Default No bootable disk drive

What does this mean? I have a compaq presario that keeps showing this. I put another HDD in and it is saying the same thing. Does it mean the old HDD was buggered and I need to do something to the new one to sort out boot order or anything? or is this not a HDD issue. I have two broken compaq presarios here. One with no screen working and one saying no bootable disk drive. Help. I must be able to get one going? Thanks

Default Re: No bootable disk drive

Make sure there are no USB drives or floppy drives in the computer. Check the BIOS to make sure the Hard Drive is being found and is set to boot first or second. It could also mean that Windows is corrupt on both drives and needs to be reloaded.
