Dell system detection error

Question: Dell system detection error

At the risk of probably repeating this question..Why won`t the Dell system detect program run?? Get this error message.

Preferred Solution: Dell system detection error

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I just saw the new Client System Update utility for my E6500, downloaded, and installed it on Win7 x64. I've been talking about Dell creating such a util for years and finally Dell did.
However, it does not work. After I press the Check for updates button, after a bit it comes back with "Check for updates failed" and the GUI-U15 error in the logs. I tried many times, including after a reboot. Also, the app just disappears (probably crashes silently) when I go to Advanced->system details.
Any ideas? I was excited to spread the word around about it but can't as it doesn't work at all.

I was using my laptop at work last week when out of the blue it suddenly refused to detect any Wi-Fi signals. I initially thought my hotspot had given out but that wasn't the issue. At this point I can only get online by connecting my laptop with an Ethernet cord. Can anyone please help? According to what I can tell, my wireless connection is up, just not detecting any networks.

I'm still using my Dell Dimension 8300; with Win7Pro32bit and four 6TB hard drives.
Years ago I found that only when cold booting the PC I often needed to Ctrl-Alt-Del at the BIOS (so I'm in the habit of pressing F12 after the power button so I can Ctrl-Alt-Del at the boot menu).
In a thread here I can't find, I was advised to change the CMOS battery (which I now do more often than I need to); this didn't help.
At some point I stumbled upon another trick, while trying to solve a new issue (which may have coincided with my use of very large HDDs) with newly added SATA HDDs being recognized by the BIOS but not Win7.
I'm not talking about Alt-E, Alt-F ("IDE Drive Detection") in BIOS setup; I've always known that I need to do that every time I add/remove an internal SATA HDD.
My newest trick is that I often find a simple "IDE Drive Detection" is not enough. Unless I do it first WITH ALL SATA CONNECTORS DISCONNECTED FROM DRIVES. And only then do it again with all SATA connectors connected. Only thus can all my internal HDDs (on SATA connectors directly, and from PCI SATA cards) be seen by Win7.
Usually it's when I add a 10-year old HDD to the existing drives (this drive passes both CHKDSK and HDD diagnostics).

Answer:Dell Dimension 8300 & IDE Drive Detection

Advanced format drives (older than 2011 and larger than 120GIGS)  require AHCI F6 drivers aka INTEL RST

Hey All

I have a Dell XPS M1210 Win Xp system and yesterday when I turned on the laptop I recieved an error message reading "No bootable devices." when I seen that I automatically thought that it was my hard drive that had the problem. So, I ran the onboard diagnostics and everything that it was testing passed except for the Hard Drive which failed.

Before I proceed to buy a new HD i would like to know if there is something I could do because I have so much info on my computer that I need and I can't afford to lose any of them.

A similar problem happened a while back but it was not with the hard drive so I had to restore my laptop and I did lose everything.

So, if anyone could help me that would be great.
I don't recall downloading anything that would cause the laptop to act up.

The DVD Rom/CD writer drive was failing to read many discs so I took the bare drive out of a Toshiba laptop, put it in the Dell sleeve and it works. Not tested the CD burning though. Both old and new are Sony drives of similar 2003/4 age with different model numbers. DW-D56A-DS for the original one, I think. But when I boot the BIOS fails to recognise the drive and it wonít boot. Pulling the drive out whilst booting solves it.

Is there any way round this BIOS problem as the connector may wear out with this much disconnection? How can I tell what drives might work? I could buy a new £20 bare drive of a similar model. The Dell one with sleeve is 5 times the price, which is more than the laptop is worth.

Several second hand ones are for sale on eBay but I am reluctant as I read that some Dell models like this one were unreliable, so a second hand one will last a short time if it works at all.

Alternative might be just to replace the laser but are they available and can they be changed without going though a complex setup/calibration routine?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 510m DVD drive failed. BIOS detection

By trial and error with old DVD drives I had I found that a Sony SBW 242U from a Sony Vaio laptop is recognized by the BIOS. So there is presumably a narrow range of models that the BIOS will recognize.

But the tray bezel is slightly different so you canít swap over the bezels. Instead, if you want to retain the original drive eject lever, you have to file off some plastic from the new bezel. Check also itís not binding with the laptop case on one edge of the bezel. File as necessary.

Hi, I apologize if this post has been posted before but only thing I could find was a thread of someone who had a similar problem but solved it somehow, randomly.

This is an *ancient* laptop...but it's been working perfectly the past lengthy years. Just recently, however, the wireless network does not work. It detects them so it's not that part of the wireless but for some reason, it will not connect.

With the cable, I can access the internet fine but won't work for the wireless

I'm not a tech-oriented person at all so I will most likely need step by step instructions and my jargon won't be accurate at all. Again, I apologize (especially if this is in the wrong forum!)

Thank you

i had a similar problem with an advent laptop that was given to me to fix, i tried all sorts of things but couldnt get it to connect to my home network (which is secured with a WPA PSK key), the strange thing is it will connect to a non secure network without a problem.

