Have you made any changes to your bios? usually when i see this come up the bios has been changed or the hard drive has gone bad. you can try unscrewing the panel on the bottom of your toshiba that has a cylinder looking symbol next to it to check the hard drive. but most of the time like i said, this happens is because the hard drive is not being recognized/checking in during P.O.S.T. which usually means bad hard drive


Good Luck!

I have a Toshiba HDDR500EO3X...nothing to connect it to my computer and the external port is so small I have no idea what I need to connect to my HP computer


Toshiba, for HP forum, OK.
ahhhhhh its and exernal hard disk drive and chassis.
mine has USB cable and Esata cable and power.
yours has 1 cable new. usb.
what HP computer is it , which one. is it model numbers on the service tag. 1000s of pCs made by HP from 1982 to now, endless list.
i cant guess ever.

500mb (tiny) external drive.
by TOShiba.
listed as obsolete at Newegg. so is not new, (NOS?)

i guess you got it for free? and now the USB cable is missing
that it?
here is one cable, this fits the tiny HDD end
and then fits all PC made, (no dont fit cell phones)
try to know there are many classes of USB connectors
(lots) my guess you lost the comes with it cable
or you PC has no standard full size USB jacks.
some super tiny thin notebooks can not have full sizes USB jacks
so need a special USB mini cable, unseen by me, no help.

Toshiba portege 3500 tablet saya tidak bisa booting lewat external cd room .. yang ada di layar monitor terbaca : intel(R) boot agent version 4.1.06 copy right (C) 1997-2002, intel...


It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot.
Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS
Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables
If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.

Toshiba satellite p25 s5093. won't boot.


The system cannot find your hard drive so it is trying to boot from the next device which is thinks is a network drive. Check the attachment of the hard drive, sometimes they can come loose from the interface. Remove the hard drive and place it back. If the machine still cannot read the drive, try another hard drive to see if the drive is the problem or is it a problem with the interface. Make sure to remove any discs from the cd/dvd players and make sure no usb network adapters are in it while booting. Check the boot order again.

Well me cd dvd romdose not work well the drive dose but it dose not read my cds


Please check the connection inside maybe it is just loose. If that is SATA connection that is prone to disconnection but if that is IDE cable inside maybe cable loose contack. Try to open the PC and then pull and insert the cable firmly. Restart the computer.

My toshiba lap top starts up as normal then the msg media test faiure and no bootable device whats wrong


The laptop isn't seeing the hard drive. It has either bounced loose (doubtful) or the hard drive is defective. You can open panels on laptop and find the hard drive, remove and then replace it and see if it reads. Failing this check to see if it's still on warranty or buy another one similar to yours.

I am having a problem with my Toshiba Satellite A135 Laptop. It will not boot up and it says Media test Failure check cable. Does this mean my hard drive went out?


Most likely, yes. First check the cabling and make sure the cables are tight on the hard drive and the motherboard. If they are, then your hard drive is bad.
