Error code 2000-0411 Keyboard backlight cable not detected

Q: Error code 2000-0411 Keyboard backlight cable not detected

XPS M1730 internittant problem - machine crashes and will not reboot. Diagnostic error code 2000-0411.
After a couple ot tries it restarts.
Keyboard backlight has not worked for a long time - Fn rt arrow does nothing.
Any ideas? Could be a cable is not seated properly but I'm not anxious to pull the machine appart.

Preferred Solution: Error code 2000-0411 Keyboard backlight cable not detected

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sorry to hear about the troubles. The following link gives details on the basic diagnostics.
The code 2000-0411 means a possible failed hard drive.
I suggest reseating the hard drive. Disconnecting the drive and reconnecting it. Here is a link from the service manual on removing hard drives.
<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>
Once reseated and try diagnostics again. If it gives the same error you will need to replace the drive.

Try a new one and make sure it is installed correctly with printed info visible. If a new cmos battery doesn't work, the motherboard could be defective.

I got the error 0xc000000e when I try to reboot the dell latitude E6400 laptop. The I tried running the ePSA and the test error happened to be 2000-0411. However, when I unplug the battery the screen still is on and laptop continues its so called function.
Before this happened, I connected a HP charger to my battery by mistake and laptop was giving me power outage error due to the wrong adoptor/charger. Before I figured out it was the wrong charger, I had removed the main battery and put it back smoothly. after I noticed it's the wrong charger and connected  the laptop to the right charger, it started charging but again started giving this 2000-0411 error constantly...
I appreciate your help in advance,

The title pretty much sums it up. A few days ago, I googles something, don't remember what, clicked on a normal- looking link, got one of those "Your computer has 151 detected infections" or something like that, immediately backed out then closed Firefox. (it resized the browser window and basically just took control) I knew I was screwed. Three days later, I resume from hibernate, and it froze. It's never even skipped before. (It's a new system: Dell Vostro V13 32b, abt three mos old. ) Tried ctrl/alt/del to no avail, then pushed power button. It immediately turned off w/o typical shut-down sequence. Upon restart, after BIOS, it asked to check cable and offered:

Error code: 2000-0151 incorrect status 32, no additional sense information.

Thank you for any assistance with this issue. Jim

A:W7 Error code 2000-0151 / No OS detected

Hi -

See if you can boot with your Windows 7 DVD and try system repair &/or system restore.

If you are able to then boot into Windows, have your system reviewed by a Security Analyst.
Please follow these steps - http://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html

If you cannot boot into either SAFEMODE or Normal Windows, you will need to reinstall Windows 7.

IN my Dell Inspiron 1520 , whenever I start my laptop I get the message "Internal hard disk drive not found.To resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive.No bootable devices -- strike F1 to retry boot, F2 to set up utility.Press F5 to run on board diagnostics."
 I ran onbiard diagnostics which showed following:error code = 0141msg error code = error code 2000- 0141msg : no drive detectedI also opened the Hard Drive by removing hard drive screws to reseat the drive and put it back again as it was there intially.But when i started my Dell Inspiron 1520 , I get the same message -- "Internal Hard Disk Drive Not Found TO Resolve This Issue, Try TO Reseat The Drive" came.Please help me in this.


Hi, the errorcode speaks for itself, the system can't find the hard drive, i suggest you try plugging it into an desktop system as salve to try and save data, but if it is not found there either you will have to buy a new hard drive/get one on the warranty.

Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

That's what the system said, in DOS, on the black screen. Of course, I had my mouse and keyboard unplugged at the time, because I had just unplugged everything to move the computer.

Anyways, I plugged the keyboard and mouse in, restarted the computer, and everything started normally.

My question is, what is with this error? Vista can't boot up if I don't have a keyboard and mouse plugged in? It's not a big deal, but it seems like very odd behavior.

A:Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

This has nothing to do with Vista whatsoever. As you said it showed up on the black screen with white text, which is the boot screen. The computer hasnt even started loading windows yet. The fatal eror occurs because you have no input device. The computer recognises this, and given that they are important, it puts a warning up that there is no connection.
It is completely normal, really, and whatever OS you have, its going to do the same thing.

Hard drive error code 2000-0146
Dell Inspiron 1525 computer. Screen goes black after Dell logo is shown. Ran diagnostics available when F12 key pressed when Dell Logo appeared. Two error codes came up during diagnostics. 2000-0142 and 2000-0146 "Self test log shows previous errors" Co-incidentally an email had been received with subject line "I enjoyed you in secret video" Others have had problems after this email, yet I can't find any reference to it on the net. It may only be co-incidence.
I tried booting from the installation disk. Screen showed "files loading" bar then went to the next screen with the green progress bar for a few seconds, then black and soon the hard drive ceased any activity. After a few attempts now the boot from the DVD just grinds away. There is hard drive activity but no progress.
I'm thinking bad hard drive but it doesn't seem reasonable. It is only a few months old. Ccleaner is used regularly and there hasn't been any lead up problems.

