I want Recovery for toshiba satellite a665-s6056


If you made recovery media for the laptop then you can recover the laptop using the CD or DVDs you created when you bought it. Failing that Toshiba may have included a recovery utility so try pressing R on boot or F10/F11.

If they haven't, contact Toshiba and you should be able to buy recovery DVDs for your laptop.

Downloaded The Recovery CD's Went To Boot Up Laptop, Realtek Fast Ethernet Network Atdapter come's Up, Then Media Test Failure,Check Cable. Keep's Repeating, Even When I Shut It Down & Reboot It.


Hello sir, hi, this error could be several, so check this one by one:
  1. make sure your pc boots on the hard drive, not floppy, or other boot devices.
  2. If you are setting up windows boot from the CD drive.
  3. check your HARD DRIVE, this may be due to failure, format it using a low level format utility like disk manager.
  4. re-seat Hard Drive cables. use another cable if necessary.

Toshiba satellite 1805 s204 "media test failure, check cable"....


Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck

Just go through it and delete everything left behind.

if you want to do a complete format and reinstall then you can use any A100 system disc (borrow one?) download one from the link below.
