My friend just recently got a Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5307 and he's displeased with the Win8 experience. He asked me to install Win7 on the machine, but I can't for the life of me get it to boot to USB. I've tried all 3 USB ports, none of them seem to like the stick. It does say "Loading Files" with the progress bar on the USB 3.0 port, but it just goes to a Win8 PC diagnostic afterwards, and tells me Windows couldn't start properly. I tried booting to USB on my Acer Aspire (Also running Win8) and it worked without error. I don't know what to do.I've set USB first in the boot order.Something odd though is that when I press f12 in POST to get into the boot menu, USB is listed along with the other devices, but the device name isn't there, unlike everything else. The menu looks like this:. USB

I have now burned through 2 laptops last week.. both were Toshiba Satellites Model:C655-S5132. I was running iTunes, Google Chrome, �Torrent, and Google Music Manager on both when they died. What happened was they both froze up when I was listening to music in iTunes and I held the power button down to shut them off.. now they won't boot. I am only really concerned in getting one of them to work for right now due to the fact that I don't have a computer other than these two.
The computer I am trying to fix will boot up past the Toshiba Screen and then will go to a black screen with a white flashing underscore in the top left corner and will not boot any further. I am able to use a windows 7 install disk to try and fresh install it, but I get an error message when it tries to move files. I was somehow able to access the explorer and view all my files through the install disk so my hard drive isn't crashed at least. I cannot boot in safe mode, I cannot boot to last good configuration, no system restore files work, I don't have a saved system image, and I cannot get into Toshiba recovery console.
My Toshiba Satellite C655 laptop runs on Windows 7. Today it will not complete the boot-up process. I get to the Windows welcome screen and just as it appears to be going to the sign-on, the screen goes black with a white cursor. From this point, I can get nowhere.I can open in safe mode, but am unable to run any diagnostic from there.
I have a new toshiba satellite p870 that came with windows 8 and I would like to install windows 7 on its second hard drive for compatibility reasons. Every time I try to boot from the windows 7 setup disc it gets stuck on the "starting windows" logo screen and will not proceed. I have tried both booting from the disc and doing a custom install from inside windows 8 with the same result. It was necessary to disable secure boot in the bios in order to get the disc to begin to boot. This computer has 2 hard drives and I am attempting to install windows 7 to a partition on the second drive (the main drive had an error about GPT). I am using a windows 7 professional disc received from microsoft a few years ago to avoid burning a new disc. I have set up dual boot on several other computers but this one is different, Is there anything I can do to get this to work?
As you see in my title it wont boot... It shows the No Boot Disk screen...The only thing I did yesterday was install Warcraft 3and if or is Intel Core i3 and in InsydeH2o Utility it shows No HDD/SSD are connectedscreen[URL]and awhile ago before it started malfunctioning I experienced a BSOD soEDIT:I tryed going into the Advanced Boot thingy which requirespressing f8 but it just shows black screen and everytime i press it beeps
I rebooted my labtop everything came back ok but the webcam application that normally is under utilities i went to toshiba website installed their so called application but it's not doing anything, what can i do to get it back.
I have a toshiba lp645-s4059 model and it does load win 7 but when i try to get to bios setting with ESC,F1,F2 and etc. it wont work and i don't have recory cd or anything else. I want to reset my user password but i can not boot from nowhere.
I'm just trying to find out why my labtop keeps on turning of on me randomly. when it shuts down it resests itself and comes to the "you havnt shut down your computer corectly" screen. if i go on safe modes then i doesnt turn off, but i cant use all my stuff. i have recenly bout a cooler pad and some compressed air to blow it out but nothing seems to work
windows 7 alienware disc to install on my laptop and after installing it all my drivers are gone so i can't get on the internet wireless. i tried downloading the drivers from toshiba's website and transferring on a usb to my laptop and i couldn't get it to work. might be doing something wrong.
My laptop came with windows 7 installed. It crashed I guess because of a virus. It is all cleaned but I did not get a windows 7 disc or back it up. I cannot get online or on the computer. How do I get the installation disc?
manufacturer: toshiba model: satellite l555d os: windows 7 home premium 64 bit cpu/ram: 2.3 ghz / 3838 mb video card: amd m880g with ati mobility radeon hd 4200 sound card: realtek high definition audio
it's been happening lately. my toshiba satellite(windows 7 home permium 64 bits) has been freezing up with multiple, thin, multi-colored lines with a noise similar to when a sound track on a cd sticks or freezes and no mouse response or any kind of response at all. i have to press and hold the power botton and force it to shut down. i noticed it does this more often when i try to play a video game,virus scan,video call on skype and less frequently on Internet (Internet might just be a coincidence). sometimes after the computer restarts and i virus scan or skype then i have no problems. i think it happens when i virus scan or skype when i have both multiple firefox and google chrome windows open at once but i cannot be sure. i've tested the theory a few times but it's inconclusive however i am confident that virus scans or video game are most likely to trigger the freeze even if they are the only thing i have open on the screen.
sometimes i get that message in the blue box that says "windows is shutting down to prevent damage to your computer....." the strange thing is that after i force it to shut down if i try to restart it immidiately then it will boot. all the lights will come on except the orange one in the left hand corner,the screen does not come on and windows does not load. if i leave it for 30 minutes or sometimes less after it crashed then it will restart .the funny thing is that i had this problems about 8 months ago when i tried playing a video game called a.v.a. about 2 minutes into play it would freeze with the same noise i mentioned earlier.i repeatedly tried to play the game and it happened every single time and everytime i force shut down the laptop and try to restart it right after then windows will not load and the orange light does not come on. i removed the game and reinstalled it and i never had that problem again.since i got the laptop it has randomly restarted like 4 times and i've had it for about 1 year and 2 months but now it is just freezing up (mostly) or i get that message in the blue box. at around april of this year the game stopped working. i keep getting error reports when i try to reinstall it and my windows no longer recongnized the digital signature of the company that made the game.
