Acer Aspire one 722 windows 7 netbook. "Check cable connection" and "no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key" are two common things appearing. The computer recognized hardrive, hardr


Hello, it looks like somehow the master boot record was erased from the hard drive, maybe viral? You mentioned the hard drive was recognized in the bios correct? If you need data from the hard drive the easiest way would be to pull the hard drive out and use an external hard drive enclosure to remove the data before you erase everything from the hard drive. If you dont need anything thing you can proceed to do a new install of Windows 7. Turn the computer on then hold alt and the f10 key to perform a factory recovery. This will erase everything and reinstall Windows 7. If this doesnt work then you will need a new hard drive and a bootable usb drive with Windows 7 on it. Hope this helps.

Boot failure insert system disk, but it wont load


You need to check both in BIOS by pressing F key during boot. First check to see if HD is there. If OK, then change Optical drive to first boot, save and reboot.

IF MISSING HD -
Your 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 re-seat (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.

Not sure what operating system you are using. If it is an actual hardware problem you will find it extremely hard to recover these files. If the system still recognizes the hard drive? you may be ok. Insert the Windows disk and boot from it. The system will boot, you will see "Windows Setup" then you will notice it loading files. Be patient here. When you get to the screen that says at the top "Windows Setup" choose r for recovery console. Then it will examine your disk configuration. When that is complete it will ask you to logon, then you will see the command prompt. Type this: fixmbr then once this is complete, try rebooting your computer and voila (hopefully)

Hope this helps

Hard disk not detecting


It is very likely that your motherboard is not capable of handling large HDDs. Too bad, friend. Use a smaller one, or may be two of them.

Mother board or CpU Doesnt work. technician said I have a ghost inside my CPU!


verify your bios settings with regards to what the pc is expecting in way of hard drive.
Do you have the luxury of another hard drive that you can try on this pc ? - this will 'suggest' where the problem rests.
Make sure the lead is fully located on the back of hard drive.
If possible - change the lead for a 'known working' lead (Maybe from the computer that your hard drive was recognized in)
