Question about Dell Inspiron 5100 Laptop
I am having problems turning on my laptop. It states, "No bootable devices. Strike F1 to retry boot; F2 for setup utility.
Please advice on what can be done to do a quick fix.
Why are we still seeing problems from 5 years ago? And why are people commenting on them when the person with the problem has probably been through 3 laptops since then?

Maybe download linux ubuntu and run os from the cd and see if it works if it does then you need to buy a new hard drive

With no bootable devices, there is no quick fix. It sounds like your hard drive has died on you. Best to buy a new hard drive and re-load.
