Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
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.
