Tosheiba laptop vista recovery disk won't load. I put image files on c drive try to start try to ruin tosimagex new errors

Hi! Welcome to
What you have to do is to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically. Check your recovery if its running on other pc. If not. call your manufacturer and get a new recovery disc.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

Toshiba Satellite with no OS will not restore to factory with CD

go to bios settings by pressing F2 on start and choose under the boot device to first boot from cd ..this will make it choose the boot from cd first ...and get into recovery mode if this is the kinda disk you are using ..
Another thing is that many laptops came with recovery cd but this will not have a operation system on it this case you have to use a operation system cd first and after that restore drivers and settings with the recovery cd ..Be sure you use the same operation system it came with in this way you can use the drivers from the recovery one...if you change for example from Vista that came with XP the drivers may not be on that disk if it was on vista from the manufacturer...
so ...if you do not have a bootable disk with operation system just go to pirate bay ..and download an image with the operating system you need and burn it using a program like Nero to make it bootable ...after that just run it first (boot from cd also ) and will work

Vista will stop after sign-in at a blue screen. Runs in Safe Mode OK.

First open cpu cabinet refix RAM memory.
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then go to start menu then type in run "chkdsk /r"
then press "y"
then restart then it fiox error on harddisk.
Then if still same issue then you have to need recovery disk.
Boot your computer with recovery disk and then repair your vista.
For booting when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" then ente rin bios .
Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then put recovery disk so it boot with disk.then follow the procedure then repair vista.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.

So to install HDD recovery, please do as follow:
  • Start your notebook after the bios screen press F8 to enter “Advanced boot options” (if you get the timing wrong, just restart and keep pressing F8)
  • Choose the first offered option “Repair my Computer” to enter Vista “System Recovery Options”
  • Choose the last option – Toshiba recovery option
  • Follow the menu on the screen

Please note that whole HDD will be deleted and if you have some important data please back it up

I'm not completely sure on what you are exactly asking here, but I'll do the best I can. If you have the Recovery CD, you need to boot from the CD and run the Recovery. When you go to do the recovery you will have two options, the normal recovery or the destructive recovery. If there is nothing important and everything can be wiped, run a destructive, but if you need everything run the other one. If you do not have a Recovery CD but have a Windows Vista disk that matches the version on your computer (IE: Windows Vista Home 32 bit is on your computer and you have a Windows Vista Home 32 bit disk) and you DO NOT need anything saved, just reinstall Windows. There is a product key for Vista on the sticker attached to your case. If you have neither, then you can probably get a new recovery disk by contacting HP (since they bought out Compaq). If you can not get a new Recovery CD, you will need to go out and buy a new copy of Windows Vista.
