Satellite C650D is not booting from the CD

My mother has a Toshiba Satellite C650D and password protect the hard disk. She forgot the HARD drive password today! I want to format the drive and reinstall Windows. I changed the boot sequence in the BIOS to boot from the CD drive and I like it start I press F12, but it goes directly to the HARD drive password screen. I change the setting to prevent fast boot but still no change.

The only way I can boot from the CD is to remove the HARD drive.

Are there any other settings that I can change to make it boot from the CD?


I'm afraid there is nothing you can do about Mr. check please follow the documents:

    Hi dynamitenews


    1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
    2. what happens when you try to start the computer?


    You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

    Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-

    If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

    Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.


    I hope this helps.

  • NB100 will not boot from the XP CD in the external USB CD/DVD drive

    I try to install XP Home in my NB100
    The netbook still refuses to boot from the XP CD. It's just not more
    Returns the current operating system (Ubuntu) or give the error "Could not find NTLDR" dreaded.
    And yet - it will boot from an Ubuntu Live CD disk perfectly fine, AND
    If I connect this external hard drive on my computer Windows 7, (another Toshiba
    Portable satellite) that the machine starts quite successfully since the XP CD
    in the same external drive!

    Can anyone throw any light on what is happening on Earth on?


    There are various reasons why this error message:
    In most cases this error because the laptop is trying to boot from a HARD drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly. Maybe the drive is not bootable or not compatible.

    It would also be possible that some sectors on the HARD disk, HARD drive failures are corrupt or BIOS is damaged. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is damaged.

    In your case I recommend that you format the first HARD drive before booting from the hard drive CD7DVD external using Win XP CD.

    By the way: you must add SATA driver to CD Win XP using nLite.
    The SATA driver is placed on the European driver Toshiba page in the Intel Storage Manager

    The SATA driver is needed to recognize the HDD by Win XP!

  • Can not boot from the CD to recover OS - Portege M200


    I'm working on my Portege M200 friends that she bought used. Only, it came with an external USB CDROM drive and the laptop computer AC adapter. To make things better the HD is no longer recognized by the BIOS. I had a spare HD so I installed it and now the BIOS see the new HD, Yay!

    I also discovered that I could buy a replacement Toshiba system recovery CD, new Yay! But before I do that I wanted to make sure I could boot from the external CDROM drive. I plugged the CDROM drive and attempted to start on a spare windows xp CD. But it does not start on the CD. I made sure that the CD-rom drive has been first in the BIOS boot priority, but that doesn't seem to work.

    I read the other posts that mention the boot directly from the external CD-rom USB drive does not work and I have to boot to the CD-rom drive by plugging the CD-rom drive in a PCMCIA card. If I have to buy a PCMCIA card that has USB ports for connecting external USB CDROM drive in for I can boot from a CD?

    If there will be any brand/type of work? If this is not the case, what brand/type is known to work.
    Any advise will be greatly appreciated!

    BIOS of the portege recognise only a limited number of pcmcia-CD-disks

    in this thread you will find all the information you need:𑘋

    but your portege also boots most of the readers of usb_FDD; If you make a BACK-boot disk with the appropriate drivers for your CD-ROM usb drive you can use it without restrictions bios

    as you can read that this method will work only in a DOS environment, that is why it is absolutely necessary to format your hard drive to fat32, otherwise it will not be recognized

  • Z575 will not boot from the hard drive or restore DVD

    Need help on a laptop Z575 age of 2 years that immediately after an automatic update of windows, will not start either from the hard disk or restore DVDs (blue screen). Does not start in safe mode, not booting from a rescue of third party DVD. Attempt to start, it will show you the ability to start the Startup Repair tool. Repair shows that it is unable to fix with the detail following problem error messages:
    Signature of the problem 1: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of problem 2: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of the problem 3: unknown
    Signature of the 4:21200196 problem
    Signature problem 5: auto failover
    Signature of the problem 6:7
    Signature of the 7 problem: bad driver
    OS version: 6.1.7601.

    Normally think that the hard drive has failed or that windows update caused a software problem, but the inability to boot from any restore disk that makes me think that there is another serious problem with the hardware of the laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated. THX

    Additional note: when you try to boot from a restore disc, blue screen, error message:
    Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    It is a hardware failure that cannot be restarted soft.

    I also removed the hard drive and RAM, reinstalled and rebooted, no change.

    Additional note: I was able to access the hard drive with a recovery of old program, focused on the (SpaceFM) ram charged through the DVD player. Hard drive data appears intact. Still does not start from the hard disk or a DVD of windows system.

    Thank you. Rather than buying a 4 GB or more large key USB comes from put this into hard drive replacement. Installed correctly, boots very well now. No other error of the optical drive... and no explanation I can see, but that's it.

    Unless something else pops up we'll just call cela a HARD drive failed after 2 years of common use. Thanks again.

  • Windows 7 for Lenovo G50-70 - the computer will not boot from the CD

    Hello world

    I hope that someone here will be able to help

    I bought a new laptop with Windows 8.1. I want to install Windows 7 on that I know well because I can't use the new windows. I changed the settings in the BIOS to get the machine to boot from the CD, but it won't be fair. I also tried to restore the system to boot from the CD, but it installs just the Windows pre-installed, new instead. Also, I can't access the CD from the drive while all my other computers are capable of (what is strange)

    Can someone help, please?

