Pull the battery out of it and let the computer alone for an hour or so to let it completely reset. Then turn it on again after reinserting the battery.

SOURCE: primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable

Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.

SOURCE: SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4: Hitachi-(S1)-ToshibLaptop

that will be expensive. i just went to microcenter and asked them, they said many hundreds of dollars just to look at it, then like 1600 for the cheapest recovery...

I would

1. stop using it immediately. (after an error like that, you may have only minutes of life left on it)
2. get a 25 dollar external enclosure to put the drive into. If it's IDE make sure you get an IDE enclosure, if SATA, get SATA compat. external enclosure.
3. get another computer, o rgo to a friends house, etc, and try to read your data on their computer after plugging in your hard drive inside the external enclosure.
4. if you can see it, rush like mad to copy the data thats important to your friends computer before the drive is 100% dead.

microcenter and similar stores have external hard drives at $129 dollars for a terabyte. BUY ONE! :-)

Good luck

PS: rumors go around that if you freeze the hard drive in your freezer for an hour, it helps get the data off, dont know if this is in fact true. Once the drive is dead, it's dead. You cant do much about it unless youre willing to part with a lot of money.

My toshiba is saying no bootable device?


There is no operating system on the hard drive.
You need to try and use a bootable windows disk to see if you can re-install windows.

Need to reboot my toshiba satellite L750D laptop with Windows 7


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Toshiba satellite l750-16l "a disk read error occurred"will a new hard drive fix


You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Hello
First thing you do is to see what hard disc installed in your laptop. You can check that by checking it in your bios system. To check in your bios system first turn off your computer then press delete while your laptop is booting up. Then you will see if there is a hard disk detected in your lap top if there is a detected hard drive this means you have a problem in your windows installed in your lap top.
There is also a reason why those message appear if the first boot of your laptop is the CD/DVD ROM. Check you CD/DVD ROM if there a CD inside this may the first on to read while the laptop booting up. Remove the cd inside your CD/DVD ROM. Then restart your laptop. Check your hard disk connector it may have some loose contact thats why your laptop did not recognize the hard disc.
Hope this can help keep on touch with fixya. Hope to hear some testimonial from you. . .

The system is not longer detecting your hard disk drive. You can try removing and re-seating the hard drive (Usually just a couple screws involved in removing the hard drive) and see if it detects. More than likely, the drive has failed, you will need to get a new drive and re-load Windows and all drivers and applications.
If still under warranty, contact Toshiba support

The laptop is not seeing any hard drive. remove the panel underneath (2 screws) and remove and refit the hard drive. If it still does not work then enter the bios by hitting the F2 key while booting and look at that page. under HDD model name and hdd serial number there should be information on the drive. If there is such info then the drive is being seen but cannot be accessed. Anyway it looks like the drive has had it. You will need to find your windows disk when you fit a new drive and reinstall windows.

Sounds like your HDD may have gone bad. What is the name/number of the blue screen error? Google it and see what it means. It may be possible to reinstall the operating system to the original factory settings using the recovery partition (this is usually accessed by tapping F10 or F11 while booting, although I read somewhere that you might be able to gain access to the Toshiba recovery partition by pressing "0" (zero) while the computer is powering on).

You can try to recover the computer to factory settings. If your hard drive has enough life left on it, you might be able to then clone it to a new drive. Drive Image XML is a free software that will do this for you (get that from www.download.com). This way, when you clone the drive, you will also clone the recovery partition, so you don't lose that option. Once you have a new hard drive up and running, use the Toshiba Utility to make System Recovery Disks for the future.

One more thing: If you have recently upgraded/replaced the RAM - this might be your problem. Put the original RAM back in and see if the computer boots. If so, you found the culprit.

Need help for Toshiba Satellite A60


You have to order replacement disks from Toshiba - probably about $30 for a set.

If you are getting errors with installing just plain XP, you probably have a hardware problem - Probably a bad hard drive or stick or RAM. Try pulling one stick out (if you have 2) and reinstalling XP.

You can get hard drive testing software here:

Get the ISO download on that page. If you need to know how to burn the ISO to CD properly look here:
