Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

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

i went too the Tioshiba site, and found a link for the specs .. i was not able to get the manual for it as i dont know exactly what model you have -00, 03, 38, etc..

My Tashiba Lap Top a45-s150 is corrupt. WINDOWS/SYSTEMS32/CONFIG/SYSTEM. I bought a recovery disc but my computer only goes to this black screen. Help?


For that you need to repair your windows.
Insert recovery disk into cd/dvd rom then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boor with recovery disk follow the procedure and choose Repair option for repair windows.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a satellite U300 toshiba computer and i'm on the boot menu


Hi,
If your just wanting to boot into Windows then choose 1. HDD Toshiba.
If your wanting to reinstall the operating system with your recovery disks then you will need disk 1 in the CD drive and when the menu comes up choose 3. CD/DVD.



Regards.

I dont have recovery CD for my laptop


Being that you don't have the recovery cd, I would probably do the following (in this order):

1. Do a System Recovery (go to Start > Help and Support > type in System Recovery in the search field > look for Run System Recovery Wizard)

2. If the above didn't fix my problem, then I would try to determine if it was a hardware issue (bad RAM, fan, processor, etc) or if it was definitely a software issue (operating system is kaput, virus, etc...)

3. Contact Toshiba and find out how much it would cost to get another Recovery CD.

4. If it costed more than $100 dollars (and you're a little computer inclined) then I would buy myself a fresh Windows XP Home Edition OEM version (runs about $90 if not less)

BUT... before sticking in that cd, make sure that you download the device drivers or back up your device drivers for your system (network driver, graphics drivers, chipset drivers).. once you've backed up those things onto a cd or disk, then I would go ahead and put in a fresh copy of Windows XP and reformat the computer.

Once thats done, you can put in that back cd you made and have the computer find the drivers on your disc when it says "New Hardware Found..." and just make sure you have it search your disc drive.

IF it doesn't cost much to get a Recover CD from Toshiba, then by all means, get it and put that bad boy in. Of course, when formatting anything, back up your files that you need (address book, documents, etc) and then reformat with the CD.
