Satellite C850 - How to change Boot Order in BIOS?

Question: Satellite C850 - How to change Boot Order in BIOS?

Hi Peeps,

I have just bought a C850, and using KIS2013 produced a recovery setup on a usb pen drive. But how do I get the machine to boot from the pen, I can find no way to enter bios to change the boot order. I have been Googling all day and tried every method I could find recommended, non of which worked.

Thanks in anticipation,

Ray

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Perform complete shutdown and after you start your notebook again press F12 to enter BOOT menu.

There you will find option to enter BIOS settings.

Hello reader/answerer of my questions,
I am having some trouble with my 750 ODN's bios. This bios was an official update (3.6) from the support centre, and almost everything has been fine since (the plot thickens!). I decided one day I wanted to dual boot with linux, in particular Fedora (this is not related to it though).

But, when I burned the disc and tried to live boot (too test it out) I found that the boot order was set to hard drive first! I rebooted and pressed f12 - didn't work.
I tried delete and escape - neither worked. I then tried all the f keys - none of them worked.
Every time it took me to Windows boot menu, and I explored that and I couldn't find anything.

It's also worth mentioning I am running Win 7 SP1.
I tried both PLoP and osloader (too boot from the dvd) - neither worked.
I also can't remember what the key to start the bios was originally - oops!

Also the toshiba logo with instructions never appears.
I would really just like too change the boot order though, the rest of the bios I don't need access too right now.

A separate issue is that Windows randomly decides it wants to check my hard drive, which takes ages, and it won't give up until it gets to check it. I think it may need some medical help.

But, any help, from a qualified doctor or not, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Mitchell

Answer:Satellite L750 BIOS trouble - cannot change boot order

Hi

> I also can't remember what the key to start the bios was originally - oops!

Pressing F2 while powering up the unit would help you to access the BIOS.
But you don?t need to change the booting order within the BIOS. You can do that by pressing F12. This should be done immediately after you have powered up the notebook.
Then the boot menu would appear and you could choose the right boot device.

Does it functions?

I can't enter bios with F2 or change boot order with F12. It always prompt for a supervisor password that I never set.
The only thing I can do is to hit F11 to enter bios with limited functions where I can't modify anything.
The notebook was brand new and it is working well with W8.1. The problem arose when I tried to boot from a backup dvd to restore the system.
How can I get rid of this problem?

I have 2 sata slots on my Motherboard so I put in a 160 gig hard drive with windows xp worked fine. Now I have one 40 gig IDE harddrive I wanted to put in just as a storage drive.(This computer has both Sata and IDE) computer reboots sees both drives I press F10 or 9 to continue . Then the screen goes black. I know whats happening,, Its reading the IDE to boot from and it doesnt have an O.S. on it. I want it to boot from the sata drive, SO I go into bios to change the boot order.. Every thing including the time is not letting me change it. Bios lock down ... Now I remember going into bios last year and I was able to change settings . Something happened! Now I cant change it. I even pulled out the dvdrom and put the IDE on the ribbon and power.... I heard that might fix the problem on another message board. SAME Problem. I see people with similar problems and the answer is to flash the bios,,, I have been reading about flashing bios and everyone says don't do it if you don't know what your doing. (PAPER WEIGHT IF DONE WRONG) Some one give me some advise and please something that helps !! I have heard so many dumb things to do I'm about to give up.

Hi all,
I have an old Dell laptop that is currently running Windows XP, but I'd like to install Linux on it. So I went into the BIOS, revision A14, and got to the page that changes boot order, so I can boot from CD. It says to use the right and left arrow keys to change it, but they don't do anything. So I am stuck with having to boot from floppy which I can't do for unrelated reasons. Any ideas on why I can't change this? The keyboard works fine, I can change other settings, just not this. Or am I totally missing something? Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Can't change boot order in BIOS

Try moving to the selection you want and hit enter.
That might give you a selection window.
If not try + and -.
Page up and page down also works on some.

