Contact Toshiba with your model number and serial number. Hopefully, you registered the laptop when you bought it.

    nVidia is a scanning program that makes backup copies of your drivers. If they were destroyed, there is nothing to back up.

    Go to this site and download and run this program. It will tell you EXACTLY what's in and on your computer. You can then go to the website that makes your soundcard, and any other devices you're having problems with.

Why do you want to do a destructive reboot? What is the main problem - Viruses
Low level format from the bios or depending on your laptop, by pressing one of the F keys will go into recovery mode. This will wipe everything and reinstall everything.

I believe I have a virus running on my laptop. Every time that I load up my laptop, Windows XP Recovery loads up and says that I have various viruses and problems running on my computer. How can I get rid...

On another computer download ccleaner portable edition and advanced system care portable edition and put them on a usb stick or sd card. Run ccleaner on your laptop to erase undesirable files, then run advanced system care which deeply cleans spyware, malware, registry issues, and security issues. Afterwards, reboot your laptop.

My laptop mouse wont move after i log in it freezes. Everything else works fine. and if i plug in a usb mouse it works but the actually laptop mouse doesnt how do i fix it.?

Hi there,

Do uninstalling the mouse driver of your laptop, restart the unit and let it detect the mouse. When it detect re-install the driver, you may need the driver support cd for this.

Also make sure that there was no virus or any system like error happen on your laptop. Viruses can also cause of this problem and may result for your hardware not to function properly. When your unit boots up to slow this is an indications that there was an error on your system and it needs to be scan for any virus, or better yet you may reinstall again new windows system.

Hope this info/idea helps, kindly let me know for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya.

The computer is freezing in the windows opened, I have installed a "very good anti virus" program, however everytime a "full scan is run" it is full of threats and can I fix the problem?...

Hi, which antivirus do you have?
You may need spyware and malware checkers,2817,2354111,00.asp
These are just a few.
Really when all is said and done you need to wipe the system clean.If you are not bothered about losing stuff then get the original discs out anfd reformat the system and reinstall everything.
People normally get viruses when they download from filesharing sites or from porn site. They get roped into downloading certain software that says it has scanned your system and have found several viruses.
If you need more help,please ask.
Regards - Anthony

Wiping a Macbook clean like NEW

You need the original Mac OS recovery cds to initialize the hard drive and reinstall the software. Aplle calls formatting the hard drive- Initializing the hard drive. If you don't have the cds, then you need to purchase the Mac OS cds. either Tiger or Panther (again, that is what Apple calls it's software)

If the unit still boots up but is having issues, you can click on the hard drive icon. , click on Applications. Click on Disk Utility.
Click on repair. The OS will repair any errors that it finds. If this works, great. If not you will have to use the Mac OS cds.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hi gembo,

I'm gonna try and help you out with this but first I need to know the actual problem that your
having there. Can you actually hear any sound from your computer when windows loads up?
If what you mean are the mp3 files that you actually have saved on your computer after you wiped
everything out. You can actually retrieved it using 3rd party software but its more like 50/50 situation already.
