If the system is posting and you can access the BIOS, then the ac adapter is probably giving the system enough power. Remove the HDD, see if the Clicking goes away and see if the system will boot to a WIndows XP CD with the HDD removed. (Most clicking issues in a portable are drive related.

If the system will post and boot to a CD with the HDD removed, then most likely the HDD is bad and will need to be replaced.

If the noise and boot problem do not change, then I'd see if the system runs normally with a Dell power adapter next.

Hi.

Pop the install DVD into the drive and restart your laptop. When you see the Dell logo hit the F2 key to get you into the BIOS. Look for boot options in the list and set the DVD/CD drive as the first boot device. Save the changes and exit the BIOS.

The laptop should restart and boot form the DVD/CD drive so you can install the operating system.



Good luck and regards.

This could be a failed hard drive. As soon as you turn on the computer, go into BIOS (I think you hit the F2 key on Toshiba systems) and check the list of IDE or SATA devices. If you do not see a hard drive model number there, that is your problem.

If you do see a hard drive, you may be able to get it to work with a System Recovery CD. It may have been corrupted by a virus or power failure during a write operation.

You must remove the battery for 12 min, and start your computer with the power cable.

Try opening the bios setup and change the boot order making harddrive no.1 in the boot order.

If all that not working, just press F12 and setup a new windows copy, may be the windows copy is damaged.

Blinking toshiba satellite A 05-54547 problem


A blinking monitor just might be a loose connection of the main display cable that runs up the left side of the display and connects to the motherboard. Also check the two wire cable attaching the inverter to the screen. The bezel of the screen will have to be removed as well as the power strip and keyboard to check the display cable. Remove the lcd screen from its hinges and look behind the display, there is a flat cable that plugs into the top edge of the screen. This cable has a habit of getting loose and falling out of the socket.

Now there is a chance that the BIOS of the laptop needs to be updated. There are many instances where the display starts acting up and a BIOS update is the correct action to take. Go to the Toshiba support site, put in the model number and then put in your operating system. Scroll down to where the BIOS is listed under downloads/drivers. Download and install the new BIOS, reboot.

Blank screen


Any hard disk that makes clicking or metallic noises is faulty, especially when POST error message no bootable devices detected.
To confirm go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard drive is detected, if it cannot detect the hard drive then it is definitely faulty.
Replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive to get the computer working again.
