Somehow the HDD is screwed up. Data saving issue is not directly Toshiba related issue and before you spend time here discussing about such things I recommend you to ask someone with good PC knowledge what can be done about data saving.
When the HDD is in the notebook again start notebook as first step set BIOS to default settings.
After doing this install recovery image. After doing this you will have clean preinstalled OS and everything should work properly again.
I hope you will be able to do this using HDD recovery option.
How to do this you can find on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm
Have you maybe created recovery discs?

    I have an old ipod touch which won't go past the Apple logo, all it does is show me a loading symbol, but will go no further, i have tried restoring it and i have been successful. It connects and is recognised by my itunes and computer, but still after restoring it, it just won't get passed the logo..what can i do? what is the problem?

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    Thank you.

    How did you get a Lion OSX install disc? They don't exist. Do you mean the gray disks that came with your 2007 MacBook?
    If you mean the gray disks, try starting up with the "c" key held down.
    What version of OSX is on your MacBook now? Have you tried booting from the Recovery partition?

  • PLEASE HELP  Forgot my admin password for os x Yosemite

    hello every one i really need  help. i forgot my admin password and i really need the stuff which is inside can anyone please help??? i already checked online  but i did not get what  i need cuz  of this photo i did cheek the box of resting my password with an apple id.

    Boot from the Recovery Partition and reset your password from there.
    Here’s how:
    1/ Make sure your computer is completely shut down.
    2/ You’ll have to be quick next: Press the Mac’s power button. As soon as you either hear the loud chime, or see the display light up - usually after a second or 2 - on your keyboard press [cmd] + [r] Keep these keys on your keyboard pressed until you either see an Apple Logo with a loading bar or a spinning gear.
    After a few minutes, you’ll be presented with a Utilities screen. This is the Recovery partition. If this step is already giving you problems, try using a USB-keyboard. It doesn’t have to be an Apple-keyboard. If you have a Windows-tailored keyboard laying around, use the “Windows-flag” key in stead of the [cmd]-key and it should also work.
    3/ Find the menu called “utilities” in the top left corner of your computer’s display. It’s in between the menus “edit” and “window” Don’t be confused with the menu called “os x utilities” 
    Choose Terminal. A somewhat old-fashioned looking window will pop up, waiting for a text command from you. This is the Terminal.
    After the # type: resetpassword and press return. Note that there is no space between ‘reset’ and ‘password’ 
    What you’ll see next is an rectangular window that gives you the option to reset passwords. Set a new password for all the users that you need.
    We’re ready to reboot your Mac now. Click on the Apple Menu and choose “startup disk” Choose to boot from “Macintosh HD” Please let us know if this solved your issue, or if the steps above did not work, or could not be performed for some reason.

  • LR4 "All Photographs" does not show any images.

    This week I upgraded from LR3 to LR4 on my Mac. Unfortunately, since doing so, "All Photographs" has stopped showing any images even though it indicates that there are 26,000 images in the library. Also, even though I have activated "Show photos in subfolders" that does not seem to work either. What is the problem please?

  • Starting iTunes 11 with the option key does not allow me to link my ipad with Remote

    I am using my Macbook Pro as a pure music server with a 2TB external USB 3 HD where all my music resides in a single folder.  Yet when I start iTunes by holding the option key (to allow iTunes to see the 2TB folder and not import all my music), the Devices tab is grayed out and hence my iPad3 is not recognised. As a result, I cannot use Apple's Remote App.
    The same hardware, does allow my to import a small named Library when the iPad is recognised.
    What gives? Any suggestions would help me to keep my hair!

    Try a Skype reset:

    You may also want to test it out in Safe Mode with Networking to see if anything changes.  Since Skype uses IE in the background make sure you Internet Explorer is able to browse web pages without restriction or that it isn't in some type of forced offline mode.

  • The option to Set Breakpoints does not show up when I right-click any step

    Hi All,
    I am working with a SSIS package and trying to set breakpoints to view the contents of package scoped variables. I am running SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and developing in Visual Studio 2008.
    When I right-click on an Execute SQL Task (or ANY step in the package) I see no menu pick to "Edit Breakpoints" or "Set Breakpoint". Can someone tell me why that option is missing?
    TIA

    Arthur,
    Thank you so much.
    Your answer might seem obvious to most everyone but me. The SSIS package was part of a larger ASP.NET Web Site project. As a result whenever I opened the Web Site Project the package showed up in the Solution Explorer and of course I just opened it. Nowhere
    have I read that if the package is opened in that manner so many development features would be missing.
    How foolish of me to also assume that if I started "SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio" and simply opened a package...that those critical features would not appear. Live and learn. LOL
    Have a great day!
