Default packard bell hdd boot issue

hi guys this is my first post as google didnt hold the results i needed! basically i bought a packard bell laptop for my missus (easynote TM) and when it boots up it tells me "no bootable device selcted press any key" if i get into the BIOS it tells me "HDD model: none" HOWEVER!!! if i keep doing this cycle it eventually works! and its fine, bios picks up the HDD and everythings dandy, no crashes no nothing so what on earth is going on. cheers in advance

Welcome, flenen!

Think your HDD is starting to go bad. Backup everything ASAP and get a new drive. Think that's your only choice.
