Question about Toshiba Qosmio Computers & Internet
Try replacing the RAM, or pulling half of it if it has 2 sticks. Try each stick on it's own. If that works, replace the bad RAM stick, or replace both sticks. If it only has one stick of RAM, see if you can borrow a stick from a local shop. Take your RAM in so they can match the size, speed and voltage. Other shops may offer to let you buy a stick, and refund you if it doesn't solve your problem.

That error usually indicates one of two things, your file system is corrupt and the master boot record or partition tables have corrupted.... or, in light of a liquid being spilled, some possibly got into the laptop. I'm not sure right off the top of my head, but I think the hard drive has an access door on the bottom. Which you can remove a couple screws to remove the cover. I would visually inspect under that cover, and other covers if any while your at it, to check for any signs that liquid got in it.

set the bios/cmos to boot first of your CD drive. get your support discs and restore to original. your hard drive OS has failed and needs to be re-installed. the problem maybe is that when you do that option you will get all your data erased. your solution to that since you can still get the data on the drive when used as external is to back it up. then full restore your system.
if you dont have your restore kit, you can use your Windows OS to fix it, repair option when you boot from CD.

SOURCE: Laptop will not boot up
THis error is telling you that there's a problem with yoru laptop hard driver where the operating system is installed that's why it cannot boot, so the best thing to do here is to replace the hard drive then after that , if you have important file on that old hard drive from your laptop you can buy a hard drive enclosure and make the old hard drive a external drive and that way you should be able to retrive some of your data that is save on it.........
Hope that helps.......

You've probably got to have your computer configured to boot from a rescue CD before it can recognize and install the new harddrive. Also make sure that there is an operating system installed on the hard drive . If not it will not do anything until you install one. This will be automatic if you install a new XP or Vista DVD into the computer's DVD drive the reboot.

you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
(note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
hope this helps
