Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 Notebook

1 Answer

The DVD drive (UJ-811B) failed in my Toshiba Satellite P25-S609. I replaced it with a UJ-841S from a Toshiba Satellite M45. The drive seems to work fine once WinXP is running, but My BIOS won't boot from it. I don't see a message from BIOS saying that it found the DVD drive, so I think it won't boot because the BIOS doesn't see it. I flashed the P25 to the latest BIOS and was considering flashing the DVD drive. I read that the Toshiba's ise an inverted cable select (CS), so I need to use a Toshiba BIOS. Any ideas?

Hi There,

Your best bet for the least bucks is eBay for a Retail Disc with serial number. Please keep in mind that your machine is old enough to be expecting a hard drive failure and the error code you typed above refers to 2 different types of failures. The first is that you have attached an accessory of some kind which is incompatible with XP. The second, as per Microsoft, is that it is your hard drive that has failed.

However you acquire an XP disc, when you boot from it, let it run Setup to the point where it gives you the option to Repair by pressing the R key. You will have entered a DOS environment. Select the OS you wish to repair and you'll end up at a blinking cursor. Type CHKDSK and hit Enter and CheckDisk will automatically attempt to repair the install and will tell you if the HD is beyond repair if that's the case.

Good Luck

I think it is the inverter to the screen that is bad. I will be trying that to see if it corrects the problem. I think the lamp is good as I do see some (very low) light at the bottom of the screen.

When you say you turn it on, do any of the lights on the laptop light up? Does it make any beeps?

Have you done anything to your laptop or has anything happened that you think might have caused this?

Start off by simplifying your setup as much as possible to eliminate any outside influences.

Remove anything plugged into the laptop. Then unplug power and remove the battery. With battery out and power disconnected, hold down the power switch 15 seconds (this can clear out a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect only AC power and try to power up. Verify your AC power has a power light lit up and all connections are snug.

If no go, try only with the battery and no AC.

Still no go, remove battery and any removable drive (CD, DVD, etc.). Connect AC power and retry boot.

If you feel comfortable removing the hard drive, remove it and retry boot.

If all drives are out, all external and internal devices removed and still no display, try removing the memory and putting it back in (reseating it).

Let me know if that helps or if you need further help.

Here is a phone number too (800) 457-7777. Try that and also maybe the spring you are talking about came from the locking switch on the bottom under the bay, Check that and see if it still springs back for you, Hope that help you out somewhat. Thanks Bear001
