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.)

Please run the Diagnostic tool to check hardware on the system by following steps below:
1. Power off system
2. Power on system, quickly tap the F12 key continuously until you see Preparing one time boot menu in the top right corner of the screen. In the boot menu, stroll down to Diagnostic and then click it. After quick tests, click on Hard Drive and then Thorough Test Mode. Report back any error code.

Hi guys,
I recently purchased a 1TB SanDisk SSD for my Inspiron 5559. After removing my old hard drive and replacing it with my SSD, I decided to do a clean install of Windows 10 from a USB drive. F12 boot options didn't seem to be working so I entered BIOS setup and disabled secure boot. After that I was able to select my USB drive as my boot device and install Windows 10. During setup (as is normal of course) the computer rebooted a few times. Each time I got a SupportAssist screen saying that no bootable drives were found. I managed to bypass this by pressing F12 before SupportAssist came up and selecting the HDD as the boot device. This allowed me to fully install Windows 10, however, this problem still persists and the only way for me to boot Windows is to manually specify HDD from F12 boot options every time.
I've done some searching online about this, but most people can't access their OS when they get the "no bootable drives detected" error. I tried resetting the BIOS to defaults (which renders the F12 boot option useless), enabling/disabling secure boot, legacy roms, legacy boot, the list goes on. I tried updating my drivers using Dell System Detect and it found 3 new drivers to install (wireless card, intel rapid storage, and chipset), and I tried marking my OS partition as "active" in Windows disk manager...those didn't work either.
Any ideas?

A:Dell - Bios - A06 - No bootable devices found.... please help any on

Can't do much without knowing what model you have, but if it's a new Skylake (6th generation) or newer CPU, Microsoft removed the ability to install WIndows 7 without some major surgery to the operating system install media.
If that's the case, see here:

Note: if this is a very new Kaby Lake (7th generation) system, that CPU platform will run nothing older than WIndows 10 -- there is no support for Windows 7 at all on it

Hi, I've recently updated my BIOS (from 1.19 to 1.2) and immediately started to have troubles with RST. I have 9550 version with 1TB + 32GB cache, which was shown as "disabled". So I tried to reset BIOS settings to get laptop's performance back, but ended up with SupportAssist screen with the "No bootable devices found." warning.
I can access BIOS, but It won't boot into the W10 that I've installed.
Is there a way how to fix this from BIOS/RST settings? I'm quite lost and also afraid that I might delete my data, any help would be very appreciated!

Thank you. 

A:Dell 9550 "No bootable devices found."

I like to suggest you check if the hard drive is detected in BIOS. Please follow steps below:
1. Turn off computer
2. Power off computer, quickly tap the F2 key continuously. You should be in the BIOS
In the BIOS, the hard drive should be listed under the main screen , look for Fixed HDD.  If the hard drive isn't listed in BIOS, reset BIOS defaults. Press F9 to load defaults and F10 to Save and Exit. Please reseat the hard drive, hopefully the computer boot normally.

I have a Precision t7600 with A12 BIOS.  Asus hyper PCIe card installed with SM951 M.2 NVME SSD.

I physically disconnect mechanical SATA drives, from the system.

Hello, we have a dell 3510 laptop that no matter what we tried we were unable to install the Windows 7 64 bit enterprise edition. I worked with Dell on this and even they could not get it to work., We switched the BIOS from UEFI to Legacy and switched the RAIDon to AHCP and there was the third thing which I have a hard time recalling, I think it was boot off of CD, and the setting was set correctly. We spent hours trying to do this to no avail. I tried the DVD and USB, at one point it looked as if it was going to install the O/S but we got a box that came up asking us to search for Drivers, I was able to see the 'C" drive and the "X"
It asked to Load driver, but no matter what we tried, it did not work. Below is as far as I was able to get. I even ran the F6 Driver Utility and still it was a no-go.
I had another PC to try it with but when I switched from UEFI to Legacy it was as if there was no OS at all and I had to switch it back.

A:We have a Dell Precision 3510 Laptop and no matter what was done we could not install an O/S from DVD or USB.

There's no way this was done remotely -- it requires too much manual intervention.  I suggest you start by following the process above (or use the image linked below, but it's not going to be 7 Enterprise, but Pro).

Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then test the system with the adapter only / battery only.
Restart the system and press f2 on startup to enter BIOS - check if the HDD is detected in BIOS.
Check for the first boot device set.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
If the HDD is not detected in BIOS - http://dell.to/1n3X2po  - enter the service tag and download the service manual and reseat the HDD and check.

Go into setup (F2 at powerup) and make sure your system is set to UEFI mode with secure boot turned ON (not legacy mode, or secure boot off).  Some BIOS updates will change those settings, resulting in an unbootable system.

When I was using my laptop (it was working perfectly a few hours ago) it?s battery was low enough that a screen in SupportAssist said that the battery was critically low so when I tried to reboot after letting it charge for a bit, it kept wanting to do a RAM test and when it would finish, I would hit Esc so it would reboot. I would end up getting to that screen yet again so this time I just rebooted and sure enough, I was back st that screen yet again.

