Hello, please could somebody try and advice i recently had a problem with my notebook it fell on floor and when i tried to restart it would say this reboot and select proper boot device so did few things like stating from f9 and f8 keys but all i get is a blank screen thanks for your help
Here is way to create your own bootable CD or USB thumb drive Ubuntu Desktop
It gets you a chance to try booting up without your needing your hard drive.
If you can get Ubuntu up and running I think you've shown the laptop is OK apart from the hard drive.
After you download and burn the image - use the F12 key when you power on the laptop to get an option to boot from the CD or USB thumb drive.
