This will occur if the Windows files are Corrupted or Fragmented, the solution is to backup by logging in to Safe Mode. Please restart the computer and try pressing F8 Key to select Safe Mode. If the Safe Mode is working fine then please backup the data and Format the computer using the Window XP or the Operating System Disc which you have. If the Safe Mode is not working then use any Linux CD like Ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com) it's free! Then boot the CD to backup the data for any external Hard Drive or Pen Drive and format the Notebook using the appropriate Operating System Disc like Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

you should have a recovery partition on the drive itself when you turn on the computer immediatly hit f10 or f11 i cant remember if that doesnt boot into recovery. then you must shut down. hold the 0 (NUMBER) key then turn it on. keep holding it until it boots into the recovery partition. let me know if that helped. this model DOES have a recovery partion

I wiped clean my toshiba satellite pro p300 and tried to load operating system ,screen say's press enter to continue loading, when i press enter screen shows cannot find hard drive etc etc can anyone...


If you insert your Vista or Win7 disc into the DVD drive and boot form that, make sure that the BIOS is set to recognise the hard disc. The OS disc will do the rest. If it cannot find the hard disc, maybe the hard disc is faulty.
When you are successful, go to toshiba.com and download the latest drivers and firmware for the BIOS.
Hope that helps.

Not able to recover windows on toshiba l300


You need to get disk for Vista from anyone and then use your windows product key mentioned on the sticker on back of your Toshiba Laptop to install Vista again on your computer. But as you had already formatted it so all data is lost now.

Remove Hard Drive, connect it to a USB to Hard Drive "Dongle" & recover your files that way. When you connect your drive & dongle it will "Show Up" in My Computer as a "Drive" as such you can Copy, Cut & Paste between windows..Of course you would have to use a friends PC to do it as yours now is inoperative. When you have all what you want. Reformat the drive and put it back into your laptop and reinstall windows and apps.

Recovery Problem


  1. Check you are really using the right CDs
  2. Using another computer with a CD Writer and a blank CD, download this file:
toshdmi10.exe

Run the program, it will explain how to make a boot CD which you will use to start your computer and fix the problem that makes it say Wrong Machine.
Once this is done you can use the recovery cd's again.