I can't get my network card to work when plugged into the wall. The computer detects the card and all but I can't get it to detect the lan cable, and the card doesn't light up. At first I thought maybe the cord port was jacked but I was messing around with it and at one point my laptop and the PC/network card were connected and it lit up. Can't get internet that way of course. I can also get it to work from PC to PS3, I can successfully transfer files through FTP.
What's going on?

By the way I'm at a university. There's no modem or router for me to reset or anything like that. And yes the actual cable works, and so does the walljack I'm connecting from, they both work with my laptop. I've tried plugging and unplugging, using different cables, resetting the cmos, doing a system restore point, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, no changes. It's a brand new card, and it never worked.

I mean it would be one thing if it at least detected the cable and the internet didn't work, but for it to detect the cable when plugged into anything except the walljack when I know the walljack works, the cable works, and the network card works to at least some extent... I've never had a problem like this before. I could reinstall Windows 7 but, I dunno, I have a feeling that won't work.

No problems are detected in the device manager. ipconfig /all gives me a media disconnected for everything.

Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

Can you hear the drive spin up ? I can't see why what you have done would affect the drive. You say you have checked the connections. Try going into BIOS and get to the hard drive screen and see if it will detect anything, also ensure you are in AHCI mode and not IDE.

I found an old thread about this here, but my problem is a little different. I only get this error intermittently, maybe once a week. I have a new Dell Studio laptop. I will turn it on as usual but sometimes I get a lot of beeping and the "Error Code 2000-0141 No Drive Detected" message. After I run the onboard diagnostic the computer will boot normally.

Why does the drive fail only intermittently? I thought if it was a bad drive it would always be a bad drive. Or is it that there is some faulty connection? Sending the laptop back will cost me weeks or months without a computer.

A:Dell Error Code 0141 No Drive Detected

The thread you linked to is exactly your same problem. Here are the possibilities:
There is an intermittent drive failure that will eventually become permanent.
There is an intermittent main board failure that will eventually become permanent.
There is a bad connection between the drive and the main board that shows up occasionally (not likely)
You had better back up your data daily to external media because recovering data from a failed hard disk starts at around a thousand dollars and that is for small disks. Turn-around time is usually two weeks or more.

It may or may not be a problem.  That error will show up if you try to run the diagnostics without having a blank, writeable disc in the optical drive.  It has nothing to do with the video subsystem or the BIOS.

Hi Support,
My monitor started showing only horizontal color lines and i don't see anything else on the screen. So, i had to connect to a monitor through HDMI and run diagnostic tests. On running BIST, i got an error with code  2000-0334 with validation # 3211 and msg: Video - User reported the patterns were not displayed. 

Can you please advice on what steps needs to be taken to resolve display issues? I am using Dell INSPIRION N5050

A:Error Code 2000-0334

Do you see these lines every time you turn on the system? Is there any physical damage / liquid spillage on the system? Does the system overheat?
As the HDMI is working fine, I would suspect the LCD at this point, as the graphics card seems to be functional.
Run the LCD bist - Turn off the system and press and hold the "D" key + power button to turn on the system and it should run the LCD built in self test - see this link for more info - http://dell.to/1SkXNrG 
Download the service manual - http://dell.to/1Uzd88M and reseat the LCD cable and check.
If not, the LCD cable and the LCD assembly needs to be replaced.
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Let us know if you have any other queries.

My Laptop(Dell Inspiron N5050) has started to blow regular sound (like a trimmer while trimming). Then I came to know that it is sound of fan then I started Diagnostic at startup by pressing F12 and after checking error code shown as

Plz tell me what exactly is with my laptop and how to resolve it.

A:Error code 2000-0511

It sounds like your fan is going out.  You could use some canned air and while the computer is OFF blow out the heat sink grills and fan area that you can see on the bottom and/or sides of the computer.  If that doesn't work you will have to get it replaced by contacting Dell if you are in warranty and having them take a look at it.  If you are not under warranty then you should take it to a local shop if you have one.

Hey guys.

A:Error Code 2000-0142

You'll need to initiate a warranty transfer first - that will require the purchase of a warranty upgrade if you have only a standard warranty now.  
Only if you have onsite service can you transfer the warranty to Japan -- and also only if that model is sold in Japan.

Screen showed "files loading" bar then went to the next screen with the green progress bar for a few minutes, then continued to the screen which you can repair windows or install fresh. During this process the DVD just grinds away. There is hard drive activity which also causes a grinding sound occasionally. if i choose repair windows it shows an empty box from which i can load drivers or continue on to the system recovering tools screen which dont work as it states no hardware detectable, but if i choose the instal windows option i can only get as far as the scan for drivers screen as no drivers are found on the system or boot drive.
I'm thinking bad hard drive but really not sure.
Any ideas? please help if i get a new hard drive will it be detectable?

I'm new to Techspot. I wanted to get into a forum to try and solve an issue with my computer. The computer is a dell inspiron 1525, with vista, and receives the following message on startup, "internal hard disk drive not found."

