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!

Your hard drive is probably dead.However there are stillhopes for hard drive datarecovery.
Put the hard drive in a plastic bag to be compatible for the freezer. Freezingsometimes works to revive a dying hard drive, at least for a shorttime(Probable just about 20 minutes), but be sure that the bag is sealedtightly so that condensation and ice crystals don't form. Put it in yourfreezer for 24 hours that will do the trick. While it's still cold, plug itinto your computer.And you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And you mayact quickly,because you may only have 20 minutes to recover your data off itand after that the hard drive is completely dead.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office where supply datarecovery service but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money andwhether they can recover data is not guaranteed.
Here is a tutorial to guide you how torecover hard drive data.

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.

ERROR: 01-0134-0000. The tool could not get HDD physical information. Please Press [OK] to turn off the computer. I CHECKED THE net 7 it says i have bad boot up sectors in HD Please help


Actually, the error-message is "worse" news than just having a few bad sectors.
It indicates that the electronics on the circuit-board under the "spinning" part of the disk-drive
are not returning any information, when queried.

So, the disk-drive is "dead".

If it still is under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get a replacement disk, at minimal cost to you.

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.

Sounds like the HDD has fallen victim to Malware of the destructive type. Does the drive boot at all? If not use the software that came with it or go to the website and download a copy. You will have to restructure your HDD.

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.

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
