Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A45-S151 Notebook ?
Hard Drive Problems
\015 Okay... a couple of months ago, I just randomly turned on my laptop. The hard drive (well, I think it was the hard drive...) started clicking, and I got the old Toshiba screen and then it said... Media Test Failure... and then it said, "Insert system disk in drive... press any key to continue... and I pressed another key and it did the same thing. And every time I turn it on, it does that. HELP!!\015
Looks like Harddisk issue.
