will not go past loading screen.
hi ive got an acer d260 net book. i got it from a friend that passed. im having some big problems with it. question 1, the bottom of it was taken off wrong and the shiny metal foil is torn and some small pieces are missing, would this have some thing to do with my second problem. question 2, when i turn it on it goes to the acer screen then goes to a loading screen that says,

no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key
i dont have any disks for it all i have is the net book the charger and the dvd rom drive. is it broke or is there some thing i can do like flash the bios.
doug, I think the biggest problem right now is this "no bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key" that means that your computer does either not have, or can't read, the operating system. If you can, enter the BIOS and see if your Acer still recognizes the hard drive. You can also set the boot order to the digital drive and try to boot it with a live Linux CD. Of course you will have to either borrow an OS disk or download a linux version. I prefer Puppy Linux, due to its simplicity. If you can access the hard drive with a different OS, you may have to get your version OS and reformat your drive. Hope this helps, good luck.
