If there is no option to change boot sequence outside of the bios there are very few options left. Most laptops allow for changing the boot sequence at start up without going into Bios by pressing F10 or F8 when you see the initial splash screen. If you can't get into Bios because of forgotten password you can search the internet for LCrack which is a free download that will, in most cases, allow you access to the passwords on the computer to include Bios. If this fails look for a reset switch on the bottom. This will be a small hole that you use a toothpick to press the reset button inside. If that is not present you can try removing the battery and the power cord then holding the Power button down for 30 secs. This is a back door reset that works on some systems. If all of these fail to rest the Bios password then you are left with opening the computer, removing the CMOS battery and then putting it all back together. If you just need to boot from the CD and not access the hard drive then you can remove the hard Drive and force the system to boot from another device but you won't be able to install the hard drive after the computer boots. It won't recognize it and will most likely damage the drive if you try.

Toshiba satellite 5105,only gets a sfar as "toshiba" screen with red lettering.Cant get to bios, hitting esc. worked once and said media failure. What can I do to fix it,or get it to at least do...


First, make sure the ESC key is the proper key to get to the BIOS. You should see a prompt right after you get the Toshiba splash screen to hit a function key to change settings.
I'm thinking because you got a media failure error, your hard drive may be bad and the boot order says to boot to the HD.

Toshiba satellite 5105-s607 insert system disk error. Every time put o.s disk in keeps saying same message.


Log into the bios and change the boot order to boot from the CD - it will then boot up your CD system Disk first
As the PC boots - you should see a message to get into bios/setup usually F10, F2 or del key varies buy manufacturer
then look for the bios section for boot order and make sure the CD/DVD drive is set to before the harddrive

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.

How to entrer in setup of toshiba 5105 satellite?


There is no BIOS setup on that (or most for matter) Toshiba laptop. If you need to tell it what drive to boot from hit the F12 key when you see the Toshiba Logo then use the left and right arrow keys to pick what device you want.
