Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2266 Notebook
Laptop worked for a week and now it says it has a harddrive but it won't :recongnize it. It call it X: instead of C;
I've performed home PC support for a number of years. Afriend recently contacted me who owns a Toshiba A105-S4014. He told methat the Laptop started asking him for a Password when ever it wasturned on. He said that he had NEVER set any type of password andnothing he tried would resolve it. A little research at http://pcsupport.toshiba.comlisted a Suppot Bulletin that talked about this EXACT problem he washaving. He was not aware of a BIOS flaw that could cause this too occurand was frustrated to learn this was a KNOWN problem by Toshiba. Belowis the link the the support bulletin and what systems are affected thisthis KNOWN PROBLEM (To Toshiba of course). You need to download andinstall the latest BIOS to fix the problem for your model. The programonce you run it will offer you three ways to create a fix given yourcircumstances (Floppy, CD or via OS).
Toshiba says that if you have this problem NOW. Then you can takeyour Laptop to any authorized service provider who will FIX the problemFREE OF CHARGE to you because Toshiba is aware this is their problem!See link below for more detail.
It sucks to have this problem and its one heck of an inconvenience for Toshiba laptop owners!
