Lenovo P500 P/Y/Z Series :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

May 25, 2014

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?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y500 / Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Jul 31, 2013

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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z510 - Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed After BIOS Update

Dec 13, 2013

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).

Acer Aspire E1 522-3657 :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Oct 11, 2014

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.

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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P Webcam Disappear - Unknown USB Device Descriptor Request Failed

Mar 28, 2014

Today I found an error in device manager "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" with error code 43. Then I found out webcam doesn't work/disappear. So I try to fix the problem and reset bios setting seem to get it back.

But in windows when I try to use webcam, at first it seem to work normally but after a few minutes it disappear and reappear immediately. Repeating this a few time it was again disappeared with the same "unknown usb device descriptor request failed" error.

Repeating the same bios thing again and it's back, running normally. Then I leave webcam program on(cyberlink youcam) to observe. It working fine for around ten minutes then it was repeating disappear and reappear again and this time it blinking like in this video [URL] .... so I turn off webcam, leave it for minutes and running youcam again and it's back to normal(Still working normally when I post this (working for around 25 minute now)).

What cause this. Does this mean my webcam is failing?

Also my webcam LED indicator flickering rapidly like the light bulb when turn webcam on and stop flickering when I point the bright light to the webcam. Is this normal?

Right after I post this it disappear and reappear again but only one time not repeating.

Now "unknown usb device descriptor request failed"  is back and webcam disappear again.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W520 - IEEE 1394 Device Missing

The IEEE 1394 device is now completely missing from device manager. It seems like hardware failure. BIOS reset and factory restore did not resolve the matter.
I have contacted a local service depot so the machine will go in for warranty service next week (after labour day weekend) if not resolved beforehand.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T420 Takes Too Long To Hibernate When Close The Lid - Random Device Noise On Boot Up

Sep 3, 2013

Ever since i've wiped the machine, i've been having these two problems. When I close the lid, it used to go to sleep straight away, but now I can see the sleep light (and the power button) flash and flash, then it goes to sleep.
When waking up it goes through the lenovo startup screen and resuming windows, then it asks for a password, before I used to open the lid and it would ask me for the password straight away. I know it was going to sleep because I could hear the beep straight away when I closed and opened it, but now it just takes too long.
Also, everytime I boot up into windows or resume into windows from a sleep state, I can hear the device noise, like something is being plugged in/out. But there is nothing being plugged in or out at the time. I can't get to device manager quick enough to see what it is that is causing it. But all drivers seem okay.

Also noticed, when the lid is closed, randomly the laptop turns off (hear the beep) an then turns back off again.
T420 model number: 4180-PR1 with OS: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

HP Pavilion Dv7 1451NR OS/Software :: Can't Boot From 2nd Drive By Default

Oct 1, 2014

My Problem: Can't boot from second drive by default

I have an HP Pavillion dv7 1451NR, product number NV204UA#ABA.

I have two drives installed. I have Windows 7 64-bit installed on drive 0 and Ubuntu 32-bit installed on drive 1.
I can successfully boot either operating system by the following procedure:

Power up
Press escape-key to get to BIOS
Press F9-key to get to boot menu
Boot menu shows two drives named “Internal Hard Drive”
If I select the first entry named “Internal Hard Drive” I boot to Windows 7.
If I select the 2nd entry named “Internal Hard Drive” I boot to Ubuntu.
I power up if I do NOT press escape, the machine boots to Windows after the timeout. My Problem: I want to boot to Ubuntu by default.
I've checked the HP bios and I don't believe there is any way to do this by changing the boot priority in BIOS. The BIOS doesn't seem to differentiate between the two hard drives. I only has one entry for “Internal Hard Drive”.
I believe an approach that should work is:

Use bcdedit or easybcd to create a BCD record that points to GRUB.
Create a GRUB config file that “chain” loads Ubuntu.
Use bcdedit to move the GRUB entry as the default.
I've tried various permutations but can't get it to work.

How do I discover where the initial boot image is for GRUB?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E531 Not Able To Boot From CD It Always Boot Into Preinstalled Windows 8

Nov 14, 2013

just received my new E531 Edge Thinkpad from Lenovo.
Right now I'm not able to boot from CD, it will always boot into the preinstalled Windows 8.
I've tried the F12 method to select a different boot device during startup where I can see the installed DVD RAM drive and select it, but no effect it returns immediately to the select screen.
I've played around with the various BIOS setting disabling the secure boot option and changing the boot order so that the DVD drive is first. Then the system will check for the the CD (you can hear it spinning during start up) but will start into Windows 8 right afterwards again.
I checked with various bootable CDs as well as DVDs but always same effect.
What am I missing? Any other BIOS or Windows 8 settings I need to change for that.
I have other Lenovo notebooks running like the X230, the T520 or an older T61 where booting from CD never seems to be an issue.
As the DVD drive is working correctly within Windows 8 I assume that it is in general functioning and shouldn't be broken.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad P500 Screen Went Dim

Sep 29, 2013

I've had my IdeaPad Notebook P500 for over a year, and rarely had an issue with it.  Today, I accidently touched the F11 key, which happens to be the "Brightness minus" key. 
Immediately, the screen went very dim, to the point where it actually hurts my eyes to be typing this. 
I can adjust the brightness sliders up and down on the screen, using both the F11/F12 keys and the slider box available from the "Brightness" selection under "Settings".  Even though the sliders go up and down, the screen stays the same very dark level.
Windows 8 64-bit is my OS.
I have uninstalled and re-installed the Intel HD driver.
I have shut down the laptop and turned it back on while holding the F12 (Brightness plus) button. It was useless, though.
I have rebooted several times.

Lenovo P500 P/Y/Z Series :: Don't Get Icon In System Tray

May 5, 2014

I have a Lenovo Ideapad p500 Touch. I recently upgraded my router to an AC1900 Router, and with it i wanted to update the internal wifi on the Lenovo. I purchased an Intel 7260 AC Dual Band with Bluetooth seen HERE . Install was pretty straight forward, seeing how im a IT Tech. Where I had an issue is with the drivers and getting bluetooth properly set up.  The wifi part works without an issue. I can't seem to get bluetooth to work at all. When i go to device manager I see bluetooth but only if I select to view "hidden Devices". Im running Win 8.1 64x, Ive tried installing the drivers from intel, but it never seems to actually install the bluetooth driver. I don't get the icon in the system tray.

Dell :: More M1330 Boot From USB Failed

Jan 24, 2010

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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: P500 Battery Shows Charging But Stuck At 40%

Feb 18, 2014

My p500 shows that it is at 40% and that it IS charging (most of the other stops states that it isn't charging).  It could be that windows thinks the battery is charging, but it obviously isnt because when I pull the power plug, the laptop immediatley shuts off.  Obviously the battery doesn't have a charge.
I got the latest version of the lenovo energy manager, but that didn't do anything.  Also, I don't recall the enery manager being there.  I am almost certain that it was not there prior to windows 8.1 upgrade.
Device Manager shows all of the hardware with no missing drivers/unknown hardware.
I have been running the battery conditioner which is suppose to run the battery down and then charge it back up. That has been going on for a few hours and it is still at 40%, where it has been stuck from the start.
