Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Toshiba Satellite A105-S2201

\015 I've had my laptop for about 17 months. It worked fine until I slammed down on the keyboard. Actually, then it worked perfectly for several minutes, then it froze up. I did a hard shutdown and when I restarted it...\015\012\015\012\015\012The first screen says Toshiba and while that's loading I get a choice at the bottom that says F2 for System Utilities or F12 for Boot Menu. If I don't press anything, the next screen has Intel Corporation info then:\015\012\015\012For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet controller v2.17 (051202)\015\012PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable (no cable unless it's inside the laptop.)\015\012PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.\015\012Operating System not found\015\012\015\012If I press F12 for the Boot Menu, I get 5 choices. HDD, FDD, CD/DVD, LAN or USB Memory. No matter which one I choose, I then get that earlier screen or a screen that says TOSHIBA Recovery Wizard. Warning This HDD is not initialized. Initialize HDD and restart. And if I continue anyway, I get Error: F3E1000001 and have no choice but to shut down. After googleing HDD I figure that means Hard Disk Drive? Whatever. That still doesn't say how to initialize it.\015\012\015\012I also have the CD that came with the computer. When I use that it says to hold down C until the Toshiba logo appears, then I get "Loading RAMDISK Image, please wait". Then I get the Recovery Wizard window. Same as before. At one point I got a message that said I have no Hard Drive but I can't get that screen to come up today.\015\012\015\012I've taken two panels off of the back and I believe one was for the Hard Drive. That did not want to just wiggle loose so it appears that I didn't jar it loose when hitting the keyboard. The other panel covered the motherboard (?) and other boards. Those look fine but when I first hit the keyboard, that particular panel was a little warped looking. It popped right back into place. I also unscrewed every screw on the back and the laptop did not just want to pop apart. So I didn't force anything. I know, I have an expensive temper. But only on rare occasions.\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for any and all help!\015
