Satellite A300-288 does not load the operating system

Hello everyone.

Today I turned on my laptop A300 and does not load the operating system. In other words, Toshiba logo appears, the message "Press F2 to enter SETUP", but not in continuity with the boot. Yesterday it worked and did not update the BIOS or something else.

Someone has an idea? I deleted a both SDRAM and vice versa, to check that the problem wasn't RAM, but no. There is no beep. LED touch 'NumLock' and other, power on and off when I have impulses, so the keyboard responding but by pressing F2 or F12 does nothing.

Thank you very much for your help.


Start your laptop with F8 and test if you can start the operating system in safe mode.

  • Satellite A300 PSAG8E does not load

    I have a Toshiba Satalite A300 PSAG8E, which does not load.
    I was given a few days ago by a person stating that he is not working or light - vague details.

    At the reception that he turned on, asked to start windows normally or not, then started absolutely perfect, it powered by the charger, no problem.

    I let him on during some time different tasks.
    I came to him a few days later to find that he had himself set to off.

    I enabled again, how he asked to start windows normally or not. I started normally, and it came on the property.
    Since then I could not to power it on the sector.

    Why not load it now?

    Hi mate

    > Since I could not to power it on the sector.
    > Why didn't he care now?

    I m a bit but confused. What's wrong now? You are not able to feed the device or battery is not charging?

    If you are not able to turn on the unit, then you should try this:
    -Disconnect the battery and AC adapter
    -wait a while (2-3 hours)
    -connect the two parties to laptop and check again

    If your battery does not load:
    Try to update the BIOS and set its default value
    If that does not help, then the battery should be checked
    If the new battery does not solve the problem, then the motherboard must be checked and replaced if necessary.

    Hi all.

    My friend has a laptop Satellite A300-1MC that no longer works. When the laptop is on, it indicates that the hal file is missing. I know that we need to buy the recovery cd, since she did not have one when she bought the laptop.

    Can someone direct me to the Toshiba site, where you can buy these recovery CD since then?

    If not, can someone give me the phone number of support Toshiba UK.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Satellite A300-1J1 - does not recognize the CD key

    Hi all, after 3 days of searching for any type of information I've found this site and I hope that someone can help me.

    I have a Satellite A300-1J1, and had to do a complete reinstall of Windows using my recovery disk that was provided with the laptop (Vista Home Premium).
    In any case, the installation went well and he had restarted and said I had to activate Windows is not a problem, I thought looked under laptop for key typed in there and it will not recognize the CD as being for Vista Premium key. Now how is that possible that the disc that came with the laptop and the CD key is there?

    Any help is greatly appreciated


    Hello Shaun

    I know it may seem stupid now, but your story is somewhat strange. Why?
    To the first Satellite A300 laptop computers are never shipped with recovery DVDs. Recovery DVDs must be created by the owner of the laptop. All A300 laptop come with what is called HARD disk image. AFAIK some A300 laptop computers come with an additional CD/DVD but it is recovery of Windows XP Home or Vista 64-bit edition, but laptop always comes with Vista Home Premium 32 - bit (recovery of HARD drive image).

    So the question is what installation media you are using exactly? Is - this support recovery, that you created yourself or a version of Microsoft?
    Original Toshiba recovery image is created for each laptop model separately and should not be enabled.

    Recovery image can not be downloaded. If you want to have another copy, you must order it under

  • Satellite R830-143 - update of the BIOS does not support this operating system


    I received a notification via Tempro that he did not have a BIOS upgrade. I downloaded the ZIP file (bios -, extract the package (BIOS360_EC140_WIN.exe) and ran it according to the instructions.

    The package runs, give the progress bar "extract files...". ", then displays a dialogue entitled"TOSHIBA BIOS package Ver.4.1.2"that says:"this package BIOS does not support this operating system."

    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit on a Satellite 830R-143 with the short part No. PT32LE

    Does anyone know what is the problem?

    Thanks in advance for your help...


    You have problems with the laptop?
    If not then why you want to do the BIOS? Just because the new BIOS is released?
    I would not change anything if my laptop is running correctly.

    However, the update of the BIOS requires the VAP (value added package).
    So remember that this PPV is installed correctly. If this isn't the case, so far.

    26 of Firefox does not load the home page. Instead, it load the previous session, regardless of what has been entered in 'Options '. The browser runs in Win 7.0 64 bit; Norton Internet Suite 21 provides security features. There are some solutions 'cloud', also running as Google Drive, box, Skydrive and Cubby. The browser behaves in the same way in all my machines (installation and the OS is similar to that described above) and no amount of reset 'Options' seems to affect it.