    See you soon

    PS. : I can turn on the computer through the small "boot botton" on the side and select the DVD drive to boot from. But this is not followed by the message "Press any key to boot from CD" and the computer starts just W8 yet;

    I contacted customer service and followed your advice. They refused to help him on the ground that there nothing wrong with the machine in their opinion, and since I wanted to change operating system. All preinstalled spyprogrammes Lenovo has been erased with this downgrade. So far, I've owned a laptop computer brand new and expensive for a year I used only to waste my time, trying to make it work, that was not why I bought it in the first place. What a RIP-OFF!

  • Vista 64 does not start after the bios screen. Can not boot from the recovery cd or help

    Last night a MS pushed a windows update and my pc restarted automatically.  But it does not actually restart.

    The PC goes through the bios tests, passes and then crashes and does not start in Vista.

    I can't start at all, including safe mode.

    I can't the system recovery option in HP bios to load.  Can I only use my Vista64 system recovery bootable cd or actually start.

    First of all, I thought it was a HARD drive problem, but tests of the bios disk hard that all spend, even the 2 hours 'SMART' test that he was running.



    What happens when you try to boot from the recovery CD? You receive messages or error codes?

  • Can not boot from the recovery disc - 0x000000D1 Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_Equal

    original title: cannot boot from the Vista recovery disc

    A real problem. Vista is prompting me to boot from my recovery disc and allow the repair of Windows. However, when I insert the disk it shows loading Windows, but once he starts to launch I get the BSOd with the "Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_Equal" error report with the error code Stop 0x000000D1. I searched on advice but all I can get into the repair mode, but I can't. F8 does not work in safe mode. Week last ChkDisc has run on every start and yesterday I received a number of parts of Vista won't load does not with error reports. Today, it started with Windows can not load the warning and instructions for use the recovery disk... I'm in a loop as I cannot cross the BSOD! Help please


    Computers are strange animals. After my response to you, I had another attempt to go beyond the blue screen. Hey hop this time my computer decided that he had enough rest and proceeded without delay to start and I would like to action, the recovery disk. There then reinstall Windows Vista and am now to a new computer! It's time to move to Windows 7! The only thing I did yesterday was to unplug my printer to my laptop!

  • Tecra M3 PTM30A will not boot from the cd to reinstall windows

    Hi all

    Totally new here and I have a question. I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died.
    I set the bios to boot from the cd. He reads the Windows XP cd for a minute then jump to trying to boot on the network adapter.

    Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?
    If it can boot from a normal cd is the stuffed ROM or am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help you.


    > I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died

    Your new hard drive is recognized by the Bios?

    > Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?

    You can use a recovery (if available) disk or Windows disk copy. In the Bios, you must set the Cd/DVD-ROM as 1st boot device and press F10 save and exit. Turn it back on. Thus, your computer you should start the installation of the Cd drive.

  • Satellite A105 does not start from the CD Rom

    Today WinXP fall & I decide to reinstall.
    I change in the Bios to boot to the cd-rom first.
    But she continue to start the hard drive first. I don't know what to do, because I don't Win & I can't boot from any device except the HARD drive.

    Any body can help me? Can be extracted bios battary motherboard...


    If you want to boot from the CD Rom, then a bootable Windows CD must be inserted in the first place.

    Immediately after starting the laptop, press the F12 key.
    This should allow the start on-screen menu then you could choose the ODD (CD/DVD drive) and the laptop should boot from the drive.

    Good bye

  • can not boot from the CD

    I have a Dimension 8300 running XP Pro and I am trying to reformat the hard drive and reinstall XP.  I can't boot from the CD.  At startup after F12 and selected to boot from the CD, the sytem always starts on the hard drive. I changed the BIOS boot sequence, but still no luck.  The works of CD to read and write, but no boot from the OS disk.  Once the system boots from the hard drive I can start the CD of the OS that gives me the ability to reinstall XP, but no option to reformat.  My top disc is a DVD-ROM and the second disc is a CD - R.  I tried to boot from both drives, but the machine continues to boot from the hard drive.  Any suggestions?

  • Satellite A200 - 19L can not boot from the CD

    Hi guys,.

    I'm glad I found this forum site, I pretty well hope to find a solution here.

    Well, this problem is not very complicated, in fact my DVD player (model TS-L632) is not read more, so much so I decided to change with a new one, but it is not the same model as the original drive.
    It is the case of the generic DVD player really.

    Now when I inserted my recovery disk or any bootable disk is not booting the CD, and when I press F12 for I can't find any CD/DVD drive, but running in Windows I can't find the DVD player and it can read any CD priority boot normally.

    Just having the problem while booting from CD.
    I thought that maybe there is no security for this model that locked some hardware.
    So please guys want to help me how to understand it,

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    > When I press F12 for boot priority I can't find any CD/DVD drive, but running in Windows I can find the DVD player and it can normally read any CD.

    The whole story seems really strange to me
    If you access the BIOS, you can see the details of the CD/DVD drive? The drive is recognized properly?

    If not then I guess that the STRANGE inserted is not totally compatible due to different master/slave/c-salt settings.

    > but running in Windows I can find the DVD player and it can normally read any CD
    It s also strange to me so that the CD/DVD drive appears in Device Manager even if the CD/DVD drive Startup menu option does not appear.

    But first check the BIOS
