Loading XP back on isn't the problem, it will be the chipset drivers that you will need for your onboard graphics, sound etc... before you format and load XP back onto your laptop contact Toshiba for the chipset drivers for your laptop.

If XP is causing you problems, why no repair the verison you already have on there? If you put the XP disk in when given the choice to press enter to install or 'R' for repair. Press R. It will replace any corrupted files to your system with new ones.

I hope this helps.

Toshiba A60 equiam will not boot from original recovery disk


Try reseating the RAM modules and then try the recovery CD.
If it still fails, take the RAM modules out and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM.

It is not clear what you mean by restore here... do you want to salvage you r personal data on laptop or just want to restore the OS... which you said you have installed XP.
the copied recovery disc may not be booting for various reasons...
1.not set to boot fromcd drive in bios settings.
2. cd copy was not cd to cd copy or it was not made bootable. maybe you just copied the data of the friends recovery disc.

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.

I am in need to install recovery console


Here's How:
Boot From the Windows XP CD

To enter Recovery Console in Windows XP, you will need to boot from the Windows XP CD.
  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
Press R to Enter Recovery Console

When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.

Choose the Windows Installation

The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.

Enter the Administrator Password

The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis.
To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.

Make Necessary Changes in Windows XP Recovery Console

The Recovery Console is now fully loaded and the cursor should be sitting at the command prompt, ready for input, as shown in the screen shot above.
Make any changes necessary in the Windows XP Recovery Console. When complete, take out the Windows XP CD and type exit to restart the computer.

  1. When you reach the command prompt (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.
    bootcfg /rebuild
  2. The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.
  3. The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  4. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
  5. The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
    Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
  6. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Installing drivers after reformating hard drive


Well, can you use the system you wrote this post on to access Toshiba's support site, download the drivers for the M35, and tranfer them via flash drive or cd or usb? That would be best, given the information at hand. You don't have to use the actual system in question to download drivers. Good luck
