Boot device went missing. What was the last thing you did with your computer?

I fell asleep watching youtube, but I failed to turn my computer off/shut my screen. I closed it, brought it downstairs when I woke up and opened it only to see that message. I went to options and set the BIOS to harddrive but that didn't do anything either

There's nothing wrong with what you did. Closing the laptop it normally perfectly safe to do.

Without more details to the background of the whole thing, this could be anything like simply age or a defective drive

I would take the drive out and test it on another system to see what happens then, to see if the drive is good or bad.

Go to bios and set it to default.
Most system these days will use achi mode.
For laptops preinstalled with win8, secure boot has to be enabled.

Another option, insert the os disc your system is running. Boot up from it and then click repair computer.
Use the stand alone disc, not the recovery disc. Dont have then download Microsoft's win7 repair disc from the web.
