I'm trying to do a full recovery on the Toshiba Satellite and it gets to about 40% and another window pops up and say "OUTPUT A:GHOST.ERR ?. If I choose yes, nothing happens. If I choose no, nothing happens. Can you help?
Hello we had the same issue . tried caling Toshiba support. They will demand Min $35 dollars just to talk if you dont have warranty.Worst Customer Support ever seen. WE were getting rebooted atleast 6 to 7 times. The solution to overcome is this. Just remove the battery and let PC cool for one HR. Clean the Recovery disk Properly to clean the dust and after that take the PC near the fan and point it in such a way that the fan side gets cooled with the Fans wind..
Put the recovery disk again and see the magic...You will see 100% formatting done...I think we should go for customer support rather than the stupid people who told us to take to the Tech center saying our Hard Drive was dead...So dont rely on them Google it and will see lots of good users rely and give it a try...You wil get through. Im sure:)

Toshiba usually ships laptops with recovery cd/dvd sets.
If you have captioned recovery set, make sure to make a backup copy.
If this series no has recovery cd/dvd, must be a hidden partition for recovery in the hard drive. For make a recovery disc find the sotware loaded in the laptop (must be there) and make a recovery disc set. Be aware that some manufacturers limit the use of this particular software (you only can make one cd/dvd recovery set).
In the worst scenario that the recovery partition is no present you must load Norton Ghost v14.0 and make a full backup to one external hard drive (USB) in order to recover te operative system, drivers and software in case of disaster.
Try the "Multimedia Toshiba Utility" on this page: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modItemList.jsp?BV_SessionID=%40%40%40%401586327957.1221724559%40%40%40%40&BV_EngineID=ccchadefejgdgdicgfkceghdgngdgmn.0&ModelDLOS=null&ModelDLCat=null&BV_SessionID=%40%40%40%401586327957.1221724559%40%40%40%40&BV_EngineID=ccchadefejgdgdicgfkceghdgngdgmn.0&ListType=Model&ct=DL&moid=1702271&rpn=PSAF0U&OrderBy=D&PublicStartIndex=25&PrivateStartIndex=0&PublicCutOff=&PrivateCutOff=&AddOldPublicItems=false&AddOldPrivateItems=undefined&all_docs=true#PublicList It's listed as a Camera utility. Good luck.
Unfortunately you Windows OS crashed. Try pressing the F8 once you boot up. It should lead you to an option screen where you will be choosing SAFE MODE only. If you can boot up to windows under safemode you can do system restore or uninstall the program you just installed.
If you can't go into safe mode. Use the recovery disc. Pop disc 1 then upon booting the computer, press F12 to load boot menu then choose the dvd/cd drive. Once it finished loading, choose advanced option instead of Toshiba recovery wizard and it will lead you to system restore.
If both of the steps failed, unfortunately, you need to do full system recovery. Just do step 2 and choose Toshiba recovery Wizard, Out of the box state. This will delete all your data.
If the discs are clean and pretty much scratch free, then this is most likely a bad hard drive. If you have another PC or laptop, try burning copies of the recovery cds and then use those. If the problem remains, you will need a new hard drive.
I did a Google on your error 437 and it would seem that this problem pops up only if:
1. using SYMANTEC (Ghost); or
2. using Original Toshiba Restore Disc.
a. the restoration procedure needs to write a log file somewhere (A:?) which does not exist and therefore waits;
b. the restore disc is probably corrupted; and/or
c. the Ghost image is corrupted.
A few things you can try:
* On another computer, check the integrity of your recovery disc;
* Get hold of another Windows installer and do a complete, clean, fresh install (you will have to use your original Win numbers @ the bottom of your laptop). You will only need the recovery disc for your hardware drivers; or
* Call Toshiba Support and get assistance. I was made to understand that they provide replacement Recovery Disc (>50USD).
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
