Specs: Vista
My Toshiba satellite a300 harman/kardon laptop starts up, shows the regu.lar toshiba start up screen (so the screen itself is still working) but then goes to a black screen with a few characters in the top left corner. It looks like three parallel horizontal lines, followed by what looks like the pi symbol and "> S _"
if anyone could steer me in the right direction in regards to fixing this problem it would be much appreciated. if you need any additional details about my laptop, just ask :)

for what its worth...

- vista
- 4 yr old laptop
- has dead battery- required to plug it in while i use it for like thr past year now

thanks again!

Try to enter BIOS and correct the boot order, the first drive should be optical drive followed by hard drive.
