Please do try these troubleshooting steps that I suggested to others who had the same problem.
- Start by disconnecting other devices connected to that laptop.
- Next is to load Aptio Setup screen and make sure that the HDD is set as the first boot device.
- If these will not work try loading BIOS into its default by pressing F9 while your in Aptio setup screen.
- Lastly, remove the HDD off the laptop and see if it will get pass the Aptio setup screen because if it does that confirms that its the HDD that is faulty.