I'll start this off by saying I know very little about computers.

My dell inspiron laptop got stepped on the other day. When I opened it up i noticed the screen badly cracked, and the following message appeared:

Internalt for multi core processors will be disabled.

No bootable devices--strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility. press f5 to run onboard diagnostics.

Upon first trying to run onboard diagnostics, it would work well for about ten minutes, tell me they had discovered no issues, but then ask if i wanted it to keep checking farther. After checking farther, the process would run for hours without yielding a conclusion.

After hearing that wasn't a good sign, I tried to install an old version of windows xp. It seemed like it was reading the disk, and after about five minutes it informed me it was going to try to start running windows. Then a message came up on the screen reading:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

From people who I have talked to, it seems like the laptop is beyond repair. I was just wondering if anyone could confirm this, or offer any other suggestions.

So the main reason why I'm writing this thread is because I'm pretty fed up. I've purchased this $2000 laptop at the beginning of this year because of all the rave reviews. Throughout the first 4 months, i've had to deal with freezing issues where my laptop would freeze after 2-3 hours and I had to force shutdown. It took them 4 months to fix this issue.
Now yesterday when I tried to boot up my laptop, I got this message "No bootable device found" after the Dell logo. I've searched through the forums thinking that I'd find a solution, but none of them worked. I came across a thread in reddit saying that I had to re-add the windows boot manager.

Guys,
Last year, I decided to splurge on a new laptop ahhh my Dell is a beauty!
Last week, I turned it on and it said,"SupportAssist is running a scan to detect potential harware problems." I really didn't think anything of it but then I got the following message."No bootable device found."
For days I have researched to find a solution but I only found outdated post. I feel like I've tried wverything and can not solve the issuse maybe I am doing something wrong???
I have been changin my my boot mode multiple times.
When I change it to UEFI I get the following message, "Hardware scan complete with no isssues. No bootable device found! Possible causes could be a corrupt OS image or a boot device is not enabled fo BIOS Set up"
When I change it to Legacy it says, "Hardware scan complete with no issues."Then when I restart it....it goes on a constant loop of, "No bootable device found please press a key..."
I have also run the diagnostics and it says everything in my system is fine. I don't think it's a virus because I use my Kaspersky religiously lol.
I also found recent post on here where people where dealing with the same issue with the Inspiron models.

Hi, I've had my current PC for a few years now and in that time I've done a fresh installation of Win7 several times always via USB. Today I inserted my trusty flash drive, set it as priority device in BIOS and after pressing "any key to boot from USB" I get hit with "A disk read error occurred". This has never happened before and I'm using the same 8GB flash drive I've always used.

I've spent the entire day reading threads on here and other forums and am absolutely stuck. Here's what I have done thus far:

- Tried the flash drive in every available USB port

- Created a new ISO from my original win7 disc and put it on USB using different methods (Rufus, WinToUSB, wintobootic and even just using the classic CMD)

- Tested the flash drive on 2 other computers, both of which were able to boot and load the Windows installer without issue

- Tried several other flash drives, all gave the same error but worked fine on the other computers

- Tested a flash drive with Ubuntu which worked fine so I know I'm not unable to boot from USB full stop

- Looked around BIOS to change things people have suggested but none of the options like disabling secure boot appear for me. This really shouldn't be an issue anyway as it's always worked before.

Now, there have been 2 very odd things happen. Firstly, after trying for hours and hours I unplugged the hard drive I had in there (sata) and replaced it with a brand new one (ssd). When I pressed a key to boot I didn't get a... Read more

I just bought Dell XPS 13 couple days ago. I had a problem with backup and recovery which showing exclamation mark most time. I tried to download and uninstall it many times even factory reset it. This morning, when I turn it on, the system says that no bootable device found. What happen to my new laptop. Please show me how to fix it. Moreover, let me know how to remove exclamation mark because it is so annoying

A:No bootable device found on my brand new Dell XPS 13 (9343)

Hello,
Here is a link to the Dell troubleshooting article for No BOOT issues.  That would be the first thing i would recommend reading as it has steps you can try to get your system to boot up again.  
You said you couldn't download the backup software.  Are you, or were you, able to get onto the internet and download other items?  Just want to confirm it's not an issue with network connection.
If none of the steps in the article above help then you may want to contact your local Dell Tech Support and ask them for help.   You can go to Dell Support Pages to find contact information for Dell Support.
Try out the No BOOT document and see if that helps. Please let us know what you try and if you succeed in resolving the issue.  If not, I'll see what else we can find to try.

Press F2 at powerup, go into setup and turn secure book OFF.  That should let you boot the system.
What changes preceded the appearance of this error message?

