Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
When powering on the laptop it goes through the post screen arrives at the windows loading page but will not get past that. when attempting to wipe the hard drive it freezes on searching for previous versions of windows
Works fine with a live cd though, no bad sectors found on chk dsk ran checks on memory which is fine. So is it motherboard or hdd
It sounds like your hdd. If you have access to another computer, download a program called SeaTools for DOS, from the Seagate website:
This program will make a boot disc that will check ALL sectors on the drive. If bad sectors are found, you will be given the option to fix.
Let me know how you get on.
