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 said you have removed your HDD.. did you try to the remove the CD drive also while trying to fix it? If so. b/c you mentioned "check media cable" ... did you hook it back up the same way?

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 laptop A105-S4034 laptop wont boot up correctly


The j is the drive letter that your laptop is expecting the cd drive to be and of course it is not. Go into the bios and select it to boot from the cd drive instead of the hard drive and try again. if it boots correctly from the cd the when you get the option to install windows make sure you delete the partition that windows was on. In fact delete all the partitons asyou have the cd's providing you do not have a data drive with all your info on it.

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 .

TOSHIBA A105


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

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.
