My sons computer when you turn it on goes to the Gateway logo page then says No Bootable Device.   Hit Any Key.  And the Ok.  Goes to Boot Manager page.  Shows Boot Options Menu and the up arrow and down arrow to change option.  Enter to select an option. Nothing else shows.  You hearing clicking.  To turn computer off you have to press the on button.  We have taken hard drive and and put it back in to see if it was loose.  Wasn't loose. No warranty left on computer. Does this sound like he needs a new hard drive?  Thanks.
