My Toshiba Sattelite A55 S26 has been working like a champ for over 3 years, For some reason it has failed to boot today. The F12 key does nothing, before I buy a new hard drive and start from scratch anyone have any ideas?
When I turn on the pc the Toshiba logo comes up with its boot choices; default setting on the hard drive. However, when the hard drive should boot, the screen becomes grey with the cursor flashing in the upper left corner. I don't hear the hard drive, fans or anything else attempt to boot.
I usually don't use the local "techie" because I can make my own repairs. I will try using the F8 key when I see the Toshiba logo appear. I have already ordered a new hard drive, which I suspect is the problem, my recovery discs are at not with me so I can't do much until I get those discs and try and boot from the cd.
thats cool with me.thing is i dont give info if i know its it can result in a screw up. laptops ill only work on if i have them by mysself. i hate to guide people to take apart their lappies.
Thanks, I understand your sentiment. I have done a significat amount of laptop and desktop work so feel pretty comfortable with the mechanics. Just frustrating when I don't have the materials I need; ah well a few days more won't hurt.
