Do a Windows Update. This will be on your Start Menu. If it isn't, thenclick on "All Programs", then "Accessories", then "System Tools". Thiswill take you to the proper page. Alternatively, try with Vista). It is very important that you get all availablesecurity updates. Other updates may less critical, but are stillrecommended.

Get rid of cookies. These are the little crumbs that are left behind onyour computer after you visit a website. Click on Start>> ControlPanel>>Internet Options. The second row down will say DeleteCookies, click on that. Click on Delete Temporary file; when the littlebox comes up that says "delete offline," you don't have to click onthat. Click on Delete temporary Files.

  1. Complete Disk Cleanup. After clicking on "Start", move your cursoron "All Programs", then up to "Accessories", then "System Tools". Clickon "Disk Cleanup" from the list that appears. Click the "More Options"tab at the top of the page, and select all three of the following:"Windows Components," "Installed Programs," and "System Restore". Cleanup all three by clicking on their respective tabs. You may want todelete all but your most recent system restore point as you probablydon't need the others.
  2. Defragment your computer.Defragmenting your computer moves all your files to where they aresupposed to be. You may want to download an independent defragmenter(e.g. Defraggler by Piriform). It is small, concise, powerful, and much quicker than the one distributed with Windows.
  3. Remove adware, malware, and spyware. Use a search engine to find"Lavasoft AdAware 2008". This will take you to a site to download thesoftware. Download and install this program. You can also use "SpybotSearch & Destroy." SpywareBlaster is a good preventative measure to use as well. All have easy-to-follow instructions. SUPERAnti-Spyware is yet another option. For malware, MBAM is yet another option.
  4. Install anti-virus software. Kaspersky, AVG, Bitdefender, Antivir, and Avast are free for personal use.
  5. Go to My Computer. Now go to tools at the top. Folder Options...View, then check the box "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then go toLocal Disk, Documents & Settings, Your Account, and deleteeverything in: My Recent Documents, Local Settings History (Do notdelete everything in local settings, just delete everything in thehistory folder of local settings) (and while in Local Settings) Deleteeverything in temporary internet files.

Toshiba satellite 1805 s204 "media test failure, check cable"....

Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck
