Question about Toshiba Satellite L20-S310TD Notebook
Installed sp3 and my laptop since this moment doesnt want to start. it only shows "operating system not found". i think its a wrong sata driver, but i looked for it almost everywere and i cant find. i want to uninstall sp3, but system doesnt want to start. maybe recovery console or something? i know, that sp3 made a backup of system files, but i don''t know how to recover them at all, when my system is broken.
I would start by popping in the XP disk and getting in to recovery console (R at the first screen). Once there, run these commands:
This will rewrite the boot sector and master boot record on your drive. The "operating system not found" typically only happens when the boot sector is messed up. If that works and Windows loads, click Start -> Run and type
Click System on the left pane and, on the right side, click Source. Go to the "D" section and see if you have disk errors. It's a good bet that if your boot sector gets compromised, you're hard drive is about to crash and disk errors are being logged.
