Question about Acer Aspire E380-UD420A (ASE380-UD420A) PC Desktop
Considering that u have Vista, is probably nothing wrong with u;re drive ....
Anyway, try to test it with other software (not the one from vista), u'll find plenty of free drive diagnostic tools ...just do a little google search.
If all tests show that there is nothing wrong with the drive, than check all the programs that are active when shutting down the computer (..anything that uses the drives ... log keepers and such ..). If any lucks suspicious, close it manualy, and than reboot to see if the issue remains ...
Anyway a reinstall of the OS woud probably fix the problem ...

This error message
- "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key" means -
The PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard
disk or floppy drive.
Check the floppy drive and remove and floppy disk.
If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it is a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect the hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.
To get the computer working again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on the new hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.
