No bootable device--intert boot disck and press any key

I looked for answers on internet, but didn't have much luck. And again....Brand new computer. ughhh

Look in bios and make sure the HD is the first device in the boot order. If it is and you still have the same problem, boot to the W7 DVD (you'll need to change the boot order again and put the dvd drive ahead of the HD) and run the startup repair options.

Boot order

1. HDD0
2. ATAPI CDROM
3 USB FDD
4 Network boot: atheros boot agent
5. USB HDD
6 USB CDROM


If it is and you still have the same problem, boot to the W7 DVD (you'll need to change the boot order again and put the dvd drive ahead of the HD) and run the startup repair options.


I don't know how to do this.

Plus, I hear a clicking noise on boot up, now. Hope that is not bad.

Sounds like the HD is bad. You can either replace the hd under warranty or do as cryptodan suggests and send the unit back for replacement.

Target with no warranty. Probably returning or exchanging. Don't know if there will be charges?

Thanks to all!

Calling acer. Also, read online of others who bought same computer, same problem and sent it to acer for replace/fix.

Question? Should I buy two year warranty from Target for $80? I wasn't going to, but problems in first 60 days? Crap. :( I'm not tech savy, I know it's not a great computer, but $200 is a lot to me, and I do my best at trying to learn how to fix as many computer issues myself, as I can. I have just had a load of internet and computer issues in the last month. Daily fixes, and I am so frustrated. LOL and sigh.

acer has horrible customer support i hear they dont even have a telephone number to call...good luck with the repair, i'd try returning it to the store and being done with it, the the 200 towards an ipad or something with hp,dell, etc.

To solve that problem go to your BIOS Setting then go Integrated Peripherals then disable LAN Option ROM then go to Advance BIOS Features then select Hard Disk as 1st Boot at  Boot Sequence then press F10 then click OK.
