Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"


This is maybe telling your HD is faulty.
First thing is power down, remove HD as per instructions (user or service manual), and replace HD and see if it boots. If does, immediately make a full back-up the HD.
If it does not, there are several options, even excluding Toshiba's exclusive ones. If you had, or made subsequently, recovery CDs/DVDs use them. You will lose any data on your HD. Toshiba support might be able to send you some for a price or maybe even for free. You might even even be able to access recovery procedures/software through the BIOS. Boot into the BIOS by tapping frequently on certain keys during start up F1, F2 F8, F10 F12 esc I don't know is right for the NB520. The manual will say. Toshiba support might be able to help with the whole situation actually. The correct key might appear on the logo screen on power-up. Also on this screen which will only be on be on view for a second, there may be information on which key to press to initiate the recovery process. Once in the BIOS there might be an option for recovery.

From the BIOS, you might also change the order of the devices in which the computer tries to boot from if necessary. You might try a windows or even DOS bootable CD to enable you to look at your system, or having made a Linux CD or USB flash drive, use that to further investigate your system and copy some of you data to another device.

If your HD is completely U/S you will have to buy a new one, use whatever recovery media (CDs) which came with or were made from, your original HD and contact Toshiba Support. You will also learn the importance of back-ups. Or you could buy another laptop.

I cannot boot from the cd rom to do a fresh install of windows xp onto the laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1805-S274 PC Notebook)


Most computers need to have the boot order reset in the Bios to enable booting from cd. The following should be the correct way to access the Bios setup for this model.

Starting with the system powered off (not in sleep/suspend or hibernate mode)-Start with the system powered off. Press the power button and then immediately press and hold the Esc key while the system runs the POST (Power On Self Test). When the POST finishes, a prompt will appear telling you to press the F1 key to enter BIOS Setup. At that time, press the F1 key to access the BIOS Setup program.

Once in the Bios setup, change the boot order to boot first from cd, then save changes and exit. You should then be able to run the cd install.

500 GB Seagate freeagent classic - windows 7 won't start when power cord is connected. Okay to connect after boot up and HD works find. Is there a workaround that will allow the external HD to remain in...


Most likely the problem is that your computer is trying to boot from your external hard drive and that why windows 7 wont start up but it is a very easy fix. with the freeagent attached start up your computer system and when the first BIOS screen is displayed press either the F8 key or the ESC key to enter BIOS setup it should say on the screen which button you need to press. Once you press the correct button the BIOS set up screen will load there should be tabs at the top and select the boot tab, under the boot tab there will be a list of devices in the order that the computer will try and boot off of them all u need to do is move your freeagent to the bottom of the list and every thing will work perfect.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
Norse

Hello,

First you need to make sure that the CD drive is selected as the first boot device.

You can set that by going into BIOS setup by pressing Del/F2 during system startup OR during startup press F12 and select CD drive from the boot device selection menu.

Press Enter.

See if the system is able to start from the disc.


Thanks

Hi, My Name is Henry. I am one of the technicians here.

You need to get the right hard drive for the laptop if you ascertain that is where the problem is.

Also check the book sequence and make sure the 'boot from hard drive' is listed first.

Please do not forget to rate my solutions to you.

Enter BIOS, at start up press Delete key every couple of seconds. PC vary, some require pressing the F1 key or F2 and others reqire F10. Once in the BIOS you'll need change your boot order. Again PC's BIOS's vary. Usually Floppy is first, CDROM second and Hd 3'rd. Save Bios and restart. If you boot media is a floppy disk your PC will go there 1'st, than to the CDROM. If boot media still is not seen. Check connectors to the floppy and or CD make sure cables and power connectors are tight.
