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.

Is satelite 4300 wi fi capable? where can i buy battery of sateilte 4300 series?


If your computer has a USB-slot or a PCMCIA-slot, then it is capable of using a USB-to-wireless adapter stick, or a PCMCIA-to-wireless adapter-card.

Look on eBay -- find the model-number on the current battery, and search on eBay, being sure to search both "body" and "title" of eBay listings, to find "compatible" batteries.

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
