It means that you need to install an operating system. I know your going to say "but I had one and it was working the other day". Well then I would suggest opening the computer and making sure none of the connections have come loose. If none have the only thing you can do is re instally windows

SOURCE: Acer aspire one mini notebook. NTLDR is missing..

If you don't have documents, pictures, etc on the hard drive that you need to backup, try running system recovery by doing the following (not sure if this works on the version with a solid state drive):
1. Turn on the computer
2. Press and hold Alt + F10
3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default
4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK

* This will return your netbook to the condition it was in from the manufacturer.

SOURCE: my computer says check cable

This error occurs because your hard drive is not detected by your PC. If you can open the tray of your hard disk and try to tighten the cable that is connected to the HD it may fix the problem.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Aspire one keep saying no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key and I don't have a disk slot


You 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.

It keeps tellin me no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key... i also dont have a disk drive all i have is a ubs flash drive spot


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

There is a loose connection between the hard drive and motherboard of the computer, that's why you are getting that message. You most likely need to take it to a computer repair shop so they can fix it.

I have an Acer Aspire1 Netbook and below is the problem. Went to BIOS set defaults but still get the same thing: For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller... check cable connection PXE-MOF:exiting intel PXE...


A computer tries to "boot" from many devices:

* 3.5-inch floppy-disk (if available)
* USB memory-stick (if connected)
* internal CD/DVD device
* external CD/DVD device
* internal disk-drive
* over your network-cable, by talking to a "network boot server".

When it tries to boot over the network-cable, and *NO* "boot-server" responds,
you get the "check cable connection" and "exiting from P(re)(e)X(ecution)E(nvironment)" mode.

If it cannot boot from your 'C:' drive, and cannot boot from the network boot-server,
your computer responds "no bootable device" and "insert boot disk" (into CD or floppy-disk),
and "press any key" (to try again to boot).

What this USUALLY means is that your 'C:' disk-drive has stopped working,
meaning that Windows cannot be "booted" from it.

Seek help from a qualified technician to trouble-shoot your disk-drive, and/or to replace it, and/or to reinstall Windows, and/or to "repair" your existing Windows installation.