I have read many of the posts here on this subject. I have Googled and read many inputs on how to solve this problem. None of these have worked for me.
Here are some of my system specs:





Dell Inspiron 17R 5721
OS Name Microsoft Windows 8 Version 6.2.9200 Build 9200

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3517U CPU @ 1.90GHz, 2401 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical
BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. A03, 10/24/2012
SMBIOS Version 2.7
Embedded Controller Version 1.01
BIOS Mode UEFI

Secure Boot State On

Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1

Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 G



As so many others have written, I can't change the boot-up order which means at this time, I can only boot from the hard disk.
I am hopeful that it is my ignorance that prevents me from accessing and changing the order, and that some good hearted soul will set my down the right path.

Thanks

When I go to the bios, it lists about 7 changes that can't be made, and one is the boot order. It boots the HD first and the CD/Rom second. period! So is there some other way I can run the Reinstallation CD so I can repair whatever it is that's making this machine seem like it's got the FengXing Infection? Thanks, Bahb

Hey guys,

My PC is running Windows 7. In the past I never had an issue running memtest from my CD. I would put the CD into the PC, restart the PC, press a certain key (I think) and Memtest would load.

Unfortunately I forgot what key I used to press and Memtest won't load, it goes straight to the Windows Startup Screen and the Desktop loads.

I went into Bios and I saw that CD/DVD was not #1 in the boot order which is strange because I used to run memtest many times on this PC and I never changed the Boot order.

I tried changing the boot order by hitting the + key but the key won't do anything. Is there some other key that I need to press in order to get + or - working?

also I see two CD/DVD's in the boot order of the Bios, I guess it's because I have two CD/DVD drives? Which one do I make #1? The Memtest disc is in the bottom CD/DVD drive.

Any help is much appreciated
 

Answer:Can't change boot order in Bios to run Memtest

Usually Memtest starts automatically without any key presses if your CD/DVD drive is 1st device.

What brand and model motherboard are you using? Usually it tells you at the bottom of the screen in the BIOS what keys you have to press to navigate through the menus. The manual probably explains it in great detail, but I know, who reads those things?

We aren't going to be able to tell you which drive is which, you will just have to try trial and error with at most 2 restarts.

I have a Gigabyte Ultra Durable 3 motherboard MA785GM-USTH. I have tried several times to set the BIOS to boot first from a cd/dvd. It does not change the boot order. I continues to boot from my hard drive. I want to boot from a UBUNTU CD and I can't. Can someone help?
 

Answer:My Gigabyte BIOS won't change the boot order

My short answer here to this, is that it sounds like your BIOS needs a swift kick in the pants! Maybe the BIOS just needs a jump start, maybe to get things back on track. This is just a real quick little fix, if it works.

1. Remove the computer from power, unplug the power cord from the power supply.

2. Take the side panel off your computer case, exposing the guts of the machine.

3. Look for the motherboard, then look for a small shiny chrome colored battery.

4. Remove that chrome colored battery off the motherboard.

5. With the battery removed, take your hand and press the (power) button on the front of the case.

6. Keep that button depressed and or pushed for approx. 30 to 40 seconds, while your computer BIOS is drained of it's power and hopefully it's current setting.

7. Let off the (power) button, replace the chrome battery back onto the motherboard, replace the side panel of the case and reconnect the computer power cord to the back of the power supply.

Now turn on your computer and see if that helped take care of some things! Again, this is just one of those quick fixes that may or may not always work.

Hope this helps.

Hi there, I hope this is the right forum for this question.

My son has an i7 custom build computer and the previous owner gummed the computer up good with malware etc. The current setup is Windows 8, but our goal is to install a fresh copy of windows 7 Professional 64-bit which we have purchased "intended for distribution with a refurbished PC".

This is a bit of a project for us, so we are taking our time with it, and hopefully learning something along the way.

We are trying to wipe the HDD completely on the machine, but we are unable to run DBAN to do so, because every time we restart the machine it keeps booting up in Windows instead of DBAN. I have gone into BIOS and changed the order of the BOOT to read from the CD-ROM followed by the USB before the C Drive (I have copies of DBAN on both USB drive and CD-ROM). But it is still not booting. Not sure what to do???

