Hi,

Have you checked the maximum capacity and harddrive specification that your laptop could handle? You might be using a harddrive specs that exceeded the maximum. However, try to check if it is properly seated first before trying to use lower specs of harddrive.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba qosmio f45 av411 laptop wont boot from windows xp disc trying to reformat the hard drive.


Providing the computer posts (shows an image when powered up), Enter the CMOS/BIOS by tapping the DELETE (DEL) key. Therein, make sure the optical drive (CD/DVD Drive) is set to boot before the hard drive (HDD). Look for something like boot order, etc.

I need to reset the bios on my toshiba qosmio f45-av412 please help1


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Hi There. I am looking for an Internal Hard Drive to suit a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160Gb ST9160821AS. Where can I get one or is there another Hard Drive that would be OK to use...


I suggest you check the specification of your Dell laptop to see the maximum size hard drive it can support. The maximum size hard disk you can install in the laptop depends upon the BIOS.
Any major brand of 2 1/2" hard drive will work with the Dell.

Have a Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV411 and downloaded windows 7 last night. worked fine then I put comp in to sleep mode when I tried to turn on today looks like it is booting up and then goes to a black screen...


Try to boot up the computer using safe mode first. Keep on tapping the F8 key the moment you turn on the computer. If your computer wont boot to safe mode then you need to re-install windows 7.

Crashed error 03-FFFF-OOOO


if that error occurs while attempting the recovery, typically it indicates a read write error on the hard drive. replace the hard drive and see if the recovery finishes.
