Select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device
What's wrong... Please write below.
Now, after attempting to reboot I am greeted by an error message. I see the Asus logo, which isthen followed by a flashing underscore (_) then the error message appears.
The message reads:
"reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."
I have checked my boot priority in BIOS and 1st is my HDD and 2nd is ATAPI CDROM.
Sometimes when I boot my computer (approx. once every 3 boot ups) windows 7 won't start. So when this happens a black screen with white text appears saying: "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in select boot device". Obviously I've installed windows 7,
Also sometimes, after my computer was in sleep mode (so I just resume with my computer rather then booting it up from scratch) my computer sometimes crashes (blue screen with with text). So to me it seems like my computer got problems with either booting up (starting windows) and resuming windows after sleep mode.
I've checked all cables towards my HDD (where windows is installed on), tried replacing them. Also tried switching SATA ports. Nothing helped. My system specs:
My laptop shows the following message when I turn it on-

I can't get past this screen to log in and as this is my only computer I'm pretty desperate! Not very good with computers so please try keep replies simple!
I have had this problem for a while now but it always went away after I rebooted a couple times. It always says my HDD is not present then it'll say it's there after a while. I checked kinda, and my Harddrive is still intact.
I was going to do a factory reset, it worked once for me but I cancelled to see if my laptop would load and it did. Now that I'm trying to factory reset it it won't come up.

Since I few weeks I've been having problems with my PC. At random moment the pc shuts down or a blue screen appears. I haven't installed any new software or hardware since this problem.
When the pc restarts after a blue screen, a message appears "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key". Other times the screen just freezes and I have to restart manually.
I've done multiple test for errors in memory etc.
Does anyone recognize this problem and knows how to fix it?
I've added some pictures of system info and blue screen,
I used to get the error of booting to a black screen and it would read "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media and press any key" I read in multiple forums and topics that it was a hdd failure and returned it to manufacturer after trying a fresh install of windows 7, I then received a new one and now am having the problem of booting to a black screen and to no avail as before even with a fresh install not booting properly.
I have tried the recovery console to repair boot sequence, I checked bios and boot order is correct and the proper hdd is selected as primary. I tried clearing CMOS (using both the jumper and taking the battery out) today and problem is still persisting.
Disconnected extra hdd and addition accessories such as sd card reader drive and no progress has been made. read it might be display driver and I tried to do device management from command prompt in recovery window and cannot access it (might be using wrong commands).
Ill leave it at that for now and I appreciate any help in advance. I should also state that I made this pc 5 months ago or so.
I wanted to reinstall Windows 7 to my two years old PC and improve performance a little bit by changing one of my two disks by a SSD. My pc is a laptop with two hard discs. So I started with creating the recovery disk (6 needed) from my originial HD.
After, I removed the two HD and install the brand new SSD. I started the recovery process on the new disk and the installation seemed to be ok. After 1h45 of copying data, the installation reboot and give me this error message : "Reboot and Select proper boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key" I used DISKPART trying to understand the structure of the disk and here's what I got :
I recently bought a DIY computer package from Tigerdirect. I put all the parts together, making sure to handle the parts correctly. Once everything was hooked-up, hardware-wise, I tried to install Windows 7 off of a friend's USB drive.
It almost worked, but it requested that I insert a disk into the drive, which I couldn't do.
I bought a brand new Windows 7 OEM version. Computer still won't boot-up, even though BIOS screen shows that the optical drive is connected. After checking the boot order sequence several times, so I bought a cheap DVDROM.
Both optical drives are made by LG (not sure if relevant) but neither work. In fact, neither one would even spin-up the disk. Message on screen reads: 'Reboot and Select proper boot device, or insert boot media into boot device and press any key.'
