Not booting, Blue screen of death

My Toshiba Satellite L50D series laptop will not start at all.

When I put it on power charger and press the power button it roars fine.

BUT it does not boot past Windows Recovery menu.

The keyboard connector got destroyed so I can NOT press down to select Start Windows normally. (Plus a USB external keyboard will not work here)

It gets stuck at the first option and attempts to Recover Windows.

BUT then shows a blue screen stating non compliant hard disk or some code.

We thought it was the Hard disk but we removed and put it in another Toshiba laptop and it booted just fine,we played games even.

My RAMs are fine ,whole laptop good,me thinks?

Please help me start it up fine. Thank you.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Probably some other component has been damaged too and doesn't let you proceed with the booting. Hard drive would have been my first guess too and after that i would check the motherboard.

I have a similar problem with my L50-A laptop. When it tries to boot, it stops working and a back-lite or very faint screen stays on all three lights on the front are working with green lights on left and on center while the right light is solid like orange. When I tried the restore USB from Toshiba, it went through the initializing of the partition, copied the files then began loading the drivers. It got through the first four, then I heard 3 beeps, then 3 more beeps before the display seemed to just expire. IMHO it is the motherboard but it cost more to replace the motherboard than I paid for the laptop 3 years ago. What is one to do.
