Toshiba laptop wont boot correctly. Upon start up it flashes blue screen. Does not recognize optical drive to try to fix windows 8 or reinstall windows 8.1.


Sounds like the hard drive has an issue. Do you hear a very faint clicking sound when it tries to boot up? put your ear near the front of the laptop, bottom of keyboard area and listen for a clicking sound. if you hear a click click click click sound repeating continuously, its a failing hard drive. If you hear ths sound, you will need to buy a replacement hard drive. Replacing it is easy. Turn your laptop upside down and look for the small door that houses your hd. Unscrew the door and take hard drive out. Now you take this hard drive to Staples and ask them for a replacement. Once you know what you need, whether Sata or IDE hard drive, you can buy a replacement cheaply on eBay or buy it from any computer store. pop the hard drive back in and then you should be able to install a new operating system on the laptop. If you do not hear a clicking sound, then you may have a corrupted windows boot. Have you tried booting in safe mode? as you turn the power on, hold down the f8 button. You will get a screen asking if you want to boot in safe mode. Select, safe mode with networking. If it boots normally in safe mode, you can then put in your windows cd and do a repair. If you cannot boot into safe mode, and you have tried replacing hard drive, but cd/dvd is still not working, then you may need o take it in or diagnostics. You can buy very cheaply on eBay, a connector that will allow you to connect your hard drive to another computer via USB. This will allow you to test the hard drive and also possibly get data of of it, provided the hard drive is not too badly damaged. I hope this helps.. Please ask any questions you might have.

My laptop is a used Toshiba satellite and it needs a operating system it won't even load to the desktop screen I don't have a disk either what do I do


The best thing would be a partition on the factory-installed hard drive that contains the OS and recovery data, you can boot to that. If it's a new hard drive, then you need a new operating system (OS) for the laptop.
You'll need to buy and install Windows 7. Put the Win7 disc in the laptop's CD drive, and have the most experienced computer person you know do the rest. Be patient with that person.
The place where you buy Windows 7 can probably do all of the setup work for you for a nominal fee.

I have an hp nx9010 and the hard drive appears to have failed if I am buying a new hard drive what type do I need? IDE or SATA and should I look for a certain rotation speed? The current hard drive is a...


This model laptop is installed with an IDE 40Gb hard drive.
You can use a faster hard drive but the BIOS limits the maximum size hard drive you can install.
Check the specification of this laptop for the maximum size hard drive you can install.

I have a dell latitude E6400 that will not reboot. Can I buy a new hard drive for it....will that work..............


Hello
you dont need to buy new hard drive until you confirmed that your hard drive has no more, for the purpose you need check in CMOS setup, if it is detected by computer then there is a chance to re-use the hard disk, you just need to re-install windows, during installation format the hard disk after re-partition.
if this method fails then you need to buy new one, good luck
do rate the solution if got help

The best option is to install WinXP on the new drive, partition the drive
C:, D:, E: etc
and use C for WinXP
Once you are done with WinXP install Win7 in D

let me know

I only have a 4 GB Hard Drive. I need more space.


Hello,

There will be more works to install an internal hard drive. You need to back up your data in the old drive, install the operating system in new drive, and copy back your data. I will think buying an external hard drive will be better options (or an usb hard drive enclosure and hard drive buying separately).

ACER HARD DRIVE CRASH


you can easily buy a new HDD at buy.com or newegg.com but checking the old one and installing the new one are a little harder. The drive is simply a small SATA drive and can be plugged into any newer PC. Techs use a USB adapter, but if you know something about it, installing a drive isn't that hard. You may need to enable in in BIOS though.

Installing a new one is a simple matter, but then you have to install windows, which means you'll have to boot from the CD [and HAVE a windows install CD].

Good luck either way.
