WHAT IS PHOENIX TRUSTEDCORE (tm) setup utility mean?


Some hardware or software has upset the serial number used by the BIOS (phoenix) to guarantee that the computer is the same as it was when it was bought. This is the trusted bit.
The setup utility needs to recalculate this number to include the new equipment, consult your laptop manufacturer Toshiba, via the support function.

Dropped laptop today, switched it on and it starts up, but comes up with black screen with following message: Boot from AHCI CD Rom: operating system not found But before that screen comes up...


It sounds like you might have damaged your HDD when you dropped it. It's saying that the operating system isn't found, and it's trying to boot from your CD ROM. Either that or you might have left a disk in the CD drive, I'm guessing that is unlikely but worth checking maybe. By pressing F2 at start up and going into your BIOS (the Phoenix SecureCore Setup you talked about) Without changing any settings look through it until you find the HDD, or the BOOT options, if it lists a HDD don't get excited as it should be there even if it was damaged and is now unusable. Did you have your laptop on Hibernate, they say to shut them down if your transporting. Since when they are off they park the HDD, but when they are in Hibernate the HDD really isn't off it's on stand by. Making it easy to damage since the HDD is ready to read or write at the click of a button.

Setup utility


I think you are referring to the BIOS setup. The BIOS is the very first code that is ran after you trigger POWER, and controls all of the hardware in the PC, and without this 64k of code, your computer would not run. No display, no nothing. There have been some viruses known to infect the BIOS, the most famous being CIH, which formats the hard drive, empties the CMOS memory (also part of the BIOS, where settings such as time are stored) and re-flashes the BIOS, rendering the PC unusable. Luckily, this only infects Windows 9x machines with ATX motherboards.

Hello, My 8 month old "Mini 9" Inspiron 910 shows "operating system not found" on boot-up and bios shows HDD size of 0MB. Fixed shows STEC PATA 8GB-(PM). Any suggestions? I realize re-installing XP is my...


Hi there,

This means that your HDD is corrupted. This could have happened if your computer was dropped and sometimes it happens even when nothing has happened to it. If you take your computer to a repairman, he will be able to fix the HDD for you. Do not attempt to open the HDD yourself as the smallest piece of dust will ruin the HDD. The repairman will open it in a 100% dust proof room.

What might have happened is that the arm in your HDD has fallen on to the magnetic part of the HDD itself. Most of the data should be able to be recovered. If your laptop is only 8 months old, it should still be under warranty so i recommend that you take it to your suppler and they should fix it for free.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

Computer freezes when trying to detect S-Ata drive


Hi Eamon, download Samsungs drive setup utility, tools from Samsungs web site. Creat a bootable floppy drive setup disk or a CD bootable disk.
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html
Enable the SMART function using the setup software.
If you are going to use the Samsung drive as the primary master drive as the new C:\ you will need to enter the bios & set the Hard Disk Boot Priority, page 30 in you're manual to see the Samsung drive.
Connect only the Samsung into the system. Boot the system & use Samsung's software to setup the drive & format.
Disconnect any other hard disk drives that may have windows installed in it.
