Need diagnostics disk (floppy image) referenced in service manual

Toshiba's site doesn't seem to offer the diagnostics disk for download, although they make copious references to it in the maintenance manual. Also, a wiring diagram for the PCMCIA "wraparound card" (loopback tester) would be extremely helpful. I'm capable of wiring my own if given the appropriate data.

I can't find the bios flash instructions .how do you flash the bios on my toshiba a35s159

You should check the Toshiba WEB site for instructions to how to upgrade (flash) your BIOS, if you make a mistake you may not be able to repair or recover from your mistake.

I have done BIOS upgrades on a few computers.
If your Toshiba has a floppy drive and you can boot up from this floppy drive then the BIOS upgrade needs to be downloaded to a boot floppy. Then boot up from this floppy and run the BIOS upgrade program. When completed, remove the floppy disk and boot up your laptop.

I forgot the password for my Toshiba laptop is there a way i can override the password to get back on it? PS: I'm using my desktop right now.

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (v080526 - May 2008) Petter Nordahl-Hagen has written a Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista offline password editor:
  • This is a utility to (re)set the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista system, by modifying the encrypted password in the registry's SAM file.
  • You do not need to know the old password to set a new one.
  • It works offline, that is, you have to shutdown your computer and boot off a floppy disk or CD. The boot-disk includes stuff to access NTFS partitions and scripts to glue the whole thing together.
  • Works with syskey (no need to turn it off, but you can if you have lost the key)
  • Will detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled out user accounts!
Caution: If used on users that have EFS encrypted files, and the system is XP or later service packs on W2K, all encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be recovered unless you remember the old password again! Download links:
To write these images to a floppy disk you'll need RawWrite2 which is included in the Bootdisk image download. To create the CD you just need to use your favorite CD burning program and burn the .ISO file to CD.

System recovery disk will not load vista on my Toshiba Satellite A215. I get following message the instruction @0x77d62613 referenced memory @0x00d2188a. DMI.EXE error: 03-EEEE-0000

Ohhh not good. and you may not have needed a reload. Try removing and replacing the RAM, if issue remains, try replacing RAM with "known good" ram. Ram does fail. If still no go, time for a bench diagnostic by a technician.

My acer aspire 5002wlmi does not detect my hard drive during windows xp install,but hard drive can be detected and be access when i connect it to a desktop using it as xternal,..what seems to be the...

You can slipstream the storage controller drivers from the floppy disk image you download from Acer's web site into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite.
You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.

You can download nLite at the following link:
After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.

The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD:

I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.

Recovery Error 10E90C0017

Most of my research on this problem has concluded that your hard drive is dying, you should maybe look into running a diagnostic on the hard drive to see you get.
This is Seagates diagnostics tool, you will also need Net2 Framework 2 to run this utility.

Computer will not read floppy disk

You have a bad floppy drive. In this system you almost have to gut it to replace the floppy drive, although used floppy drives should be pretty cheap on eBay. If this is a one-time thing, a USB floppy drive should do the job just as well.