So try and see if it will connect to a network that has the security turned off.

Good day everyone. I am fairly new to this website, but after searching for similar problems like mine, I ran across this.

I recently took the components of my Dell Inspiron 620 and moved it into a Raidmax Super Viper. It came with a 500 watt power supply and after getting it all hooked up and powered up, it gives me a system fan error. The code specifically is 2000-0511. I am wondering if this is being caused by the system fan functioning differently with the added power (going from a 300 watt to a 500 watt) and the motherboard isn't reading it correctly. All the fans work and my computer functions properly, aside from the error message that I can bypass. So I was wondering if I would need to change my motherboard and if I should stop using my desktop until then.

Answer:Solved: Dell Inspiron 620 System Fan Error

It shouldn't be the power supply, the added power is not a problem or something the system is even aware off.

Did you move the Dell case fan from the Dell case to this new case? The Dell motherboard is specifically setup to use & monitor that rear case fan.

When I try to boot my W520, I get a BIOS boot up error : "2100: Detection Error on HDD0 (Main HDD)". I am using PNY XLR8 240GB SSD. It worked fine for a month. I also have PGP installed and whole disc encrypted. I installed an update of Intel Management Engine Firmware and Intel Chipset, both are the latest from lenovo site because I was experiencing expreme slowness from my harddrive. Programs would freeze. Webpages would take forever to load..The next time I rebooted, I got the error. If I leave the SSD out for a bit, and put the SSD back in, the disk will work for some time... but on next reboot, it is again detection error.. TRIM is enabled on my system. I am not sure how the SSD died so quickly. I am back to using my HDD but I am not happy. I want a solution... is this a intel chipset issue? Intel IMEI issue? Is  the PNY SSD just a bad model? I've googled plenty and dont really see a solution. Sometimes there is a firmware update.. PNY has no firmware updates for my drive.. I don't see anybody else using PNY on their W520, but plenty of people are experiencing Error 2100 with SSD on their W520.. somethings fishy.. help please! thanks in advance !

Answer:W520: PNY XLR8 240GB SSD with error "2100: Detection Error on HDD0 (Main HDD)"

I don't have a ThinkPad W520 or a PNY SSD, but could it be simply that the SSD is coming loose inside the ThinkPad's chassis?  I suppose this could occur if a 7mm high SSD was inserted into a 9.5mm high 2.5" drive bay with a ~2mm spacer to "pad" the unused vertical space.

I've had my T430 for about a year, and other than two Corsair RAM sticks failing my computer has been running smoothly. Last night, my computer suddenly froze up and now it won't recognize my SSD. I'm currently using my stock HDD, but now I can't access any of the data on my SSD. I've tried running the SSD firmware update from the Lenovo site, but it wouldn't show my SSD under the memory devices (I'm not sure if this particular SSD is supported by the firmware update either). I don't think lenovo customer support would help in this situation, since my stock HDD runs fine and I didn't buy the SSD from them, so any help would be appreciated.

That error is coming from BIOS, it means there is something wrong detecting the mSATA SSD.  It could point to a hardware problem.  It is definitely not a software problem.  I would call the support line in your country, and ask what they recommend about it.

Hello! First post on this forum but been browsing for some time. My machine: ThinkPad S430, type-model: 3364-5HG, Win 7 x64, 500 GB HGST HDD. My problem is notably similiar to this one: problem occurs on very irregular basis, at times a couple of times a day but other times it goes weeks between the interrupts. It starts with some sort of short mechanical sound from the HDD, similar to the one when you turn the laptop of by pressing and holding the power button (only do this if I absolutely have to, it feels like choking someone with a pillow). After the sound, the screen freezes for a couple of seconds before the short bluescreen mentioned in the link occurs. The rest is as follows by the link above. Basically the only difference is the HDD brand (HGST in my S430 and Samsung in the link). After reboot (with power button during the automated reboot after bluescreen when the error code occurs), the laptop works fine.  It's getting quite annoying when this happens and also the suspension of not knowing when it will happen next is not good for my heart. What to do? Thanks in advance! Regards,Nicholas

Hi guys, I fitted a 64GB Sandisk P4 mSATA SSD today in my week old X220 4287CTO & get this error, I thought it maybe the bios causing the problem as reported in the forum but the threads I have read seem to be the SSD not being recognized at all. Any help would be appreciated. Product SKU: 4287CTOProduct Name: ThinkPad X220 - 3 Yr Depot Topseller Warranty Intel Core i5-2410M Processor (2.3GHz, 3MB L3, 1333MHz FSB)7 Home Premium 64 English12.5" Premium HD (1366x768) LED Backlit Display, Mobile Broadband Ready, 2x2 Antenna2 GB DDR31333MHz (1 DIMM)Keyboard UKFingerprint Reader720p HD Camera20 GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpmNo Micro Solid State DriveThinkPad Battery 29+ (6 cell)Country Pack United Kingdom with Line cord & 65W AC adapterBluetooth 3.0Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (2x2 AGN)Integrated Mobile Broadband - Upgradable

Yeah I am getting the exact same error 2101. Also X220 but 4286-CTO which I brought from US. The BIOS version is 1.17(highest I can find now).Wonder if it is a compatibillity problem or simply the bios is not programmed rightly.

