Not sure if this question has been answered before but my laptop screen is displaying this message:
"Default boot device missing or boot failed. Insert recovery media and hit any key. Then select boot manager to choose a new boot device or boot recovery media."

I don't know how this happened or how to fix it, I read online that I would need to access the BIOS setup. I did this but it prompted me to put in a password and I don't know what it is.
Any advice would be really helpful, I need it fixed asap.

Since I'm using someone else's laptop at the moment I don't have the technical specifications but it is an Acer Aspire V5 series Windows 8.
Thank you in advance!
