Fix - No Bootable Device Error in Acer laptop



Hello folks. I'm going to write about a strange and a scary problem I faced yesterday with my new laptop (hope this will help someone).

I recently got an Acer Aspire E 15 laptop and I have been enjoying working on it until last night (I still do). It's one of those laptops which you can buy for a reasonable price with some good performance. However, last night, my laptop suddenly turned off while I was working. I thought it was because my battery was empty. I switched it on again, and saw this scary message saying "No Bootable Device" with an icon of a magnifying glass. (need not to say, I was doing some important work and I had not commit my work. I thought my hard disk was gone.)

Luckily, I found some easy solutions to fix it. Here's what you have to do if you get this error.

  1.  Restart your laptop.
  2.  As soon as you see the "acer" logo coming on the screen, press F2 key. 
  3.  It will take you to the bios screen. Now, from the bios settings, change your boot method from UEFI to Legacy. (If you are lucky, you will have this option).
  4.  Press F10 to save and exit bios. Now your laptop will boot normally.

That's it guys. This is the method which worked for me. This might not work for some people because this could happen for any reason, like a hard disk failure. If your had disk is damaged, this method won't obviously fix it :) But you can always try.

I also found that disconnecting and reconnecting the hard disk cable also worked for some people. Please let us know if this helped you. Don't forget to mention any other methods you know in the comments below.
