You will need to go to the Toshiba WEB site, to the support/download page, search for the video driver for Windows XP for your model laptop and install it on your laptop. There may be several version, download the latest.

No video output from atapi dvd rw after OS reinstall, cd rw ok


>> VGA controller (vga compatible) error in the device manager

Windows has not found a "good" device-driver for the "integrated" video-controller on your motherboard; it is using the "generic" adapter.

So, trying to download the "SIS Mirage Graphics" software is an attempt by Windows to download a "specific" device-driver that matches your video-adapter hardware.

You might try installing an add-in video-card, to see if Windows will install the correct device-driver, and still boot-up correctly.

Otherwise, take the computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting about your boot-up problem.

Bootmgr is missing


Run a Chkdsk:
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Chkdsk C: /R


OR:


Perform an XP repair:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

MISSING SOFTWEAR FROM COMPUTER


Go to Lenovo's support site on another unit, enter the model of your unit (it's on the bottom of the laptop) and download the drivers for the items XP didn't have drivers for.
It's not uncommon these days to have very few drivers provided by the operating system.
No worries.
Good luck
