No Bootable Drives Detected


The Quad CPU test passed, Memory passed, and then it started testing drive: ST3750528AS (9VP29G2Y) which passed, hp DVD-RAM GH40L (941CD057586) which passed. Warning: No bootable drives detected. My computer is barely 2 yrs old and used mainly for my children to do their school work. If the system is stable after that test.

I ignored this and restarted my computer & successfully got to my desktop. Thank You so much in Advance ! I hope it works for you... It means that the computer will boot to the drive with Windows on it. -----------------------------------------Signature:HP TouchPad - 1.2 GHz; 1 GB memory; 32 GB storage; WebOS/CyanogenMod 11(Kit Kat)HP Phoenix 860-170VR; i7-6700K http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Operating-Systems-and-Recovery/BIOHD3-Error/td-p/1185447

Unplug power, press power button while cord is unplugged. A couple of weeks ago on start up my PC turned to a black screen and said " DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND PRESS ENTER " I ran system could the cd-dvd drive be bad even though it tests good? when the screen goes blank it also turns my keyboard and mouse off.

  • It tells you the power supply in the system is becoming unstable.By taking a slight load off it confirms it.The second is the physical hard drive it`s self even if not
  • If recovery options come up then you can just exit out of them, and we can rethink the problem.

The only way to solve the problem is by replacing the hard drive. Biohd3 If HD is listed then choose that and see if you get a different message. ALSO TRIED TO CLEAR CMOS SETTINGS STILL NOT ABLE TO USE RECOVERY DISCS. I hit "Enter:Accept" The screen went black and "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER _" popped up again.

Still no luck. Warning: No bootable drives detected. Under Main it listed the drives. 1st Drive [None] 2nd Drive [TSSTcorp.....] 3rd Drive [None] 4th Drive [ST31.......] I ran another diagnostic test and received the same error code: BIOHD-3. My diagnosis would be a failing HD.

error code BioHD-3 Discussion in 'Windows Vista' started by MrsMarcos, Mar 6, 2011. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? Diagnostics on both events indicated a BIOHD3 Error. I've never had a problem with this desktop, and I can't remember it ever freezing up on me or shutting down randomly.

Have I completely lost all the information on my hard drive? Also, I heard that hdds from hp only work with hp motherboards, is this true? BleepingComputer is being sued by Enigma Software because of a negative review of SpyHunter.

You could also try just rebooting say 30 times in a row to see if you get lucky once and it is recognized.

That means no software can even see it either. This site is completely free -- paid for by advertisers and donations. i'm not super familiar with tech-y specifics. :s any newbie-friendly advice on how to check if the power supply is bad or if the physical hard drive is messed up? but start with those.

I did the diagnostic test everything ok but the bootable path. please help... sach2, Dec 10, 2012 #8 charlieken80 Private E-2 Hi Global, are you using a Laptop or Desktop? If not , you can download it at the hard disk manufacturer's website Which brand is the hard disk?
