Hey you try this.
Enter into BIOS, Disable SATA Support, if problem persists, change your Hard Disk, that is crashed. I had the same problem last month.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite laptop boots up but shuts down on its own very shortly

Hi JOJO0803,

Based from the error message you're getting it sounds to me that your problem there is not software related but is more hardware in nature.Since you're getting a message "disk read error occurred IDE#0" this pertains to a problem with the hard drive itself. It's possible that your hard drive developed bad sectors or errors on the disc itself.

So to be sure I would recommend that you run the hardware diagnostics for your laptop computer especially the one for the hard drive since you're getting this message. If the hard drive fails the test or any other part fails in the test, contact your techsupport and ask for replacement parts if your PC is still under warranty. Otherwise you may have to buy parts for your laptop.

If the hard drive tests passed and all the other hardware tests also passed then you may proceed to troubeshoot the software using the Windows XP Home CD. Boot from the WinXP Home CD, and you get to the setup screen, choose "R" for recovery console and then on the prompt type "CHKDSK /R" let it run, it may take a while. afterwards it will bring you back to the prompt then type EXIT and it will reboot the system, see if that fixes the problem. Worst case scenario you may have to format then reinstall Windows XP again to fix this problem.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

SOURCE: toshiba satellite 1805 s204 "media test failure, check cable"....

Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck

Usually these buttons only operate when the Toshiba software is fully installed. Check whether you do have the Toshiba Initial CD and try installing all there programms in terms of media .

Remove monitor on a toshiba satellite C875D-S7225


A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

In the area you're going in, you do not need an Anti-Static wrist strap.
Do be mindful about Static electricity, though.

Help. I can't adjust the brightness on toshiba satellite C870. It's new to me and hard to use in different rooms. fn/f2/fn/f3 does not work.


First are you using battery power, does it brighten when plugged in ? Go to the Taskbar Notifications Area look for the battery/power Icon right click choose Power Options click openPower Options, you will fid your Power Options located here, Your laptop probaly is defaulted to Power Savings, I use High Preformance, change them to your preferences, REMEMBER, There is a reason the laptop dims on battery, to save energy and extend battery between charges.

Toshiba satellite L455D-S5976 PXE-E61 media test failure...brand new hard drive What do I do???


You need to boot from an installation CD for the operating system, or the Toshiba restore set. New hard drives are completely blank when you purchase them. The computer is looking for something to boot from and cant find it, so it trys to boot from ethernet. Check your bios set up for boot order and boot devices. You might try disabling boot from network.

Hope this helps

Toshiba satellite 5105,only gets a sfar as "toshiba" screen with red lettering.Cant get to bios, hitting esc. worked once and said media failure. What can I do to fix it,or get it to at least do...


First, make sure the ESC key is the proper key to get to the BIOS. You should see a prompt right after you get the Toshiba splash screen to hit a function key to change settings.
I'm thinking because you got a media failure error, your hard drive may be bad and the boot order says to boot to the HD.

Media test failure


The laptop is not detecting your hard drive. Remove it (usually one screw on the bottom) and put it back in. If it still doesn't see it, your hard drive has kicked the bucket and you will need a new one.
