I have a TomTom Go 910 and I had the same problem. I thought the problem was with the GO 910 but it turned out to be with the computer instead. The GO 910 seems to corrupt the USB driver files on the computer over a period of time when you connect it to your computer to update it or for whatever reason you connect to your computer. To repair the USB driver files on the computer, right click on My Computer and in the menu that opens up select Manage. In the Computer Management window that opens up select Device Manager from the left side of the Computer management window. Then in the right lower side of the window (you might have to scroll down) you will see Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Click the + sign to expand the Bus Controllers. Start at the bottom of the longer lines that you see and right click on it. In the selection that opens up left click on uninstall. Starting from first of the longest lines at the bottom, uninstall all of the USB drivers. Sometimes they will reinstall themselves before you can get them all uninstalled, but if you keep at it you will be able to get them all uninstalled and then restart your computer. When the computer restarts you will see messages that the computer has found new hardware. Then after the computer is on for a few minutes you will see messages that your new hardware is installed and ready to use. If the USB driver files were corrupted this will reinstall them with the correct drivers and you can connect your TomTom to Update it or for whatever reason. Also when you do this make sure that you don't have any USB devices connected to your computer until you are done, then you can connect your TomTom.

Master hard disc..Message stating that Windows has detected a problem.


Back up your files immediately to prevent information loss, and then contact the computer manufacturer to determine if you need to repair or replace the disk.


+ Start the backup process


* Ask me again later


If the disk fails before the next warning, you could lose all of the programs and documents on the disk.

Immediate steps
Because a disk failure will cause you to lose all programs, files and documents on the disk, you should back up your important information immediately. Try not to use your computer until you have repaired or replaced the hard disk.

Mac cant find the hard drive


Clicking Hard drive When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Operating system not found


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Its time you backup your data and contact Dell to get your hard drive replaced (in case your computer is in warranty) else order for a new hard drive compatible with your computer.

You will need your Windows CD that came with your computer, if you did not get it contact Dell about the same.

My 910 won't pick up a GPS signal - any suggestions please?


Backup the Tomtom to your computer. !!!!!!!!
Format the Tomtom hard disk
Logon to Tomtom home and carry out an update
When it has completely finished updating copy the map directory back onto the root of your Tomtom hard disk.

This action forces the Tomtom home site to completely update the program on your Tomtom to the latest applicable application.
This may involve updating the the bootloader as well as the Navcore software.
The maps will go straight back on ok as they should already have been initialised for that device.

Most new Navcores now incorporate the Quickfix which enables the sattelite signal to lock on quicker.
Regular visits to the Tomtom home website will update the quickfix data which really needs to be done weekly as the data expires.

Pressing the reset button also renders the old Quickfix data useless.

If the above does not work then I suggest that you have a hardware problem which would require a professional repair.

Tom Tom is freezing


Hi, If you have a backup of the files ( either on your SD card or on some models like the 910 , the internal hard drive ) you can try formatting the media then copying the backup files over onto it. It's likely that files / data is corrupted on the SD card / hard drive and that is why your tomtom freezes. Anyone reading this , Backup your TomTom SD card or its hardrive to your PC , do it now as it can save a lot of pain later. if you don't have a backup already , try and make one now . it's also possible your SD card has become faulty but if you can get the files off it onto your PC then you have a chance of copying them over to a good card in order to cure your problem . If it's not a fault with the SD card then at least you have a copy of the files , meaning you can't make things any worse than they already are. Good luck.
