You need to enter your bios (setup at boot) and make sure that the cd drive is at the top of the boot sequence before it can start from cd.

I need to reset a Toshiba A105 to factory settings it will not hardly run as is very slow


If you mean reformat that is possible. Just make sure you back up your drivers. You should also have a Windows operating system CD.
YOu can also perform system restore which will restore your computer to an earlier date.
System restore options is found under accessories and then system tools.


Cheers,

Toshiba satellite A105,My wife dropped laptop now when you try to start I get error message operating system not found, try to boot to bios and get several quick beeps


Harddrive has probably crashed or the connection have become loose. Flip the laptop over and look for the Harddrive assembly. Usually has 1 screw holding it in place. If you feel comfortable enough - remove the screw and pull the HD out and slide it back into place. See if the connections are simply loose.. If that does not work you probably need to replace the HD.

I would like to reset my computer to the day I bought it.


OK, you need to locate to system CDs that came with your laptop. One of them will be disc 1 or operating system or Windows CD. Insert into the CD ROM drive. Power up laptop and when "Press any key to boot CD.." is displayed, press any key on the keyboard. If this message doesn't display, then the CD will boot and just follow the on-screen messages to install your OS. If your laptop doesn't boot the CD, then you need to go into your BIOS and set the CD-ROM drive as the 1st boot device. Follow on-screen messages during boot-up to enter your BIOS or try pressing the DEL or F1 or F2 or F12 key while powering up your computer. If you do not have the system CDs, then you need to call Toshiba and order them.

My Toshiba satlelite A105 will not boot up , comes up on screen black says pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable pxe-mof: exiting intel boot agent operating system not found


Go into SETUP (F2, DEL, Cntl-S or somesuch at boot time - or hold F1 key down and force and error and then change your BOOT order to CDROM, HDD. It is Currently NETWORK, CDROM, HDD or the like.

PXE is Network directed bootup, and your LAN connection is waiting or the proper code or instruction or server. You need to turn that off, and BIOS SETUP is where to do it ;-)

Hope that helps

Cd rom not working


Let’s determine if your CD-ROM drive or your Operating System Software ( ie...Windows XP) is the problem.
You will need a bootable CD, you can use your “Dell Resource” CD or any other bootable CD disk.
Power on the laptop and tap the F12 key to get to the “Boot Selection Menu”. Insert the DELL “Resource CD” into the CD-ROM drive. Select “Boot from CD/DVD drive” from the selection menu.
If the laptop boots from the CD drive then you Operating System Software is the problem.

If the laptop won’t boot from CD then your CD-ROM is defective and needs to be replaced.
