First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

SOURCE: i have a emachine notebook

The motherboard no longer detects a hard disk present - it has died. Replace it and reinstall Windows using the recovery cd that came with the laptop.

How do I fix an ASUS Transformer Book TF101 that's stuck in boot?

  1. Press and hold Power and Vol- until the device reboots and small white text shows up saying press Vol+ within 5seconds for recovery. Do not press Vol+.
  2. It will then prompt you to cold-boot in to either recovery or android, follow the directions on screen to select android and start.
That seems rather annoying to have to do every time you restart the ****** thing. The permanent fix requires either root access via terminal emulator under the installed version of android, or running a remote shell on it with the Android sdk. I chose the latter.
As with all ASDK tomfoolery, start the adb server
adb start-server
Check to make sure the device shows up
adb devices
Start the required remote shell session
adb shell
Run the follow magic command to make everything happy again
echo boot ' dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 bs=1 seek=0
And then reboot the device.

Computer beeping and saying reboot and select proper boot device

When you reboot, go to BIOS, restore factory BIOS settings. If that doesn't help, you'll need to reinstall your OS.

Pc keeps trying to start up but states it needs to reboot and won't. I have tried to insert the operation disc and it does not work either

it probably says insert suitable boot device. If you are trying to boot from a cd go into the bios and set the boot device priority to CD as priority. If hard drive then set hard disk to the top.
