Problem with my Libretto 50 CT

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.
