    My friends computer said this:

    Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.
    This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.

    If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.
    Status: 0xc00000e9

    Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred.


    I suspect that this is a hard drive failure and now you can't even F8 into safemode

    using F12 you get to the boot menu:


    I think this proves that you're not dealing with a hard drive that slipped out of its socket...

    Just let go as far as it can go and this is all you get:



    underwhelming to say the least.

    additionally, and unrelated, my macbook's optical drive quit so I can't burn a boot cd to test the laptop so I'm fishing around for someone who might recognize this as a typical Toshiba satellite L775 failure well understood, etc...

    Please let me know what you think
