Acer Aspire V3-371 :: Cannot Boot To MS Windows After Upgrading BIOS Form V1.05 To V1.08

Oct 29, 2014

I just buy an Acer Aspire V3-371, then I delete all partitions in HDD and install MS Windows and driver for this notebook. Everything are OK until I ugrade BIOS form v1.05 to v1.08. Now, it cannot boot to MS Windows and shows me "No Bootable Device".
 
I try to reinstall MS Windows, but I see a notice "Windows can't be installed on this drive" with details "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks".

Dell :: 9300 Hard Drive Error Unable To Boot O/s

Apr 8, 2009

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?

Lenovo Y410 P/Y/Z Series :: Unable To Boot From The Windows 8 Installation Disc Or From The Hard Drive

Nov 6, 2014

I have a Lenovo Y410P that will not boot. The BIOS only sees to PXE boot. It does not attempt to boot from the Windows 8 installation disc, or from the hard drive that I reinstalled Windows on myself. I can boot to both of these on other computers, so I know they are not the problem. I'm thinking it's BIOS or motherboard related, but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Dell XPS L502X :: Push Power Fan Runs Only / No Boot Up

Feb 15, 2013

So I've been having some trouble for a while with this thing, when it goes into standby or is starting up often it will do this thing where no lights come on at all, including the power button, all I hear is the fan whirl at top speed. That's it.

Sometimes if I let it sit for a day and try it again, it boots no problem. Sometimes I have to remove the battery, press Fn for a while, and then unplug power and it will boot. Sometimes removing the Flee power by holding down the power button after everything, ac adapter and battery, are removed. But this time nothing is working.

This thing is not even two years old, and I am getting further and further discouraged by the Dell brand. I have always had great sucess with my work computer's being Dell so thought I would go that route for my personal. But alas I've read numerous things with this type of laptop having fan/video issues though nothing sounds like my problem.

All it does is spin it's fan when the power button is pressed. It got into this state when the screen was closed and it was forced into standby. It would not come out of standby, and would not shutdown by holding the power button. Had to removed battery and ac to get it to shut down. It has yet to come back.

Dell XPS 15 L502X :: DVD / Blu-ray Drive Not Working After Windows 7 Reinstall

Apr 7, 2014

I had been using my DVD/Bluray drive but after a reinstall of windows 7 I am not able to access the DVD / Bluray drive. or rather I am able to access it after re-installing the driver and then after I take out the disk in the drive again the drive becomes unrecongnizeable

I reinstalled the firmware PLDS DS-6E2SH 12.7 Tray BD-Combo Firmware Update(SE2_CD11.zip ) from Dell support site but this did not work.

The only way I can get it to work is by uninstalling the device, rebooting and when it starts up again, it reinstall the driver and the drive works. A thing to note is that this also does not work every time.

Dell XPS 15 L502X :: On Boot Up Message Appears No Supported Webcam Connected

Jul 11, 2011

Okay, so all was working fine until today, my webcam has stopped working, When i boot Dell Webcam Central i get a message at the bottom stating "No supported webcam connected".

Video chats on MSN and facebook do not work, it's like the webcam no longer exists.

I think it was caused by some other webcam software, which i've since uninstalled.

I've tried reinstalling the "Quanta H.264 Integrate Webcam Rev: A00" driver from the resource disk - it did not work.

I've tried to use system restore to restore to a time i KNOW the webcam was working, it did not work.

I was trying to find the executable to reinstall Webcam Central to see if that had any effect, Went to the "Download Factory Installed Software (My Dell Downloads)" section of the website, and i get this message:

 Register Your System

Please proceed to register your system by clicking "Register New System". Registration will allow us to display the software entitled for download. You will be automatically registered after your click "allow" on the service tag scanning utility. 

I tick the box and click Register System - Nothing happens. It just stays on the same page. I thought this was because i was in Firefox so i tried IE... same problem. Except this time IE has an error on page.

So... i tried emailing dell support... yet ANOTHER error:

Error determining system information. Please try again later.

I try to use the live chat... guess what...! for contacting Dell Chat. We are sorry to inform you that the Chat support is no more available for the product selected. For complex technical query, requiring an immediate response, please contact our technical support phone hotline. For non-complex technical query, please contact Dell technical support by E-mail.

Dell XPS L502x :: Laptop Won't Boot / Fan Turns On / Spinning Continuously And Emitting Cold Wind

Sep 17, 2014

So I broke my laptop (xps l502x) while traveling. The hinges were broken so I couldn't open or close the lid. Dell has stopped supporting this model so I had to get my own parts and replace it.

