Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

System shut down during update installation now won't boot up to windows vista and wont work in safe mode either. Loads a few files in safe mode but then goes to a black screen and stays there.


Answers :

You need to run a nifty little program called Spinrite on your laptop. You can download it via BitTorrent2.gif HERE

you will need to use a program to burn the ISO image2.gif onto disk and make it bootable. I use PowerISO . It is very easy and straight forward. You can download it HERE (use the name: Dr.Upload
serial: SKSIP-7AIX1-8YWEZ-U197K-T88IE ) to remove restrictions.

Open the iso file2.gif using PowerISO. Now we have to make it a bootable disk image2.gif. Spinrite comes with FREEDOS instaled, but most laptops don't like using it.
Follow directions here on making a bootable image.

after burning your disk boot your system up with the cd. when you get to a prompt , ie C:\\\\ you will need to change it to your default cd drive mine is E:
after changing the drive letter type SPINRITE
the program will start - follow onscreen directions and change scan level to 5. after program finishes reboot after removing disk.
should run like a new pc with no Loss of information.
