Having problems with your HP Mini 1000 Netbook ?

My HP Mini won't reboot.

\015 I tried to turn on my netbook but all I got was information telling me to "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key" but I can only select one boot device. However, this device doesn't seem to be working, because I just continue to get the same screen. It's "Network: Atheros Boot Agent" and it's the only one listed. I don't have CD drive either and I'm in Thailand. I'm only a 16 year old girl on exchange and I have no clue what to do. It won't reboot so I can't see anything on my computer. There's no start menu or anything so I can't even use it. I'm freaking out and I'm scared that I broke it, but I can't ask anyone for help here because they can't understand a word I'm saying.\015

The hard disk cable seems to have got loose. Get into BIOS setup and check if the hard disk is detected. To do this, look for a hint in the first screen that appears with the HP logo. Mostly it will be F2. Hit it before the screen goes off. The main screen will show the devices attached to your laptop. Check if the hard disk is detected(see against the text named Primary Master). If yes, go to Boot tab. Under it see for Boot device priority and select that. Under it make sure your Hard disk is set as the first option.

You will have to access your computers bios im afraid and look for usb legacy device and reboot from there its not an easy thing to do,then set usb as primary boot device it should work
