got a blue screen loading a game...

now it says "reboot and select proper boot device. or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."

i google'd it and went into my bios to reset to default settings. and that didnt help at all.

1) usb key
2) usb hard disc
3) cd/dvd
4) network
5) hard disk
6) usb floppy
7) usb cd/dvd
8) bev
9) uefi: buit-in

Unless your SSD is electrically dead, it should show up in BIOS as a hard disk. The BIOS should also give you a choice of which HDD to boot from.

Go into the full BIOS menu with DEL, not just to the boot option hotkey (F11). Enter the Boot options, then the Boot Priority menu. Do you see the SSD there?
