Toshiba Recovery Software Not Working

March 14, 2010 at 15:44:49
Specs: Windows Vista Home, 1 GB
Attempting to format an old L300 series Toshiba. Will not boot from HDD or Recovery Disk. I have the original Toshiba Recovery software, but it gives me a data deletion error with the code 20-FFFE-045D during the format process. Unit will also occasionally turn off for no apparent reason, suspecting PSU or HDD issues. Please advise.

The HDD is most likely dead & will need to be replaced.

HDD has been replaced and problem solved. However, laptop persists in randomly shutting down during display driver installation. Suspecting a power supply issue.
