No Bootable Device Found

No Bootable Device Found

I have an Acer Aspire V3-371 Series laptop here and it can't boot as it cannot find any Bootable device. I originally tried to reinstall Windows, that didn't work. So I tested the original HDD. It was defect to some degree. So I changed it out for a new one and installed Windows again. The PC worked! But just for a week or so before the exact same problem occurred again... Now I'm out of ideas what it could be.

I just flashed my Bios with an old (2016) insydeH20 bios and that was dumb-got the error “no bootable device”. I replaced the original her with an sdd a year or so back so changed the boot order, didn’t work. Here’s what WILL get you back to bootable.

Been there done that, sometimes when my bettery runs out and the pc shuts down the bios changes the boot option from legacy bios to uefi, but you can go to bios and change it back, it goes both ways, it depends in which of them you have installed the windows because the type of format they use for the hard drive is different..

I took Techblogchain’s advice and changed from UEFI to Legacy. That just made things worse. Could it be that the SSD drive is broke? I can’t tell when all I see a a black screen with :

@Mykrashna sateesh here is what I've found, solution to my problem, no bootable device found, well the SSD was burned. Even though I was able to hear the HDD's clicks.
