Dell Alienware M14x :: Checking Media - No Boot Device Found

Jan 22, 2015

I have an Alien M14x that when turned on displays the message "checking media" then the message "no boot device found hit any key to reboot". Of course when you hit a key it restarts the messages. I followed another feed and hit F2 to reset defaults with F9 with no success. When I tried to diagnose with F12 it says hard drive not installed???!! Haven't altered or changed anything and it stopped working less than 2 years old but out of warranty.

Feb 14, 2013

I have an Inspiron 5520 with Win 8 and for the last few days every time the system boots up I get the following message: "checking media (fail)".

Dell Alienware M14x :: SSD Can't Be Detected In BIOS?

Jan 3, 2015

Laptop: M14x



SSD: Seagate ST400FM0012

I was trying to install a new SSD in place of my old HDD. But after I installed the SSD, there is no detection in BIOS. The old HDD works fine. I don't know how to solve this issue. Is it related to the firmware of my SSD? I got this SSD from a friend, it was installed on a server before.

Dell Alienware M14x R1 :: IO Operation Retries

Mar 5, 2013

I have an Alienware M14x R1, which I recently added a Samsung 840 SSD hard drive to. I have kept the original 750GB hard drive in the laptop aswell.

I have installed Windows 8 and the laptop boots and seems to work fine. When I access anything off of the second hard drive (the original drive) the laptop slows right down, occasionally freezing. I check the Event Viewer and there are warnings appearing about every 30 seconds, here are some examples:

The IO operation at logical block address 744a158 for Disk 1 was retried.
The IO operation at logical block address 73bb0a8 for Disk 1 was retried.
The IO operation at logical block address 7291ab8 for Disk 1 was retried.

I updated the driver on the laptop to see if that would fix the problem. After installing all the drivers I found my laptop would no longer boot. I would see the WIndows loading screen (with the spinning progress indicator) and it would continue to seem like it was loading for over an hour. I then powered down the laptop, and Window detected that it failed to boot. WIndows attempted to fix itself, but failed, and I was stuck with a laptop that could only attempt to boot then failed repairing itself.

I reformatted an started again. I was having the same slow access problems to the second hard drive and seeing exactly the same message in the Event Viewer. This time I installed the driver one at a time, rebooting after each. I found that when I installed the latest version of the 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' driver, my computer failed to boot.

Am I supposed to be using a different version of the Rapid Storage Technology driver?

Dell Inspiron 14 :: No Boot Device Found?

Dec 20, 2014

I just got my Inspiron 14 for my birthday in March and Its died on me (I assume). It's still under warranty, but im not entirely sure how or where to send it to get it fixed. I still have the original box it came in as well and would love to get it fixed as soon as possible, but I would rather fix it myself if possible.Upon starting the laptop, a black screen appears with the message, "No Boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine".  I ran a diagnostic and it said that the hard drive wasn't installed and that the CPU fan went out. I removed the back of the laptop and checked the fan which seems to be running absolutely fine. I took the error code it produced and searched it on the website and it told me to download the latest BIOS but I can't because the laptop won't start up to where I can get on the internet.

HP/Compaq :: Boot Device Not Found- Hp Tx2500z

Oct 17, 2009

I have a hp tx2500z

When I turn on the power for computer there's a beeping noise coming from the hard drive I think and this message comes up in blue letters with a black background

" Boot Device Not Found

Please install an operating system on your hard disk.

Hard Drisk (XXX)

F2 System Diagnostics

When I run the system diagnostics for the Hard Disk Test, it says:
"Hard Disk Test Failed
Hard disk not exist"

What do I do? I went to the website but its suggesting that I basically may have to do a system recovery to the factory installed state...I have a lot of stuff I don't want to lose.

I also tried removing the hard drive and putting it back in, that didn't help either.

I called tech support and I still have my warrranty so I will be getting a Hp box to put my tablet in within a few days. But they told me I would most likely lose all the data I have saved.

Then I used a liveCD in hopes of backing up my harddrive but the liveCD won't even boot..unless im doing it wrong...( burn iso to CD, then load CD into laptop, and press f10? and/or turn on computer with CD inserted in and then let it load if it wants to?)

Dell Inspiron 15R :: No Boot Device Found - Press Any Key To Reboot Machine

Nov 30, 2014

I have a dell Inspiron 15r 3537 i7 model with windows 8. I bought it 4 months ago. I was playing a game on it and it suddenly hanged. I waited for 5-10 minutes and tried to close the game but it wasn't closing and it was hung. I waited for atleast 15 minutes and I had no choice so I switched it off from the power button thinking that it will turn on normally. But when I switched it on it showed the dell logo and then it said

Checking media
Checking media [fail]
Checking media [fail]

No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine.

When I rebooted the machine, the same error came.

HP OS/Software :: Boot Device Not Found On Pavilion 11-h013dx X2 Pc

Oct 28, 2014

  I have an HP Pavilion 11-h013dx x2 pc running windows 8 and this weekend all of a sudden my computer shut down. When I restarted it I was given a blue screen which gave me the option to restore and refresh. I tried both options but the computer shut down when it got to 15% of restoring. Then when I turned on the computer it gives me a black screen saying boot device not found. I hit F10, enter, F9, enter, then exited and saved, that did nothing. I ran the hard disk check which passed. I ran the memory check and that failed with the code RQDATS-6T079C-MFPWWK-002103. I can't remember what other screen I was on when I got a different error code, but this one came up as well at some point and I wrote it down RQDATS-6T079B-MFPWWK-001H03.

HP Pavilion Dv7 OS/Software :: Hard Disk Test Failed - Boot Device Not Found

Jun 15, 2013

I have a Pavilion dv7 1245dx with Windows Vista 64 Bit bought 2009 at Best Buy.  It slid off the arm of the couch onto a carpeted floor while shut down.  Next day started ok, got into yahoo, facebook, then kind of froze up.  Eventually, would not do anything, manually shut it down, started it back up. Black screen, 'No Bootable Device-Insert Boot Disc And Press Any Key'. It will not accept recovery discs that I made after purchase. Start up test ok, memory test ok, hard disk failed 'Boot Drive Not Found'. Caps lock light is blinking.  I saw something in a forum about resetting or reseating the hard drive but no explanantion how to do it.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: No Bootable Device Found

Apr 8, 2013

I experienced my first BSOD today on my 5 month old Inspiron. I was a little concerned but figured it'd be find and just restart. However my laptop never restarted, instead I was greeted by 'no bootable device found. Press any key to restart'

Now I've browsed the Internet and taken a few steps, firstly I ran the diagnostics in the bios and it was saying my hard drive wasn't installed. Then I followed a guide on this forum. I changed the Sata from ACHI to Intel Smart Technology, however now I'm unable to get back into the boot settings and instead my laptop just stalls on the Dell boot up screen.

All this has literally happened out of nowhere today, I run my own business and I rely heavily on my laptop. I can't afford to lose any documents. I'm baffled how it can just malfunction out of nowhere.

I am trying to resolve a driver issue. I have an E6500 and after installing XP, patches, drivers and the like, I am left with one hardware device not found. It is listed within the Device Manager as "5880" and after some investigation it appears to be the Broadcom USH CV for a fingerprint reader. I do not have a fingerprint reader installed. I have extracted the drivers from another system and pointed the hardware wizard there but to no good effect.
