Question about Toshiba Tecra S3 Notebook
When laptop boots displays "select bay error " and no optical drive shows in windows
Try restarting the notebook and press F2 to get to the BIOS and look if the optical drive was detected, if not place the WIndows instalation disc into the drive then reboot the laptop and press F12 then chose to boot from CD, then press any key to start the instalation of Windows. Agree by pressing F8 then when you are asked what would you like to do press install Windows, on the next screen you will be asked again what action would you like to take, chose to repair the existing windows, and follow the onscreen instructions, this will not delete any files on your laptop but will infact repair windows. By chosing to install new windows, at the start the system will load the default drivers which infact will reisntall the CD /optical drives. Also before you try all this you could just go to Device Manger and check if any drivers are market with red "X" or the yellow exclamation mark under the DVD.CD drives. This should resolve the issue as it seems to be that windows is corrupted and cannot load the optical drives or detect them. Good luck