Model: T450sEquiped as:Intel i54+4GB RAM256GB SSD (M.2) Configured as boot disk running Win 7 x64500GB HDD as additional storage Issue:Seemingly at random, approx once every one to two weeks while PC is on and at the desktop but not actively being used (meaning no user is sitting in front of it performing tasks) it will error and crash.  The error is a black screen with the following error: 2101: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2) Press Esc to continue. According to the user Esc does nothing and the only escape is to long press the physical power button until a power down occurs.  On reboot the system comes up without issue.  No user has actually seen the crash take place.   MY QUESTION(S):1st.  Is this most likely an issue with the T450s not being able to reliably boot from the m.2 slot or is this more likely an issue with the SSD installed in the m.2 slot?2nd.  Is this something altogether different?  Any (knowledgeable) advice or info appreciated.

Answer:T450s Thinkpad - ERROR 2101: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2)

It is hard to diagnose without seeing it, but my experience has been that the Gen4 and later CPUs (like yours) support a very low power state that is incompatible with some devices. (that would make it a problem with the card) Make sure you have the latest BIOS and power manager software installed. Look in the device manager and find the M.2 SSD. There should be a power management tab. Turn off the option to allow the system shut the device off to save energy.

I have an issue with a Lenovo X1 Carbon Touch Windows 8. It has a 512GB SSD. (Believe its Samsung)  Earlier today the computer frooze while saying plug in your charger, so I had to hold down the power button to do a forced shutdown. Upon turning it back on I got this error after hanging on the Lenovo logo for a good five minutes. Error: 2100: Detection error on SSD0 (M.2) The SSD is not visible anywhere not in BIOS or anywhere else. I've tried reseating it however it doesn't help. The BIOS is upto date, any I'm unable to update the SSD Firmware as I cannot get onto Windows as per the instrutions here - 1. I cant update firmware for the SSD as I cant get onto Windows2. The BIOS firmware is the latest 3. I've taken the SSD out and put it back in4. Reset BIOS settings5. Disconnected Battery and left it for an hour I'm panicing as all my data is on there, I assumed it was safe as it's SSD.  Please can anyone assist?  

Answer:X1 Carbon - SSD Failure? Error 2100: Detection error on SSD0 (M.2)

Sorry for a 2500 GBP laptop I'd expect better really. This is the SECOND X1 Carbon I've had out of 4 to fail me with the SSD. I've lost all my data (Yes I know I should have backed it up) that I'll never be able to recover. Ultimately I've given up on the brand of Lenovo, my company who supplies exclusively Lenovo hardware to our customers are now switching to Dell as a direct result of the lack of support and poor hardware/firmware design. Just ordered 2X Dell XPS 13's as a replacement for my less than 6 month old Lenovo X1 Carbon, never thought it would come to this but the lack of support, knowledge and consitant hardware failures has left me no choice, I can't operate or do my work on an Lenovo X1 Carbon, fingers crossed the Dell will be better as it cant get any worse than Lenovo. To anyone who has Google'd the error and found this thread some cold facts; According to my resources this error can be caused if the system is not shutdown, BSOD or sudden power loss. If it doesn't resolve itself, there is a good chance it wont. Cycle the computer numrous times, let the battery run flat. Try it a few more times. Reset the BIOS, Update the BIOS. Prevention is better than cure, supposedly updating the SSD Firmware might have prevented this from happening in the first place.Lots of reports that this is an issue with BIOS and Firmware issues that result in an early death. I can confirm this having happened twice to me on different generation and model... Read more

I am looking for an IDS that tracks an intruders activities in the event of a breach. Thanks.

Answer:Intrusion Detection System

You mean something that recognises a breach and then, instead of blocking the attempt, carefully starts to monitor and log the attacker's activities?

There can be no automated solution for that. You'd need all the breaches and the attackers to act in a predictable (machine-trackable) way and that's just impossible. Besides, an IDS can only monitor stuff that goes through it. So if I can break into a system on your LAN and get an SSH tunnel going, then I can do everything on your LAN through that SSH tunnel without the IDS being able to see anything but encypted packets.

Maybe you are interested in so-called honepots or honeynets instead?

So my dell inspiron laptop has been running a little bit slow lately apposed to it's normal fast a quick loading rate. I decided something had gone wrong so asked the computer to check the system for me. My fear had become reality.
The pre-boot assessment came up with the error code:
I have researched this and apparently, if you have this error your Hard-drive is Kaput. But it still runs, just a little slower. As it still works OK, i want to avoid replacing the hard-drive as the internet advises, and just to maybe re-install windows or whatever simple process needs doing to fix this.
So how can i fix this?? Kind of desperate here, i don't want the hard-drive getting worse and then really does go bye bye.

