Satellite L300 and error recovery

Hi all

When you use the recovery disk I get the following error: HDD01 is missing.
The laptop was fine before recovery

See you soon



Love all here: _
If you are not able to recovery the laptop because your HDD recovery option doesn't work more or because you t n t have the recovery disc, then you have two options;

You order a new Toshiba Recovery disk, or you use the original Microsoft disc to reinstall the Windows operating system.
But there is little difference between the Toshiba recovery disc and the disc of Microsoft;
TOSHIBA disk contains all the tools and the driver Toshiba but MS disk contains only a Win OS and you will have to download and reinstall also the tools and the driver of Toshiba.

Good bye

    I can't start mode without failure or something like that. I have not upload anything recently or change anything. Just tried to start one day and got it. I have only the option of F2 or F12

    OK, so I used my restore disc and went through "windows is loading files" up to the end of and then Microsoft corporation. It is not even asking for the language. Then nothing. Black screen with white cursor. Nothing helps. The cursor moves when controlled with mouse pad, but that's all. I can't use ctrl + alt + del or something else to get out. Please can someone help me with this. I have some documents that I'd rather not see it go. Are there other options apart from resetting to the factory settings?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    > Are there other options apart from resetting to the factory settings?
    If I've understood your right to post you cannot install recovery image.
    What happens when you press F8 at startup? You can enter advanced startup options?

    If you have some important documents stored on the HARD drive and then connect as another external to the other PC then you can all copy them to the PC.

    What you can do?
    Try to get somewhere Microsoft installation disc to see if the same problem occurs again. If you will not be able to launch the installation of operating system with this disc of facilities I assume that HDD is troublemaker and you must test the features with the other.

    Maybe some friend of you has a 2.5 HDD so you can use it for testing purposes.

    In the end, I have to say that most strange thing in this whole thing, is that you cannot use same disc of recovery for the installation of the OS. For me it is the best proof that there must be some hardware problem.

  • Satellite L300 - Download the recovery disk?

    Hey there,

    can anyone help? I got a Satellite L300 and today I wanted to reset everything. So, I started a recovery of the product. Too bad I haven't checked the DVD before you start. It struck although I use it before. So recovery stopped in the middle of nowwhere. I can't complete recovery - I can't launch computer - and I can't copy the disc on another computer (tried of course).

    Is there a site where I can download a disk image of the recovery of product anywhere?

    Thank you!

    Hey horst,.

    You can download t the Toshiba Recovery disk, but you can order a new one by clicking here:

    By the way: If the operating system preinstalled by Toshiba is still installed you can also use HARD drive recovery option. So go to the advanced boot menu and select Repair my computer. After that, you have factory again and you can create a new recovery disk.
    But remember: it is only possible on preinstalled OS. I guess it is Vista?

  • Satellite L300 - deleted file recovery

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite L300 and by mistake I deleted the HARD drive recovery folder located in the E partition, now I can't do my system restore in case something goes wrong. I wonder how do I reinstall HARD drive recovery disk creator.


    If you deleted the folder in HARD drive recovery you can t create a recovery disk more.
    Also, you are not able to reinstall Windows without disc.

    Reinstall the Toshiba recovery disc creator will not solve this problem. It is only the program doesn t contain recovery files.

    So in your case, you need a recovery disk. You can get one from a local ASP or you buy a new Toshiba here directly:

  • Satellite L300-EZ1502 - error writing to CD/DVD

    I have a Satellite L300-EZ1502 with Windows Vista ultimate. He has a stack of UJ-880AS * a DVD-RAM.

    Whenever I try to write a CD or DVD, there is, a mistake in the middle and the judgments of CD/DVD writing. I had to throw away dozens of CDs and DVDs because of this error. I tried different types of CD/DVD as Philips-DMS-Princo-Benq, but I got a write error. Sometimes it ends successfully, but do not know why the reason.

    I searched for the driver, but it is correct and working properly. I took the laptop to the official service, but they say he doesn't love all types of CD and nothing to to that.

    Have you ever imagined such a problem. You have a solution?


    In my opinion it s correct that not every disc is compatible with all brands of disc. I had the same experience and so I always use DVD - R Verbatim or TDK discs. Never had any problems with both types. Check this box!

    I recommend also to delete upper and lower filters in the registry. Just follow this work around Microsoft:

  • Satellite L300-1AS - error PXE - boot error - will not boot from USB

    Startup error - error PXE-L300 1AS - will not boot from USB

    I recently bought a new HD to replace the original that my laptop takes an hour to load.

    I put the new drive hard at in the BIOS setting, I chose to boot from USB... USB is recognized as it appears on the screen of the BIOS. I disabled the LAN option as it gives me PXE error... I think that the USB files are not read. as I handed the old HD and attached to boot from USB but it just goes to the start screen.

    I thought that perhaps I bought the wrong HD, but a new appeared on the BIOS setting... I'm a bit confused and would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction...

    Any help or advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    New HARD drive has nothing to do with it. Problem must be your USB key.
    In your ad you didn t wrote what is on it, and we don t know if USB can operate as boot device or not.

    I put t know what OS you want to install right now but original recovery DVDs or use Microsoft installation disc and install Win7 32 bit. I ve installed on friends L300 and it works perfectly.

  • Satellite L300 and WXP - driver Webcam open fail


    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite L300 with no OS installed. I managed to install windows XP and all the sounds/videos... drivers successfully, but after installing the driver for the webcam appears an error that says: Webcam driver open fail. Please restart camera or computer.

    I rebooted the computer several times, but it still does not work. Please help me.

