Bonjour,
Le mieux reste d'aller chez le r?parateur pourvoir ce qui ne va pas et agir en cons?quence, mais il est possible que vous soyez oblig? de changer certaines pi?ces alors j'esp?re que ceci vous sera utile:

you need to put ur email in instead of phone number

Toshiba... | Answered on Jan 17, 2020


you are here because Toshiba's online help is gone. sure.
they tell you there to go to tomshardware and as there.
no PC stated at all model name and numbers..
what if kids set the password, playing with it.
remove the battery from the PC, big one
no AC pack.
push power button for 3 times for 10 seconds each.
wait,5min. hands off PC.
now put the AC pack back.
if the PW is still set, then next replace the coin cell battery inside.
on some Toshiba (none stated) that battery is a rechargeable and if bad, very hard to fix.
let the PC run on AC power only for 24hours in the hope that odd duck battery deep inside recharges, leave the big battery out for all tests, (until PC runs ok again on AC power)

never post about a PC unless, the full model # and name is told
example 1(random)
Toshiba Satellite L455d-s5976

Sounds like your hard disk drive has died.
Fit a new SSD (solid state drive)
Did you make a boot disk / thumb drive like Toshiba recommends?
After you fit the new SSD run the boot disk.
No boot disk you will an O.S. to load onto you computer.

To run the boot disk you have to get into setup, press F2 when the computer starts.
Look for the boot disk options, if you are using Thumb Drive switch the boot option to USB.
If you are using a CD switch the boot option to CD.
Close the setup and reboot...
The boot disk will set up the Operating System with the usual questions.

Hope this helps

1. your device is not a 'DVD-ROM' device, nor a 'CD-RW/DVD-ROM' combo device.
2. you need software, such as the free 'VLD' software, to decode the DVD, and to "play" the video.
3. your DVD-disk is scratched -- will it play in some other computer or stand-alone DVD-player?

Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.

With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.


It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.


From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.


Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display. The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.


Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.


Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.

Select "Music library."


If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.


If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.


Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.

Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.


If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.

You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.


Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.

You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.


Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."

Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall." Click to check "Media Center Extenders." Click on "Apply."


Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.


You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.

Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."


Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup." Click on "Set Up Your Speakers." Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.


and you should run the chkdsk utilty


You could run the chkdsk disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive


or an easier way i have found to run the chkdsk utility


click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart


have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may further damage your computers operating system and hard drive.



hope this helps

try re-installing the device drivers to sort the problem

Toshiba... | Answered on Jan 02, 2020


The newer dvd's often won't play on older machines. The easiest solution is to download and install the VLC Media Player. The VLC Media Player is an open source free player and can be downloaded here.

Hope this solves the problem.

Check the Toshiba site for updated drivers for your dvd player. Also check the recall section for your particular model dvd player. They had several that were recalled.

Theexperiencethat I forgot windows password happened to me a few weeks ago. My friendAcheson who is an IT engineer recommended me to take use of Windows PasswordReset, which is very smart and just take me a shorttime to reset a newly password.
I think this windows password reset tool can help you too.
