvD drive 1st then the Hard Drive 2nd. This is the best way because if the hard drive ever goes bad you can put a operating system disc or repair disc into the drive and boot from it.

Just be careful that when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive otherwise you might get an error messages saying unbootable device.

Lap top will not boot need to know how to set the boot options in the bios


If you are interested in doing it more easily and quickly. I think you can try this computer boot up suite. When your computer crashes, cannot enter Windows, or you want to work under boot environment, this is your NO. 1 choice.

It said please insert disc and press any key but i dont have a disc . please help me


Hi,
Your computer is not able to detect the hard drive on which your operating system is loaded.
Either the hard drive has gone bad or boot device priority has changed.
Try tapping ESC while turning the computer on you will get the force boot options :select the HDD group and try to boot the computer.
Disconnect all the external bootable devices such as external Hard drive.
It will give you the information whether the hard drive is working or not.
Still if the computer is not booting than there might be an issue with the Hard drive.

INstall the hard drive, if the hard drive came with a cd, put the cd in the drive and boot the laptop. When you see it say "boot from cd hit any key" do so and follow the prompts. This software will "initialize" the disc and install for the first time. Once the disc is "officially" installed take the hard drive disc out of the drive and replace it with Operating Disc. Reboot the machine and again look for the "Boot from CD Hit any Key" hit any key and let the system load windows. You only have to hit the key one time when it says "hit any key" even if during the windows install, the system may reboot but it still may need the disc in the drive, if you see the heading "boot from cd hit any key" dont hit any key any more....just let windows finish loading. When windows finally reboots, sometimes up to three times, then you can take the disc out of the drive or take it out if the operating system instructs you to. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
