Toshiba HDD system recovery failure on Satellite L300D
Posted: 12-Sep-2008 03:31
 
I recently bought a new Satellite L300D and then promptly proceeded to get it infected with a virus.
I didn't have anything on the computer yet that I couldn't afford to lose, so rather than try and fix it I decided to recover the system to factory state.

I started the HDD recovery wizard and I think I interrupted it at the beginning of the process (because I needed to move the laptop and wouldn't be able to leave it plugged in to finish).

When I tried to start the process again I get an error shortly after beginning. The wizard starts by preparing partitions, and then gives me an error:
ERROR: F3-FF00-0020
An error has occured.
Please press OK to turn off the computer.

What's happening here? What are my options?

Thanks.
Akuma

Bad memory could be the cause.

Download and run Memtest from a bootable floppy disk or CD. www.memtest.org
