    Means exactly what it says. It can't find any device (ie. hard drive) to boot to.

    paul01, to boot FROM. :D
    Check in BIOS if it shows HDD, if not try changing cable, if HDD makes strange noise then it means it lost zero track = it's dead. It even can be north bridge fault(IDE/SATA controller fault). :biggrin5:
    more info please.
