Carefull! The 1800 had a notoriously lousy MB/bios problem. While it still works, get yourself to Toshiba support and get the LATEST bios for the right version of your board, and get it IN ASAP...
Otherwise you might well end up with a brick..

That is a memory error. Remove and reseat the memory in your computer. If the error persists and you have more than 1 stick, try each stick separately to find the faulty unit. If you only have one stick, then the memory will need to be replaced.

I'm not clear on your description, so here goes:

If it showed the Toshiba start screen, then asked for a password, then your hard drive is password protected.

If it showed the Toshiba screen, then asked for password, and you entered it, and then it goes "insert disk", then your hard drive is passworded and wiped.

If the first thing it does is ask for a password, then the password is in the BIOS.

Toshiba Laptop - Won't Read Any Disks


the drivers GOT LOST, bring it to the geek squad so they can try and get your drivers back on there, also buy an external hard drive and backup all of your priceless data in case you need to do a restore in which you need the recovery disks for your pc, most new pc dont come with them so if you need them order them from the mfg.

Won't boot.


Hello Lunartiger, i have one suggestion. My 4 year old toshiba satellite has had the same problem (almost.....). It would not boot or format. the hard drive's running sound was weird. It would do tic-tic-tic... instead of the normal chirrrrrrr.... I thought the hard drive was broken . So i went to a computer shop and replaced its original toshiba hard drive with a cheap refurbished Fujitsu hard drive. It's been working well(maybe faster) since then. If your hard drive sounds different then before, consider buying a new one. search the web for your laptop's motherboard to see where the CMOS bettery is. I used irisvista.com for my laptop but they might not have hp laptops there
