I have an Inspiron 7010 which is 2 years old. In control panel devices it tells me to troubleshoot the laptop and cannot rectify problem with Broadcom virtual wireless adaptor. Secondly running the diagnostics say the Read test is not running. These are the only problems but are not affecting the efficiency of the PC. Should I ignore it?
I replaced the hard drive in my Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop. I need to get the programs and data files transferred to the new drive. I have a Repair Win 7 - 64-bit CD, made from the old hard drive -- do I use that to boot up the computer? Or do I use the old hard drive image that I have stored on an external hard drive?
I can't turn off my laptop. Widnows shuts down, the hard drive LED doesn't blink, just the power LED and I can hear the fan from time to time and it just hangs there. So, all I can do is hold the power button and force it to shut down. Even more weird is the fact that I can restart the computer. This started about a month ago and I've tried everything I could think of... to no avail.Here's my system info:
Computer Type ACPI x64-based PC (Mobile) Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate OS Service Pack Service Pack 1
CPU Type Mobile DualCore Intel Core i3-2330M, 2200 MHz (22 x 100) Motherboard Name Dell Inspiron N5110
Motherboard Chipset Intel Cougar Point HM67, Intel Sandy Bridge System Memory 8098 MB (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM)
Video Adapter Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 (2108 MB) Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M (1048384 KB)
Here's what I did:
1) I suspected a Windows update, so I tried to restore to a previous point. 2) Didn't want to reinstall Windows, so I tried to boot from the Windows CD and shut it down from there. 3) I tried to let it hang after the shutdown. This brought up a BSOD two times. It was DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. 4) Then I started suspecting the BIOS. Updated to A13 (the latest version for my model) 5) Resetting the BIOS to default settings. 6) Updated all drivers to the latest. 7) Restored the MBR. (Windows repair said that it couldn't find my Windows installation, even though I was able to boot) 8) Tried to shut down without the battery. 9) Tried to shut down without the power adapter. 10) Ran all Dell support center tests. The short ones, though. No problems were found.
My laptop is still under warranty, so I won't open it, but I'd like to know that I have tried everything before I contact the support center.My job is on my laptop. I don't have a PC, so if I take it to support, I won't be able to work.
I have a Dell Inspiron N5110. The Warranty ran out in July of last year so for some reason I cannot email technical support directly.I ran the Dell PC Diagnostic test earlier today, all of which passed with the exception of the SMART Short Self Test which failed. Apparently my hard drive is "operating outside of normal parameters and should be replaced". I tried this twice, once with the Dell diagnostic software installed on my laptop and once using the downloadable diagnostics from the Dell website, both had the same outcome.
I then tried the system diagnostics accessed via the F12 key on system startup. Again all passed but the hard drive test which would not run and provided the following message:
Error code 2000-0142 validation 12985 Msg Hard Drive 0 s/n (omitted), self test unsuccessful status = 7
I have read around on the support forums that the next step to try is removing and replacing the hard drive then re-running the diagnostics. If this does not solve the issue and I have to replace the hard drive does that mean I will need to buy a new copy of windows to install on the hard drive, as my laptop came with no disks? I have backed up all my important files but obviously not any programs.
what my next steps would be and what the process is should I have to replace my hard drive? I am a "noob" in this area and don't want to spending uneccassary money on parts that don't need to be replaced or buying software I don't need to replace as it is already available if you see what I mean?
1) KM632 - My new Dell Inspiron 20 3043 with Dell USB wireless keyboard and mouse Bundle KM632 - The keyboard does not recover from the sleep button on the keyboard by pressing a key. The PC has to be turned back on by the power button.
2) Diagnosis not working - In the Product Support page the Diagnosis does not work - it has an error message, “PC-Doctor Powered Application is currently running. This is not used when gathering system information or diagnostic test results through the Diagnosis Control.”
Ok I have a Dell 3521 Laptop and the hard drive went bad. So I have replaced the hard drive and did diagnostics on it and everything went fine. So I put in my burned copy of the back up and it started running. It got half way through then gave me a hard drive error. So now I am stuck what is going on with this. I just want to get my laptop back up and running.
On the start-up diagonstic the error code 2000-0146 came up. The computer is booting fine, though sometimes does not shuts down properly. Should I look into getting a new hard drive right now. Is it going bad?
My dell laptop will load the dell screen but then go black. It had windows 7 on it. So I went under and selected diagnostic test under adipto? In which I am use to seeing a Bios screen labled Bios. The diagnostic ran but and passed everything except my hard drive. It recognizes and list on the Blue screen HDD Fixed and list a number. BUT under my diagnostic ut list the following code. 2000-0151 Vadlidation 62721 Msg : Hard Drive 0- #########, incorrect status =3E.
Do I need a new hard drive or does this mean I have bad sectors?
I have problems with my Dell latitude d630. I get the error 2000-0146 in the diagnostics. I have tried all i know, and replaced the HDD.
I am running in xp, and do not have the xp cd. The Laptop is 6 years old, bought through my old school. Thats why i dont have the cd. I have made it so now i can start the laptop, and it boot up ok as long as the Wi-Fi is turned off. If i turn it on it takes maybe 1 minute until it crashes. Sometimes giving me the blue screen. When the Wi-Fi is off, i cant run the HDD defrag or HDD scanning for error. I cant run chkdsk /f either. I've tried to looks in bios, But dont understand too much.
I have a Dell Inspiron N5110. It ended up crashing on me about a week ago. I chose to restore the whole Computer. The computer ended up being stuck in restore mode. I let it be for three days--Too scared to shut it off. Finally I did. I ended up going and doing another restore. It worked. I started up my computer, set up the Internet and all that, then boom. It didn't want to start. It would restart itself every two seconds. I couldn't get past it shutting down on me. Then the last two days, it will start, and go to the "error recovery" page. I can select both options and both will Trigger it to restart again and open up the same page.