Cheers,

Sean

Hi

Satellite C850-F0055 laptop

I am trying to figure out how to access the boot menu at power on.
I have tried f2 & f12, f2+fn & f12+fn, tried holding the keys, tapping the keys
holding for 1 second etc, I have tried all the f keys as well, tried esc, backspace
ctr+ del nothing works.
what happens when I boot up, within 1 second 'Toshiba Innovation' screen appears
and then proceeds to load Windows 8.1.
I can access BIOS/UEFI via charms-pc settings and navigate to UEFI and get in that
way but that won't help if I need safe mode.
My settings are:- ODD/USB/HDD, boot speed set to 'normal', Secure boot disabled
I have a dual boot system with Windows/Linux.
If I put a boot disk in and power up, the boot option is totally ignored but with the disk still in
and Windows loaded and I access UEFI via the above route, enter UEFI and exit again
immediately the disk bursts into life and loads the disk as is supposed to happen at start.

I have not sure where to go now so any help will be appreciated

Cheers Rozzer

I am trying to delete all the files from an old HP (XH545) laptop running XP. Its screen doesn't work, so I have it attached to a remote monitor. I have both a bootable floppy and bootable cd which have [email protected] Kill Disk. My intention is to boot one or the other and erase everything on the hard drive.

Problem: I am unable to get into my BIOS to change the boot order. Since I have to do a Fn-F5 to switch over to the monitor, I am unable to get there in time to see when to hit F2 to edit my BIOS. I have been trying for several hours to "guess" when to hit it, still with no success. I'm not even sure I would be able to see the BIOS screen anyway - maybe you have to get past that for Fn-F5 to swap out to the monitor.

If I let the system boot normally, I can swap over in time to see it loading Windows XP.

Question 1: Is there any way to change the boot order from within Windows (or from DOS prompts)?

Question 2: Lacking a positive answer to #1, is there any other way to delete all the files from the hard drive so I can dispose of the laptop?

Thanks!

Hello,
I have a Lenovo laptop that is about 4 years old. It was working fine earlier today but when I picked it up to turn it on it was powered down and the message came up saying BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. I tried to restart and enter the bios to change the boot order so I could boot from my windows 7 usb to repair the problem with the command prompt but it would not let me into the BIOS. I tried burning a windows 7 Disc to try that but again it won't boot from the cd/dvd either. I know how to fix the problem but I cannot access the bios to change the settings. What could that problem be caused by? Is the mother board gone? I have seen other posts similar to this but everyone seems to pay attention to the windows part and not answer why they can't access the BIOS. I have tried all the keys, F2, F8, F12, F10, ESC, Del. Normally the F2 key works for entering the bios and the F12 is for changing the boot order on my machine. Please help with this BIOS problem and ignore the Windows BOOTMGR problem.

Thank you

You can access the boot menu without changing the boot order in the BIOS.
Power up the notebook and press F12. Usually you should get an boot menu where you could choose the CD/DVD drive as booting device.

Both keyboards I've tried have been USB. I actually bought a new keyboard in case my keyboard was the issue, but the stores only had USB keyboards--if USB is the issue, I'll have to wait a few days before I can borrow an old keyboard that uses PS2.

Is there any way to workaround this using the USB keyboard I have?
 

Answer:Keyboard doesn't work in BIOS, any other way to change boot order?

Try plugging the usb keyboard into the usb port next to the ethernet port.

Howdy all, first post here.

I have a Satellite P840, Part PSPJ6A-00h001

Windows 8.

I am having trouble accessing the Bios or the Boot Order. I need to boot from a CD/DVD and I cant get into the options of boot to change the boot order.

I have tried F12 F2 pushing repetitively on boot, holding down F12 and holding for 1 second (as per the manual) with no luck.

What am I missing....I have never not been able to get to boot options before. The only thing is it is Win8 which I am not familiar with.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Answer:Satellite P840 - Accessin the Bios or Boot Order from Boot

Perform complete shutdown http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2B03EY0002R01.htm , restart notebook, press F12 and you will be able to enter boot menu. There you can choose which device should be first bootable device.

We're tryng to change the boot order in BIOS to recognise the CD drive ready for the windows disk.

This is my problem..

