20 Most Recent Toshiba Satellite 4300 Notebook Questions & Answers

You need to post more information on your laptop. What operating system is on it? Try tapping the F8 key when the computer is booting up to get it into safe mode and if you can get to safe mode then you can go to the system utilities and into the restore/backup menu of system tools and then restore the computer back to the last known good working point. You would then need to re-install the driver disk for the wireless and start again from there. Just pressing any old key in hopes of finding a solution is always a bad idea. So, post some more information about the operating system installed please. Dennis

Make sure drive is seen in BIOS, if not, re-seat the drive. If still not seen in BIOS reset defaults and check again. If still not seen, replace the drive.

If the drive is seen in BIOS, then use the following to resolve.

Hi, yes. Download a program called ERD Commander 2008 or 2005 and make a bootable CD. I think you will download an ISO so you need Nero to burn it on a disk. Then boot from it (on the toshiba 4300) and once you are using the ERD commander, look for system restore, and it's the same as the Windows system restore. Choose a day before you downloaded the Internet Explorer and see if it works. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free response today. Thank you :D

In your device manager you should be able to see what sound card your laptop has, then by Google search find the driver.

The screen is easy to replace, I suggest you do it yourself. Bellow are a couple of links that will help. Looks like the screen will run approx $150. There is one listed on Ebay now that is up for bid, you may be able to get this one cheaper. If you decide to take it to a shop to have it replaced you can add another $50 minimum.

Was it replaced with the same model graphics card? It sounds like a corrupt driver install. Try uninstalling and re-installing the graphics drivers. Sometimes it is necessary to run a utility like RegCure to clean up the registry after the old driver uninstall.

Assuming this is not hibernating and your harddrive is not set to shutdown after a certain idle time, it could be this is an overheating problem. Check that the extraction vents are'nt blocked and that the fan area is well ventillated. If necassary gently hoover around all ventillation slats. Some laptops have the ability for the user to turn off the fan for certain usage, just check in your management settings that it's turned on, unless you know it is on' and it cuts in or stays on.

Just restore your system from a backup taken before the error code started.

If you have no backup then you need to format your hard disk and do a complete reinstall of all your software.

If you know the DVD and the DVD drive is in proper working order, it could mean that the software you are running just may have some problems. Try downloading a copy of VLC (VideoLan Client) this application is free and open source (and no it's not something I created and am just trying to get people to use...it's just something that works great, and completely free) VLC can play almost any video file or DVD that it encounters. If VLC can't play it, I would think it's likely there may be something with your disk or your DVD drive.
