Once you format your sytems means, you deleted whole OS so you need to reinstall fresh OS on it.
you supposed to have a recovery disk (it comes alongwith laptop while buying it)
but it depends on what basic OS was there when you bought your Laptop if there was XP then you got XP OS recovery disk if there was vista then you have Vista recovery disk.
if you don't have recovery disk then you need to get new Vista disk from market to install back vista in your laptop.

thank you,

Don't worry. The installation DVD will take care of it.
As soon as you finish reinstalling everything, look into a product called Pc Laptop Guard.
You won't have to format again ever.

ABOUT VISTA


Hey there

When u had purchased ur laptop probably you would have got the OS dvd. If not, then it is definate that you must have been provided assistance for making a recovery disc from their own feasible partition.

And If you have had not made the backup DVD then you must be trying to go to ur dealer and convey ur problem, i think probably they will provide you OS Backup.

Secondly while formatting ur laptop, you must have had aware of not to format the partition unless you made all important data from the partition you are going to format.

Once you formatted the drive you wont be able to recover ur data.
From now beware of above mentioned thing while formatting ur HD drive(s) partition.

Gimme ur acknowledge by rating me.

Thanx

Error -need to re-install the operating system


Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

Glb-502t driver of Dlink compatible with vista


Hi,

The Dlink device came with drivers which works in Windows XP.
I installed vista driver from dlink website, but its of no use, it still doesn't work in Vista.

Well Dlink WORKS BEST in Ubuntu (Linux), without any driver installation. Either USB or LAN.

Use Ubuntu Linux.
