Having problems with your Toshiba A15-S1292 Notebook ?

Hard drive my toshiba says that there is a media problem and to check cables. i think it may have a loose hard drive cable. is this guess right? how do you open the toshiba to access it. it is a Toshiba A15-S1292 PC Notebook


Answers :

Have you made any changes to your bios? usually when i see this come up the bios has been changed or the hard drive has gone bad. you can try unscrewing the panel on the bottom of your toshiba that has a cylinder looking symbol next to it to check the hard drive. but most of the time like i said, this happens is because the hard drive is not being recognized/checking in during P.O.S.T. which usually means bad hard drive


Good Luck!
