Question about Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 Notebook
I had a problem with my old hd being bad so I replaced it myself and now I am unable to install windows. I boot the computer up from the cd just fine and it starts loading up drivers and such but then it hits "Setup is Starting Windows" and suddenly the computer just hangs and nothing goes on from there. I've tried 2 different windows cd's so I don't know what's up. Plz help.
Problems like this for me often wind up being damaged processors or motherboards. If your laptop was severely overheated you could very well have stressed/damaged the processor or other discrete component on the system board. The only way to really isolate that kind of issue is to start replacing components with know good ones or take it to the local Toshiba shop. Another thing to try is booting to the Windows install CD and just letting it sit at one of the initial screens. When it locks up touch the bottom of the laptop (sample the entire bottom) with your palm. If the temperature is hot enough to make it unpleasant to the touch you may have a heat problem. If that?s the case the small cooling fan should be on at that point as well.

Check for Heat issues. Check the HDD, RAM and CPU Temperatures. Something might be causing an issue.
