First try boot options.

On start up press F8, you get different boot options listed.

Select "last known good configuration"
If this doesn't work, try "boot into Safe Mode". Then restart once safe mode loads.

If neither of these work, you may have to attempt a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows Vista Operating system disk (same version of Vista, Home or Premium).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The Windows Setup CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

New laptop C650, how to install OS ?


If you are installing Windows, you need the Windows installation CD and the product installation code.
Boot up the Toshiba with this installation CD in the DVD/CD drive and follow the on screen instructions.
After Windows is installed you need to install the Toshiba's devices.
You may need to download these Toshiba drivers using another computer.
These instructions are just the basic details.
If you need further instructions, please get back to me and tell me at what stage you are having troubles.

Recovery console key convination for a laptop?


Hi there.
Restart the PC and hit F2 while it boots up, this will take you into the bios, look for boot devices and set the CD to the first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios. The compuer will restart and boot from the CD drive.
Once the OS has installed go back into the bios and set the HDD (hard drive) to first boot device.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
