Hi, i am trying to repair a Friends Toshiba L300 laptop that is not booting up. When you switch on it asks if you want to start up in recovery or normal mode, but whichever i choose i get a warning window system recovery options saying "The installed program cannot start, Click ok to turn off the computer" then is shuts down. I have also noticed that the dvd drive does not open. Any ideas
1. Check your BIOS Settings - bootup error may be from starting from the wrong location, or the drive does not show in the BIOS. 2. Do the ‘CrashTest’ and check the drive selection on the Hard Drive next to the Data Cable, there should be an indication of pins for Master, Cable, or Slave selection. You can select the Cable selection or remove all jumpers.