A:Need help with error code 2000-0141

The usual cause is that the hard drive has gone bad... But you may just need to re-order your BIOS?
Have your tried borrowing another drive just to see if it is detected?
That computer can be about 2 1/2 years old... long enough for a drive to go bad...
But if you have valuable data on it, you don't want to mess with it too much... just because it doesn't boot, or is not detected, doesn't mean you cannot access it later to retrieve the data... because usually you can.
It can be a lot of other problems as well, so tell us more about your system and what you were in the middle of?

Had this same problem on Inspiron 1545.  Just wanted add what I did that seems to have solved the problem, I'll let u know if it stops working again.  Will be posting this elsewhere as well.
Got started on this link: 
I booted off the dell OS disk by pressing f12 at startup and selecting CD-rom/DVD. 
After files load, Click repair OS instead of Install. 
Click Command Prompt.  Type C:\   Hit Enter
Type in chkdsk     Hit Enter
After chkdsk runs, If you have the same problem I did, it will say unable to repair in read-only mode.
on C:\, Type chkdsk/r
It will prompt you that all handles will be invalid, type y and press enter.
chkdsk fixed my problem, Reboot by typing exit and press enter.  
Start Windows Normally.
Hope this helps, def post again if it happens again.

It has Vista ultimate on it.
We have tryed "reseating" the drive a couple of times and the tests still say no hard drive detected.

error code 0141
Msg error code 2000-0141

He has not made any backups of his data, also he has not made any backup recovery discs

OK the data maybe lost, but what about windows, how does that get put back on a new hard drive if your laptop had the OS preinstalled.

Or is the best option is to take it to a computer repair shop and maybe they can transfer all the data and the OS to a new hard drive....
I just like to know how this works, its not for me , this happened to my mate next door.

Just to clarify
Hard drive looks if it has failed
The OS was preinstalled
No backups of any type


I have done a couple of searches and this does not mean to say it is the actuall hard drive thats failed, as some people have bought new hard drives and are still getting the same message.

Could this also mean a motherboard or controller problem.....

Hi all,

Having issues with a ASUS H81M-C motherboard which shows no signal detected on boot.


no error bleeps on boot
no signal detected on screen
cannot access bios
reset CMOS - no success
moved all parts over to gigabyte mobo and all works well.
removed RAM from board and booted but no error codes from this either??

Whats frustrating is that I returned the mobo to the buyer who tested and showed as working correctly.??

Im thinking it maybe a RAM issue?
Does anyone have more experience with the ASUS mobos? Are they funny on RAM types/spec (checked QVL and Corsair RAM that i have picked is not showing)

I knew i should have stayed with Gigabyte

any thoughts/comments welcomed

thanks for viewing

A:Asus h81m-c - no signal detected / no bleep error code

Due to a power surge, I had to replace the motherboard on my old optiplex 3010. After installing the new motherboard I tried to boot the computer, but I get the error code 2000-0511. I ran the diagnostic and the motherboard fan does not check out. The system won't let me get past this stage. Any suggestions?

A:Error code 2000-0511 (109066)

Reseat the CPU fan and check again.
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/28uYidk - restart and check again.
If you are unable to boot into windows, then try flashing the BIOS through DOS:

Create a bootable USB - http://bit.ly/1mmhOE1 
Copy the BIOS and update - http://dell.to/1NyXDjK 

If the issue is not resolved, then I would suggest the fan to be replaced.
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Couple of month ago my laptop warrenty expired. Today I get disk repairing error on boot.
On diagnostic, Hard Drie 0 - DST Short test failed with error code 2000 - 0142 Validation : 129532.
Please suggest me how do I get replacement of this harddisk/Warrenty. As per my understanding samsung harddisk has 5yrs warrenty. So please help me on this.
Thanks and regards,

A:Error code : 2000 - 0142 on diagnostic

If you purchased the drive at retail with a 5-year Samsung/Seagate warranty, contact them for replacement.
If the drive shipped in the system from Dell, it's an OEM drive - the warranty on the drive is the system warranty, meaning that if the system warranty has expired, so has the warranty on the drive.  Drives shipped by Seagate, WD and Toshiba to OEMs carry no warranty to end users -- only drives purchased separately through retail channels do.

Hi everyone.
I've been working on a Dell that had the ransomware virus on it. I ran Sophos (bootable) to stop the virus, because the computer had crashed and is calling for a set-up disc.
Much of the virus was removed, but the operating system won't load. Part of the error code reads like this: windows\system32\c_1252.nls is either corrupt or missing.
One unusual thing is that the Dell site has this machine listed as having XP, while the machine itself has a Vista sticker on it.
The Dell was given to me, I'd really like to get it running, if any one can help!
The Dell error code is 2000-0146. I don't have set-up discs.

A:Dell error code 2000-0146

If you don't want to keep the data see if you can access the recovery partition. On bootup press Ctrl  + F11, see if that gives you the option to restore to factory settings.
