Dell Inspiron Unmountable Boot Volume,

Whenever the computer is turned on, it is "shut down" to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information Message:

Hello! Have you made any changes to your PC recently? Hardware change or software install/uninstall? If not, this could mean you HDD is dying or there is a problem with a drvier. You may be able to do a repair install if the hard drive is not damaged because according to what I've found it is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_SEQUENCE STOP:0x0000000ED. It means the there is somthing either not right with the boot sector or the file system. It's likely that when you boot you computer, if you press f10 on some OEM computers at POST (Power On Self Test) you can access a screen that allows you to repair your computer when you follow on screen directions. Be careful! If you have data you want to keep on your main C: drive, all will be restored to factory condition if you choose the wrong option! Be sure to choose repair! This option overwrites certain OS files. If you have Windows XP disk you can boot off that an do a recovery console /r when the CD boots.

Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer and Manage. Check for hidden devices ubder View and delete all CD drives. Reboot and Windows will auto install.

You have a bigger problem if it fails to install and work. Then I would try re-seating the drive physically. GL

When I turn on my Dell Inspiron 910 mini, it says tht media test failure, check cable. Operating system not found. Can somebody help me? I dnt know what to do

check the Boot order in the BIOS and make sure that is isn't set to Boot from LAN or Network first as the error "PXE *** Media Test Failure" ( where *** refers to the NIC card ID )

does in fact refer to a pc that is trying to Boot from the LAN or Network first.

If your boot order is set to boot from your Hard Drive first then I would suspect a bad Hard Drive.

Reboot your computer.

This is necessary, as entering the BIOS utility requires that you be outside of your normal operating system.

Press the key indicated during the startup messages to enter the BIOS.

This is traditionally either the "Esc / Delete" or of the "F2" key, but it can be anything, so pay attention to the screen as your computer loads up.

Navigate through the BIOS menu screens, using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter to which device has been set to boot from.

using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults this will change the boot order press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps

My Dell inspiron 13r laptop is emitting a very high pitched noise when it is on. I have tried reinstalling my audio drives but nothing seems to be working... Please help

If it is a relatively quiet, high pitched noise, it may not even be from your speakers. I've experienced a high pitched noise whenever i plug in my AC adapter to my PSP, so there is a chance it might be power related.

Check your system with external speakers, if it gives same problem its mean that the audio drivers od the system gone corrupt, needs re-installation,
if the system gives the correct sound, means that the speakers gone damaged, need repair/replacement, you can do by your self if you are technical enough otherwise you need technical assistance from Dell Support
Good Luck

Dell inspiron 1440.boot mngr missing.askin to press ctrn+alt+dele. nothin happenin at all by pressing.

Hi sriyan1724,

If the Computer is displaying the "Boot MGR Missing" error message, the issue may be due to corrupted or missing Operating System files. In this case, you will need to repair the Operating System in the Computer to fix the issue.

I would suggest that you insert the Operating System installation Disc into the CD/DVD Drive, restart the Computer and the select the "Repair your Computer" option to repair the Operating System.

Please make sure that you are selecting the "Repair Your Computer" option to repair the Operating System in the Computer. Re-installing the Operating System will erase the data in the Hard Drive. Hence, double check that you are doing a "Repair".

Please let me know if you have any questions or require any further assistance.

Good Luck!

Thanks for using FixYa.

I need to know how to reset it

How to reset a laptop charger? A laptop charger can't be reset, it's just a piece of wire that provides power to the laptop. Just unplug it and it's reset.

If you want to know how to reset the laptop itself, click on Start, goto the > next to Shut Down and click Restart.
If you're looking to reformat it, start up the computer and enter the BIOS. There should be an option which says "Press F1 / F2 / DEL (Etc.) to Enter Setup". Inside the Setup (be very careful what you do in here), you want to set your boot priority to boot from the CD ROM. This is usually under standard options and should say something like 1st Boot Device, 2nd Boot Device, etc.

Save and exit the setup, then pop in your Windows (or System Recovery) disc. When it says "Press any key to boot from the CD", press a key on your keyboard and follow the instructions on-screen to reformation.
