First thing to check is to go into the boot menu and use the arrow keys to move over to boot and make sure the harddrive is number one in the boot order and then save it turn the computer off then back on.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 8200

it happens when your laptop does not recognize the hard drive, look in bios as suggested it will say hard drive not found. Sometimes taking hard drive out (remove power and battery 1st) and putting it back in works; otherwise, do os complete reinstall, delete old partition and install windows. Of course you will have to have a good hard drive and boot from cdrom as suggested by prior person-

I think your lap top fails to detect your hard disk. Enter Bios settings and confirm that the hard disk is detected.

SOURCE: 'No bootable devices

No bootable devices = the hard disk appears empty, either Windows was corrupted or the hard disk has died.
Reinstall. If the install fails to complete or the problem comes back the hd is dead = replace it.

SOURCE: i got an acer aspire

Start the computer and keep tapping F2.
No u will be in the setup utility.
Press F9 for loading default settings and press enter.
Press F10 for saving settings and press enter.
Now your computer will restart.
If u are getting the same error message, u should replace your hard drive.
If not, try doing a complete system recovery.
Follow the steps to do system recovery.

Power on the netbook and keep tapping Alt+F10.
That will take u in to the recovery mode.
Select complete system recovery.
This process will take around 30 to 45 min and make sure u plug in the AC adapter.
Also note that u will lose all your datas.

Everytime my notebook gets started up it freezes about 45 seconds later

It seems alot of people have had similar issues with these PC's.
Sounds like it could be a virus or registry error. But could also be a hardware error. Does the machine run hot? If so, try cleaning the vents and running it on a hard, flat surface. If that doesn't work I would try running an anti virus and/or anti malware program (in safe mode if that's on option) If that doesn't find anything, then you could try reinstalling the O/S.
Is there a recovery partition on the hard drive?
If none of the above works, then it is probably a hardware issue, hard drive or RAM error, something like that.

I have a sylvania 20'' edtv no tuner or picture from cable

Does the set have any audio/video jacks on the back? Have you tried hooking to those?

If the tuner is bad cable can be hooked via a box or even using a old vcr to the rear jacks===switching to that input and bypass the tv tuner.

It will also tell you if problem is with the tuner.

Let me know if you have questions.

Will not scan for wi fi

Make sure your wifi card is enabled. Most laptops have a switch or function key that will turn the card on or off. If it's active, make sure you have the drivers installed. If you bought your laptop used or just had your OS reinstalled, the drivers may not come with it and will need to be downloaded from Sylvania's website from a computer with a working internet connection.

I have a sylvania notebook, and it runs so slow. It is running off of Internet Explrer 6, I have tried downloading mozailla firefox, google chrome, internet explorer 9, and it wont let me. Everytime I try...

Your netbook doesn't run Windows XP, it uses a cheap version called Windows CE, which is more designed for phones. The reason that you can't install Firefox or Chrome is because Windows CE doesn't support programs designed for Windows XP, Vista, or 7. You can try installing Opera Mini by going to, but there no guarantee that it will work.

I have a sylvania 32 inch tv everytime i turn it on the green light blink then goes back to red


You need to check the output voltages of the power supply to see which one goes off. It may be due to short circuits some where.if otherwise, power supply board is dead, do you know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

Hope this will help in solving the problem...

New TV 9 mos old, Won't stay on after power up? Remote or manual turn on, set keeps turning off after 1-2 second green on and brief screen flash.

I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, your TV should still be under warranty. I know 95% of come with a 1 year warranty.
The most common problem with Sylvania TVs made by FUNAI, the Backlight Inverter board fails to early in life. ( That's the part that powers the screen)
The Tv can't power up the screen and it turns off automatically. Basically called "Protection Mode" so it protects the other parts inside the TV.
