I've had this Toshiba laptop for years and about a month ago it gave out on me. I kept getting a "Enter built-in hdd password" error and I couldn't get it to boot up. I kept it aside and borrowed my sisters laptop to use in the meanwhile. 2 days ago I needed files from the laptop so I booted up trying to retrieve the files and it actually worked. In the process of going thru it, windows update happened and the computer had to restart and I went back to the same problem. I then updated the bios version and got rid of the "built in hdd password" problem but it still won't boot. When it starts up it says "Insert system drive in drive, press any key when done". The CD works but I don't think the hdd is reading right. Here is the system info... Boot Priority=CD-LAN-HDD-FDD HDD Priority=Built in HDD-2nd HDD-PC Card Network Boot Protocol= PXE Built in HDD=No Drive (this worries me) Select Bay=Secondary IDE (170H/IRQ15) Device Config=Setup by OS PCI Bus=IRQ10, IRQ11 Please any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I just want to retrieve my files from the laptop.
