Blank screen "BOOTMGR is missing" for toshiba satellite A215-S5837


I would assume this may have Windows XP or 7, see if you can find the recovery disk for your machine. One of the things you can try is use the CD as your boot disk (you may need to enter the BIOS or SETUP to change the boot order...there will be a key to hit when you see the Toshiba splash screen when you first boot the machine...it will say press "<some key here>" to enter setup.)
Once you boot from the disk I would try getting to a command prompt and running the following command: chkdsk c: /f /r

This will scan and repair any bad sectors on your hard drive and if they can be repaired it may make your machine bootable again. If they cannot be repaired, it may be that your hard drive is dying. Either way...if you get into the machine (even from the boot disk) if you can see the drive, I'd recommend backing up whatever files you can, because if the drive dies, you will lose your data

WHEN BOOTING THE TOSHIBA SATELLITE A215-S5837 I hear two beeps and get a dark screen. I can press f1 and go into safe mode but don't know what to do next. The error message is "resource conflict...


Hello,
These beeps are error code and two short beeps during start up normally refers to RAM or memory not being detected. You can try to reseat the RAM modules or ask someone who knows how to do it. If it will still be the same, it means that the RAM is defective and consider replacing it.
Cheers!

Sounds like a graphic card problem. You should be able to remove your hard drive and connect it to a desktop computer and access the drive and get your important files.

Toshiba a215-s5837 problem, ac light only flashes


You may have a bad battery. Many times laptops will not work if the battery is faulty. The first step would be to replace the battery with a new one.

Second Step: If the battery is working, then you may have a faulty AC power supply. It may be enough power being brought to power up the LCD light, but not the computer.

Third Step: Yoru mother board circuitry could be bad in the sense that some circuits are broken or the power conduit is not supplying the power to the rest of the circuits on the board.

If you are not a professional and able to troubleshoot in this manner after testing the batter and AC power supply, then I would suggest taking the laptop to a store for them to test the circuitry flow of the mother board.

My toshiba laptop model a215-s5837 shuts off randomly. please help


I also have a Toshiba that started doing this. The problem was overheating. Try getting some of the canned compressed air and blowing out the fan and also the vents all the way around the computer. Also make sure the fan intake is unrestricted. I bought an aftermarket stand that has a built in fan that plugs into the USB.. My computer has not shut off once since then. Good Luck.
