Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook
Thank you for your very prompt response. i do appreciate any help.
initially, the machine would begin to boot up, go to the windows xp screen, run for a few seconds then shut down. it would then start again on it's own and run through the same process. even with the lid shut it would continue this unless i shut the machine off manually.
the error message when i tried to run the recovery disk did refer to some sort of a sector problem on the hard drive and said something along the lines of 'if problem persists contact the manufacturer'.
i have another a45 which i am using right now; if i try to trade this drive into the non-working machine will this help isolate the issue? or will this put the usable drive at risk?
No if you change harddrives the drive wont boot as all the drivers are different and windows looks for hardware already installed
