Thanks so much. The 'R' did not work but I tried pressing "ESC" key while starting system. Took me to setup screen. I changed the boot sequence and chose CD ROM first. Recognized the Toshiba Recovery disk and installed windows with no problem. I apprecdiate your time and concern. I guess I now need to change the boot sequence back ot HDD first? Thanks.

Hi,

Sounds like you need to run a scan disk,

at c: prompt type " scandsk /f " or chkdsk /f

This will find and fix bad sectors then you should able to format disk

    Oh ok, well try booting from the windows CD, selecting " R " for the repair option, then go to the recover console command prompt. When there, type FIXMMBR press enter and type FIXBOOT and press enter. That will rebuild the master boot record and you should be able to boot to attempt a reinstall

You either have bad sectors on your HDD or the recovery CD is scratched. If your recovery CD is clean and not damaged then a new HDD should resolve your problem.
Hope this helps,

How i format a15-s127 notbook because it's corrupt.


1. Enter the BIOS - the key to press is written on the main screen, most likely F1.
2. In there change the boot order - put the cd first and the hard disk second - follow the instructions on the screen on how to do it.
3.Boot from your recovery disks and during install choose a full format.

Toshiba a15 s127 will not boot up cannot run recovery cannot get to bios


then it is a nice paper weight :-(

I would take it into a local shop to see if they can restore it. You might also try taking the hard drive out and putting into another computer to run the recovery.

How can i full recovery of my pc


You have a bad hard drive...probably. I hope it's a bad hard drive, the other possibility is a mobo and that's a whole lot pricier. Order this drive and swap it out with your current one. I can't be 100% sure, but in every laptop that I've seen with a write sector failure on reload, it results from a bad hd.

get this one.

Turns on but does not load


i would like to give passive explanation for this actually first thing you may do is enter bios and restore defaults and change the boot priority to HDD--CD---FLOPPY then save settings and exit to restart >if the problem persists at system start up keep tapping F8 till you get option like safe mde and other and press enter for safe mode with networking now when desktop comes it gives you recovery pop up click on ok and no follow this Right-click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery Settings > Uncheck "automatically restart" in the System Failure section. now considering the opposite side if system does not comes to this it means HAL.DLL or any other system file is missing so you would be required to reinstall os or use recovery disk..........now reason for this can be virus or trojan that deletes system file and cause crash

Application error when running recovery disk


hi

Did you create any partitions on the HDD?
Obviously the HDD or some partitions on the HDD are corrupt.
In my opinion, you should firstly try to format the whole HDD and delete also whole partitions.
Then insert the recovery CD and try to install the Toshiba image

Hi, I recommend to you to look for the utilitarian one in the network in order that you check the hard disk and determine if this one damaged, in case same this one in functioning, tries to reinstall the operating system with the disc of recovery that comes with your machine.
