Hi guys i am facing problem while trying to install or even boot from CD or USB, my problem it's when i press any key to boot from CD i just get blank screen and i thing the laptop is stuck. Please...


Ok so I'm guessing it's detecting it's a bootable CD since it is prompting you to "press any key to boot from CD" right? If it goes to a blank screen after that and doesn't go any further, I would think it's 1 of 3 things.

1, the CD you are using is bad or damaged. Try a different bootable CD or try to burn a copy of that one and try with the new copy.

2, Could be a memory issue. If you have multiple sticks of RAM in your computer, try removing 1, testing, then the other (while replacing the first one you removed).

3, Your Hard drive could be corrupt or damaged. I would first try wiping it clean with a program like Darik's boot and nuke (http://www.dban.org/). THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA ON THE HARD DRIVE. Then try to re-install again.

Good luck!

Although my computer begins start up it gets stuck in a blank screen - what can I do? My son said he though someone had hackered into his messenger as there were messages not typed by him and so shut down...


You can get a live CD usually referred to as Rescue CD. With that CD you will able to boot from it and then scan the computer using the tools on that CD.

But I recommend you scan while the computer is not connected to any network or internet. If possible unplug the network cable. You can order the live CD from avast.com or you can search on internet for others other than avast.

Monitor goes blank


Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.

How to install win xp in toshiba portage r200 laptop


This is resolved by installing Intel Storage Manager drivers through "F6" option on XP Setup. YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK (A Drive)...as the Portege doesn't come with one...and XP does not support USB or CD ROM for this particular function.
