Most likely, your hard drive died. Enter the system BIOS to see what it is detecting (or not) for your hard drive(s). If the hard drive is not being detected as I suspect, you could just replace it and reinstall all of your software.

    The BIOS for PIII systems normally had the drives listed on the first page of the BIOS setup. There would be space for 4 drives. Some of them are probably reporting 'Not detected.' The first one in the list should be your primarly hard disk. If you only have one hard disk in the system, the second one should be blank. The third should list any CD/DVD drive in the system and the 4th is probably blank as well. The lsit may be enumerated as Primary Master (1), Primary Slave (2), Secondary Master (3), and Secondary Slave (4). Any entries listed as 'Not detected' either don't have a drive attached to them or the drive is defective.

Hi there.
Go into the bios, in the first page you should see the HDD and the CD/DVD drive, if you can see 2 devices there, look for the boot options and change the boot order to the HDD as the first boot device, press F10, click ok and exit the bios, the computer will restart and should boot from the HDD (hard drive).
Please post back with the results.

Good luck

Your hard drive has gone bad and it will need to be replaced.

    Again, this means your drive is defective and needs to be replaced.

Computer beeping and saying reboot and select proper boot device


When you reboot, go to BIOS, restore factory BIOS settings. If that doesn't help, you'll need to reinstall your OS.

Check the connectors running to your hard disk to make sure they are firmly connected. Also check the data cable to the motherboard. Reboot the computer and enter BIOS. Check that your hard drive is being detected properly. If it is not, the drive is shot and needs to be replaced.

I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