I have a Dell Studio XPS1495 that I bought from Best Buy about 3 years ago. A few weeks ago, I upgraded my Memory and hard drive setup to a SSD primary and a second data drive. Since the new primary drive was smaller than the original, no mirroring programs would work, nor would the Windows Recovery or Dell Recovery since they require the new drive to be the same size or bigger.

Also, There is NO windows COA sticker - it was either not there, or it came off. (Odd though, cuz the other Dell stickers are there and in good condition too) but it's a valid system that was all good. So, I got the product key from my original install using produkey, thinking that was 'the one'. So, I put in a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium, using the key that I got, and a downloaded ISO from microsoft (I forgot where, but they seem pretty easy to get) All good, but after a few weeks, I then got the activation errors, Error Code 0xc004f063 while trying to activate.

Through these forums, I learned that the Retail Key on the original install is a generic one or something and that the key that Produkey is also a generic one.

I've seen a few threads of some possible solutions, but one thing -I still have the Original Drive with the Original Install on it. I can easily pop that drive in and access the original, good install.

I'm new to the fourms so please forgive my newbieness..
I recently performed an XP Pro "repair/install" on a Dell Inspiron530. All was well until I installed SP3 and then the system began looping. There was a BSOD displayed for less than a second which I couldn't read. I booted to safe mode, disabled the "automatically restart" option from the "Startup and Recovery" window, booted normally and was greeted the following BSOD detail.

It read:

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xB9EDAA3B, 0xBA4C3324, 0xBA4C3020)

*** fltmgr.sys - address B9EDAA3B base at B9ED3000, DateStamp 480251da

I booted into safe mode again, reverted to a previously created restore point and the system was normal once more. I went back to do some house cleaning, removing all temp files, cookies, reg cleanup, etc. I scanned the system using PC Tools Spyware Dr and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, no threats or infections were found. I ran scandisk and defragged using "MyDefrag". I checked the Device Mgr for caution signs or any irregularities, everything looked in order.

I tried installing again only to get the same result.

I have a Dell Inspiron that won't start. It says it is missing its operating system.

Using the Windows 7 DVD that came with the machine I went through the repair Windows procedure 3 times. The first time it searched for restore points of which there are none because the machine has Rollback Rx installed instead. It then restarted with no change. I went through the same process but this time it said it had repaired Windows however; restarting gave me the same missing OS message. On the 3rd attempt it displayed the restored OS as being on D:\. I ran the diagnostic tool and it said no errors were found. Restarting gave the same error.

How can I get the machine to boot from D:\ or move the OS back to C:\ please?

How did that happened? Did you format your hard drive or something? How many drives do you have maybe its installed on another one.

Hi, this morning, while experiencing some issues with my Wifi, I decided to update the driver. System Update -> suggested no updates. After searching for the latest intel Wifi for my T431s Windows8.1, I found that the latest installer has version 16.10.0 while I currently have v16.1.3  and the driver was v15.10.3.2. After an uninstall and manual installation of the latest driver,, I now have a new driver Although I still have to verify if this driver fixed some issues I have with sleep/wakeup and some WiFi, I start to wonder how much I can trust System Update to supply me the latest drivers. I wonder if other people have the same issue.  Still a big fan of my Lenovos! Cheers, Norberto

I am currently upgrading a Raw Thrills Fast and Furious Drift arcade from a microtel pc to a Dell optiplex 740. I also upgraded the video card.  I was able to run the three disks for the 3.04 version of the game. Everything seemed to going fine until I started the machine. I had also changed power settings in BIOS to power on after AC loss. The Dell powers on and enters an error screen, "The memory has changed" with options for continue and setup. When I continue it goes to another error, " Error loading operating system". I noticed that when the 1st game disk was run it said erasing hard drive. I figured that to be standard.  But now I'm at a dead end on what to do next. Did running the disks erase the windows 10? Am I doing something wrong? And what would be the fix for this?
Thank you, Rooster

Most likely your game disc was infected with a virus -- game installers SHOULD NOT format the hard drive.
Run an extended diagnostic on the system (F12 at powerup).  If the hardware passes, reload the OS.

Hey guys, just thought I would warn you about the famous "Can you run it?" or "System Requirements Lab".
I was seeing if I could run Arma III and then my antivirus went off detecting a trojan virus attack!
I have posted picture of what comes up.

Please do not blame it on my antivirus, it is a trojan and don't use this service!

Hope I have raised your concern about this website.

More than likely a false positive because of the way the auto-detect works and how it collects your system data.

Norton isn't very good anyway (yes, I'm blaming your antivirus), so it's picking it up as a false positive.

I've used it tons before with a couple different AV's, and none have set it off before.

I have an emachines e520 laptop and am trying to go from Ubuntu to XP, however every time i try doing the install, it blue screens and gives me the "STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7AF4524,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)" error.

