SOURCE: When I turn the computer on, I get the following

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

its not detecting your HDD. on boot enter BIOS & check whether your HDD is being detected by the MB. IF not(most possible) then check the power & data cables to your HDD, Check your SMPS too, if SMPS OK then your HDD is corrupted. GET new HDD

SOURCE: Replaced hard drive and am getting a "Reboot and

Hi seqhdha,

The reason why you're receiving that meesage is the system is not detecting any bootable device on the computer or it is boot from a media that is not bootable (CD/DVD/USB). To fix this problem if you already installed the Operating System you can change boot priority setting and select the Hard Drive as the First Boot Device however, if you havent install the Operating System you need to select the CDROM as the First Boot Device and insert the Windows Installer.

Here are the steps on how to access the BIOS Page.

1. Restart the computer and while it is booting tap DELETE button.

2. On the Bios page look for the BOOT tab then set the priority to either Hard Disk or CDROM depends if you already installed the OS or not.

3. Follow the instruction on how to install the Operating System

4. Rate me if this helps so i can help others.

Thanls for using Fixya.

SOURCE: What can I do to fix this problem, my gr 500 is telling me to reboot and select proper device or insert boot media in selected boot device

You need to go into your Bios or System Setup and change the boot order or boot sequence. It sounds like you might be trying to boot from a Network or Lan. It could be that you are trying to boot from the CD drive but instead of having a operating system disc in the drive you might have a movie or music cd in the drive.

Reboot the computer and notice what key the screen says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and hit that key. Change your boot order or boot sequence. The best sequence is to have the CD Drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. Changing this in the bios or system setup will make the change permanent. Just make sure when you boot the computer that nothing is in the CD drive unless you have a repair disc or operating system disc in it.

You could make a temporary change but then you will have to change it every time you boot. If you notice the screen when you boot it also gives you the key to hit to change the boot order or boot sequence. This will allow you to change it just for this time that you are booting.

How would you hook up a printer to this computer since there is no cd drive for the software disc? Are there any printers compatible with this unit?

I often download and install software from my hard drive. Go to the manufacturers site to get the software. I only use HP printers and can get software for almost anything from them.

Error message on screen: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

In the bios be sure the boot sequence starts with the hard drive, and that the hard drive is recognized by the bios, if both of these are true than you may need to re install windows.
