I have a Toshiba A505-S6960 laptop. Never have had a problem until today.......when I turn the laptop on it goes through the boot process but only makes it to the Toshiba logo screen with the F2 and F12...


It seems that your computer is not seeing your hard drive. This could either be because of bios settings or more likely because the hard drive has failed. If the unit is under warranty, call Toshiba support and describe the issue to them. If not, places like Best Buy can determine for sure the cause of the issue.

I have a Dell mini netbook Inspiron 910 when I turn the pc on it says a disk read error occurred press ctrl+Alt+Del to restart when I do that the same thing keeps coming up what do I do ???? Please help


It sounds like your hard drive has failed.
Make sure that you have removed all removable media like diskettes, CD, DVD, or flash drives from the machine to confirm. If after removing these items you continue to receive this error, then most likely the hard drive has failed.
Take the notebook in to a service center to have the hard drive replaced and the operating system installed.
Hopefully you have a backup of your data, since it is all most likely lost.

Gateway/vista black screen with no ctrl+alt+del but a nice cursor


Try this, before it boots up and just after in posts press F8, it should bring up a page where you can choose your boot option, choose "Safe Mode", if the computer does boot to safe mode there are a few steps you can do to remedy this.

First goto my computer, c:drive/windows and scroll down to a folder called prefetch open the folder, highlight everything in that folder by left clicking once on one of the icons and holding control(ctrl) then pressing A once everything is highlighted hold down the shift key and press delete, everything should now be gone, exit out of all the windows do a disk clean up, my computer right click on c:drive (your main drive) and click on disk cleanup tick all boxes and then click ok to start deleting the temp files. once finished reboot mechines and leave it to boot up. if you still are having problems or it wont boot up into safe mode post back. cheers.
