This is a tough one, really need some help. My little cousin's laptop is not booting up, model Toshiba Satellite A205-S5864. At first it showed boot error, I got the recovery disks, went though the recovery process. I even reformatted the Hard Drive. I am now getting this error, while using the Toshiba recovery Wizard. <ERROR> An Error has occurred. Error : 10- FA11 -045D. Recovery Error. Please press [OK] to turn off the computer.
I don't know what to this, is the HD corrupt and needs to be replaced??? Not sure what to do at this point... Computer is over 1 year old, out of warranty.
Any assistance will be much appreciated.
(Solved) - Recovery error on Toshiba Satellite A205-S5864(21 posts)
Repair and Recovery are 2 different things. Does it actually give you the option to Repair ?
It will be an Installation/Repair disk. Or, see here,
Not necessarily the hard drive.
I will give vista recovery a short. I just downloaded and burned the iso file for the repair/recovery windows vista 32 b cd. I will let you know how this goes.
Thanks for the info.
I did that already and got the following error. The type of file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows can not run disk checking on this volume because its is write protected.

Glad you got it sorted. A liitle tip, if you can afford it, always buy disks in pairs. 2 disks same make/model from the same batch. That way you more than double your chances of a recovery if 1 fails, as you can interchange the parts.
I am having exactly the same problem as impayler. My question though, is: should the hard drive be of the same brand as the one in the laptop, or another brand with the same specs would also do fine?
Thanx a lot in advance
