Toshiba P25-S507 crashed WindowsXP because of Digital Mode button

Hi FixYa Expert,

My Toshiba P25-S507 crashed Windows XP Home edition because of Digital Mode button.
With this computer, you can use the CD player with the PC being off and to do so you press a button called "mode" in front of the unit and the CD player works independently from the PC that stays off; the problem is that if you press it twice it selects "digital mode"; I pressed it twice by mistake and this "digital mode" button launched Windows XP which started booting then got stuck. Ever since, i can't launch Windows properly whatever the mode "Safe mode, last know config..."; it always ends up stuck nowhere... or in DOS.
Anyway I can fix this without re-installing the machine completely (with the recovery disk)?
Thank you!

Fred

If you can boot to a windows CD, you can try a "repair installation" of Windows, this will let you reinstall windows on top of itself, without harming your data:

you can't use a restore disk made for a specific hard drive with a much larger hard drive. This information is checked by the restore cd. You would need to contact toshiba and get a regular windows install cd.

I can't read my screen because it it too llght


You should have a Fn button on your laptop, and pressing that, combined with the button that has a sun on it should raise your screen brightness, if your screen only has one brightness setting, and it got much darker all of a sudden, your LCD lamp probably went out, in which case it is probably better to buy a new laptop, because those are expensive to replace.

My Toshiba Satellite P25 will no longer boot up but keeps running the following text. RTL8139(x)/8130/810X PCI ethernet controller v2.13 (020326) PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable PXE M0F: exiting...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I am tempted to think that the CMOS/BIOS could not detect the internal hard disk and therefore is booting from the LAN. Pls reboot and enter CMOS/BIOS setup. Thereafter determine if the computer could detect the hard disk either auto or manually.

If the above solution has merit, pls click on my "Ask Me" to explore additional options, postback how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
