Just installed a new har drive into my Compaq CQ57. Ordered the recovery disks from HP. Put the first disk in disk drive as instructed and turned power back on. Now I'm getting a "No bootable device - insert boot disk" message. I thought that was what I had gotten from HP? how to recover system and then reinstall Windows 7?
I replaced my WD 250GB RPM 5400 with a WD 500GB RPM 7200 and I get a "No boot sector on internal hard drive" "No bootable devices" I have both original disks ( Operating System Windows 7 and Applications.) I've checked the BIOS and it shows the new HDD. I put the Operating System CD in and started the computer than I hit F12 went to CD/DVD and hit enter I received the message "No boot sector on Internal hard drive" "No bootable devices"
I bought a new Dell Inspiron 5547 from US.From past ten days its sayings No Bootable device found error while starting.I've checked BIOS setting HDD is not detected.But after few hours I'm able to open it.After few minutes the disk space reaches to maximum due to svchost.exe process.
I just formated my acer travelmate p253 and when I set the boot order to boot from disk and restarted I got the error sayingPXE-E61: Media test failure, check cablePXE-M0F: Exiting Brodcom PXE ROM No Bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key. And I have tryed every thing ro get my laptop to work I removed the hdd and put it back set the bios to default inserted the win 7 disk and set the boot order, inserted a usb with win 8.1 in and set the boot order.Nothing
My laptop suddenly hanged. When I pressed Ctrl + Alt + Del, the menu did not come on. When I repeated, it did not shut down. I manually shut down the laptop. When I restarted, it said cannot find hard disk drive and no bootable devices.
Someone checked it out and they say the drive has crashed. Is it possible the links are loose? Is it possible to recover data from drive?
I am having a problem with this beast. I was playing MW2 and suddenly, the laptop stopped responding. The whole thing was just frozen. Nothing I could do but press the power button to turn it off.
After that, I turn it on and got the message: "internal hard disk not found To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive No bootable devices-- strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics."
I was thinking about "reseating" the hard drive but do not dare to do so. What could it happen if the laptop just sat on the table all the time. Under it is a cooler. I did not even touch the keyboard ( I use a wireless one). Any idea how to fix it.
internal hard drive disk not found; no bootable devices; start up repair finds no solution..... I have reseated the hard drive several times. the computer runs extremely slow. Dell Data Safe had recommended replacing the hard drive ''couple of months" ago.
I have desktop internal hard-drive that I use as an external hard-drive via usb/sata cable.
Recently I cloned my Internal laptop hard drive to the desktop internal hard drive that I mentioned above, but the problem is that whenever I connect the desktop hard-disk again to my laptop via usb/sata calbe the drive doesn't show up, it is detected by the BIOS and Windows Device manager but it doesn't show up along my laptop internal hard drive with an independent letter like it used to before I made the cloning.
I have a Thinkpad Twist. I started it up and got a thermal sensing error before the boot screen. I looked up the error on various forums, tried turning it off to see if the message would still be there. When I rebooted it, it went away. Should I still be concerned for the fan or CPU?
My laptop has been overheating before this, but it's never shut itself down, even after the error message.
I am trying to fix my GF laptop model STUDIO 1535. This laptop is two years old or so. It was showing randomly blue screens on win xp sp3, so I checked forums and recommended to do a cleaning. I opened the lid, cleaned the fan ( it had a big ball of fur that prevented the fan to move) and cleaned the rest of the mb with the vacuum cleaner. Now it doesn't work anymore. I tried to disconnect and connect the HD but still the same error. I ran the diagnostic and gave me this error 2000-0141.
I have a Inspiron M5040 (mid 2011) I ran a system test and was informed that there was a drive critical error with a hard drive ST95032 5AS SATA Disk Device FAILED... What does that mean, is it fixable and how much?
how to troubleshoot the Hard Disk (3F0) error message.
3F0 can be caused by 3 things
1. Bad hard drive or partition structure, erase the entire hard drive then use HP recovery discs to attempt reinstall of the OS and all partitions.
2. Bad hard drive data cable that connects it to the motherboard, replace the cable
3. Bad sata controller on the motherboard replaces the motherboard or laptop.
Now, the first step, is to test the Hard Drive out in the BIOS if you can get into it.
You will need to boot up the notebook and press F10. If you can get into the BIOS you will need to run the self-test. Here is a document showing you how to run the test. If you can't get into the BIOS I would suggest removing the HDD and then try getting into the BIOS again. Once you remove the HDD boot the notebook up again and press F10. If you can get into the BIOS, then the HDD is bad.
