Cannot run the Restart disk

When i run the restart disk, it says press F1 = Ok, so then the next screen says press C if it is ok to restart, the the computer shuts down and i have to run through the process again. It never progresses to the actual restarting part...

Unusual case?

Thanks,

    What about the attaching the external hardrive and such? Step by step instructions please :)



    When i boot the computer without the restore disk, it says:

    Please re-instal the following:

    /system32/ntoskrnl.exe



    Any ideas?

  • Drumsrus Nov 01, 2008

    My apologies,



    I'm new to this site, and did not know of the ratings. (I neglected to see your comments about the ratings until you said last)



    Would you mind answering a couple of questions?



  • Drumsrus Nov 02, 2008

    No problem



    I have read that you can install the windows xp cd to re-install the operating system. Do you think this might work in my situation?



    How about this one on ebay:

Its MBR is get corrupt. which can not be easily rectified. (with a Startup /Recover disk)

You need to attach an External Hard disk which should be loaded with windows. Make it master after removing jumper.

Once you boot it with and then download the MBR for your OS. Let me know the status uptothis.

Click on "Finish" after the computer has concluded the factory restoration. b> Restore on an HP b> Insert the HP recovery disk. Restart the computer, and press the "F11" key. Press the "F" key to "reinstall factory settings." If your computer's operating system is damaged, you may only see "perform a full system recovery" as an option. In this case, press "R."

How to factory rest


  • Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.
  • Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.
  • Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."
  • Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.
  • Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.
  • Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.
The hard disk drive restore utility is saved on a separate partition on the Toshiba laptop's hard drive. If that partition has been formatted you won't be able to use the restore utility. If you don't have the operating system recovery disc and the partition has been formatted, you will need to contact Toshiba's customer support to have them send you a new disc.

All of your existing data will be permanently removed from the hard drive when the factory restore process has finished running.

Thinkpad wont get past boot page


Hold down the F1 key, and power on the computer to get into the "Easy Setup".
Change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first, save your settings, then restart the computer and have your Widows CD (or original system restore CD) in the CD player so it will read the CD before the information on the harddrive. If that don't work, replace the harddrive

Brand new notebook .. windows then, screen freeze..acer picture


This may require a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows XP Operating system disk with the correct service pack that the notebook has installed (usually XP SP2).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The XP CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.
