It sounds like it's trying to boot from a network. Did you change the boot start up in the BIOS? If not then it's trying to boot from the Ethernet port because your hard drive is not being detected or your software is corrupted.

A "media test failure, check cable" means your hard disk failed. The bios can not locate the boot sector of the hard disk to begin loading the operating system.
"Operating system not found" means windows can't load because the Bios can not find the operating system (because the hard disk failed).

This is pretty much an unrecoverable error in terms of fast fixes. You can take the hard disk to a data recovery service if you need to retrieve important data or files.

Error when system is turn on. says it can't load operating system . Biostar mother board. Model MCP6P M2+

Somehow the filesystem got corrupt. It could be the hard drive going out because this is a sign of hardware failure. Sometimes you can temporarily restore it by fixing the MBR (Master Boot Record) using your windows cd, or Linux cd if you have that, just load the disc at boot and enter the Repair section.

Can't reply to txt messages it freezes

The phone may require to have its operating system purged and then reloaded. There may be some corruption in the system. The only other fault that can normally cause this is an intermittent hardware failure. The only way to know for sure is to start by having the operating system and all the software re-loaded as like when the phone was new. Don't add back any other optional non original programs until you established that the phone is working properly.

A common cause of damage to the operating system, is when people load in various non approved programs and utilities. Some of these programs may have errors in their code, and thus cause fault conditions.

We use Blackberries in our facility. When the users start to load in various programs from all over we start to have some very interesting fault conditions. Purging and reloading the complete operating system is usually the fix unless there is a hardware failure.

Hi i am tryning to load an operating system onto my brand new hard drive. It keeps coming up with disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.. what do ido

Hi, By brand new harddrive, I assume that its fresh and empty.
You need to install the Operating System (OS) in that harddrive.
You can do that my inserting the OS installation CD/ DVD into the drive before you bootup.
If you still get the error, get into the setup mode and change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first.
Hope it helps :)

Since the operating system and navigation software are preloaded into the internal flash memory of the GPS, the freezing may either be software or hardware failure. First, press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole, to see if the navigation software can load successfully. If the program still does not load, then the software may be corrupted. Also, if the internal memory fails to read or write and the software cannot load properly, it may be caused by hardware failure. In either case, please return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact us for further assistance.