    Hi, I'm having a similar problem (see previous thread), you can actually see the webcam in Device Manager? There is also a known issue if it's just the driver, do a search on this forum, it seems to be a common problem.

    Kind regards


  • Re: Satellite A500 - Windows error recovery

    I have a problem with my laptop

    When I restart my laptop, it tends to be stuck on this windows error recovery screen. It gives me two options
    (1) Lauch Startup Repair
    (2) start Windows normally

    Tried both, it turns off, reboots that it ends on the same screen over and over again. Tried to access it via safe mode, nothing helps. tried to fix it through windows disk 7, did not work. tried last good configuration, not good either.

    It's the screen that I always end up and it does not go further.

    Please can someone show me a few guidelines as to how can I do to fix this problem. I'm a freshman in College, I have no money to take it to a professional. That's why I try to fix it myself as I have urgent need.

    Thank you in advance.


    Hmm, not easy, but in my opinion it s something wrong with properly installed Windows OS and HDD recovery doesn't work

    You have the Toshiba Recovery disk?
    If Yes, you can use it to restore the original settings windows. Just boot from that disk and follow the instructions on the screen, everything that s! :)

  • Written by Satellite L300 and DVD


    I want to ask how to put in place the DVD for best performance (Satellite L300 (PS *)).

    This laptop has the factorial DVD player, but when I want to read a DVD entirely, it required 1 hour...

    Yesterday I tried to write a DVD with Nero 6, and full time operation (with write/verification) is 02:20.
    It's horrible. In my corp DVD, writing is max 30 minutes...

    The OS is WinXP SP3, Nero is 6.0.x.

    What driver I need to sign up or anything I need to reconfigure to make effective DVD read/write this machine?

    Thanks for your IDEA of all.



    First of all for a CD/DVD drive, you don't need a driver. It s a part of the operating system (Windows).

    It is already an available update Nero 6.0.x. Please visit [] and install the latest update. As far as I know the latest version is

  • Satellite L300 and high temperature - is this normal?


    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite L300 - 11 (Intel celeron 550), I\m kind new to laptops, and I realize it's too hot. I used the CPUID hardware monitor software, and it shows that:
    -ACPI THRM temperatures going as high as 63c (145f)
    -the processor is going up to 65 c (148f)
    -the HARD disk goes up to 45 c (112f)

    My questions are: is this normal for a laptop to reach these temperatures? I mean the touchpad and the area around it is annoyingly hot all the time (especially in the summer time where its already hot weather)
    Other models or brands have similar temperatures?

    And is it a Toshiba tool to monitor temperatures, rather than using third-party software?

    Thanks for any help.

    I don't know much about the temperature of the Celeron processor.

    My Toshiba L300 came with Hitachi 120 GB HDD, CPU T2370 upgraded to T7100:
    -HDD: max: 45 (watching ripped DVD on hard disk), 30 min (surf the internet, play warcraft III), average: 38 (using Microsoft, Photoshop and programming tools)
    -CPU: 43 to 57, penalty going up to 63.
    -ACPI: Min: Max: 43: 56

    Hope that these figures will give you some tips.

  • Screen flickers on Satellite L300 and I am unable to create a recovery disk

    Hi all

    I just bought a model L300 PSLB0C 08R08C number.
    I was unable to create a recovery disk, I was getting an error message saying it cannot create disk because it is scratched or has dirt on it, I lost 5 nine DVD.

    I am went to the store and replaced by another unit, but had the same problem (I have not tried a different brand of DVD well)

    Second issue with this device, the screen flashes once whenever it is in a shutdown state.
    Number 3, the wireless card disappears from the Device Manager, until I restart.
    Laptop made in China ;-)

    Any suggestions are much apprecaited


    It is indeed strange that you were unable to create a recovery disk, and that the problem has resurfaced, even after permutation of the laptop with another unit of the store. However, if you have not tried a different brand of DVD so I suggest that if the laptop asks the disc is scratched or has dirt on it. I'm not sure if toshiba factory in fact blank DVDs, but if they do, it would be a starting point, as one would expect hardware toshiba would happily work with their own brand DVD media. However, if you can't find toshiba dvd then use another trust mark, for example, Imation and TDK. with my experience, I have tried many brands of DVD and have found very reliable TDK.

    regarding the second question, this may be related to the graphics card in the system, or could be due to the performance of the computer laptop itself. Check that you have the latest driver for your graphics card and all the settings on the computer are optimized / hard drives are defragmented and deleted unnecessary files. with your third question, this question could also be related to driver problems, check your regional drivers toshiba site for the latest drivers again. failing this, I would back up your data and then restore to a factory condition, then install the drivers immediately. I hope this info can help you somehow.

  • Satellite A300 - displays error recovery disc creator


    I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCE) and I created the recovery by using the "TOSHIBA Recovery Disc Creator' disc but I did this a few months ago, but now the disc is scratched, and when I am formatting my computer it gives me an error when loading files. So I decided to create another disc, using the "TOSHIBA Recovery Disc Creator', but she also give me an error with one of the files during the creation of the disc. What should I do now?

    I have a friend who has a Satellite A200, can I use the disk? I did a printscrean showing the error. Sorry the bad English, I'm Portuguese...
    [ |]


    It is good that you posted a screenshot of the error, but perhaps you can translate it into English, it would be more useful.

    In any case, the disks that you use to create the recovery disk? I m using Verbatim DVD-R media. It worked perfectly for me and I can recommend this path.

    In addition, you can see the Toshiba page for an update of the firmware of your CD/DVD drive.

    Finally and above all, I doubt that for Satellite A200 recovery disk will work for you also. The models are different
