Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Thank you for your help. You were asking what I meant by "frozen". I think I got a virus and my laptop went from running slow to locking up. I'm ok with doing a full restore and losing my data, but I lost my restore disks. Would you still suggest I take out the internal battery, or something else?
No dont take the battery out. try this. This works on laptops running XP and Vista.
Turn on the laptop, as soon as you turn it on press F8, this will take you to the system install function saved on a hidden drive on your pc.
Once there it will ask you if you want to do a recovery which pretty much sets the computer to settings for an earlier time period or a system restore. THe restore will reformat the hard drive and reinstall the the original software.
Make sure you pick the system restore function to wipe thedrive. It will ask you if u are sure and it will say something about it being a destructive, again that just means that you will have a factory reset computer again, just like new.
Let me know if i can help you thru
