Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

I always have failure to boot and have beep sounds. Already installed asus update v6.10.02, still shows overclocking failed on start up and requests to configure BIOS. My system includes: inno3D-FX5500...


1-Does your computer show any sign of response after power button press?
2-Is your power cable properly connected and have main power switched on both your power supply unit and the wall plug?
3-Is the 20/24-pin ATX power connector has been connected between your motherboard and power supply?
4-Can The standby power LED (Green blue) light up continuously after the mains power is connected? (Note: Both flashing and off are no good here)

Fix 1

(1) Isolate The power going into your system ( i.e. connect your system to the wall plug directly, without sharing the power with any other devices via power extension cable.)
(2) Check if the power supply and power cable functions correctly, and have the input of your power supply set to the correct position (either 100/110V or 220/240V, depending on your country)
(3) Please try replacing your power supply.

Fix 2

1. No POST

1.1 Please clear CMOS to have a try (refer to motherboard manual for details)

1.2 If the problem still persists, please contact your retailer for a check


2. There is error message during POST: BIOS ROM checksum error. Detecting floppy drive A media... Insert system disk and press enter

2.1 If the support CD supplied with motherboard is available

2.1.1 Please restart system and put support CD into optical drive, then the system will recover BIOS automatically using CrashFree utility

2.2 If the support CD supplied with motherboard is not available

2.2.1 Prepare a formated floppy disk, then unzip the BIOS file downloaded from ASUS website into the floppy disk.

2.2.2 Please restart system and insert the floppy disk into floppy drive, then the system will recover BIOS automatically using CrashFree utility
2.3 If it is not helpful after the troubleshooting as the steps 2.1 or 2.2, please clear CMOS( referring to the manual introduction)

Fix 3

Please try the latest BIOS. I recommend you to use AFUDOS to update BIOS. You need to unzip it to get the ROM file.

You should use the command as follows:

AFUDOS /i[biosname]

or, afudos /i A:\BIOSNAME.rom(if the BIOS file is in the floppy disk)

You can store your BIOS into a floppy disk or a hard disk with FAT format. Then, you will be able to use AFUDOS to access the BIOS ROM file.

If it is not convenient for you to use DOS and AFUDOS, you can try to use EZ Flash. You can save the BIOS file into a flash disk then boot the system and enter BIOS, then you can update your BIOS by EZ Flash which is in the BIOS Tools page. Please load the default settings in BIOS after you have succeeded updating BIOS.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Failed to boot, i cant even get to the bios! only the fan running, led(green) and (red) indicator doesn't even light.


Dear Client, unpluged all the data cables, power cables or wires, bios cell and RAMs. Everything should be unpluged from the motherboard for two hours and then reassmbled. It will work properly but when you reassembled it just plug with the follwing devices.

* Power Cables
* Data Cables
* Bios cell
* Processor + Fan
* RAMs

Do not attach CD-Rom or Hard Disk, just turn on the computer without Hard Disk and CD-Rom and try to enter in bios setup. I assure your problem will be solve. Now you can attach the CD-Rom and then try to boot up from the CD-Rom and in the last you should try to attach Hard-Disk. I hope you will do it step by step and get success.


Good Luck

It doesn't boot from hard disk


can you still go to CMOS SETUP?
how many beep and beep long of your pc while booting?
if you can still go to cmos setup try delete all partition using your windows setup then install a fresh copy of windows. if there are no partition found means theres a problem with your hardisk try put your hard disk to secondary if in primary or use different data cable might be the problem if the data cable is not the problem see the power supply of your hard disk is fine try swap the power suppply of your hard disk and cd-rom drive or extra power supply if power supply is not problem .
Buy a Brand New Harddisk might fix it your hard disk might have plenty of bad sector thats why doesn't boot anymore.
Hope i help you out ^)^

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

Hi all was ok in till i removed my hard drie affter i shut down the system and turn it off i removedthe hard drive now system will not boot back up it will power on but wont boot up ive unpluged everything...


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend try to do this things. first i suggest to change new ide or sata cable.if still persist.try the following:
Boot order: Traditionally, a computer is set to boot first from the floppy drive, and then from the main hard drive (Drive C). This means that the computer will check the floppy drive first for boot files. If there is no disk in the floppy drive, the computer will then go to the hard drive to look for boot files. That is why if you leave a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive and try to boot up, you'll get an error message such as "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart." or "Non-system disk or disk error." This can be changed to pretty much any order, including CD and DVD drives. It is useful when installing Windows on a new or just-formatted computer to set the computer to boot first from a CD-ROM drive, and then insert the Windows installation CD-ROM into that drive. This saves you from having to use boot floppies that might or might not come with the Windows CD-ROM. Good luck.

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk


Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
