Pc starting to error 601

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion 15
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)


I’m unable to start PC, on turning on it shows error 601( battery alert) and when I press “Enter”,

it shows “start up menu”. After pressing Enter again it is showing “ No bootable device — Insert boot disk and press any key” and I can’t do anything thereafter except to press power button.


I had run and  passsed the extended  test for hard drive. I have enabled legacy support. Even then it is showing me the same problem.  I can only do something at Start up menu only.

Please try these steps - 


1. Shutdown the computer.

3. Press F11 once for System Recovery.

4. Choose the Keyboard Layout.

5. Click on Troubleshoot.

6. Go to Recovery Manager and click on System Restore.

7. Choose a Restore point or a Restore date when the computer was working fine.

8. Click on OK to initialize the System Restore.


 If the issue still persists, re-install the operating system. Back-up the data and try these steps - Using the HP Cloud Recovery Tool
