Maybe...when you 'run' it from safe mode, can you please run a tuneup(disk clean, defrag)..and also a virus engine check?

Inspiron 1520 error code 0f00:137B or dvdrw_4


Hi,

this is either a faulty dvd drive error message, or you have missing system files on the hard-drive.
The computer is asking you for the ( Media-Software Disk ) that is missing, and is required to start the computer.
Try putting your restore cd, or operating system in the dvd drive when booting the computer.

Does the issue occur in Safe Mode (Press F8 at boot, select safe mode) If not then a program is likely conflicting, run a virus and spyware scan. If the issue does occur in safe mode, try adjusting keyboard settings in COntrol panel

Error code on dell laptop


There are two options you can try:
First boot up and hit F8 to put it in Safe Mode. Then go into your Control Panel>Add/Remove programs and uninstall Service Pack 1. Reboot and see if that works. If not try this:

Boot up into Safe Mode again by hitting F8 when it starts up. Click on Start>Programs>Accessories>System>System Restore (It may be a little diff but that is close). Click on System Restore and walk thru the Wizard, this will restore your computer to an earlier date before you installed Service Pack 1. Good Luck.
