    Maybe you can post it in your profile instead of making a thread?

    Also have you tried watching youtube searching for some tutorial videos? Because they really helped me with a similar issue like yours

    Which is why you don't send it to Dell. Unless it's under warranty Dell will try and scam you to increase their profits and add the unnecessary money they forced you to pay on their financial statements to make it look good. I suggest the repair shops that are much smaller compared to dell (and have a good reputation). They will help you fix it and charge you way less than what Dell does.

    As for the "no bootable device" did you do anything previously that led up to the error? Because its most often one or many hardware components (mostly hard drive) that have a loose connection. If that is the case unplug your pc (not turn it off, electrical current is still running when your pc is turned off and can electrocute you) and reinstall the hardware components.

    If that doesn't work, you may have a virus on your computer which requires a repair guy to tackle it.

    If its neither both, you're left with some level of corruption or internal damage to one (or many) hardware components (most likely hard drive). The level of corruption likely would've destroyed some files which are critical to booting up. To fix that you would need someone who is an absolute computer techy guy, unless you can do it yourself :p

    You don't necessarily need a compute to access the skyblocks store. It is accessible on any device (I hope) so there's no need to worry about it. You don't need skytitan to play skyblock :p
    Only reason I have a rank is cause I had friends gift it to me

    As for windows 10, unfortunately they have some problems with crashing often. I have no clue why they always crash. My PC has windows 10 and often crashes or freezes a lot. I'm guessing it is the operating system and I would need to reinstall it

    I just wrote a full tutorial on how to enter the BIOS and reselect the correct boot device.
    Went to post it, thought I should check it is definately needed.
    Realised as Archer said and you confirmed, your primary storage device is probably just corrupt and doesn't need reselecting, as much as the OS just needs reinstalling (and possible drive replacement)

    5 minutes of work at 4:30am all for nothing eh?

    Hope you get it fixed though haha
