Trying to start from scratch

My Satellite was giving me all kinds of problems so I decided to reformat, although I quite certain  I did something wrong.   I pulled the hard drive form the pc and connected it to my desktop pc to reformat the drive.  Upon reinstallation of Satellite harddrive I have had no success getting even into the bios menu.  At first I was gettng  this error mssg:   NTDLR missing     ,my search instructed me to add certain files via usb or cd-rom boot.   This also with no success.  I then tried to paste those files to drive via connection to my desktop.  I now get    ...missing or corrupt:  \system32\hal.dll.     Please help!

Soundbar doesn't pair with wireless subwoofer


It occurs to me that if the sub is no longer sending signals back to the unit then it won't find it. I am certain that it should be easy to have the sub repaired so that it does send out the signals.

I cant reformat my toshiba harman kardon?what seems to be the problem?


Try loading it into safe mode, to do this turn off your computer turn it back on and as it starts up hit F8 over and over until you get a black screen with white text that you can scroll through. Then look for something that says "Start windows in safe mode" and select that with the arrow keys to move and the enter button to select. If windows does not enter in safe mode, you may want to post clearer information as to what happens when it loads/doesn't load.

Western Digital 1TB hard drive, worked all day, now giving me error, "reformat disk before using".. do I dare press yes?


Only if you want to lose all your data, if you just bought this earlier return it exchange for another one, this is kind of a bad sign of hard drive health. Did you bump it or drop it? if you cant or dont want to swap it out i'd suggest shutting down your computer and powering down the drive, then plugging it all back in and starting it up, you'd be amazed how often that fixes issues with new products. If you're ok with starting from scratch you can certainly reformat to attempt to fix a formatting issue but it will erase all data on the drive.

Hope that helps, Good luck

WOULD LIKE TO REFORMAT MY Satellite A215 S7462 BUT DON'T HOW


Please try this. Load the first disk then power off. You can hold down F12 after power on then select the CD/DVD drive then hit ENTER. Windows will be loading files then always select the first one for each set of options. If you still have the same result, try tapping on C intead after power on. Hope this helps. Thanks.

The disc is unreadable


Is it just dusty, or are there scratches?
If it is just dust, clean is with something soft- t-shirts work quite well ni the abscence of anything else.Make sure to clean from the middle to the edges in lines, not circles.
For small scratches, a sometimes very useful solution is toothpaste.Put some toothpaste by the scratch and rub it it, then wash of excess toothpaste and dry the disc.The toothpaste fills in the scratch, leading to a temporary fix.
