notebook presario CQ57
windows 7 home premium
Error message at boot time, "Boot device not found, please install OS on your hard drive"
If I go into Bios and restore defaults and save on exit the notebook boots up correctly. But next time I power up again I have to follow the same procedure.
No known changes made to my system recently that would of caused this.

Enter BIOS setup by tapping/holding the F10 key immediately after powering on the laptop.Use Diagnostics to test your hdd.
