Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 laptop. I was using the recovery disc to reformat it (giving away as a gift). It went through the reformat, restarted, then said : media test failure: check cable Existing Intel boot agent There are no loose cables in this machine. So now I appear stuck. Help! Judi Grant

Driver toshiba satellite a45-s250 wireless network connector


Toshiba Support > Satellite A45-S250 Notebook PC > Atheros 802.11 a/b/g WiFi driver with Cisco WPA support for Windows XP and 2000,

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=555703&rpn=PSA40U&modelFilter=A45-S250&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

HOWEVER, it requires the Atheros Client Utility v2.4.2.18, to be installed. If it isn't installed on the laptop, this utility needs to be installed first. Then the Driver above.

Sorry mate...
It seems the the issue is with RAM.
A complete Hardware malfunction/ failure issue.
All you can do it is to replace the RAM that you have in ur laptop.
It will work for sure.

Toshiba a45 restore problem


Did the drive fail to boot initially and thats why you did a recovery unfortunately the hard drive has either failed and must have a damaged sector,or the recovery partition on the drive is stopping the format, which will more than likely be the problem.

The recovery disc you have won't be a full windows copy only a restore disc for your notebook, and it will look for a backup folder residing on another partition on your drive.

The only way to get a full format is to use a freinds copy of windows to format it and then install windows using your product key code on the underside of your notebook, unless you buy a copy in which case use the code provided
