Back when the 720CDT came out (1996) the whole concept of recovery discs didnt even exist. If you want to restore the 720cdt the best way to go is to either hunt down a copy of Windows 98 or Windows 95.

The proper audio driver which Windows 98 will not include is on toshiba's site.

You are missing A Driver for the USB Port, that didn't get installed By you're New OS. Go to the Laptops Manufacturer web site and Look for Diagnostic Tools for You're Machine.It Will Give You a List of All Drivers that are not Loaded for You're machine, as Shipped from the Factory.Follow the Steps to load and install . And You should Be fine. Remember to run you're System Tools to Keep you machine running @ Peak .The Correct Drivers are very Machine Specific and Are Not All Generic Like in the Win OS. that will Make Most things run.But the Drivers from the Factory are very Specific Because of the Different Vendor parts installed By the Factory, And Windows will only cover very Generic Software to get you're machine running.Since they cannot Cover All Vendor Part software on 1 little disk.

I have an old Presario 1700 running windows 2000 professional. It hasn't been used in at least 3 yrs. My daughter loaded a password, and now can't remember it. We don't have the restore disc anymore...


If you can not remember the windows password, the the only way to get into the the system is to reinstall windows 2000, you may find a retail versions at a software of computer store, or even a copy from a friend that no longer uses this version, The setup program ask you 1. if you want to do fresh install or just 2. restore system files saving you current configuration files and keeping the system intact choose this the latter option and all files on the system will still be there but windows files will be freshed allowing you to choose a new passord .

How can I check the sound card on a Tecra 720CDT


If you are using windows XP, right click on the My Computer ICON and choose manage, then drill down to device manager, and see if there is a yellow !  over the sound card, if so you will need to download thedriver from Toshiba's website for your model, just google Toshiba drivers and you will get the page.
Hope this helps, if so please rate accordingly, David