i'm not sure if it's overheating,i have a hard drive or motherboard problem or if it's a software problem. i've tried:
system restore defrag disc clean up
non of these have helped. i've also tried using seatool for windows to try to look for errors in my hard drive and it has not found any. i've also done that thing where windows,with the black screen and white text, check through your files for errors and corrupted stuff but that report says that it hasn't found any errors at all. my computer has no slow down in performance that i can notice. it doesn't take long to start up nor does it take long to shut down. i don't get random error reports or anything like that. it works fine except for the freezing bit.
the fan seems to be working just fine and the latop doesn't get that hot. sometimes it freezes when it's barely warm to the touch and other times it would be significantly warmer but it would not freeze even if i have multiple firefox and googlechrome windows open. before all of this when my game was working i use to play for hours with the exhaust at the side significantly heating up the desk and the computer would run perfectly without problems except that brief period i mentioned earlier where the game froze 3 minutes in to actually playing the game,reinstalled it and solved the problem. yesterday it froze on me while i was on skpye and today it froze on me about 5 minutes after windows log in on Internet without the computer getting hot,just barely warm. i just don't get it!
i've try using a vaccum to clean the vents without opening the computer. i've removed and reinserted my memory just incase they were loose and i've also removed and reinserted the hard drive to be sure that it was in properly and that has not stopped the problem either.n.b. i did do a virus scan with a trial version of kaspersky pure that i installed less than a month ago and it does say that i have a virus called "virus heur trojan.script.iframer" and a medium and high risk events. i've tried to remove or quarantine them but nothing happens and when i scan again with kaspersky pure or kaspersky virus removal tool they find no viruses but the trojan report is still there with the option of removing and quanrantine.
as i've said before i've seen no slow down in performance and it works just fine except for the freezing and the blue box message. the only noticeable problem is that both firefox and googlechrome have been just a little,little bit buggy in that sometimes i would have to close down a window and reopen it again because the pages were not loading but that's only on facebook and a few other websites and i thnk that's because of my internet connection. i've noticed that firefox is a little bit slower than usual but that's it. as i said, i've gotten no random error reports,not from windows 7 or my browser.
Seems like most folks I've talked to are trying out Windows 7 on desktop rigs. I'd like to put it on my GF's new Toshiba Satellite A305; what should I expect? Is Windows 7's laptop support better than WinXP? I'd hate to have to keep the POS Vista Home Basic it came with, but she might expect it to, ya know, boot...
Freakin' laptop makers love using oddball hardware and adding "features" that require their custom "patches". On her previous Toshiba, a clean install of WinXP Pro SP2 would boot maybe 1 try out of 10, even after installing every driver and patch they offered on their support site.
Friend of mine runs a small farm supply business, he had three reps, he now has two. The third bought his own laptop on company credit card (allowed) it's a Toshiba Satellite L640. He handed it back in on his last day (unwillingly) friend tried to start it up and goes straight to a black screen with blue password box, can't F2 or F12 just goes straight to password, can't boot off CD. Former employee won't answer phone calls and not sure he would provide it anyway.
About half the time, when my computer tries to go into sleep mode when I've left it for a while, it doesn't fall asleep properly. I'm not very good with computers, but when the computer is on standby the power light at the front flashes. Well, sometimes The screen will go dark, the the power light won't flash and the NUM LOCK button is still lit up. It doesn't respond to me toggling on the mouse pad and the only thing I can do is force a shut down and reboot.
It doesn't happen all the time, but it seems to be happening a lot more often than it should be.It happen almost constantly when I was downloading a game from steam. I had to keep the computer constantly running for it to download and couldn't leave it to sit.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L505 with Windows 7 64bit. After starting up and entering the log in screen my computer freezes. I can access and work the computer through safe mode with no problems. I've checked the drivers and all are fine but one. The hdaudbus.sys is updated but will not startup. Is this what is stopping my computer from running in normal mode? Also, I have reformatted the hard drive and have also reset the computer back to factory setting.
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, originally installed with Vista and Win-7 capable (manufacturer site checked), but currently installed with Ubuntu. My installation gets stuck on expanding files - it goes no further than 0% and then throws up error 0x80070017. clean the main partition (not the 100MB one created by the CD) with the Clean ALL command on the X: drive. Karlsnooks, I see that you have the same laptop.
Im currently setting it up and everything was going smoothly until it finished. It rebooted, started up and then started 'Configuring System' this finished then rebooted. Then did the same thing, then it did it again. Now its frozen on the 'Configuring System' screen.
I have a Toshiba Satellite a500 laptop. It's OS is Windows 7 - x64
Back when Windows 7 came out, I shelled out the ~$700 to convert all the computers in my house to Windows 7. Ever since then I've had a friend considering buying Windows 7.He recently took the plunge an invested in a copy of Ultimate (64-bit). I backed up his personal data, formatted and Installed a clean copy of Windows 7. On first boot I ran Windows Update (his hardware was all supported by Windows) and did the required restart. During the restart, the computer Blue-Screened, restarts automatically, entered startup repair the second time, "fixes it", and the cycle starts again.So I figure "Okay, one of the updates is bad." I reformat and reinstall again, and the computer first-boots normally again. Just to test I restart the computer and the bsod/repair cycle starts again.I finally gave up for the time being and just reinstall Vista 64-bit on their again and it works fine. His is the only computer I've had this happen to, and I've installed 7 on about 12 other computers so far.
