Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
Laptop's inside connection might gone loose or disconnected. As your laptop is not getting any bootable device, it means your laptop not detecting the hard drive. If you are new then better not to open the laptop. my advice is to take it to a service center or to a service engieer. it will not cost you much and its safe.

The computer is trying to boot from a server (Local Area Network) since it has lost the OS on the hard drive. Possibly the cable between the drive and the motherboard was damaged. Alternatively, the hard drive was damaged - at minimum it lost the Master Boot Record which told the computer where to find the operating system. Frequently you can access the BIOS information to change the boot order by pressing F1, Esc or F2 before the computer attempts to load the OS. On many systems you can change the boot order for one time access by pressing F12 at this same point.
I believe this computer doesn't have an internal optical drive, so an external drive will be needed to repair the unit.
Recovering the data first probably will require taking the drive out and using another computer with a SATA to USB drive connector or a 2.5" drive enclosure.
If you have an optical drive, you can use the OS install or upgrade disc to do a recovery of the drive. Make sure to match the service pack version for Windows. (Any LiveCD (anti-virus or Linux) will let you check if the drive is connected and visible.) Some Unix versions can be run from a USB flash drive.
I hope this helps.

it means it can't find a boot device. your hard drive either popped loose or is broken. would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and re-attach the part. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party Acer Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay. Here's an Acer Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.
