Question about Toshiba Libretto 100CT Notebook

Open Question

Libretto 110ct--loss of command.com

The little jewel was doing fine till I decided to defrag!! It stopped about 24% done and suggested a scandisk. That didn''t show any problen.

I think both my Recovery Boot Disk and Companion Diskette are bad (nor readable) but a message indicates the Command.com is missing or corrupted.

Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

Happy Holidays !!

Internet hookup wiring needed


That a bit vague. Your ISP should supply everything but a Ethernet cable to plug into computer.

Scandisk. Check HDD for SMART problems. chkdsk. Remove old unused programs. Check MSCONFIG for startup items. Use Ccleaner to clean up your computer. Use Malwarebytes Antimalware for malware removal. Defrag your HDD. You can use Auslogics Disk Defrag Screen Saver. Post results please

I want to ad a multi media card reader to download pictures from an SD card


Just plug it into a usb port, and windows will detect it as another drive. If windows doesn't auto detect it, go to My Computer and click on the other drives until you find it. Hope this answers your question.

Will not boot-up, then used safe mode, I got a "stop code"


STOP error 0xED means that the I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. STOP code 0x000000ED may also display "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" on the same STOP message. Problem is with the hard drive
Check this: What MS has to say http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185
Most probably a damaged directory structure. Firs make sure that the hard drive is connected properly. Use your windows cd and boot from it. Go to Repair mode. Type Dir and if it says there is an error accessing the disk. (Directory Enumeration). Type D: (If u have a separate volume er I mean a partition) Type Dir and enter. If it shows the directory list thats fine. Type C: and go their again. (You have to hit enter after typing for every command) Type chkdsk C: or chkdsk /r C: (recommended)
Then it will scan the disk and do the repair. (There is a minimal loss of data if its damaged pretty too much). If you see that it repairs after the process type Dir and hit enter. If you see the directory list then its the time to boot the machine and its all done! If still error is shown type fixboot instead chkdsk Note: If chkdsk command is unavailable type help and hit enter to get a list of commands. Check for scandisk and use it (scandisk c:). Thats for older versions of windows.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Each day my computer seems to run slower and slower.


Run the commands in your Accessories and also don't forget you need to Defrag and run an Anti-Virus software. The proper programs are under Start>All Programs>System Tools>Disk Cleanup and Defrag. When the housekeeping is done, if your computer is still running slow then the best thing you can do is upgrade the amount of RAM. That will make a noticeable difference.

Please rate this solution.

Wont defrag


sounds like you have either a virus or malware affecting your PC - first run scandisk to make sure there are no physical problems with the disk - then download an anti-malware package like spybot S&D - this is free and you may be surprised what it finds on your system!
once this is done try defragging again -alternatively - convert your HD to NTFS and this will not only speed it up but reduce the need to defrag dramatically

hope this helps 8)

Low virtual memory


Virtual memory means you're running out of memory, so it's using your hard drive storage as memory. This is slow. This is an indication you: Have too little memory and need to run fewer programs or install more memory; and also increase the size of your virtual memory, which will also make your disk space tighter. If you are really pinching the computer that badly, you may want to consider buying a new laptop altogether -- the prices have come down a -lot- just in the 2 1/2 years since you bought that. Anyway, to work around the immediate problem:

Your Gateway came with Windows XP Home Edition. Click Start: Control Panels. See if you can find the Performance control panel, possibly by switching to "Classic view." In there, look for the memory tab. Find the virtual memory section. It may be set to "Let Windows decide." change it to at least 1000mb.

You can get a bigger hard drive (after buying an external case to move stuff over) and upgrade your memory to as much as 1.25gb; but you may find those purchases to not be sensible relative to the price of a new laptop. Memory is cheap and relatively easy; the hard drive is more difficult and will set you back at least $100 if you do it yourself.

100Ct


Hi, Depends on what OS you are using. For this particular model (Libretto 100CT), it is probably either Win9X or RedHat (or some Linux variation). In Win9X, you might try F8 & run it in DOS and run: Scandisk c: /autofix /surface; Scanreg /fix If it is beyond repair you have to have access to the OS installer CD. Sometimes Win9X installer is also saved in the HD. Try checking if it is inside your HD and run setup. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. kind regards.
