Satellite A30 - shuts down during the installation of recovery or FDISK

I have a Satellite A30 and I wanted all off it delete and start from scratch.

Turned back with disc 1 CD product recovery, started well I was prompted to insert disk 2, it does well to about 80% then erased screen, then got the message "invalid partition table". I tried again and same thing happened. Connected FDISK back and chose option 1. 'create a DOS Partition or logic back drive' and the laptop stops. I put the startup option for no network or HARD drive CD player. At startup without inserted discs, I get the following. PXE - E61 madia tset failure, check cable.
PXE - m0f: exit PXE ROM then freezes.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm not sure at 100%, but from your description, I think that HARD drive get in trouble.
How pxe message shows that means laptop can not find device bootable and as last it will boot from LAN.

If possible, try to get a new HARD drive and check if the recovery procedure completes successfully. Old IDE hard drives are not more expensive. To test you can also use a used purposes, but of course has no HDD vice.

  • Satellite L450D-113 - error during the installation of recovery (part 2 of 7)


    I bought a new laptop of toshiba 1 year ago and had no problems so far. My laptop started to slow down, becoming a reagent and the fan is constantly. then my laptop decided to crash and I have to restart. When he turned on it will not let me connect, I left for days now and I tried several times but without success. I asked several friends and it professionals to take a look, but none has the answer.

    I took the advice of some of them and decided to try to restore my laptop with the provideddisk. It erases the hard drive very well, but when it get to the part where it starts to install the operating system it happens to part 2 of 7 and then comes back with the error cannot find file to copy. I don't know what file it is because it does not specify, but after I pressed the space bar as he said the screen turns off. I left like that for hours to see if something happens, but I finally turn off.

    I think it could be the drive but I don't see how because it is new and has not been used before. Just in case it's the discs, I tried how to get another but could not find the option on the Toshiba site.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated



    Theoretically, it could be a malfunction of the recovery disc you've already written but I don't know until now, I never had a problem with the recovery disk so that I can t m say many things about it.

    In any case, try to clean the disc using a microfibre cloth and the lens of the CD/DVD drive. Maybe the disc can t be read due to dust a little then it s worth a try. ;)

    If this isn't the case, you can test the Windows installation with a common Microsoft Windows disk. All the drivers and tools are placed on the Toshiba page and can be downloaded for free. Of course, that it takes a little more time and it of more complicated than recovery disk, but it s an option.

    Finally and above all the recovery disk, which you can order here:

  • Satellite L355D-S7825 - hangs during the installation of recovery

    My laptop girls. She asked me to restore the computer to factory settings. It is running Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I tried the restore disks 4 times now to pretty much the same results. It will get all the way to the "application final Configuration where it installs the user manual and the office links and then it's there. After reading several posts here with the same problem, I decided to let it sit all night. This morning it had expired. I clicked on the button of the mouse to wake him up. It passes to the logon screen. It shows login Admin and says that the account has been locked, please contact your system administrator. How can this be? It won't let me! My only choice is to restart the system. After the reboot, it displays the screen of the AFC and reinstalls the two same files manual user and links and then it's there.

    I can minimize the screen of the AFC I did and then I changed the power settings to never expire. I have the WiFi off button as requested by AFC screen, as it will not be installed file links with WiFi turned on and the user manual. I don't know what else to do.

    Anyone has any ideas on this? What would you say if I was totally format the HD and then try to restore? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Poppi,

    What you mean with screen AFC?

    Well, if recovery installation doesn't work properly, it s hardware malfunction or the disk recovery...

    You can install Windows from a normal Microsoft drive correctly?

  • Satellite A80 - 49 error during the installation of recovery code


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A80. The computer crashed. I inserted the Windows recovery disc and error #49 with writing problem appeared.

    I wonder what wrong with my laptop. What is a hard drive problem?
    Can someone help me?

    Thank you.

    Hi ClementLo,

    > error #49 with writing problem appeared.
    I put t know when you get exactly this message but theoretically, it might be a problem with the HARD drive. Perhaps he has bad sectors and must be replaced

    Can you also test the same using a disc of Microsoft? Maybe the disc is scratched

  • Satellite Pro A10 stops during the installation of Windows

    I have a satellite Pro A10, which stops during the installation of Windows. The installation gets to the part where I need to select the HARD drive to install, then the system off just. I can restart it immediately, and the sdame happens.

