Try cleaning your CD/DVD drive lens with a cleaning kit. If that does not resolve it, then try the OS disc in another computer to see if it gets recognized. If it does not, the disc is bad.

Bought this used and can't get past the black screen that says to insert disc


Press F2 as it starts to boot and make sure the BIOS menu is set up to boot in the order 1-Hard drive. 1-Floppy, (eventhough it hasn't one). 3-DVD ROM, 4- Network.
It should then look for the hard drive but if the hard drive is empty or has been formatted, you will need to put an OS on it to use it.
Hope that helps.

Hi, you will have to change the boot sequenc.when you turn on watch the screen and you will see very quickly to press F2 or a different key to go into the bios. I think it is on the first screen to change the sequence - Boot from cdrom then hard drive.
Then insert your dvd and install, if you need more help, please ask.

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 boots over and over and over non stop


It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

ERASE AND REINSTALL ALL SOFTWARE


First if it have a restore disk or it is design to restore to factory setting this is the most desirable method.

Second is installing the software from a scratch. But copy all drivers of it. Or do you have in hand the full driver cd of your unit. Your operating system and other installed software that are important to you. Backup files that is important to you.

You gonna need some bootable cd or disk.

Changing BIOS priority on toshiba satelite 5005-s504


as i recall, ntloader is software for the OS load, after hardware boot, so you already passed up your chance to enter bios, which you realize. i used to have a toshiba laptop, was it the delete key or F2 to enter BIOS? try delete, and make sure youre pressing it from restart like once a second as it's booting to make sure you hit it in the windows of time it's looking for key presses before it's time to load the operating system. you'll be fine. it's just unnerving to be locked out like that...

When the computer starts to boot up does it ask you to boot to CD/DVD?
1. If so put the xp disc in the drive and turn on the power when it asks you to boot to CD/DVD press any key. This will start the installation process.
2. If it does not ask you to boot to CD/DVD you will have to go into Bios and change the boot priority to boot to disk drive first. save the settings and do the first step over again

Unable to get into BIOS SETUP


hi there,

On most systems, the key or key combination to press to enter the BIOS program is displayed on the screen when the system boots up, at the time when the BIOS is ready to enter Setup.

take a look at some default keys:-
  • {Delete} (modern Award and AMI BIOSes)
  • {F2} (modern Phoenix BIOSes)
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Esc}
  • {Alt}+{Esc}
  • {Ctrl}+{Alt}+{S}
  • {Insert}
  • {F1}

Reformatting the Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504


you did not specify what operating system you are currently using, anyhow, if you are using winxp, configure the bios setting set the cd rom as your 1st boot device and insert the winxp cd to the cd rom then save and exit the. computer will automatically reboot after exit. a message will appear "press any key to boot from cd" you may press a key. you follow correctly instructions or message from the screen then you will succeed. hoping that this will help you. if you have some queries you may send me thru my e-mail.

Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504; boot from USB? Reformat HD w/o CD-ROM?


First these laptops are what is called "Legacy Free", meaning there is no BIOS, at all, ever, for all time, not gonna be there.

Second, the Floppy option is referring to any supported USB Floppy drive. If you have one great, if not this will be more difficult.

NOTE**** - If at any point you do not know what I'm referring to, please do not attempt this, you will likely render your HDD useless.


If you have the Floppy on USB, then you will need the XP setup on Floppy Disk and there are alot of disks, and from my own experience so far, No, a USB flash drive will not work, I even tried an emulator which formatted it as a floppy disk.

If you do not have a floppy, then you will need to remove the harddrive and connect it via an external USB drive cage to another pc, create two partitions, one for your OEM OS disc, the other for the installation. Obviously your OEM OS Disc is not all that large, only partition what it needs, and make sure you make it a bootable partition. For XP you will also need the SATA drivers for the hard drive as XP does not have them included in the setup disc. If you do not have these, you will need to find them or just stop here, because you can go no further.

This is one of the biggest drawbacks of a "Legacy Free" system, you cannot change the SATA operation in BIOS like most other pc's. The system configuration is done through a windows utility from Toshiba.
