SLOW loading pgs., system tray error(navigation is unidentified.)
My computer is barely crawling! Won't hardly load pages & displays a
''navigation is unidentified'' message in the system tray. And most of the time says page is done with error. Barely can load my gmail, & I can't retrieve it. I have ran scans in my avg, spybot,& in
Windows Defender. Shows no viruses or spyware present. Updates for Winows, AVG, & Spybot, are all current up through today. Please can you tell me what I can do? I'm giving you my daughter's email address
here in my details since I can't get my mail. Please send me an email there as well: email@example.com

Step 1: You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key but will differ depending on your computer and Bios. Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system. Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd\dvd.
Just like other computers, your Toshiba laptop may start failing to boot the operating system completely, or may fail to boot up at all. Boot problems are caused by virus infections and issues related to hardware and software. With the proper troubleshooting techniques, boot problems can be remedied to get the laptop into good working condition.
1. Perform initial hardware checks. Ensure that the laptop has enough battery life to boot up. Charge the laptop using its AC adapter and then try to boot the laptop again. If nothing happens, plug the AC adapter into another power outlet. If this does not help, check to see if external drives (flash drive, external hard drive, etc.) are connected into one of your USB ports. Unplug it from the laptop and press the laptop's power button. If the laptop powers on but fails to load the operating system, proceed to the next step.
2. Ensure that the hard disk is not disabled in the boot sequence in your BIOS. Otherwise, the laptop will fail to fully boot the operating system. Reboot the computer and press a key that will lead you to the BIOS page. Set your hard disk as your "first boot priority," or first in the "boot sequence." Note that the steps on loading the BIOS as well as navigating throughout the BIOS pages will depend on what brand of BIOS is installed in your laptop.
3. Choose boot to the "Last known good configuration" if you get an error page before the operating system boots up. If after choosing this option the computer reboots again, choose "Start Windows Normally," if this is in the list of options.
4. Consider repairing or reinstalling the operating system if the computer still fails to boot after the steps above. Repairing the operating system will retain your current data and settings. Reinstalling the operating system means reformatting or deleting all data in your computer and installing a fresh copy of the operating system.
I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards from fixya
If you bought a new hard drive (meaning the internal hard disk), it won't have anything on it. If you just install it and try booting your computer, there won't be an operating system to load. The BIOS (the operating system built into the motherboard) is set up to try loading the operating from connected devices in a certain order. Usually it tries the optical drive first, then the hard drive, and finally it tries to boot over a network connection. The media test failure message means it tried that last resort and still didn't find an operating system, and it's telling you that maybe you have a bad network cable.
You'll need to reinstall your operating system and applications so that the computer will start normally. If your computer came with a restore disc set, or you made a set yourself, you'd use those. If you don't have restore discs, you can do a fresh installation of Windows from CD. You need to find the disc for the version that came installed on your computer, since you'll need to use the product key from the sticker on the bottom. Drivers and utility programs you can download from Compaq's (HP, actually) support and drivers website.
Once you've got a bootable Windows system on the new drive, you won't get that strange message any more.
First you should check if there is any disk on your cd room, if there is any disk you should remove the disk from the cd room, if there is no disk the possibility is your hard drive getting error Press f2 or delete to enter your bios set up system Look for boot menu Set the first boot as a HDD and the second boot as cd room and disable the third boot Save and Exit the setting if your computer still won't load you need to reinstall your windows insert windows cd and go to set up again by pressing f2 or delete button Set the first boot as cd room then the second boot as HDD Save and exit the setting again When the message press any key to boot from cd appears you should press the space bar or another key Then just follow the instruction of formatting
This error means the operating system on the hard disk couldn't load due to possible faulty hard drive or disk controller. The fault could also mean the hard drive needs reseating to make proper connection. Reseat the hard drive and if you still get this error, then you need to determine if the disk controller is faulty.
To do this, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this hard drive as an external drive and you can also see the contents of the drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is a faulty disk controller. If the computer cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.
Then get a new hard drive insert it into youe laptop and install Windows to get your laptop operatioal.
try to exit any unwanted program on the system tray, cause these programs are eating too much memory that makes your computer go slow,
on your computer do click on start then on the run slot type msconfig then run it after that go to the startup then uncheck unwanted programs to load on start up be aware though not to uncheck windows components this may give you an error upon start up.
I give you some steps for repair hard drives please follow all the steps very carefully :
REPAIR Hard drive - THROUGH CHEKDISK command. ------------------------------------------------------ Step One: Open "My Computer", RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties".
Step Two: When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error
Step Three: When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now".
Step Four: A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer. Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished, it will restart into Windows automatically.
Click on start >> Programms >>accessories >> System tools >> Defrag
Defrag your hard drive >> This may take some time.
After this system would be slow for couple of hours and then would be efficient.
please open your antivirus and do a complete scan and fix the errors.
Pls rate this solution according to its use in you. it will be much appreciated........
if this is one of those special Toshiba's with the bios/cmos on the hard drive you're in a world of pain. Can you access the bios at all? Can you see the hard drive or what can you see if you can get in the bios? I could be wrong- but if you can't get into the bios you may have a corrupt hard drive- and need another one- or the motherboard could be bad, or the ram might be bad too.
Try starting with the getting into the bios- and see what you can find out...
