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

When computer boots up I get this error code A disk read error occured code 0F00:0666


A bad hard drive or the boot sector (the map of the hard drive contents) has an error.

You have two choices. If you run regular backups you can do a full restore including the boot sector, if not, you'd have to format the hard drive and lose your data. Then reinstall Windows and start from scratch.

The other option that loses your data, as well, is replacing the hard drive if it's defective.

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.

Do you have the original installation disk that came with the computer? You can try to boot from that CD and do a repair installation. The Cyclic Redundance Check (CRC) error refers to the media the computer is trying to access (either the CD or the hard drive). Try booting into Safe Mode (reboot and press F8 repeatedly until you get a boot menu). From Safe Mode run a checkdisk (chkdsk from command line) on the hard drive to find and repair any found disk issues.

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.

After shutting down the computer a few times when transfer file from PC to CAXE3702T0, all of a sudden, blue screen and when the Window 7 boot up again, it said the CAXE3702T0 has CRC problem. I tried...


CRC or Cyclic Redundancy Check is a process that helps in identifying any errors that might occur during the data transmission process. Data is usually transmitted in small blocks, and a CRC value is assigned to each block and transmitted along with it. This CRC value is verified at the destination to ensure that it matches the CRC value transmitted from the source. A CRC error occurs when the two values (source and destination) do not match and the test fails. The main benefit of CRC is that it helps you ensure that data you have received or downloaded is not damaged or corrupt.

Causes of CRC Errors

CRC errors can occur due to many different types of problems. Some of these problems are:

  1. Damage to file during the transmission process.
  2. A problem occurred when the file was being sent.
  3. Problems with the device that is accessing or opening the file.
  4. Problems with the file itself.
