Satellite A135: Vista will not start after replacing HARD drive using the recovery disk

Toshiba Satellite A135-s7403 HARD drive failed, I have replaced the 80 GB with a WD Scorpio blue 250 GB hitachi. When I try to restore with recovery disk came with the laptop, it passes through two discs 1 and 2 and starts with the start-up of windows for the first time and then runs to the greenish with the spinner blue screen please wait... thne black screens for a second or 2 and then back to spinner, please wait and then it appears the box "installation of windows could not configure windows to run on hardware. This computer' only option is to click OK.

Where to click ok, you get an another msg that says "windows could not complete the installation, install reinstall windows. I tried like 50 times now. Startup Repair indicates the root = failure cause while the installation program is underway. I know that my drive are good, as I adjusted used then about a month when I upgraded the memory because the original memory 512 MB was not enough o well running vista.


To be honest I n don't know what the problem is there but can you get the original installation disc of Microsoft and try to install the OS, just to see if the OS installation will complete successfully?

    Hey fzsq5s

    you have also an activation problem because your hp vista oem license is bound to the original material that it came installed

    read the information about the oem and sales license in detail below

    If your computer is pre-installed with vista, it is classified as an oem license and it is related to the material that it is 1 installed on

    as in the foregoing any case at level or the replacement of the motherboard will be done in collaboration with the manufacturer of the computer in your case hp

    If he had a retail license you might have upgraded or replace your motherboard you

    but you then have to reinstall vista as the old drivers of the motherboard would be still installed

    I hope that the foregoing explains things

  • Upgrade installation will not work after replaced hard drive

    Have a HP machine that came with Vista. Bought an upgrade to Windows 7. Ran fine for several months. Then the hard drive failed. Installed a new hard drive. Partitioned and formatted. Windows 7 upgrade will not install. The only copy of Vista was on the hard drive crashed. A way to force the update to install. I have the license keys and the legal copies - simply nothing to install the first. Any help would be great.

    If your computer comes with a qualifying previous license such as Windows Vista or Windows XP and the certificate of authenticity is still attached to the machine in good condition, then the COST is reason enough to represent the compliance to the software license agreement. No previous required software installation, which means you can do a clean install with Windows 7 Upgrade disk.

    How to do a clean install with upgrade disc:

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD

    Click Install now

    Accept the license agreement

    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Click on drive Options

    Select the disc/s click on Delete

    Click new

    Click on apply

    Click OK

    Click Format, and then click next to proceed with the installation

    Skip entering your product key Windows 7 and complete the installation.

  • EliteBook 8640p does not start after replacing hard drive with a 128 GB crucial disc M4

    Hi all

    This morning I was not in box a new Elitebook 8640 p and instantly replaced the hard drive with a new 128 GB crucial disc M4.

    Machine installation installation clean Windows, restarted etc. I then installed the drivers, restarted etc. Have a windows index score and I was immediately impressed by the 7.9, but...

    The laptop won't start. Right after that the first portable screens it just stops at a black screen where it should show the logo "windows". I put the original hard drive in and the machine starts very well and I put the M4 in my office and it begins to start.

    It seems so the reader is fine and the laptop is fine, but the whole... Nope.

    Any suggestions?  (I want to send them both back after spending this money a lot of things should work like clockwork)

    Solution: It seems that Crucial screwed up again

  • Vista will not start after replacing the motherboard

    The motherboard in my Dell Vostro 220 died for the 2nd time, and this time it's out of warranty. Not wanting
    another cheap/defective board from Dell, I bought a compatible Intel replacement from Newegg. After I put
    the replacement board in, Vista won't boot. Dell didn't provide an actual Vista cd/dvd, but rather their generic
    repair/driver cd, so I can't just reinstall Vista (32bit). I understand that Vista may have problems with the new
    motherboard, but didn't realize it wouldn't give me better opportunity to load new drivers from cd that came
    with the motherboard. Am I just screwed and going to have to buy a new Windows cd/licence? The log below is
    what Windows is reporting:
    Problem Signatures1  Auto Failover2  6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.180003  64  1966115  Bad Driver6  Bad Driver7  08  19  System Restore10  0
    OS Version 6.0.6001.

    OK, thanks to a thread on DANIWEB here is the solution to my problem - Hiren BootCD (v15.1). MiniXP to start and run difficult HDD controller app. This allowed Vista to boot far enough to get the cd accompanying the motherboard. Later, life is good, Vista hasn't even complained on the new motherboard and licenses.

  • Windows Vista will not start after the automatic installation of the patch Ms.

    My Dell laptop does an automatic installation of the latest MS patches (12/08/10) and now he can't boot into windows.  All tests show that the material is fine, but an error at the end of the "bad update patch" said test results I can not even to go back to a previous restore point.  This happened to me the year last on my desk... same thing, but it's XP which could not start after an automatic update for the Member States.  Dell technical support told me that MS knows what is happening, but it is not supposed to be public knowledge.  I need to know if there is a fix, in addition to erase everything and do a complete reinstallation of the operating system.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.


    Restore point:

    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.



    If the system or Mode restore safe work not and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

  • Vista will not start after start or restart.

    Since last week, when I first start the computer, change user or log out or reboot, Vista does not start after the log in password stage (after accepting the password). I usually have to restart the computer twice so he could finally enter the Office of habit and I can work as usual.

    I tried to let the computer some time at this point to work through and start normally, but it does not work and I have to restart.