I am curantly working on a Acer aspire 4520. The problem with this computer is that it has sticky keys, first i thought it was the keyboard so i plunged in a usb keyboard and still had the same problems, keys don't react fast, when i turn caps lock on it turns it off and vise versa, when i use the mouse to click something it selects everything on my desktop and opens it all at once.

So i thought it might be a bad OS, so i decide to preform a reinstall of windows vista but when i go to the BIOS it wont let me change the boot order, when i press the keys to chang the order it just makes a beep.

so i went back and did more research and found that some other people are having the same problem and they told me to do i BIOS flash, but that did nothing.. this is the website..

Hi dear!

I got an old computer that I used for perhaps one year ago, and what I did to destroy it was to delete the language pack somehow. Now I would like to try to fix it, as I actually need it. But I do have some issues, maybe someone of you guys know. I can start it up all the way to where I choose between safe mode, and so on - then I get the blue screen that lasts the whole 2 seconds, amazingly enough.

I have Windows 7 Installation, that's all I have. When I start up my PC also says two fix the problem:
1 Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2 Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3 Click "Repair your computer".

Had this been as simple as the system claims, I would have been fixing it myself asap. The problem is that when I put the CD, restart the pc is also nothing happens. So I've searched up a bit, where you can do so in a way pc starts via cd so I can install windows 7 The problem is when I enter the BIOS I can choose between "Information, Main, Security, Boot and Exit ". When I go to BOOT it says "Boot priority order" and that's the list:

Answer:Satellite C850: BIOS EC - what is it and how to update it if necessary?

Hi

First rule of the BIOS; don?t touch it unless you need it.
BIOS is an sensitive computer part and should not be touched if you don?t have serious problems.

Secondly: EC means (embedded controller). The firmware for the controller is part of BIOS and even if you will see an new BIOS version, this does not mean that the embedded controller firmware would be updated too.

"The version of ROM file is the same as that of BIOS"
and it stops. In the DOS window it shows one phrase:
"NOT Windows 8 Platform, using Windows 7 update...".

I got lost. Is there anything I can do to update BIOS?

2. Earlier it says that Flash process will be terminated and I need to "contact OEM BIOS engineer to add the NV storage location by HISII interface". But if I want to risk I can continue etc.

Previously I took the risk and updating went well.
But is there possibility to contact OEM BIOS engieneer?

Hi

>While trying to install BIOS Update 6.70-WIN (29/11/13) it says that:
>"The version of ROM file is the same as that of BIOS"

What is the present BIOS version which is available on your notebook?
In case the BIOS is already up to date, the BIOS flash procedure will be interrupted.

>"NOT Windows 8 Platform, using Windows 7 update...".
I?m not quite sure about the meaning of this information but it looks like the BIOS update was released for Windows 8 system and probably its required to upgrade the system from Windows 7 to Windows 8 in order to be able to flash the BIOS

By the way: why you want to update the BIOS? Just because new version is available?
Please note that BIOS update does not improve the notebook performance but fixes some issues. In case your notebook runs properly, the BIOS update is not very important

Does the laptop support CPUs with a greater max TDP than 35w?
Also does the bios support any of the CPU upgrade options?

Hello,

So I have my Satellite C850-PSKCEV bios updated around 6 months ago to version 6.80 (I bought my laptop in 2012), and since then the fan is running at low speeds and will never run full speed as before, and as a consequence the laptop overheats prematurely and very fast, and even when the laptop is not in use but left running it does overheat, also gaming is not even possible as any game that I run (even with the lowest settings) gets a fps drop every 5 seconds and lasts 5-10 seconds which renders even the lightest games unplayable, also I am afraid of the continuous overheat to damage the laptop's internal components.

I did clean the fan and vents from dust and there is not even one particle inside them and yet the fan won't run fast and I can't feel but very slight airflow from the vents as apposed to the strong one before this problem.

Answer:Satellite C850-1JV doesn't access BIOS, F12 or HDD Recovery

I tried some unconventional methods by myself and *could solve the problem with a trick.*

I will publish it here, because it seems that a implemented function of the board or bios doesn't allow to use bootkeys until an booterror occurs so that you are only able to use this features in case of a needed recovery or so.

