Go into the bios settings (F1, F2 or Del - look for something that says press "something or other" to enter BIOS / SETUP.

Look for boot config or boot roder or boot priority.

In there change so that your hard disk is number 1 or first option.

There should also be an option to repair or revert when booting up. This option however will erase all saved data.

If it is a relatively new laptop you were more than likely required to make your own repair disks with a utility that run when windows starts (also know as recovery disks)

First thing to do is to check your Floppy/CD-DVD Drives and Eject any disks that may be there.. If there were no disks in either drive, the next step is to check the Boot Priority List to make sure that your Hard Drive is #1 Device & #2 is CD/DVD Drive. Do this by pressing F12 while boot screen appears. Highlight HD and move it to the top of the list. Save & Reboot.
Good Luck. Please Rate My Solution.. Thank You

My acer e1-531 says no bootable device. I tried a los of things including switching to legacy mode bit it says afterward to put a boot disc....


Your hard disk has either gone south or the mbr on the hard drive has become corrupted so the drive will not boot up the computer.

Try doing a repair with the software disks that either came with your laptop, or the disks you made when you first got the unit. Sometimes the drive is so messed up that you cannot do a repair and you have to format the drive and then do a clean install of the software. good luck.

My acer aspire 5100 keepson giving me PXE-ROM error and I take the realtek card of the boot priority and put the first boot as cd-rom and 2nd as HDD. Then i put my vista disk in but it doe not start but...


If you've disabled the LAN option in the BIOS (or put it at the bottom of the boot order) then forget the CD and go back into BIOS and put the HDD as first in the boot order. If the laptop will not boot to the HDD then it is almost certainly the problem.

I got lucky once with this problem on an Acer by just telling the BIOS to go back to Default and the machine booted normally afterwards.

Try reinstalling the OS with your restore disks. It might be that you have HDD failure in which case you would need to replace the HDD.
