It goes right from the loading screen to this Boot Menu.

It's not showing you even have a hard drive to boot to. If your sure you have a hard drive it may need to be reseated. There is either a cover underneath the laptop or a slide out tray on the side. Unscrew the cover/tray and pull out the hard drive then just put it back in and try to start it. Hope this helps. If not u probably have a dead hard drive. But the computer is still good.

Bootable device has not been dectected

When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either thehard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press anykey" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case andre-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to themotherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this harddrive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to anUSB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if thiscomputer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard driveis faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computerand then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's devicedrivers and your programs.

Non-system disk or disk error message appears and does not remove, even when all cd-rom; disks, have been removed.

hi there,
please make sure that there is no USB flashdrive or any other USB device connected to the computer.
If that's cleared and the same error happens please try to reseat the hard drive because chances are it is not detected by your computer. (you would have to unscrew a small cover from the back of the laptop and take the hard drive off and put it back in)
If that does not work try going to the BIOS and check if the computer detects the hard drive if not and you've already reseated the hard drive then it means that your hard drive has gone bad and it needs to be replaced.
If it detects the hard drive then try booting from a windows cd If you're using windows 7 or Vista go to Windows Recovery Environment or if you're using XP go to the recovery console.
Once you're on the command prompt issue a chkdsk /r or fixmbr command.
If that still does not work, you might have to reinstall Windows on your computer.
Hope this helps!

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Computer won't boot up. Error code 0146 and error code 2000-0146

Good day.
Error code 0146 basically refers to a hard drive. This means your computer is not detecting properly your hard drive or your hard drive itself is defective.
Let's first isolate the problem. Go to your BIOS setup (Pressing F2 upon power on) and check if your hard drive is properly setup in your BIOS. Make some necessary adjustments and save setting.
Turn-off your pc and try to check the data cable and the power cable is properly connected to your hard drive. You may also try re-seating the data and power cables - remove first and then connecting it again to the hard drive. Loose cables may cause problems. Power on the pc.
If you still receive the same error, then you need to replace the hard drive with another one.
Good luck.

Hp pavillion dv6915n - no hard drive detected

We do not say that the hard drive is damage maybe the IDE was faulty already. You may open your laptop and check the hard drive. Try to replace the IDE to check if the hard drive is good.

My hard drive doesn't show up

If the external hard drive is not detected by yur computer, try first connecting the drive on a different USB port so we can test the USB port and then after that if still not yet detected try a different USB cable to test the cable and after that still not detected connect the drive on different computer so we can see if this is already a hardware problem.....

PXE-E61: media test failure check cable

The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

About hard disk

I am assuming you got this error while trying to install Windows XP. If so, The solution to this problem will result in the LOSS OF ALL DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. This is a two part process.

1) Check to make sure hard drive is seated in laptop well.
   Enter BIOS and ensure that your hard drive is detected. If not, try the auto detect feature that most BIOS' have and see if this detects your hard drive. If not, try restoring the BIOS defaults and see if that works. If not, hard drive may be bad.
   Continue to part 2.

2) Insert your Windows XP CD and boot computer from the CD and wait for setup to load.
  • At the Setup Notification screen, press Enter to continue.
  • At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, hit Enter to continue.
  • Read the Windows XP Licensing Agreement and press F8 to agree.
  • On the Xp Setup screen, you'll create an installation partition, but first some housekeeping. If you have any existing partitions you must delete all of them before proceeding.  After deleting all partitions, select "Unpartitioned space" and pressing Enter. And then press Enter again to confirm the partition size as is (it should already be set to the maximum size).
  • Next, select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system" and press Enter. Xp will now install.
If the same error appears then the hard drive is probably bad.
