First thing to do here since the computer has a lot of virus is to clean the computer if you can still oig in to the computer better install some good anti virus and anti malware software like Avast and Malwarebytes that can clean the computer systme for virus and malware and that should fix the problem. But if you cannot log in to teh computer the next thing you can do here is to format the computer so it will be clean and reinstall everything back...

    Since you cannot log in anymopre to the computer you need to buy a Windows XP installation CD so you can go ahead and clean the entire computer and it will be fressh with no virus, trojan and other harmful things...

Toshiba satellite C15 C1310 window 10 says to reboot laptop has no disk player how do I reboot


Reboot means to start up the computer operating system from scratch. This can be accomplished by shutting down the machine using the power button and turning the computer back on; or by clicking on the power icon and choosing restart. No disk player would be involved in a reboot action.

How do i test the power button on a toshiba equium l40 laptop


OpenControl Panel, Power settings, Advanced Power settings, change SLEEP to Never, Hibernate to never. Shut down and unplug, if you use mostly on AC, remove battery, your laptop when not in use. It will last longer, if there is a power surge not be damaged, and a reboot every day resets the computer.

I have a HP(1010NR) mini laptop that is full of viruses. How do I reboot the computer?


Reboot means to restart it. If it really "full of viruses" as you say, don't even boot it; buy a new hard drive.

This will remove your viruses but theres a couple of things you can try before this.
Download Malwarebytes Anti-malware from here its free

If you dont already an Anti-virus download and install AVG which is a free one let it update and run a full scan on this aswell.

I need to reboot my toshiba equium l10-300 laptop with no cd


Try starting in safe mode. Hold down oth the control and F8 kays and press power. Do not release Contro & F8 until it starts to beep. Then it shoud start in safe mode. If the computer will not start in safe mode you have a hardware problem. If it starts in safe mode, you have a Windows problem that re-installing Windows will solve that (to a point). Without the Original CD and install code, you have two options. Buy a new OS or.......pirate it. I do not recommend the last.

My comouter asks for a password when trying to reboot. How can I bypass the password?


Try TOSHIBA as the password. It works on most of their laptops. I'm not sure about desktops but it's worth a shot! :) Also try holding ESC while it's booting before the password prompt comes up. That sometimes works too. Good luck!

Toshiba Equium A210 Laptop and the screen keeps on going blank


Hi...I have had the same problem with my A210 laptop as well over the last year.The problem is sporadic and it would just happen out of the blue.My daughter has the same laptop and the same problem.The screen would go blank ,but you could tell the computer was still functioning somewhat in the background.The only way to fix it was to reboot and if you were working on anything it was lost.I also recently had another similar problem.I had the laptop set to go to sleep when i shut the lid.This worked great for a year or so.When i opened the lid the screen would come back on and i could continue using the computer where i left off.But recently when i opened the lid the screen would come back on for a few seconds then go blank ,just like it did as described in the first problem above.Not sure why as i had not changed any settings on my computer.It happened every time i closed the lid then opened it.A pain as had to reboot to get it back.Here is the fix my friend discovered.Click on the ATI icon in the taskbar and open up the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER.Make sure the advanced view is selected.Now choose "display options".Put a dot in "Detect whenever catalyst control center is opened",and leave the other 2 spots unchecked.( I had a dot in these 2 places ). Now apply the changes and close it out. I have had no problems since doing this with the screen going blank.Not sure why this worked ,other then the computer was getting confused along the way and shut off the screen.Just be aware that if you hook your laptop to a TV you will have to revisit the ATI setting and change them back.....Hope this helps...Dan
