"No Bootable Device -- insert boot disk and press any key" I get that error message on this laptop, Model: Compaq Presario CQ60 Windows Vista Home 32-bit

That error happened two days ago, I backed up my files, did a system restore, same issue.

I can use the OS though... I have to boot it with Super Grub.. otherwise it wont start up

it is not trying to boot from the network or anything else, I've made sure it was trying to boot from HDD and still same issue.

The hard drive is not defected as it has the OS installed and I can log on to it and use the programs in the laptop.

I dont mind using Super Grub everytime I turn on my computer but it will get annoying in the future

at the moment I am trying to use a repair using a windows vista repair cd.. its asking for my product key before it continues.. problem is the key is faded.. so we'll see if that works..

any help will be appreciated