I have downloaded the drivers and included them into the XP install disk. i made an iso file from the boot disk and then added the drivers to the ISO and then burned it back to a disk. And still no luck. I do press F6 but it still goes to expect it from a floppy drive, which the laptop does not have.

the HDD in the system is a sata drive and Sata mode is set to AHCI in the setup utility of the comptuer.

Try setting the mode from AHCI to IDE in the BIOS, then boot from the Windows CD.

System restarts automatically whenever a virus detection alert is coming on the screen.? My office desktop is been installed with Avira Anti-Virus software. Whenever the modem is switched on a virus detection dialog box appears on the screen. But when performing the action to be taken for the virus detection,the system RESTARTS immediately.I just cannot close the virus detection window without taking any action for the virus found. I also scanned the whole system and deleted the viruses present. Even then when the modem is switched on virus start coming. Please Help.

Answer:System restarts automatically whenever a virus detection alert is coming.

I would recommend booting your system into Safe Mode and trying to run your Antivirus software. That may help.

My honest opinion is to reformat that machine. If you are having issues such as this, the OS is most likely too far gone to save. You could try to do a repair installation of Windows, but that leaves all of your programs intact and will most likely leave the virus installed and operational, which will not solve your problem.

My first guess is that the virus triggers the AV software and that either BSOD your machine or the virus activity does. You would need to boot to Safe Mode and disable automatic restart on error. Start>Control Panel>System>Advanced Tab>Startup and Recovery>Uncheck restart on error>OK>OK>restart. This is if you can get this far.

How do I disable the automatic detection for my speaker output jack?

Once in a while when I change jacks on for my headphones / desktop speakers, the speaker jack "Fails to detect" the change.

WTF is that? I do not want some lame windows crap trying to since when I have something plugged in or not, ESPECIALLY if its not going to wokr.

ESPECIALLY if its going to lock itself from working when it fails to detect.

if I plug the cable in, I do not want windows checking and disableing.

Answer:How To disable that Microphone jack detection system, broken joke.

well, i tried to "re"find the thread that showed me what to change in the registry editor, to disable the auto detect function.

I searched google a few more times and could not find it. but searching something with "Speaker jack auto detection disable windows 7" , somewhere I found how to disable the option in the registery.

I havent reset my computer yet, but id imagine it disabled. so probably solved.

I couldnt find the answer the first few times I checked google. so I posted.
then I found it.
now I cant find it again, to repost the answer. X_x. so if anyone finds it.

I have a Dell XPS laptop which for whatever reason decided one day not to boot. I took the opportunity to do a backup and full restore using Dell DataSafe (?) which crashed and got stuck at 29%. On attempting to restart my computer I receive an error message from SMART that my hard drive is about to fail, and despite me furiously tapping f8 to enter safe mode the error screen always overrides the safe boot menu (which I sometimes see for half a second but never long enough to do anything about it).

The backup I did using DataSafe prior to my first system restore is on a partition went to a partition on my C:\ drive so I'm loathed to switch out the HDD completely at this point.

I just want to boot in safe mode so that I can move my backup to my external HDD but I can see absolutely no way to do so. I have tried using bcdedit in the command prompt but I get the exact same thing when restarting the computer, just this time in safe mode - still no option to attempt to boot. I have no SMART options in BIOS so apparently I'm stuck with the error message!

I'm sure there are plenty of specifics I've missed out that I can provide if anybody has any ideas, just a case of jogging my memory! I've spent all day trying to work this out and it is beginning to drive me insane.

Thanks for your time (and hopefully help).


Answer:Help! Problem with system restore and SMART Hard Drive detection

It is a fake virus and I have it too! Fortunately I have my trusty iPad!
Anyway, do a google search on SMART HDD and you will see what I am talking about.
I ended up having to buy PC Tools ($40 Australian) to get rid of the virus though I am not 100% sure if it is completely gone.
I have hopefully pasted in the link I am referring to.
For my particular issue I think I am going to have to reload the OS. At present I am backing up to DVDs because any USBs or external HDD is not recognised.
The good news is that once you follow the instructions and unhide your data should still be there. Good luck.

I'm having a difficultly try to understand between HIPS, Behavior Blocker, Intrusion Detection System, and zero day protection. So I would appreciate if you guys can answer these questions below for me because I have no idea how to answer these with my rookie knowledge. Thanks, user102.

What is the differences between HIPS, Behavior Blocker, Intrusion Detection System, and zero day protection?

What is the pros and cons for each of them?

How does each one of them work when it engage unknown malicious applications?

Which one is strongest and which one is the weakest?

Which one do would you use? And why?

Answer:What is the difference between HIPS, Behavior Blocker, and Intrusion Detection System?

Very basic summary...

HIPS (Classical) monitors a whole range of actions - process creation, changes to file system, writes to registry, etc, etc, etc. What actions are monitored vary from HIPS design to HIPS design - and also there are some limitations on 64-bit systems because of Patch Guard. Classical HIPS requires the greatest amount of user input, knowledge and experience.

