I have a asus Eee pc notebook,when i turn it on the message REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE appears how do i do that?


check if there is any fashdrive or memory card plugged in. if it shows that message it might mean your pc cant detect a bootable harddrive. was it working before? was it dropped or bumped maybe the harddrive got loose. at the bootup screen do you see your harddrive? if your pc can still detect your harddrive try installing a fresh copy or your operating system. hope this helps.

"disk read error occured". After


Hi,

This can be indication that your Harddrive is not being detected by the system. You can try loading the defaults in BIOS or re-detect your harddrive automatically. See if it is listed in the boot devices in BIOS. You can also try to check if power is correctly supplied in the harddrive. Open your CPU box, take out the cables (especially the molex) for the harddrive and put them back in firmly.

You can try to use the 32 bit harddrive diagnostic of dell to check if your harddrive is still working or not. Here's a guide: Click Here

Laptop says no operating system found wot do i do as its a samsung notebook


Hi,

Check if the harddrive is detected in BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) setup by pressing F2..or F12 (depends on what key is designed for the BIOS setup).

- If the harddrive is detected in the BIOS (usually shows the harddrive name or values beside "Drive 0"), your operating system is corrupted. You need an operating system disc to install it.

- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS ( no value beside "Drive 0"), either the harddrive cable is loose, the harddrive is not inserted properly or is defective. Check the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop and use screw driver to reveal it. Try to reinsert it or use a good known hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Lap top can't find hard drive


Hi,

Here are some steps that you can try.

- Check if the harddrive is recognized in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). Normally you will see values beside "Drive 0" at the first page if the harddrive is detected. If it says none or blank, then it is not detected. Reload BIOS default settings and try to boot up the unit to see if it will pick up the harddrive.
- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS, you need to unscrew the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
- Reinsert the harddrive and check harddrive cable. Also try to use a good known harddrive if yours is defective.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to Fixya

Make sure first that there are no devices plug in to the usb when you boot up the computer. Check if the harddrive is being detected by the computer. Press F2 to go to BIOS menu and see if the computer can detect you harddrive. It should be under the main menu and will say below harddrive. It should give you infromation of the harddrive. If there is no information of the harddrive then the problem there is the harddrive already.

Please reply to this email for any update.

Thank you for using Fixya!

This issue showed that the harddrive is not found. Try to fixed hardware connecting from harddrive and the board.
did you see hard drive detected in the bios at start? if your are sure that the connection cable is firmly fixed and the hard drive still not detected by the bios. so there is a problem with your harddrive. you should/may replace that.On the other hand if in case your hard drive is detected and still thesame problem encountered. then, you should reinstall your operating system by inserting the original operating system recovery/ windows bootable installation disc to refresh the state of your system.

any problem srising this solution please notify me.
