Check that the disk drive is fully connected.
This sounds like the hard disk boot sector is corrupted.

One needs to rebuild the MBR (Master Boot Record).
This can be done with a disk partition software on CD rom, from the
laptop.

If this is beyond you, take the laptop to a small pc shop/outfit (NOT pcworld!) and ask them to rebuild the MBR.

SOURCE: When I turn on my MSI M510C notebook - I get this message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" and cannot do anything else. Can someone t

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 :)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: How can i reboot my laptop?

It is either not seeing the HDD and/or the boot sector on the hdd has been damaged. Any repair you do will only be possible after you boot to an environment. If you can get a bootable CD made, that would be one option. Bootable USB is another. Once booted, you will then be able to examine the HDD to see what the problem is.
Does the bios show a HDD at all?

Your machine can't find the boot sector of the hard drive. This could be because there is a cd/dvd in the drive or the BIOS has the wrong boot sequence assigned.

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.
