It would appear your hard drive has either been corrupted or has failed all together.
I would suggest reseting the system then follow the on screen instructions for entering setup or the bios, and see if the bios is still detecting the drive, it should be on the first screen with your cd rom drive listed as well
if the drive is showing there, then it may simply have been corrupted or damaged by a virus. you can try inserting your windows cd, reboot the system and press a key to begin the setup when prompted, follow the instructions on screen to attempt a repair, or a restore to an earlier point. if you simply start a windows install and overwrite what is there, so long as you do not format the drive first, your data should still be in tact, however many or all of the programs that you previously had installed may not work and will have to be reinstalled.

It means that your computer doesn't recognize your hard disk which has the operating system install on it.

if you still have your windows' install disk, or recovery disk, insert it to your CD and reboot your computer.
in most cases the default for the booting order will first go to the CD and look for bootable CD and only then it will go to the hard disk.

if for some reason it doesnt go first to the CD, you will need to get into the BIOS and change the booting order.

in any case, even if the computer starts, there is a good chance that something happened to your hard drive and you will need to take it to the repair shop.

The laptop cannot find the boot hard drive, it may be faulty or just need reseating to make proper electrical connection.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

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.

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.

When i turn on my Acer Aspire One D255 it says: "check cable connection! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"


The PXE ROM is part of your system's network interface controller. It is being entered on your system's startup to look for a bootable image on a physical network connection and if found, to boot from that image. If there is no network cable connection to your system or if there is but no bootable device is found on that connection, the result is the error message that you got. As to why your system is entering the PXE ROM can be explained by looking at your system's Setup Utility,,,

Press F2 while powering up to enter the Setup Utility and use the cursor control keys to go to the Boot tab which then shows the Boot priority order. The default order is as follows...
1. IDE0
2. IDE1
3. USB FDD
4. USB HDD
5. Network Boot : LEGACY PCI DEVICE
6. USB CDROM
Your system's internal hard disk drive should be listed beside IDE0 and it will be accessed first to look for a boot record. If the drive fails to boot, the next devices in the list will be accessed accordingly until either a bootable device is found or the last item which is USB CDROM. If a USB CDROM is plugged in on one of the system's USB ports, it will be checked for a bootable record and if not found or no CDROM is plugged in, then the system displays the last part of the message -- insert boot disk and press any key.

Press F12 while powering up enters the Boot Menu which has the Boot Option Menu. This menu should show by default the following...
1. IDE 0: (the name/type information for your system's internal hard disk drive
2. Network Boot: LEGACY PCI DEVICE

If there is no hard disk drive information shown beside IDE 0, then the possibilities are that
1. there is no internal hard drive present
2. there is a hard drive but it has failed
If there is hard disk drive information and pressing enter to select it does not result in an operating system startup, then the drive's startup partition has been wiped and so it has no bootable image.

If there seems to be an internal hard drive present but it has no bootable image, you may attempt recovery from the installation images in the hidden partition. The recovery allows restoration of...
1. operating system to factory defaults
2. applications (selectable)
3. drivers (selectable)

Press Alt and F10 keys together while powering up and the Acer logo is showing to enter Acer's eRecovery Management. Follow the instructions to do the recovery.
