Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook

2 Answers

I have a A15-S127 Toshiba laptop. It was not working. I bought a Windows XP pro OS to install. It did not want to install. I wiped the drive and tried F2 F8 Del. and it will sometimes start to load the program> it reaches a point and stops at an Error. If I keep at it it will get past that one and will continue on until it stops at another. I have gotten as far as it actaully starting to load windows up to 65% then it stopped again. Why would a new program have so many errors? So I am guessing I have a hardware problem. Any Thoughts would be appreciated. Lee

    Hi Jamil sorry to take so long. I have ordered another Os. I am going to try a linus program because they are cheap. I found by holding esc. while powering up I have access to the control menu, althought that has not helped yet. I have a Spotmau repair disc and it boots up fine so the drive is ok. I am hoping its a bad disc, although the disc was fifty bucks! Lee

    Hi Lee, 1. I believe XP cd you are using has some scratches or it has some bad sectors. Have you tried to use another OS CD? 2. Secondly, it could be a defective CD-ROM itself. I will recommend you to try another Windows XP CD first. Let me know if this helped. Regards, Jamil Ahsan

You need to get into 'setup' (watch the screen as it starts) and delete the hard drive, then reinstall it. Be sure to save and exit. When windows starts to install, it will see an un-formatted drive and offer to format it. Select 'NT' file type and let it proceed. Windows will install as on a fresh drive.

Hi. Try to download any linux, i.e. Mandriva. Install it on USB stick (4GB), its very easy. Then you can start you computer from it. You can use one of the software included in linux to check hard drive or just simple fill the hard drive to full with some data (movies, music, photos...) and look for any errors or speed decreases. The normal format, not the quick one, can be helpfull as well.

If the issue is getting the OS into the drive, see if you can access the BIOS and see if the hard drive can be detected. If it is not detected you may have a bad disk.
