Try Restore.
try restore from disk. (if you have them)
Try factory settings, and you do not need a swap file.

Hello, I have a Packard Bell branded laptop displaying the error there is no boot disk see details and the photos in first comment to know what happens and did someone can help me with it?!


If you set the boot order to USB first boot device and HD second. Insert USB and boot from there. It should find your HD and then you can install your OS. Another system for a different laptop will not work!

Black screen with boot error


You should use your hdd with the operating system installed as 1st boot device; else, use the factory restore from your manual, it is a complete backup of your OS to application that is stored in a hidden partition in your hard disk.

If you insert your Vista or Win7 disc into the DVD drive and boot form that, make sure that the BIOS is set to recognise the hard disc. The OS disc will do the rest. If it cannot find the hard disc, maybe the hard disc is faulty.
When you are successful, go to toshiba.com and download the latest drivers and firmware for the BIOS.
Hope that helps.

Shut down the laptop, make sure that no light is lit up. Before booting it back up, press and hold the F12 button. It will lead you to boot options. Open up your DVD drive and insert Disc 1 of recovery then make sure you select the ODD or the dvd drive to boot up. This will start the recovery process.

Other models has Icons for boot options. Make sure you select the single disc option to boot the ODD.

Hope this helps.

How doI reset my Toshiba Laptop with Vista 64 bit to factory settings?


There are two ways to reset your Toshiba Laptop to factory settings.
First is using Recovery Media Disc and the second is the hidden partition on your hard drive.

If you're going to use Recovery Media Disc follow these steps:

If you have two or more recovery media disc try to insert first the disc that has a label of 1 of 2 or 1 of 3. Then turn of your laptop.
Make sure that the disc is inside. After that try to find the letter "C" key on your keyboard. Now turn on your laptop and keep tapping the letter "C" key. If you have successfully accessed the Boot Menu choose Toshiba Recovery Wizard.
After choosing the Toshiba Recovery Wizard there will be a big warning screen that will appear choose the option yes and after that you will have a series of option. Remember to choose always the first option after the big warning screen appears.

That's it. You will have a message that the Windows is initializing files.
That process will take 1-2 hours for it to finish.

Hidden Partition on the Hard Drive.

Turn on the laptop and as soon as the laptop turns on press and hold down the number 0 key (the number 0 it should be on the top of the keyboard beside the number 9 key) keep 0 pressed until Toshiba leading innovation appears. Usually you will have a beeping sound when you are trying to access the System Recovery of the Hard Drive. That's an indication that you have successfully accessed the Systrem Recovery of the laptop.
Wait for the screen that say Windows is loading files.
After that you will see a big warning screen the choose yes and
Choose 1st option always.
Cx able to initialize the partition.
Disconnect cables and turn off the wireless switch.
Recovery would take 1-2 hours for it to finish.

Hello,

You may have a boot sector virus. At my bench I would remove your hard drive and install it on one of my towers and run a virus scan on your hard drive. Recovery from a boot sector virus is very difficult using tools found in Hiren's Boot disc, a cdrom that contain various programs to recover a hard drive.

Lastly, you may simply have lost the boot strap loader (even though this doesn't make any sense if you have used your recovery CD and recovery partition with success. If you boot and hear a beep, press F8 repeatedly immediately after the beep and you'll receive the recovery bootup option screen, choose Safe Mode first and see if that works, if not choose last know good configuration and otherwise if offerred choose use System Restore.

If all this fails you as a user you need service from a professional.

Hope this has helped or fixed ya.
