Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba L300 with Launch Startup Repair Recommened on bootup.

Got that on boot up. Decided to use the backup image on the extra drive.
Received the Error: 10-FA11-45D error while it was doing a CRC check or backup. Clicked Ok now its trying to setup windows vista home premium.
There is a clicking noise coming from the hard drive, which I'll assume is a click of death. The computer was bought around Christmas from Best Buy or Futureshop. Wondering if I should call Toshiba and see if its still under warranty. Unless there is another fix?

If the hard drive is clicking then likely it is dead. I would call toshiba and warranty it. If they say its not under warranty then a hard drive should be no more than about 150 depending on the size

Hello.

Sounds like the Windows Recovery Partition is corrupted or your hard drive may be faulty.

But, first try to boot your system in Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly as it boots) and choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good.

If it still doesn't boot properly, try the diagnostics to determine if a hardware problem - boot your system and press F 12 (or F2) repeatedly.

Hope this helps.

Are there anything attached to your laptop while trying boot? Do you have your original Windows installer? You can fix your boot up by repairing your OS with your original Windows OS installer.
Something might have caused for your Windows boot up corrupted or its missing something that is needed to bootup properly.

Can not open windows....how to recover...? n i dont know how to solve this problem.... (vista - Dell Precision T3400)


  1. Boot from the Vista install disk
  2. Choose your language settings and click "Next"
  3. On the bottom of the screen click the link "Repair Your Computer"
  4. Select the Vista installation to repair and click "Next" and it will launch WinRE
    • The "Load Drivers" button will open a mini Windows Explorer, which can be used to search for drivers in case they are needed to access disk drives or other components. This mini Explorer is also very handy to perform file copy/move operations and change file-attributes.
The following options are available in WinRE: Startup Repair - It will repair the boot manager files and restore critical files required for booting Windows Vista.

This should solve basic bootup problems.
Or you could also do a Complete Repair which replaces your current Vista installation.

Get a new drive in a caddy and boot your computer within safe mode (press F8 as it loads).
Copy all you can to the new drive.
If you cannot do that, buy a replacement hard drive and load your system disk in the CD Rom drive booting from it. When the system is loaded and running, power the desktop down, fit the old drive and set the jumper as SLAVE.
Boot up your desktop and there will be what is left of your data on drive D. Copy all you require before it is too late!
Hope that helps.
