Hi there
The problem is that the #2 recovery cd is probably corrupt and unreadable, before you come to this decision take out the memory modules, clean them & reseat them and try the install again, if you get the same error and your pc is still under warranty get in touch with the pc manufacturer and the should send you replacement recovery cd's at no cost to yourself

Kind regards and please don't forget to rate us

    Hi again
    The best way to clean the contacts is with a pencil eraser, use a dry clean paint brush to also clear any dust away from the memory slots also (don't forget to brush any residue left behind by the eraser on the memory)

    Hi again
    Yes you can install from a new install cd, although i don't think the problem is the hard drive, Averatec you replace your recovery cd's for you

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7

Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.


  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

Installed the restore cds they dont have any instruction manual

Glad to HELP YOU!

To RESTORE your system as it was out from the factory (if I got it right...) and if you have the RESTORING CDs you have to do like this:

### insert the first CD (if are many) in the tray ###
1. RESTART your machine
2. when the LOGO SCREEN appears press F8 or F10 or F11 (it depends on each brand) and select the BOOTING MEDIA - in your case the CD MEDIA/DVD MEDIA
4. follow the instructions as they will appear on your screen
5. let the machine reinstall its system

You're done!

So save on an external hard drive or on some DVDs your precious files.

My best wishes!

When turned on it show black screen and automaticaly shutdown


Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, disconnect all cables. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

It's also possible that your Master Boot Record is corrupted. To fix:

2. When prompted, boot from the CD drive by pressing any key. If Windows loads automatically, you will first have to enter the BIOS setup and change the order of the boot devices to start with the CD drive.
3. Once the setup loads, you will see the option to press R to repair a Windows installation.
4. Once the Recovery Console loads up, you will have to type in a number that corresponds to your Windows installation. This is normally just 1. Press Enter and then type in the Administrator password.
5. Now at the prompt, type in fixmbr. Your damaged MBR will now be replaced with a new master boot record and your computer should now be able to boot properly. Also run the fixboot command to repair the boot sector with a new one.

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

I was just on my ibm t43 and it froze so i manually turned it off now it wont turn back on. it acts like it is going to then it pops up a screen that say an problem has been detected

Hello, Meagan.

Sounds like an operating system problem.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

How do i restore to factory settings for my hp pavilion zt3000 without the cds

There's basically no such thing as "restore to factory settings" when it comes to PCs.
You can restore the BIOS setup to factory defaults, but it's rather improbable that something got messed up there.
To have the system like it was fresh out of the factory, you have to wipe your hard disk and install the operating system (Windows in this case) anew on the hard drive, and for that you need the system reinstallation CD. Then you need to reinstall all the computer-specific drivers and bundled applications that came with your computer. For that you really need at least your Windows CD, the drivers etc. can be downloaded from manufacturer's support websites.
And then all the system updates that appeared for your Windows version over time need to be installed as well.

Windows dont start

Averatec is famous for not supporting their laptops after they sell them. If your system is giving missing files after a full restore, it's possible you've got some bad hardware. Try running a memory test by downloading memtest86+, and burning it to a cd. It will need to run overnight. If you've got bad ram, replace it. You can also test your hard drive by downloading the support softare for your specific brand of hard drive. Maxtor used the maxblast, western digital used powermax, and hitachi/ibm uses another, but I can't remember the name. Try those, and let me know.

Want to restore my computer back to factory settings and wipe my hard drive clean i am having to many problems wiht my computer i have a averatec 77100 series

Not sure which Windows version you have, ie. 98, XP, Vista...

Have you tried reinstalling or repairing Windows from your Windows installation CD?
Make you have the product key issued with CD otherwise you will not be able to reinstall.

Other options are:
Have you created a previous backup using a 3rd party backup software?
Have you created a startup disk?

You should conider any steps that enable you to reverse what you do.
