    I bought a SATA - USB connection station and put the HD in it. Now I try to upload all files, but the Systems tells me that the HD is damaged or unreadable. Do you have a suggestion?

    I tried to run a Scandisk -> right mouse click on the drive -> properties -> Extras -> Scan Disk, correct? It does not work. I heared that there is a Scan Disk from Microsoft would that help? What else can I try?

    System says that it is deleting damaged notes in the attribute list type code 128 gelöscht and other notes. Now it is checking Indizes. Yes now I am on the HD. What was it? Was maybe this the problem with the XP on my girlfriends LapTop as well?

    Initially, try running a disk utility on it such as scandisk. Here is a step by step how-to run scandisk in XP. However the drive you want to scan if the Hitachi from the Toshiba which probably would be the "E" in your PC.

    you can try opening a Command Prompt ( Windows key + R, type "CMD" less the quotes). Inside the Command Prompt, type chkdsk E: /f
    assuming that the Hitachi HD is E

    I suspect that part of the files were corrupted. This would justify the clean fresh re-install. you will never know the extent of the damage/corruption. The corrupt files may very well also include windows files hence the failure to boot normally.

    Again a favor please. for the site to acknowledge my responses, it would be very much appreciated if you could rate this post and your other one as you see them fit.

How to restore toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 laptop to "out of box" state? I dont have any disks for my laptop,too.

Is there an application on your system that lets you "burn" a set of CD/DVD "System Restore" disks?

Is there a "hidden" System Recovery partition on your disk-drive?

Can you contact Toshiba, and order a set of "System Restore" disks?

Toshiba M115

Hi again and welcome back to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Would initially suggest to clean the memory(/ies). Turn over the laptop, behind one of the panels/lid/cover secured by a screw or two would be the memory modules. Snap them out, use a hard pencil eraser to clean the little gold pins, a dry brush on the memory slots and re-insert the memories back, try again.

Should this be not corrective, it would appear that you have a video driver problem and fails to load correctly. Try booting into "Last known good configuration that worked", otherwise might require re-installing Windows all over again, sorry.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Toshiba M35X-S349 (Freezes Periodically)

Update: I looked at the plug connecting the HD to the PC and pulled it about 1/2 way back off and reinserted into machine. I then pulled the HD back out and noticed that it was not all the way pushed back on and it wasnt parallel to the HD. Basically I am thinking that the HD is not sitting properly in the bay for some reason or another, but I have been running 10+ hours with no problems as of yet. I did reformat the HD so I am going down that road of reloading and letting run awhile, reboot, repeat. Not sure if solution, but looking real good at this point.
