Dell Inspiron N5030 :: Boot Manager Failed To Find OS Loader
Jan 26, 2013
my dell inspiron laptop model n5030 will not start. when you turn it on the startup repair window comes up. after the diagnostic runs it says windows cannot repair this automatically. my warranty expired this past august and now my laptop died. how do i restore my laptop when the system restore partition does not work? it just says. boot manager failed to find os loader error code 0x3. and it also says boot configuration data store repair failed. error code = 0x2. then the laptop shuts off. what should i do? i have only had the laptop a year and a half. do i need a new one?
I have a dell inspiron 15 7000 series but can not find the webcam in the BIOS neither in the device manager.there is still a webcam (is it a fake) on top of the screen.Also I wasn't able to find any useful driver. Can you confirm if there is a webcam ?
I am hoping to buy an HP Envy 15 j102saI want to fit an mSATA SSD as well as the hard drive1. Does this model have a free mSATA bay?2. Is it possible to boot off the SSD and will it require a boot loader from the HDD?
I have a y410p with windows 8 on it. I recently installed a debian based linux alongside windows so I can dual boot them.This required me to also add Grub to the the disk. But grub was in legacy mode and i had problems booting up win8. So, I used boot-repair to try to fix it, but it seems to have gotten worse.
I am trying to connect bluetooth earphones to my HP-Pavilion-dv7-6b32us Notebook. I have two different models that I am trying to connect to my notebook: Nextware Sonic and Jarv earphones, both via bluetooth. I've tried "Add a Device" through the control panel, but the devices don't pair or show up. I can't find Bluetooth in the device manager. Are there any drivers I can download or software on the computer I can activate to solve this, or do I need to buy a bluetooth dongle?
I have a N5030 it was giving me the beeping 7 times, so I replaced the motherboard and the cpu. I got it to startup and work but than the touchpad wouldn't work so I did a system check including the bios and my battery ran out and so that process stopped. When I plugged in the ac and hit the start button, I got a black screen. I unplugged everything inside and out and now it turns on and shuts off quickly.
I have an Inspiron N5030 laptop. It won't power up and emits a steady beeping when turned on. I let it beep up to 15 times before i turned it back off. the screen stays black and although 2 lights on the front of it come on when i first turn the power on, the second light goes back off and just the first light stays on during the beeping. i have tried pulling the battery, tried powering it with the battery in and the battery out. When i looked up the beep codes, a steady beep was not one of the codes.
My Ideapoad P500 is approximately 16 months old (so the warranty period is out, obviously!) A couple of nights after a reboot I got the message "Repairing Hard Disk errors. This could take an hour or longer."... or something very similar. The laptop hung up at that message for more than 18 hours.
I did a hard reboot and now get the message "Checking media" followed by the error "Boot failed." This leads to the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed."No I don't have any recovery media.Yes I have pretty recent backups so that is not a problem.I've got an enclosure that I can use to hook my laptop hard drive up to so I can see if the drive is even readable.
Now here is the 64 thousand dollar question... how do I get the hard drive out of the laptop? I have taken the five screws out of the back. At that point, I think the DVD drive should slide out, but it does not.how to get the hard drive out?
I have a y500 Lenovo gaming laptop with Windows 8, and for the past couple of days, each time my laptop is put in hibernation or powered down, whenever I turn it back on it gives me this message:
"Default Boot Device Missing or boot failed Insert recovery media and hit any key Then select boot manager to choose a new boot device to boot or recovery media."
Then it brings me to a page with 3 boot options, and only the Windows Boot Manager works. I'm doing scans and hardware scans but so far nothing is being found. This laptop is less than 2 months old so I really don't think it's a hardware problem, and I haven't downloaded anything recently that may have messed this up. I would contact Lenovo but I'm unsure if this is an issue with the laptop, or Windows 8.
I have a Acer E1 522-3657 computer, which my son set-up for me but did not make the recovery disc(s). The unit is just outside of the warranty period when the hard drive failed. The hard drive just makes a clicking noise and after the logo screen appears it goes to a blue screen with a box that has the following message with in, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media and Hit any key.....Then Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.
I have installed a brand-new Western Digital 1T Sata3 harddrive to replace the Toshia 750 GB original Drive. After turning the computer on and at the logo screen I press and hold F2, this takes me to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility Screen. I see under the "Information" menu that the installed harddrive model and serial number appear. I see in the "Boot" menu, Boot Mode: "UEFI" and Secure Boot: "Enabled".
Under the "Exit" menu, Exit Saving Changes is highlighted. When I press F10 a "setup Configuration" box appears asking to save configuration changes and exit now? "Yes" is highlighted to which I hit Enter and are returned to the "Default Boot Device.......page. I then hit ecs twice and are at a black screen with the message No bootable device -- Please Restart system_appearing in the upper left corner of the screen. I then push and hold the power button until the computer shuts off.
I have ordered from acer the "Acer E-recovery Media Disc Set", which is specific to the SNID of my computer. I have not attempted to format the new hard drive in any way. I assume the E-recovery Media Disc Set will handle that operation due to the multiple partitions required.
In view of the above situation, do I need to set up the computer in any way before I start to utilize the E-recovery Media Disc set. I assume the Media will be on CD's. The computer was running Win 8.0 which was updated to Win 8.1 and was running very well, very stable.
Acer V5, spilled coffee on keyboard. no problem at first, then lockup, and on restart get the No Boot Device or Boot Failed. Am using my old laptop now. Can I get a download, save it to thumb drive, and use it to restart/reboot my Acer?
