Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Because of nasty virus infection,toshiba s1800-911 was formated using xp pro bootable cd.But as startup files were loaded to the point of starting windows, the laptop just went off with no warning signs. I repeated the process again but it goes off much earlier at the point loading boot files. Everything else is just fine. Can someone help??
Sounds like you have a problem with your power adapter, battery and or charge port ... I would suggest you let the unit "charge" overnight and try again.

Tips for a great answer:
Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.
Create MS-DOS bootable diskette
When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.
1. Place diskette in the computer.
2. Open My Computer, right-click the A: drive and click Format.
3. In the Format window, check Create an MS-DOS startup disk.
4. Click Start
Create Windows XP Setup diskettes
Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.
hope this helps
