This is a toshiba notebook right? pls use the toshiba recovery disc. its is bootable, just need to change boot priority.press f12 then select cd/dvd drive as first priority . everything will be automatic. if it still did not detect your hard disk, it is already damaged. needs to be replaced.

Itu menunjukkan yang laptop kamu boot menerusi rangkaian.
Kamu harus tukar pilihan boot dalam "BIOS setup" dan pastikan Hardisk ditempatkan pada boot yang pertama. Selamat mencuba.

It looks like the laptop is trying to boot on network,
you need to enter the bios setup and make sure the hardisk is assigned as 1st boot. Good Luck.. :)

The computer does not boot into the operating system and displays "Operating System not found."


Hi,
For that problem, do this first check-up your bios setting.
Power on your PC laptop
, when screen popped up ( press F2, delete etc. ) to get into standard bios Setup you see there if your hardisk drive detected or not detected. if not detected try to open your Laptop PC ( need power off. open cover at the back of your laptop ) check-up your hardisk drive for loose power cable, data cable hardisk Some burn , noise hardisk sound ) if detected, your operating system corrupted. you need to Reinstall your operating system like windows xp, windows 7 or linux base operating system. try that Solution first.

Just let me know if not yet working your laptop PC.
Regard.

Hi there, I am unable to get into my laptop because I forgot the password, is there a way to reset it? Thanks


for the windows password,
solution is long.

get hard disk out. use another laptop/pc to read all your important files.
return hardisk and re install your programs.

then copy back your files.

make sure you have all your files safe before repair and that you have
all your needed software like drivers.

I want istall win xp o/s so i need to change bios setup to detect the hardisk drive. how can i change bios srtup?


Hello,

Here is what you need to do to install XP on your laptop that came with Vista or Win 7.

If your hard drive is SATA (pretty much standard these days) you will need to search the manufacturer's site for a floppy disk SATA driver install package.* You will need a USB floppy drive for installing XP.
* Copy the SATA drivers (should be denoted as "F6 drivers" or similar) to a blank disk.
* Have the USB drive connected. It should automatically map as A:\.
* Go into BIOS and find a setting for ACPI Compatible and set on.
* Now install XP normally from the CDROM, and when it says "press F6 to install third-party drivers", press F6 and follow the options to get the SATA drivers from the disk.
* Complete setup as normal.

or

You can check the following link for more detailed info.

Thanks !!

When i try to start up my laptop, i get a black screen that says "NTLDR" is missing" and "press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" when I restart it, the same screen just reappears. I've also tried pressing F11 to...


The file can be copied from different computer using the same operating system and same version..It can only be done if you can hook up your hardisk from that computer and make it as slave...go to search file and search for the NTLDR file and its directory. copy the file and save it to the same directory of your hardisk slave. If file copying is successful, disconnect your hardisk from that computer and connect it to your laptop, then try to boot.

If that did not work, you can repair your missing file by running your windows installer. Make your cd rom as first booting device and run the setup of windows, when prompted, press F8.. follow some instructions. After searching previous windows system press R key to repair the system.. The set up will restart your unit once its complete.

i hope i help you with this...

much appreciated if you rate this solution..thnaks.

Please with my problem.i cant use my laptop dell because of this error.''password authecation system''


I you have a bios level password enabled and do not know the password, then you will have to contact Dell Technical Support to get a MASTER PASSWORD to disable it. There is no hardware path on a Dell portable (Aside from replacing the motherboard) to get around the password. To resolve:
  1. Contact Dell Tech Support (80-624-9896 USA)
  2. Validate that you are an authorized user of the system
  3. Once done, TS will generate a master password for you.

Hardisk not detect.


First Make sure the hard drive power connector and ribbon cable are connected.
Swap the hard drive.
if id doesnt wrk then..
Go to the BIOS setup, and under the Integrated Peripherals menu, make sure that ‘On Board HDC’ is enabled for both Primary and Secondary channels. Also ensure that all drive types are set to AUTO under the Standard CMOS Setting. If you are not comfortable with changing the BIOS values, just reset the BIOS to factory defaults.
Hope this helps
keep me updated
Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!

Error to Detect, hardisk must be formatted


The problem might not be with the HHD instead it could be your bios setup. you will have to download drivers for the bios of you laptop and install them in your operating system then try to access the hard-disk.
