Recovering Data from a Toshiba Laptop


I have a Toshiba Satellite A215 which has not been working very well in recent months. I decided that the best thing that I could do to solve the problem was to run a recovery program. I put in the disk and everything seemed to go as planned. However, after using the computer, I turned it off using the shut down process. That seemed to take a lot longer than usual, and when I come to turn it on this morning, I have found that I am just not able to. The laptop will boot itself up fine until it gets to the Windows Loading page, and then it will just shut down, automatically. I cannot access anything on the Windows OS screen, and I also cannot enter safe mode or any of the other modes which are optioned in BIOS. I will click them, it will launch the Loading screen, and then boot itself back down again.


I have a Toshiba Satellite C655D laptop which will not boot into Windows. When I start it up, it goes onto the Toshiba splash screen, and from there to a black screen with all of the various modes on it. I try to boot up one of the systems, either Bios or Windows, and I am told that there is No Bootable Device. The system suggests that I insert the boot disk and then press any key, or remove the disk and try again. I don’t have any boot disks in the CD drive, because the boot is done through the hard drive. I think this must mean that my hard drive has failed somehow, and that this is a sign from the system that all is not well. Can your recover the hard drive data?
