Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook ?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH my MOM'S BUISNESS LAPTOP IS SCREWED UP!!!!!! the batery fell out of her L300 toshiba laptop and will not start up or restore in repare mode because there is no restorepoints!!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Answers :

I would go into the bios and check that the bootable devices list has not been altered ie its not trying to boot from a memory stick or floppy disc or the cd / dvd drive.

Make sure its got the C drive ( hard drive ) selected as the first bootable device.

If that does not work then try and do a restore on the bios to defaults and see if that helps.

If not then you may have to confess and see if she has any valueable data that she needs recovering if so - then get a linux live disc like knoppix or better yet make a bart pe disc to recover the data if its able to detect the hard drive and from there you can back it up to a memory stick or external hard drive and then re install the operating system if you are able to get the laptop that far assuming there are no hardware faults ie the hard drive is damaged or anything like that.

http://www.knoppix.org/

click on download and download the correct ISO and burn that on another computer to a cd and boot the laptop using that - better yet try bart pe :
