Dell Inspiron 1525 :: SD Port Doesn't Work

Jul 2, 2008

I have a brand new Inspiron 1525 and am trying to get my photos from a 1 gig sd card into a file on my laptop.  I've removed the "fake" sd card that came with the computer and put in the picture card.  It opened once (meaning it showed up as as an sd card in the "my computer" area, but I moved on to something else at home and eventually "safely removed" the card without finishing my task.  A few days later I tried again but the computer doesn't even recognize the card... the "my computer" area does not list the card as being in its slot.
What is more curious is that if I remove the card and put it into my trusty multi-slot card reader and insert that into one of the usb ports it opens up the iphotos on the sd card just fine and I can upload from there.  I know I can just use the card reader, but I really like of being able to just put the sd card directly into the laptop.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Won't Boot

Jan 10, 2010

My cousin has an Inspiron 1525 laptop which has had an issue of booting. Randomly one day she received the following message, "Internal hard drive not found. Reseat hard drive". It also said from below "Boot to CD by pressing any key" that the "BOOTMGR is not found".

I received the laptop in this state. I booted from the CD (Windows install disc) and was able to reinstall Vista. I then updated all the drivers and had everything working like a charm. I thought I had hit jackpot with an easy reformat. After about 4 hours of having it running perfectly, as I was installing Windows updates, I received the "Internal hard drive not found. Reseat hard drive" message. Now I cannot boot into Windows and booting from the CD no longer works.

Here are some of the specs:

T2390 Dual Core 1.86Ghz

Is the hard drive dying? Is it the SATA controller? The motherboard? Anyone have any ideas or past experiences?

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Will Not Boot Up

Dec 26, 2009

I have ran the PSA (?) and received an error code of 2000-0142. Does anyone know if this is something I can repair? I would be very grateful for any help.

She really needs this computer for school and funds are super tight around here (with the economy the way it is)

I also ran the "express test" and received this information:

Error Code - 0F00:065D

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Won't Boot Up

Nov 3, 2009

I'm having a serious problem with my laptop right now and I'm fearing the worst: a bad motherboard, a problem which I have found to be pretty common with 1525 users through Google/forum searches.

Hopefully someone out there can relate and has a remedy that will save me money/time/hassles with my laptop, which by the way has been out of warranty for about 6 months.

I purchased the 1525 last April (2008) direct from Dell. Here are the vital specs: Inspiron 1525, Intel Core 2 Duo T5550, 1.83GHz, 667Mhz, 2ML2 Cache. I've never really had any problem with it until yesterday morning. I woke up and pressed the power button after allowing the system to hibernate the night before. The power LED lights up in the bottom left and the touch-sensitive media buttons flash from side-to-side like normal

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Wont Boot

Sep 7, 2009

The laptop was working fine all day but then all of a sudden when I had to reboot it, the only that would come up is the dell media direct and that wont load because its telling me it cant find the drive.

I tried to put in a XP disk that I have and it wont boot to that either even with the correct boot order in the BIOS. I tried to do a restore and that still didnt work, when I go into F8 it gives me the choices but its telling me that its Windows XP embedded when its windows vista.

Is there a way I can get this to work, I dont care about reformatting it because I hate Vista anyways, but I dont want to spend the money on a brand new drive.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Will Not Boot Up Running Vista OS

Nov 26, 2012

My computer is out of warranty.  On Thursday, my Dell Inspiron 1525 (bought in 2008) running Vista Operating System was working perfectly.  No issues at all.  On Friday morning, I went to turn on the computer and the 2 blue lights on the bottom left (the power and the one beside it) light up, the computer sounds like it is going to boot and then it beeps once and dies.  It will continue to do this over and over every few seconds until I turn off the power manually.

I have tried the trick of taking out the battery and the cord, pressing the power button and then plugging the battery and cord back in, but it still did not work.  The computer will not boot using just the cord (and not the battery) and vice versa.

Dell Inspiron 17R SE 7720 :: Doesn't Boot - Incomplete Installation Of Win 8 Updates

Feb 22, 2013

I bought a recent Inspiron 7720 laptop, with Win8 pre-installed. It seemed to be installing some updates, when it shut down(with them having installed only 35%). When I attempt to power on, it passed the Dell logo screen, then sticks FOREVER (doesnt load the w8OS apparently). I tried the battery out-in trick - doesn't work.

If I press F2, it guides me to BIOS (Phoenix A10) Disabling secure boot and starting Legacy mode has NO IMPACT WHATSOEVER, exactly the smae startup issues but without the "F12 Boot Option)

If I press F12 during logo screen, it takes me to "F12 Boot Options", which is a black screen with an empty progress bar in the middle(apparently this should have the option to run a PSA diagnostic but it DOESNT SHOW ANYTHING!)....

1. ubuntu
2. PCI LAN: Atheros Boot Agent
3. ATA HDD: ST500LT012-9WS142

I have pressed enter in both Ubuntu and ATA HDD options. But after a brief duration the control comes back to the same menu I have specified before. How to boot to ubuntu.

