Toshiba laptop a105-s4034

My laptop stopped working about 5 months ago. I tried to restore the computer but found out i had lost the second recovery disc.I bought replacement discs from toshiba but it keeps telling me - check media cable.when i tried running the recovery disc from my external dvd drive it says wrong machine.I have bought 2 sets of recovery discs and both don't work but the original set that is missing the second disc works.I have changed my boot settings so my HDD is first, disabled my lan so it cannot boot from the network. Removed my HDD and put it back in and still it doesn't work. I'm at a loss here i've done countless reserach and tested this computer for so many errors and still can't fix it. If anyone knows the answer please let me know a.s.a.p.

You need to set your CD/DVD/CDRW Disk Drive to Boot First. If the Second set of Recovery CD's don't work, Then they are the Wrong one's for that unit.

My toshiba a105-s4034 will start to power up and the hard drive light stays on a few seconds then goes out the display does not come on.if you do not put any memory card in bay close to hard drive computer...


Your computer is trying to boot up when your memory card is installed. The memory card doesn't have an operating system therefore the computer cannot boot . You can disable all of your bios. options except for the hard drive in your bios settings which you access right after you start the computer . You'll find it by using the arrow keys and selecting boat device options in the bios settings .

maybe the shop formatted the hard drive including the recovery partition where all the files should be .so your disc cant find it .
if you can boot up into safe mode then use windows restore function to restore to an earlier time,if not you may have to get a set of recovery discs from toshiba

good luck

Software


You can purchase Windows XP/Vista online or in any local office store. You will have to spend an evening downloading drivers from Windows/Toshiba and perhaps some third party.

I do not think your laptop came with a recovery partitian.

Ok...I would first step get the Network card (nic) model and driver info...this is the first thing you will need when you do the restore...it will make it alot easier to find drivers/etc.

Good luck my friend.

CD/DVD and Sound problem


Did your computer come with a restore disc? I find that a crupt c:file can reek havoc on any computer. If you do have a restore program disc. All c;files MUST BE SAVED TO A data DVD-RW discs that will hold all your files. Windows is notorious of self deleting start up files.

The first thing I would check is the speaker / headphone jack. These input jacks fail all the time and can effet your internal speakers. THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM>
