    Hi . I am facing the problem “Reboot and select proper boot device “ from one week.but the laptop usually starts working again after half an hour. One more thing I notice is that my boot option are 0 and 1. Option 0 is hgst hts545050e380 . When laptop is showing the error, I went into bios menus , boot option 0 is missing . But when laptop starts working again , the boot option 0 appears. I uploaded the images , you can see. Is my hard drive failing ? I have format and installed new windows but still nothing happened. Please help me fast . a help will be much appreciated. Waiting for you reply

    Probably however you will not know for sure until you test the drive. Find out the mfg ie WD, Seagate, whatever and download the diagnostic. Note you need the boot or dos version NOT the windows version. Boot the system with the bootable media and test the drive. Do both the long and short tests.

    Already told you. First find out who mfg the drive. Download the boot or dos diagnostic and make the bootable media [usb or cd] Boot the system and run the diagnostic.
