Recovery disks does not not for the Satellite L350

I have a Toshiba Satellite L350, I bought a few years ago

Originally it was a laptop Vista Home premium and I opted for the Toshiba windows 7 upgrade and its been pretty much without problem.

But recently something went a bit weird and things were not only works well (he would not always disconnect you and never seemed to stop correctly) and various other applications does not work properly.

After a few uninstalls, reinstall, scans and patches from Microsoft has done nothing that I decided to take the plunge and use the recovery disc.

I bought a Toshiba when I am the machine initially and had made one myself, before you upgrade windows 7 and a new after.
I still have the windows 7 upgrade DVD so I can apply after if I had to start back on vista.

The only other big change has had an upgrade of RAM 4 GB - I still the original of the RAM, if I need it, but before that there is no hardware problem not reported and chkdsk was also very good.
So for me it was the o/s that was the problem.

I tried now all recovery discs and they all have the same problem of reports that imagex cannot decompress the second frame of the file because it is corrupted to block 90 I n t have this real message at your fingertips
but can be updated later.

I can t see that I m something wrong, like everything I do is to put the dvd in the drive and reboot the laptop with the F12 key to boot from the recovery DVD and follow the screen controls on.
You use reports from such that previously or I am doing something stupid?

Thank you


It's very strange that al recovery discs show the same error message. As far as I know when you start recovery image installation that the HARD drive will be formatted, new partitions created, recovery image copied to the second partition of HARD drive and as the last step is the installation of recovery image.
> I bought a Toshiba when I am the machine initially and had made one myself before the upgrade to windows 7...
Have you tested the two of them in the past?

In General, all you do is right. In my opinion, the problem may be recovery image itself or perhaps HDD has some defect in certain areas.
If you can get the second HARD drive somewhere Exchange it, value default BIOS settings and test the installation of recovery again.

  • Recovery disk does not work on Satellite Pro P10-304

    I'm not fussed on something special for this old laptop, just a second computer for the kids to do their homework on.

    Hmm. sounds like a HARD drive failure
    Have you checked if the HARD drive has been recognized in the BIOS?

    > Something on an Ethernet cable unplugged error message.
    I guess you get an error PXE - E61 starting at startup.
    This message appears if the laptop tries to boot from LAN.

    This could happen if there are no other sources of boot as HARD drive, etc.

    Well, I put t know why you recovery CD doesn t work. Have you checked the CD some scratches? Have you tried to clean this CD?
    However if it of impossible to use the recovery CD, you can contact the ASP and buy a new one. It doesn t expensive.

  • Y at - it a recovery disk, we can purchase for the X220T for UEFI mode?

    As my topic asks,

    Y at - it a recovery disk, we can purchase for the X220T for UEFI mode?

    Given that normal disks only works for legacy mode (btw, he correctly aligns the recovery with the SSD partition?).

    Your comments are very much appreciated!

    There is no recovery for X 220 UEFI disk (or any system of Lenovo currently-shipping).

  • Recovery disk does not work for Satellite A100-197

    I'm working on an A100-197, which would not boot into normal Windows, but was able to start in safe mode.
    I used MSConfig to disable all startup and other services. Not good.
    I used the system restore. Not good.
    I have scanned for viruses, rootkits, etc. None found. Not good.
    I copied data to another hard drive in SafeMode with network and inserted the recovery DVDs.
    Through unpacking and got message saying to remove DVD - did this and system seems to freeze.
    Click the exit button and it restarts, but Windows froze (the movement stopped moving blobs). Tried safe mode
    but got a message saying that the installation of the system has not finished.
    Tried the recovery again, but this time I left the unpacking screen 100% of the overnight to see if
    He has nothing. There can be no. Click on exit and got the same as above.
    HDD formatted in partition magic and I tried again. Not good.
    Created 5 GB FAT32 partition and DVD files copied to the FAT32 partition. Tried to run the decompression program
    back. He refused to run in DOS mode.
    I think that connects the hard drive on another machine and RecoUnpack.exe a work PC running to
    unzip the files on the laptop HARD drive image, but this is crazy - the recovery disk is supposed to retrieve the
    System. What else can I try?


    I would say that you have some serious hardware malfunction. Have you ever tried to check the RAM and the processor?
    In your case, I would try to run the UBCD4Win ( and superPI allows to see if the RAM is faulty.

