Toshiba C650D-018 harddrive failure message?

Hey there! I am having trouble with my mom's Toshiba Satellite laptop, that I have already mentioned the model of in the title. I was doing normal computer maintenance (she was busy with something), defragging, deleting stuff she didn't want that COULD be removed safely, etc. When I went to run chkdsk, it tells me that I need to reboot to do the disk check, so I click ok and restart. One long disk check and a startup sequence later, windows comes charging in with a harddrive error! I am not sure why her harddrive would be failing, especially since she takes care of her laptop just as much as me! I even checked the harddrive physically, as well as re-mounting it once. So I go to start it up again, and it is still whining. I have had trouble like this with other computers before, where the harddrive thinks it's failing when it isn't, but have not tested this on another computer because I don't think my older laptop (windows xp, 7 years old and much faster) could do it. I would like to know if this is a common glitch, or if my harddrive is actually failing, because I have no money for Windows 7, let alone a 320gb harddrive! If this is a glitch, can you help me find a way to resolve it? Thanks!

Get a hard drive utility (Something like this) They'll talk to the hard drive and read out it's internal report, as well as testing it more thoroughly than Windows will do. They do sometimes fail for no apparent reason regardless of how well they've been looked after.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 Memory - Crash Problem

get yourself a 2.5 hard drive box (no hard drive in it) costs less than a tenner on ebay. Remove hard drive from current laptop, put it in box, connect to another laptop via usb provided and you will be able to read from it like it's a flash drive or cd. Then just copy files you need to other laptop or CD. No damage done to original hard drive. Put your hard drive back into laptop.

This part, am just taking a guess at but then see if you can do a system restore to a date previous to problems ie when you updated in case it was the update that caused the problem. If you had XP disk and ID number you could try a repair or a reinstall but that is pretty drastic. No way should you need a new computer

Let me know how you get on. IF you don't know what I mean by the HD box, just shout and I will be more specific

Good luck

SOURCE: Blue screen on start-up saying 'stop: c000007b bad image' etc

Errr...sounds like fun.

OK well I would stop trying to get Windows back in working condition until after you backup your files.

The easiest way is to remove the hard drive from the system and place it into a usb enclosure.

Backup the files and then reinstall windows.

If you try the band-aid method you'll just end up wasting your time.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba c650d not booting up


Most typical reason for Toshiba laptop not booting up is a defective hard drive.
If you have a Windows disc that came with your laptop, then find an inexpensive hard drive at a retailer that enables you to return the hard drive within 14 days......and replace the hard drive. Make SURE the hard drive is a 2.5 inch model and that it is a direct replacement for your notebook. (Call the vendor's tech support if necessary to ensure compatibility).

If you are able to reload Windows, then your problem is fixed. If not, return the hard drive and take your notebook in for a repair estimate.

I want to buy a recovery dics for toshiba laptop satellite l675d - s7052. But i don't know where it's bought.


I do not believe Toshiba sells recovery discs, instead they have a utility called Toshiba recovery disc creator. Which should already be on your laptop if not download from Toshiba website.

HI there,
The "Error" texts saying:
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Are completely normal. This simply states that there is no external cables plugged into the specialty inputs on your toshiba laptop.

The "operating system not found" is stating that your existing hard drive is either A) dead or B) been erased.

Try to re-install your operating system, if it finds no hard drive, you'll need a new one!
