Where can i find a recovery disc for this computer


Hi,

According to Gateway, you can request a Recovery CD here, but if you are out of warranty it will cost you.

But the Gateway website has all the drivers available for the SD4 here, so if you can get windows installed onto it, you can install the drivers one by one..

Also, here is the main SD4 webpage if you need any more documentation, etc.

How to re install xp on laptop toshiba satellite 1715-s173


Either get a fresh copy of XP with sp3 on it (microsoft doesnt't support anything before that now) and boot off cd and follow the instructions till done. Or use the recovery/operating system disc your laptop came with if you have it and reload your computer. You'll probably have another disc with the drivers for your hardware (network adaptors, etc.) in the computer. Make sure you reload drivers for anything you added and make sure you have installation discs for any programs you added and want to keep. When using the manufacturer's disc your computer will be just like it was fresh outta the store. Including the junkware that was on it (offers, AOL, trial anti-virus, etc.). If you can find a legitimate copy of XP SP3 (I bought one and kept it for later) you can load xp only onto your computer (junkware free) and start totally fresh for real. Install your software and away you go! Be sure to put firewall on before going on internet!

I have come across a similar problem when restoring a Dell laptop with Windows Vista. There is an option on the recovery disk to install drivers. Some computers that have SATA harddrives need the driver loaded before you can load the O/S back onto the computer.

Once I did this, it sailed right thru installation.

Put your Windows disc in the disc drive.
Tap F12 when the computer is starting up.
Select load from disc.
Install Windows.
It seems to be the only solution to your problem.
Hopefully, you made a partition and saved your files onto there, or onto an external hard drive to prevent data loss.

How do i restore my toshiba laptop with the recovery cd, where can i get the recovery cd


Recovery CD is saved as a recovery partition on the system, which needs to be written/burn onto the CD/DVD.
Steps to create a recovery disc (Insert a blank DVD in the CD/DVD rom) -
1. Click Start
2. Select All Programs
3. Select Recovery Disc Creator.
Recovery Disk Creator
4. Within the Recovery Disc Creator select Create

If you dont have the above options, you need to call the tech support and ask for the recovery disc & it will be shipped to you.

I dont have recovery CD for my laptop


Being that you don't have the recovery cd, I would probably do the following (in this order):

1. Do a System Recovery (go to Start > Help and Support > type in System Recovery in the search field > look for Run System Recovery Wizard)

2. If the above didn't fix my problem, then I would try to determine if it was a hardware issue (bad RAM, fan, processor, etc) or if it was definitely a software issue (operating system is kaput, virus, etc...)

3. Contact Toshiba and find out how much it would cost to get another Recovery CD.

4. If it costed more than $100 dollars (and you're a little computer inclined) then I would buy myself a fresh Windows XP Home Edition OEM version (runs about $90 if not less)

BUT... before sticking in that cd, make sure that you download the device drivers or back up your device drivers for your system (network driver, graphics drivers, chipset drivers).. once you've backed up those things onto a cd or disk, then I would go ahead and put in a fresh copy of Windows XP and reformat the computer.

Once thats done, you can put in that back cd you made and have the computer find the drivers on your disc when it says "New Hardware Found..." and just make sure you have it search your disc drive.

IF it doesn't cost much to get a Recover CD from Toshiba, then by all means, get it and put that bad boy in. Of course, when formatting anything, back up your files that you need (address book, documents, etc) and then reformat with the CD.
