Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Error code 22 usually points to a device that has not been enabled, media failure cable check is where the OS is looking for a boot drive such as a CD rom or hard drive boot record.
In order, try the following
1.) Remove any DVDs and usb devices from the laptop and try to reboot
2.) Under the laptop, there is an inspection hatch for the hard drive, remove and check if there is actually a hard drive installed, make sure it is firmly connected
3.) On boot up, access the Bios (might be F1 or Del or F10) and see if the DVD rom drive and the hard drive are listed in the bios and are set in the Boot order.
4.) If all the above check out, try inserting a Windows installation disc and see if the computer will try to boot from that (dont install windows, just go through the stages untiol it "finds" the drive, see if there is already an OS on the drive
5.) If there is not an OS on the drive, install windows, see if it works ok.
If the above do not work, please repost along with any other codes
