No bootable device, hit any key


The bios cannot find any device it can boot from. This can occur because of hard disk failure, a loose connection or file corruption. There usually is a boot menu that you can get to from the bios by hitting some key specified by your bios manufacturer during the POST bootup process. Usually there is some message on screen like 'press esc for bootup options' or 'press f2 to enter bios setup' or something similar. As your machine starts up, try hitting ESC, F2, F5, F8 or F12 -one at a time-hitting each key several times during bootup (maybe your manual can give you a hint). If you get into the BIOS setup screen, look at the screen that tells you what the BIOS thinks you have attached for storage. If you don't see a hard disk there, you have a definite hardware problem. If you get into a boot option screen, try putting a Windows Installation CD, or a recovery CD from your laptop manufacturer, in the CD-ROM drive of your computer and enabling the machine to boot from the CD-ROM. If the PC boots from the CD-ROM, you may be able to use Windows Recovery mode or your manufacturer's recovery disk to get your hard drive working again. If you have any files you can't live without on your hard drive, look into getting your hard drive out of your laptop and into a USB drive enclosure that you can use another PC to try and read those files from the hard drive prior to attempting any recovery options, as some of them erase all files on your hard drive. Also check to see if your PC has manufacturer diagnostics that you can boot into to check your hardware with before attempting any other type of repairs.

Dell 1150 laptop configuration module problem


Hi, you can perform a system restore by accessing safe mode by pressing the ESC button during bootup. Restore system to a time before the problem began. You will need to perform a full virus scan straight after normal bootup is achieved. Hope this helps

PC keyboard is requiring 5 second pause between double strokes


Seems a driver issue to me.
İf you are using windows operation system than go "my computer" rigt click>properties>Hardware tab.
Click on the "device manager" find the "Keyboards" click on this and you will see the installed keyboard. Uninstall it and reboot the computer. Windows will be register it again with fresh drivers when your operation system is loaded during restart.

PS. If you keyboard has USB connection, plug it off before shut down and plug it on after your system is fully loaded. Wait for the informative pop up messages sayin " new hardware found" etc. You can use it after "your hardware installed and ready for use" message displayed.

KUDI01TJWH0 kitchen aid....the clean light is blinking and wont do anything else....how do we reset or do we just need to take it in for repair?????


To invoke the diagnostic cycle, perform the following key presses in less than 6 seconds while in standby.

Heated Dry -> Normal -> Heated Dry -> Normal

Invoking the diagnostic cycle clears all status and last run information from memory and restores defaults. It also forces the next cycle to be a sensor calibration cycle. (quoted from service diagnostic cycle notes in troubleshooting guide)

Necesito realizar el test de una Laptop Inspiron 8600


My spanish is very poco, but I think you want to start a diagnostics test, and need the combination of keys to start?? That would be the Fn + the Power key. Turn the computer off. Press and HOLD the Fn key, then press and RELEASE the power key. Keep the Fn key down until the screen says that you are starting in the "diagnostics" mode. You will then see prompts to ask if you want to conduct a full diagnostics test or a custom one. If you just want to check one or more parts of the system, choose the custom and select what you want to test. Otherwise a full test will cover all system hardware and will take about an hour.
