Re: power adaptor cord missing and system recovery disks...
Well, if you only lost the power cord you can easily gets a new one in any computer shop, if you are missing the charger you can search for one that be compatible; this model uses a LiteOn model PA-1600-06 or you can try one with this specifications:
Input: 100-240 V 1.5A 60-60hz (this doesn't matter too much)
Output: 19V 3.16A (this is the really important).

1st : you can check from the power cable charge
2nd : check the adaptor charger if there is a light indicator or not, or you can check with multimeter to check the voltage on charger adaptor, does show the proper voltage for your laptop, you can check at the end of the connection that leads to the laptop.
note : Remember use DC current at Multimeter
3rd : if the adaptor running well, just plug on the adaptor charger to the laptop, dont turn on the laptop power, just see the light indicator with battery / lightning image on laptop, its explained that there is or is not the power current running to the laptop.
3rd.A : if its no power goes to the laptop then your adaptor charger is failed
3rd.B : if is there, there must be a problem with your motherboard, section power / power plugs, why do not want to charge with a new battery.
- if the problem on number 1 & 2, then you can change the power cord and the adaptor charger.
- if there is problem on the 3rd.B then you can go to the toshiba services center for your problem.
Take disk out. Power down. Restart. See if will start up without a disk in it. Might be confused by your disk. Did you try to F8 or F9 while restarting to get into BIOS (trying to remember which one will boot you to BIOS). Then see if the CD/DVD was disable for boot up. Turn that back on if you can get into BOS so it will boot up you recovery disk.. If your OS is completely gone, you will have to reinstall...
I successfully formatted my Toshiba Satelite laptop using the original recovery disks. However, when I try to restore it using the recovery disks, the systems gives an error message of BOOT MANAGER IS MISSING. The system doesn't recognize the recovery disks and I can not install (reinstall) the Windows Vista on the mechine.
It takes you to system recovery either because your boot sector has been lost, or because your laptop is missing key files to run windows. The only solution is to allow recovery to run and replace your windows installation unless you have the original restore disk and can do a system recovery with that.
The recovery disk is usually stored as a separate partition on the hard disk itself (Mostly in cases of laptop disks), so when ever you purchase laptops with pre-installed Operating System, The very first thing you do is create a CD/DVD recovery disk ie burn the recovery partition on the CD/DVD. so that you can use the same DVD in case the OS crashes. In your case as your hard disk was crashed and replaced ask the people from where you purchased the laptop/pc to restore it to the new hard disk, or purchase the Operating System.
Hi! TRY THESE TO SEE IF WE CAN GET YOU POWERED UP! :)
Confirm the system is not in HOLD mode Make sure the PSP system is not in Hold Mode (in the down position). Slide the Power/Hold switch up to clear Hold Mode. Or try sliding the Power/Hold switch up and holding it there until the power indicator light turns off and the PSP system is completely turned off. Then try turning the PSP on again.
Confirm the backlight is ON Make sure the LCD screen's backlight is not turned off. If it is, press any button to turn ON the backlight.
Confirm use of only licensed products (AC Adaptor, battery pack and charger) The AC Adaptor, battery pack and battery charger must be licensed for use with the PSP system. All licensed products for use with the PSP will have the following logos displayed directly on the product and/or the packaging: If any of the products you are using does not have these logos on them, we recommend that you immediately discontinue the use of these products, as they void the PSP system's warranty, and can cause damage to the system. See compatible peripherals for the PSP system for a full list of supported products. There are some products that can be used with the PSP system that may not display our logos. Products such as San Disk 1GB Memory Sticks, or various USB cables, needs only to be genuinely certified. Look for the genuine certified logos on these products or contact the company which manufactures these products for more information.
Try the battery pack only Unplug the AC adaptor from the PSP system. Make sure a charged PSP battery pack is inserted inside the PSP system. Turn on the unit. If you get power, then the problem may be with the AC adaptor and power cord.
Try the battery pack in a different PSP system If possible, try your PSP battery pack in a different PSP system. If your battery works on a different PSP system, it may indicate an issue with your PSP system.
Try a different PSP battery pack If possible, try a different battery in your PSP system. If a different battery pack does work on your PSP system, it may indicate an issue with the original battery pack.
Try the AC adaptor and the PSP battery pack Insert the battery pack and plug in the AC adaptor. If you still do not get any power, your PSP system may need to be sent in for service (see PSP Service for details).
Try the AC adaptor / power cord only Turn off the PSP system, unplug the AC adaptor, and remove the battery. Now plug in the AC adaptor to the PSP system with the battery removed. Confirm the AC adaptor and power cord are firmly connected to each other. Now make sure they are also firmly connected to the PSP system and the electrical outlet. If the PSP system powers on, the battery may need to be replaced.
Check AC adaptor and power cord for damage Visually inspect the AC adaptor and the power cord for damage. Do not use if frayed, cut, or damaged in any way.
Check the electrical outlet Confirm the electrical outlet that you are using is active (receiving power). Try using a different electrical outlet.
Try a different AC adaptor and power cord If possible, try a different AC adaptor and power cord. If a different AC adaptor and power cord does not work, the PSP system may need to be sent in for service (see PSP Service for details).
Confirm no unauthorized system software or downloads were used Confirm that you have not used any unauthorized system software updates or downloads on the PSP system. Use of such unauthorized firmware updates voids the warranty and can damage the PSP system.
WLAN turned off Make sure the wireless (WLAN) network function is not in use while charging. The battery pack cannot be recharged when the WLAN function is being used.
Power surge If you experienced a power surge, shortage, or a lightning storm in your geographical area recently, this may have affected the PSP system's power supply. Please contact Consumer Services below for information.
First off it?s a fairly risky proposition to plug a power adaptor from one device into another without making absolutely sure it supplies the correct voltage, amperage and has the correct polarity. Your laptop needs 18.5 volts, 3.5 amps, and approximately 65 watts to charge the battery. If you power adaptor is less that 3.5 amps it will shut down to prevent any damage so that?s probably what is happening.
I would suggest going to the HP (now owns Compaq) or Ebay web sites and purchasing a replacement there.
