Question about Toshiba Satellite M305-S4826 Laptop
Do you have a restore CD/DVD that came with it?
If not get a Windows XP (I assume it is running XP) and boot to the CD.
When it comes up into the setup screen, run it like you are going to re-install the windows.
Right at the first, it will give you a message. Quickly hit the F-2 key and go to a command prompt.
It should look something like .....
Type in cd.. (dots are important)
Then it will read C:\
At that prompt, type in: fixboot
It will ask you if you wish to write a new boot sector.
Type Y or yes and then Enter
It will come up after and say that a new boot sector has been written to the drive.
Remove the CD and reboot the system.
It should come up into Windows XP.
If not, then you may have a more serious problem and need to 1) totally reload windows or 2) worst case, replace the hard drive.