My precision 3510 (i7-6700HQ, 512GB SSD,  16GB, AMD ATI Firepro w5130m) is heating. In idle CPU temp around 70-80 celsius and GPU 85 celsius. On load it is up to 90 - 97 celsius degree . When i contacted with Dell support, they told me that by the their policy 102 celsius degree is overheating, so they do not think that i had a problem. But anyway i carried to autorized service for diagnostic. They found that heat sink - is not working correcty and thermal paste dry, so they changed heat sink and applied new thermal paste. Yes, now it is a little bit better, but anyway it is now, on idle 60-70 celsius degree and GPU 70 celsius degree and now i also has some problems with touchpad, it is freeze while i using it. Again i carried it to the service and the engineer told me that they will diagnose the problem with the touchpad, but about the overheating he is said that it is normal operation temperature for these laptop and dell engineers says that just 102 celsius degree is overheating, But i am sure it is not, because i used these laptop for 1 year and i did not have such issue. Also i am have more that 10 year experience with the mobile workstations. I understand that on load temperature can increase up to 70-85 celsiuse degree, may be a little more. But not on idle 60-70 celsius degree. Does anybody have same issue with such configuration? Is it really normal operation temp for these latpop? What can be wrong with it?

I have been having problems with my XPS 15 which original came with a 1tb hdd and a 32gb ssd. I recently replaced the hard drive with a 2.5 inch sata ssd and removed the on board m.2 and installed Windows to it and it was giving me frequent blue screens and drive was not being detected until I restarted until one day it would boot.
The drives suddenly stopped being recognised in the Bios whenever I am in ahci mode.
When I switch over to 'raid on' the drive suddenly show as a boot able partition
My windows installation was done in ahci
When I try and boot it gives me white text 'f1 to return to boot menu' ect. And it doesn't boot.
My device passes the dell diagnostic test and all drives and os boot path are shown working
My SSD is working fine when I place it in another computer.
My windows install doesn't look corrupted. All partitions and boot files look good
Nothing will boot in AHCI mode not even a windows usb
I am at a loss and really need this computer to work preferably without reinstalling windows

If I understand correctly, you currently have just the 2.5 inch SATA SSD in your system.  You installed Windows to that while the SATA controller was set to AHCI.  Did you do a clean install of Windows or use an image for the original configuration?  That should have worked as long as you are not trying to reconfigure the Cache drive using the Intel Utility.
Whenever you change the SATA controller type, make sure and use the msconfig.exe procedure to set the system to boot back into SAFE mode after you change it.  If you need help with that, let us know.
If it works normally in RAID mode then it looks like you need to leave it there.  That mode basically sets the M.2 slot to run as SATA so they could set up the pre-cache drive (32 GB) to use the Intel Utility to accelerate the HDD.
If you get a chance, take a picture of your Disk Management window using the snipping tool and attach while in Rich Text mode for your reply.  I normally limit the size of the media to 250-300 since the default 550 can get very large.

I ordered the Precision 3510 laptop with the Intel® Core™ Xeon E3-1505M v5. When I was configuring this laptop, it says that ECC memory is required and choosing a non-ECC memory makes a message pop up saying the selected memory is incompatible with the processor.
For saving money, I ordered this laptop with 8GB of ECC memory (4GB X2) as configured from Dell. Then, I ordered this RAM kit from Crucial to upgrade the laptop: 
Installing both Crucial memory sticks (replacing the 2 OEM 4gb sticks) results in the computer booting up with amber blinking pattern 2,5 indicating invalid memory installed. See page 62 of the owner's manual: 

However, booting with just one stick of 16GB memory does not result in any problems and the system is able to post and load into the OS, which recognizes 16GB installed.
I am aware that the Crucial memory I purchased is 2400Mhz and the configurations from Dell for this laptop only list 2133 Mhz RAM. This does not seem to be an issue though considering the laptop is able to boot up with 16GB of 2400Mhz ECC just fine. Furthermore, this system is capable of handling 32GB according to the owner's manual and memory configuration options from Dell's ordering site: 

Please advise on how to allow this machine to boot with two sticks of 16GB 2400Mhz ECC. If this is not possible, would this memory kit be compatible with this machine with the selected processor mentioned above? It is 2133Mhz, but non-ECC.

I have had many issues with this comupter, but my Dell Inspirton 1545 had started to read "no bootable devices" and wouldn't start at all. Now, after buying and installing a brand new harddrive, it reads it again, but only SOMETIMES!

When it gives me options of rebooting or running a diagnostics test, if I switch some stuff around or restart it, or even just leave it alone for a little while, I can start it and it works fine. Except after a short while of using it, it will malfunction and go to "no bootable devices" page again. Tech support says that the hard drive may not be connected properly, but I don't know what to do!
 

A:Dell Inspiron says "no bootable devices" with brand new hard drive

Probably a silly question, but is anything on the hard drive, like an O.S.? Has the "new" hard drive already been formatted? I'm only asking for sometimes some of my clients will go behind my back and install things like hard drives on their own and try to load an O.S. on them, failing to go through the formatting process, and they in the end either through frustration or embarrassment wind up calling me to drive to their house and fix their problem, like installing the O.S. properly.

Also checking your connections might not hurt, just make sure everything is fitting nice and snug and connected the right way.

(This was just me kind of thinking out loud for you.)
