No operating system loaded-toshiba equium m50 244

My computer switches on, but fails to load the operating system. Before this happened, it would crash frequently quoting an atisdva file or something like that for the error. What I would like to know is: has my hard disk failed completely and whether I should buy and install a new one?

Hard drive crash, drive defects in the area where the O/S is, or, corrupted O/S files.

Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic software and run it. It will examine your drive and give you an evaluation.

If it tells you the drive is fine, the either a complete reload, or a repair will get you back up and running. Whether you will be able to recover any of your data, will depend on the drive condition.

Does "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu. " erase my memory or files from computer?


No, delete restoration data just removes data that was saved just before your computer crashed or shut down without going through the normal shut down procedure. The operating system makes little temporary files while you are working on something so that it can restore them if the system goes down. Nothing happens to your real data files, documents, music, pictures, videos or memory.

I can install the games, but when I try and play them I get an app crash error and the computer kicks me out of the game. It will not even load the title screen. Please help. I'm using windows 7


This is due to that the game you are trying to play has an crashed file in its runtime environment. This pack of game will never work on any computer and with any type of operating system. You need to buy a new pack of game which has complete and right files. Sometimes game packs have missing files in their installation environment but some have corrupted files in their runtime environment. It happens during the writing of pack to disk when the installation pack is not original. Try to get the original pack or disk from a well known shop.

Enter the BIOS and ensure that the Hard drive is indeed being seen by the computer.

Open up the chassis side panel and ensure that all conections are making contact.

Old machine, trying to rehab for daughter. Turn on, seet Toshiba screen, then see "Disk read error, cntrl+alt+del to reboot"


You have one of two problems. Either your operating system crashed and you will need to get windows reinstalled on the computer or your hard drive crashed.
If the hard drive crashed you will need to replace the hard drive first and then also reinstall windows.
In both cases it is needed to reinstall windows.
This is probably something a computer technician should take care of.

It will be easier if you will have it checked with any computer technician. They will normally charge a very minimal fee for this very common kind of problem.

Be sure to be there when he checked your computer, so he can also teach you about it.

PC crashes when i switch user


reboot to safe mode using f8 right before the windows logo screen at boot comes on. after on this, run a virus and spyware removal program. i recommend www.superantispyware.com for this.

this problem is mostlikely due to a virus or spyware. If all else fails, put your windows xp cd in and when this loads, select install windows then let it detect installed windows. select "repair" as your option for a repair reinstall, this will fix damaged or mising windows files.
