Re: no bootable device--please restart system

I'd suggest posting your entire model number.  it is printed on the bottom of your computer.  do not provide the s/n.


Also, this message indicates that the computer cannot find a working OS on any of the drives attached.  What were the circumstances that led up to this point?  Were you updating drivers via service station?  The more information you can provide the better.

Can you boot into your BIOS? To see if any of your hardware has changed. Such as your Hard Drive is your either first or second boot.

Sounds as if an update caused a conflict.

One other question, during your updating, did you at anytime loose power or accidentally shut off power to your laptop?

This would cause this problem also.
