Your hard drive has failed, and thus your laptop cannot read it. Or someone intentionally formatted your PC, and now you have to reinstall Windows.

Or someone messed with your bios settings. When your computer boots up it should say a key to press to get into bios settings, if you can't see it just look in HP's support section of their website, and it should tell you there. When you get into bios settings, make sure the hard drive is at the top of the 'boot list' so it detects the hard disk first. If it still doesn't work, then you have to try reformatting/reinstalling windows, or get a new hard drive.

Aspire one keep saying no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key and I don't have a disk slot


You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

My screen says no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key


This sometimes shows up if the floppy drive is set as the first boot device in Bios, and the disk in the floppy drive is not bootable.

Have you attempted to boot to Safe Mode? To enter the Safe Mode menu, continually tap the F8 key just after powering on the computer.

If you're abe to boot to Safe Mode, try choosing the option "Last known good configuration" as the boot option.

If this doesn't work, try Safe Mode (with or without Networking)

We need to know if you can even boot before continuing. If you can't boot then you may need to do a Windows repair. Do you have the OS Disc?

My daughter's ACER inspire one gives the following message and makes a beeping sound "Check Cable connection! PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE Rom No bootable device---insert boot disk and press any key


There is a loose connection between the hard drive and motherboard of the computer, that's why you are getting that message. You most likely need to take it to a computer repair shop so they can fix it.

G60-230US PC Notebook died. It reads: "No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key" on startup. startup test failed: "there is no hard disk."


It means that your notebook is not able to detect any hard drives or a bootable drive
also plz check if there are any cd/dvd or any external devices like flash drives or external hard drives connected to the nb.. If so disconnect all the external devices and try to boot up ..
If it does'nt work go to the bios screen by continiously tapping F10 or F2 or DEL key as soon as you turn on the nb and check if the hard drive is detected or not.. if its not reset the hard drive and retry.. If the hard drive is detected run a hard drive self test if it fails.. replace the drive if it passes run system recovery
Hope it works
All the best !!!
