Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

I need a replacement hard drive with boot OS installed. Where and what do I buy?


First, are you still under warranty? If so you want to contact Toshiba.

You can get the replacement drive (Toshiba) for about $39 + shipping from newegg.com (They have other Toshiba models also). This drive should be available at other sites also.

This is just an example. I am assuming this is the drive model yours shipped with from looking at few sites, I cannot obviously be 100% sure without having looked at it:

As for the OS, Hopefully you have some recovery disks that shipped with the Unit or that you made. If not, you can contact Toshiba support.

http://recovery-disks.com/toshiba/toshiba-mini-notebook-nb205-n330bn.html

Looks like a set are $30 bucks. These DO NOT include a OS license, these are just the disks. You should already have the license.

System restore factory settings no cd


Toshiba has built in system recovery partition in your hard drive

Make sure to back up important files in your Laptop to usb or portable hard disk before doing this.

Warning: In using System Recovery you files will be deleted, your laptop will be back to its factory settings

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Not able to recover windows on toshiba l300


You need to get disk for Vista from anyone and then use your windows product key mentioned on the sticker on back of your Toshiba Laptop to install Vista again on your computer. But as you had already formatted it so all data is lost now.

How can i full recovery of my pc


You have a bad hard drive...probably. I hope it's a bad hard drive, the other possibility is a mobo and that's a whole lot pricier. Order this drive and swap it out with your current one. I can't be 100% sure, but in every laptop that I've seen with a write sector failure on reload, it results from a bad hd.

get this one.

NO HDD RECOVERY AREA !


first boot pc, then right before windows would start, press either F2 or F8,, I think it's F2, this will bring you to bios settings, look for bootup device options, Set cd-rom as first bootup device, then Hard drive as second device, Then save settings, insert recover cd, then restart pc, it will immediately boot up your recover cd or windows disc

REPLACING HEADS FROM LAPTOP HARD DRIVE


You will first need a 100% clean room and one of those white jumpsuits. Honestly you will definitely ruin your data if you try it yourself. Usually certified places charge 1000$ to 2000$ to do it. I know Ontrack Data Recovery is pretty reputable business if you want to get it done.

Recovery disks aren't Windows XP


Have you tried booting the laptop with the recovery disk already in the CD drive. If the disk doesnt register and start to spin press F12. Should give you option to boot from CD

Lost CD-Recovery


If you are speaking for your laptop, double click my computer and see if you have a D drive, most newer computers have a partition on the hard drive that has the recovery feature installed on the D drive. You would need to boot in the SAFE mode if possible and go to the D drive and run setup.exe. If this is not possible, you will have to purchase a new operating system CD and probably have to download drivers from Toshiba for your laptop. Good Luck - BPCS
