Re: asus a6 series notebook problem
After pressing the power button to boot up your unit, immediately tap (just keep on tapping it) the F2 to go in to bios and set your boot priority.
Try tapping F12 to load boot menu and bootit from the disc but I'm not sure if it is the same as Toshiba laptops.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The error is generic and It is not identifiable ..but usually these kinda errors are system ones..and to get rid of them you should reinstall the operation system or use the recovery partition or disk to do that ..If you have a recovery tool ..just boot from it ..and get the laptop to the factory condition ...or ...use a boot-able disk with the operation system you use...select the boot menu by pressing F12 on start (or the key written on the screen on start ..and suggested to get to the boot menu ) and boot from the disk to install the OS .. Be sure to have all drivers saved on a memory device ....cause after reinstalling the drivers will be missing . if you can not get into the boot menu ..try to see if it is set to boot from cd first ..by restarting with the disk inside..and if it asks for pressing any key to boot from cd it means it is .if it isn't ..go to BIOS settings by pressing F2 on start ...select advanced settings ..and in there locate the boot sequence ..and select to boot from disk first ..(first boot device -cd/dvd ) and save settings with F10 .. If you can not manage to make a boot-able disk ..let me know and I will guide you trough the procedure step by step ..but ..if you have the possibility ..I suggest to use a genuine OS ..so ..buy or borrow one if you do not have it ...and only as a last solution make a home made one . Good luck !
Just reinstall the OS again. When you don't need to save any data, just turn on your laptop and boot into the bios.
When you don't know how to get there look at the scrren during boot up and it will tell you which button you have to press. Can be F2, DEL or even another button. When you are in the Bios, just look around until you find boot priorities and change your boot priority to CD/DVD first followed by the HDD, save and exit. Insert your OS and when it ask you to boot from CCD/DVD hit any key on your keyboard and follow the installation instructions