    If I enter the BIOS, everything is detected OK, and I've updated to the latest version (V1.4). Also when in the BIOS, the system will remain under tension for ever and a day! and no downtime. I have a couple of diagnostic CD, then run the tests is the same thing, but I ran the seagate diagnostic tool and the HDD OK passes, as does the main map, but cannot perform detailed testing that the system shuts down during the tests.

    I suspect an overheating issue but would like advice.

    Hmmm it s very strange. I thought that the HARD drive could malfunctions but it of very impossible if the HARD drive has passed the Seagate diagnostic test.

    However, it would be very interesting to know if the installation of the OS would end with another HARD drive.
    You know, it of always difficult to provide an exact solution without any diagnostic tests.

    For me, it really looks like a hardware malfunction. So perhaps it would be advisable to contact the authorized Toshiba maintainer for a control of the laptop.
    Guys could run tests and would situate the fault quickly.

  • During the installation of recovery that it off

    I recently baught a new laptop computer from a friend and I so wanted to restore factory settings. I inserted the disc and went through the adjustment, and he began to restore. At halfway through the process of close to 50% turns off/on overheating. It tells me to insert the disc starts, which I did not, and now I don't know what to do because it does not start without it.

    What can I do and where can Iget a new?

    Please answer ([email protected])

    Thank you!!


    I think the solution to this problem is quite easy. If the computer turns off during the installation of recovery you need to do this installation once again, I think that because some files are missing, etc.

    Then boot from the recovery disc and try again.

    By the way: it would be interesting to know which laptop, you have exactly. If it overheat, try to clean it using the jet of compressed air. ;)

  • Satellite A30 shuts down suddenly

    Toshiba Satellite A30-504, connected to the power adapter and with fully charged battery, turns off suddenly while I was reading something on the internet. I tried to turn it on, but she did not respond, and I thought that his mother might have broken down. As by chance, I saw the battery light flashes red for a few seconds, I took the battery of the laptop and left just with the AC adapter. It's on!

    When I put the battery, it turn on, but the battery was suddenly + blank +!

    He accused now and everything is working well, the laptop runs without the adapter sector is plugged in, but can someone tell me what is the thing that's happened? The problem is perhaps not in the battery but in something else? I don't think it was overheated because it came on after I took out the battery and I continued to work for hours after the incident... Thank you.

    > He accused now and everything is working well, the laptop runs without the adapter sector is plugged in, but can someone tell me what is the thing that's happened. The problem is perhaps not in the battery but in something else?

    I think that no one will be able to tell why this happened. Maybe there is a problem of short with electronic power supply to the Board of directors who knows I think that only a technician of the laptop could provide a response after the laptop has been verified.

    But the most important is that your laptop works fine now.

  • Satellite M70 - black screen after the installation of recovery

    So far, what I did is put in the Recovery DVD - ROM product. Then when my computer restarts I was invited to restore my computer failing and said. After that he went through this process, that he told me to remove the disc that I did. Now he only get a black screen after the Toshiba screen that gives me options f2 for Setup and f12 for options.

    I don't know what to do now to make my laptop works again. Help, please.

    Hi Zach_1,

    Have you tried to launch the installation of recovery again? Maybe that something was wrong during the first installation, it might have arrived
    Then retry the recovery facility and see what happens.

    If it doesn't work you should try a normal Microsoft disk so determine if the problem is related to hardware or recovery disk.

  • Satellite P100-119 - software after the installation of recovery

    I use a Toshiba Satellite P100-119 since 2006. I want to run the original liveries Product Recovery CD after you back up all my data, so that with a vacuum system, the laptop gets even faster.

    But as there were pre-installed software (office, Toshiba programms) when I bought it, I don't know if they went after the recovery. I do not have CD for these programs, they were just pre-installed and what my Windows xp, should recover fully with the cd?

    Hey Buddy,

    After the installation of recovery, you have the same settings that bought the laptop. With other words recovery disk will restore the box settings.

    Firstly the recovery disk will wipe the entire HARD drive and remove all. After this Windows will be installed all the drivers and tools. In addition, will be also installed software preinstalled such as office, etc. and you can use it again. :)

    Backup all important data like the photo, music, etc. but everything will be removed for a clean install of Windows.

  • Satellite A30 shuts down / blocks

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A30 for about 2 years with no problems. Until today...

