Sounds like a corrupted operating system. You need to reinstall windows from scratch. Also the hard drive may be corrupted and you may need a new hard drive. Since you can't really do much of anything you will need a copy of the windows OS on disks If the bios will not let you boot from a CD install disk then I suggest you need a professional to help you. You need to have a BOOT DISK in the cd drive for the system to get further than the bios software. If that won't work then your problems are deeper than a corrupted hard drive.

SOURCE: notebook doesn't see new hdd

You can try upgrading the BIOS:

I don't know that's going to do it for you.

This software will allow you to backup and restore the BIOS, just in case, as well as give you another tool to try cloning the drive itself:

SOURCE: cant boot

If you are sure no one has tampered with it and entered a HDD password and it is not prompting for a password then it is most likely a HDD failure. It is possible the BIOS will still recognize the HDD. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the HDD if you can access it there should be screws on the bottom marked with a cylinder symbol.

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

SOURCE: Unable to boot from HDD1 position or recreate RAID1.

you need to go into your bios and tell it to boot from the other hard drive make sure you plugged in the right wire to power it it should be the same as one used for the hard drive that works and plug it in tightly.

Usb boot drive using bios


You may need to enable USB boot function in the BIOS or change the boot order. In some cases the USB boot function has to be forced from boot priority in the BIOS.

Or goto the boot menu when you first turn the PC on there should be an option to use USB Boot assuming the option is enabled in the BIOS already.

My Toshiba laptop will not come on but only shows the power light on and off.what could be the problem?


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Toshiba Satellite C655-S5125 -


The Toshiba Satellite has a helpful program -- the Toshiba Wireless Manager -- to eliminate some of that frustration. Connecting to a wireless network using the built-in wireless usb wifi adapter on a Toshiba Satellite may require making some initial changes to the Satellite's settings. These changes can be made using the Toshiba Wireless Manager. As with all wireless networking, the settings of the laptop must match the settings of the network.

Restore disk has been lost. I need to know how to change bios to allow straight Xp to be installed


This isn't a bios setting, it's a setting that Compaq put somewhere (probably the MBR) of your OS to only allow it's restore discs.
If you want to use straight Windows XP OEM discs, just boot to the disc and you'll be able to install Windows. If that doesn't work, just format your hard drive(you'll lose everything) then boot to the XP and install that way.

Will not boot


Insert your bootable OS software disc in the CD/DVD drive and boot from the ROM. Run checkdisk and then try to repair the OS from the original OS disc, it should give you a chance to start the PC after that continue as per instructions on the screen...................sodeep
