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.

TRUE or FALSE You should be able to look at a DOS absolute path and be able to find the file in Windows


True. As long as Windows is loaded as well. In the old days you could load DOS without Windows.

Windows not loading, screen saver works!


Try restarting in safe mode by hitting the F8 key during the boot.

You now have the option of:

  • Disabling startup programs from loading in the first place. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically.
  • Use System Restore and rolling back to a earlier date. It can be found in help. F1 key loads help.
  • Uninstalling problem software. Usually the last thing installed prior to problem.

How do I wipe my hard drive clean and restore it to the way it was when I purchased it


If you have the original disc drive installed (and the original OS), try pressing F9 repeatedly after turning on the computer. (Sometimes, it can be hard to get the timing right - the button press needs to be seen after the POST and before Windows loads. If you see Windows starting to load, let it finish loading and then shut down the computer and try again.)

This will access the recovery partition and reformat the computer and restore the machine to the factory state. Follow the on-screen directions and make sure that you have saved your personal data elsewhere.

However, if your computer has the ASUS boot booster, you will need to disable this feature to access the recovery program. Try pressing F2 or Delete (depending on your machine) to enter the BIOS with the same timing as the above use of F9. Then find the option to Disable the boot booster. Then press the F9 key on another start up cycle. My ASUS computer doesn't have this feature so I'm not sure where it may be in the BIOS (if on your computer).

Asus offers a WinPE wipe and recovery option for some of their computers that can be put on a USB flash drive. http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20091019013723218&board_id=20&model=Eee+PC+1005HA&page=1&SLanguage=en-us has the procedure for one of their other models.

I hope this helps.

Is there another way to have my T3500 run in safe mode other than F8...When I press F8 while my computer is booting up it gives me a blank screen.


If you stop windows from booting up all the way by holding down the power button during the "loading windows" screen, until it turns off. Start it back up and before windows loads it will give you a menu, with options like "start windows in safe mode with networking" or "safe mode with command prompt"

I have a medion computer approx 10years old and am hoping to load it with windows 7 but on trying to load this the computer says the proccesor needs changing can you tell me if this should be possible...


There is no way to run windows 7 on this computer. The hardware is just too old.

On the other hand, if you're used to this one, you can buy a new one with Windows 7 preloaded for under $400 (even at WalMart!) and it will work much better than the ten year old computer. Since Windows 7 costs about $100 just by itself, you can move up for only about $300 overall.

Help with a toshiba TECRA 8100


Yes, it should run WinXP. The minimum system requirements to run both Windows XP Home and Professional are 233Mhz, 64Mb RAM and 1.5GB hard drive space. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 that still runs XP, a little slow, but has run smoothly for 5 years.

The setupdd.sys error is most likely a due to a defective hardware like RAM. Try installing only one ram if you have two to see if either one is defective; it should work for most users.

CPU Upgrade


You pulled the processor out of your laptop ... that was a brave move ... generally laptop boards are fully integrated so there is very few options on changing the processor ... also because of the extreme heating conditions the heat sink bonding is very critical ... make sure you replace this properly or you will have overheating issues in the future ...