Shutdown Windows.
Wait until all lights at the laptop front are off.
Then hold the power button pressed down while switching on again.
After a few seconds this will power off and on the laptop again.

Then immediatly release the power button and press the desired function key (seems so that it is needed to be pressed before the screen "TOSHIBA Leading Innovation" appears).

After under a second the desired function appears on screen.
If not try again. It seems that the system must think a boot error occurs.

Good Luck

toshiba c50-a230 (PSCG8V) , win10 32bit

so a classic question...i want to install ubuntu alongside with windows 10 and im stuck in first stape

so how to go to bios settings and configure device for dualboot options??

thank you.

Answer:Satellite C50-A230 - how to change BIOS settings for dual boot

I think first of all you should create an Toshiba recovery medium before you would start to upgrade or install any other systems.
The recovery disk can be created using the preinstalled software “Toshiba Recovery Medium Creator”.

So after this medium has been created, you could upgrade the system to Windows 10.
After that you would need to create an partition for Linux installation.

I could recommend you the freeware software called Gparted.
You could create an bootable USB stick containing Gparted in order to create additional partition.

Note: in BIOS some changes has to be done in order to be able to boot from external sources (DVD or USB). Secure boot must be disabled and in case the new system will not support UEFI, the boot mode must be changed (from UEFI to CSM)

But as far as I know Ubuntu supports UEFI so it should be possible to install this OS in connection with UEFI mode.

Answer:After BIOS update numpad on my Satellite C850 is not working properly

Hi

I cannot imagine that this issue could be related to the new BIOS version.
Maybe it?s a simple ?bad? luck that this keyboard problem appeared after the BIOS update.

From my point of few, it looks like keyboard hardware malfunction.
But to confirm this diagnosis, you should try some workarounds.

*1st* workaround: First of all enter the BIOS and set it to default.

*2nd* workaround: disconnect AC adaptor, remove battery, press and hold power button 30 sec long. Finally connect both devices again.

*3nd* workaround: connect external USB keyboard and test the functionality.

In case the USB keyboard would work properly, the issue is related to internal keyboard fault.

If not, you need to disable Secure Boot and then change the Boot Mode to CSM Boot (which is BIOS Emulation. MSDOS cannot boot without a BIOS)

So I'm having a dual boot system (Windows and Ubuntu) and since I disassembled my laptop some hours ago the laptop boots directly into Windows (ignoring the GRUB OS selection screen).

I'm having a Lenovo Laptop with Windows 10 (Insider Preview) and a Samsung EVO 840 SSD on which my both OSs are installed.

When booting into BIOS I can't change the order of booting (Windows is stuck at the 1st position).

Any idea on how to solve this?

Answer:Can't change BIOS order

You need to update the boot file location.

I use rEFInd not grub so (from Windows Administrator command prompt) I run this whenever Windows resets it which it does on occasion.
Code:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\refind\refind_x64.efi

You probably want to do something like this (again from windows command prompt).
Code:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi

If you can't remember or don't know where you installed grub (or what the name is) then mount the ESP and have a look - your loader will be in the EFI directory somewhere.

Hi guys,

I have a Satellite C850-1FN laptop which came with win 8. I want to install win 7 because i prefer it to win 8. The problem is that I cannot boot from the Cd/DVD drive or a bootable usb flash drive with win 7. It always says no no bootable media no matter what boot options I choose from the bios menu. I even used an external cd/dvd drive but still no boot from other drive besides the internal hdd.

My Win 7 disc is ok, so is the bootable usb flash drive (tested them on other machine).
Any ideas??
Thanx in advance guys.

Answer:Boot issue with Satellite C850-1FN

Hello,

I clean reset my Toshiba Satellite C850 with windows 8.1 USB flashdrive but now if I start the laptop on there comes a this code 0xc0000001.
I can't start safe mode can't use trouble-shooter.

Please help

Answer:Re: Satellite C850 - can't boot windows 8.1

Hi

Have you installed original recovery image that you have created on USB stick?

Please try to install it again. Usually after clean recovery image installation your notebook should start properly.

By the way: have you noticed this issue immediately after installation or later after some updates installation.

