You need to boot from an installation CD for the operating system, or the Toshiba restore set. New hard drives are completely blank when you purchase them. The computer is looking for something to boot from and cant find it, so it trys to boot from ethernet. Check your bios set up for boot order and boot devices. You might try disabling boot from network.
Hi blackrose696. There's 2 ways. 1.- If you go to My Computer and see a partition (probably D:) called recovery, go to Start - All Programs - and see if you see under Toshiba - something called recovery or restore (you WILL loose ALL your data) and follow the instruction. If you DO see the partition but you dont see anything under Toshiba folder, then restart the computer and inmediately you will see something like Press F10 or F12 to boot from recovery partition.
If you dont see the recovery partition. The only way is using the Restore CDs... if you dont have those you have to order them from the Toshiba website. (they cost like $15) so that way you are sure you get the license and the drivers correctly. I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback from our support today. Thank you :D
Put the original restore CD into the drive and restart the computer. It will then go into a "restore mode" and allow you to erase everything and start it over like it was brand new again. If you don't have the restor CD then you could use any copy of a Windows Operating System (XP, VISTA, 7) to reset it all
it depends on your operating system your using ex. windows xp pro,windows 98SE,vista,linux,ubunto...in xp click start-all programs-accessories-system tools-system restore from their choose a restore point to an earlier time before that problem occurs
Registry edits not usually a good idea. System restore is your friend. Some DVD burning apps will change your registry and cause the CD/DVD to disappear. Uninstall the new burning app, or system restore to a time you know it was working.
What I would suggest is logging on in safe mode and trying to restore it to an earlier date using system restore. likely the profile is corrupted. By doing a restore back about 4 to 7 days , or before this started happening, will likely fix your issue. If not you will have to purchase the restore cd from toshiba or restoring it from a recovery partition if it has one.
You can try a system restore, ie you can take back your computer to a date when it was working fine .
Running system restore in windows Xp:
Start >All Programs> Accessories >System Tools >System restore
Running system restore in Vista
Start> write "system restore in start search bar "> click system restore
