Invalid Partition Table

When I start my laptop it only shows one message: "Invalid Partition Table", I therefore can't do anything with this.

I bought this laptop (XPS 1330-Window Vista Premium Home 64 bit) from BestBuy 5 months ago but and didn't receice any Window Vista DVD installation so now I don't know how to repair this error.

Are there anybody help me to solve this problem?
Thanks,

Now a day, no installation CD or DVD come with any of the new laptop anymore. you need to make a backup copy of the operating system when you first fired it up. if yu did. you still can make a backup from programs>accessories>backup.
but since the laptop is DOA. look for your receipt, the laptop should have one year warranty from best-buy. if not it should be have the warrant from DELL.
since you don't have the DVD. you can request one from DELL.

Invalid partition table


This means that the operating system has crashed.. You can try to insert the operating system's disk and you can repair the operating system.

This happens when some file are missing which are essential for the system start up.

Could you please inform me about the operating system that you previously had? It would be easier for me to help you.

Thanks

My dell mini laptop 910 shows operating system not found what do i need to do to get this problem fixed


HI. Welcome to Fixya.
Its either you havecall your dell to replace your HDD or get a recovery disc from dell and Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition.
Warning This command can damage your partition table if a virus is present or if a hardware problem exists. If you use this command, you may create inaccessible partitions. We recommend that you run antivirus software before you use this command. We also recommend that you backup your data before you use this command. If the fixmbr command detects an invalid or non-standard partition table signature, the fixmbr command prompts you for permission before rewriting the MBR. The fixmbr command is supported only on x86-based computers.

For more information about Recovery Console, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:



Hope this resolved your issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

Toshiba error 08 064b 000 (invalid partition table) How do I fix it. I tried using the disk but it doesn't work.


Invalid Partition Table is a hard drive error and possibly is a dead hard drive. Therefore I would check the drive for errors by loading your rescue disc and attempting to get back into it. If you cannot, fit a fresh hard drive and run your rescue disc that you made when you first used the laptop.

I cannot start windows xp. Reboot not possible. I get error message Invalid partition table. Recovery package does not work, system failure. What can I do?


Sadly, you've lost the hard disk partitions. You can try to recover that with software from Hiren's Boot CD, under Partition Tools: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/. If that won't do it for you you will have to repartition the HDD and reinstall Windows, but you will lose everything from it.

The bad news is that probably the hard disk drive is failing so you may need to get a replacement.

Wont boot up,black screen.message on screen says,invalid partitio


When you power up your computer, the system examines the master partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by an incorrect or missing active partition.
To resolve this issue, consider the following steps:
  • Boot up the computer with a Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select the correct bootup device before you do that.
  • At the DOS command prompt, type in: fdisk
  • Question - Do you wish to enlarge large disk support (Y/N) ?
  • Enter: Y
  • Now to check for active partition, enter: 2
  • Look under the Status column. The active partition is usually assigned to the drive which contains your operating system.
  • If there's no active partition set, enter the number of the partition to make active
This must solve your problem.

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table


When your computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, it tried to connect to a network-accessible "boot-server" via the Ethernet adapter.

However, if there's no cable connected to the computer's Ethernet port, you will get the "check the cable" error-message.

So, your real problem is "invalid partition table", which means that the very first record on the disk-drive is either missing or corrupt.
That first record contains the "partition table", which lists the size of the hard-drive, and the size of each partition (usually only one) on the hard-drive.

So, you'll need to buy an adapter that has a USB-plug on one end, and a connector for your "SATA" or "IDE" hard-drive at the other end.

Remove the hard-drive from your computer, attach it to the connector, and plug-in the USB connector to a USB port on another computer, and then use software to delete and then reconstruct the partition table.

Or, the hard-drive is failing, and must be replaced (maybe under warranty???).