    I was chatting on MSN Messenger, but had to put my missing status and left the computer for about an hour.

    When I came back to it, the screen was all what it was when I left, but there was no control of the mouse, no whirring HARD drive away, not nothing. In fact, it seemed that he had closed the partitally without turning off the screen.

    The only way I could reboot had to turn off the power. I disconnected the battery, reconnected everything and tried to reload. I don't even have as much as Logo of Toshiba screen, click on the HARD drive, * which is normal for this machine * and off.

    I thought that maybe it was an overheating issue, then I left for half an hour and go home. This time it restarts, but the display was all out of sync. was on 800 x 600 when its usually on the following resolution. (Don't remember who he is). I ran dxdiag and he told me that there is no present display driver, as I had reloaded using the last well known record. It was not a problem, I reinstalled drivers, restarted without any problem.

    Everything was fine for 2 h with the laptop, so at this point, I don't think it was a heat issue. I went through the net, when hung just computer still once, I lost all control of the mouse, even if the optical lights on it were always activate when moved, and he seemed to stop again.

    Well, I left for 10 minutes, he came back and tried again, it started ok, but as soon as I tried to access anything, he hung up again, forcing me to press the power button to shut down.

    Sorry for the lengthy post, but can anyone shed light on this point, I use my laptop on a daily basis, and there are things about it, as I need to access.

    I hope someone can help

    Thank you



    It is very interesting because it can happen to anyone. I really put t know which can block the laptop. On this way, we can only speculate and it is really not easy to say why this happens to concrete.

    I put t know how is your unit configured and that these (process) applications run in the background, but you can try to stop all the unnecessary stuff and see what is happening in this case. Check the Device Manager and make sure that everything is properly recognized. After that create a system restore point and in this way you can restore the system to an earlier time if something goes wrong.

    If you do not find what happens I recommend you back up the data and do the recovery procedure. On this way the unit will be own pre-installed and things like this can happen. As you know sometimes happen oddities and there is no logical explanation.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite M645-S4055: Disconnections during the installation of Windows XP

    Hello everyone

    I want to install Windows XP Professional on my laptop Satellite M645 S4055 but fail to do so. During the initial installation, it gives blue screen.

    Currently, Windows 7 Professional installed.

    I've upgraded BIOS 1.90 version also available on the toshiba Web site.

    Please give me a solution.


    I imagine that you didn t include the driver to CD Win XP SATA.
    The point is that Win XP needs an extra SATA driver in order to be able to recognize the HARD drive that is connected to the SATA controller.

    Here's a nice Support Toshiba Europe basic knowledge FAQ:

    You should check your chipset and download the Intel Storage Manager driver on Intel page that would support your chipset.

  • Apple music shuts down during the passage of the songs with Beats

    Well, then it is obviously a problem with iOS 9.2, because it has not fixed the beta 9.2, and it wasn't a problem with iOS 9.1. Last night, I upgraded my iPad and my iPhone iOS 9.2. I own a pair of Beats Studio Headphones Wireless. Every time I play a piece of music from Apple, and I want songs in the middle of a song, if I don't pause, the song plays for half a second, then shuts down and disconnects from my helmet. I also noticed this problem very rarely in the iOS 9.1, but it was only music app to another app with the sound, not just in changing songs. Please help me because it's very annoying to have to turn off my helmet and again between each song. Also, sometimes it glitches and getting a continuous noise on a song and I have to reboot my device. If there is a patch for that soon it would be much appreciated.

    I had the same problem. I plugged my Wireless Studio Beats and checked my firmware using Updater bat and found out there was a (2.1.8) update. After you have installed and (importantly) not matching and rematching the beats of my iPhone, Apple music was working normally again, and I was getting disconnected when changing tracks more. Hope this works for you also.

  • Satellite L450D - 11G - hangs after the installation of recovery

    The recovery disc provided does not work. After you install all the files, it goes into a boot loop with "installing Windows for the first time, through 'Please wait', for flashing to the top of the home screen and then stop and restart.

    Is there any solution for this?

    Hey Buddy,

    You must wait a few minutes. On my laptop Satellite and Windows 7, I had the same problem. Windows will be reinstalled several times until the installation is complete and you will always see the same screen.

    Don t so worry about this. Everything is ok with your laptop! :)
