Question about Acer Aspire 4315 Notebook
This error message means that the computer cannot find a boot-able device such as the hard disk or a boot CD or boot floppy disk.
This fault means it cannot boot up from the hard disk, it could be faulty or needs re-seating to make proper electrical connection.
Try re-seating the hard disk (ie remove and insert it back).
If this doesn't work then boot up the computer and go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard disk is detected. If not then the disk controller is faulty or most likely the hard disk is faulty.
To determine if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug this into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect it as an external hard drive and you cannot open the folders and files, then this confirms the hard disk is faulty.
To get the computer operating again, the hard disk needs to be replaces and Windows installed on the new hard disk together with the computer's device drivers and the various programs.

THis error comes when your hard drive not recognized in bios.
For that make sure your hard drive is detected in bios.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then disable SATA option in Ide configuration .
Then save and exit.
Then If still not detected in bios then you need to reattch hard drive in to laptop.
For that you need to open back cover of laptop the reattach hard drive.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
