My system is asking me to search for a genuine microsoftware.


If your system came with a reinstall disc than I would try to reinstall the system disc again. Maybe some of your programs were affected by a virus or deleted by mistake. There is a file missing somewhere that is needed to authenticate the booting of your system file.

If you have simply deletd then it might have caused the loss of some system files too there first of all you should get a disc of windows Xp sp2 and after inserting it in the drive type "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) in the command prompt and then reinstall the sound driver this will fix te problem.

I just bought a toshiba satellite 5005-s504 on ebay it was shipped to me and all programming has been deleted I need to reload windows xp how do I do this I have a disc for windows xp but the laptop will...


When the computer starts to boot up does it ask you to boot to CD/DVD?
1. If so put the xp disc in the drive and turn on the power when it asks you to boot to CD/DVD press any key. This will start the installation process.
2. If it does not ask you to boot to CD/DVD you will have to go into Bios and change the boot priority to boot to disk drive first. save the settings and do the first step over again

From the above it appears as if you attempted to reinstall the operating system using the recovery discs. Given this you should attemtp this again and make sure that you re-format your harddrive before installing the Operating System again. If you are installing xp again the following link will walk you through the steps.
Basically boot from the cd and re-install windows making sure to delete the existing partition step 5 is critical.