Behavior Blocker is different for different vendors. Some are HIPS-based, others are heuristics-based, others it seems are some type of combo.

Behavior Blocker in Emsisoft is really a HIPS that monitors for very specific actions based upon an algorithm - and not heuristics. This is done to greatly minimize the number of alerts - and subsequent user input.

Norton SONAR is an algorithm behavior blocker that evaluates hundreds of file characteristics and actions. It is more akin to file "profiling." Once again, the point being to minimize any type of user-based decision making.

Intrusion Detection System monitors network or system activities for malicious activities or policy violations. It is much more prevalent in Enterprise than Home solutions. Bitdefender being a notable exception. Here again the intent being to minimize alerts and automate decision making.

Zero-Day protection. There is no such thing. It is called this, but in reality is one or a combo of the above - or something completely different - cleverly marketed.

None of the above have a clear advantage over the ot... Read more

I purchased an X1 Yoga w/ 512 GB SSD / i5 a couple months ago - loved the laptop.  After a week or so using it I started getting random blue screens of death.  Following the BSOD, the laptop sometimes reboots normally, other times displays an error during boot "2101: Detection error on SSD (M.2)."  If this error message is displayed, the laptop won't boot and has to be restarted again.  After restarting anywhere from one to five times, it returns to function normally.   After experiencing the same problem intermittently for a couple weeks, I finally called Lenovo and reported the issue and registered to return the laptop, ordered a brand new one (again X1 Yoga / 512 GB SSD, this time i7).   After waiting a couple weeks for delivery, I received the new laptop a few days and freshly installed all of my software, transferred my data over from the faulty laptop, and got back to work as of yesterday.  Everything seemed fine, but then again today I got a BSOD with the new laptop, and the same SSD error!   I can't find much information about this error via Google search, and only found one or two posts on the forum here referencing it that aren't very helpful.   It seems like this must be a relatively uncommon problem, but I've had it with two independent laptops.  I haven't installed any exotic software or made any customizations to the laptop - it seems unlikely that I am causing this problem myself.  ...

I've been trying to get rid of this for days now. Read 100s of googled pages and tried every
anti-virus/malware software removal tool recommended. Nothing has succeded, the trojan

Hovering a cursor over it only yields two choices, Open or Ignore.

then 2 buttons to choose from, Full Scan or Learn More.

If the internet connection is left on, and the MSIE browser open,
it eventually starts throwing unwanted advertising windows.

This started out as a mistakenly installed WinAntiVirus malware, which
persisted through DOZENS of attempt at removal.

I've run the following software at least 10 different times, in both SafeMode
and Normal.

Windows Defender (Beta 2) does not find anything.

VundoFix V6.2.8 found some stuff early on, but removed it and now finds nothing

SpyBot S+D 1.4 found instances of SmitFraud Toolbar, claimed to have removed them, but they
kept re-appearing after rebooting.

I bought a 120G Crucial M500 mSATA ssd a while back and have been seeing fairly consistent boot errors saying it can't detect the ssd. This is my boot/root drive, and the laptop runs fine for days/weeks at a time without problem. Which is odd, because I can boot off that ssd just fine after pressing escape to ignore the error. Sometimes from a cold boot it doesn't happen, but pretty much 100% of reboots result in that error message. Is there a way to fix this? It's rather annoying to have to babysit the laptop on boot.

I got a new T440s with a standard disk hard drive. My coworker gave me a Crucial SSD 512GB drive to swap in its place. I imaged the current drive on to the SSD and inserted it. Upon boot, before the boot sequence I receive the 2102 error. There is nothing in the SSD2 slot, as we didn't buy this option. The theory in my workplace (tech firm) is that I may have accidentally turned power on while swapping the drive while no drive was in the primary slot. How/where in the bios do I keep the machine from looking into this slot to boot? Currently what happens is the error is thrown and I have to hit escape to boot windows. This is a minor inconvenience, there is no loss of functionality, but when powering up on a dock or rebooting, it requires user presence. Thanks for your help.

Answer:2102: Detection error on SSD2 (M.2)

t440s might have three slots for drives - one sata III 2,5" and two m.2 slots. Usually new laptops with HDD are shipping with cache m.2 SSD which is placed in the 3rd slot. Since error 2102 is msata drive detection related I'd suggest to check out your laptop configuration and remove small SSD since you have primary SSD drive. But at first check out the function of small SSD drive - cache only or/and hibernation partition storage. And disable appropriate features for that drive.

