Check the BIOS, the boot start up configuration to see if there is an option to boot up with a USB device. If not then it is not possible with your laptop because there is no boot USB driver.

You can format your hard disk by booting up with Windows CD installation and follow the steps to delete the partition, then creat a new partition, then format the partition.
OR
Download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD, then insert it into the laptop and get the laptop to boot up on the Hiren's CD.
One of the options on Hiren is DOS utilities - it contains a format program.
This is a very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

Toshiba libretto 50 ct wont boot


I haven't encountered multiple beeps on shutdown - but multiple beeps on startup is usually an indication of a memory issue. Frequently can be resolved by simply taking memory modules out and re-inserting them.

If problem continues, may need to replace memory chip. If more than one chip, put one in at a time and startup to see which chip is causing the problem.

Not sure, based on your description of the problem, if this is the issue - but certainly worth a try.

Best of Luck!

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio model SR150FN and I want to install a new TOSHIBA 500GB HD model MK5076GSX, the problem is that the BIOS can't see it, I put the HD in an external usb case, created a 500 GB...


> put HD into an external USB case
> the BIOS cannot see it

Correct. The BIOS does not see "external" USB devices.

However, see if you can "enable boot from USB devices",
and change the "boot order" to include USB devices.

You may need to remove the old disk-drive, and install the new disk-drive in its place.
Then, put the old disk-drive into the external USB case.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive, and then connect the external USB case,
and copy all the files from the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive.

I have Intel 845 series motherboard & I want to format my PC but when I put xp cd inside & restarts & press enter the boot doesn't start now how could i format ?


You have to change the BIOS settings to boot from your CD drive. It must have been set to boot from harddisk.
To do this you have to change the primary boot device from Harddisk to CD drive. When you restart your computer press DEL or F12 or TAB or F1(any one...Depends on your BIOS see manual or try all) to bring bios. In bios go to boot device priority and set the CD drive to boot first.
Restart your computer, it will boot from CD drive and XP setup will start.

Hope this will help...cheers:)

I just added Toshiba 1TB USB drive to my Sony RZ44G desktop. Sometimes when powering off and back on, the reboot hangs at the 'SONY' screen and gets no further. If I disconnect the Toshiba drive, power off...


Check your bios/cmos settings (press DEL button while booting), and make sure no USB device is set to boot frome.
(some bios's recognise large USB's as harddisk's drives, and when booting it check's the drive boot sector, and hang, since no boot sector is located in it)

gd luck.

I can't use this as a bootable device with Windows XP.


Dear,
Not every PC is capable of booting from a USB flash drive. For the most part, computers manufactured within the last two years are generally able to boot from a flash drive. Older systems may require a BIOS update, or might not be able to boot from a flash drive at all.
Drive must be formatted with FAT file system.
For your systen you need an internal Hard drive.

I cant reformat my Toshiba libretto L3. I tried everything


You cant boot from cd. Try changing the boot order in the BIOS and allow the CD to have ownership over the Harddisk Drive. This way the computer is forced to boot from the CD.

Booting Notebook using external devices.


This should do it for you.

On the Phoenix BIOS:
Go to "Advanced BIOS Features".
Go to the "1st Boot device" and set it to "USB-ZIP".
(Phoenix BIOS, Revision 6. you need to go to the Boot Order screen and select "Harddisk" and hit enter, giving you a list of IDE hard drives this BIOS prefers to call a USB device an IDE harddrive)
