Question about Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504 Notebook
Good afternoon everyone. I have a toshiba 5005-s504. I got a virus, and decided to use my recovery discs to reload. It started to relaod, and took approximately a half hour. When I tried to reboot, the entire drive was gone. Nothing at all. So I decided to put the recovery discs in again. It starts, and about 1minute in, I'm getting a ghost message reading "Error accessing file. Please check media and retry." I hit enter, and another error comes up "Error 11000. Invalid dump. If this problem persists please contact Toshiba support..."
Any suggestions..... PLEASE!
Same issue on an Advent PC - the issue I had was that the PC had two CD drives - one CD (letter D in the old windows installation) and one DVD (letter E in the old windows installation).
I was using the CD drive for the install process .... what I did not spot was that although the DVD was installed later it was ahead of the CD drive on the Bus so in a fresh base install the CD drive actually got assigned the letter E - I found a similar hit on the web so once I put the recovery CD into the DVD drive it ran like a charm .... hope this helps someone else ....
This is becauseThe DVD was installed later and so on windows it was assigned the letter E: ... as this is a fresh install the Bus sorted out what was what and assigned it the letter D: - I did not
