drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it.
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...
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
Sounds like you need a windows vista operating system disc. The recovery discs set your system back to factory settings like when you first brought it home from the store. But to me, the system is bloated with all the software and trial junk that you don't need. If you can get your hands on a Vista Operating System Disc, then do a clean install from it. Just make sure your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) sticker is readable so that you can activate the vista once you've got it loaded. If you can't get your hands on a system disc, take it to a computer repair shop, I would think you could find one that will load the operating system for $60 or less.
U have to boot off the disc which is going into your bios and going to boot devices and have it boot of disc if disc is a bootable disc u should get a message saying press any key to boot of disc.. If disc is not a boot disc it will tell u to put in a bootable disc
Try to use a bootable disc (usually OS discs or recovery discs). Boot to disc by changing the boot device priority into CD/DVD drive. If your unit will boot to disc, the problem is the operating system. However, if it will not boot to the bootable disc, surely, the optical drive of your unit is defective. In this case, either u need to reinsert it, or replace it with new one.
This sounds awful, but a friend just had the same problem - no bootable device. He had dropped it, hitting keyboard first. Now he thumped it on the opposite side and IT WORKED! Must have been a loose connector
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.
