    are the cds that you are trying to read cd-r's or are they retail cd's, it might be worth running a drive cleaner on your dvd drive

Hello, my satellite l45-s7423 has a "blue screen" when i try to turn it on. i have misplaced the recovery disk. what can i do to fix this issue?


While the system is starting up keep pressing F8 (function key 8). When you see a black screen with bunch of options select "Last Know Good Configuration". Let me know if that fixes the issue.

It is possible that it is a HDD failure . I had a customer already today with the same problem . we end up changing the HDD . to be sure try to take out the HDD plug it into external case and plug it into another PC and see the results.
