Re: Toshiba PX1524E-1HKO, flashing blue/red light
If you're seeing a combined blue and red light on your Toshiba PX1524E-1HKO laptop's hard drive, it means that there is a problem with the drive and it isn't being recognized by the computer. This could be due to a number of issues, such as a loose connection, damaged data cables, or a failed hard drive.
If you're hearing no sound coming from your hard drive, it's a pretty good indication that it isn't spinning. This could be due to a number of issues, such as a failed motor or a damaged data cable.
If you're not sure what the problem is, the best course of action is to take the laptop to a qualified technician or computer repair shop to have them take a look at it. They'll be able to diagnose the problem and let you know what needs to be done to fix it.
I hope this helps!

You will have to take the drive off, put it on an external hdd enclosure with a usb connection, connect it to a working computer, scan it for viruses and spyware, copy all of your data to another device (i.e. hdd, flashdisk, cd, etc). Then, reinstall the hd back on to the original computer and turn it on. If it works it you've solved your problem. If it doesn't then reformat your hdd, reinstall your operating system, programs, and data.
Time consuming? yes but it works.
it sounds as that you have flashed the usb port. take the harddrive to someone with a computer and plug it in theirs. if it still does not work remove from case and plug the harddrive straight in to yours.
Toshiba could only replace my HD after destroying the data on it, So I just bought a separate empty HD casing instead and opened the Toshiba casing and took out the Western Digital Harddisk. The harddisk was perfectly working, It seems that the Toshiba controller in their casing got messed up. (Never a Toshiba for me, because by solving the problem myself in the appropriate manner I lost their useless warranty).
Here's a link to a good article that will help you to troubleshoot the startup error. You might also check Toshiba support online and see what the error light code indicates.
