Open the hard drive bay and make sure the hard drive is properly seated. close bay
reboot and enter bios to see if hard drive is detected in bios, if the hard drive is detected and still will not boot use recovery console to recover the OS.<ALT><F10>
If the bios does not recognize tthe hard drive, replace hard drive.

These are the same thing , they will both disappear when you install the audio driver
Click under Windows XP Drivers And Utilities And click Audio Driver
Always check the manufacturers site for your drivers!

Its possible the computer is trying to boot from another device, as the computer starts up hit the F12 key, this should bring up boot options, select HDD if it's in the list.
If not hit F2 as it starts and enter the BIOS, look for the boot option and set the HDD as the first boot device, hit F10, save the changes and exit.
The computer will restart and hopefully boot into the operating system
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.

If you don't have documents, pictures,
etc on the hard drive that you need to backup, try running system
recovery by doing the following (not sure if this works on the version
with a solid state drive):
1. Turn on the computer
2. Press and hold Alt + F10
3. Click on Restore System to Factory Default
4. Ensure the netbook is plugged into AC power instead of running off the battery and click OK
* This will return your netbook to the condition it was in from the manufacturer.

This sounds awful, but a friend just had the same problem - no bootable device. He had dropped it, hitting keyboard first. Now he thumped it on the opposite side and IT WORKED! Must have been a loose connector