Hello all. I've got a user who's T430s just goes to the ThinkPad logo and then after several seconds moves on but never gets to loading Windows. We just get 2100: Detection Error on HHDO. I had another T430s so I swapped drives. Now the T430s that wasn't booting boots fine. So I assumed the hard drive was going but the odd thing is that the 2nd T430s which now has the "problem drive" in it doesn't give me the 2100 error. The catch is the drive is encrypted with BitLocker and no combo of passwords or finger swipes will let us proceed. So my dilemna is I can't tell if this drive is bad because I can't see it. I ran Lenovo Bootable Diagnostics and they said they couldn't scan because it was encrypted. I put the drive in an external dock and connected it to a Windows 10 system and the drive doesn't show up under the Bitlocker to Go section. Is there any way to tell if this drive is completely done? It would be great to get data off of it but I can't seem to find a way. Everything I find seems to require a drive letter and this drive has none. Even booted into a live Ubuntu with the drive in the laptop and it wouldn't see it. Thanks all. 

Answer:2100: Detection Error on HHDOcan

A lot of people have had this issue with perfectly good drives, and some have said they resolved it by going into setup, and then saving settings upon exit.   Others have said that by pressing F12, entering the boot menu and selecting the HD will let it boot as well.    Another said that by changing from SATA to Compatibility in the BIOS, restarting and then setting SATA back to AHCI will force a reset of the drive so it will boot too. Not sure if any will work for you, but you might put the drive back in the original system and give it a try (if you have not already anyway). I did see also where Amy_Lenovo posted in the same thread that a fix was found for the X250 ThinkPads, but that it required the system be sent into Lenovo.

Hi all

I've been testing AVAST 4.2 fairly rigorously on both VISTA X-64 and W7 7100 X-64.

Straight from the MS site I downloaded the .VHD Virtual disks (XP compatability mode)

AVAST reports that the .VHD file contains a "COMPRESSION BOMB". Now this doesn't actually tell me what this is -- but the fact that it reports something with the word BOMB in it means it can't be good.

Now as this VHD file was downloaded from the official Microsoft site I assume it HAS to be OK (or does it - I would imagine MS regularly checks its own websites - there's plenty of people out there who'd jump at a chance of attacking a MS site if they could).

I'm going to download the XP compatability mode again and have another scan.

VISTA again reports the file as CLEAN) so I think there still might be a couple of things AVAST need to fix in W7 when reading compressed or "archive" type files.

I can't post the screenshot -- once I see something with the word "BOMB" in it I immediately WIPE the entire machine. Schnell Fast, Pronto.


Answer:Avast 4.2 - Error in detection in .VHD file

The Avast forum reports this: A decompression bomb is a file that unpacks to an enormous amount of data - thus "flooding" the unpacking engine. It's quite hard to detect such files reliably, so it's possible that it gives some false alarms ocassionally.

The entire forum is here,

Hi Team.So my thinkpad t450s just crashed in the midst of playing some music.Then it rebooted and said 2101: Detection error on SSD1 (M.2)I cant come back to my OS because it is installed on the said SSD.Already read the manual and opened the thing up and cleaned and reseated the SSD. But does not help.Guess the SSD is broken? OR does anyone have any other ideas??Thanks a lot!

Whenever I try to restart my ThinkPad T440s, it takes a very long time to get past the "ThinkPad" screen.  If I hard reboot it while it's stuck here (press and hold the power key, then turn it back on), it loads just fine.  However, if I let it keep going it beeps loudly and angrily and gives me the 2100: Detection error on HDDO (Main HDD) on a black screen with only "Press Esc to continue".  When I press Esc it loads the boot screen, but without access to my hard drive.  If I hard reboot it again, it starts just fine. Any ideas on why it would be doing this, or what I could do to fix it?  It looks like it was a common problem a few years ago, but this is new to me and it doesn't really look like there was a fix back then.  Hoping there's better news now? Any help is appreciated!

Hi all,i am discovering the same problem as most people here.I have an expensive Yoga Thinkpad 12, about 2000,= euro's in januari 2014, warranty endded in januari 2016, my extra 3rd yr warranty i have bought is missing by Lenovo (i forgot the registration but in the mean time i have send the supportdesk from Lenovo al the documents including pincode from the card) and now they say de extra warranty was canceled and / or credited. Nothing of that. poor service for such a great brand.But now my problem. about 3 weeks ago all of a sudden my SSD stopped and generated this 2100 error. It's a Samsung M27TD256 from the same series as Lenovo mentioned. Because of Lenovo's attitude of not servicing (Oh yes the supportdesk guy said SSD Failure, needs to be replaced for new) i went on to the Internet how to open the machine and without any damage that was no problem. I have a computer repaircentre myself and i tried to replace te Samsung SSD with: a 120 Gb Kingston SSD / a 240 Gb Kingston Fury SSD / an Intel 120 Gb SSD. All brand new, right out of stock, non will work !!!So i took the old original SSD, tested it in another PC and it works perfectly, i could install Win 10 and boot from it.I put it bak in the Yoga... nothing. the 2100 error again.So i thought it would be the mailboard or controller but curious a i am, i took an old 250 Gb harddrive, no SSD and guess what....... The Yoga booted up without any error messages, external DVD connected and i could install an OS (whatever, Win8... Read more

Answer:2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD) Where is ...

