Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
The Toshiba cannot find a boot disk, this problem could be caused by the BIOS could not detect the hard drive because has lost the configuration or the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
Check the BIOS configuration to see if it has detected the hard disk and some BIOS have a utility to test the hard disk, if this is available then run the hard disk test.
Another way to test the hard disk, remove the hard disk from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see it as and external hard drive and you can open the folders and files the the hard drive is OK and the fault is most likely the laptop's motherboard.
If the computer cannot detect or open the files on the external USB adapter then the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to be replaced in the Toshiba and Windows installed to get the laptop working again.
