Laptop worked fine then shut it down turned it on again & TOSH screen appeared but then screen went black and a blue box came on saying Enter Current P'word. when i did that the laptop turned off.

Last time you used the computer you did something wrong. Of course, computer said nothing but it reared its ugly head when you restarted it! Computers are treacherous - they bite you when you least expect it - women are more predictable.

See if you can boot up by hitting the F8 key and selecting " last setup that worked" option. Do you have restore disks? If so use them to go back and possibly repair the OS. Also check with Toshiba for any other options. If nothing you just might have to reload the unit from scratch using the restore disks. If you never made them as advised then you are really scr--d. Either you buy the disks from Toshiba or you borrow some friends)S disks and do the deed.

Just downloaded windows 10 on 2326s and when I start the computer after I log into conputer, windows just flashes. How can I restore back to factory settings?

Use the restore disks that came with your computer. If you upgraded to 10 and it went bad, you are screwed since the damage has already been done and there is no going back.

And if you do not have the restore disks you can always go the manufacturer's support on web and order the disks. OR, just install the OS from scratch without any of the software you had initially.

Error 0x400110020000100A after hard drive replacement

One of your self-created disks may have an error. I recommend that you contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain system reload/restore disks directly from them. Often, depending on manufacturer, these are free or very low cost, such as cost+shipping ~$15-$25.

I have an acer aspire AST180 UA381B and I need the system restore disks but they do not carry them anymore. What can I do?

I would suggest you install Linux Mint 10, a free operating system.

Without the restore disks,you would have to buy a new Windows CD. Have a friend burn an ISO image of Linux Mint. Just go to, and there are lots of helpful tips there on how to install. Linux Mint has a similar feel to Windows, so it should be good!

I have a 2002 Dell, with windows xp and i want to completly restore it but i have no Cd to restore it, does any1 know if i can just manually restore to the day i bought it?

You can look for a D:\drive. that has the factory disks located there. After restore, you should create system restore disks..Manufacturers stopped shipping restore disks, putting that task on the new owners.

Hitachi 0A59577 320 gb disk drives reporting high pending and reallocated sectors causes system to crash.Vibration 10-200mz

> high pending and reallocated sectors

The electronics inside the disk-drive is encountering "bad" spots on the surface of the disk-drive, and is attempting to allocate some of the "spare" parts of the disk-drive as substitutes for the "bad" parts.

But, it is running-out of "spare" areas to deploy.

What this means is that YOUR DISK-DRIVE IS ABOUT TO FAIL.
Buy an external disk-drive, or buy a bunch of CD-writable or DVD-writable disks, and make a BACKUP copy of your files (E-mail, music),
while you still can access your current disk-drive.

Then, buy a new "internal" hard-drive, and reinstall Windows (you *DO* have the "System Restore" disks, correct?) onto the new disk-drive, and restore your files from your backup.

If your current disk-drive is still under manufacturer's warranty, then exercise the warranty, to get a free replacement. But, make sure that you have copied all your data from the disk-drive *BEFORE* you send it to the manufacturer, because they will take *NO* responsibility for trying to "recover" any of your files.

Computer wont cut on

You can contact your computer's manufacturer and do one of a few things. You can tell them that you have lost your OS, and you have no system restore disks, and request them to send them to you. or you can also ask them which button are you supposed to press to do a factory resetting system restore. You other option is to buy a Operating System disk, reformat your hard drive, and reinstall your operating system. If I were you, I would just get the restore disks from your system's manufacturer, and reinstall everything using them; That is free, and the cheapest way possible.

Restore disks

Alot of manufactures will include restore disks with the pc. However if you don't have them anymore you will need to order them from the manufacture either on-line or over the phone. Hope this helps.
