Power connection to computer came out during shutdown yesterday. Today, turning on, it will not boot up.


You are going to need a clean boot up disk. You will have to get one mailed to you or you will have to use another computer to download one. This will get you back into a point that you can do a windows restore. This is going to get rid of all programs and start you fresh. I do, however, feel that you disk drive is going out or already shot. You should do a Chkdsk on it. (check disk). This will tell you if it is a hard drive error or not.

Por que me sale an internal error in the initialization stage


Initialing stage is indication that the computer is undergoing restore to system default. First, at which stage where the computer stops performing restore is indication that disk is either scatched or dusty requiring cleaning. Power shut the computer completely from the shut off button because attempting to press the disk button instantly would cause impact that may damage the restore disk. Power on the computer from the power on button area. Immediately press the disk button to before the computer attempts to capture the media in disk driver. The computer disk driver should pop open immediately to make available the disk. At which point, inspect the restore disk for scratches or dust by simply cleaning with clean tissue paper. Also, observe the disk for compartibility with the computer systems. For example a computer performing on windows XP would least require update restore with disks that are Windows 7. Discontinue restore if realised that the computer is inconpartible to the disk attempting to derive restoration from. If the condition was due to dusty or scratches, simply cleaning the disk should make commenceable the restore process.

Computer not working. tried restore says error stopped it from working. facebook apps won't work. says to download flash version. tried said downloaded but still won't work. try to get on some web pages...


Sounds like your hard drive has unrecoverable errors. If you have another computer available, download SeaTools for DOS and copy it to a CD. Boot the problem computer from the CD and it'll run a check to see if you harddrive's smartcheck flag has been tripped. If it has, replace hard drive and restore the factory settings using restore disk(s). If you don't have the restore disk(s), you can order them from Toshiba for your model for about $20.
If hard drive checks out w/out errors, you may be suffering from a virus that has corrupted files. The easiest and fastest approach is to restore to factory settings using the restore disk(s). If you haven't backed up your important data, download AVG with another computer, put it on a CD, install it on the problem computer, if possible, then start the problem computer in Safe Mode, then run the AVG program. It will default to batch mode when run in Safe Mode. If you have viruses, it'll get hundreds off your computer during the batch run. You may have to turn off Windows' System Restore first, to ensure the viruses don't get reloaded.
Good luck!

I want to restore my a25-3072 laptop back to factory specs.


ok first things first I believe you mean "XP tablet edition" instead of "Desktop Management Interface"
  • A Tablet edition just means laptop version of and operating system. Laptops need different operating systems, than desktops, to function correctly.
Second even if you are using a Tablet edition of XP you can't use it from another computer.
  • When ever you use a restore disk specifically designed for another computer you will get the error message you described.
  • You will need to find the original restore disk for that laptop, or you will need to find a new Tablet version of Windows XP.
Once you install a new version you should stop getting that error message. But it has to be brand new. Please rate me I want to know if I was of any help.

When powering up it will go to the windows xp screen


HI. This will happen if the core system file bank has been compromised by a virus or malicious software. I suspect the virus has wiped out all restore points and has completely disabled all safe mode access points as well..Unfortunately, you will lose all your saved information that you have stored on the partitioned hard drive due to this attack. The only way to fully restore this system to its factory settings would be to locate a recovery disk that should have been shipped along with this unit. Use this disk to restore the core system files and the main operating system as well. If you don't have the recovery disk that was sent with your unit, a Windows XP disk will preform the same action and, will restore this unit to factory specs as well, minus the software pack. There is a possible way to restore this system and keep the hard drive as is but, this can only be attempted by using the original recovery disk that was sent with the unit and, its not always successful. I recommend totally re formatting the drive to clear it of all data. this will assure that the virus and all of its contents are removed.

Please rate and god bless.

This is a Windows error code for a bad hard drive sector, basically you have a bad hard drive. However, if you're using or the restore disc has the partition magic program, it can give a false reading. So, during the install, reformat the hard drive, do a full NTFS format, not the quick format. If the drive will not format, then it's bad. If it does format, but will not install, it's likely that the restore disc is using the partition magic program, and you will need a regular XP disc in order to reload the system. The partition magic was another one of Microsoft's great and brilliant, going to change the future programs that came out hard, and die out in the same manor (hard).

Internet explorer being constantly shut down and being knocked off line ,also I am unable to go to system restore successfully.


Hello

The system restore component in windows is mostly flawed and causes more problems than it fixes.

If you must restore to the point of purchase use the windows installation disk or system restore disk that came with your pc.
