I hope you have the restore CD's for that laptop. Restoring wipes the hard drive and makes it ready to reinstall the software on the CD's. If you don't have a set, you might be able to get a set from Toshiba's website.

SOURCE: Toshiba satellite a105 s4004 cannot boot

if the recovery disk would not run to load the program than your hard drive is probably bad have you been into the machine and seen the hard drive have a look at the front where the wires plug in and there is a slot for jumpers to select the hard drive function make sure its set for master only. most hhard drives will not have a jumper for master setting if there is a jumper make sure its set right .

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite won't boot up

While you have it in safe mode, make sure you back up all your personal data to a cd as is sounds like it is not going to last much longer. After you back up all your information....Documents, Pictures, Music...etc... Then I would reformat the machine with the original installation disc that came with the computer. That should fix the problem. Never even heard of a boot processor :)

its not the hard drive my frined, its the boot loader it has been deleted or it has been compressed the only way to fix this is to use the recovery cd you have, to boot from cd-rom you need to go into bios which is usualy F2 or F5 key, then under boot manager or somthing is the primary and secondary boot, change the primary to CD-ROM, then save it and restart then it should boot from cd-rom then you have do a start-up recovery.

You can follow LavaTech's instructions to set the machine to boot from the cd, and you can load any retail version of windows. You will have to go to http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Product%20Support

With that machine, the recovery disks came with it when new. You can, however, install any retail version of the operating system, and go to www.toshiba.com to download/install the required device drivers.

How can i reset a toshiba satellite pro m15 s405


Most Toshiba laptops with come with the factory software recovery image stored in a special hidden partition on the hard drive of the laptop. The factory software recovery image allows the user to recover the laptop to its factory fresh condition as when it was new.
This partition may also be referred to as the Partitioned Recovery Method or Free Recovery option.
IMPORTANT: The recovery process deletes information stored on the internal storage drive. Be sure to save your work to external media before executing the recovery.
  1. Make sure the computer is turned off ("Shut-down" from the Windows Start menu)
  2. Remove any peripherals such an external mouse, keyboard, monitor, USB flash drive etc.
  3. Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in and working.
  4. On machines with the F key numbers on the top edge of the keys and in White:
    • Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and power up the laptop.
    • Release the 0 (zero) key when the recovery warning screen appears.
    On machines with the F key numbers on the bottom edge of the keys and in Gray:
    • Power up the laptop.
    • When the initial TOSHIBA screen displays, press the F12 key to enter the boot menu.
    • Use the arrow keys to select the HDD Recovery option and press the enter key to begin.
  5. The TOSHIBA recovery wizard warning screen appears stating that when the recovery is executed all data will be deleted and the original factory software image will be rewritten. If the recovery process offers a choice of Operating Systems, select the appropriate one for you.
  6. After you are sure you have everything you want from the laptop saved, click Yes.
  7. When the Toshiba Recovery Wizard opens, the default and recommended option is "Recovery of Factory Default Software".
  8. After selecting your desired recovery method, select Next.
  9. On the next screen you may have recovery method options. The default and recommended method is to Recover to Out of Box state.
  10. Select next to continue.
  11. Follow the on screen instructions as you navigate through the system recovery steps.
  12. The laptop will restart multiple times and install the needed components.

    The previous hard driver was bad. I replaced it with a new hard drive. I used the Toshiba default factory setting to reinstall the softeware and now my laptop will not boot up.


    Toshiba default factory setting can only restor your software if you have backup copy on New Harddrive.

    As your old Harddrive crashed, you have to reinstall Operating system and requie software on new Harddrive.

    A friends toshiba satellite A120 has corrupted it can not get past the log in screen and we do not know what to do


    Turn on the laptop and keep pressing F8, it should take you to a boot menu. From there choose safe mode and see if you can get to a login screen there, if you can get past that login screen and get into windows safe mode then go into the control panel and under users you should be able remove the user accounts you don't want. Then you can reboot the laptop and you should be able to get into windows then normally.

    If you try to go into safe mode and can't get past that login screen then your going to need a program to remove the passwords manually for you.

    Here is a program to help you with that:

    http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

    Its a free download and just follow the instructions to create the cd and then boot the laptop off of the cd and follow the directions on screen.
