What does "Check Cable Connection! No Bootable Device -- insert boot disk" mean on an Acer Laptop?

A "no bootable device" error when turning on your computer can be caused by a number of things. First, enter the BIOS by pressing F2 while powering on. Choose the option to restore defaults and restart. If that doesn't work, it's likely a hard drive issue. Ensure that the hard drive is still securely connected. You can then try booting from the recovery CD and doing a repair install. Otherwise, it's possible that the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.
