Is it a PATA (big connector) or SATA (small connector) drive ?

 

Try changing your drive-cable and check the Master/Slave setting on the back of the HD. (Only applies to PATA)

 

Check the powerconnector also to see if this might be faulty.

 

And btw your "Caps-Lock"-key is stuck ..... :-P

Toshiba laptop wont boot correctly. Upon start up it flashes blue screen. Does not recognize optical drive to try to fix windows 8 or reinstall windows 8.1.


Sounds like the hard drive has an issue. Do you hear a very faint clicking sound when it tries to boot up? put your ear near the front of the laptop, bottom of keyboard area and listen for a clicking sound. if you hear a click click click click sound repeating continuously, its a failing hard drive. If you hear ths sound, you will need to buy a replacement hard drive. Replacing it is easy. Turn your laptop upside down and look for the small door that houses your hd. Unscrew the door and take hard drive out. Now you take this hard drive to Staples and ask them for a replacement. Once you know what you need, whether Sata or IDE hard drive, you can buy a replacement cheaply on eBay or buy it from any computer store. pop the hard drive back in and then you should be able to install a new operating system on the laptop. If you do not hear a clicking sound, then you may have a corrupted windows boot. Have you tried booting in safe mode? as you turn the power on, hold down the f8 button. You will get a screen asking if you want to boot in safe mode. Select, safe mode with networking. If it boots normally in safe mode, you can then put in your windows cd and do a repair. If you cannot boot into safe mode, and you have tried replacing hard drive, but cd/dvd is still not working, then you may need o take it in or diagnostics. You can buy very cheaply on eBay, a connector that will allow you to connect your hard drive to another computer via USB. This will allow you to test the hard drive and also possibly get data of of it, provided the hard drive is not too badly damaged. I hope this helps.. Please ask any questions you might have.

Unit failed to boot and observe the followng; - No start-up display - No CMOS boot-up display - Hard disk clicking sound and OS won't start


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power supply.
Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive.
Reconnect the AC power supply.
Turn the computer on.
Put any "data" disk into the CD-drive.
Does it display the CMOS boot-up display?
Can you hear the PC try to spin that "data" CD, i.e., trying to "boot" from it?
If it works "better" without the disk-drive attached, the disk-drive is the problem.

While installing windows Xp it says no hard drive found but displays in BIOS


Sounds to me like your harddrive needs a driver for windows to recognize it. You could try this harddrive utility.

Compaq Desktop won't boot up.


Do you have your Vista installation disc? If so, you can boot from that and then run the Windows RE troubleshooter, which should be able to test your hard drive and maybe even try to repair it.

No login screen


As soon as you get past the bios screen, start clicking F8 to get a boot menu. Boot into Safe Mode.

Then right click the C:\ drive and tell it to do a full disk check with repair.

It will say it has to do it on reboot. Reboot, allow disk check to run and see if the problem is fixed.

If not, put your Windows disk back in and click Start > Run > then type sfc /scannow and clikc OK.

When finished, run windows update and reapply all service packs.

Had new hard drive put in at Best Buy and now the computer won't turn on. The start up light comes n and the fan starts but the hard drives never boot up. Can't get their store to look at problem so I'm...


they must have put it fully factory, you need to get your cd to start up before the hard drive does so you can use windows utility on to format and partition it , you may need to go into the setup (bios) and change the boot sequence to cd/dvd rom before the hard drive and run windows setup utility to install the OS on your new harddrive

Windows xp home edition computer will not start


If the system cannot start on safe mode probably your operating system has gone bad, to check your hard disk you can go use your windows xp disk, to boot from it press f12 choose cd rom keep on tapping enter and dont mind the message that you need to press any key to boot from cd, and then when you are on the welcome to setup page press r for recovery console, once you are there try to type in chkdsk /p and after type in fixboot and press y, and restart your system, if that wont work then your hard drive is bad.

Hard drive crash


Your hard drive has crashed but here is what you can probably try. Take off the hard drive. Put it into another system (a friend's computer or something) as secondary drive. See if it gets detected in the BIOS. If it does, you can try and run a application like Recover my files to try and salvage your data. Hope this helps.
