Question about Sony VAIO Notebook

1 Answer

Unresponsive disk drive

My laptop disk drive doesn't seem to ''communicate'' with my computer. When I insert a disk, the drive whirrs around without showing anything on the screen to indicate that the program has started or is ready to start.

    By ID my cd/dvd drive I mean that the computer shows no recognition of activity when a disk is inserted (other than beeping repeatedly and blinking the light on the drive). My Computer does list the drive, but that's it. I'm not familiar with Autorun - how is it activated? Clicking on the drive in My Computer doesn't help.

    Double clicking the drive does not bring up the contents. Auto Play is set on the default, which is supposed to "prompt me each time to choose an action" - but I get no prompts.

    you can right-click on the drive and select "AutoPlay" or "AutoRun"
    depends on the type of cd... if you double click the drive, do the contents show up?

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.

My Acer aspire one 722 says when i turn it on,"no bootable device- - insert boot disk and press any key.my laptop has no disk reader?


Wow, you're kinda up the creek without a paddle. Never buy a laptop that has no CD Drive, you'll get burned when it crashes.

You need a drive now to insert a system disk or repair disk to get around this problem. Without it your only option will probably be to do a System Recovery which takes your system back to when you first bought it. You'll lose all your data.

Gateway nv7915u error message i'm getting is pxe-e61 media test failure check cable pxe-m0f exiting broadcom pxe rom no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key but when i do that nothing...


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.
