All of a sudden one day I started getting the "Reboot and select proper boot device" error on my Samsung notebook (model NP-QX410). I havent been installing new drives or anything unusual. The black error screen also says media test failure, check cable. I opened up the back but couldnt see anything unusual as far as the cable goes although I am not particularly computer literate. After reading other tips I also went into BIOS to check the boot order. 1 was AHCI CD: P1: TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-U633J and 2 was IDD HDD: N/A (this setting is the default). I imagine the N/A is causing the issue
I've read that sometimes this sort of error can be fixed by reinstalling the windows software although I no longer have the installation discs, and also given the messages above I'm not sure thats the right answer anyway.
Any help anyone could give me would be very much appreciated! I am trying to avoid getting hosed by a computer store if its something an ordinary person can fix themselves
