Error Code

I bought a Satellite P505-S8980 a while back and have loved every minute of it except for now.  I was using to transfer some files over my network and apparently pushed it to far as the HDD completely died. A dissappointment to say the least. So I went to my local hole in the wall computer store and bought a 350 gig HDD by WD. The same day I also ordered the System Recovery Media disks for that model and then waited for them to arrive. Upon arrival of the disks, I installed the HDD then plugged in the disk to begin the recovery of my laptop.  After about 5 mins or so of the screen saying that Windows was loading files a screen came up and said:

<Error>

An error has occurred.

ERROR : F3-F100-0003

An error has occured.
Please press [OK] to turn off the computer.

And thats all it will do now. What is going on? Is there something that I'm not doing? Please HELP!!!!

Re: Error Code

I have the same question as VenomNX, is there an answer to our problem, as I have the same problem. The only exception with me is I am using the origonal 250GB hard drive that came with my laptop.

Re: Error Code

There are few recovery error that are listed or posted in the support site. You can check it through Doc 98082397

 

While running a full system recovery from the Recovery Media, the installation may fail -- and display one of the error messages listed below. Possible causes of these error conditions are listed at right. Use this list as a troubleshooting guide -- not as an absolute list of causes, as there may be others.

"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC10-1710" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.

"An error has occurred. ERROR : 10-FC12-0241" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive or defective memory.

"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-045D" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.

"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC06-0002" -- may be caused by damaged recovery media or faulty hard drive.

"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0970" -- may be caused by defective memory.

 

 

It is really hard to determined, maybe its a hdd issue, memory or recovery disc

Re: Error Code

As I greatly appreciate the reply, when I search the for DOC 98082397 number you listed, this is what I find? "Built-in webcam may not respond after computer awakened from Sleep state". Which of course doesn't help any. So far I have also tried with a Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit disc in place of the factory restore cd, a different RAM Module, & an external CD drive. I am getting ready to try a different HD. So far, getting the same error (ERROR: F3-F100-0003) on each attempt. Any additional information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Error Code

FYI, I put in a 320GB SATA drive I had laying around. Reloaded with the factory Restore CD's. Problem resolved. Thanks again for the reply.

Re: Error Code

Sorry to resurect an old train, however this occured to me on my original hard drive. Except I first received the error that no boot disc could be found, install CD boot disc and hit any key.

So I bought a new hard drive and downloaded the recovery discs. Computer ran fine for about 3 months and now the same "cannot find boot drive" error pops up again.

Anyone got any suggestions for these problems. I now have 2 potentially useless hard drives that even if formatted cannot restart my computer.

Re: Error Code

I have a satellite L655 and the first code I got was 0xc00000e9.  So I tried to do a system recovery.  Then half way through the process I got 10-fc12-0003.  I have no clue what has happened.  Any help is appreciated.
