Only option is to get BIOS to recognize the hard drive. No going forward without it. You could try loading the BIOS defaults. Saving, and rechecking.

SOURCE: Toshiba portege r500 keyboared short cut keys not working

drivers wont help it seems to me you might have a broken line sometimes common in second hand laptops where keyboards have been removed time after time its a plastic ribbon cable which slots into an interface socket on the mainboard,you could get somebody to check that the cable hasnt been pulled out of the slot,or if liquid was spilled then a replacement keyboard is then the way to go.

If you didn't get a maintenance disk with the PC contact the manufacturer's support. They sometimes put a backed up copy on the hard drive itself, if this is the case they will be able to tell you how to access it =)

Toshiba Portege R500 hangs when starting up.I have to shut it down again and then start it up for it to work properly.It has windows 7 installed in it


Perhaps you need to disable some of your startup programs. You have ugraded to Win 7? Has this been happening due to the Win 7 upgrade? In Device Manager are ALL the devices working? No unknown devices? Any graphic driver issues?

Installing XP on Toshiba Portege R500 Notebook


Guys, if you have the genuine XP CD, please download the Storage Driver from Intel and slipstream it into your version of XP CD. You can also slipstream Service Packs into it as well.
Personally I hate Vista so much. It really brings out the angry devil in me.
By the way, the best and easiest way to slipstream is to install and use nLite http://www.nliteos.com/
Let me know if you want help on installing XP on R500 (I build it a few days ago, but regret to update the BIOS to version 1.06 as I lost the Ctrl key on it).
To get to the BIOS, press and hold the Esc key then Power button.
