Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.

3 Possible solutions.
1. Remove any media and USB attached items.

2. Reseat the hard drive if possible.


3. You need to go into BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key (F1 or F2). Make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Note - The hard drive must to be listed in BIOS, or there is no going forward.

Turn the computer off completely, and then turn it back on.
Press and hold the "Esc" key on the keyboard immediately after turning the computer on. After a moment, the computer will prompt you to press the "F1" key to enter the motherboard BIOS configuration utility.
Press the "F1" key when you see the prompt. The BIOS configuration utility will load.

My Toshiba Tecra M5 won't boot. The power light flashes on and off, the fan starts but nothing is on the screen. How can I get it to boot?


Well, it sounds like you have a hardware problem. Start by removing the Ram and hard Drive from the machine and insert a boot disk. If your not getting the Tecra Splash screen when you press the power button, the screen that appears before the windows boot screen, you may have a bad Monitor or Burned background lamp or faulty BIOS install or upgrade. Any of which will give you this problem.

I'm not clear on your description, so here goes:

If it showed the Toshiba start screen, then asked for a password, then your hard drive is password protected.

If it showed the Toshiba screen, then asked for password, and you entered it, and then it goes "insert disk", then your hard drive is passworded and wiped.

If the first thing it does is ask for a password, then the password is in the BIOS.