    I recently updated my anti-virus (BitDefender) for the 2010 edition.

    I don't know if is the recent update to Vista which is originally or not.

    Uninstall Bit Defender and see if that fixes things. Antivirus programs use low-level drivers which can sometimes cause problems. If the uninstallation of Bit Defender work, use a different antivirus. I recommend ESET NOD32 (commercial) or Avast free. If Bit Defender Uninstalling does not help, then you may experience hardware problems. Failing power supply or hard drive that often produces symptoms such as you describe.

    I am repairing a Satellite L300, which had a dead HARD drive. I replaced death 160 GB of HDD with a 500 GB WD, then used the recovery disks to install Windows Vista SP1 at the exit of the State of the box.

    Now, Windows update does not work, won't install autonomous not of Vista SP2 I downloaded, MS Security Essentials moved there also.
    Then I borrowed a 160 GB of work and went through the same process and everything works fine.

    To make it work with a 160 GB HARD drive, but not a 500 GB HARD drive. Why?

    > ... Standalone Vista SP2 I downloaded will not be installed
    Usually after installing recovery image, you have just to connect laptop to internet and after a short period of time, you will get messages about available Windows updates. Just install the offered updates process automatic Waterer and install important updates only.

    Let the system to install all the updates and don t force the installation of some own downloaded stuff.
    Last month I've updated HARD drive (320 GB I think) and installed Win7 on friends L300 and I didn't noticed any problem here.

    The only way to be sure is to open it up and see if the touchpad cable was disconnected during the upgrade of the hard drive. That's my bet. Easy to forget when you're winding. You don't provide complete model number, but many of the recent models Pavilion 17 require removal of the cover together to get hard disk that requires disconnection of the touchpad cable.

  • Satellite A300 Vista - will not start cd/DVD with backup

    Hello world

    I have a big problem with Toshiba a300. Windows Vista is not starts.

    Watch only the menu with 2 options: first "fix the system" - when I choose this option 10 seconds later I see messeage: click OK to turn off the computer.
    When I choose the second option in my laptop restart every time.

    I tried after turning on the computer, press F8, but all the option in this menu do NOT fix the problem.
    I have no CV/DVD to my computer.
    After the first time I don't burn DVD with backup.

    I have really now how can I install system with recovery patriction. What softwere I need and how do I do it?

    Thanks for help


    Sat A300 and other new models of laptops are equipped with HARD drive recovery option. This HARD drive recovery should allow you to recover the laptop without the use of all disks.
    In order to start the procedure for HARD drive recovery, you need to press F8. Then choose the first option called fix my computer. Then new window pops up and there you have to choose Toshiba HDD recovery. All that s.

    But if this procedure don't work (no matter why) then you will need to use the Toshiba recovery disc. If you n t create a floppy disk for recovery of a hand and the laptop will not start, then you will have to buy a drive for recovery of this page:

  • eMac stops almost immediately when starting after replacing HARD drive

    Hey all!

    I need to explain a bit for this one, so please bear with me. Thank you.

    Long story short, I've had a few eMacs for quite a while now and I recently found a use for them. I created a (it is running 10.4 with 1 GB of RAM and a > G4 processor at 1 GHz, can't remember) and used it for a while before randomly power loss and refused to stay on for more than a few minutes. I tried to replace the PMU battery with one of the other Mac and pressing the reset button, which leads to stop showing signs of life whatsoever (even after the replacement of the original battery).

    Thinking I had it bricked, I got out one of the other Mac with a plan to give the disk of death. This new Mac running 10.5, perfect with another > G4 processor at 1 GHz (but only 768 MB of RAM this time). The only quirk I noticed is the TRC took abnormally long to warm up, black time with only red but gradually more luminous and no longer red colors of departure. It was about normal 5 minutes after that OSX end of initialization. In any case, I went to swap out hard drives and put everything to the top, to see that yet again, this new Mac does not work!

    If it has been awhile since the last attempt to start the CRT will do its usual "bong" noise before machine clicks (sorta like a relay of power off) and nothing else happens. If I try again, the CRT is silent (no doubt he is already warm from the last attempt to start?) and you can hear two clicks - one that looks like something to turn it on, then turn it off even on front. These clicks are different lengths apart - usually, this is only a few seconds, but sometimes longer. There was a few times where the fans have started between clicks and I've even heard the startup chime on an attempt (which got me excited - but no, it clicked and distributed repressed). The CRT does not seem to do anything other than bonging from time to time (but it can turn on - I can't say because of the problem of the warm-up that I mentioned earlier).

    I would really like to be able to resurrect this old Mac once again - I have the vague feeling that I broke it when replacing the HARD drive. I'm pretty sure that I have not forgotten all the internal cables, and I tried not to touch anything other than the HARD drive and the enclosure of the logic board (ended up having to remove the blower housing too, however). Two Macs are model A1002 and both have serial numbers in the YM412xxxxxx - YM520xxxxxx range (eligible for repair program?). I don't know if they were actually taken repair back in the day.

    In any case, I hope you guys can help out me! Thanks in advance!

    (P.S the first eMac is well beyond repair. I have also a third one - it is better to go by replacing the HARD drive again? It is worth noting that the PMU battery has been sitting on my desk for a while now. "It was probably flat anyway).

    The HARD drive would be the problem? It seems that it is.

    See if you can just unplug the data cable from HARD drive and try to hold down the alt or option to the startup/power.
