Toshiba laptop wont boot correctly. Upon start up it flashes blue screen. Does not recognize optical drive to try to fix windows 8 or reinstall windows 8.1.

Sounds like the hard drive has an issue. Do you hear a very faint clicking sound when it tries to boot up? put your ear near the front of the laptop, bottom of keyboard area and listen for a clicking sound. if you hear a click click click click sound repeating continuously, its a failing hard drive. If you hear ths sound, you will need to buy a replacement hard drive. Replacing it is easy. Turn your laptop upside down and look for the small door that houses your hd. Unscrew the door and take hard drive out. Now you take this hard drive to Staples and ask them for a replacement. Once you know what you need, whether Sata or IDE hard drive, you can buy a replacement cheaply on eBay or buy it from any computer store. pop the hard drive back in and then you should be able to install a new operating system on the laptop. If you do not hear a clicking sound, then you may have a corrupted windows boot. Have you tried booting in safe mode? as you turn the power on, hold down the f8 button. You will get a screen asking if you want to boot in safe mode. Select, safe mode with networking. If it boots normally in safe mode, you can then put in your windows cd and do a repair. If you cannot boot into safe mode, and you have tried replacing hard drive, but cd/dvd is still not working, then you may need o take it in or diagnostics. You can buy very cheaply on eBay, a connector that will allow you to connect your hard drive to another computer via USB. This will allow you to test the hard drive and also possibly get data of of it, provided the hard drive is not too badly damaged. I hope this helps.. Please ask any questions you might have.

It went in for service when we got it back it only turned on once. now when we turn it on the screen is black and on the top left corner the cursor is flashing and if you press on a key it makes a loud...

There are two possibilities, damaged memory and hard drive not detected or damaged. Most likely is, the hard drive is not detected or damaged. The characteristics of the hard drive is damaged, when you turn on your laptop, you are like the sound of this

To be sure, the hard drive is in trouble, press F2 to enter BIOS, check your hard drive, or check the hard drive is detected or not.

If the hard drive is not detected and didn't sound the hard drive is damaged (like in the video), the hard drive can be repaired and the data can be saved. Solution: take it to the Service Center.

If the hard drive is not detected and the sound of damaged hard drives, optical damage your hard drive. Solution: replace the hard drive.

Thinkpad 380 stops on bootup before password and had a clicking sound

Sad to say, that clicking sound is a common sign of a bad hard drive. A working system might be able to read data from the drive if it retries enough times. You can remove the drive from the laptop and connect it to another computer using a drive adapter or by putting it into an external drive case. The clicking sound usually means the drive is pretty far gone, though. Hopefully you've been backing up anything important.

I wish I had more positive news.

Acer Aspire 5570 makes unusual sound constantly....

Typically that sound would be your hard drive or CD drive. If you don't have a CD in your drive, your hard drive is probably working overtime. You may have Spyware or Malware that's creating a problem. So, download, install and run SpyBot and Malwarebytes to see if problem is resolved. If still the sound, your hard drive may be failing. Hope this helps.

Clicking sound from the hard drive near the cd

A clicking hard drive is a dying hard drive. Stop using it immediately. Replace it, then use a SATA to USB or IDE to USB adapter to try to copy off any data you might have that is still salvageable. The more you try to use it, the less chance you have of recovering information.
