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 bought a new Dell Inspiron 5547 from US.From past ten days its sayings No Bootable device found error while starting.I've checked BIOS setting HDD is not detected.But after few hours I'm able to open it.After few minutes the disk space reaches to maximum due to svchost.exe process.
I replaced my WD 250GB RPM 5400 with a WD 500GB RPM 7200 and I get a "No boot sector on internal hard drive" "No bootable devices" I have both original disks ( Operating System Windows 7 and Applications.) I've checked the BIOS and it shows the new HDD. I put the Operating System CD in and started the computer than I hit F12 went to CD/DVD and hit enter I received the message "No boot sector on Internal hard drive" "No bootable devices"
My hard drive turned bad few days back and i now purchased a new WD3200BPVT 320 GB internal hard drive for my system. I installed it myself after reading all instructions and guidelines. But when i start it, system says, hard drive not found, try to reseat it. I have also reset it, but again same error coming. I dont know whats gone wrong with the hard drive or system..?
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.
I have a Dell 1545 Inspiron Computer with Vista Ultimate OS. Yesterday for the 2nd time, my mouse and printer won't work because I get the error message USB Device not recognized.
About 3 weeks ago I had the same problem and it self-corrected itself when the latest Windows Update apparently fixed it.
I know there is nothing truly wrong with the USB devices but am not sure what to do. If there is a particular driver for this as my backup DVD for this computer has lots of them listed. I am currently running a System Check but am not sure if that is going to work.
I have been using the same wireless mouse on this computer for three years. Suddenly it stopped working after a Windows update last night. Getting the following:USB Device Not Recongnized.
One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. I have uninstalled USB drivers and let windows reinstall them, no change. I did a restore back two days, then windows wouldn't start. Occasionally stops in Dell start up screen and gives 4 beeps. Undid restore, back to same problem stated above.
My previous Dell Latitude D630 went out of order (nvidia graphics) so I bought another d630 second hand without hard disk and introduced the "old" hard disk.
Everything works fine (installing drivers...) except the DVD/CD is not recognized at all:
- when in the BIOS, putting the boot sequence to: CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive
the Laptop says: No bootable devices... (It also says that, when I unplug the DVD/CD)
The DVD/CD itself does a short spinning movement when booting, so it seems to have "electricty".
I've upgraded the BIOS to A18 already;
When booting Windows, the drive is missing altogether (the hardware manager does not show it as an unregonized driver; instead the drive is missing altogether)
I understand the DVD, though introduced to the Laptop, is connected via USB - do I need some USB driver update or how can I fix this?
Is there a manual that would tell me how to check cabling or similar things? when I introduce the DVD from the old hardware - which was/is working, it is also not found in the "new" laptop, so I suppose the DVD hardware "connection" is missing??
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.
My Inspiron laptop is not able to boot. I am getting the message:
"No Boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine_"
I took the laptop to a local service center and they said that I need a new motherboard. They said they swapped the hard drive with a working one and got the same error message. By that their diagnosis is that the motherboard is damaged.
Since yesterday my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop is unable to detect any USB device connected to it. I tried connecting the device to all available ports of laptop but none of them is working. I tried to update the drivers but in troubleshoot window its showing "No plugin found ..drivers are not loaded" and for any USB device connected to it, its showing "Unknown USB device".When I went into its detail its showing that "digital signature is not present". I tried all the ways like install, uninstall, reboot. But its not even able to install/update the drivers. All my USB devices were getting detected and were working fine till 5th Nov.11 before this problem started on 6th Nov.11 and I changed nothing in laptop also no damage been caused to it.

Just installed a new har drive into my Compaq CQ57. Ordered the recovery disks from HP. Put the first disk in disk drive as instructed and turned power back on. Now I'm getting a "No bootable device - insert boot disk" message. I thought that was what I had gotten from HP? how to recover system and then reinstall Windows 7?

I have an Aspire 5733Z laptop which occasionally gives me the above message. When it does, I leave it alone for 3 or 4 days and when I turn it back on, it works again. I have already gone once to a technician, but when I got there, my laptop was working fine. I have noticed that if I demand to work with Mozilla Firefox or some complex video sites, it crashes How do I go about getting a boot disk?
I have a HP touchsmart envy 15 and I am trying to restore computer to factory default. About 6 months ago, the computer said I could make a boot disc and be able to use that to restore my computer to factory and after I make the boot disc, I can delete the recovery partition as it will be stored on the disc. So I went ahead and make the disc (it turned out to be 4 discs) and the computer deleted the partition. Now I am here trying to use the discs to restore to factory, however, my optical drive isn't detected when the bios is booting. Because of this I need to turn those 4 discs into a bootable USB thumb drive. I have looked all over and there are many different ways of converting 1 disc into usb, but not 4.
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.
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?)
So, after a clean install of windows 7 i go to install the bluetooth software from broadcom's site the install utility reports that it cannot find a bluetooth device, and that i should enable the device/turn the device on problem is no bluetooth devices are listed in the device manager and there's no button on the laptop to enable/disable the bluetooth controller. I do not want to install the hp wireless assistant.
the Hard drive on my HP ENVY dv4 crashed and I have replaced it with a Samsung SSD 840 PRO. I dont have a back-up and have had to purchase a new version of Windows 8.I am trying to install this operating system, but when I turn on the computer it tells me that there is no boot device is found.How to I get the computer to read the new windows 8 disk that I have purchased so that I can install the operating system?
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.
i bought a acer laptop @ bestbuy and it came with preinstall vista home. i used the computer fine and all and the internet connects to my router find and was surfing the internet. i then decided to install a fresh copy of my own vista ultimate because i dont like the preinstall stuff that they did because it just clutters up space. after i finish my install of vista ultimate, my laptop doesn't connect to the internet. i know this is simply but i dont see network adapters under the device manager in the computer management screen. i am worried because if i have to install the driver, then i would see some icons with a yellow exclamation mark, but i dont see NETWORK ADAPTERS AT ALL. i dont know how to solve this? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks all. i've tried to press scan for new hardware changes but still i dont see the network adpaters. i thought if you install vista ultimate, then it will install the wireless drivers for you too.
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.
I just reinstalled windows 7 on my edge 13 (cause the system really slowed down), everything's working so far, expect the WLan Device. The network adapter (realtek RTL8168D/Familie-PCI-E-Gigabit-Ethernet-NIC) is properly detected, if i plug in a Lan cable I have got a connection.
I already tried this Lenovo Update tool, it installed some drivers and updates, but still no change. I already tried all Wifi drivers from lenovo homepage without success. Hitting the F9 Button didn't change a thing.
