Question about Toshiba Satellite P30 Notebook
While trying to reformat the hard drive using the recovery disc, the battery power went off at the beginning stage of reformatting. Now, when I start the computer normally, it freezes at the phrase " INVALID PARTITION TABLE" then it shut down itself. I owned this P30 for about 3 years. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
You may need to take the hard drive out and find a portable USB hard drive case to put it in ...if it is 3 years old it is probably an IDE drive ...newer ones are SATA drives....then hook it to another computer and and check it ...you can also reformat it in the portable case on another computer then put it back in the laptop and then reinstall windows......if it isn't recognized by the other computer then it probly wrecked the hard drive somehow..
Hope this helps
