Question about Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5044 15.6" 2GB RAM 320GB 6 Cell Battery (PSC15U01L010) PC Notebook
I can turn the computer on, but it won't get much farther than the toshiba logo. While it would usually start booting Windows 7, I instead get PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE Rom. No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key Now, I don't know if this helps much, but I've tried installing Ubuntu from a CD and, while it boots, it cannot install because it cannot find 4.4 gigs of HD space.

Unless you repartitioned your hard drive before attempting to install ubuntu, i would bet, based on your symptoms, that you damaged your MBR for windows. When the TOSHIBA splash screen is displayed when you first turn on your computer, a boot menu prompt may be displayed for a few seconds near the bottom of the screen, indicating that a key (F2 or F12, for example) can be pressed to display a menu of boot options. you need to look for the prompt for "repair"...hopefully, your backup of windows is not damaged...

Probably the hard drive in your laptop is gone.
try booting ubuntu in live mode, so without installing it.
when the boot is completed, launch the tool gparted and see if it detects the hard drive: if it doesn't, you need to change the hard disk..

cable plug possible defective, if possible plug into another computer and see if error occurs. since you did not state OS go into the Device Manager and insure 'network adapter' has driver installed and working. Is there an external media hooked up?

The hard drive may just need reseating to make it work, failing that the hard drive is either faulty or the had disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port, if you see this drive as a external drive and can see the contents of the hard drive the it is OK.
If the hard drive isn't recogonized then the hard drive is faulty and you need to get a new hard drive for your laptop and install Windows, the drivers and your programs etc.

If the sound you are referring to is a clicking sound, then it is a hard drive failure.
Your computer is trying to boot up the operating system from the hard drive, but when it fails to access the hard drive, it tries to boot up from other devices configured on the BIOS. Apparently, your next choice for booting the operating system is set to the LAN card. Hence, you get the message "PXE-E61 Media test failure", which means that the computer tried to boot up the operating system over the network but it found out that your network cable is not connected to your computer's network interface card.
