There are three main reasons why the setup gives this error:
Your harddrive crashed or you have an raid array that is not recognized by windows, use the drivers for the raid array, some raid controllers are not recognized by default by windows, you'll need to run those drivers manualy from out the windows setup.
The controller on the motherboard is defective.

Go to the manufacturer of your computer to solve this problem.

When i have install audio driver in lenovo G450 , its showing error " media device not found". Kindly suggest

"Media device not found" most probably you have install the incorrect version drivers for your Audio devices. You have not mention which OS you are using. You have to select & install the correct Audio version for your Operating System eg. XP, Vista, or Win7!!

If you need the drivers ie for OS Windows, you can download @ lenovo Drivers & Download.

Hope it helps.

I have IBM System x3400 server and when im installing the OS it is saying “SETUP DID NOT FOUND ANY HARD DRIVES”


Check your BIOS setting first to make sure the system is registering all devices attached. If you do not see the hard drive in the BIOS, check the cable connections and reboot the system. Once the BIOS 'see' the hard drive, you should be able to install any os that support your hardware configuration.

Good Luck

Computer Won't Recognize Printer

This is a tough one. When you say that "My Device Manager isn't showing up any of my hardware..." does that mean that there are other hardware problems in the device manager? When you plug the printer in, how des it show-up in the device manager (ie: unknown device under HID)? Why did you "... recently reformatted my computer ..."?
