    Hi there, Ensure that no CD's, DVD's or Floppy disks are inserted in any drive then try to boot again, it's quite common for this to be the issue. Otherwise boot your computer, enter your BIOS and ensure that the hard disk drives are detected there. If they are you will most likely have a partition problem. Hope this helps :)

Is youe hard drive located in the bios under the first option?
if it is, then the hard drive is recognized, try using a bootble cd like puppy linux or winpe mini cd, or even your windows installation disk, and see if the drive is located some where, if it is not located any where, then you have a problem that need alternative solutions, propably physical or hardware faliure in the drive, or some bios limitations, if it is located then u have an easy **** sometimes verry complicated problem, it can be a missing file frome the os, or a boot sector , boot loader problem, that can be fixed with the command fixmbr, and fixboot c:,
**** before that make sure of the problem, and tell me what did u find if u need some help with solutions...gd luck

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.

No bootable device found


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.

How do i fix it?


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 reseat (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.

Emachines W6409 won't start up.


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, DE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
if its a 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to travel through every working device its and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your ram and cmos battery are securely seated with no dust in sockets
some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this will help you

My dell 5125 indicates internal hard disk drive not found. it asked me to reseat the drive...than it indicates no bootable devices- i'm strike F1 to retry to boot and F2 for setup utility....nothing...


Try accessing setup utility and verify there if it still recognizes your hard drive, if not then that means your hard drive had crashed. If you have important files on the drive, you can try to recover it by going to a local service provider and have your files recovered, and of course you have to get a new hard drive for your dell.
