Disconnect the cmos battery and any power supply connected to unit - wait a few minutes and also push and hold the on button. Then after a few more, put back the battery and the cleared cmos should allow you in without a password.

What's wrong with the hard drive?


Sounds like the HDD has either firmware issues or just faulty.

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

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.

Dell insprion N4010 error code 2000-0146 My computer become very very slow. And windows media also not start.


This usually indicates a hard disk self test failure or impending failure. Before anything I would back up your files.

If under warranty I would call Dell support.

Simple answer I would get the drive replaced.

Dell inspiron 910 operating system not found


Windows seems to be corrupt - vital windows files missing. Load the Operating System CD and see if u can run the system file checker to replace files that are missing.... OR, save data externally and restore the system.

PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F


There are two things that could be a problem. The BIOS settings are corrupted, or the hard drive system has a problem. In order to fix the BIOS problem, at boot up you'd hit F2 (or whatever key is required to enter setup). Get some paper and pencil and go through the BIOS pages and mark down anything that is not a default setting. Find the location to reset the BIOS to default settings and perform this action. This will overwrite your BIOS settings and remove any corrupted data. Now, when you reboot, go back into the setup and set all of the settings to the choices you marked down before.

If this does not fix your problem, your hard drive control system has a problem. It could be as simple as a ribbon cable being loose or as bad as the controller section on the motherboard has gone out. Another possibility is the hard drive has given up and needs to be replaced.

Tomtom go 910


I have seen the green screen problem a few times before and this was caused by corrupted data / software or an error in booting up.
If you can't turn any TomTom off then perform a reset by inserting a paper clip into the rest hole and give 1 short press of the reset button ( it's a tactile switch so you should feel it click ) then try switching the TomTom on again the normal way. ( reset buttons are normally found through a small hole underneath the TomTom ).
If the TomTom does switch on but continues as before with the loading up problem , then it's best to format and reload all files from your backup copy.
A RED CROSS indicated a loading fault / corrupted files / incomplete files / corrupted or damaged media . ( media , meaning SD card or hard-drive )
