Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
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.

1) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory 2) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
If that option is NOT available then you will need to Order CDs from Toshiba - http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/System-Recovery-and-Recovery/Recovery-media/m-p/9148#U9148

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.
