    laptop Help

    Hi,

    I have a toshiba laptop, for the past few months everytime i started it up it was soo slow, didnt do anything.

    and then the disk drive stopped working so i couldnt restore it or do anything

    now i have brought a new external disk drive
    but the laptop loads up to start but just stays loading and doesnt go onto vista


    heeelp

    thank you

    Do you have vista installed on the external drive? need some more info, what happens with the disk drive?

    the external drive is brand new, has nothing on it but obviously now it doesnt load up i cant do anything with it.

    im not sure what happened with it, it just stopped working, when i put a disk in it doesnt recognise anything is in there

    when you turn the laptop on do you get a toshiba screen?? can you access the bios?? if you can and the HD is not listed then youre HD has packed in, some laptops come with secret partitions in the HD tht u can use to restore the laptop, this will only work if the HD is not broken i dnt know how to access that partition on a toshiba though, if you can acces the HD assuming its working theres a chance you can restore it

    the toshiba screen loads up. i have assessed the bois, HD is there but you still cant do anything.

    the disk drive and lazer is broken so my bf tells me so a new hard drive is needed.. apparently!

    if the HD is listed in the bios then the HD is working, after the toshiba screen what happens does it go to a blank screen, does it say anything, a similar thing happened to me on my acer laptop the other week i had to acces a hidden partition on the HD to restore it

    You wouldnt happen to have an ERD commander disk on you to look at it?
