Sir, it seems that your hard drive not detected to your machine
turn on your note book and press f2 when it starts, it direct you to system setting, find there is any hard drive installed on it? if there is no hard drive detected it means that your hard drive is broken. If there is any hard drive installed but your note book still don't want to boot, may be it because the operation system. you can restore to factory setting by pressing f11 when you turn on your note book

Sounds like your hard drive is going bad. Best thing to do is to take it to a shop and ask them to check your hard drive. Or, if at all possible plug it into another PC externally with a external HDD kit and check it with programs such as crystal disk info.


Best of luck

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.

Hi ankushh91,

try a different Bootable disk and see if it will boot, also try you disc on a known good computer see if the disk you are using is bootable aswell to eliminate the cause of the issue.
When Booting from a disc make sure the disc is inserted in the dvd/cdrom drive once you turn the computer ON then you will see press anykey to boot to CD or disc if this shows just press any key this will boot to the Disc if it is Bootable it will show the message press anykey if the disc is not bootable it will only try and boot to the Hard drive directly.

My computer froze and the only way i could turn it off was holding the power button and when i went to turn it back on it went to a black screen in the start up menu and now its saying no bootable device...


  • Your hard drive has crashed. Your computer was unable to start up because the files needed to start up are missing. You must go to your nearest IT support center (best buy, radio shack) and see if any files from your hard drive can be recovered.
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good luck! (Please give a thumbs up, I am doing this for a summer job!)

How do u get to the repair your pc on the start up disk. My pc just went down one day with out warning it says registry corrupt or missing insert installation disk n restart your ps I insert the disk...


Mr. Randee, you need a bootable disc or should i say cd installer like windows xp professional. Turn on your computer and tap DEL key or F2 key, it will enter you to cmos/bios setup. When already in cmos/bios look for the bios features setup using arrow keys and when highlighted it press enter. Then look for the boot sequence and make the cd or dvdrom drive first boot by pressing - or + or pageup or pagedown to modify. When you already changed the boot sequence press F10 key to save the settings then press Y. While restarting insert the Microsoft CD installer and when ask you for press any key, press any key to boot or start booting from cd or dvdrom drive. Let the cd installer run and when the computer ask for enter, repair or skip press R for repair. Then it will load to repair setup, type 1 for c:\windows and press enter. Type fixboot and enter and press Y for yes after that type fixmbr and enter and press Y for yes then type exit. After that wait to restart your computer and eject the cd installer and the computer will automatically load to windows. Have a good day!

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.

New build computer boot problem


The exact problem is not actually a problem.Just get in to BIOS.
As it is a new system, even if you get to boot from HDD it would say insert proper boot device and press enter or your floppy drive is in first boot.Check you boot settings.

Change the boot order as below.
  • 1st boot device:CD drive
  • 2nd boot device:Hard drive
  • 3rd boot device: anything you want
Now save and exit(F10 then Enter)
Now your PC will reboot.

Drop in the OS CD (Xp , LINUX or whatever)
Install the OS .Now you are ready to use your PC.
