Kindly check your HDD's IDE if it is properly connected to your motherboard or better yet check your BIOS booting sys. use default booting sys.

No access to a hard drive


If you have just installed a replacement hdd, did you initialise it? Use your windows/Linux disc to initialise the drive.

The display of my laptop is not working when i switch it on the backlight glows but nothing appears on the screen it doesn't even boot.


It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop and the OS you are using? Try a hard restart , remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB, etc., unplug , remove battery, leave battery out, plug in , reboot. Describe what happens, Fan spins? LED's blink? HDD spins up? Sound? Anything on screen? Have you tried a System Restore/Recovery? You can start by removing the HDD and testing it, if you done have a USB to sata/ide adapter take it to a Qualified Computer Tech.

Laptop wont turn on, got green pwr and amb bat but will not fire up


Systems covered: All failing to boot without lighting up display.

Goal of this Solution: Try to determine whether system is (a) booting successfully while failing to light its display (indicating hardware failure in the display), or (b) failing to light the display due to failure to successfully transfer control to ROM BIOS (indicating a motherboard failure).

The fact that the Green power LED, and Amber Battery LED are lit seems to exonerate the laptop power supply (brick) circuitry. Even with a nearly dead battery, a Toshiba Satellite 1135-s1552 should work while plugged into a properly functioning brick.

Here's Toshiba support's (244 page) online PDF version of your laptop manual:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=434997&rpn=PS113U&modelFilter=1135-S1552&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

If the HDD (hard disk) activity indicator LED is active after power-on, then your system has actually got past BIOS and is booting - your LCD monitor inverter circuit or Backlight may have burned out - and to use the system, you'll need to connect an external monitor to the RGB monitor port on the back of the system (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide) to view system activity.
Alternatively, one may attach an analog TV, using the S-Video port on the back of the laptop (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide).

Once an external monitor is working to display the ROM BIOS part of the boot sequence, you may find that the ROM BIOS is good enough to run a few BIOS-based diagnostics. Run them all - something may indicate the source of the boot failure. Ofttimes, enough of the motherboard remains good to provide interaction with the ROM BIOS, but some motherboard failure will subvert a full boot to Windows/Linux. An example of this type of failure would be a failure of the PCMCIA bus controller, which is vital for booting a disk-resident OS, but unaccessed (except by BIOS diags) when the user interacts with BIOS. Another common failure of this type is main memory (RAM) failure.
A working external monitor/TV also provides a chance to backup important laptop data to a flash drive, sky drive, or CD-RW discs.

If no HDD activity is seen after power-up, then either your BIOS is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard), or another motherboard component is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard).

You may want to transplant the HDD into a working PCMCIA-bus system (any laptop) to recover/backup your important data.
If someone recently attempted and failed to update the motherboard's ROM BIOS, then you know why the system is failing to boot and also failing to light the display.
Here's a link to a site with disassembly instructions for Toshiba laptops:
http://www.irisvista.com/

Most dead laptops (even those whose power supplies have been burned out by a nearby lightning strike with the system on 120 VAC power) will still have perfectly usable HDD module(s), and RAM memory cards, so that at the very least, these removable components may be recycled into memory reserves for your next laptop or sold (Ebay.com) to help defray the cost of a new system.

Power failure,command display (no bootable cd)


It seems that your first boot was on cd or dvd, or may be your hard drive did not detect, to check both of them go to BIOS set up by pressing F2 or Delete on your keyboard to enter set up. When you are in set up mode go to Boot menu (if you can not see boot menu go to advance). In a boot menu select HDD as a first boot and Cd or DVD as a second boot, if you can not find your HDD it means that your HDD did not detect, and you need to replace it with a new one.
Hope it gives you a solution

Hdd power problem


Hi!

Check your HDD with HDD monitor utility to see if it's ok. You can try this one:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-disk-health-monitoring-utility.htm
If your HDD has bad SMART or power controller or smth like that - then you definitely need to replace HDD.
Also issue may be caused by your PC power supply or motherboard power controller. If HDD monitor shows that your hard drive is "alive", then try to "hang" your HDD to another power cord from your PC power supply and try to connect to other IDE/SATA port on your motherboard.

Also I'd suggest you to try your HDD on any other PC.

Trying to run recovery disc on computer and cd rom isn't reading


I see this as one of 2 possible failures.
  1. Optical drive failing. Take out the Hard drive, see if the recovery disk, or another bootable disk will boot. If no change, replace the optical drive.
  2. Hard Drive failing. If the system will boot to a CD with the HDD out or if replacing the optical drive has no change, then the HDD is the next logical failure point.

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!


May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.
