Blank screen "BOOTMGR is missing" for toshiba satellite A215-S5837


I would assume this may have Windows XP or 7, see if you can find the recovery disk for your machine. One of the things you can try is use the CD as your boot disk (you may need to enter the BIOS or SETUP to change the boot order...there will be a key to hit when you see the Toshiba splash screen when you first boot the machine...it will say press "<some key here>" to enter setup.)
Once you boot from the disk I would try getting to a command prompt and running the following command: chkdsk c: /f /r

This will scan and repair any bad sectors on your hard drive and if they can be repaired it may make your machine bootable again. If they cannot be repaired, it may be that your hard drive is dying. Either way...if you get into the machine (even from the boot disk) if you can see the drive, I'd recommend backing up whatever files you can, because if the drive dies, you will lose your data

My toshiba satellite A215-S5837 when trying to bootup gives error message cannot boot do you want to start from last good boot. I say yes it still does not boot just goes so far and then I get clicking...


once you get a bad sector it usually spreads like a virus through your hard drive. the best thing to do is to buy a new hard drive, install it and do a clean install of windows. you can buy or borrow a hard drive enclosure and rescue your documents from your old drive but isolating the bad sector doesn't work, especially if your drive is making a noise

How do I know that my hard disk has bad sectors?


you can download ubcd, or minipe, and burn them to a cd, if you have another computer, then insert the cd of your choice (minipe is a bit easier), minipe has a start menu similar to the normal windows start menu, somewhere in that menu, there should be a chkdsk, or check disk utility, you would want to run that, and choose yes when it asks if you want to check for bad sectors

Used Recovery Disk and I have an application error


It seems like your hard drive has some bad sectors.

You need to run some disk manager software to check/fix tour disk.

The best choice would be to download the "ultimate cd" from here

Boot from the cd, go to "hard disk tools" and select a disk manager (better to select the one from the same manufacturer of the disk).

Run a scan, and fix the drive (if it is possible). Then rerun your system restore cd again.


If the hard drive can't be fixed, you'll have to replace it before running the system retore.


Good luck!

Need help for Toshiba Satellite A60


You have to order replacement disks from Toshiba - probably about $30 for a set.

If you are getting errors with installing just plain XP, you probably have a hardware problem - Probably a bad hard drive or stick or RAM. Try pulling one stick out (if you have 2) and reinstalling XP.

You can get hard drive testing software here:
http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm

Get the ISO download on that page. If you need to know how to burn the ISO to CD properly look here:

Laptop


Sir,
i assume you are asking for a restart when your computer is stuck and you cat do a normal restart.
In such event keep power key (that you use to start the laptop) pressed for few seconds. that will force shutdown it. then you can restart the pc like normal.
