Put in the restore CD and hold down C while booting, this will allow you to boot from thh CD and select how you want to restore the computer. Alternatively, you can attempt to boot in safe mode with command prompt, and type "chkdsk /r" without the quotes, and press enter., post your results.

Hello, My toshiba satelite a305 laptop wont boot up! It goes on, everything seems to be running but it doesnt go past the initial screen that says "toshiba- press f2 press f12" blah blah blah...Can...


What OS is it running. If this was my laptop i would be using ERD comander or microsoft diagnostics and recovery toolset (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/enterprise/products/mdop/dart.aspx). This will allow you to boot into a recovery tool set and from there you can restore your laptop and see if this gets it booting up again. if it dose then have a look at thing you where doing before you had this problem. hope this will help you out

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

My toshiba s\atelite a135-s4527 wont turn on and


Could be the "resume" battery that has died - its an internal battery shrink wrapped in bright green plastic on tosh's normally - you might be able to get to it by unplugging stuff, battery, cd rom etc etc....unplug it and plug it back in again, if it comes alive again order another. I went on a toshiba laptop maintenance course years ago with a company that i worked for and that error that youre seeing was the fix....see if that works...

Blinking white dash during boot.


Something has messed with your MBR, master boot record, which is a small sector at the beginning of your first hard drive which tells the bios which partition to boot. You'll have to use your xp or vista's installation disc to repair the system.( Choose; repair this installation of windows when prompted )
While you are in the bios check under the boot section the order of your boot devices. If you have more than 1 HD check that the one containing your OS is first.

Toshiba Satelite M100 PC notebook wont start up windows XP


This sounds like a memory problem. Download and run memtest 86, it is a small iso file that you create a bootable cd from. Run this for at least one pass.

If the memory passes boot from your xp disk and choose R to get into the repair console. Once there type the following commands

fixboot
fixmbr

then try the install again. Hope this helps
