Surface Pro (2017) vs Surface Pro 4
I have a problem with my Equium A300D-13X laptop, every time I turn my laptop on it starts up and loads the initial Toshiba start up screen as normal, after that has loaded a loud 'BEEP' comes from my laptop and lists the following information:

I have replaced the hard-drive and flashed the BIOS settings as advised by Toshiba Helpline but the problem still persists,
Please help!!!! because the 'BEEP' is now starting to get on my nerves!!!!!
in the Black window type
This will start a system file checker
This will replace system file that might be missing.
The laptop came with Vista and I've since upgraded to Windows 7 Pro
i've run the sfc/scannow test and it came back with the following message - Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations
There are a number of possibilities I can think of.
Is there a DVD/CD in the drive?
Is your CMOS battery failing? How old is it?
Have you checked the BIOS is set correctly? The detail above indicates two HDDs is this correct or is it misidentifying your DVD/CD drive?
Have you tried checking all connectors and re-seating your RAM module(s)?
Have you tried the usual "sfc /scannow" and "chkdsk /f /r C:" commands?
If not make certain you have your Windows system CD to hand.
Go to "Start/Run" and type "sfc /scannow" (without the punctuation marks but with the space) in the box and click "OK". The check will take some time and you may be requested to insert your Windows CD. Be patient and allow the scan to finish.
If this fails to cure the problem:
Go to "Start/Run" and type "cmd" in the box and click "OK". A window will open, type "chkdsk /f /r C:" and reboot the PC. It will start with a blue screen which will tell you your drive and data are being checked. This will also take time, so again, be very patient.
Let us know if the problem is cured or you need more help.
Is there a DVD/CD in the drive? - No DVD/CD
Is your CMOS battery failing? How old is it? - 3 years old, how would i know if this needed replacing?
Have you checked the BIOS is set correctly? The detail above indicates two HDDs is this correct or is it misidentifying your DVD/CD drive? - This is Correct 2 HDDS are installed
Have you tried checking all connectors and re-seating your RAM module(s)? - Re-Seated Ram, What else can i check?
Have you tried the usual "sfc /scannow" and "chkdsk /f /r C:" commands? - Done both
cheers, i've ordered a new CMOS battery. Are they easy to replace?
