    Make sure you have no disks in any of the drives (3.5 floppy, CD-ROM, etc).



    If you don't have any disks in any of your drives, then you have got a hard drive problem. Go into the "setup" it is referring to and verify it can even see your hard disk drive.

How to reformat a window xp


first nsert the Windows XP disk, and turn off your computer...Turn on your computer...A screen will come up during the boot and tell you to press any key to boot from CD, (if not you will need to change the start up sequence in the BIOS). Press any key you like....Second, you are asked which file system to use, the FAT Filesystem or NTFS Filesystem. NTFS Filesystem is the newer and faster one, so use that. FAT would also limit you to small hard disks..It might take a while. Once everything is loaded, there will be a few options on the screen. The one you want says 'To set up Windows XP, press enter.' So select it and press enter.It might take a while. Once everything is loaded, there will be a few options on the screen. The one you want says 'To set up Windows XP, press enter.'

Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

Wont boot up,black screen.message on screen says,invalid partitio


When you power up your computer, the system examines the master partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by an incorrect or missing active partition.
To resolve this issue, consider the following steps:
  • Boot up the computer with a Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select the correct bootup device before you do that.
  • At the DOS command prompt, type in: fdisk
  • Question - Do you wish to enlarge large disk support (Y/N) ?
  • Enter: Y
  • Now to check for active partition, enter: 2
  • Look under the Status column. The active partition is usually assigned to the drive which contains your operating system.
  • If there's no active partition set, enter the number of the partition to make active
This must solve your problem.

No operating system found


If the error message says "No operating system found" it is most likely a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
Reseat the hard disk, if this doesn't work you need to test the hard disk another way. Remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the the 4115c laptop.
If the hard disk is not detected then the hard disk is faulty. You need to install a new hard disk, install Windows and the laptop's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop again.
