My laptop, when I turn it on, keeps making a buzzing sound and says that there is no bootable device available. I don't know whether it is available to be fixed or if it's gone forever.

Anyone here to help?
Still need some advice.

[HR][/HR] Hi there.

I'm a bit useless when it comes to Laptops, so go easy.

I'm looking a laptop which I can use to watch videos and browse the internet with ease. I'm also looking to play Football Manager 2012 in a high speed. My budget is £300, maybe £350 at a push. Would this amount of money get me what I need? I have listed the recommended spec for the stated game above.

OS – Windows XP/Vista/W7
Processor – XP : 1.4GHz or Faster; Vista/W7 : 2.0GHz or Faster
Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4, Intel Core, AMD Athlon
Memory – XP : 512MB RAM; Vista/W7 : 1.0GB RAM
Hard Drive Space – 2GB
DVD-Drive – 4x Speed
Video Card – 128MB.
Supported Chipsets – Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 or greater; Intel 82915G/82910GL or greater.
Earlier cards may only display 2D Match Viewer Mode and are not supported. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported.
Sound Card – DirectX 9.0c compatible

My Acer Aspire is finally beginning to crack up and I don't have the energy to re-format it again. Got ripped off at John Lewis 2 years ago by paying £300 for it!

So any ideas will be appreciated. Cheers!

My laptop has either a corrupted hard drive or OS. Literally so annoying as I have so many old photos and college work that I need to access.

Any suggestions would be fantastic!
