I have a Toshiba as well, in order to boot from the dvd drive you will have to restart your machine, then when you see the Toshiba logo at startup press F12, you will see a small menu. Select your dvd rom drive from the list and press enter, if this does not work than there is still another way, keep me posted.

    Sounds to me like the drive will need to be replaced, but there is another way to recover the system to factory settings. power down the computer then turn it back on while holding the zero key down,
    this should bring you to the Recovery partition on the drive, provided your HDD was setup this way to begin with. THIS might help. Good Luck

    Pressing the 0 was the only thing that worked when my toshiba would not cooperate in any other way. THANKS

I use toshiba satellite A305-S6872 laptop would not load OS


you will most likely have to go into the recovery console to fix the problem or even re-install.

The other two solutions are to either boot up in safe mode to correct the problem by trying to revert back to a saved well working time, or take out pci cards and reboot always taking out another pci card until you find the problem.

if nothing works, re-install or fix in recovery console. <<< or >>>

BEST Solution
at re-install, choose repair windows.

Yes, the Toshiba A305-S6872 has a built in modem. It is the only port where you can plug in a phone line.

Toshiba A305-6825 laptop prolem (no visible CD/DVD Rom drive). In Device Manager: HL-DT-ST dvdram gsa-t40F ATA device error. Media test failure. There appears to be CD/DVD combo drive firmware...


You seem to be onto things (though your problem classification was generic instead of for your Toshiba model A305.) Install all the updated drivers for your laptop from the laptop's support site (Toshiba's, that is) so you can use your drive. Drives fail sometimes, and you could try sticking an old movie or something in there instead of nothing, but it is likely it is just the missing driver.
