It is possible that there is a mistake in somewhere in BIOS. when booting go to BIOS, and look for booting devices. As a primary booting device should be your HDD, or ODD first and HDD second.
apply these changes and see if the problem is fixed.
if it isn't, it is very likely that your HDD is not working anymore

Open the hard drive bay and ensure it is plugged in correctly. If that isn't the problem, try testing the hard drive. If it's ok, then the motherboard is gone.

It looks like your hard disk went invisible, and BIOS is trying all alternative boot options before it says that there's no boot device available.
I'm afraid that the most probable diagnosis is that the hard disk is broken; anyway you'll need hands-on service to establish what's wrong and what can be done.

Comp won't boot


This could also happen if the hard drive is dead and trying to boot the next item or the BIOS has the Netboot option set as the first boot device.

Jump into your BIOS and make sure that the boot order is CDROM then USB then HDD. Then try again. Let us know what happens.

Aspire 5315, no bootable device, PXE-E61 media test failure,


With any standard laptop (your Aspire included) the default boot disk should be set to drive C:
If the system is not finding drive C:, the boot sector may be damage or the drive may have failed completely.
Depending on your operating system (probably Win XP for this one) you can make a boot disk on a friend's optical drive and change the boot sequence in the BIOS setup to your optical drive. Just make sure the disk you've made is compatible with the drive in your Aspire; such as CD - DVD+-, etc.
Once you can get some kind of prompt, either from a basic Desktop or just E:\ from your boot CD, try typing in "C:" (without the quotes) to see if it is accessible. If not, the drive may be bad.
If the drive is still readable, you have more work to do to restore the damaged boot sector.

No boot disc


Yes bunnydawg could be indeed correct. Although also make sure you don't have a flash drive, external hard drive, or any CD/DVD left in the drive first. As they could try to boot from the device and fail (because they are not setup and formatted as bootable) and it will report the very same message.

My laptop wont go to desktop on startup.


Here is what you need to do
1. Power on the machine
2. At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10” key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, you can cancel the process and now your laptop should boot normally or you can click “Restore to Factory Default Settings”
4. Click “OK” to continue .
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press “OK” to reboot unit
