My acer aspire one netbook AOD257 keeps telling me no bootable device insert boot disk


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.

You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

My laptop keeps sayin disk read error press ctrl alt delete


Usually you get this message when the hard drive has crashed or there's a disc inside the cd / dvd rom.

Check your bios settings to make sure your computer boots to the hard drive itself.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask ;)

Most times when you see this message it means your computer can not see you hard drive when booting. I am having same problem and i my case is mo mother board has issues with SATA ports. You can try to replace hard drive cable and also try testing it in another computer. other than mother board this can be also hard drive it self. Test in another pc to determine is it or not. If no other pc by a docking station or hard drive enclosure and use it as usb external drive and see can you access it.you can use any computer even your friends. Hope this helps.

then you insert your windows OS make sure its a bootable disc then hit F10 for some computers to exit and save changes....

your computer will restart and then go through the loading then prompt you to hit any key to boot from cd.... make sure you dont actually look for the any key button lol!!!

Why my acer e500 cannot install 64 bit window 7 it say no driver when need to choose hard disk to install


you need to install Uli sata drivers in order for your motherboard to recognize the harddrive and cd drive.

download the drivers here: http://www.soft32.com/download_184082.html

and put them on a cd or memory card, when the system prompts you that you have no harddrive, you can load the drivers from a memory card or cd however if you use a cd you will face other issues. then you will be able to install windows 7 ;)

I did it on my acer e500 and it runs good.
I didn't install the 64 bits version though but the 32 bits.

for all the people saying that his pc is too old: if the pc can run under vista, it runs better under windows 7
