Hi OK what you will need to do is either to reinstall youre product or you need to run a repair.... YOu will need youre original operating system key and the cd. if you have it then follow these steps 1--go into bios unther the advance optios there you will need to se the boot options to boot from cd first then save and restart. 2-- insert the cd as soon as the pc comes on. when promted to boot from cd press any key. 3-- wait till everything is loaded...then press enter and after that press f8 4-- ok now you have options to repair iif you want to repair select r if you dont want to repair and istall a fresh copy choose the option dont reapir.(if you choose repair dont follow any more steps) 5-- now you will c youre partition/s choose the one you want to format and follow the commands at bottom of screen.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 910 operating system not found

Windows seems to be corrupt - vital windows files missing. Load the Operating System CD and see if u can run the system file checker to replace files that are missing.... OR, save data externally and restore the system.

Sounds like the HDD has either firmware issues or just faulty.

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

Hello,,, I got a Dell Inspiron 910 Mini Laptop. As I boot it up there is a stop message and a driver comes up. And then NO OPERATING SYSTEM FOUND. What must I do? Help me Please...


would indicate that the operating system is not detected. try to restore or reinstall your OS, if this does not work, try to remove and reconnect the hard drive of the system which I believe is an SSD type. You can also try to run diagnostics by trying FN power button to turn it on or tap F12 when system is restarting and select Diagnostics from the One Time Boot Menu. It is possible that the SSD drive needs to be replaced

Hi. You may need to re-install the Operating System but your netbook doesn't have an Optical drive. Better call Dell Phone Support for help in how to recover system back to factory image.

Hi there!

Try to change the setting of the brightness in BIOS,
You can access bios by pressing f2 after you turn on the computer, then you will see brightness there, max out the brightness.

If it still does not work then go to the power options of your laptop then change the setting of the brightness when the charger is plugged in.

Hope this helps!

Sound is ok i hv mic problem


If you install the correct drivers, the audio device should work fine. That includes the microphone if present. Check your sound recording settings in Vista to make sure all the device selections, recording levels etc. are set okay.
Then try recording with the Vista sound recorder to verify.
