If you have reinstalled windows, on this hardrive using a different computer, it would not load into windows on the nortino 6770, because the windows now has the settings compatible with the other computer not this machine.
To get around this problem, you would have to reinstall windows, by placing the haddrive in the 6770 only. To do this , you can either copy the contents of the windows cd , to a flash drive or pen drive ,and then connect the same to the USB port of the laptop.
The other way , is connect an external USB cd drive and install the same.

Best of luck

I tried to download windows 7 on my ACER 5351, and near the end the laptop restarted. It came up with this error code : Cannot boot from CD: Code 5. When I took the CD out, the following error code...

The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Acer aspire 5517 is having problems loading the Operating system. when it try's to load it comes to a black screen that says that there is no bootable device connected. i restarted the computer and enabled...

have you tried looking for a windows label on the laptop that will tell you what version of windows is on it

The fact you are seeing two hard drives is probably because it is partitioned. The hard drive you tried to boot from to repair it , that is the system recovery partition the other partition is where your windows is installed

try pressing the ALT key & F10 together immediately after turning the laptop on

This should invoke the recovery partition to restore windows back to how you got it from the factory


so anything on it will be wiped and it will be as you got it when it was purchased

If this helped you please vote for me

P.S. Other people please note how the poster explained there problem, in great detail and not just something like my laptop wont work

I have a Vostro 1500 Dell laptop running Windows XP and just recently my CD/DVD drive has stopped working. I was wondering if I should reload my drivers and which ones I should download. Thanks, Mike...

There aren't specific drivers for a CD/DVD drive, they came built in the windows installer. If you have problems with you CD/DVD drive, you will have to change it. It's very easy, you won't have to dissamble the laptop. You can see on youtube how to replace a CD/DVD drive: There are CD/DVD drivers for 10$ on second hand.

A disk read error occured and keep on re-start

Please check that the hard disk is connected properly. If you know that the hard disk is working, check whether it is detected or not. If it's not detected, you'll need to recheck it again with the power supply. If possible, try it to another Laptop so that you can make sure that Hdd isn't the culprit. In case it's detected and the problem still persists, repair the operating system installation, this will definitely solve your problem. Good luck.

I brought a toshiba from the pawn shop and i tried to change from windows xp to windows vista how can i find a hard drive disk to install windows vista

You don't need to replace the Hard drive in the laptop, you can usually upgrade, or install vista from the CD-ROM / DVD-Rom.

If your laptop does not have a DVD drive to install vista, you may use file sharing to install it from another computer on the network. To do this follow these steps:

1) Place the Vista DVD in second computer
2) right-click on the DVD-drive that has the Vista DVD in it, and select " Share..."
3) You may need to press the "Advanced sharing" button to enable sharing, if so, do that, and just hit the " apply " button
4) OK out of all of those menues
5) on your laptop open " my computer" and click the " map network drive "
6) browse to the location of your drive on the other computer, and click " OK "
7) install Windows vista

If you do however need a new hard drive for your laptop, you can usually get them from any PC store such as Bestbuy, fry's, or online from places such as, and

You will need to know what type of hard drive you have, and how to replace it. The manual for your laptop usually has this type of information.

When putting Vista on a laptop, be sure it meets the minimum requirements.

Xp won't load to hard Disk

Your RAM modules could be faulty or needs reseating. If reseating doesn't work, try swapping them around from the other laptop to see if that works.

Need a new hard drive

Hi Ekhubbar,

First of all, if your laptop is still under warranty and suffering from a hardware fault, it may be worth checking with Toshiba in the first instance so see if they can replace it. If you can provide any details about why you require a new hard drive, I may be able to assist further, otherwise if you are just looking for a replacement of the same size and spec, see below.

The product spec of your system quote that the M45-S165 comes with :

"80GB (5400 RPM) Enhanced IDE (ATA-6) hard disk drive; 8.0mm height; user removable"

Doing a quick search reveals a price at around $60.00 (for a drive made by Toshiba). However if you are going for something cheap and cheerful from egg, you may want to check out the $35 drive. It is the same size in storage, and spec wise it will access your data faster.

Here is a link to the specific product in question (on

So it would be cheap to buy a seperate laptop hard drive, but do make sure that you have a professional replace it for you.

Hope this helps,
