Hi i havw a toshiba satelite laptop had problems so i put it back to factory settings now i just have a black screen saying saying reboot insert disc or reset

Sounds like the recovery partition is was deleted or corrupted. Easiest solution might be to order recovery disks from the manufacturer or work with someone for a fresh re-install of Windows.

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...

You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi,toshiba satelite pro L20 beeps when start up

Run check disk for hard drive errors. I recommend immediately backing up all your data that you can, wiping it, and reinstalling your programs. The rebooting problem smells like a bad hard drive. I just went through it with a Compaq at work.

Hi, i broke the charger plugg (internal) on my toshiba satelite m55-s326, and i dint know what sice the plug is, i cant find it by googling, and it doesent say on the plug ( does not have warranty ) does...

Unless you have accident insurance then NO.

It's not covered any warranty because it's considered user damage.

Here's a picture of what the insides of your computer look like.

I can't tell because it's covered up with black where the jack connects to the moterboard, but on MOST you are able to just swap the cables / jack and you are back in business.

Or you can find a local repair shop to do it. They usually charge about $100.

Here's a picture so you know I'm talking about.

you can find the cable jack on ebay...I didn't see one by itself only those attached to motherboards.

I know that some, especially the older Toshiba's had them permanantly attached to the just do some research or ask sellers on ebay to take a look at the motherboard for you....most of the time if you ask nicely they'll do it.

Best of luck!

Computer shuts off when in bios

Does it matter when the ac adapter is plugged in, or your battery is in? You could be looking at a failing motherboard or possible bad ram. I would first try both power options, and then take your hardrive out to see if it still happens. If it does, then take each piece of RAM out too see if that is causing the issue.
Most likely the end result will be either a failing motherboard or a bad CMOS battery.

I cant open windows in my comp. toshiba satelite 14 15 s173


if the windows is no longer starting you need to reinstall it from the cd or recovery media that came with the computer.

if you don't have either you can contact a professional who can do the work for you.

Let me know if you need anything else.
