Keep pressing f12 when the computer first starts up this should show a list of boot devices, choose the hard drive. if the boot menu doesnt show up youll need to go into your bios setup and make sure the hard drive is the first boot device. if it still wont boot then you likely have a faulty hard drive or connector. Im guessing you dont have a backup of your assignment? You may need to take out the hard drive and have someone who knows what they are doing plug it into a desktop computer to retrieve your documents off it.

Hi, yes. Download a program called ERD Commander 2008 or 2005 and make a bootable CD. I think you will download an ISO so you need Nero to burn it on a disk. Then boot from it (on the toshiba 4300) and once you are using the ERD commander, look for system restore, and it's the same as the Windows system restore. Choose a day before you downloaded the Internet Explorer and see if it works. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free response today. Thank you :D

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.

Where are my settings? wireless network on 4300 series.PLEASE HELP ME!


You need to post more information on your laptop. What operating system is on it? Try tapping the F8 key when the computer is booting up to get it into safe mode and if you can get to safe mode then you can go to the system utilities and into the restore/backup menu of system tools and then restore the computer back to the last known good working point. You would then need to re-install the driver disk for the wireless and start again from there. Just pressing any old key in hopes of finding a solution is always a bad idea. So, post some more information about the operating system installed please. Dennis

Do you know ho to format a toshiba satellite pro 4300


What operating system are you using? If windows xp then just right click on the icon of the hard drive in "My Computer", select "format" and follow the instructions with all the default settings. Be aware that if you do this you will have to have your windows xp cd or a cd for a different operating system in order to be able to restart the laptop. You will have to reinstall the OS and then all the necessary drivers for the laptop and any software you are running. What exactly is causing you to wish to format? Usually there is an easier way to solve HDD problems. Please post back with more info