After replacing, I realized that the screen turns on but is white and the motherboard beeps 8 times continually. I realized that was an issue with the lcd connector. I tried to fix the connection. Now the laptop turned on, booted. But I couldn't see anything on the screen. The screen was lit but displayed nothing, everything was black. Then I removed the lcd connector and put it back again. This time the laptop doesn't even turn on but fan turns on with a loud spinning sound and emits cold air continuously.

Dell XPS 15 9530 :: Unable To Boot Using AHCI

Nov 4, 2014

Yesterday i got my new XPS 15 9530, that's where i ran into some problems.Laptop is unable to work under AHCI in any possible configuration.It ships with 32GB SSD + 1TB HDD, i unscrew and swapped the 1TB HDD with a new Samsung 850 Pro 512GB. I started installing windows while on Intel's SRT (raid), then i noticed it and after installation was over i changed to AHCI.

Then i had to re-install, i boot using windows disk (talking about 8.1 pro) and windows installer was slow during this period... then after i reached the drive listing, i couldn`t touch either drivers. I couldn`t create partition in the samsung pro, i was receiving the 0x80070057 and a couple errors more of the same type. I started playing around with the GPT & MBR formatting, used external computer to create partitions, layouts but nothing.Whenever AHCI is on, i can`t manage to work using the Samsung 850 Pro disk.

So now i`m using Intel's SRT (raid instead) while having a single disk (samsung 850 pro) where windows is installed, while not achieving full read/write speeds because of the samsung magician that has to work with AHCI, and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (irst). The other drive (32GB SSD) is formatted for linux, i have to disable secure boot to boot into there but that's fine.How can i get AHCI to work? I tried so many ways but clearly nothing..

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Unable To Boot From CD / USB?

Jun 16, 2012

I need to reinstall xp on my Dell Inspiron 6400. I don't have any recovery disc or what so ever, only windows xp disc.

The weird thing is that the laptop won't boot from anything but the HD. To format the drive i had it connected externaly to other computer then formatted it from there. I tried using boot selector menu (F12) and selecting cd-rom - nothing happanes.

Also tried booting from bootable usb drive with xp installation on it - nothing happens. Also tried changing boot sequence in BIOS - no affect.

I thought my disc maybe is bad - but i checked in other laptop and it boots great,both from my disc and from my usb flash drive. How to make it boot? Tried resetting the bios to its default.

Also, I thought maybe its sata drivers issues which needs to be slipstreamed onto the windows xp installation - but i hardly think that's it, cause this laptop doesn't even have an option for AHCI mode.

Dell Inspiron 14R N4010 :: Laptop Unable To Boot Into Windows

Jan 31, 2013

I own an Inspiron N4010 14R dell laptop. When I restarted my laptop yesterday, i couldn't boot into windows and windows logo was rotating forever. So I thought OS was curropted and tried to reinstall OS. But it also didn't work. I couldn't able to install OS. But I could able to delete a partition and refresh it.

Then I ran a diagnosis on my computer and it showed an error code 2000-0146. (saying HDD needs to be replaced)

I called Dell support center and asked them about the issue. They said my hdd nedds to be replaced. So I bought a new 2.5" SATA seagate hard drive and installed it in the system.

But even after that, the same problem exists. But this time Diagnostic doesn't show any error. My warranty period is void.

Dell XPS 12 :: Unable To Boot Any OS - Stuck At Windows 8 Loading Logo

Mar 7, 2014

Dell XPS 12 Laptop. 

Symptoms: Unable to load windows 8, unable to load windows repair, Unable to load windows 8 installer DVD, unable to boot into Linux, Unable to load Linux live CDs or USB sticks, unable to even use an MSdos boot USB. 

Problem just appeared one day, one month out of my 1 year warranty so I began troubleshooting myself. After replacing the SSD, Motherboard, and unplugging every single cable, even disassembling the display and disconnecting the Windows button, Webcam, and touchscreen cables. Still I Could not get any OS to boot. On a whim I powered on the laptop them promptly disconnected the daughter board and sure enough my OS booted right away. Upon further inspection I learned that the Auto-rotate or rotate lock button had become stuck/damaged due to a fall or hard bump. I ripped off the button and ordered a new daughter board online and all is well now.

