Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

Toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 d: drive issue


Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers fro firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates.

When I turned on my computer it went to a black screen then said "Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation v2.0.1.9(12/15/09) Check cable...


You get this message when the hard drive (1) is not detected at start up (its dead), or (2) hard drive is detected at start up but there's nothing on it to boot from. Since it's a Toshiba, you can likely hit the Esc key when the Toshiba Logo shows up, it'll prompt you to enter Setup with F1 (or F2), and then you can see if there's anything under Fixed Disk or Hard Disk Drive - see if it's detected. My suspicion is that the hard drive is likely bad, and on Toshiba's, the hard drives are usually pretty inexpensive and easy to replace - physically. You'll need to have an optical drive and a Windows CD/DVD to load Windows onto the new drive. Let me know if further help is needed.

I have purchase lenovo Y410 but DVD drive not working since 8 days . Kindly suggest how to resovle this issue Thanks Dinesh


I would 'slap' Windows around, and make it reinstall the drivers for the DVD optical drive.

Vista:

[Note* All clicks are Left-click unless otherwise noted]

1) Click on Start (Windows logo button)

2) Click on Control Panel

3) Click on Device Manager

4) After Device Manager loads all the way, click on the + sign to the left of -
DVD/CD-ROM drives

5) Right-click on the name of the DVD optical drive

6) Click on Uninstall

Windows will come up with a 'squawk box',
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device"

It's okay, click on OK.

Now close all windows, and go back to the desktop screen.
Restart the computer.

When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one will follow,
"Found XXXX optical drive"
(XXXX being the name of the optical drive)

If this doesn't work try cleaning the laser optical eye of the DVD optical drive.

Laptop on open the DVD optical drive tray.
Turn the laptop off.
Remove ALL power to the laptop.
(AC adapter {Charger} and Battery)
Use a can of compressed air for computers.

Or use a disk cleaning device for cleaning CD/DVD optical drives. (Power plugged into the laptop)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

CD player will not work


Try a different CD. iIf the computer doesn't recognize it at all, listen for the drive to spin and look for a blinking light on the CD tray. These signs do not necessarily mean the CD drive isn't broken. I would find the model number of your laptop and do a search on eBay for a replacement CD drive. These are very easy to switch out. If the new one works, then you're set. If it doesn't work, there may be an issue with your motherboard.

I brought a toshiba from the pawn shop and i tried to change from windows xp to windows vista how can i find a hard drive disk to install windows vista


You don't need to replace the Hard drive in the laptop, you can usually upgrade, or install vista from the CD-ROM / DVD-Rom.

If your laptop does not have a DVD drive to install vista, you may use file sharing to install it from another computer on the network. To do this follow these steps:

1) Place the Vista DVD in second computer
2) right-click on the DVD-drive that has the Vista DVD in it, and select " Share..."
3) You may need to press the "Advanced sharing" button to enable sharing, if so, do that, and just hit the " apply " button
4) OK out of all of those menues
5) on your laptop open " my computer" and click the " map network drive "
6) browse to the location of your drive on the other computer, and click " OK "
7) install Windows vista

If you do however need a new hard drive for your laptop, you can usually get them from any PC store such as Bestbuy, fry's, or online from places such as NewEGG.com, and Tigerdirect.com.

You will need to know what type of hard drive you have, and how to replace it. The manual for your laptop usually has this type of information.

SIDE NOTE:
When putting Vista on a laptop, be sure it meets the minimum requirements.

Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 DVD\CD-RW drive problem


Hello GeneMat,

I am Romeet,i will try and help you with this problem.Seems it could be an issue with the Combo DVD Drive's Driver Software or Firmware.

Try This:

From your Desktop:

Right Click " My Computer" Icon and select "Properties"

Go to "Hardware" Tab and select "Device Manager"

Under Device Manager, scroll down to the "DVD/CDROM Drives" menu and click on the plus ( + ) Sign next to it

Right Click the Drive name eg " Toshiba DVD-R TSST 2313" and select " Uninstall" Click yes to any prompts and restart your Laptop.

After rebooting, Windows XP should pick up the drivers again, so wait a while for it to complete and until it notifies you that " Windows successfully completed installing your new hardware" or something to that effect and then try using the software cds again

Best of luck!
