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.

Acer aspire 7736/7736z series wont boot and operating system not found. Tried f8 just keeps beeping. Help.


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Acer computer says no bootable device what do I do?


Remove any USB devices and any CDs from drives and try to boot. If that doesn't work boot (Press DEL or F1 when the Acer screen comes on into setup and check that it's seeing the hard drive in the BIOS and is booting from the HD. If the HD is corrupted you may need to use a restore disc

Wont bootup at all keeps saying BOOTMRG is missing


  1. Boot off the Windows Vista DVD
  2. Click Next at the first prompt select the language and click next.
  3. Select the link in the lower left-hand side for "Repair your computer"
  4. The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory.( If there's more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again.)
  5. Click the first link for "Startup Repair" (Or the last link "command prompt" if you want to use the alternative method as described below)
  6. The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.

Alternatively you can choose the Command Prompt option instead to fix the boot only:
  1. Follow step 1-4 above
  2. on step 5 choose The last link "Command prompt"
  3. type bootrec /fixboot and hit enter.(space between bootrec and / )
  4. The installation process will repair the boot sector.

Sounds like the hard drive has crashed. You can try pressing F8 repeatedly as soon as you start the boot process and see if that gets you to the windows repair option. From there you can try to do a repair or restore to factory settings. Otherwise buy a new hard drive and restore with your recovery cd.

Toshiba notebook HDD problem


I think you may find your hard drive has failed? I suggest that you replace the hard drive with a new one. But, just to check.. remove the hard Drive from the machine... (usually acessable under the machine via a couple of screws and usually just slides out etc) Then try to "Boot" the machine from CD or floppy.. (on say ya Windows XP CD, choosing Boot from CD from PC menu) if it does.. then it IS ya HD, if not then ya may have a Motherboard fault. So do NOT change the drive.. at this juncture I would suggest ya go to a reputable PC repairer and ask for a "Quote" for the fix, and an explanation of what is/was wrong.

Buying a hard drive for the Averatec 3200 Series


I have a tip. Don't forget to set up the drive as master or slave (depending on what you want the drive for). I personally have forgotten to double check this on numerous occasions (its always the simplest thing you overlook with everything) only relizing when I have the case screwed back on and am trying to boot the drive up.
