Try to check the size of the hard disk in BIOS.. Tap F2 when the dell logo appears to get into BIOS.. If the size is seen reinsert the Hard disk the issue will be fixed.. Else you need to contact Dell.. If u are in warranty they will provide Hard disk free of cost... Or u may have to get one

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

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
