Partition lost after recovery - Satellite L30

I had two partitions on my HD (Satellite L30-114).

I used the Toshiba recovery Cd to restore windows back to my laptop. The CD has not offered me a full mode or an Expert as written here he has just recovered without any input on my side!

After recovery, Windows does not see my second partition. I used the disk management utility, and it is said there are 17 GB of disk unassigned space (this is my second Partition!).

Can and how can I restore it?

TX a lot!



It seems that the L30 comes with a new version of the recovery cd.
I think that the recovery procedure is a bit different than the old with 2 different recovery modes (standard and expert)

I know a little new recovery procedure because a friend of mine bought a new Satellite with this recovery CD. He asked me for the installation of the laptop and we checked.

It seems that you must press the setting button after the language selection.
If you n t use the button setting for the configuration if the recovery procedure will be remove and erase everything on the HARD drive. I think you didn't configure the settings and therefore all the partitions have been deleted.

Unfortunately I think that there is not much to do. You the partition has been deleted and it of not possible to bring back the lost data.

  • No DVD-ROM after recovery - Satellite A100-289

    I recently had my A100-289 expedition in for repair. A few days later the unit returned to me with a new motherboard.
    Unfortunately my OS has not started, so I got it from the DVD.

    Once you have completed the recovery process, Windows MCE prompted with the "new hardware found" - Assistant, who wanted to install a driver for the DVD drive. Usually you don't need drivers for these, do you think?

    After searching in vain the net for several hours, I tried to recover once more, then maybe the problem would disappear by itself, but unfortunately this was not the case, not even after the third recovery.

    I tried to install on a clean install disc that I used on my desktop before, just to see if it works and then uninstall it. What can I say? It didn't work anyway :(
    I am writing from said computer laptop on which I have installed as secondary to Mandriva Linux 2008 operating system. The DVD player works perfectly here.

    I concluded it must be a software problem, which has to do with Windows maybe, there is a way to solve it, but I don't have a working solution yet, although I tried to uninstall and reinstall both driver and drive several times without success.

    Any ideas?


    First of all if you are able to install one operating system and then the CD/DVD drive works and surely it s not a hardware issue.
    Then you should check the Device Manager after installing the recovery CD if there is no yellow exclamation point.
    Then you must remove the drive from Device Manager and should access the registry.

    It to completely remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters from the following registry key values:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    and then restart the laptop.

    Good luck

  • Partition lost after diskpart own


    In attempting to bootcamp 10 Windows on a MBP 2010 6.2 via the USB port, I was running in issues with the hybrid MBR/GPT tables this created Boot Camp Assistant. I came across some terrible advice that a clean "diskpart" would facilitate the question and it ruined my OSX partition map. Now I have a partition bootable system and could not access my OSX partition somehow. I currently have the corrupt system firewired to other Macbook and target disc mode. I'd love to be able to rewrite the partition table, or retrieve the data. I'm pretty sure that all the data are still there.

    I searched overnight through the support forums, trying to figure out how to solve this problem, but can't seem to find an appropriate response and don't really know how to proceed. I have the usually requested info screen grabs.

    The highlighted partition is almost certainly that I lost, but by pressing 'p' back "For this file system was did not implement." I am running a deep scan while I wait just to make sure.

    Any advice on how I should proceed?

    TestDisk can not recover any HFS + or inspect them. You can use Fdisk TPG to recreate the entries of TPG, but the content may not be what you expect. Use the utility diskpart from M$ on a Mac is risky.

  • How to recover email files lost after compressing files

    I am using windows XP sp3, two days ago, I performed an outlook express file compression process, after only a quick jump

    and asked me to do. Unfortunately, a part of the e-mail files (year 2011) were found missing in the outmail storage box after file compression.

    I think that they were deleted automatically during file compression. Although I found a backup file in the trash, I can't yet recover

    the e-mails lost after recovery.

    For your information: before compressing files - size storage box outmail - abt, 1.2 GB / after compression 827 MB

    MY mailbox: * address email is removed from the privacy *

    It is a common problem with OE because if we let the dbx files grow beyond a few hundred megabytes, they are subject to corruption.  You should do an immediate backup of your messages in the event of further loss.  So, if you have bak files in the trash or in the message store directory, you can try to recover them.

