The BIOS logos are normally held on the CMOS chip on your mainboard, The fact that your screen shows such an error message may indicate that you CMOS chip has developed a fault which will need the BIOS to be re-flashed. If you cannot get the OS to load past the BIOS screen then you will need to get the BIOS flashed by a Toshiba Authorised Service Partner.

You may also like to try to by=pass the LOGO screnn by pressing the ESC key as soon as you have pressed the power button. This should then show you the BIOS load progress.

pls do rate the solution

thanks.

Looking at the error you provided, the operating system is missing, or the harddrive is faulty or bios is misconfigured.

I would suggest using the windows setup cd or recovery cds to fix the problem


Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,

    I am giving you a step which you should try once and see if it makes any difference.

    Method (Power cycle)

    You
    need to remove the battery, adapter and any other device connected to
    the computer (May be any additional cards or any wires as for Ethernet
    or speakers or external mouse/keyboard).

    Nothing should be connected at all.

    Now
    Press and hold the power button for 25 seconds (It wont show anything).
    This is a step to release any static charges developed, which may
    surely caused the kind of issue you are facing.

    Now connect the battery and the adapter and check whether it works or not.
    Hope it helps

    Sammy

My toshiba a60 has been acting up for the last month, and has finally stopped turning on yesterday. Every time I tried to turn the laptop on, the blue power light flicks on for one sencond, and turns off....


moz-screenshot-1.jpgFirst thing to do is to disable the option that computer automatically restarts when a fatal error/system failure occurs. There is an option inside windows for that, but in this case we can't do that. So what you need to do is to press F8 before the Windows XP logo appears right after the BIOS screen (just like what you do when you want to boot in safe mode). This screen will appear:

How to restore toshiba labtop with no disc


Hello

Well, if you have no Installation disc, or no cd/dvd rom in this specific model, you should have a recovery partition.

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

If this procedure doesn't work, you don't have a recovery partition set up, hence, you will need the installation disc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea
