The number of Toshiba laptops I’ve come across recently with dead hard drives is a worry, it does seem to be a week point on them and their diagnostic software is also not very good compared to the likes of Hitachi or maxtor so if you do need to replace the drive I would go for a different make! A few nights ago my computer froze whilst I was online. Yes its corrupt sounds as if mbr is corrupt, What op system? You may need these to reinstall from onto your new drive. It’s recognised but not able to be booted from. The question is, is this the solution?

Yes its corrupt sounds as if mbr is corrupt, What op system? Boot from an Op system cd, probaly Windows 7, and work to repair my current hard drive. You may need these to reinstall from onto your new toshiba satellite pro c650 ethernet controller.
It may not have come with a op system DVd as they often put the toshiba satellite pro c650 ethernet controller on a hidden partition on the hard drive. When I tried to start it up again, it went straight to a black screen and read ‘No bootable device found – Insert boot disk and press any key’ I managed to enter BIOS and changed settings to default, saved, and rebooted, but no change, I aslo tried moving the order of th boot up so that LAN was last in the list I have heard that it may be trying to boot from LAN but no change either, it just reads ‘for atheros pcie ethernet controller v2.
Firstly, I don’t think I have any idea where my op cd is, so where would I be able to get one? It does recognise my HDD, as it is listed as first booting option on boot manager F12 so it’s not dead.
The question is, is this the solution? Do I work to repair it? I don’t want to waste any money A few nights ago my computer froze whilst I was online.

The number of Toshiba laptops I’ve come across recently with dead hard drives is a worry, it does seem to be a week point on them and their diagnostic software is also not very good compared to the likes of Hitachi or maxtor so if you do need to replace the drive I would go for a different make! I have taken my HDD out and put it back in to make sure it wasn’t a loose connection, didn’t help. Not recognising a HDD is fitted, first boot device is just an option. I tested twice and both times it said no hdd was found, does this mean it’s faulty?
With both of these options you will need to download the drivers for that machine. So this could mean that the hard toshiba satellite pro c650 ethernet controller is corrupt? Or buy toshiba satellite pro c650 ethernet controller new hdd?
As far as I can tell, I have two options: L I didn’t have any important data on my laptop, it’s mainly used for entertainment. Secondly, what are some good hard drives you can recommend that are compatible with my laptop? Thanks for the feedback guys: Not much use when the HDD fails. Help please, thanks in advance: Buy a new hard drive.
Boot to the command line tool and contorller fixmbr. Someone else mentioned I could download hirens or linux onto a toshiba satellite pro c650 ethernet controller drive and boot off of that, and run tests to make sure my HDD is faulty, is this correct, how would I go about it?
Or is that possibly not the problem, and buying a new hadr drive would be a waste of money?
It’s recognised but not able to be booted from. If so, what now? So if the solution is to buy a new hard drive then I am happy to get one. If so do I need a new hard drive? You need to boot from an op system CD to command prompt and run fixmbr and fixboot at the c: If you did not make the Restore DVD when new and need a new drive then you will need to get a copy of windows 7 oem the same version that was on there ie home premium or ultra etc and use the product key from the toshiba satellite pro c650 ethernet controller on the bottom of the laptop if it is readable if not you will need to buy a new satelite of windows.
Is it possibly faulty? Your notion of remove and refit drive was a good one, but if machine is not finding it then a good chance it has died.
Ok, I managed to work out Hirens, and ran the fujitsu hdd diagnosis test.
