    I had the same problem so here is what I found out, Start the computer and push F12. You will see a cursor in the top left and just keep holding it down. A screen will appear with 4 or 5 icons at the bottom. Look closely and you will see a cursor underneath one of them. Use the arrow key to move cursor under the cd icon. The icons look like a hard drive, a cd, a floppy and cant remember what the other one looks like. Anyway once that is done hit enter and it should work. Also if it had a bios update then you might download a file from Toshiba called a DMI string I think. Anyway it is called dmi.tos. From there you need to burn a formatted floppy or cd with a program that will burn an ISO file. What happens is that computer thinks it is not a 5005 so the restore disk wont load either. once the dmi.tos is installed the restore disk will install. Restore disks contain software from the factory that was installed at the factory and some that might not be installed..You can actually go to the toshiba site to get most of the necessary files to get yourself going. let me know what happens, I can send you files or make you a copy of the restore disks.

When the computer starts to boot up does it ask you to boot to CD/DVD?
1. If so put the xp disc in the drive and turn on the power when it asks you to boot to CD/DVD press any key. This will start the installation process.
2. If it does not ask you to boot to CD/DVD you will have to go into Bios and change the boot priority to boot to disk drive first. save the settings and do the first step over again

    Thanks for trying! This is how you would put an operating system on any computer. I can see you don't appreciate me taking time to help you. Maybe someone else can explain it better..

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 boots over and over and over non stop


It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 Secure Digital Card Slot problem


Hi there
Take a close look inside the card slot (you may need a torch/flashlight) look to see if any of the brass pins are bent or out of position, if they are use a very small flat head screwdriver to gently push them back into place.
If all looks fine with the slot and there are no foreign objects inside your card maybe faulty.
Also i suggest the you check the drivers are installed, check this in device manager.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Changing BIOS priority on toshiba satelite 5005-s504


as i recall, ntloader is software for the OS load, after hardware boot, so you already passed up your chance to enter bios, which you realize. i used to have a toshiba laptop, was it the delete key or F2 to enter BIOS? try delete, and make sure youre pressing it from restart like once a second as it's booting to make sure you hit it in the windows of time it's looking for key presses before it's time to load the operating system. you'll be fine. it's just unnerving to be locked out like that...
