At the startup menu i am getting a message that says, Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device."


Firt thing you can check is wthr your harddrive is detected or not. to do that you have to enter to the BIOS,To Enter BIOS you have to press DELET or F1 or F2 key(Mostly DELET). Now inside the BIOS in main menu check if your hard drive is showing or not. If it is showing there then you try to find out boot sequence, option after getting the boot sequence optuon check if the first device is other then hard drive.
if your harddrive is detected and your first boot device is also set to HARD drive then it might that your Operating system is Crash, in that case you need to re install the OS.
Now if you can see your hardrive in your BIOS then you can open the case( remember to unplug all the cable, Power, VGA, KEYboar ...etc) and try to inter change the harddrive cable connting cable, i mean just try to chage the port of the cable to other one and try switch on your computer ... if still you find the same problem then try changing new cable. ....well if still you have the same problem then i am afraid that you might need to replace the hard drive with new one.

Sorry for the Bad Englsih. Hope the above steps will work for you and you understood what i tried to say.
Cheers:)

How do I fix error codes pxe-e61 and pxe-mof


The fix will depend on exactly what is wrong. The messages mean that your computer can't read the hard disc and find a boot OS. The drive may have failed, the cable might be loose, or the MBR (masterboot record) is bad.

First make sure that you do not have a CD/DVD in your optical drive, a floppy in your 3.5" drive or an external hard drive attached to one of the USB ports. (The computer may be trying to boot to one of them.)

Next press F2 when you turn on the computer (press repeatedly). This will let you enter the BIOS to set the disc boot order. (Check that the hard disk is listed first. This also indicates that the computer sees a hard drive in the machine.) If you get the error message again, try the entire procedure again from turning on the computer.

Next try using the appropriate Windows install/update disc to repair your system.(The Dell 4600 came with XP and you need the correct SP on the disc. If you kept up on the updates, it should be SP3.) Put the CD in the optical drive then restart the computer. Press F12 repeatedly to get the boot selection menu. (The same repeat routine may be needed if you miss the timing.) Use this disk to enter the Recovery Console and attempt to repair the Master Boot record.

Use the directions here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/index.htm to check if the cable is connected properly. You will need to open the case.
This Dell came with an IDE hard drive. These often have a jumper that indicates the boot order. The jumper must be set to master or cable select and be attached at the master position on the IDE cable. This is the connection at the very end of the cable. The IDE cable can come loose from the motherboard, as well. You can also try a different cable.

The final option is to replace the hard disc. Unplug the old hard drive from the IDE cable first. You'll need the Windows install disc and then to reinstall all of your drivers and programs. Move the bad disc to the slave position on the IDE cable. See if you can salvage any of your files from the hard drive. (Sometimes, putting the drive in a ziploc bag and placing it in the freezer for several days will let you read the disk when you put it back in the computer.)

I hope this helps.

I have a HP Pavilion Elite m 9357c that willnot boot up. The screen goes black and says Disk Boot Failure,Insert system Disk and press enter


If it happens that you are prompted by the following error message "DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER", "No system disk", it means that the computer did not find the operating system to start (boot).

Causes:


A diskette or CD has remained in the drive

Check out if any diskettes, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM are present in respective drives, remove them and restart your computer

The boot sequence is incorrect BIOS



Enter the BIOS setup of your computer and edit the boot (boot sequence) so that the computer starts primarily on drive C:
A new hard drive was installed

In the case that a new hard drive has been installed, this message is quite normal.
Just insert the correct CD to install the system (usually Windows), then restart, while making sure the CD-ROM is first in the defined in the BIOS setup as first boot sequence.
The hard drive is unplugged

Open the system unit and check that power cable of the hard drive is properly connected.
Corrupted system files

It may happens that some system files needed to boot the computer have been deleted /damaged or that the boot sector of the disc is damaged.

To determine this, start the computer with a system disk or CD-ROM installation of Windows (via the Recovery Console), and once started, type Dir C: to check if the contents of drive C: are accessible. If its ok then the problem comes from missing or damaged files, then you just have to run the command:

fdisk /mbr
sys c:



Note that before any restoration of the boot sector with the command fdisk / mbr, (supposing that there is a virus), it is recommended to use an antivirus running under DOS, such as
f-prot.

Damaged disk

If the hard disk or a partition is damaged:
If it detected in the BIOS setup, there is a chance that it is
not out of service.
If it is, try reinstalling the system through the installation CD, in order to reformat or recover the partition using a utility.
