New hard drive installed on Portege M200 but does not start

I upgraded the hard drive in my Portege M200 from 4 GB to 80 GB using Parted Magic to clone the original disc. Cloning complete successfully, but instead of starting with the new drive, the M200 simply display a blinking cursor when turned on. Any help is very appreciated.

TIA, update



Maybe you can try one of the below to solve your problem:

BUT! ALWAYS keep a backup!

Boot the system with a flexible BACK (with fdisk.exe inside) to restore the MBR by typing


This works even on a SATA drive. Start alternative all Win2k or XP installation CD, go to the console command and issure of recovery


See you soon

    "Because my recovery disks that I made 3 years ago does not, I just installed Vista 32 bit and then on the Toshiba site, where I have downloaded all the drivers available for my laptop (a Satellite Pro A300-1MC) on a USB key (that I don't have a driver to connect to broadband on my laptop) and when I tried to open on my laptop a message comes up saying" Please insert the last disk of all selfextracting and click OK to continue.

    So what I do now?
    Thank you

    Sounds like you have enabled autoplay
    Whenever you insert the memory key USB flash it will try and read the contents of the files on it.
    You can disable this by holding SHIFT when you insert the USB key.
    This should disable the AutoPlay option.
    Then you can go to MY computer in order to access the USB key.

  • New hard drive installed Vista Ultimate, now I can not install my printer - why?

    Computer Dell laptop hard drive replaced (warranty) with Vista Ultimate, I installed Office 2007 Professional disc 1 fine, windows update is fine, but I cannot complete the installation for my Kodak printer disc. Has been given the Internet to install via the internet address - link doesn't work either - drive flashing green bar "installation preparation" then nothing? Link Web shows 'Preparing to install' with a full bar green - then stuck there. A few minutes later, he disappears. Never installed. Do not open the drive or cross the bar - never open the Green window to install. Support Kodak decided that I was missing the .net on pre-installed OS HDD framework files. Enough of 3.45 and 4. Is this correct? Do I need previous versions, or something else is the cause. How can I check to see that all the files are correct and understand WHY I can not INSTALL MY PRINTER?

    Until the hard disk, memory & the keyboard have been replaced by the Dell tech, I had installed and printed on this Kodak printer for 9-12 months. Suggestions welcome.

  • Installation of Vista on the new hard drive was interrupted, and now I can not start the computer

    So I decided that I need a bigger hard drive. I got a 500 GB hard drive, so I have it PLOPPED in my Acer Aspire 5517 with my vista boot drive, turned on and began to go through the process. Once he got to the phase 'installation complete' it seems to take a while, so I let it run all night. Once I got up, it was on a black screen with the mouse, I let stand a few more minutes but still nothing. I turned off and started it expects to find to return at the beginning of the installation, but instead he began to start from what is on the hard drive at this time. It got to the screen with the loading bar and the sign 'Microsoft Corporation'. The loading bar was very frigidity and stopped and started randomly. I let it do this while I went to school, but when I got home, it was always the same loading screen. I rebooted and tried to start in safe mode, but when I do it it stops at crcdisk.sys, and never forwarded charges. I tried to do the reset thing factory start it but that doesn't seem to work. My other puny hard drive still works, but the other does not. I searched the internet but have not seen any other problem like it. I want to just start completely clean of my new 500 GB. Please help!

    Hi James,

    1. What is the number of brand and model of the hard disk of 500 GB?

    2. How did the 500 GB hard drive connected to the computer? It is external or internal?

    To troubleshoot the unable to start the issue to cause corrupted driver, some files that can not be loaded during the startup process must be fixed or restored. So, let's check the disk by using the Windows Recovery Console.

    (a) put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.

    (b) press a key when the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ".

    (c) select a language, a time, a currency and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next.

    (d) click on repair your computer.

    (e) (click on the operating system you want to repair), and then click Next.

    (f) in the System Recovery Options dialog box, click command prompt. Type chkdsk c:/f to try to correct the errors.

    (g) Note: answer them when chkdsk asks you if you want to check the disk next boot Vista

    (h) after the recording of the disc, and then run sfc/scannow to check the corruption of system files.

    Important: when running chkdsk on the drive hard if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost.

    Check out TechNet help links and check if that helps:

    The computer starts stops at crcdisk.sys

  • How to get a product key, that I had a new hard drive installed in the computer shop and it seems that there is no key for windows 7

    Original title: window 7

    Hi can one tell me how to get a product key, that I had a new hard drive installed in the computer shop and it seems that there is no key for windows 7, I just brought Office 2016 and he did not finish the load down with the windows key 7.

    Because Windows 7 is in limited stock because Microsoft ended sales in October 2013, this created demand due to its rarity. This means the retail boxed copies request a bonus, while the OEM System Builder copies remain affordable.

    Full version (retail):

    -Includes the rights of transfer to another computer.

    -Does not require a qualifying earlier version of Windows.


    Upgrade version (detail):

    -Includes the rights of transfer to another computer.

    -require a qualifying earlier version of Windows.

    -Expensive, but less expensive full version

    OEM System Builder version:

    The OEM of Windows 7 versions are identical to the versions commercial full license with the following exception:

    -OEM versions don't offer any free direct support from Microsoft technical support Microsoft

    -OEM Licenses are tied to the computer first you install and activate it on

    -OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard

    -OEM versions does not move directly from an older Windows operating system

    There is nothing wrong to use it too, especially that all future versions of Windows will be full versions.

    You can find software OEM System Builder of dozens of online merchants. The current price for OEM Windows 7 Professional Newegg, for example, is $ 140. When I checked a few minutes ago, Amazon offered packages OEM Windows 7 Professional from several vendors at prices ranging from $ 101 to $ 150. When I checked earlier, a package specifically designed for reconditioned PCs cost only $ 50 for a 64-bit copy.

    There is no technical limitation to prevent you from using OEM software on your computer, although this software only works for a clean install, not an upgrade. In the past, Microsoft has been remarkably inconsistent in his advice to clients on the question of whether this practice is allowed. (See "is allowed to use Windows OEM on your own PC? Don't ask Microsoft. »)

    I went in lightroom and can't find my photos. I lost the link before and did the right click to find and they have been found, but it's different.

    I bought an external hard drive and copied some elements but did not cut their.  I did a back up on my external hard drive, but even once did not move them. I did the simple troubleshooting and it doesn't work.  I'm trying to find the original by right clicking the? on the folder LR and once I find the file it tells me that Lightroom has this file already in the catalog - and I want to merge. I tried one and it disappeared or moved. Help!

    Use the file Explorer to see if the images are still in their original location. I suspect that move instead of copy them. This can happen if you drag you the.

    I found that it is best to use either right click on a file or folder name and select copy then right click on the drive-destination folder and select Paste or use keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste folder and files from one disk to another. The keyboard shortcuts are the CTRL + key C to copy and Ctrl + V to paste in the selected destination folder-drive.
