(Im asking for a friend.)

 

Im having trouble after resetting the CMOS, after i reset it by pulling the battery out and putting it back in, i was prompted to choose between loading the default values and doing a setup. I chose to keep the default values, after that it showed nothing but a black screen for about 10 minutes. I held down the power button until the computer turned off, and when i turned it back on it said there was no bootable device. What do i do now?

Access your BIOS on boot and change the legacy/EUFI boot option. If you have Win7 change to legacy, if you have Win8/10 change to EUFI.

This wasn't the issue it turns out, the hard drive wasn't getting any power because it wasn't plugged in properly (cable probably got knocked loose when he was resetting the cmos).

 

Thanks for your help though!
