Are you hearing any fans or noises from the Laptop when you try to start it?

Hi. Yes i can hear the fan n i start up my laptop then the fan stopsthe screen goes black and a message comes on screen from windows boot manager saying "windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computor.
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 ahard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make suse any removable storage properly connected and then sestart your computor.
If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.

Can you disconnect everything from the Laptop, including the power cable, external monitor, usb sticks, external mouse ect and tell me if it then starts please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Nothing connected to laptop. It starts up then screen goes black and a message i previously mentioned comes on screen from boot manager. Problem accured since i unplugged USB lead while in use.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Sorry John but getting confused here
I gave a set of instructions and you replied
"Yes it starts up."
What then did you mean with that message?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry. When i turn on the laptop the toshiba logo comes on and the fan comes on briefly then stops then screen goes black then error message comes on screen from windows boot manager. I have tried toshiba repair disk but nothing happens.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, remove the battery and leave this out, then try to start it with just the power cable.
What then happens?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Same problem accurs.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thank you
status OxcOOOOOe9 refers to a memory issue and we have ruled out any power problems that can cause this John.
It is going to be either the hard drive, memory or motherboard that has faulted. It is a hardware problem.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the laptop to have a hardware diagnostics performed, the faulting component identified and then replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
