    Have you tried the Toshiba System Setup? Usually you have to push a key during the initial boot screen to get there. If you have a manual, it should say something about how to check those settings.

    Otherwise, do you have a Windows installation CD or DVD? If so, put that in and see if the system can load it. The Windows installer will then try to locate the hard drive, and might be able to tell you if it has problems. If so, turn off the system and get it to a technician. DO NOT let Windows go on thru the installation or it might reformat the drive and you could lose all your data.

This page solution worked for me.
Some CD burner sw is creating this issue: they monopolize the optical drive and if you remove or if they have a prioblem, CD/DVD drive is NOT released.

Boot failure insert system disk, but it wont load


You need to check both in BIOS by pressing F key during boot. First check to see if HD is there. If OK, then change Optical drive to first boot, save and reboot.

IF MISSING HD -
Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Satellite a135-s2386 will not boot when power is turned on black screen


Does it make a beeping sound when you turn it on? If it does try this: Turn it off and take the battery out for about 2 minutes. Put the battery back in and press the power button to turn on. Immediately tap the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring you to the advanced boot options. Choose last known good configuration.
If that doesn't work you may also try choosing system restore in the advanced boot options and follow the instructions. Note that a system restore brings the computer setting back to a previous restore point and will removes all changes after that chosen date.
I hope this helps. Cheers,

How do i install my recovery disc on my toshiba satelite A135-s4527, nothing is working right on it and i dont know how to use the cd


Make sure that your first boot option is CD and second boot option is Hard Drive. You can do this by entering Setup when you boot up your computer. Computer manufacturers use different options for entering Setup, the most common being either by pressing F1 or F2 or DEL.

Once in Setup, go to the Boot tab and check the Boot Device Sequence. If Boot from CD is not first, you need to follow screen instructions to change it. Then, 'save and exit'.

While your computer is on, open the CD drive and insert your recovery disk. Then, turn off your computer.

Reboot and your recovery program should start automatically.

MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP ALL OF THE FILES YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE ABOVE STEPS!!

My toshiba s\atelite a135-s4527 wont turn on and


Could be the "resume" battery that has died - its an internal battery shrink wrapped in bright green plastic on tosh's normally - you might be able to get to it by unplugging stuff, battery, cd rom etc etc....unplug it and plug it back in again, if it comes alive again order another. I went on a toshiba laptop maintenance course years ago with a company that i worked for and that error that youre seeing was the fix....see if that works...

TOSHIBA satelite wont turn on


If you have tried a new power supply and taking out the battery and it still won't start, then the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard. This means that the motherboard will have to be replaced. Check into your warranty, being that it's only 10 months old, it should still be under warranty. If so, then get it to them to be fixed asap, before they decide your warranty doesn't cover it.