Here is a video showing you how to remove the HDD:
I have a Pavilion dv7 1245dx with Windows Vista 64 Bit bought 2009 at Best Buy. It slid off the arm of the couch onto a carpeted floor while shut down. Next day started ok, got into yahoo, facebook, then kind of froze up. Eventually, would not do anything, manually shut it down, started it back up. Black screen, 'No Bootable Device-Insert Boot Disc And Press Any Key'. It will not accept recovery discs that I made after purchase. Start up test ok, memory test ok, hard disk failed 'Boot Drive Not Found'. Caps lock light is blinking. I saw something in a forum about resetting or reseating the hard drive but no explanantion how to do it.
There's a "disk read error occured" when I startup and it won't boot into windows at all. I did a hard disk test in BIOS and the Short DST failed and the failure id is GTU23F-5QF788-XD6V5F-60UR0 for Hard Disk 1. I know there's an 80 SSD and 750 HD but which one failed?
If the ssd failed can I use the 750gb HD or does it need both?
If I do need to replace the SSD can I replace it with a regular HD (on a budget) and what size drive do I need? 2.5?
I experienced my first BSOD today on my 5 month old Inspiron. I was a little concerned but figured it'd be find and just restart. However my laptop never restarted, instead I was greeted by 'no bootable device found. Press any key to restart'
Now I've browsed the Internet and taken a few steps, firstly I ran the diagnostics in the bios and it was saying my hard drive wasn't installed. Then I followed a guide on this forum. I changed the Sata from ACHI to Intel Smart Technology, however now I'm unable to get back into the boot settings and instead my laptop just stalls on the Dell boot up screen.
All this has literally happened out of nowhere today, I run my own business and I rely heavily on my laptop. I can't afford to lose any documents. I'm baffled how it can just malfunction out of nowhere.
I have an XPS M1330 and just recently it starts to make the eject noise whenever I boot up or come out of sleep mode. I don't think it's a hardware issue since I tried to install Windows 7 but went back to Vista since my drivers weren't working, and could not be installed under Windows 7. I've tried disabling the driver, deleting Upper and LowerFilters in the registry, uninstalling the driver (which actually appears to reinstall automatically after reboot or sleep), downloaded a program to disable Auto Eject, went to AutoPlay in Control Pabel and unchecked that, and uncheck it from the POST sequence by entering the BIOS setup upon bootup (The F2 Button Setup). (A diagnostics check found the drive to be running fine.) I admit, I accidentally dropped the laptop, but since I've been able to install the lastest driver, insert a disk and it successfully reads it, I've disregarded hardware as the issue. For some reason, the drive tries to eject a nonexistent disk whenever either the E:/ is clicked in My Computer, bootup, or coming from sleep. This problem doesn't occur when there's a disk in the drive, but I don't want to keep inserting a dummy disk just to cancel the noise because I think this might be some auto eject BIOS command that might have accidentally been triggered. Other than this, the drive seems to be functioning normally. Who wants to say it's a normal sound, this didn't occur before. I know the CD-ROM quickly "wakes up" upon bootup, but this is an auto eject noise.

I had a hard disk fail and had to reinstall Windows 7 on a new disk, but I could not read the COA. I ordered the recovery disks and now have a slight problem. When I try and boot to the System Disk 1 I get a no bootable media on disk message. I installed Windows 7 from a DVD I have for another computer and it works fine, but I can not validate Windows. How can I make the laptop run System Disk 1?

I have an Aspire 5733Z laptop which occasionally gives me the above message. When it does, I leave it alone for 3 or 4 days and when I turn it back on, it works again. I have already gone once to a technician, but when I got there, my laptop was working fine. I have noticed that if I demand to work with Mozilla Firefox or some complex video sites, it crashes How do I go about getting a boot disk?
I just bought the Probook 4710s 5 days ago, and some times when I try to start the computer, it just wrights on the screen Non system disk or disk error, please replace and press any key... I don't have any CD or DVD in CD/DVD unit or any USB keys... when I try to scan the hard disk it reports to me No hard disk found. Every now and than it starts Windows normaly, but it keeps repeating frequently the same boot problem and not beeing able to start my comp.
Does it mean that the hard disk is bad or broken, or it will be soon...or what? Should I return the laptop and ask for replacement?