    For references, see points 2, 3, 4 and 6 here: and import the bak files see here: and if you were unable to recover what was lost, then see here: the latter is able to scan the entire drive for messages and bypassing the file system and if something can get back them It can.


  • Satellite L30 - I lost the recovery disk

    Hi guys,.

    I have a Satellite L30 and need to completely reinstall Vista but I lost my recovery CD

    Help, please


    Are you sure it's the recovery disk?
    What is the content of the CD if you find Windows to display the contents of the CD/DVD?

    These messages appear normally if the CD is noisy and so it can t be read properly or in the worst cases the CD/DVD drive is faulty and should be replaced. :(

  • How to recover the Satellite L30-140 - I lost the recovery disk


    I have a Satellite L30-140 and I want to recover the windows on that.
    I lost the dvd recovery-. -.
    Is there a method to recover? as acers Alt + f10 recover menu?

    Thanks for your help :)


    You need the recovery disc, either the clean Microsoft Windows disk in order to install the operating system gain.
    L30 being a little older, I doubt that you can order the recovery disk
    That's why you need a Microsoft Windows CD!
    You will need to buy this CD if you are not the owner of the Microsoft Windows CD.

    It's very strange

    The error message says something about RAID but the L30 does not support the RAID and also the RAID drivers are not necessary.

    I m a bit confused and I think there could be something wrong with the HARD drive.
    Have you tried to reinstall the operating system from the original CD of Microsoft Windows?

    Try this format the disk using this CD, and then try again to reinstall the operating system.

    If this does not work then a HARD disk problem is possible

  • Satellite L30-134 - after HDD upgrade PC freezes and won't start

    I upgraded my Satellite L30-134 of the standard 60 GB HDD for a new 120 GB. After that, I have the following problem:

    (1) after installing XP form to the recovery House DVDs works fine but after that 2-3 weeks of normal use it instantly freeze pc and after hard reboot the OP start up can do anything but to format the HARD drive. After that format cannot install original XP and Vista, the progress bar show me that the installation is complete but after reboot, nothing happens. This problem persists long wery. After 3-4 clean up one after another the pc starts and runs very well about 3 weeks. What is the problem? Any idea?

    (2) when I first install Vista or Linux PC is runing fine, but not in normal parameters. Always freeze but after hard reset works fine for about 2-3 days. When I install XP first that the PC is useles after hard reboot the only thing I can do is to format the HARD drive and do a clean install.

    PS: The HARD disk is produced Original Toshiba.


    This strange boyfriend s but to me it sounds like that, these problems are caused from the new HARD drive that may be defective.

    I think you should test the HDD using Hitachi Drive Fitness Test:
    With the Drive Fitness Test, you can test your HARD drive. Download the CD image, burn it to a CD and boot from it. You can then the HARD drive test.
    On the same site is a user's guide if you want to know more.

    Good luck and give us feedback, what happened! :)

  • Satellite L30 - 10Y: error checking after the 2 GB of RAM


    I have a Satellite L30 - 10Y ^ months ago I walking the RAM 1.5 GB by adding a card of 1 GB of RAM in the 512 MB card provided it worked well.
    I also have walking my son Hi-Grade lapto with exactly the same specifications of RAM that worked well also. So I decided to grade until my L30 10Y with another card of the same specification to bring it up to 2 GB as specified by TOSHIBA.

    I booted the computer to find Hay presto after the message following the start screen appears * "_the file is possibly corrupted.
    The file header checksum does not match the calculated checksum_ "* the computer then froze and I turned it off."

    Controls, I did tried two cards into the two slots without change, 1 card in both slots (an empty) works very well. Other card in the two sons of slots (works Fine) the two card slots in my computer (works very well) all three cards and 512 MB card in the configuration of the slots and cards (works fine). The three cards 1 GB in all configerations cards and slots to the error message and other times 1 long beep and 2 short.
    Yes, the cards have been installed correctly. Impossible to change something to do with the BIOS, even though it may be accssed. Cannot run dvd player although I can select.

    I went back to 1.5 GB and reinstalled all OS the drive recovery Toshiba try all over again the same results. Running windows Vista Edition family Basic, Bios is the last download. RAM is compatible. Cheep Hi-Grade son accepts that all RAM in all Configurations without sentence windows XP operating system.