Have you tried to solve it using Windows start-up settings?

Answer:Satellite C850-1j1 does not boot anymore

Hi

The message says that you have to install the system again using recovery media?
As far as I know the notebook was preinstalled with the WIN 8 64BIT system.
You can use the HDD recovery option?

Power on the unit and press F12.
Then choose HDD recovery option appearing in the boot menu.
Follow the instruction on the screen?

Good luck!

Hello!

I just bought a Toshiba Satellite C850 - Z19 (Windows 8 is installed).

Although I edited the BIOS for booting with CD and USB before the HD, my usual bootable Debian Lenny and Squeeze CDs (32 or 64bit version) do not boot, only Windows 8 finally does.

I tried many BIOS config, I have no more idea; .the retailer (using Ubuntu) could not help.

Is it possible?

jchrbe

Answer:No CD or USB-boot on Satellite C850-Z19 - Only Win 8 boots up

Some new PC's have the new UEFI secure boot. You may need to supply something called a signed key. Try searching these terms and see if a solution appears.

Hi,

my C850 running Windows 8 used to boot perfectly from whatever option I chose.

Recently I decided to check my various recovery media, and discovered that despite the boot sequence being
USB
CD
HDD
the machine will not boot if Usb or Cd media is inserted, also I used to get a line during boot up saying something about entering recovery console press F11 ( I think ) , that option has also gone.

I have disabled secure Boot in Bios and disabled fast start in windows power options.

Any pointers appreciated.

Note, it does not ignore the other boot devices and go straight to boot from the HDD, it just hangs and does diddly squat apart from lighting the Num Lock led.

Bios Version V6.70
ATI 2013 6514 ( 6528 )

Thanks in anticipation

Answer:Satellite C850 does not boot from external USB media or CD

Wait a moment. Have you created recovery USB media using preinstalled ?Recovery media creator??
Perform a complete shutdown in Windows 8 . Put recovery USB into USB port and start notebook again but use F12 to enter boot menu.

Recovery USB should be recognized and you can choose USB as first bootable device.

Hi,

I am having trouble starting my Toshiba Satellite C850 windows 7, 64 bit laptop.
I have ran start-up repair and took more than 3 hours, but nothing was repaired.

When my laptop is turned on, a menu appears with two selections; the first prompting me to run startup repair and the other "start windows normally". When I start windows normally, the loading screen appears, but after that the laptop restarts.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Answer:Satellite C850 - Windows 7 does not boot correctlly

If there is nothing you can do about it I recommend you to reinstall OS using original recovery image that you got with your notebook.
After doing this notebook will have ?factory settings? again and everything should be OK.

Do you know how to do this?

Hello Folks,

I bought a *Toshiba Satellite C850 - 1F2* with *+Windows 8+*.
After installing, upgrading to *+Windows 8.1+* and setting up everything, the whole machine worked pretty fine.

BUT since yesterday the laptop won't boot anymore!
When I turn it on, the HDD makes click and click and the system tries to boot from DVD, from USB, from HDD, from IPV4, from IPV6 and then it says, that there is no bootable device.

Unfortunately I wanted to make the +Windows 8 Restoration-/Rescue-DVDs+ this weekend!
Huh!!!

Well, I still have an *+original Windows-7-DVD and license+*, which would be good as well (I used it the last years).
*YET*, I cannot install *+Windows 7+*.
It says something like that, that +this system is not available for Secure Boot+.

I read about "Secure Boot".
So I pressed F2, turned the laptop on and could with this reach the BIOS.
It is a *+InsydeH20 Rev. 3.7+*.
*BUT*, when I go to "Boot Mode" I can only see, that this option is greyed and I cannot change from +UEFI Boot+ to +CSM Boot+.

Even the change of the HDD made no difference.
I put in my old HDD with Windows 7 installed (wich works in the other laptop), but the system won't boot, for it is +not suitable for Secure Boot+.


