SOURCE: Can you tell me how

I don't know what a toshiba is, but if it has a windows operating system it will adjust the amount automatically. it stands for Random Access Memory and it requires just enough to run your system and programs installed. If it is too low Windows will adjust it automatically, if it's too high it will do the same. the RAM varies accordingly to each computer. If you go messing with that dude, RAM is going to be the least of your worries. Ha Ha.

SOURCE: i want to format then reinstall the os

The best way to do this is to prepare well ahead of time by making a Slipstreamed SP3 cd to aid in the installation. This will save you days updating the service packs and security patches from Microsoft that you'll have to do if you use your original install cd. You can learn how to do this by reading Slipstream SP3 and EG Slipstream XP

Windows is corrupted , Since you have no idea what software/malware caused that it will be extremely difficult to fix it blindly.
The best way then is to reinstall, Go into Safe Mode and recover all your files then boot from your recovery disk and during the install procedure, select the Full Format option.

Reinstall windows xp pro


How far through the setup does it get?
Have you done a full format on the HDD?
Does the HDD detect in the BIOS? Is it a confirmed working drive.

How do you uninstall windows xp pro to the previous version?


If the copy of Windows XP Pro you have installed is already registered/verified as having been previously installed, you have three options:

1. Call Microsoft and purchase a COA (Cert of Auth) for your copy. This will get you a new "key" and will allow your copy to verify.

2. Simply buy a copy. If it's unavailable in a local store, search Google with something like, "Buy Windows XP Pro" for places to buy (I like Amazon.com for things like this, because one is perhaps slightly more likely to buy a REAL copy. :-))

3. Ditch Windows entirely. Have a computer savvy friend go to http://www.ubuntu.com and download/burn a copy of Ubuntu 8.04. Pop it into your CD drive and install a fully-working operating system, web browser (Firefox) and Email Client (Evolution--the equivalent of a full version Outlook). A full office suite and multimedia apps are included. Free. If you do not have a tech-savvy friend to ask, go to the website and request to have an installation CD sent to you for FREE.

I want to rmove Vista from Toshiba pro l40 laptop and replace with xp pro butif I try to boot from xp pro cd it eventually gives me blue error screen. How can I remove Vista?


It is not recommended because everything that is Vista Compatable, isn't XP compatable. However, if you are sure that you want to remove Vista, look up UBCD and download it to an ISO. Then enable boot from CDROM first. Within that CD will give you options of removing an operating system what-so-ever by the use of A Hard Disk "WIPING"(formatting) tool. Good Luck