My friend has a 2006 hp pavilion running xp. I have a 2007 hp pavilion running vista(32 bit). They look completely identical. Her motherboard took a dump, but the hard drive is good, and she needs to get the data off of it. Can i take out my hard drive from my laptop and install hers to get the docs and data off of it? Is it the same connection? size?
Recently purchased the new i7 XPS 13 model (L322X). It's a lovely machine, but I have two problems with it.
Firstly, I can no longer enter the pre-boot setup screens. It did work originally, but now it simply doesn't load. I can still switch between different boot modes (Legacy BIOS mode, UEFI+SecureBoot, UEFI+No-SecureBoot) but I cannot actually get into the setup screens any longer.
If I switch to Legacy BIOS mode, then I do get text on the screen (bottom right) suggesting I can press F2. If I hit the key, the text changes colour slightly to suggest the keypress has been recognised, but then just proceeds to try and boot the machine (which fails as expected as there is no legacy bootloader).
Is there some kind of EFI variable that affects this - perhaps locking me out? I can still use the machine fine, but this is obviously disconcerting.
The second problem is manifested when I enter the Diagnostics utility in the EFI bootloader.
It reports all is well, except the Graphics:
Error Code: 2000-0332 Validation: 80763 Msg: Video memory - Video memory integrity test discrepancy
Please record the above Error and Validation codes
Further details are: Vendor Name: uEFI Product ID: Graphics Protocol Vendor Version: N/A VIDEO ADAPTER MEMORY TEST FAILED: 'Scan-test' AT LOCATION 0x3f00000 EXPECTED VALUE 0x0000000000000000 ACTUAL VALUE = 0x3030e6d8e977aa55 Test Results : Fail Error Code 2000-0332 Validation 80763 Msg: Video memory - Video memory integrity test discrepancy
few days back dell inspiron's windows got crashed.
I can reinstall But at the same time i will also lose my data.
is there any way I can get the window problem fixed keeping data safe at the same time
Model - Inspiron N5110 Error: windows recovery error initially (Blue screen) but now (Black Screen) which reads:File: BootBCDStatus: 0xc000000fInfo An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data
I tried to use repair option but didnt work as it said there is no system image...
Im having a major issue with my SR290 and Sony Repair Center specifically.
Ok, I just noticed that my hard drive have been running constantly and never under an idle state about 3 weeks ago.
I restored the computer twice but every time I turn it on, the hard drive and the fan makes really loud noises. Even when there are absolutely no applications running,
the hard drive runs and makes obvious noises. I used to be sitting late at night surfing the internet and having absolutely no noise from the laptop, but now even when I just turn it on, its really loud. If I leave it on for over a few hours, the fan exhaust starts to expel really warm air
HP G56-122US running Win 7. Bought a replacement 320 GB hard drive due being told by a repair shop that the hard drive had crashed and could not be recovered. Turned out to be the CPU, so I bought a hard drive enclosure so that I could use the new replacement hard drive as an external hard drive. Connected it to the computer and got messages that the software had installed and it was ready for use. Now, if I go to "control panel", click on "devices", it shows that it is installed and operating normally. However, if I try to use it by clicking on an item such as music, document, or a video, and click on "send to", it does not show up as one of the choices. Info that came with the enclosure says it is compatible with Win 7.
Every time I start my laptop Inspiron n5110, it goes to the blue error screen where it says 'collecting data for crash dump'. It usually happens in under a minute after starting the laptop. Once the screen shows I have to force restart by pressing the power key for few seconds.
using my unmodded 9300 and shut down for the night. This morning, when I tried to reboot, the process would get to the Windows splash screen, then flash a blue screen so fast I couldn't read it, then go to a black screen that gave me 5 options to start windows. No matter which one I pick, the same process happens again.
I videotaped the blue screen and it reads: a problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to my computer unmountable_boot_volume and then it gives me unhelpful advice on how to fix the problem.
I ran the Pre boot system assessment and all items passed. Then I ran the Dell Diagnostic Utility for "unable to boot O/S" with the following results: HD Read Test error: 00F0:0244 and HD Verify Test error: 00F0:1A44. Both of these were on sectors in the middle of the volume and I canceled both tests after about 10 errors. All other memory, graphics, and HD tests passed.
I tried booting from the XP CD and repairing from the CD with no change. I ran chkdsk /p and it found one or more errors on the volume.
bootcfg /list gives me: there are currently no boot entries available to display.
What are my best options on trying to recover this without losing data? I have a fairly recent backup, but would like to try to save what's on the HD. Parallel install? What is fixboot used for?
Dell lists my drive as: M7601 Hard Drive, 60GB, 9.5MM, 7.2K Hitachi, Ibm Moraga
What is the drive of choice to replace this if I need to?
The web cam will show up at times in the device manager but only under show hidden devices. I have gone through the delete the cam and usb hub from devices, load every update, tried every trouble shooter. and reloaded the operating system.
I opened it up, looked at the IDE connectors very closely and they are good, tried 4 drives so far, run LIVE Linux fine as long as there is no hard drive in, the thing is, It does shows the drives in BIOS thou, and using F12 boot menu, hard drive is in the option.
My HP G62-b23SA reports a imminent hard disk failure. Hard disk test reports SMART Error (301). Advised to back up the system and contact HP support to enquire if Hard disk needs to be replaced or just needs repair. I have since backed up the system, should it be replaced?
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?
