Toshiba 8000 system disc message

We have a Toshiba 8000 that boots up with a message: "insert systems disc". We have not had this problem before, and don't have a system's disk. I have noticed other people have had a similar problem. Do you have any suggestions.

Hi Larry,

This happens when either the system disk is corrupt or faulty, or, when another disk with higher priority but no operating system is in the computer.

Typically removable disks like CD's, DVD's, Floppy disks, Memory Cards and USB flash drives can all take higher priority than your windows drive as any can be used to load up diagnostic software when it is damaged.

So, Remove all disks, USB devices(including printers), CD's or DVD's et al and try again. If this still happens with everything removed/disconnected, then your problem is with the Windows install or the harddrives physical components. If it works try reattaching/inserting the disks and devices one at a time then restarting and you will figure out which one is causing the problem.

If it didn't work you will need to get to a hardware shop and have them test the hard drive to see if it's faulty. If not contact Toshiba and order a set of recovery disks, when they arive insert disk one then turn the machine on and an onscreen wizard will walk you through re-installing. If they determine there's a hardware issue with the drive, either buy/warranty a new drive then order the disks from Toshiba and follow the above instructions.

Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

How to fix boot failure on a toshiba satellite l55t-B5334


I would check the boot order is correct and the hdd is not damaged. If all looks OK and still won't boot, insert your system disc in the DVD drive and boot from there selecting repair system as the option.

When I start my Laptop I, the screen comes with a message, "ALERT: System protection failure! Password =


You may try to insert the original operating system disc and fixing the boot process. Some computers do not offer an operating disc, thus you may have to use the Restore function. When booting, hit the F8 key and start up in the safe mode. Search for the Restore function and go from there. The problem is you did not state what version of Windows your using and it is difficult to navigate without that information.

What you can do is attempt to repair the system using System Restore or startup repair. I would suggest trying startup repair first.



Method 1: Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

8. Click Finish to restore the system.


Method 2: Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

7. (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next.

The power was turned off. Now get a warning: system resume failure. What to do to restart?


When you get the resume failure message, push and hold the power button until the unit turns itself off (usually around 5 seconds). Once it is turned off, press the power button again to turn it on and it should boot right into windows for you.
