By crash and wont load up i can assume your hdd has gone to the big computer in the sky....try running it as a slave behind another hdd and see if you can access it,,,if you can now is a good time to bac k up any wanted data,,,if you cant access it its pretty much over,,,

Toshiba satellite L355-S7812 keeps crashing


One bad lead or faulty connection point can cause a computer to shutdown continue restarting on a cycle or fail to detect your hard drive boot up


test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

Old machine, trying to rehab for daughter. Turn on, seet Toshiba screen, then see "Disk read error, cntrl+alt+del to reboot"


You have one of two problems. Either your operating system crashed and you will need to get windows reinstalled on the computer or your hard drive crashed.
If the hard drive crashed you will need to replace the hard drive first and then also reinstall windows.
In both cases it is needed to reinstall windows.
This is probably something a computer technician should take care of.

My Toshiba inspiron 6400 will freeze at at first booting to windows and if I shut it down and restart it keeps tripping and will not even boot. need help.


I'm not 100% sure whats going on, but i had a similar problem with my sisters computer the other day. The head on her hard drive crashed, which means that the part that reads the disk literally crashed into the disk surface, digging a groove and rendering it unreadable. It waould continuously reboot after that. The fix? buy a new hard drive. consult a professional and have them look first before you do that; ii don't want you to spend all that money on a new drive and have it still not work.

Won't power up. Looks like the hard drive crashed.


It won't power up? Or is it just that it will not finish "booting" up? If your display screen lights up and you get the initial screen but that is all then this indicates as you suggested a hard disk failure. You will need to call your Toshiba service center as the hard disk on these machine also contains the operating system for the machine so it will have to be loaded onto the new drive. This is why on Toshiba's that when the hard disk fails the machine just "hangs up" on the warm up sequence.

Either the HDD controller is bad or the HDDs you used have bad sectors.HDD regenerator software alot of times will correct the bad sectors and then the OS will install correctly and function smoothly.

I have a laptop Toshiba satellite A30. I have a black screen and some text on it like: PXE-E61 MediaTest Failure PXE-M0F Exiting PXE ROM and it goes continiously, I can't go any further. When I was loaded...


media test failure means that your boot drive has failed ie your hard drive has failed to boot....could be one of a number of reasons
1 hard drive connection could be loose - try taking out the hard drive and reinstalling it
2 the boot sector on the hard drive is corrupt or damaged - try booting off a windows disk and running chkdsk or fixboot command
3 partition table is corrupt - try booting off windows cd and running chkdsk /p from command prompt
4 Hard drive has failed - if machine is still under warranty return for repair if not install new hard drive and reload op system from recovery disks

Toshiba satellite screen blank


This could be that the hard drive has failed, and could also be the reason for the initial crash. Run a drive test in the bios or set up. If the test fails in any area then the hard drive is bad and will need replaced. If it passes, then reformat the drive and reinstall XP.

No operating system loaded-toshiba equium m50 244


Hard drive crash, drive defects in the area where the O/S is, or, corrupted O/S files.

Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic software and run it. It will examine your drive and give you an evaluation.

If it tells you the drive is fine, the either a complete reload, or a repair will get you back up and running. Whether you will be able to recover any of your data, will depend on the drive condition.

Hrad Disk Crash


i dont think theres any way to repair it with that fault except sending it back to toshiba, if you ask them they can retieve the data but they charge you. i have done that before for customers. If its the board on the hard drive you could try and get the same model off ebay cheap and replace it but with the motor you would have to send it back to toshiba All the best John
