Ya see, I'm not sure if the virus is stoping my recovery disc from working or my HD has crashed. When I load the recovery disc all it will let me do it either wipe the HD or Out of Box State. It won't let me do the Out of Box State. After a few minutes runing it will give me the Error (ERROR: 10E7160017). Is there anywhere I can look at disc from DOS? Maybe I can get it to install windows xp back on my HD without doing the recovery thing.

hi firstly you will need to press ctrl then press f10 as computer is powered on before windows loads up you will be given options as to a recovery this will wipe your computer completely of virusus and leave it like new make sure to follow all the instructions goodluck
boot into safe mode with networking ,run malwarebytes and get that to remove the virus. if your disc isn't compatible you can try using neo-smart's recovery discs (http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/)and burn that to disc and recover your vista that way
Why dont ya boot from your windows CD/DVD and do a repair install not repair from recovery console if ya on XP that way you wont lose anything and all your windows files get replaced then do all your updates again, at least that eliminates any problems with windows files. Cheers from Scott let me know how you go
Either get a fresh copy of XP with sp3 on it (microsoft doesnt't support anything before that now) and boot off cd and follow the instructions till done. Or use the recovery/operating system disc your laptop came with if you have it and reload your computer. You'll probably have another disc with the drivers for your hardware (network adaptors, etc.) in the computer. Make sure you reload drivers for anything you added and make sure you have installation discs for any programs you added and want to keep. When using the manufacturer's disc your computer will be just like it was fresh outta the store. Including the junkware that was on it (offers, AOL, trial anti-virus, etc.). If you can find a legitimate copy of XP SP3 (I bought one and kept it for later) you can load xp only onto your computer (junkware free) and start totally fresh for real. Install your software and away you go! Be sure to put firewall on before going on internet!
You will need to talk to whoever you got the HD from. It should have come with a format disk since HD have barely changed over the last ten years they can still be setup for just about anything form FAT16 to the latest Mac use. The reason you are having troubles is that the HD doesn't know what format you are giving it. Whenever i have bought a new HD it comes with a disc to format then you are good to use the OS disc to load up it is possible that the recovery disc is setup only for a Toshiba setup HD and not another generic format. you might what to call the toshiba help line (800) 457-7777 that is straight from their website. Best of luck my friend
) Typically you can start your computer in safe mode by depressing the f8 key at the same time you boot. That will tell your computer to load only the essential drivers and OS components to boot the window screen. From safe mode, you can delete, clean up temp files, or roll back to a new setpoint date when your computer was working. You can try this and clean your system of any p&rn flicks and viruses that may have invaided your system!
2) It is rarely a motherboard failure unless you did some major drop-testing of your laptop computer. Even then the hard drive or memory getting dislodged would be more normal course of action. The manual is very clear on how to open your laptop, check and see if the memory got shocked out of the shocket and check the HD for the same issue. Try removing and reinserting the HD and Memory sticks back into their shockets; then try booting.
3) Msy be your battery might dead. In some systems if the batter is dead it will not take any more charges and will not let you boot. Buy a new battery and replace it.
4) Any drop-testing conducted on your lap-top when it is on would cause major damage to the HD spinning disc to crash into the pickup head. This is called a HD crash and damage the information on the disc. Replacing the disc with even an empty disc at $50 which prop you to load an OS means the HD is trashed. Re-install the HP backup OS and any other software onto the new HD and go on with your life.
If you use the recovery disc provided by the manufacturer, it will re-install OS, drivers also the pre-installed softwares which comes along when youget a new computer. make sure u backup the data first.
The recover disc is like a ghost or image copy.
This should work. Everything would be loaded in the recovery disc.
That's terrible. The right soution should be to try AshampooUninstaller or similar software that gets off EVERY BIT of unwanted software. Use function "Install new applications". It asks for setup.exe, install.exe or similar executable file, that runs Antivirus 360 installer. Point to it. After all the installations completes, "Ashampoo Uninstaller" logs the installation. Now uninstall the unwanted program using "Uninstall logged programs". That's it!
If you really damaged your operating system, do buckup of your important data and reinstall OS
Nothing that says Operating System or recovery that's not good. Go ahead and load all three of the disc. You may get lucky. The drivers and utilities normally as all of the drivers but its hard to tell without being there...You will not hurt anything by loading all three. Then I will walk you thru making a backup disc, because as of right now if your if your system crashed you have nothing to reload
it with..I'll stay with you until we got it right..
