Hi,

Whilst playing music on spotify my computer went into a plain screen that said NO HARD DISK DETECTED.

I pressed F1 and it just bleeped.

Pressed F5 and it's running diagnostics, which I'm not sure how to read? I've had a failing battery warning for a while and I'm wondering if this could be the problem?

Can someone please help in how to fix? And most importantly, retrieve my data?
Please help

Thanks!

Hello,

Try this 1

Go to BIOS and look for the option "SATA Mode". Change the mode --> Save

the setting and exit from it.

Good Luck

Hello,

Turn ON you laptop and keep tapping the F2 key. If you failed to get into BIOS then tap the DEL key after turning ON your laptop.
Good Luck
