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?
Will not boot..has the error msg "Boot device not found" "please install an OS on your hard disk". Has "2" flashing lights, can only access F1 & F2 from boot menu. F9,F10 & "enter to continue setup" options take u right back to initial error msg screen.
In F2 diagnostics, ran memory test and passed but failed hard drive test on both quick & extensive. Failed id#M0FW03-6AD79M-XD7X0K-60CM03.
Today, I was prompted by the HP Support Assistant software that a BIOS update was available, so I had the application download and install the update. When the computer came back up, it is stating the a boot device cannot be found.
I have an HP ENVY TouchSmart m7-j010dx Notebook PC running Windows 8.1. Laptop was functioning just fine prior to the update, which means I probably shouldn't have allowed the BIOS update.
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?)
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 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 have had a Pavillion g6 2270dx for a little over a year (just out of warranty) and when I power up, the message "Boot Disk not found" appears. Along with "please install an operating system" "Hard Disk (3FO). I have tried all the solutions on line without any success.
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.
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 have a hp pavilion touch 14 notebook pc which turned out to have a faulty Hard disk as the OS was not booting and the system test's indicated that the hard disk had errors. I replaced the hard disk with a new one and before installing the Hard Disk I formatted it with a win 8.1 installation. I was thinking the laptop would just boot normally to win8, but instead gave me a screen saying:
boot device not found please install an operating system on your hard disk hard disk (3f0)
The hard disk is new and I don't no how its giving me this error!
Also, this laptop doesn't seem to want to boot from a cd to format!
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.
I have a Pavilion dv7 1245dx with Windows Vista 64 Bit bought 2009 at Best Buy. It slid off the arm of the couch onto a carpeted floor while shut down. Next day started ok, got into yahoo, facebook, then kind of froze up. Eventually, would not do anything, manually shut it down, started it back up. Black screen, 'No Bootable Device-Insert Boot Disc And Press Any Key'. It will not accept recovery discs that I made after purchase. Start up test ok, memory test ok, hard disk failed 'Boot Drive Not Found'. Caps lock light is blinking. I saw something in a forum about resetting or reseating the hard drive but no explanantion how to do it.
Installed replacement hard drive in Latitude E6510. Ordered same drive as originally installed from Dell. When I try to install OS on new drive I get the "No Boot Device Found" error. When I enter set up the HDD and DVD drive are shown as installed. I changed the boot sequence to have the DVD run as first boot device.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 have the HP Pavilion dv6 originally was with Windows7 recently I have installed the windows 8 64bit. everything was working well now I have a problem with the internet adapter. the system cannot find it and the troubleshoot screen couldn't sole the problem. tried to uninstall the drivers also did not work. and your website couldn't find my laptop model don't know why!
Internet adapter: Realtek PCle GBE Familly Controller.
Also one device in my device manager marked as an unkown.
I have a HP pavilion dv7-4180sd compatible with windows 7 (64 bit ). i am running windows 8.1 pro (64 bit) currently. I have tried a bundle of bluetooth drives and configuration setting to get my bluetooth work but it is not yet working. All the softwares say that "Bluetooth hardware disabled or not found" . in addition to this my wifi button (f12) is not turning wifi on or off.
Actually i have on my HP notebook ( H0W28EA ) SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. But i want install Windows 7. I put pendrive to my notebook, boot, and... error : No device driver were found. I don't have DVD/CD with drivers with my notebook.. I don't understand which drivers i must download.
I have a hp mini 110-3538tu and it has been playing up in every which way and very slow so I have a USB with Windows 7 which I am trying to install over windows 7 starter but when I get to the part where I have to select the driver to be installed I can choose my USB but it say no device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, then click OK. I cannot get past here.
I cannot get any audio from my IdeaPad. When I randomly select a mp3 and try to play it with Windows Media Player, I immediately get a mesage that the sound device can't be found or is busy (or something to that effect). I also don't hear sound from internet videos or system sounds such as the start up song. The sound is not muted and volume is at 100%.
I have uninstalled the device drivers for both the Connexant audio and microphone, reloaded them, and rebooted. Same problem.
My question, of course, is: restoring sound from my computer short of a system reset?
