Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook

Toshiba satellite Pro 440 CDX

I was gifted this laptop and it had a lot of rubbish on the C drive so decided it would be best to clean it and start again. In doing so I seem to have reformatted the C drive and lost all the drivers. I have a disc for Windows 98 which is what I want it to run but I believe I need Toshiba drivers first. These I do not have. It is an old machine and I only want it as a hobby/ exercise. I have not done much with basic since i did a course at the local polytech 20 years ago. but do understand some of the priciples. At present when I start up I get the message:-

Invalid system disk.

Replace the disk, and then press any key 

then of course when I press a key it repeats the message. How do I break this loop?

Toshiba satellite notebook error 10-FC06-000D system windows vista

When dealing with this error (10-FC06-000D) message in Toshiba unit is very comment in the L300 series, I don't know if Toshiba is using cheaper hard drives or what but I see a lot of them with the same problem. If you have a Toshiba unit got to their website to check if your unit is still under manufacture warranty if it is you have some options send it to Toshiba direct they should cover the shipping but I'm not to sure, or take it in to any Best Buy or Future shop stores with your proof of purchase and they will send it out for you. This is a hardware problem that is related to the hard drive, I wiped the hard drive and all it's boot records still unable to reinstall the OS OK, I finally decided to use a test hard drive to reinstall the OS worked fine so there is something wrong with the hard drive that most likely would need to be replaced

How do I remove the hard drive in Toshiba SatellitePro A10 EN? (Removing the plastic cover exposes only the end of the hard drive. I'm reluctant to just start pulling on it!

  • The original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD is fitted into a Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive cradle - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 HDD caddy.

      • Gently remove the cradle from the laptop, yes pull on it
      • Unscrew the original Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive & remove it from the cradle.
      • Screw the new Toshiba Satellite Pro A10 Hard Disk Drive into the cradle & refit the cradle into the laptop.
      • Re-install XP or Vista

          The DVD drive on my toshiba satellite pro L300 wont recognise discs. It was working fine up until a few days ago and i cant find the cause.

          Try running a cleaning disc in your drive as the laser might just be dusty. If that doesn't help then you will most likely need to replace the drive

          Spilled iced tea on brand new Toshiba laptop

          I would leave it in the airing cupboard or somewhere warm to dry off completely first and try it again later. Also whilst it is doing that if its under warranty or a newish laptop then see if you can get Toshiba to repair it for you.

          Not much else anyone can advise as obviously you have already turned it on after cleaning it up which it may of still been wet inside so not a great idea to turn it on as the liquid could of possibly of gone inside and as a lot of people know water / liquids and electricity is a big no no.
