if you are using xp

Restart your computer during the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.

Hello
First thing you do is to see what hard disc installed in your laptop. You can check that by checking it in your bios system. To check in your bios system first turn off your computer then press delete while your laptop is booting up. Then you will see if there is a hard disk detected in your lap top if there is a detected hard drive this means you have a problem in your windows installed in your lap top.
There is also a reason why those message appear if the first boot of your laptop is the CD/DVD ROM. Check you CD/DVD ROM if there a CD inside this may the first on to read while the laptop booting up. Remove the cd inside your CD/DVD ROM. Then restart your laptop. Check your hard disk connector it may have some loose contact thats why your laptop did not recognize the hard disc.
Hope this can help keep on touch with fixya. Hope to hear some testimonial from you. . .

It seemed that the laptop is booting to the network to correct this
1. Go to the BIOS Check if the hard drive is detected by the computer (Hard drives are usually shown as alpha numeric) 2. If the hard drive is detected make sure that the hard drive is the first boot device 3. Save all changes and restart the computer 4. If the hard drive is still not detected you have to take out the hard drive and put it back in (reseat the hard drive) 5. Go to the BIOS again check if the hard drive is detected if not replace the hard drive

Hope this helps

My Toshiba Satellite Pro, when I turn my laptop the screen comes on with Password= I forgot my password, how do I reset it?


The first question is - did you create a password recovery disk? If not you will have to re-install the operating system.
Your BIOS default will be set to start up from teh DVD drvie - insert the recovery disk and it will re-install the operating system.

Black screen


Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.

Toshiba 8000 system disc message


Hi Larry,

This happens when either the system disk is corrupt or faulty, or, when another disk with higher priority but no operating system is in the computer.

Typically removable disks like CD's, DVD's, Floppy disks, Memory Cards and USB flash drives can all take higher priority than your windows drive as any can be used to load up diagnostic software when it is damaged.

So, Remove all disks, USB devices(including printers), CD's or DVD's et al and try again. If this still happens with everything removed/disconnected, then your problem is with the Windows install or the harddrives physical components. If it works try reattaching/inserting the disks and devices one at a time then restarting and you will figure out which one is causing the problem.

If it didn't work you will need to get to a hardware shop and have them test the hard drive to see if it's faulty. If not contact Toshiba and order a set of recovery disks, when they arive insert disk one then turn the machine on and an onscreen wizard will walk you through re-installing. If they determine there's a hardware issue with the drive, either buy/warranty a new drive then order the disks from Toshiba and follow the above instructions.

Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

Sounds like a bad screen. If you hook up your computer to an external monitor and it's okay there, then that should confirm it.
