Hate to say it.. but yes your service center is correct. The motherboard or the back plane on the motherboard is not able to handle the windows load, just sits there stating it is installing .... but there is no progress on the screen.
I note, you stated that you have formatted the HDD, if you did not, the data on the disk could be prone to corruption.
To verify and/or prove a point ... I'll try another Operating System (OS) ... The freeware linux versions. Fedora Core or Ubuntu. You can download a "live CD" which starts the OS and if it starts, then it may not necessarily be a motherboard issue. From the liveCD you can then install onto your computer and install free versions of word, excel, etc .. I'd suggest OpenOffice.
Either this should assist in verifying you have a hardware related issue or not for loading any operating systems.
hope this helped ....

How to upgrade a toshiba L305 to a 500gb hard without hardware failure error


I'm a bit confused? You are trying to install a HDD with Windows 7 on it from another computer in a Toshiba L305 laptop? If that's correct, it will not work, first, you must format the 500GB SATA HDD, then load the Windows 7 OS to get a clean install. Clarify the question if I am incorrect.

Could you give me instruction on how to install win 7 in laptop,


  • Obtain a windows 7 dvd and serial, this is easiest if you actually buy it.
  • Backup any and all information you want to keep on the laptop
  • Put the DVD into the laptop and restart your computer.
  • If prompted select boot from CD.
  • If your previous operating system loads, restart the computer, go into the bios settings and change the boot order to CD then HDD
  • Restart again, this time it should boot from CD.
  • Reformat the entirety of the HDD space into NTFS and select the reformatted space as the place to install windows 7, if offered, choose 64bit (x64).
  • Let it do its job, this may take quite some time.
  • Voila you have a new OS

It sounds like the HDD controller may be bad.When you thought it was the OS having a problem it sounds like the controller was going out.Unless the HDD you were connecting to it was bad.

Won't fully boot. Get windows screen, then it stalls gray


reformated twice? have you already ran diagnostics on the hdd? check first the hdd thru diagnostics it might the hdd causing the problem. if no errors found in hdd make sure it was reformated as clean install. your hdd might have partition and just reinstalled OS on he same partition without deleting partitions. Try deleting partitions then create new partitions then reinstall OS.
