I am getting status OxcOOOOOe9
Info An unexpected I/O error has occurred
Hello

My name is James

Welcome to Just Answer

This is usually a harddrive error

Can you get it to start into windows at all?

so you can back your data up ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No the bar on the bottom goes about 90% across the bottom and stops

Thanks

is it a desktop or a laptop

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

laptop, toshiba satellite C855-S5214


 

Perfect thanks


Good news and not so good i am afraid

the I/O error means the disk has an issue.

This dose not mean your Data is lost

You need to remove the the 2 screws holding the harddrive in the Laptop and remove it

Then place it into a USB Caddy , this then means the disk connects as normal as a usb disk and you can copy your data off , then you can format the drive and replace and try and re-install

however i would suggest that new Harddrive is needed

HERE is the link to Caddy ,

Come back if you have more questions
