Getting message on my laptop saying no bootable divice


Your 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.

Pxe e61


You have a hard drive problem. The bios is going through the boot order, looking for a bootable device, it is not recognizing the hard drive as bootable so it moves on to pxe....a network boot. Bottom line....make sure the hard drive is all plugged in. Find out the make....and go to the manufacturer's website....download the ISO to make a bootable diagnostic cd.....and do a quick test, then a long test of the hard drive. If it passes, you make have to re-install the operating system. Sometimes you need to load sata drivers to recognize the disk, but not usually with most newer stuff (unless it asks for the driver during the install, won't see any hard drive). So I would find out if the hard drive is any good, or not. If you cannot find the diagnostic you could try seatools which works on most hard drives, but its best to use the one for that hard drive.
Here's the link for seatools:

Won,t boot up


hard drive is faulty as it cannot be detected by the bios of your laptop. and/or your optical drive has no bootable cd in it. you may need to install a functioning hard drive with installed operating system for it to detect that the hard drive is bootable.

My acer aspire one says no bootable device


This sounds awful, but a friend just had the same problem - no bootable device. He had dropped it, hitting keyboard first. Now he thumped it on the opposite side and IT WORKED! Must have been a loose connector

My laptop wont boot from the hard drive


See if you can boot from a cd.  If you can, then most likely the hard drive crashed.  Replace it
