Hi scotty, you'll need to re-check all your data & power cables in the PC. Play it safe, unplug the power from the PC & ground yourself by touching the bare case before grabing any internal connectors.
Than upplug & re-connect every data & power cable on every device in your PC. When finished go into your bios & check that all devices have beed seen by the bios. Hard drive, CDROM drives, floppy drive & or serial ATA SATA drives. While in the bios re-check your Boot order. Most PC's set floppy drive first, CDROM second & SATA / IDE third. Also set plug & play OS to NO. This allows the bios to set IRQ's instead of windows.
Save & exit bios. Load your windows back into the cdrom drive & when you boot the PC your windows should load. You'll see Press any key to load CD.......... Press any key.
This time around preform a quick format on the drive, than install windows.

Have more questions, feel free to ask!

Good Luck & Have a Great Day!

Do you have the PXE error?
The media failure is in the boot sequence, on the toshiba press F12 on boot to change boot priority, select cd/dvd or hard drive, or to preclude from happening, press F2 on boot enter BIOS, select Boot options make sure to set priority as cd/dvd, then hard drive, then network or disable network boot. network booting causes media failure.

How do I fing toshiba A60 equium password


Hi,
pull the battery out and leave it out for a few minutes and then put it back in - if you can reach the bios then reset optimum settings - if there is a windows password then reformatting will get rid of that one.

PS: You should use the Toshiba graphic drivers because these drivers are especially designed for notebook usage.

Upgrade memory problems


are you sure you are putting the proper ram in? don't mix and match speed and size. If you can put it back the way it was and get it to start again, go to www.crucial.com and run the scanner. It will tell you exactly what you need.

Hi. I have a toshiba equium l20-198 laptop dvd burning problems


there could be 4 things that's wrong that I can think of.

1. try this first, go and force xp to take your updated drivers by telling it to install from a specific location->don't search. I will choose the driver to install->have disk->have disk->point it to the driver's location-> continue and it should install that specific driver.
2. the software you're using to burn with isn't playing nicely with your drive. try using cdburnerxp which is a free burning software and test the results of those burns.
3. the firmware on your drive is corrupted(happens from time to time). try installing a new firmware from matshita's website. remember, firmware is different from drivers.
4. the dvd drive itself is busted. try using an external drive to burn a dvd(if you have one available) or switch the drive out and see if that fixes things.

after looking at some forums, seems like this drive is ripe with issues but hopefully it's not a hardware issue in your case.

hope that helps.

No sound devices found


This is a link to the download site for Toshiba drivers. Select the model of your laptop and click Go to retrieve a list of available drivers. Before doing this, however, you need to be certain of the model number of your laptop. Equium is the make of toshiba desktop computers and A60 is the model number for a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Look on the bottom of your laptop for a label that will have the exact model number you need then select that on the website.

Toshiba Satellite A60 wont post


It may be possible to startup in safe mode(press F8 on boot up) and highlight 'Last Known Good Configuration' or highlight 'Start Windows in Safe Mode. If this gets you up try a system restore to before you updated driver or look for the system recovery folder, normally on another partition of your hard drive, that is if you didn't get a recovery cd. If you are not able to get up and running you will need your Windows Installation Disc to either repair the system or do a complete re installation by putting in cd whilst you boot up. It may also be that your HDD is damaged and thats why you can hear the cd drive powering up, looking for a system disc, as it cannot find Windows.
