Laptop hard drives are usually the 1st to go when it comes to issues with laptops.

I would recommend replacing it. Roughly 50 bucks for a 40 or 60Gb laptop Hard drive. Install it and try your recovery cd again.

My wifes laptop is from 2001 and it has gone through 2 hard drives. Its just the way they are. Backup data, always!

My Toshiba Satellite A105 was accidentally dropped on the floor. When I turned it on and after choosing "HDD" from the Boot Menu, the screen would display this: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure,...


Sorry but Unfortunately Hard drives (HDD) are very susceptible to physical shocks and can be damaged that way. It may be possible to take it to a repair center to see if they can salvage some of you data but their are no guarantees.

I need the hardrive drivers mk1637gsx 160 HD SATA


Theres no such thing as Hard Drive Drivers

Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.

Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.

Laptop won't boot CD with HDD installed.


If it hangs with the new hard drive installed and doesn't without it hooked up then definitely the new hard drive is bad. Return it and get another one.

Recovery console key convination for a laptop?


Hi there.
Restart the PC and hit F2 while it boots up, this will take you into the bios, look for boot devices and set the CD to the first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios. The compuer will restart and boot from the CD drive.
Once the OS has installed go back into the bios and set the HDD (hard drive) to first boot device.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

System time clock looses time


hello
here is a guide to disassemble the laptop
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/remove-motherboard-1.htm
Some motherboards have the battery soldered on ,i am not sure if yours is or not ,the batteries usually look like watch batteries.
you could always get a quote from an authorised toshiba support agent if you are uncomfortable opening the laptop.

The information on the hard drive will not be lost as it is saved on the hard drive itself.

Toshiba a105 s2194 won't turn on.


Please try to remove the battery and just connect the power adapter to turn it on. You shoudl get the screen to work. After which, power off and then connect the battery back.

If this does not work, it maybe a hardware proble with the screen or the inverter

Toshiba A105 sat. laptop


No, no need for hard drive. Press and hold the FN key and press F4 once, if nothing happens try it again. If screen appears then your in luck. Otherwise the back light needs to be replaced for your LCD screen. Try an external screen and press FN+F4 key and you should have a screen so you can see if there are other problems. Good luck!
