    Hello all,

    A friend of mine has Acer Aspire E1-521 with replaced HDD model: TOSHIBA MQ01ABF050M
    After the replacement laptop was working for several days and then "no bootable device" error occurred.
    When I enter Bios V1.06 the F1-F12 keys don't work.

    Could you please give me an advice in order to resolve the issue?

    Kind regards,
    Vhristova

    When you enter the bios, does it list the hard drive ?

    Go download the MS Media Creation Tool. Run it to Generate a Windows setup DVD or USB memory stick. Boot with that and on second screen choose Repair.

    Maybe the HDD that got shipped was a refurbished one. Send it back again.
