Hi there,

This will be becuase the hard drive is not formatted.

Try formatting this will then set your hard drive up and install the settings to use it.

To format just go to settings, then system settings then format hard drive.

Unable to use Win To Go on HP Pavilion Laptop

try when starting the laptop, hold delete or alt+del down to open in the bios section
go to the section that allows you to select the boot able devices
change from first hard drive to second hard drive or external disc drive or what ever you have that you can boot from and make that first boot
if you get it right then the message insert boot disc will go and the unit will boot up from that device
best use an external hard drive that you can put the disc in and make that your first boot up
by getting the computer to boot up you can repair any mistakes or circumvent any failed internal hard drive
only thing is , if your hard drive is shot , you will loose all files , folders and data unless you have it backed up on another device

My toshiba laptop won't let me do anything it just says no bootable device insert a boot disk

Hi what OS ? (win 7, xp)

have you tried to check the Bios to see if it picks up the hard drive?
(on boot up, push the delete or F10 or ESC buttons) One of the buttons will get you into the bios then check the boot options or the standard information. You can also set the default values and save.
If you have Win 7 then get Win7 cd and let boot up from the CD. You can choose to repair and this normally works well.

Your disc may be empty or no data or it may not compatible with your drive, you need to scrape the hole of disc in a round with a hard key or knife or any other thing which can easily be inserted in its hole to make compatible with your drive. Do not scrape it so much.

I suspect your pc is not seeing the hard drive. I take it you are using a Sata drive but not installing the sata driver for the motherboard. Try installing on an IDE drive. If this works the above is correct.Good luck.

Not loading, message says reboot with media disc. What does this mean, I do not have a media disc

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

When I turn on my computer it's saying, no bootable device what does this mean and how can I fix it?

First of all make sure you have not left a DVD in the drive or a USB device connected to the laptop.
If you have reboot, see if it works.

If there is no Bootable device in and you get the message again, enter the Bios and check if the hard drive is showing in there. If it is not, you have a problem with the hard drive and it will need replacing, sometimes, you can remove it and re-insert it and it will work ok.

If the hard drive is seen in the Bios, but will not boot, you should run the Windows recovery disc, let it find the previous version of wndows and attempt a repair

Fifa 09 football problem. telling me to clean disc as it is unreadable i am cleaning the disc and restarting the console but it keeps telling me to clean the disc.

One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:
a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.
