Laptop will not start
After you have formatted your Toshiba Satellite M500 laptop you would find in some cases that the laptop is not starting. The screen will only show the loading screen but nothing will happen, no matter how many times you restart the system. Also you might get the problem of fan starting to move but stopping after some time. For these problems first you should turn off your computer and remove all the wires attached to it as well as bring out the batteries. Now again plug the power cord and turn on the computer. The problem should be solved; if it is not then you might need to reinstall the Windows® operating system.
Error message-invalid system disk
You are most likely to get this problem when you have upgraded the operating system of your laptop. It means that there is some problem with the operating system in the hard disk drive and to solve this problem you need to reinstall the operating system again from a CD drive or from a floppy drive. Also you might get the problem of removing anything from BIOS. For this also you need to reinstall the operating system again since you get such problems when hard drive does not recognize the operating system.
You should always have the re-installation DVDs handy before you do the formatting. Also you should have the DVD for the re-installment of the partitions where the media files are saved. You should be very careful while re-installing the files because re-installing, in many cases works only with the same partitioning system. Also it is better to have multiple DVDs ready in case you fail to copy the files from one.
