Screen says"Reboot and Select proper boot device". This is after I saw a symbol saying something was running, it didn't say what tha was. I inserted a program USB and it said "no operating system" Is it possible to make a USB drive to fix this?. The PC doesn't have an optical drive.
I had earlier set up a wireless connection from a laptop to the PCs printer, running a complete printer installation for this. The printer was switched on and connected to the PC by cable.

Check the BIOS to see if the hard drive is being seen by the motherboard.

Thank you, the H D is seen,. I plugged in a music USB and the screen showed "Missing operating system"

I'm going to take the soft option of restoring from a backup. I may then have to reinstall a few applications.
I'm now going to mark this thread as solved. Thanks to thise who offered advice.