    It could also be another component such as the motherboard or something on the motherboard (graphics, sound, some capacitors)

    It s just a suggestion, but you could really give my hint a chance. ;)
    I would also try another HARD drive in this machine, maybe the controller from your old HARD drive disappeared...

    Welcome and appreciate all comments


  • Satellite A30 - 203 - recovery disk does not work

    Hi all

    I have an old Satellite A30-203 and have a problem. I tried to format my laptop but the product recovery cd does not seem to work in deletion the data on my disk, its becomes blocked during loading files of ntfs? Now I am not able to retrieve a windows session would I need a new product recovery cd and would be able to get it?

    Thank you

    Hi dimation,

    It is difficult to say what is the reason of this but made is either it s a laptop problem itself or the recovery disc (e.g. scratches) causes this problem.

    In my opinion the best way to check this using a Microsoft Windows disk. If the installation completed successfully, you need a new recovery disk. As a result, you can ask a service provider authorized in your country! :)

  • HP ENVY 17 - 1190nr l 3D: recovery disks does not not for HP Envy 17 - 1190nr

    My main HARD drive died. Toshiba 500 GB MK5056GSY was the 'C' drive factory installed. The laptop also has a "D" drive, which was the same exact brand, model and size.  (secondary HARD disk does not work at all. Long story, but I think it is a driver or a hardware problem with the motherboard)

    I overwhelmed the secondary HDD at the location main, reformatted and reinstalled the operating system with the set of recovery DVD 7, SUCCUSSFULLY disks.  But, since I can't have a second HD to wor, I decided to spend the primary HARD disk capacity, so I installed a Seagate 1 TB HARD drive.  Now, I have reinstalled the operating system using the recovery discs 7 DVD and when the 7th finished disc, a window open warning that says "Recovery manager cannot restore your computer using the original image. "Please contact the HP support (Yes right, it's a joke) error code: 0xe0ef000e.

    I also tried to install the operating system with the recovery of a 240 GB SSD disks. Same question.

    BUT, the original secondary drive allows the operating system recovery 7 DVD image reset goes to work.


    Finally, if I install a stand alone Windows 7 OS for the new Seagate 1 TB drive, it works fine.  The problem is that all additional drivers, programs etc. provided with the laptop originally are net, just a light version of Windows 7. The works of the OS, but the wireless, the blueetooth, readers of cards, etc. do not work. And missing a few programs that comes with the original image (some are too expensive to buy when I wouldn't need it again).

    Thanks for any idea on this issue.

  • Satellite P100 - 160 PSPAAE - recovery disk does not work


    My problem is that when I used the restore disk provided with the laptop it froze the computer when he was to "expand our files (0%). »
    I thought that drive was defective, so bought a new drive of Toshiba (£30) but get the same error.
    Machine is now starts rained because the recovery disks erased the hard drive before freezing.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you


    To be honest, this is the first time I see this error
    I doubt that the recovery disk is defective or the drive HARD because as you say it was possible to install Win XP on this laptop

    I would recommend formatting the HARD drive again to erase all partitions and format the HARD drive using the Win XP disc. Then take the recovery disk and try to reinstall the new Vista operating system

    On this virtual path, it is not easy to offer the exact diagnosis, but of course, there must be a problem with the HARD drive. Can you get a second one for test purposes and exchange it. Just to be sure if the HDD is troublemaker.

  • For Satellite L450 recovery disk does not work

    My laptop's daughter was so slow, that we decided to take it back to factory settings. There is no disk recovery with the laptop because it has the repair work however when we did the computer is no longer started upward and when we started it in safe mode, the repair option was gone!

    I've then went to and bought the recovery disc, seem to work, load files etc and then says loading windows, but the screen just goes black.

    I can't find a phone number or contact point on the invoice and if I will have to consider in a shop to repair I don t want to have paid for both disks that do not work!

    I do something wrong or can any one help?

    Thank you

    New laptops are available with preinstalled operating system and without recovery disk but in user s manual is clearly described that you can create this preinstalled software recovery disk Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator.

    I m wondering really you didn't mark this option.

    In any case, try to reuse this disc to see if the problem occurs again and again. If you will not be able to install the original recovery image I recommend you contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
