Sorry if this is the wrong section, but I was not sure where i should post this, anyways.
Ive had my notebook Satellite L650 for about 7 months now, and recently my notebook would freeze up, and crash with a BSOD, i didnt manage to get the error report. But after restarting, I got an error message before the windows loading screen.
I dont recall the exact message but it could not locate a HDD and would not boot.
My sister also got this same message on her computer a week before coincidentally and told me it was a HDD failure as she had her HDD replaced by Toshiba in Adelaide.
After managing to reboot in safemode, and then doing a reboot from there, i managed to get back into windows.
Its been a few weeks now and i have not had this message, although I do get intermitent lag from general use and end up having to reboot if I can manage to get the start bar up.
After further inspection with HD Tune im convinced i have a damaged HDD, what should i do now?
Heres a picture of HD tune results
Your notebook is 7 months old and with full warranty support so before you start to make some experiments I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
They guys there can check HDD using own diagnostic tools and exchange HDD, if necessary.
I think t is best solution for you. Don’t spend your time playing around.
