No Boot Device - please restart system
I have a dell inspiron duo netbook - i switched it on and the above message plays. I have pressed F2 and ran a diagnostic check and everything is ok. How do I sort this out or restart the system as any key i press just repeats the same message on the screen. Thanks!

This would get better response in the Hardware Forum than in the Tech Related News Forum. You can click Report and ask a moderator to move it for you.

This.

On to topic:

I believe that this means it cannot detect a OS (Operating System) which means your windows or mac has been deleted. basically your Hard Drive has nothing on it.

Could i ask what operating system you had installed on the laptop?
Were you using the computer when this occured?

If you have your OS cd then put it in and re-install windows just follow the prompts on screen.

Mostly agree with Flyer--the hard drive is not detected or the master boot record on it is not recognized. If the hard drive is detected you can can probably repair the boot if you have the installation CD or DVD.
