IDE 1 is the CDRom (or any optical device attached). IDE 0 (zero) is the Hard drive. So this message is telling you there is a problem with the DVD/CD-Rom, that has halted the boot process. Now you have no choice but to go to BIOS (read startup screen to find the procedure, usually DEL, F2, or F12 keys) and see if the problem can be corrected there (or if not, disable the drive, save change, and try rebooting again). If this is not possible, then you might try booting from an external device (floppy, CD, USB etc) if your system allows that (and if you have the boot software/media). Otherwise, you must remove the drive, in order to regain your desktop (pass the halt stage in boot process). Here is how to remove the CD:

Underneath the laptop, there will be a screw about 4 inches in, on a centyer line direct from the DVD/CD tray panel. Remove this screw. Insert a pin or paper clip (carefully, and STRAIGHT in!) to the small hole next to the CD tray release button. This opens the tray manually. Pull it out to the full open position, then GENTLY pull further, and the whole drive will release from the laptop.

Once you have reached the desktop, you should try to remove the previous driver if possible, via start menu/settings/control panel/system (or r-click my computer and select properties). In system control panel, there is a hardware settings tab. Here you can remove or disable hardware. Try adding a "generic CD-Rom", so the DVD might get past boot process when you reinstall it (later, below).

Now, try to start the laptop without DVD/CD. If it starts normally, your driver change was incompatible, or possibly, in the process of changes you did something that impaired the drive or its ROM (or perhaps needs to be cleaned).

Now try reinstalling the CD Rom drive (no screws yet, just insert fully). If you are still at the same halt, you have cut yourself out of using this CD, unless perhaps tou can reboot with a windows CD while the drive is installed, and let windows detect and install a PROPER driver.

If that is not possible, you need another DVD/CD drive. You can also buy a replacement or cheap older model for testing system at any legitimate advanced PC shop, or many used computer parts stores. Try the drive before you buy, just slide in and mount a CD/DVD. (you may have a special adapter that must be removed from the old OEM drive and attached to new one, and the tray cover may need to be switched to allow the CD to close for testing)

Regardless of the outcome of any of the above, please post your results, and the complete text of the black boot screen here, so I can analyze the problem -or any other possibilities that may be indicated by the post dialog.

LAN CARD DRIVER FOR TOSHIBA SATELLITE 2805-S202.


Assuming you're talking about the mini-PCI Intel 10/100 Ethernet card that's built in, Toshiba's support site only has the drivers for Win98SE:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=1073810429&rpn=PS280U&modelFilter=&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663.

This driver can also be used for Windows 98 and ME.

Now, if you're running Windows 2000, you can use the LAN card driver for Windows 2000 under model # 2805-S201. It will work 100%.

If you're running XP, you don't need to install a driver as it is automatic.

Toshiba satellite dvd-DOM driver not working - re: your reply


Try this first. put the Windows CD in the computer then restart your computer. If the selection comes up PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD then that means the CDROM still works. If it does not then that means your DVDROM is indeed defective. A simple option that you can do is order a DVDROM from the manufacturer. Its only held together by 2 screws so its easy to replace. So you dont have to reload windows.

Also check your BIOS. When you turn on the computer an option for SETUP is there go into setup and see if the DVDROM is still detected.

I think the peoblem is that you need to set the cdrom as first boot device, go into bios (F2 or Del on boot up) and enter advanced cmos settings and you will find that the HDD (Hard disk) is set as first boot device, change this with up/down keys or + - keys to cdrom as first boot device. save settings and exit for a restart with cd in drive.
