Hey all, Long time reader -- first time poster.
I have a Toshiba M40 Laptop (canadain version) and as luck would have it 1 month after my warranty expired... bam, the computer refused to work.
First off, I dropped the pc a while back, and as a result the DVD drive stopped reading CD's... it constantly made "Static" BZzzZZ sounds after the drop incident. Unfortunantly I never had time to fix it...
I use my Laptop quite often, and now all of a sudden -- the laptop refused to work, after a long charging -- now it gives me the error you see on the attachment.
Apparently that's a program used to load pc's without hard-drives, correct? if so does that mean my hard-drive is messed up?
Any ideas? suggestions? (if so please include an estimate of how much it might cost)
also -- no I can't go to a toshiba retailer at the moment, they're too far. so will awit to hear your suggestions first. thanks.