HP 255 G1 OS/Software :: Unable To Boot From USB Using Windows 7

Dec 15, 2013

my girlfriend bought herself an HP 255 G1 notebook which came a week ago. She ordered the version with Ubuntu pre-installed on it (not Windows 8). However, the pre-installed Ubuntu had a lot of flaws - the internet connection keeps disconnecting randomly, many updates cannot be installed, random errors keep occurring, sometimes the interface becomes unresponsive etc. Long story short; my girlfriend asked me to put Windows 7 on the notebook, as I am using Linux and have my old Win7 key unused.
 
So I prepared a Windows 7 USB stick, tried it out on my own notebook (works fine) and then tried it out on the HP 255 G1. The first couple times the USB stick wasn't recognized by the notebook. After fiddling around a bit, I have managed to get it recognized, but every time it is, the screen goes black and starts flickering.

I have tried turning Legacy mode on and off but to no avail.
 
I have read that this might have something to do with "UEFI", although I am not sure what that is or whether it's really related to my problem.

The very first thing I need to know whether it is generally possible or not to install any kind of Windows on this notebook, because if it's not, I will have to hurry to return it quickly.
 
Here are the system specs of the notebook. I am using a FAT32 formatted USB stick with a 64-bit Version of Windows 7 on it.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z570 - Unable To Boot From CD

Dec 10, 2014

My Lenovo z570 will not boot from CD.  I have the system recovery CDs and another bootable CD that work in another Lenovo so I know the discs are fine.  The boot order is set properly (CD first) and even hitting F12 on the boot up and selecting the CD drive again doesn't work.  The drive does work - I can burn and play CDs.  I uninstalled the drive and reinstalled and updated the BIOS to the latest.  I see others with this problem have been advised to change UEFI or Secure Boot setting but these options are not available in my BIOS.

Acer Aspire 5755 :: Unable To Boot To Windows 7

Nov 13, 2014

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5755 laptop with 4GB RAM and 500 GB Disk. Now the issue I am facing is, it doesn't boot up. It just sits at a screen for sometime and then even if we reboot it goes to the same screen which is much prior to loading Windows and I believe just after the POST. I checked in the BIOS that hard-drive was not getting detected. I unplugged replugged ..took it out, put it back in but nothing worked. Than I removed that hard-drive and replaced it with a working hard-drive of my fren's & eventually it booted up fine. Hence this isolates to be an issue with the hard drive. Now my question is that, "is there any upper limit on the size of the hard-drive (as the inboxed one was 500GB)". I am planning to take 1TB hard drive. So will that work In addition to this, is there any link provided by Acer which I can browse and check what all Hard-drives are supported / compatible / recommended by Acer. I have been a big fan of Acer Laptops from a long time and would not want to buy a new laptop just because of this simple hard drive issue.

Acer :: AS 6920 Unable To Use Dvd Drive

Jul 5, 2009

when i insert a dvd into the drive, the drive tries to read the disc and the yellow led turns on, after a few seconds it finishes reading and when i go to open it in computer, double click on dvd drive, there is nothing on the dvd. i tried a couple of different dvd's, but the same thing happens.

One thing that makes me think that the problem is software, is my ability to boot from disc. i can boot the recovery disks, windows xp, linux... whatever.

i've updated to bios v1.14 from 1.10, but the problem persisted. i always tried removing upperfilters & lowerfilters and even restoring to factory default settings. nothing worked. i remeber that this happened to me about 5 months ago, and that suddenly it was fixed, but two weeks ago it returned.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Unable To Boot Due To Black Screen - Preparing Automatic Repair

HP Envy 17 3277nr OS/Software :: Unable To Boot And Install Windows 8.1 From DVD

May 14, 2014

I have an ENVY 17 (3277nr) with windows 8.1 in it but I'm unable to update it since several months ago so I decided to reinstall the OS so I went to the windows site that lets you download an ISO image of windows 8.1 to burn it into a disc (right now I dont have a 4gb usb at hand but is also possible).
 
I already burned the disc by right clicking the ISO and selecting 'burn disc image' and changed the boot options but every time I turn on my computer all I see is a single underscore and then the regular windows 8 boot screen.
 
I already visited wbesites in this regard and I've read things like the windows 8 UEFI thing (not on my laptop since I've upgraded from w7) and the security settings on the BIOS but none of them seem to fix the problem.
 
Additional details:
 
Oddly, when trying to open the burned dvd it only says 4.37gb out of 4.37gb, do you think my dvd drive might be damaged?
