What is this "terminal" you write about? Could it be a BIOS screen?
First it looks like it's in terminal and makesays a ticking noise. Then it starts to load but freezes. If I press anything at that point it makes a very loud beep. After that it goes back to terminal and says check cable connection! No boot device found. How much will it cost to fix? Also, how can I upload a photo of the process if needed? I'm new here.