    Can anyone think of anything either, I have not tried, or I just have to go and by a Hi-grade computer?


    I read your announcement carefully, and it seems that you have checked that everything what is possible
    So in my opinion the two ram modules are not compatible set
    It's the only plausible explanation for this problem.

    AFAIK the L30 - 10Y needs DDR2 533 MHz (PC2-4200) 200 - PIN SODIMM modules.

    Finally the short beeps are coming from the BIOS and it means that the error has been detected.

  • After downgrading from Vista Satellite L30-101 does not read DVD


    Like many people, I didn't like Vista and so returned to the use of Windows XP.

    In doing so, I lost a lot of things like the ability to watch DVDs and sound, most of these problems fixed so easily by downloading the drivers from this site.

    However, even after the DVD driver download I can't read DVDs yet.
    When you try to play through Windows media player I get say error message that I did not have a MPEG-2 decoder, in the section web site help, it suggests where to get one, but you have to play for each other.
    After having one in the first place, I don't think I should buy a new one.

    If anyone has a solution it would be greatly appretiated if they could let me know.

    Thank you

    PS I have a Satellite L30-101

    I think you have a codec problem, but I'm not sure. Maybe you should install the latest version of Media Player and codec Xvid, DivX and AC3. These are free (google it!). Or you can try alternative software, such as WinDVD or PowerDVD, you can try the demo versions.

  • Satellite L30-10 X: how to pass in crisis recovery mode

    Toshiba Satellite L30-10 X.
    If you know FOR CERTAIN how to enter the "recovery from crisis mode" on THIS computer, please suggest.
    Please answer only if you know how to deal with this model.

    I tried Fn + B, Fn + Esc, Fn + R, Fn + F, Win + B, Win + Esc, Win + R, Win + F with no result.
    As it is said, screen may flash briefly after the connection of the power supply with these key combinations pressed. It is not the case.
    Or I see USB FDD reading tent after turning on the laptop or laptop give me any other sign that he entered in crisis recovery mode.

    Can you tell us if this model has a boot block in the EEPROM at all or may be it is also killed.

    I don't like the idea of weld EEPROM, still at the service center.

    Behavior of the laptop:
    Laps at high speed of the fan, lights power LED (and battery also LED, if the battery is connected), completely black screen, USB ports power.
    Laptop computer can be turned on and off by the power button / stop.

    Here's how I try to recover the BIOS:
    -all (USB devices, external monitor) is disconnected from the laptop
    -Floppy USB drive is connected, the crisis recovery disk is inserted
    -battery is taken out
    -HARD drive and DVD player are out for safety
    -power supply connected to the laptop computer and disconnected from the electrical network
    -J' I press on and hold one of the magic key combinations, plug the mains (actually I use a switch to save the life of the point of sale), press the 'power' on the computer laptop while now the magic keys for awhile, then release the buttons and wait for the miracle to happen.
    -If I need to try a different combination of keys, I about to disconnect the power supply to discharge all the capacitors (when the laptop is turned on) and try again.

    Hi TwinCat,

    > I think, it's better to go to the service centre before I kill portable feeding repeated on and outside.
    I think so for and that is a very good decision.

    From my own experience, I can say that my authorized service provider works pretty fast and the technicians are friendly guys.

    I hope that everything can be clarified as soon as possible! :)

  • Satellite A10: I lost the recovery CD - how do I get one?


    I am trying to reinstall Windows XP on my Satellite A10, but I lost the recovery CD.
    I had a 'normal' Windows XP installation CD I try to use to reinstall, but installation will not take the serial number on the botton of my laptop...

    Do you know what is a workaround for this?
    And ultimately how to get a copy of the installation CD...

    Best regards


    The key that is located on the bottom of the unit is only an OEM key.
    This means that it only works with the OEM preinstalled and bundled with the laptop version. Simply said, you can't use this key with other Windows operating systems.

    If you want to reinstall the operating system from the original Windows CD, then you must use the key that belongs to this CD!

    However, you can order a new CD from recovery of the ASP in your country.
    Simply contact the guys. They might help you to order.
