Acer - Aspire will not startup

by Steve Kamella
(Kitchener ONT. Canada)

When starting up the computer, screen comes up with ACER logo and two options on bottom left corner. DEL: enter setup or F12: Boot Menu.

If I hit DEL, I get the blue screen with all kinds of Computer info like tech data about computer CMOS setup utility, specs etc.

If I hit F12 I get a black screen that tells me to Reboot and select proper Boot device.
Any idea or help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You need open the computer case and double check that the hard disk drive is properly connected to the motherboard with a flat cable and it is properly connected to the power supply with a flat cable having many colored wires.

Does it make any noise. There is a chance that it it's faulty and your computer can't start the operating system.
