Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook ?

Toshiba satellite 1805 s204 "media test failure, check cable"....

\015 I have a toshiba satellite 1805 s204 and everytime we turn it on it states "media test failure, check cable" and "exiting intel pxe rom" insert system disk in drive. One of my children spilled water on the keyboard. I inserted a new hard drive and keyboard but still doesn't work. Can someone help me?\015

Answers :

Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck
