I WANT TO FORMAT MY TOSHIBA PORTEGE 7200CT LAPTOP TO WINDOW XP.HOWEVER,I DO NOT KNOW TO TO FORMAT


The instructions for this procedure are quite involved if you are talking about formatting and reinstalling the laptop operating system software. You need to have these things:
A Legitimate copy of the Operating system software on an official microsoft release CD that is bootable. Then you go to the bios in the startup usually by pressing the delete key while laptop is booting. then go to the boot proiority list and make sure the cd drawer is in the first option. Reboot the computer and then when the option to boot from cd comes up, press any key and it will boot from the cd.
Once the installation options appear, you need to select the hard disk to use and then select the format and install Windows XP. Select format using NTFS filing system and then the process starts to format the drive and install the file need to complete setup.
Once the GUI portion of set up installs and you have logged in for the first time, don't forget to change the boot priority back to the hard disk!
Hope this helps :D

Installing Windows XP OS from CD


I have been installing XP on Portege M200 laptops.
I use a usb floppy to install the latest bios update from Toshiba's support site.
After the update the laptop will boot from a USB Cd/DVD drive.
be patient the first part of the up date goes extreamly slowly but it seems to keep working and the install will work.

Boot win98


I'm assuming that you mean that the computer itself has no CD or no Floppy drive.
If there is no operationg system, and no way to actually install one, then you are out of luck.
There are external CD drives, but these normally run within Windows--although your computer may allow for their use on startup.
If your computer is new enough and you can enable legacy USB, then you could theoretically copy a Win98 install CD to the USB drive and boot from that.
If you have an operating system installed and your network is running, you can share a CD on another computer and run the setup from that computer by copying the files across the network.

Toshiba Portege Video problem


I found the same problem on one that I bought from a guy for $100. He had been picking it up by the screen and every connector in the screen and the pivot came loose. I was able to tighten every thing back up and now I have a real nice laptop.

Bootable cd / dvd


one possible way around is to copy the entire cd (make a new folder named "CD COPY" or similar) to your hard drive (assuming you have enough space...about 800 Mb), then run the install from setup.exe from the hard drive, then delete the copy (to make room) when you are done.
