Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook

1 Answer

System Restore My Toshiba Satellite M35X-S329 Laptop was having terrible blue screen problems so I decided to replace the hard drive to try and correct the problem. I installed the new hard drive but continue to get an error message I received before: For Realtek RTL 8139(x)/8130/810x PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326) PXE E-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM The other problem is that my Recovery Disk that came with the laptop is giving me a ''Wrong Machine'' Error even though it is the correct disk. Is there anyway to correct the Realtek error before running the restore disk? Thank you!

    Thank. I just tried what you suggested. Went through the steps and it still gives me the Wrong Machine error.

  • RyPat Jan 16, 2009

    Thanks again. I just discovered a tid bit of information that would have helped. I just contacted a local repair shop that had worked on the computer a few years ago and they informed me that they had replaced the system board and that is why the original disk would not work.

It seems that your computer is not booting from DVD-ROM drive nor hard disk, but is trying to establish a network setup of the operating system.

You have to go to BIOS settings and correct these preferences by making your hard disk the first boot device. Of course that would be a solution if you have operating system installed on it. If there is no operating system installed on the hard disk, you will need to install it. In this case, your first boo device would DVD-ROM or CD-ROM, whichever available.

    "Wrong Machine" error might indicate that Recovery Disk will work only with the original hard disk. Since you put the new one, Recovery Disk does not recognize it.

    Blue screens of death are not indicator of a hardware failure. You should put the old disk back (unless you're absolutely sure it's faulty) and then try to run Recovery Disk setup. In case of blue screens of death, re installation of the system (or even just a repair) is a solution.

    Then you should ask them to get you another Recovery Disk for free, so you don't have to buy an operating system.

Most likely your hard drive is either defective or infected. Best approach would be to save your data and reinstall your operating system. If it still occurs then the hard drive is the problem.

I have a toshiba satellite L645D how can I format it to the factory settings like it just came out of the box.


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1.Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

2.Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

3.Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

4.Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

5.Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

6.Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Cannot start my start laptop its as soon as I put the password blue screen appears crash dump cannot start


Would be nice to know error code on the blue screen.That is pointing on the problem-and solution.Anyway, you can try system restore.On boot,computer shows start-up options, and among them is "System Restore".Hit that button and try to restore OS in earlier point of time.Or try Safe mode.Run-msconfig-enter-system restore.To be honest, from my bad experience, blue screen on boot is almost always connected to dying hard drive. Good luck,and keep us posted.

Toshiba satellite pro m35x-s329 cuts off instanly . I hear 3 beeps then 1. It has new battery. I read several problem. Sent it to Toshiba and they said it was fixed. BS Same problem. Any clues?


correct boot sequence cannot be carried out possibly because of hard drive/hardwarefailure.take your harddrive out and tap it --look at boot sequence also by pressing F2 whilst booting ,if you can,here you will see the first few bios pages.navigate using the "tab" or arrow keys.save and exit of restore to factory defaults--good luck!

My toshiba laptop got a blue screen and can't restart


Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.

Toshiba Satellite M35X-S329 freezing problems...


I have never heard of anyone being able to fix a bad motherboard other than to solder on a new DC jack which is not what your problem is. You should call Toshiba and ask them if this is a known issue and maybe they will fix it if there is an extended warranty.

I just responded to this. But I would also suggest that you check the memory on the laptop. It may be causing the Stop errors.

PROBLEM WITH MY SATELLITE M35X-S111


Check to see if your Display is bad or Video is bad..
To Do This....
Plug an External Monitor into the laptop serial port..Boot the laptop and use the function key plus F5 to boot to external screen... If you see your PC running on the external screen it is a Video card/chip problem.....

Do your lights run ..the Power Light/Battery light/ hard drive light??? Do you hear the hard drive spinning??
