Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A70 Notebook ?

Shutting down/ and has a partition fault

\015 Hi I have had this since 04, the computer starting shutting itself down for no apparent reason, I put it in to get it looked at but the repairer said it never shut itself down when with them, so took it home plugged it in and it started shutting down staight away, I was then told to put in the recovery disk, which I did now it starts going through the process and shuts down whilst still in the process. now when you turn it on it comes up with a partition fault, with no dos promp\015

Answers :

There a link to a Dos program if you have a cd burner you can do this if what I try to tell you to do does not work first. Ok can you get into bios, if so try and go into the boot sequence and make your Cd/Dvd rom No.1 and you HDD No. 2 leave the rest as they are, Ok now save your setting and exit you bios, Now put in your operating system Cd and boot from Cd, Now you can do a R repair or and you won't loose all your files music ect..
Or you can do a total fresh copy of windows on your computer. See if that gets you up and working, If not go to the link above and burn or save Dos files and install them on your computer and once you do that you should be able to install you system back to normal, Also make sure you are not plugging the vents on the sides or underside of the computer overheating will cause it to shut off, a fan blowing on it could also help. sounds like its overheating to me so try and keep it cool while doing what you have to do, I sure hopes it help you out, If It does not write back here and let me know what else is up and we will see if there is another solution for ya. Take Care Bear001.
