Not Sure of Anything

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.

    it's not a Windows Xp install disc. It's a recovery disc that came with the computer. It doesn't give me the option to install windows xp. I might just have to go buy a window xp disc. Maybe I will upgrade and get Vista

    Try to do one thing.

    insert the windows xp cd (if you have it) then boot in it.

    in the installation wizard, then select repair windows.

    hope this helps.

Hi, i have a big crash with my Toshiba satellite pc, with vista family home edition(32bites) caused by a virus type TROJAN-win32. As I couldn't do the reboot from my computer I found a recovery cd of vista...

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 ( burn that to disc and recover your vista that way

best of luck :)

Pop back into the bios and make sure the boot order is correct (cd first), and make sure that you exit and SAVE.
Look out for the press any key to boot fron cd.
If no luck, can you try the disc in another computer to see if it is bootable

I cant install vista on presario cq61 105sa??

Sometimes getting around these virus problems can be a little tricky. I've found, in my own business that when reinstalling VISTA it will give problems. To eliminate those I use a Linux program called Gpartition. Its free and down loadable. You can use this to completely eliminate anything on that partition (wiped). Then restart VISTA and it should see a blank disk and want to format it. Goodluck

How to re install xp on laptop toshiba satellite 1715-s173

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!

Installed new hard drive into Toshiba M35X-S163 due to old HD completely breaking, installed new 320gb HD, but the recovery disk from Toshiba doesn't want to work, keeps 'cycling' the recovery process,...

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.

Good luck

HP Pavilion dv5215 PC Notebook running very slow, but virus scans are clean as are spyware/adware. backed up 80 gb HD to 500 GB external HD and it took 36 hrs. everything is slow; bootup, going to apps,...

What did you scan the system with?

I would download, install and scan with Malware Bytes just to make sure the system is clean. If there's anything on that machine MB will find it and kill it.

Post back with your results and we'll explore additional possibilities if your PC is indeed totally clean.

Recovery Disc will not work

That's terrible. The right soution should be to try Ashampoo Uninstaller 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

From the above it appears as if you attempted to reinstall the operating system using the recovery discs. Given this you should attemtp this again and make sure that you re-format your harddrive before installing the Operating System again. If you are installing xp again the following link will walk you through the steps.
Basically boot from the cd and re-install windows making sure to delete the existing partition step 5 is critical.
