Toshiba C650D will not boot up

Good afternoon, I have a Toshiba Satellite C650D. I had the hard drive replaced last August under warranty. My warranty ran out December 1st. This is my son's computer and it will not boot up, (again). It goes to BOOTMGR is Missing. The recovery flash drive we have does not work. When I put the flashdrive in, I get no os entry. There does not appear to be any hidden partitions. F8, F1, and 0 will not access the hard drive. I wanted to try a clean install to see if that would fix it. I have downloaded the Windows 7 ios to a new flash drive. I have not been prompted for my product key. I have also down loaded the Windows usb tool, but cannot get it to interact with the ios. Should I just order a new hard drive and get the recovery disks from Toshiba or does someone know how to help me avoid that? Any help would be appreciated.

There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source. This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from. make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat ribbon 40 pin IDE it will be the fist to fail Make sure all power and data leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs Data and Power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error. also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS Restart your computer and enter BIOS mode. On most computers this is done by pressing the Delete ot F2 key but will vary depending on your computers bios other keys Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc , ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc) , Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc).

Scroll over to the "Hard Drives" tab, and make sure your computer has the hard drive assigned to be on. Often during BIOS you can select auto-detect or change options with your hard drive to make sure Windows can recognize it. Once you've selected your desired options, continue to boot. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Acer aspire 5532, windows 7,

Just find a generic Win 7 install disk (borrow one from a friend) and use it to install - the key for it should be on the sticker. This will fix everything else, including the botched install problems. Later download and install its drivers yourself from here

SOURCE: wiping and re-installing OS on

Verify in the computer CMOS, that the first boot option is your DVD/CDROM unit. To enter the CMOS turn on your computer and press the F2 or Delete key of your keyboard. The key change depending the computer manufacturer. Normally the computer show for some seconds in the monitor the correct key to enter to the CMOS or BIOS.
When you enter to the CMOS, look for the Boot Order section and adjust it.

Help my laptop isn't working


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Toshiba c650d not booting up


Most typical reason for Toshiba laptop not booting up is a defective hard drive.
If you have a Windows disc that came with your laptop, then find an inexpensive hard drive at a retailer that enables you to return the hard drive within 14 days......and replace the hard drive. Make SURE the hard drive is a 2.5 inch model and that it is a direct replacement for your notebook. (Call the vendor's tech support if necessary to ensure compatibility).

If you are able to reload Windows, then your problem is fixed. If not, return the hard drive and take your notebook in for a repair estimate.

Toshiba satellite notebook error 10-FC06-000D system windows vista


When dealing with this error (10-FC06-000D) message in Toshiba unit is very comment in the L300 series, I don't know if Toshiba is using cheaper hard drives or what but I see a lot of them with the same problem. If you have a Toshiba unit got to their website to check if your unit is still under manufacture warranty if it is you have some options send it to Toshiba direct they should cover the shipping but I'm not to sure, or take it in to any Best Buy or Future shop stores with your proof of purchase and they will send it out for you. This is a hardware problem that is related to the hard drive, I wiped the hard drive and all it's boot records still unable to reinstall the OS OK, I finally decided to use a test hard drive to reinstall the OS worked fine so there is something wrong with the hard drive that most likely would need to be replaced

I have a laptop Toshiba satellite A30. I have a black screen and some text on it like: PXE-E61 MediaTest Failure PXE-M0F Exiting PXE ROM and it goes continiously, I can't go any further. When I was loaded...


media test failure means that your boot drive has failed ie your hard drive has failed to boot....could be one of a number of reasons
1 hard drive connection could be loose - try taking out the hard drive and reinstalling it
2 the boot sector on the hard drive is corrupt or damaged - try booting off a windows disk and running chkdsk or fixboot command
3 partition table is corrupt - try booting off windows cd and running chkdsk /p from command prompt
4 Hard drive has failed - if machine is still under warranty return for repair if not install new hard drive and reload op system from recovery disks

Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot


Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location
