    Toshiba satellite L510 laptop
    hi, I need help to boot my laptop to win 7. When i open my laptop came out this message with beep sound and it can't boot to my Win 7:-
    This product is covered by one or more of the following patents ;
    US5,307,459
    US5,434,772
    US5,732.094
    US6,570,884
    US6,115,776 and
    US6,327,625
    Realtek PCI express fast Ethernet controller series v1.15 (090224)
    if I keep on pressing from F1 to F12 it shown:-
    Check cable
    exiting PXE ROM.

    After awhile it then log in to my win 7 desktop.
    I searched from the website it say because it doesnt boot from your harddisk, must go bios setup to change it to harddisk. Now I tried press f2 or f12 when i just on the power and went to the setup, it shown boot from HDD#1/SSD#1. Does it mean is correct?
    Thank you.

    You use the bios to select which devices boot in which order.You have option of booting the hard drive that has windows installed on first or dvd drive.If you don't require the dvd for booting anything then set your hdd with windows as device 1,you can have dvd drive as 1st boot device as when the bios can't find the windows .exe it will then search the next device in the list a so on & so forth.It's why your win 7 eventually booted as it appears win 7 is perhaps the last device to boot

    At the start button>search programs, I type HWSETUP. There show a Boot priority options in this sequence :
    HDD#1/SSD#1
    eSATA HDD
    cd/dvd
    fdd
    Lan
    usb

    Does the above shown that it will boost from my HDD first?

    My keyboard button N and H not working, will that caused this malfunction?
    Now I m using a virtual Keyboard.

    Thank you.

    So meaning the message shown and the peep loud sound when i power on wasn't due to this hdd first boot?
    I thought it was booting from other
    drive that causes the error message.
    How can i check the exact problems of this message.
    Sometimes after error message and sound for 3 mins, it then will auto go to desktop.
    Thank you.

    The error message is vague or incomplete.
    Beeps on start up can be due to flat cmos battery or faulty hardware.
    being a laptop your options are limited.
    you could check windows error logs .

    I'd most likely remove any & all hard drives & use a desktop to do a disk check.In the meantime i'd then use a live linux cd & see what happens,tho i'd use the bios & either disable the hdd option & or reset boot order so dvd drive was 1st boot device

    Sorry I have so little knowledge on hardware. I do not have a desktop. Can you lead me step by step to check win error logs. Thank you.