*So, WHAT NOW?*
I mean, it cannot really be the Toshiba politics, that you need to throw away your laptop, if the HDD breaks, can it?
For I didn't create the Rescue-DVD, I have just my Windows 7 DVD and another HDD with installed Windows ... Read more

Answer:Re: Satellite C850 won't boot anymore - broken HDD

>I hope, that someone can give me any good advice, what to do now ... without throwing the Toshiba laptop away
Let?s start with this sentence. You must not throw your notebook away. There is always some ?last step? that can be done and in your case you can contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
This notebook model is pretty new so I can imagine the warranty is still valid so I think you should contact service and ask if you can get new HDD for free. I mean why not if the warranty is still valid.

hi.

recently i had failure on my pc motherboard ,i replaced it with new motherboard c850-b821 instead of c850-b820.
it has tow slots (busses) for RAM as usual.

When i put ram in each slot it does not start at all.

If i put only one ram in the slot it works perfectly.
While the old motherboard (c850-b820) was working good with one ram in each slot.

Any idea or explanation for that.

Answer:Satellite C850 freezes and doesn't boot up

Hi

I would say: try to recover the notebook back to factory settings.
Did you create an recovery medium in the past?
If not, check if you could perform the HDD recovery.

Hi

I did something really stupid!

Recently I installed ubuntu on My toshiba laptop. During a part where it was downloading things, I turned my laptop off because i thought it was frozen. I turned it back on, but all there was was a black screen with a white flashing "_". I put in an old Windows XP disc to see if i could install it but, still nothing happened.

And the laptop came installed with Windows 8 x64 if that helps.

Do I need to buy a new BIOS chip, or what?

Answer:Blinking cursor and Satellite C850-1NU does not boot up

Hello

In my opinion some unsuccessful OS installation has nothing to do with BIOS and after restart you should see Toshiba welcome screen at least.
>... but all there was was a black screen with a white flashing "_"
Can you see Toshiba welcome screen before you see flashing ?_??

Have you created recovery media (DVD or USB)? If yes try please to start recovery image installation. Start notebook and press F12.
Can you see boot menu with listed bootable devices?

I have a C850-1M7 that has a curious problem.

It has happily been running Windows 8 Pro for six months without any issues.
Now it will not boot into Windows at all, hanging on the logo and swirly dots.
Among the courses of action taken to resolve and diagnose are:

Boot from Windows 8, (or Windows 7) CD: still hangs at Windows logo
Format HDD and reimage: reimaged drive hangs
Boot into Windows PE : also hangs
Boot from another HDD: hangs
Boot into non-windows environment: Works fine!

We had over 100 of these laptops which had the BIOS edited to CSM boot/MBR disk format for mass imaging so there is no recovery partition.

Any help to stop me going grey(er) or bald(as an eagle) would be appreciated!

Answer:Satellite C850-1M7 - Windows 8 hanging on boot (even from a CD)

Did you disable the secure boot in BIOS?
Beside choosing the CSM mode you need to disable secure boot to boot from other sources than HDD

Got a new C850-1JZ yesterday and am trying to replace pre-installed Win 8 with Windows 7. I did create the recovery media (3 DVDs).

The laptop is driving me "insane" as it seems to block any attempt to boot anything else other than Win8 on the preinstalled hdd.

1.) Inserted Win 7 Ultimate DVD and tried to boot, would not boot from disk.
2.) Loaded advanced boot menu and tried to boot from ODD, would not boot from disk it. (Options are LAN, USB, HDD, and ODD (assuming this is optical disk drive)
3.) Changed regular bios settings boot priority to boot from ODD first, then HDD, would not boot from disk.
4.) Learned there is a "security boot protection" mechanism enabled by default in the bios. Turned it off. Machine starts loading from ODD and says "Windows is loading files" then hangs. This is a MS original Win7 Ultimate disk from the Microsoft store, no scratches. Makes no sense. We actually have 2 of them, so I tried the other, same result.
5.) Thought screw that, let's just put the hard drive from the other computer (T61) in here then and do clean new setup another time. Replaced hdd with other sata hdd that has Win 7 ultimate installed and system configured. When booting from hdd, it says "No OS" found and reboots. When booting from ODD, it starts with windows is loading files again and then freezes.

What kind of other extra protection/virus blocker/stupid setting am I missing here? This is puzzling me. Thanks.
