Question about Toshiba Satellite C655-S5125
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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:

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.

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.