I had the same problem on a S230U Lenovo Twist. I replaced the MB and the HDD and the HD connector/controller and had the same problem. By accident, as a result of testing I installed the HD without the bracket that holds it in place. Voila it has not failed once since then. It has been running flawlessly for 2 months or more now. I havent bothered to reinstall the bracket since it is running great. There is almost no extra room in the HD compartment so I am not worried about it flopping around. Only thing I can figure is there is some kind of static buildup with the bracket installed. I tried bending the bracket to see if I could make it contact the MB to discarge static if that was the case. No good. Removed the bracket, and it worked immediately. I don't know if that will work for you but it worked for me.

Hi, I bought Thinkpad Yoga last year. The Yoga originally came with 512 GB HDD plus 16GB SanDisk SSD. A couple of days ago, I replaced the original HDD with Crucial BX100 SSD (500GB). Since then, I have the 2100 error. It goes like this. When I boot the computer by pressing the power button on the side of the computer, it boots well. About 30 minues later, the computer suddenly loses connection with the newly installed SSD, and shows 2100 error message on black screen. When I press any key (as instructed on the screen), the computer shows Boot Menu. But the Boot Menu lists only ATA HDD1: SANDisk SSD U110 16GB.  When I reinstalled the original HDD, 2100 error didn't happen. But I don't want to use HDD anymore for speed issue.  If anyone solved a similar problem, please help me.  Thanks in advance.- H_Kim.  

Answer:2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD)

This is not just that one particular comptuer type or HDD type. I have two different Edge Series comptuers with standard HDD that are consistantly getting the 2100 Connection Error and Missing Operating System errors at bootup. Have to boot a couple of times to get the OS to load properly.

Good day dear forum members! My brand new X1 Carbon arrived fully loaded......with errors. Right out of the box it hit me with a BSOD (CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED). The system boots from the second attempt, but BSOD pops up every 5-10min. All drivers/BIOS updated. 1TB Samsung nvme ssd (PM961 f/w3L0QCXY7) seems to be using a driver dated 6/21/2006 and so does its "Standard NVM Express Controller". Samsung nvme driver cannot be installed because it claims there's no suitable ssd, Samsung magician doesn't recognize the drive either, however, it is properly identified in the device manager. Any suggestions before I ship this back..? Any help appreciated.

Hi,  I need to upgrade the firmware of the SSD and when I put the SSD in Lenovo laptops in ROM mode. I get the following error "2100 Detection Error on HDD0" as disk can't be read.  After this it asks me to press "ESC" to continue. I want it to go to PXE boot when the DISK failure is found as I push OS in the RAM and then treat this disk as secondry (SSD) and then recover it.  My boot order is set as :: SSDPXE  Can some please help how can I avoid getting in the Press ESC to continue and make machine reboot automatically? By the way its 440P lenovo machine I tried this stuff on. Any help is appreciated. Thanks-Vishal

My W530 has just started displaying the detection error, however, Windows can still see the device, as well as the BIOS
Windows shows it as the actual hard drive model.
however, the BIOS shows it as DISK.
does this mean the drive is failing(again), or is it the SATA controller?

Answer:2100 hard drive detection error

The mSATA SSD or the hard drive?

Hi, I just received my T430 about 4 days ago and it's working perfectly until I was trying to install important windows updates. As I was rebooting my laptop after the installation (which fails everytime I don't know why), my computer gave me a loud beep and a error code of 2101 detection error. So I searched this forum and found this solution from another post that had the same problem as mine.As i was following the steps,( i did cmd, uninstalled express cache, and did disk managment) but as i went on my disk management i could not find my mSATA. I have a 16 gb mSATA and it was working perfectly fine before. I've noticed on my reboot that it took longer to load and the error message would then come up.So my problem is that I cannot view my mSATA disk on my disk managementThankyou!

Answer:2101 Detection Error: Cannot view my mSATA

The Error 2101: Detection error on HDDx miniSata is a BIOS error. This has nothing to do with the operating system you have installed or any drivers. During the POST, the system does not see the miniSata drive. I (like some others) received my new T530 recently, setup it all up and then a few hours later received this error. The solution is simple. You must open up your ThinkPad. Remove the two keyboard screws and remove the keyboard and RE-SEAT the miniSata drive. There is 1 screw holding the board down. Remove it, re-insert it in. Screw everything back up and voila, no more issue. Go to the Lenovo / ThinkPad Guides and Manuals page for your device ( and download the Hardware Maintenance Manual for your ThinkPad. There are clear instructions (for those less inclined) on how to remove the keyboard. You do NOT need to disconnect the ribbon cable. Simple / carefully slide the keyboard forward and the miniSata drive will be visible and accessible. You can also use the ExpressCache program to get stats on the miniSata drive and see how it is working. Open a Command Prompt (in Administrator Mode) and issue the command: eccmd -info   -   Display ExpressCache activity informatio eccmd -?   -  Will show you all options eccmd -format   - Will reformat and clear the cache drive. Hopefully, this will help out those out there with this issue.
