MSI hard drive a6200 462US not working

Every time I turn on the laptop it automatically goes to Boot Manager and when I try to press Tab or Esc or Delete it does nothing. I've tried taking the battery out and holding the power key for 60 seconds, and I turned the laptop on again and it did the same thing. There is no water damage, and I've had this laptop for about 2 years now.

SOURCE: Another "Won't Boot"

My guess is a faulty processor.  I had to replace my motherboard a while back.  Yesterday I was really proud because I got the machine up and running, proving, I thought, that I had successfully took it apart and put it back together.  It had been out of commission for a while, so when I shut it down, it asked if I wanted to do windows xp auto updates.

This morning I got the exact same issue you have, so I opened her back up and noticed that I forgot to plug the CPU fan back into it's socket.  So much for feeling awesome.

My guess is that while doing updates it overheated and died, but I didn't notice because I stopped paying attn to it because it was turning itself off.  I don't think it's a Windows thing because when I try to put a boot cd into the computer, it still won't read.

Dunno what to say...  I'll definitely post back here after I replace the cpu to see if I find an answer.

SOURCE: Blinking Lights, Computer Wont Boot

If it's blinking 9 times then it's likely telling you one or more of the RAM sticks are in need of replacement. To check these, remove the laptops power cord and battery, then locate and remove, the cover for the RAM. Remove one chip at a time and try booting the laptop.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 700m blank screen or won't boot

The problem you are facing sounds like either a video board problem, which I believe the 700 is hard solered onto the motherboard or an inverter board. The best way to test this is to hook up an external monitor to your laptop and see if the problem persists. If the problem does not appear on an external monitor, then the problem is most likely the inverter board in your laptop. If you are still having the problem with an external monitor, then your video card is at fault. The video card on this series I believe is hard soldered to the motherboard and cannot be replaced without changing out the motherboard. If the problem goes away with an external monitor then you just have to replace the inverter board on your laptop which you can pickup on eBay for around 30.00 + shipping.

How do I return my msi wind u180 to factory settings


Use the recovery partition on your MSI laptop to recover its original factory settings. Recovering your MSI laptop to its original factory settings will resolve problems with instability that you may be experiencing as a result of missing system files that were accidentally deleted. Recovering your MSI laptop to its original factory settings will also completely remove any viruses on your computer's hard drive that you were unable to remove with anti-virus software. Fortunately, you can wipe all of the information off your laptop's hard drive and start with a clean slate.


Instructions
  • 1
Turn on or restart your laptop. Press "F3" repeatedly when the MSI logo appears on the screen during the boot process to be redirected to the "Windows Boot Manager."
  • 2
Highlight "Windows Setup [EMS Enabled]" using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Press "Enter" to access the recovery partition on the hard drive of the MSI laptop. The "System Recovery Option" dialog box will appear on the screen. Click "MSI Recovery Manager." Click "OK" when a message appears on the screen notifying you that your computer will be restored to its original factory settings.
  • 3
Click "OK" when a message appears notifying you that the hard drive will be formatted to begin the recovery process. A dialog box with a status bar will appear to indicate how much time is left in the recovery process. Depending on the size of your hard drive as well as how much personal data needs to be erased, the recovery process could take up to 45 minutes.
  • 4
Click "OK" when a dialog box appears on the screen indicating that the recovery process is complete. Your laptop will automatically restart and boot up to the Windows setup screen, where you can begin personalizing the settings for your Windows operating system.

I was told press F2 simultaneously on startup, nothing happened


You need not to press F2 or tab or escape unless you need to do so. If your system is ok, it'll automatically boot up, but if there's boot up problem with your system, then that's different. Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot detect hard drive when I turned on Dell


It's not dead or infected!! When the laptop turns on, press F2 this gets you into bios. Go to "Boot Sequence" If "Hard Drive" is listed there, then your hdd's dead! if not, go down until you highlight your hard drive. Mine says: HDD:C press space. it should now have a number next to it. Press "Space" on all the other numbers until your hard drive says: 1.HDD:C or whatever your harddrive says! press "Esc" and press save. now your hard drive should work. This might work for your laptop if your bios is "A011"