Have a Dell laptop-Inspiron N5030. Running Win7 home prem. Having battery cannot be determined or charged issues.
Sometimes on boot up I receive the message "battery cannot be determined" and it says press F1 to continue, F2 for setup, or F5 for diagnostics.
I've gone into setup to check the battery information. States battery life is at 0%, battery health says its not a Dell battery. But the battery came with the Dell laptop and is original.
Sometime it makes through the boot process and when Windows boots to the desktop I get the error message "The model number for primary battery cannot be determined. This will prevent any battery present from recharging. Please insert a Dell laptop battery......
I've tried to update the bios, but it won't let me. It states that the battery and AC adapter must be connected, or something similar to that. I also have a Dell Latitude laptop and tried swapping out my AC adapter and got the same error messages.
I get the error in the Title after i tried to flash the latest BIOS update for the Z510. I can press ok and then get into the boot manager but i cant choose anything there. Also I cant boot from a Disk with e.g. XP on it.
I also tried the Inside BIOS crisis mode (fn+r) with the BIOS file on my USB drive but it doesn't work and tries to access the file on the USB drive but boots normally instead to the error again. (Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).
I have a Inspiron N5030 - the screen has playing up for a while (working intermittently) but now has comletely gone. Intially I had vertical lines down the screen - now there is nothing and computer gives 8 continues loud bleeps on start-up - there will be a slight pause then again 8 beeps. This is continuous until the laptop is shut down. I am happy to change the screen but before investing in a new one, whether this would be the correct way to go?
I turn on my laptop and there is no picture, the power light comes on, but no picture, it is black screen and then it is beeping continuously. This is all it will do. The battery started not keeping a charge for very long lately, but I am not sure this is what is causing the black screen and beeping. I have tried to remove it for a while and put it back in to no avail.
I've had my Inspiron N5030 for about 10 months now. I've been using the same wireless router for about 8 months with no problem up until a week or so ago. I started to intermittently have the limited connectivity issue. It would come and go. So I tried to unplug the wireless router and modem. After that it seemed to work okay but the next day I turned on my computer and it wasn't connected at all. It shows my network but when I try to connect it says that windows cannot connect to my network. I'm the person that set up the network so I have the correct key and code and it's worked fine for months so I'm not sure what's causing the issue. I've also tried resetting the router but that doesn't seem to work either. I have a ipod touch that's able to connect to the wireless fine though so whatever the issue is it seems to be with the laptop.
After working perfectly fine for a couple of hours the other day my laptop suddenly shut down. Since then it hasn't worked for longer than 15-20 minutes without shutting down suddenly. I dont think its overheating as it never feels very hot. Ive tried unplugging it, taking out the battery and holding down the power button for thirty seconds but that achieved nothing. I went in f12 upon bootup and tried running a diagnostics test but the laptop shut down again halfway through.
I am upgrading my 4 GB (2 x 2GB) ram at present to 6 GB replacing one of the 2 GB one by Kingston made for dell 4 GB memory. I tried all possible combination but it keeps on giving the 4 beep error code on startup and the screen is completely black.
I also got the ram replaced for it might be faulty but no luck.
i have hp pavilion g6 notebook pc laptop...but it does not contain recovery disk and whenever i create recovery disk from recoverry manager it failed to verify disk 1 and show the message "insert another disk " it happen again and again ...what to do....
After hard disk failure on my dell inspiron n5030 i copied two first partitions from my old hard drive to a new one using Acronis disk director. But when i try to use ctrl+f11 to start the recovery procedure the procedure doesn't work.
I also tried decompressing the factory iso file to Os partition and when i tried to start the pc and boot with Os partition as active it didn't work.
I swear it is always something with this product. I made a bootable USB flash drive and put Windows 7 on it. I have 2 M1330's, the only difference between them is CPU/RAM/HDD. One of them boots just fine off the USB drive, the other doesn't. They are both running the A15 BIOS. What am I missing here? I've compared the BIOS settings side by side and they are identical.
I have a HP Pavilion dv6-1107X Entertainment Series notebook. When I turn it on I get an inconsisent series of very loud short beeps nearly always in 3 groups. First group can be 4 to 6 beeps. Second group can be 1 or 2. Third group just goes on and on until the Windows Boot Manager pops up. Once I select the Vista operating system everything appears to start working as normal.
Here is what I have done: 1. Replaced motherboard and CPU 2. Checked and tested hard drive by diagnostic and in another machine - okay 3. Have used a known good hard drive in this machine - same symptoms, no change. 4. Checked and tested RAM stick in both slots, by diagnostic test and on another machine - okay 5. Did a Factory Default recovery - Operating System (OS) behaved erratically. 6. Did a Clean Install using another machine - OS works but same symptoms as above with beeps and Windows Boot Manager. 7. Installed all required drivers as required in Device Manager (after a LOT of problems trying to find the HP driver download support - I had to search for HP Compaq Pavilion dv6-1107AX to find a site that linked to the driver downloads). 8. Have run AVG anti virus, and 3 x anti spyware (Malwarebytes, Spybot and SuperAntiSpyware). Nil bugs founds. 9. Reset BIOS to defaults.
Am also having problems from time to time access BIOS. It takes several attempts but can be gained by pressing F10 immediately after the first screen with ESC option on it. Also have problems access Safe Mode using F8 but perseverance is required and it will work eventually.
