Question about Toshiba Satellite M115-S3094 Notebook

1 Answer

Wont go past boot menu

I bought a windows xp boot disk for a used toshiba satellite m115-s3094 because it wont get past the the black screen that says WindowsXP with the blue "loading bar". After that it flashes a "Blue screen of death", so fast I cant read it, and reboots itself into a repetitive cycle of this. I have already changed the boot order so the cd/dvd is 1st in the order, but I have yet to find a repair, reinstall, or any options to fix my problem.

SOURCE: My Toshiba Satellite M115 S3094 will not boot. It

If its not booting at all then you should understand that it may be because of any of these reasons :

  • Faulty mother-board or any module of it. You will need to replair it by any technician & its a difficult & costly task.
  • Another reason is due to damaged RAM and its most probable also. In that case you can just simply replace your RAM with a new one and its not so costly also.A better RAM will enhance your system's performance too.

This happened to my Sister's Toshiba laptop, it's just coincidence that it happened to you when reinstalling Windows. The only solution is to short out the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Doing this will probably void your warranty, so I cannot detail how it's done, however google is a great resource. I warn you though, shorting the wrong things on a motherboard can permanently ruin your laptop.

How to reinstall windows XP


Your model Toshiba notebook has a SATA hard drive.
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive. http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

Toshiba Satellite M115 S3094 Notebook how reset bios


To reset BIOS take the battery out, if that does not work you will have to reset jumper J1.

In case none of the both worked to reset BIOS you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password. You've got Kill CMOS on there, for example which wipes out CMOS. Here's the download link to the entire CD: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

I forgot My toshiba satellite m115 s3094 password for windows xp. Not the administrator window. Right after it ask for my bios.


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

If you dont even get a menu up when you press f8 then try f11 or f12 for a boot menu and select ide 0 it may be that it is trying to boot from another device

M115 won't boot


Thanks - that makes more sense. Sounds like a hardware problem. Most likely suspect, the hard drive. You'll want to get some diagnostic tests to run. I'd recommend just booting the CD to a command prompt and running some tests. You can search for some bootable cd's for this purpose that will make your like a bit easier www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd.
