No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed

Had a power outage. And when I tried to turn my computer back on that error message was on the screen.

Re: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed

Power interruptions are famous for this type error.  It could range from a simple repair to an outright hardware failure.  Start the troubleshooting process by looking in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is still visible.  If it is still detected, then the next step is to see if it is the first device in the startup menu.  If all that is good, then try the diagnostic routine for the hard drive.  Since the model number is not given, that is about the basics of the steps for now.

press the F10 key after you turn on the computer to access the Setup screen. Look for a list of installed devices including a harddrive.
