Toshiba satellite 1805 s204 "media test failure, check cable"....

I have a toshiba satellite 1805 s204 and everytime we turn it on it states "media test failure, check cable" and "exiting intel pxe rom" insert system disk in drive. One of my children spilled water on the keyboard. I inserted a new hard drive and keyboard but still doesn't work. Can someone help me?

    It won't let me type anything because it states press any key to continue after the error message. So how do I type msconfig??

    Here's what you need to do: from the command line, type msconfig. Click on the startup tab and look at the stuff that is trying to start. Chances are there is something that the computer thinks is attached which isn't. This is sorta difficult to diagnose without knowing what all that stuff that starts up is. I can help, but you'll need to tell me what you see. I take it that you can actually run the computer once you get past this message. If possible, we can do this remotely, but we'll need to coordinate it. Othewise, we both are gonna do a lot of typing.

Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck

My Toshiba Satellite 1805-S204 turns off when i'm trying to open DVD-ROM bay. Sometimes i can open it but than notebook turns off when i'm closing DVD-ROM bay. I want to disassemble 1805-S204 to find out...


I suspect, if you haven't got it working on the AC adaptor when this happens, that maybe the battery is low power. If it does it when the AC adaptor is being used then I think you are right, the DVD ROM is faulty.
Remove the battery and AC adaptor.
Remove the Memory cover.
There is a singel screw that holds the DVD drive bay in. Remove the screw and pull the drive out.
Replace the drive with and IDENTICAL model and that should be that.
Hope this helps.

Toshiba 1805-S204 CMOS Battery Replacement


If you have the laptop apart, look for the Volume control board. . Then to the side of it you will see the cmos battery (actually called a RTC battery) taped down, with a cable plugged into the system board. Cable is plugged into PJ752 connector on the system board.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Boot volume error


A stop error indicating UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME is nearly always symptomatic of a hard drive that has died. Take your PC to a local technician to be serviced.

I find the best way to remove a bootup password is to remove all batteries (main and small, cylindrical ones). That clears the clock, also, but should be no problem. Check under RAM and wireless network cards.

Hi!
If you already found the cmos battery, then try to check its "rating" and size to accomodate inside the board. After that fix it as it should be.
