    Problem with my Libretto 50 CT

    Locked

    by mulwanda ·

    Last Saturday I left my Toshiba Libretto 50 CT scanning for viruses on the hard drive. When I went back to it, it hadswitched off. I tried to switch it on and it failed to boot. The following words appear when switched on:
    “computer cannot go into hibernation HDD damaged”; then
    “HOC error”; then
    “insert system disk”.

    I inserted the system disk but I when I try to get to C drive I get the message:”invalid specification”. What could be wrong? What can I do to put it back on the “road”?

      Hi,

      I’ve never seen a Toshiba Libretto 50 CT before let alone used one so you may want another opinion.. but…

      The messages are fairly self explanatory. I’d say you had a hard disk crash!

      Whether its recoverable or not is another thing…You could try re-formatting it after booting with what a assume is the equivalent of a floppy… but you’d lose all the data!

      …and it may not work. Its possible you’ll need to buy another hard drive.

      Good Luck,
      Tim.

      I’m sorry that you bought a Libretto…
      I happen to use one also.. 🙁

      Try replacing the hard drive and then rebuild your operating system. You most likely had a hard disk failure.
