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.

Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.

Firstly, You need to check the boot sequence in the BIOS . Start your laptop then keep on tapping f1 or f2 then check the boot option. Make sure the Boot priority is the HDD. Secondly, Try to get reboot the computer to factory settings; 1 Ensure all Data is backed up, all data will be deleted.2 Please also ensure that all USB storage devices are removed before starting the recovery process
3 Restart machine
4 When your unit switches back on, wait for the ACER screen then hold down alt & tap f10 repeatedly..
5 Please wait a moment until prompted, -How would you like to restore?-
6 Please select -Restore system to factory default-
7 Enter your defined password or enter six zeros '000000'
8 Click ok
9 Please wait until process completed, this will take 45min - 1hour

ALL personal information on the C: Drive I.E photos, programs, music and documents will be wiped when the above steps are taken. Files located on the D: Drive will be safe from the procedure.

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.

This error message means that the computer is not seeing the hard drive or there is no operating system on the hard drive. In the bios does the computer see the hard drive? The unit may have to have the hard drive replaced.

Open the hard drive bay and ensure it is plugged in correctly. If that isn't the problem, try testing the hard drive. If it's ok, then the motherboard is gone.

Either:
* no elecrical power is reaching the disk-drive
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is not connected
* the disk-drive has "died"

Take the computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting and repair.
