I have an Acer Aspire 1360 Laptop (owned for 2 yrs) which was working fine until it just shut down suddenly and when i turned it back on it keeps saying 'no operating system found'.

So I tried to reformat but realised it wasnt recognising the CD so checked bios.

Checked bios and does not show up the Hard drive or DVD drive which are fully working becuase i put the hard drive into another laptop to transfer my work! The DVD drive also powers up etc etc. I reaally believe they are both fine but for some reason not recognised in bios!!

So now i cannot go any further with the laptop as it turns on -> acer splash screen comes up-> then just stuck on 'no operating system found'.

Any help in identifying or fixing the problem would be much appreciated please!
