The harddrive might be loose. check that the IDE/Ribbon Cable, or SATA wires are secure into the back of the hard disk , and where the other end of the cable meets the motherboard.

next , make sure the bootable device order is correct. that it is indeed trying to boot of the hard drive. that is done in the BIOS. Press DEL, or F12 or whatever option (sometimes F2) is displayed on the screen at the very start of the powering on state. (this is called the POST screen).

If you access the BIOS screen from the POST (the black DOS screen before windows starts) look in the listing for Logical Boot Order, and ensure that the Hard Disk Drive is listed as one of the first in the order.

try that and see what happens.

because beyond that, you might have a dead hard drive, or the master boot record on your disk is corrupt, and either of those are bad results.

Aspire one keep saying no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key and I don't have a disk slot


You 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.

It keeps tellin me no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key... i also dont have a disk drive all i have is a ubs flash drive spot


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.

There is a loose connection between the hard drive and motherboard of the computer, that's why you are getting that message. You most likely need to take it to a computer repair shop so they can fix it.

When I turn on my acer 5115 it says no bootable


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
