Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Error Message On Boot - Checking Media Fail

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)". The message appears twice then the system boots normally. All the programs/apps work fine. The only "media" program I used was Windows Movie Maker and it works just fine.

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.

Dell :: Disable Media Direct Boot

Apr 22, 2010

I have M1330 that is trying to boot to media direct then promptly BSOD's. I believe the scenario that happened was the notebook was hibernated, then they pressed the media direct button instead of power to wake it up.

How do I tell not to boot to media direct?

I saw this exact same message in another thread but no resolve.

Apple :: Windows 7 Upgrade Media And Boot Camp Install

Dec 26, 2009

I understand the upgrade version requires a previous version of Windows installed. But given the way Boot Camp works, I don't think its possible to have Windows installed if I want to install Windows 7 (or any new copy of Windows) to my Macbook.

I also know that there is a registry workaround should I encounter problems w/ the Win7 Setup program not accepting my key.

Anyway, my main question is will this upgrade media work for me if I decide to install it via Boot Camp?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410 Windows 7 Recovery Media 64bit Will Not Boot

Jan 7, 2014

I have been sent 4 sets of Windows 7 Recovery Media from Lenovo over the past week and a half. These DVDs are unusable as they will not boot because they were created as non-bootable DVDs. When looking at the DVDs, they all just have 1 file on them - 0A44006.dvd.  I was sent a set of the 32bit version and it has multiple files on it with Bootmgr and 6 directories and will boot just fine. The 64bit DVDs obviously were created and replicated without any of these files to make it a bootable DVD.

Dell :: Cleaning Inspiron 1720 Media Direct Buttons

Apr 7, 2009

With my recent acquisition of a Studio XPS 16, I am selling my Inspiron 1720 to a friend of mine (yep he's getting a good deal and I am throwing in 200 or 300 bucks worth of stuff to boot because he's a good guy),

but I've noticed that my play and volume up media direct buttons tend to stick as if they've got some buildup behind them.

I hardly ever eat when using my laptop and I've never spilled anything on it so I'm guessing it's just normal buildup gunk but I'd rather take it apart and clean it to give it to him as clean as possible, if it's a relatively easy task.

Dell :: Inspiron 6000 Media Buttons Not Working After Reinstallation

Mar 17, 2009

I can't find the driver for the media buttons on the front of the Inspiron 6000 notebook. I know the buttons work, but I need the software / driver for them.

Also can't find it on the drivers page (well at least, none of the descriptions match; I may be wrong).

Lenovo Z585 P/Y/Z Series :: Boot Fail / One Key Recovery Fail

Sep 25, 2014

Ideapad Z585 AMD A8-4500 1.9Ghz
AMD Radeon HD7640

My 11 month old Ideapad failed to boot last night with error 'BL Initialize Library Error 0xc0000029'. Eventually a blue screen appeared saying that multiple start attempts had failed and the system needed repair.
As suggested I tried to use One key recovery but choosing restore to factory settings leads to self same failure.Sadly I have misplaced the recovery disc I created during a house revamp so cannot try that route.

Dell :: About SSD In E6400 Media Bay

Nov 2, 2009

for the E6400 media bay (I hope that's what it's called, I'm referring to the location where the optical disk is). I'd like to add a SSD before my trip to overseas and I have a few questions about this:

1) what kind of SSD should I get? I'd like to get a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Is it any 128/256GB SSD or do I need to get a specific kind?

2) If I want the SSD to be the primary drive and a 500GB HD to be the data drive, do I need to put the SSD in where the HD is and then put the 500GB HD in the optical disk caddy tray? (I bought the newmodeus caddy tray)

Dell :: Media Direct 2.0 Please?

Nov 9, 2009

I'm trying to get hold of Media Direct for the Dell 6000. I've searched quite a few boards and come across links to where it was supposed to be, but they've been old links.

I've also been able to download 80% of the ISO on a torrent I've found, but its now stopped as the guys who had 100% have gone off line.

I was hoping someone here has still got a copy of the ISO so I can reinstall it onto the laptop I've just replaced the hard drive with.

Dell :: External Media Bay

Dell :: Media Direct 3.0

Oct 22, 2007

I just got an i9300, that I'm having fun setting up. I've already done a couple hardware upgrades (OUT; 1GB PC4200, IN; 2GB PC5300. OUT; 60GB/5400, IN; 160GB/5400). See "sig" for rest of specs.

I've got a copy of Windows MCE 05. I'd like to set this up with Dell Media Direct 3.0. I've done a ton of searching the forums here, and a few other sites. I've printed out several hard copies of "How To Install MD3" threads for reference., here's the crux. I need a copy of MD3. I "acquired" (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more) a copy, and burned the ISO to DVD. When I first used it, it set up the partitions, and then gave a wierd error about "not being able to find the Media Direct PLAY button...". Setup halted in it's tracks. I ran it a couple times, same error. After the 2nd try, I exited out and installed MCE05.

My hard drive had the 47MB (EISA Configuration) partition on the front, my C: drive, followed by a 2.01GB "Unknown Partition". Looks right, but, both the 47MB and 2.01GB partitions are empty. 100% empty.

So, I install MCE05, all the drivers, Nero 7 and Cyberlink PowerDVD 6. Defrag. I then put the MD3 disk in, and let it do it's thing. The Installation Notice comes up, and then it halts IMMEDIATELY thereafter, giving an error of "This system is not supported by this Reinstallation DVD. Installation will now exit."

Are there different versions of MD for different machines/OS'es/etc?? What version do I need for my system/OS??

What are the chances that I can sweet talk Dell into sending me a copy, where this system is out of warranty and I'm the 2nd owner?

If the chances of that (above) are "none", does anyone have a copy of the "correct" version I can "borrow" so I can get this set up?

Dell :: Disable Media Centre

Apr 22, 2009

I have a new Dell Studio 1737, with Vista Home Premium which I'm happy with ... apart from this Dell Media Direct thingy which is driving me berserk! Intermittently, and for no apparent reason, it jumps up a big black box (Dell MediaDirect), then another box (MediaDirect Home) which seems to be for running films etc.

OK I may use it sometime in the future, but hopefully when I request it ...

I can't find it in the Startup files, nor in Task Manager.

So how can I turn it off?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Media Buttons?

Aug 21, 2009

I can still change the volume, but that little graphic that pops up when you turn it up/down is no longer there, making it hard for me to see what the volume is.

Second, and more importantly, the "eject" button no longer works. I have to manually goto the disk drive, right click, and click eject............

Dell :: Latitude E4300 Media Bay

I have been unable to find anything to replace the disk drive with. After OS and basic application installation, I never use CDs or DVDs.

I would much prefer a battery or hard drive. Even a plastic weight-saver would be better than the disk drive
