The first step is to check the BIOS to see if your hard drive is listed. If so, is it set to be the first boot device. To enter the BIOS, use the F2 option when prompted.

If the hard drive is not present, it's either come loose, or the drive's controller has failed.

Also, if you can use the F12 option to boot to a CD/DVD drive, use another computer to download the Ultimate Boot CD iso from http://ultimatebootcd.com, and then burn it to a CD. This will create a bootable diagnostic CD that you can use to run diagnostics of your hard drive.

Let me know how this works for you.

Sincerely,
Bryan

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p205d-s7438/4505-3121_7-32658635.html

Just by comparison of the specs the data suggests only a Processor change, Ram Memory amount, and Harddrive size.

Uses a Socket S1 processor socket on both model's motherboards,

Both models use an AMD 690V graphics chipset, (ATI Mobility Radeon X1200)

The answer is Yes.

Hi,
This means that the Hard Drive no longer takes any information at all. Since you have the Recovery Disc for your computer, consider replacing the HDD. and install the Recovery disc. Tapping F12 after you pressed the power button to turn the computer on is actually a very god step that you tried, this will lead you to the Advanced Boot Manager where you need to select CD/DVD/ODD to where you will boot so you can install the Operating System using the recovery disc.
However, it seems we are having an issue with the HDD itself and so it needs to be replaced.

Screen dim after a few minutes of running.


If its on battery then it may be set in control panel/power settings to dim when the batery is low.
Try to adjust the settings to max.
When it dims if you move the lid or very gently flex the lid does it change?
may be a loose connection loosing contact when it heats up

How doI reset my Toshiba Laptop with Vista 64 bit to factory settings?


There are two ways to reset your Toshiba Laptop to factory settings.
First is using Recovery Media Disc and the second is the hidden partition on your hard drive.

If you're going to use Recovery Media Disc follow these steps:

If you have two or more recovery media disc try to insert first the disc that has a label of 1 of 2 or 1 of 3. Then turn of your laptop.
Make sure that the disc is inside. After that try to find the letter "C" key on your keyboard. Now turn on your laptop and keep tapping the letter "C" key. If you have successfully accessed the Boot Menu choose Toshiba Recovery Wizard.
After choosing the Toshiba Recovery Wizard there will be a big warning screen that will appear choose the option yes and after that you will have a series of option. Remember to choose always the first option after the big warning screen appears.

That's it. You will have a message that the Windows is initializing files.
That process will take 1-2 hours for it to finish.

Hidden Partition on the Hard Drive.

Turn on the laptop and as soon as the laptop turns on press and hold down the number 0 key (the number 0 it should be on the top of the keyboard beside the number 9 key) keep 0 pressed until Toshiba leading innovation appears. Usually you will have a beeping sound when you are trying to access the System Recovery of the Hard Drive. That's an indication that you have successfully accessed the Systrem Recovery of the laptop.
Wait for the screen that say Windows is loading files.
After that you will see a big warning screen the choose yes and
Choose 1st option always.
Cx able to initialize the partition.
Disconnect cables and turn off the wireless switch.
Recovery would take 1-2 hours for it to finish.
