Toshiba tecra problem: disk i/o error:status = 00000400 ntdetect failed

This indicates you may be experiencing a pretty severe hard drive failure. I would recommend replacing your hard drive ASAP, and in the meantime, use your Windows OS disk to repair the windows installation to access your system again. No worries, done properly this process does not erase your files, only your system files that Windows uses to function.

Good Luck

Laptop won't start

Majority of the time it's the motherboard. You can try booting the computer with the battery out and also try reseatting the memory. Other than that, there isn't much you can do. If neither one of those solutions works, then you can safely assume it's the motherboard and it will need to be replaced in order to get the laptop running again.

My laptop making cracking noises.

Is the noise when your opening and closing the laptop? How about when moving the laptop around? Is it a fairly loud noise from the hard drive area? What about the fan/s? See the article listed here for suggestions:

Hello. The wifi switch should be on as indicated by the light beside it. Please press on Start-Connect to  - then select a wireless network then click Connect. If you are asked for the password, please enter it. Click on Open Network and Sharing Center to check if there is a red x mark between the network and the internet or between the network and the computer icons. If there is none, please launch your internet explorer. Hope this works. Thanks.

Sound problem

motherboard - 51/MIC 36 10C 51/MIC 36 10C

I have searched but im unable to find a part number for the internal speakers.

Before you replace the motherboard, I would check to see if the same problem exists with exeternal speakers first. If it does then it probably will be the motherboard at fault
