    data recovery is possible.... the more you had to the computer after a restore or format hinders the recovery of data.



    are you using a legal copy of xp ?

My pc was very slowly running


Your machine is old, there's not much you can do. Remove any programs you don't use, stop programs from starting-up with the OS, and increase your RAM: http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

My pc is very slow


-Can you provide more information about your issue?
-Are you using Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows Seven?

When you say slow, is it slow when you are on the internet or slow when accessing or the computer or generally slow like everything is running slow?

My pc keeps either freezing or crashing altogether,this only seems to happen when i am surfing facebook ,or pictures on the web,I can watch youtube,or movies with no crashes at all,I've scanned for viruses...


Im guessing XP and if you have the CD do whats called a repair install. Choose the upgrade option then install it, this will not harm any of your programs at all you will just have to do all the windows updates when its finished. Cheers and please vote

My computer is only left on for about 5 or 10 minutes and it freezes up to the point where I have to reboot it and it usually takes 4-5 times of rebooting for it to come up to "start windows normally"...

I know someone who had a toshiba and the computer crashed. I think you can solve it by downloading some kind of updates but I dont know where or what to get. I would appreciate some help. If you all could...


First to determine what problem for crash, wherther its a hardware or software issue. If it a operating ystem problem like not booting up or corrupted files you can restore it with help of the operating system or even not possible go for factory default restore but you may loose all your datas.

To get update from Toshiba you should know the model number and details.

For US customers and UK customers inculding world wide customers they have different support site

Windows OS update you get from Microsoft site or enabling Automatic update..
