Toshiba laptop L450/L450D satellite won,t reboot from hard disk drive

Try F12, F2 or F1 on power up to get into the boot menu.
Once in there change the boot sequence to try booting from the CD/DVD drive first and hard drive second. There are various options to download a rescue disk based on Linux on the internet. They download as .iso files which you save onto a CD/DVD.

You need to do this on another computer connected to the internet.

My favourite is KNOPPIX as it is a windows type GUI desktop. you can then try to repair you hard drive. Knoppix will exist in RAM only as long as the computer is turned on, so it wont damage your computer.

I installed a new hard drive in my dell inspiron laptop service tag #4360rf1 and it won't let me reinsstall the operating system i get a no bootable sector on harddrive error

When you boot up the laptop press F10 to bring up an list of devices to boot up from, select the CD drive.
Go into the BIOS setup and to the Boot start up and move the CD to the top as the first boot device with the hard disk as the second device.
Your laptop will now boot uo with the Windows Vista installation CD.

I bought a laptop from ebay but every time i try to turn on the computer i get this media test fail and the screen shows error message non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready

Hello, the 'media test failure' message just means it's not got a network connected to it as it's trying all boot options to try to find a valid boot file somewhere (anywhere!)
Either you've got a floppy disk in the drive as all computers will attempt to boot from the A: drive if there's a floppy disk in it. Just eject it and try booting again.
Another possibility is that the previous owner of the laptop didn't want any of their data that may have been on it from getting misused, so erased the hard drive.
In this case, you'll have to buy a copy of the Operating System you wish to use, go to the HP support website and download all the drivers onto a memory stick and do a new install, which isn't a bad idea anyway as at least you know it'll be free of nasties and viruses.
p.s. the hp website is
just answer the country q?, type in your model, and select download drivers.

Laptop unable to connect to Internet

Assuming you are using Windows XP, try the following: Conntact the maker of your Laptop and find out how to remove their brand of wireless software so your computer defaults to the Windows built in wireless software.

1. Winsock Reset:
- Click the Start button and then click on Run.
- In the Run window command line type in CMD and press enter, or click OK.
- A black command prompt window will come up.
- At the command prompt type NETSH and press Enter.
- A NETSH command prompt will appear
- Type WINSOCK RESET then press Enter. It will display the following message:
Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog.
You must restart the machine in order to complete the reset.
2. Remove and reinstall the wireless adapter:
- Click on Start, the right click on My Computer and choose Manage.
- In the computer management window that opens, on the left side, choose Device Manager.
- Look for the network adapter heading in the list on the right. Click on the + next to network adapters.
- Right click on the wireless adapter listed under network adapters, choose uninstall. It may ask if you are sure you want to remove it, say yes.
- Close that window and restart the computer. As it reboots, it will reinstall the driver we just deleted. When it is completely start up, try your wireless connection.

Lg r 405 will not recognize wireless signal from lynksys wrt350n

hi i would suggest to access your routers setuppage and set the channel to channel 11.

make sure also if your wireless network is secured, type the correct key those things are case sensitive.

to access the routers setuppage go to a computers that is connected to your linksys router (wired) then launch IE on the address bar type is the routers ip) then it will ask you for username and password for the username dont type any thing for the password type admin.

when your on the setuppage click on wireless tab. while on the wireless page set the channel to 11.

after that click apply or save settings on the page.

then after that try to connect to your wireless network on your laptop.

for further help you can call linksys hot line 1800-3267114
they will surely help you with this.

hope this helps.
