The hard drive should have diagnostics under the bios run on it..

get in the setup area right at the beginning on the starting process... like hit F2.. right away at boot up


see if there are built in diagnostics for testing your hard drive... this is usually the case


if not

get a copy of seagate or western digital diagnostics testing software and place the software correctly on a cd... boot from the cd... and execute the diagnostics on the hard drive in the laptop

this will determine if the drive is good or not

tell me the answer and we will solve the problem from there

Reinstall the affected software program to replace the damaged or missing .DLL file.

You can change the default printer to any other printer that you have connected to your computer. This will simplify your printing tasks, since you can select the most frequently used printer to be the default. These instructions are for Windows 98. Instructions for other operating systems or versions may vary.

Click on the Start menu and click on Settings, then Printers. A window will appear showing the icons of all the printers that are installed on your system. Right-click on the icon for the printer you want to use as the default. A menu will appear. Click on Set as Default. To make sure the correct printer is now set as the default, right-click on the printer icon again. When the menu opens, a check mark should appear before Set as Default. Default Printer for All New Users b> Microsoft Windows supports a number of printers connected to any one machine. Windows allows users to customize their preferred printer for one-click and quick printing. If you create a new user on a Windows system, the default printer will not be set. Windows 7 allows you to configure a default printer for all users with a quick command-line setting. You must have Administrative access to the system and have the printer configured to run this command. b> Click "Start" and type "Command Prompt" in the Start menu. Press "SHIFT"+"ENTER" to run the Command Prompt with Administrator privileges. Click "Start" and type "Print Management." Press "Enter." Look at the name listed under "Printer Name" for the printer you would like to make default. Double-click it to open the "Properties" dialog. Right-click the highlighted "Printer Name" label and click "Copy." Return to your console Window and type "ntprint /setdefault name=<printer name>" and press "Enter." Replace <printer name> with the printer name on your clipboard. You can paste this by right-clicking the console window and clicking "Paste."

Some applications may be causing a conflict. Many times runtime errors are a result of incompatibility between two or more programs. Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys simultaneously to open Windows Task Manager. From the "Applications" tab, close each open application until the runtime error is resolved. Check for patches, bug fixes or upgrades by visiting the manufacturer's website. Search for your product and determine whether there are downloads to fix the problem your PC is experiencing. When none of the above fixes help, reinstall the troubling program. In severe cases, you may need to reinstall your operating system. Make sure that you back up the other programs and files you want to preserve, which may be erased during the re-installation. Hope this helps.

Windows error recovery on toshiba satellite


Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. You will need to replace it.

You can try to run the Check Disk Utility to see if it can repair the drive.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
