SOURCE: my mini dell inspiration laptop sends me an error

This error comes up if the computer is not able to detect the hard drive. Power off the computer. Power it back on and tap the number 2 key 4 - 5 times at the Dell logo screen. This will take you to the system setp screen. Check if you see any thing listed next to solid state drive. If you dont see any thing try reseating the hard drive. Here are the steps to reseat the hard drive.. If you see an entry next to the solid state drive. You'll need to reinstall windows on the computer. If you have been shipped XP you will need an external CD drive to reinstall windows. If the system was sen with ubantu try to download it to a usb drive and boot off it.
Rate if useful.

SOURCE: PXE-E61:MEDIA TEST FAILURE PXE-M0F:EXITING BROADCOME PXE

hello, sounds like bad hard drive. here is what you can try, go in to BIOS and reset it factory default save and exit, let the system start again go back in BIOS and check to see if you see your hard drive there, also this time disable Boot from Network option. seeif your system actually starts up... or you get "no operating system found", if you saw the HDD in BIOS and get no operating system found, you can try reinstalling windows.
if you still media test failure and it loops, you need a new hard drive.

let me know if it helps...
good luck

SOURCE: I have Dell latitude E5420.

hi

make sure your operating system is updated thoroughly (go to START, WINDOWS UPDATE)
once you have done this go to this link below, download the AUDIO drivers & BIOS driver
once this has been done, go back to the link and download all applicable drivers dated for 2010 or 2011. Once you go through all these drivers, it should resolve UNKNOWN device issue.

download and save all drivers, then execute them one at a time.

hope this helps you ! if so , please send me 4 thumbs up

SOURCE: The sound is not working on my Dell Latitude E5420

click start control panel hardware and sound manage audio devices right click on your speaker select configure speakers

right click on the speaker icon in the bottom taskbar you will see an array of options playback recording sounds and communication select playback devices make sure it has a green tick have a look through all of these make sure all are configured properly


and the correct speakers are selected

be updated if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers

could be on it although once speakers are connected widows 7 should automatically update the drivers


click start control panel hardware and sound manage audio devices playback you might have to set a default go for via high definition audio then right click on speaker


you might have to configure them then select properties you will see tabs general level in this tab make sure your settings are loud enough

also enhancements and advanced from the drop down

list in the advanced tab select dvd quality or another then apply

if this fails to fix the problem take it back to the place of purchase if possible or ring them for some warranty advice

it might be a faulty sound card

it should be under warranty

hope it helps

First ther was a error message, then the pc make nothing.


If you have a spike in the power, unplug, remove the battery, then hold the power button down for 1min or 60s, to release any built up shock power. then insert the battery, (no power cord) push and hold power button for 1 -2 - 3 s. release and see what happens.. now what OS is installed on the HDD. and check the BIOS to see how the boot sequence is set... seems your error show you set to boot to NetWork not HDD
