Laptop says no bootable device

My laptop hpG60 got a message from hp to check for viruses. After I allowed hp to run a diagnostic it suggested I backup my files. The blank DVDs and CDs were not recognized by my laptop so I had noting to back files up externally but it specified that my files would be backed up in :F of hard drive. As it proceeded to give commands I followed and at the end I got a black screen saying no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key. Well I don't have a boot disk so how do I resolve this problem?

Well that's no fun. The "no bootable device" message means that the computer can't find any drives that have an operating system installed on them that the computer can boot up. In your case, the Windows operating system should be installed on the C partition of your computer's hard drive. For whatever reason, the computer isn't finding it there. Best course of action at this point would be to try access the factory recovery partition by continually tapping f11 immediately after turning on the computer. Then you will be guided through the steps. My concern is that if the OS partition of the hard drive became corrupted, its likely the others may have too.

thanks for answering, I just saw this! I tried it and at least it didn't keep repeating no bootable... (only once) Do you know if I can buy a boot disk for this? I'm not too good with computers... thanks for your help

You can make a boot device for free, and put it on a flash drive so you can reuse it or put an updated operating system on it in the future, Then keep it around for just these emergencies.

If you have a laptop that's middle-aged, like 10 years, you could have problems finding an up to date, safe operating system to reload on it. What I do is erase the original OS and put a beginner's distribution of Linux on them. You can try a couple and see which you like. Best to start with ZorinOS, Linux Mint, Pop!_OS, or Ubuntu. All are free to download.

There's an easy way to make a bootable drive. Find a working computer attached to the internet, download and install the Ventoy program onto your flash drive. Then you can download one or more operating system ISOs from the distro's websites. Most other ISO installing software has to add extras that enable you to boot from it, but Ventoy does it for you.

When you boot from the flash drive (you may have to hit the function key that lets you do this, like F12 or F2, or escape or something, whatever appears on your screen), Ventoy gives you a menu of ISOs on your flash drive that you can boot. Try one, and if it works you'll have a fully functional OS with the stock apps it comes with, and you can use that to get back to work, but you won't be able to save anything. Nothing will be installed. This is a good time to explore your hard drive, see if it's OK, and backup anything on it to another drive.

When you've backed up and see that your HDD is OK, you can install the OS onto the HDD and you're back in business. Ventoy also works with Windows ISOs (I haven't tried). But after trying Linux for a while you won't want to go back to an obsolete, bloaty OS like Windows 7.

I'm writing this on my 10 year old Chromebook running Linux Mint.

The HDD/SDD is dead. Try replacing it!
