My son has an emachine laptop. i replaced the Hard drive a few months ago and its been working fine. One day it wouldn't start, he  heard something ratling inside and the Hard drive had come away from the fitting. I put it back and now it wont start. I get " Check cable connection pxe-mof existing intel pxe rom no bootable device. Insert disc and press any key". I put the Windows 7 disc in the tray and pressed "Install Now" I thought i'd reinstall a fresh copy of Windows 7 as he was getting lots of infections and popups. I get the message "We cannot find any drives. to get a storage driver click load driver. I press browse and i think ive tried every option but it still cannot find any drivers. There are other options like repair and ive tried those. If anyone can help me i would be grateful. Thanks

I'd remove and connect hard drive to another computer to see if it's working.

I suspected that it might have to do with the hard drive but I'm glad you solve the problem.

I too like a good bodge, but there is usually a screw under the cover which holds the drive in place. Did you replace it or do you now have a small unidentified screw rolling around the house ?

I would like the OP to confirm it but if the emachines was an older model the drive was possibly 9.5mm thick. Newer laptop drives are 7mm thick. Maybe the paper was needed to shim the drive.
