Try going in to the bios. I think it's power on and start tapping F2. See if your hard drive is there. If not, your hard drive died and you need a new one. If its there, try re-installing XP without formatting the drive. Hope you backed up your computer either way.

Hi, you have not said what operating system you are using, but it sounds like you need to insert your CD that contains your operating system and selecting restore. If not come back to me for more help.

I need to restart my laptop to factory settings


if you want it to be factory settings, you would need the exact same Operatin Sytem installation disk which they probably didnt give you. The reason i say the same is because your serial numbers wont match as your original OS. Anyways if you only doing it to sell the laptop or two have a fresh Operating system, i would recomend you !1) Get a copy os Windows XP
2) Backup all your important files
3) Format your laptop and reinstall XP
4) Restore your files
5) Download (If you dont have it already) your drivers for your laptop. This can be found on Toshibas website.
6) Install all drivers and thats it. You have a Factory Set Laptop

Your compaq wireless receiver may not be correctly configured. It is best to contact the hardware manufacturer and ISPs refuse to assist with the many variables in wireless connection problems.

Load operating system on copaq armada


Insert the operatinng system cd. turn on the computer and boot from CD. In case its not booting from CD you need to go to BIOS and change the boot sequence. Once its booting from CD follow the instruction. Go to www.windowsreinstall.com and check for the steps.

Thanks.

Hi,

If you could possibly post back the exact model number such as MX00 or EX00, then we can determine processor speed, probable memory, hard disk capacity and from there determine which OS would work. and how to go about it eve if the CD is also faulty.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Wont load anything including bios


Sounds like your operating system has been damaged and no longer works. You will need to reinstall it.

If its xp then u will need to put the hard drive in another pc to back up any data. If its vista then all your old files will be stored in windows.old on the c drive as long as u dont format it during install.

Hope this helps?
