Upgrading a Toshiba Satellite A105-4384. It is a 166Ghz Proc with 4 GB mem. Current O/S was Win8.
Installed SSD ( replacing a Fujitsu ) per installation sheet.
Terrible results. At first start up normal front panel lights & DVD ( Win8 DVD ) ran for a few seconds, then nothing.
Screen black/blank. PC appeared to shut down normally. ( Depress Pwr button for 5 sec ) Attached monitor to VGA; nothing. Made several more attempts, same results.
Looks like PC is waiting for me to take action, I just can't see it,
Maybe bios reset?? How??
All help appreciated

Thanks for the quick answer.
Good news. I figured out the trouble. The memory chip had slipped out of its connector/socket. When I corrected that the SSD ran and I successfully completed the U/G. The Win8 loaded and all is well.
Again, thanks for the quick answer! BTW, I had set the Boot seq to look for the DVD then HD.
