Satellite U840W - disc cannot be displayed in disk part operating system does not start

Yesterday I tried to boot my laptop Toshiba Satellite U840W (PSU5XA-001006) and it came with no bootable device - please reboot

When I try to view the disc in the part of the disk, it cannot see that the USB key that I use to try to reinstall Win 8. In the setup of windows 8 I can't display the installation discs. I can't run the recovery because I don't have a recovery disk and repair does not work as it says that the disk is locked.

Don't know what I can do now, would be grateful for all those who had suggestions.


Of course, there is a problem with the internal HARD drive.
If it is not listed in the BIOS (BIOS first page) then the HARD drive died and that's why the system cannot be found.

I guess that in this case, there is only one solution: HARD drive needs to be replaced and the system must be installed again.

    Your CD or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs


    Burn a CD or DVD

    If your computer is equipped with a CD or DVD burner, you can copy files to a recordable disc. This process is called burning a disc. By default, Windows Burns discs in the active file system format, but you can also choose to burn discs in ISO image format.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 system does not start

    Hi people,
    I have the following problem. I used my laptop long enough for thet to deplete battery and the device to go into hibernation. Given the againm battery costs, I tried the system and now it does not start.
    The leds light up fine and stay lit upwards. Just nothing happens, the FN key works. After a minute the fan will start to turn upwards and turns down again. But nothing else.
    After some time, by pressing the power button for a few seconds seems to start the machine, but it stops immediately after 30 seconds. Even if doing a memtest.

    anyboy has any idea what could cause this. I tried to remove the hard disk and start it does not affect what anyone, as does move the RAM module in the other slot. Also remove the CD/RW drive does not affect it. Remove the battery and start also give the same result.


    Sorry, but tells you don't know is not enough for me.
    If you start Notepad, you see something on the screen?
    A Toshiba start screen appear?

    You suggested that the FN key works. Have you checked it in windows?
    AFAIK the FN keys can work only if the operating system has been launched and the drivers have been loaded. So my strange question.

    The whole thing is very strange. If nothing is displayed and the laptop cannot start, so I guess a hardware malfunction. But you know without any trial it s not easy to say what's wrong.

    Try to disconnect the laptop from the sector and remove the battery. Wait several times (30 min - 1 hour) then plug the AC adapter and try to start it.
    If it won't work and you know that other devices are ok such as RAM or HARD drive so I think that the technician must check the machine.

    If you remove / unplug the secondary HARD drive the PC gets stuck on the home screen?

    You can try to install W7 using this workaround solution.

  • Mac Disk Manager Pro 2009 does not start

    I have Mac Pro 4.1 2.93 Quad-cord. I look on the net for a solution to the question I had, without success. I recently updated my graphics card to an NVIDIA GTX 960. I connected through HDMI on my monitor. Now, with my old factory graphic card I could just hold the option key to bring up start between 10.11.3 OS and Windows 10 disk management. Now (with the new graphics card), when I take the key Option, it monitor does not turn. But I hear my Mac Pro work. If I let him start normally, without anything hold the monitor will stay a 'sleep' mode until load OSX.

    Could I get some ideas what could be the problem?

    Of course, it looks like you have a PC (not not flashed with Apple EFI).

    A card flashed not Apple will not display anything until loading drivers that is right in front of the login screen.

    This means that you can not use special startups as Option (Boot Manager) or recovery.

    A blue screen is suddenly pop up when I was surfing on a Web site, the warning above in black and white was shown after that I took the battery and restart windows.
    I thought it was just a simple step if I got the recovery disk, but I was wrong.

    The recovery procedure was very well finished 100%. But after pressing a button, the above kept warning appears, no matter how many times I had reinstalled by the recovery disc or (each time 100%) or by using the full version of Windows Xp.

    I excluded the problem with HD, so I guess maybe it's that the BIOS has been hacked (?) I downloaded the update of the BIOS to see if it works or not?

    Hello Wai

    If your device has trouble after that recovery image installation is probably hardware related issue. You can enter the settings of the BIOS as usual? If this isn't the case, I fear that the BIOS chip is damaged. It happen if BIOS update is interrupted shortly matter the reason may be.

    Removing the CMOS battery doesn t work like on desktps. Forget it!
