      Power off the Toshiba (with the recovery disc still loaded inside the optical drive).

    • 3 Hold down the "F12" key, at the same time hit the "Power" button to turn the system back on. You don't have to hold down the Power button, but keep holding the F12 key.

      Release the "F12" key when the" In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA" screen is displayed. This will open up the BIOS.

      Change the boot order by using the arrow keys to select "CD/DVD ROM" icon in the menu. The Toshiba will now boot from the recovery disc and restore the system. Follow any additional on-screen instructions.

I am sick of my Toshiba Satellite computer crashing several times a day. It does not appear to be software related.


Hi

Try to run SCAN DISC for automatically fixing errors.

Or try this solution

Go to START
Choose ACCESSORIES
Right click on DOS command prompt and choose RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR ( if ask for password put the password)
The type SFC /SCANNOW and press enter.

If does not help you, I suggest you reformat your operating system. But make sure you have the Hardware device installer CD, Operating system installer CD and a back up storage device to back up your files.

Here is on how to reinstall your operating system.

The HD on my Toshiba A135-S4827 crashed. I bought


I see a couple of possibilities here.
  1. The replacement drive is not the same size as the original and the wizard is looking for a drive that size.
  2. There is also a possibility that the error is causes by bad RAM (0A-0543-0000 is a read write error) if you have more than one RAM module try the wizard with one module at a time, see if error is isolated to one or the other module or slot
  3. The Restore CD is dirty/scratched of has a flaw in the original write
  4. The optical drive is defective or dirty
So things you can try:
  1. Clean the media you are trying to restore from.
  2. Clean the optical drive with a drive cleaning CD.
  3. Swap Ram as suggested, replace defective if necessary (OS install is about most RAM intensive process you run on a system)
  4. Try a manual Windows install from a Windows CD not a image restore cd
  5. Try a drive the same size as the original

Toshiba laptop L25-D119 crashed after several system restores...


You can use any windows XP cd and boot from that to run a repair. You don't need the Restore Cds unless the problem can't be fixed by the XP cd. You could also try booting into safe mode if you can't find a cd. Let me know if you need more help.

Toshiba A55 S1064


Sounds like either 1) bad disk or 2) bad motherboard. Replacing the harddrive and restoring using the restore cd is valid and will work as long as the disk is as large or larger than your current harddisk - Fortunately it is also the cheaper of the two options.

You may lose access to the free space on a larger harddisk as the restore cd may restore the old partition information as well as the data.

Missing Operating System error


your bought compag computer is a new one , because that error is appears only if the hard drive or the harddisk is defective or damage. Your installation of windows xp is finished totally because sometimes the error is appears because the system installation is not finished and the os system cannot read. try to re install again the windows and delete the old partitions and create again if the problem is the same even there is no error in the installation until it's finished i say that the problem is in the harddisk. Maybe the harddisk develop a bad sector in the master boot record of the hardrive

Toshiba 135-S2246 processor damaged


Hi

First of All Usual meaning of crash related to Operating System which is Software. If you are talking about the Operating system Crash its not something to worry. Most effective way is to perform full system recovery by Using Toshiba Recovery and Applications DVD which comes together. When you put the disk in and restart by pressing F12 boot option will appear when you choose CD/DVD a menu will appear. With that menu you can perform windows system restore also Toshiba full system recovery (it will set everything to factory default).

Good Luck

Toshiba satellite A60 no boot


We can only assume that because the cd drive operates then the motherboard is operating in part, although, the southbridge chip may be damaged, as the northbridge works memory etc. Maybe it is that the processor is fried as there is no fan and the system then shuts down. Toshiba are probably half way there with the answer, unless; they investigated further and decided it was not the processor but the motherboard.
