Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173 Notebook ?

Toshiba Satallite 1415 wont boot

\015 I just took apart my Toshiba Satellite 1415 laptop to clean up the fan because it was starting to make noises, and I also wanted to see how easy it would be to replace. I then reassambled everything. I took careful note when taking it apart to put everything back together correctly. I then turned it on and it will not boot. It gave me a message that my Windows/System/drivers folder could not be found and then nothing. Should I try a boot CD and How do I get into CMOS on this model (1415-S173)?\015

Answers :

Sounds like maybe the hard drive is not hooked up or not hooked correctly. Tey unhooking it and re hooking it back up.  \015\012
\015\012If it worked before but not now it has to be somethign is not hooked ack up correctly and a cd will not help.  \015\012
\015\012If Its not the hard drive I would suggest taking it back apart to the point you had it before and reasembling it again but make sure all connections are tight, especially the ones where you slide the flat wire in and then lock it.\015\012
\015\012It has to be a loos connection some where. \015\012
\015\012that or the timing of the failure is just coincedental with the disasembly and one has nothing to do with the other.  If thats the case then you have a different problem.  \015\012
\015\012If it is just a fluke and you just have failure I would suggest downloading a program you can install to cd like windows live and then boot to the cd.  once booted to cd you can access the hard drive and fix any problems with directory structure.
