If the magnia was equipped with a CD-Rom, a video card, keyboard/mouse ports or even a serial port, the advice to use "Hiren's BootCD" would be useful. However the advice is imcomplete at best. First, some advice. If the magnia is being used as a router (as opposed to a file sserver) I would advise against using the disk image from toshiba. It is showing it's age and is not secure. As a file server, it's fine. There are several alternative images. Yahoo's SG20 group is a good place to start. Next, you will need a means to transfer your disc image to the magnia. Most people use a USB<-->2.5" IDE adaptor and transfer the image using a laptop (which has the required video card, keyboard, and cd-rom). I've never re-imaged using the toshiba CD. So I don't know if the CD contains all the necessary software, or if you will need a BootCD (such as Hiren's). Good luck

Toshiba nb300 windows starter won't boot. PXE-E61 media test failure. check cable.


If your computer is working fine, then disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option. It can't find a DHCP server, that's why the media test failure is displayed. It's usually used to load an OS image from network.


For the most part not a real problem. More of a warning. Some corporate models use PXE to mass image.
If there is a problem (won't boot) then it lost communications to hard drive, and you need to check BIOS for hard drive.

Display PXE-E61: Media Failure, Check Cable PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot Agent Will not boot to windows. I boot from the hard drive and still get an error


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Satelitte toshiba u405-s2824 loaded new bios now wont load windows keeps restarting


Terrible sequence. You should load windows on the old bios the flash the new bios.

Did the windows installation complete? What keeps restarting the windows installation or the boot process?

If the boot process keeps restarting try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

How to fix error loading operating system on toshiba satelite m115 laptop


Go into the BIOS and check if the BIOS detects the hard disk. If not then most likely the hard disk has failed and the hard disk needs to be replaced then Windows needs to be installed on the new hard drive plus the Toshiba M115 device drivers and your programs/software.

Laptop wont turn on, got green pwr and amb bat but will not fire up


Systems covered: All failing to boot without lighting up display.

Goal of this Solution: Try to determine whether system is (a) booting successfully while failing to light its display (indicating hardware failure in the display), or (b) failing to light the display due to failure to successfully transfer control to ROM BIOS (indicating a motherboard failure).

The fact that the Green power LED, and Amber Battery LED are lit seems to exonerate the laptop power supply (brick) circuitry. Even with a nearly dead battery, a Toshiba Satellite 1135-s1552 should work while plugged into a properly functioning brick.

Here's Toshiba support's (244 page) online PDF version of your laptop manual:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=434997&rpn=PS113U&modelFilter=1135-S1552&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

If the HDD (hard disk) activity indicator LED is active after power-on, then your system has actually got past BIOS and is booting - your LCD monitor inverter circuit or Backlight may have burned out - and to use the system, you'll need to connect an external monitor to the RGB monitor port on the back of the system (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide) to view system activity.
Alternatively, one may attach an analog TV, using the S-Video port on the back of the laptop (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide).

Once an external monitor is working to display the ROM BIOS part of the boot sequence, you may find that the ROM BIOS is good enough to run a few BIOS-based diagnostics. Run them all - something may indicate the source of the boot failure. Ofttimes, enough of the motherboard remains good to provide interaction with the ROM BIOS, but some motherboard failure will subvert a full boot to Windows/Linux. An example of this type of failure would be a failure of the PCMCIA bus controller, which is vital for booting a disk-resident OS, but unaccessed (except by BIOS diags) when the user interacts with BIOS. Another common failure of this type is main memory (RAM) failure.
A working external monitor/TV also provides a chance to backup important laptop data to a flash drive, sky drive, or CD-RW discs.

If no HDD activity is seen after power-up, then either your BIOS is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard), or another motherboard component is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard).

You may want to transplant the HDD into a working PCMCIA-bus system (any laptop) to recover/backup your important data.
If someone recently attempted and failed to update the motherboard's ROM BIOS, then you know why the system is failing to boot and also failing to light the display.
Here's a link to a site with disassembly instructions for Toshiba laptops:
http://www.irisvista.com/

Most dead laptops (even those whose power supplies have been burned out by a nearby lightning strike with the system on 120 VAC power) will still have perfectly usable HDD module(s), and RAM memory cards, so that at the very least, these removable components may be recycled into memory reserves for your next laptop or sold (Ebay.com) to help defray the cost of a new system.

My tosshiba satellite A665-55186 wont go in to windows boot, what can i do??


Just like other computers, your Toshiba laptop may start failing to boot the operating system completely, or may fail to boot up at all. Boot problems are caused by virus infections and issues related to hardware and software. With the proper troubleshooting techniques, boot problems can be remedied to get the laptop into good working condition.

1. Perform initial hardware checks. Ensure that the laptop has enough battery life to boot up. Charge the laptop using its AC adapter and then try to boot the laptop again. If nothing happens, plug the AC adapter into another power outlet. If this does not help, check to see if external drives (flash drive, external hard drive, etc.) are connected into one of your USB ports. Unplug it from the laptop and press the laptop's power button. If the laptop powers on but fails to load the operating system, proceed to the next step.

2. Ensure that the hard disk is not disabled in the boot sequence in your BIOS. Otherwise, the laptop will fail to fully boot the operating system. Reboot the computer and press a key that will lead you to the BIOS page. Set your hard disk as your "first boot priority," or first in the "boot sequence." Note that the steps on loading the BIOS as well as navigating throughout the BIOS pages will depend on what brand of BIOS is installed in your laptop.

3. Choose boot to the "Last known good configuration" if you get an error page before the operating system boots up. If after choosing this option the computer reboots again, choose "Start Windows Normally," if this is in the list of options.

4. Consider repairing or reinstalling the operating system if the computer still fails to boot after the steps above. Repairing the operating system will retain your current data and settings. Reinstalling the operating system means reformatting or deleting all data in your computer and installing a fresh copy of the operating system.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards from fixya

My Toshiba M55-S135 laptop has a PXE-E61 Error upon starting. I did make sure the Boot is set to HDD first and LAN LAST! Still have this issue. It won't even run the Toshiba recover cd. Please help me....


Is your BIOS actually recognising your hard disk drive.
It sounds to me very much like it isn't seeing your hard disk as a physical drive and therefore as the "last option" it is trying to load a PXE image from a network server via your LAN connection.

Can you not remove LAN from your boot options completely and see then if you get message similar to

"Operating System Not Found"

My advice would be first to see if you can boot from a CD if you can boot from a CD e.g. Windows Setup CD or Knoppix then my best advice would be to test with a new hard disk drive and try installing your operating system onto a new hard drive.
