Question about Toshiba Satellite A6653DV LED TruBrite 156Inch Laptop PSAW3U042001 PSAW3U042001 PC Notebook
Hard drive failure. Installed OS from recovery Disc to new hard drive. All worked well to start with. Hoever when installing software the wifi and light button stop working. Also cannot excess wifi with the F8 button message use switch to turn on wifi. I've used recovery 4 times with backup between install software to determine what might be causing the problem, however the problem is ramdom. I thinking it could be windows 7 update in the background causing the problem

If you run a repair with the recovery disc you won't lose any info. The only time you'll lose the info is if you run a complete reload. Run the system disc until it gets to the point of finding installed operating systems, at this point instead of deleting the partition, press R and it will reinstall the operating system files only leaving other installed files and programs intact. Keep in mind that many times when this happens, it's a hard drive failure. If it is a hard drive failure, then you will have to replace the hard drive and you will lose the info, sorry.

Windows XP does have RAID drivers, but it really doesn't have anything to do with this problem. Try a bios flash with either updated bios version, if any, or the original bios. Your problem is much deeper that a hard drive or operating system. Your problem is in the motherboard, if the bios flash doesn't do it, then the motherboard may need to be replaced. Take it to a tech and have them run down the exact problem.

Did you know you only get ONE shot at creating a recovery disc? And most of the time it is garbage, just like Vista.
He tried to put XP on it and failed? weird.
A couple things you can do...
1. Get your hands on a Vista disk. If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow a Vista disk. Do a complete fresh install. Use your "Product Key" and you will have your own Licensed, perfectly legal version of Vista.
2. Get yourself a copy of XP. Delete all partitions, then create a new one. Don't try to save that Vista recovery partition...it's toast. I recommend XP, but I'm a dinosaur.
If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow
