Have you tried booting from CD? Does it still happen? If so, your RAM might be damaged. Or it might be an overheating problem. Check the fan outtake for dust.

Hi Muzik1

BOOT MEDIA ERROR AT POST

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System, consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question, including information about your Operating System.

Unfortunately the symptoms you describe can have several causes such as Boot Menu settings error, incorrect BIOS settings, a Boot Sector virus or corruption of the System Files.

Check whether there is a CD or DVD in the laptop's optical drive and if the Boot Menu is set to 'Boot from CD'.

Remove any CD/DVD, Memory Card or USB Flash Drive from the computer. Look for the correct function key to tap at the bottom of the initial POST screen to bring up the Boot Menu and use the arrow keys to select 'HDD' then press enter.

If this does not resolve the problem, tap either the F2 or DEL key (see options at the bottom of the screen) on the initial POST screen to enter the BIOS Setup and select 'Load Default Values' > F10 > enter.

If this does not work, tap the correct function key to enter the Boot Options Menu (often F6, F7 or F8) and use the arrow key to select Start in Safe Mode.

If the computer boots in Safe Mode > Start > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > Restore my computer to an earlier time > select a highlighted date on the calendar to the left and an event on the event schedule to the right that both precede the first incidence of the fault. > Restore > Restart the computer.

If this does not resolve the problem, use the Operating System installation disc to perform Start up Repair (Vista/Win 7) or press 'R' at the second repair option after the F8 agreement screen (Win XP).

If this does not work or no repair option is available, you will probably have to remove your hard drive and back up any important data to a 2nd computer or external storage device and then re-install your operating system, device drivers, programs, utilities and security software all over again.

I hope this helps.

When pc is booting , fom begining , I have 3 options. F9 =boot device menu F10 =Rom base setup or F12=NTWORK service boot! Nether 3 work. Only erreor loading operating system! Wht can i do about it.


I think you need to re-install your os for some files that the Operating System need to boot properly is missing. First, run your xp or any operating system that your using and select repair. after doing this , booting problem will no longer be a problem to you my friend. Have a nice day and i was hoping this would solve your boot problem.

My PRODUCT ID is 00426-OEM-8992662-00497. so pls send me activation key for this product id. it is already expired. so pls help me.


If this is an OEM version of Windows then it has no activation key as OEM versions are "Pre-Activated" via the BIOS when booting to the OEM media to install the operating system.
If you installed the OS without booting to the OEM media (Or installed OEM media on a system from a different manufacturer), it will prompt for activation and there is no OEM key to activate it (Catch 22)
If this is an OEM system (HP, Acer, Dell etc) and you have the OEM media, boot to the media and run a clean installation of Windows (Delete the existing NTFS partition then create a new NTFS partition) to resolve

"Dell Media Direct" on Inspiron 1525


Make sure you do not have a bootable CD or DVD in the drive. If that does not resolve, then try holding the "home" (Media Direct) button while pressing the Power button on.

Shutdown the computer,disconnect external peripherials.
Turn on the computer and hit F8 key as soon as you restart the computer
You will get the windows advance options menu.
Select the Safe mode option and hit enter.
If the computer boots in safe mode, do a system restore to previous date.
If computer restore then issue is resolved.
If still unable to boot in safe mode.
Ran a harddrive diagnostic.If harddrive test passes. If harddrive test fails replace harddrive.
Boot the system using the windows xp or vista operating system disk. Try to repair the OS then reboot the system and check.
If still unable to boot possible issue with corrupt operating system.
Reinstall Operating system. / Recover System . Good Luck.

Blue screen


Hello,

Try to check if you have installed a driver that makes your system boot unsuccessful. Also try to run it using safe mode by rebooting your Operating system and pressing F8 to enabled the safe mode loading. Otherwise the worst scenario here is to reinstall the Operating system.

Thanks

Dell media direct won't work


Hello,

Here is the steps,

1.Turn on your computer.

2.Insert the reinstallation media (Dell Media Direct CD/DVD) into the CD/DVD drive, then restart the computer.

3. press F12 when the bios page comes up and then select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.

"Option 1" from the menu if you wish to use all of the hard drive for you operating system installation. This is the most common selection and how is your computer was originally shipped to you, unless you specified an operating system partition size at the time you ordered you computer.

"Option 2" to designate a size for your operating system and have a data partition. This allows you to specify a size for the operating system partittion, leaving the remainder, of the hard drive configured as a "data" partition ("D")

4. Once you have prepared the drive and you have returned to the main recovery menu, remove the installation media and replace it with you operating system reinstallation media. Select the option to reboot your computer. If your computer does not automatically start the media, press <F12> to access the boot menu and select the Cd/DVD boot option.

5.Install your operating system, select the Primary partition when prompted. If you have two hard drives, select the primary partition on the same disk where hte media direct partition resides. Once the OS is installed and the necessary drivers are installed you can begin the reinstallation of the dell mediaDirect software.

Good Luck,
Austin