Acer Aspire 5810TZ :: Flashing BIOS - Boot It Up And It Just Showing Logo

Mar 13, 2013

Flashing the bios. I have a Aspire 5810TZ. I boot it up and it just says 'acer' and won't go any further. I went to the download page for BIOS on and it has a zip file with 5 files:

JM4151135.exe FLA... GPC_V135.bin readme.txt FLASH.BAT

What do I do? I have tried copying the files to a USB and powering on with Fn-Esc held down. After letting go of the power button and holding Fn-Esc a different screen appears after 30 seconds. I let go and have given it 30 minutes but it is not doing anything. I have read online from other people the power button should be blinking. Do I need to rename one of the files.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 - New Crucial M4 MSATA SSD Not Showing In BIOS Boot Order

Jun 22, 2013

I cannot select my new SSD (M4 mSATA) in the boot order in the BIOS.
The mSATA drive DOES show up on the BIOS info page (first BIOS screen) but does NOT appear on the boot order page. The drive is visible and formatted in Windows 8 64bit and I can copy files to it,
Computer: Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 with a 1TB HDD (i7 CPU, 660M COU, 8GB RAM, etc.)OS: Windows 8 64bitSSD: Crucial M4 mSATA 256GB Model # M4-CT256M4SSD3Windows shows the drive as operating correctly. After some fiddling I did use disk management to populate the volume (238GB available) and assigned a drive letter. I successfully copied a txt file and can open the file.

I have created a recovery DVD but it doesn't recognize the drive when attempting to use--although I can see/use in Windows.

I have also removed the HDD and rebooted a number of times. So the drive is working but I cannot set it as a bootable drive. The things I have tried:

>>>Have you tried the ssd as the only drive>>> Yes.
>>> are both drives on the same sata contoller have you tried the ssd in the hdd port?>>> he SSD is mSATA and has a different port than the HDD (which plugs into the SATA port). I have tried w/o the HDD plugged in,

>>>could it be that the hdd has ahci and the ssd doesnt or vice versa>>> I have not tried disabling AHCI yet as a quick browsing showed this bricking some systems.

>>> See the Bootmenu of the BIOS setup utility. Make sure that the Boot Device Priority in the BIOS setup utility is set so that the computer starts from the device you want. >>> Doesn't list it as an option on the priority screen, BUT it is listed on the BIOS information page as recognized (HD0 I believe).

>>> Press F12 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the  computer is starting up to select the device you want the computer starts from.>>> Does not list the SSD drive as a boot option. Tried w/ and w/o the HDD installed.

Dell :: HDMI + HDTV Issues. Studio XPS 13. No Picture, Flicking Colors. Timing Issues?

Jul 13, 2009

My new Studio XPS 13 with integrated NVIDIA 9400M graphics came in. I tried to hook up the HDMI port to my HDTV, a Sony KDF-E50A10:

On my screen, all that displays is some random flickering colors. Ive tried changing the resolutions and various settings in the NVIDIA control panel, but still no luck.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try? I figure HDMI should be pretty much plug and play. The TV is 720p and Ive tried resolutions from 1280x720 to 800x600. I dont really have any experience with HDMI to be honest.

There are some custom settings in the NVIDIA control panel, but I am not too familiar with these settings:

Dell Latitude E6510 :: Doesn't Boot / What Is Option ROM

Jan 25, 2015

I was given a nice E6510 that doesn't boot. I've taken it apart and tested the memory, all the connections, reseated the processor (yes I used arctic silver) and it never gets past the 'one time boot menu', the diagnostic boot freezes but I CAN get to the very complex BIOS version A16.

So, I bought a new MOBO thinking that would solve the boot issue but it hasn't-it's doing exactly the same thing. may indicate the problem-Dell calls this an "OPTION ROM", may be 'unseated' or the system board is bad.

What is "Option ROM" and how can it be reseated? Are there any other things I can do in BIOS to change this? I also replaced the SATA CDROM and the hard drive, and I know the USB port works okay but nothing will boot from them.

HP/Compaq :: DV5 Doesn't Boot

Mar 8, 2010

I have a HP Pavilion DV5-1235dx(model) that I bought 1 year ago.

And 1 week ago its got out of order! Broked! Don't BOOT! I don't know why, but I tryed a lot of ways to do it! But doesn't work!

I have a medium knowlege of computers, but other people said me that can be the Motherboard! Really? I think that maybe the problem is other...

I'll explain what I did to try fix it. I'd took out the HD, and tryed turn it on in SATA/USB adapter. But my Desktop doesn't Recognized the Removable Disk! (The adapter is working I tested with other HD) I'd tryed boot without HD. I'd tryed to put other HD with Ubuntu that I have working.I'd tryed boot with WinCD (XP/VISTA/7). Didn't work either.My BIOS lists the CD-ROM Drive but didn't anyone of HDs that I installed then.

The START is ever the same. Doesn't matter what I do, the "HP Start BOOT Screen" load, enter in a black screen and doesn't load the OS.

Apple :: MBP Doesn't Boot

May 28, 2010

I erased the free space on my hard drive because it OS X claimed it was full even though it wasn't. I was forced to quit at the end while it was stalled at "Creating temporary file" for 3 hours. I restarted the computer and this was the result:

YouTube - MBP boot attempt

It boots to the login screen, gives me a warning that the hard drive is full, allows me to log in, but then doesn't load any icons, the dock, or the menu bar. Key commands like cmd-shift-Q still work to log out and didn't switch from the login image (that graffiti thing) to my desktop background, which is a jungle cat of some sort, but the mouse cursor still works, as you can see in the video.
