Acer 5749 Laptop problem

by Himanshu

My laptop stops in the middle of doing something. Sometimes it starts doing chkdsk and sometimes brings to a black screen where it says, "no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

I have uploaded two photos.

Please see and let me know what could be the trouble.

Is there any trouble with the hard drive (HDD)?

What is the best way to find out if my HDD is in a healthy condition or not?

no bootable device

This is definitely a fault with the hard drive. Although, this issue can also be due to the hard disk drive cable or the hard drive is simply loose. You can check if is it loose by opening the cover underneath the laptop.

Plus, on this site, we also have very useful information regarding hard drive health. It is here:

HDD diagnostic software

Maybe you can try to repair it

Here is some more info

GSmartControl can be downloaded here (just scroll down to see Windows OS).

From the images is hard to say what the problem is. If you still can use the laptop then install GSmartcontrol and see if there are any red lines in the report. If you can't use it anymore then please take the hard drive out and connect it to a working computer to check it with GSmartControl.
