(c) check the second drive the first boot device CD/DVD and hard drive.

(d) to save the settings and exit.

    I didn't not get discs with the laptop, or have I made the recovery discs. The instruction manual says to press f8 when I restart and go to "menu of advanced start", but it doesn't matter.

    He looks at the HARD drive died and so the laptop can not boot from the HARD drive but request disk bootable.
    But to be sure, you need to access the BIOS (press F2) and check if the HARD drive is recognized in the BIOS.
    If it s not recognized, then you need a new HARD drive.

    The recovery disc can be ordered here:

  • My Toshiba laptop error: No. Bootable device-insert boot disk and press any key.

    When I put the bootable disc in I lost all my data. Now the problem is that I have a disk of Home Premium Windows 7 64 bit with product key number. This drive doesn't have SP1 on it, and when I tried to load the disc the message was that he could not install this drive.  This hardware of computers may not support booting to this disk.  Make sure that the drive controller is enabled in the Bios of the computer.  (I don't have the original software provided with the purchased used laptop computer).

    I called Toshiba and they said I needed a new drive and it would install for $149.00. I did not pursue it.

    Is my question there a way to get a Microsoft update disc that includes the original as well as the Service Pak data? I see several option on the web site but do not know what I can do.  It seems to me that everything I need is the service pak but cannot load the original software. Is there something in the BIOS I can change?

    Or is there another solution without buying all new software.

    Thank you

    Your PC Toshiba laptop includes a manufacturer recovery partition, and unless you have screwed up the hard drive, it should still be there and accessible...

    That's how access you... For Toshiba, press and hold the "0" BEFORE and during power-up Need you options recovery and overall the machine back exactly as it was when you bought it first.

    Several updates and hours later, you would still have a working machine. After re-installing your programs preferred and your applications, you must use the data backups made to recover what you have done on the machine since...

    It takes a lot of time, but it all works.

    An alternative...

    You can download a Windows 7 ISO, Windows 7 downloads , create a boot from it and pure media install Windows. The only catch here is that you must be able to read the sticker COST on the machine, the version of Windows and the key code. Then you re - install your favorite programs and do data backup procedure as above.

    If you have no backups of data or copies elsewhere and your Windows does not start, you need to make the drive of the machine, connect to another and copy the important of her data files, then place the player to the original host, using one of the methods above to re - install Windows...

    If you find your recovery DVD, you can use them to reinstall the operating system on the new drive - this is described in the document of HP here.

    If you do not, you can order a replacement set by starting at the link below-, the cost can vary a bit depending on where you live, but they are generally inexpensive.

    Order HP recovery disks.

    If you have a problem with this link, try to order them directly from HP.

    If you live in the United States, contact HP here.

    If you are in another part of the world, begin here.

  • Satellite 2140CDS: message: "insert the disk and press a key".


    I got this laptop but the necessary update. I tried to put a master drive from my other laptop to update and it came with 'error' and now when I turned it back on it does nothing about it, totally blank and rpet "insert the disk and press a key".

    I've got everything I can think but still can not do anything.

    Please can someone help?


    What do you mean with master drive? Do you mean the Toshiba Recovery CD or what?

    It seems that the laptop can not find a source of seed and so this message appears on the screen!

    If you use a FDD drive please check if the disk has been removed.

    You must simply insert your Toshiba Recovery CD and boot from the CD/DVD drive. That's all.

    PS: Check if the HARD drive isn't too bad, as if the internal HARD drive is malfunctioning you will not be able to reinstall the OS from the CD

  • Why do I get a message saying "no disc not detected - start insert an and press any key to continue", but none of the keys work.

    When I finished installing, partitioning, and all other actions prompted for installing windows 7 with boot camp, my mac restarted all of a sudden without promote me. My 32 gb SanDisk Cruzer Blade was hooked up to an external USB hub. My screen came up with a console that says something in the sense of ' no disc of starting (or reader) detected - insert and press a key to continue. " I then plugged my FlashDrive directly in the USB interface on my Mac. Then I pushed every button on my keyboard, but nothing happened. I then force reset my Mac and retried, but alas, it didn't work. My computer is stuck here and will not respond to anything else. Any help is appreciated.

    Please, please, please! Someone who doesn't know anything also how stupid it may seem. I can't return to OS x no matter what I try. ;(

Sometimes, my system starts if I'm lucky, but to have this problem, I left my PC for a while, came back to today and it works very well, although it is very slow. Also, when the computer starts, it makes a little beep noise but being on the office that he kept repeating the sound again and again as if it was stuck in a loop, then after about 5 minutes the blue screen error message came, after that it just keeps showing the boot disk failure message.
