I contacted Garmin and I was given the following sequence to recover from this condition:

1. Power off the unit.

2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).

3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from the above problem.

Apparently this sequence will only work with the above error. I hope this assists other if they encounter this problem.Thanks for using FixYa

Dell 1501 vios2.6.2. reads missing operation system..then after 18 seconds it shutdown..pls..help... anybody has many opinion to fix it i appriciate it very much. tnks..


Missing operating system errors generally indicate a hard drive read failure. This could be for several causes.
  1. Hard drive failure (Run diags on the drive, if you get an error code, then time to replace)
  2. Software corruption (Too many possible causes to list
  3. Virus

So run Diags Fn+ Power, see if HDD passes diags, if it does, then boot to your windows CD and go to recovery console in XP, (Repair My Computer in Vista/7) in recovery console, run the command CHKDSK /R
If that doesn't resolve, then try a repair install of windows;

System software missing garmin 250w


If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.

ITunes registry error/CD-DVD not being recognized


I had the same problem with iTunes and installing the GEAR driver fixed it. If the drive itself is disappearing then the problem is probably more than iTunes. Try updating the actual CD driver at the Dell Support Page then install the GEAR driver again.

Missing


well check ur hardrive in slave to an other system and then see if it show the missing partion then copy the data and format it.

if it wont then use partion software to check it like partion magic.
may be your system changed the partion to RAW format i mean UNPARTITIONED space due to improper shutdown.
