Question about Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook
Posted on Jan 04, 2009
Mine is a Satellite A65 , similar problem-
If you watch and if it does like mine you will see that it is a bios or hardware problem- It doesnt seem to stop mine from booting past it.

Based on your post/description, your PC is telling you that it can't do a startup because there is nothing to start whatever programs you have, meaning it does not detect your hard disk. This is a component failure and more often than not would require replacement.
You can verify this by inserting a known good bootable disc or FD and determine if the PC would boot. If yes, you have then confirmed that it is indeed an HD issue. Alternately, you can try entering the CMOS/BIOS setup after power own and see if you can manually or auto detect the HD. If the PC can not detect, then again you have confirmed the status of the HD.
Incidentally, you can try using a recovery CD that normally comes with the PC when new or even a Windows installer disc. to see if it will boot using the CD and that the HD can be detected.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you be in need of additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
