You need to change the boot order in the bios / cmos settings. When you start the computer pay close attention to the display. Usually you'll see something along the lines of Press F2 or F10 to enter setup. The "setup" page is what you're after.

Once there you'll need to change the device boot order. Just move through the various menus and you will for sure find what I'm talking about. Just make sure the first boot device is set to "cd / dvd / optical" Different cmos menus call it different names, but you'll figure it out don't worry ;)

Once it's set correctly it's just a matter of booting to the cd and following the prompts.

Hope this info helps!

I want to connect a wireless Cannon printer to a Toshiba laptop, do I need a certain type of router? I have WiFi and WWAN internet connection, do I still need a router?


The printer needs to be connected to a router.
The router has to be wireless.
The laptop should then be connected to the router in order to install.

The printer shoul have an option to search and connect to a wireless router. After searching an connecting, you have to connect the laptop to the router and install the printer as an network printer.

Hi

The ISO files need to be burned into a cd with a special program. Please use this software. http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm

Next, the reason why you are getting the error message is because the computer is not starting from the cd, or the cd was burned incorrectly.

The computer is most likely starting from the hard drive instead and since it's formatted you get the error message.

To get the computer to start from the cd instead and to install the system again, you need to adjust the boot order.

The laptop might have a Boot menu feature (look at the screen right when you power it on and see if it says anywhere press xx key to enter Boot menu) If you don't have the boot menu option then you need to enter setup or bios, same thing different name.

The computer will say at some part of the screen to press xx button to enter setup or bios / cmos.

In Bios you must adjust the boot order so that the Cd / dvd drive is before the hard drive in the order. this way the computer will start from the cd instead of trying the hard drive.

Here are a few good tutorial videos on the subject of changing the boot order.

Thank you,

I am selling my HP Pavilion dv4000 series laptop, and I want to reboot the software to make it like it was when I first purchased the computer. I have all of the backup disks. Just don't know how to get...


When you bootup the laptop, press F8 and you should see a boot from what screen, not the Safe Mode options boot screen. In this list of what or where to boot from there may be a "boot from recovery partition'. This option would reinstall the setup you had wehn you purchased the laptop.

If you don't see that then yes you need to use the backup discs to reset your machine. You start with the laptop off and put disc 1 in the cdrom and start up the laptop. This is dependent on your boot up order, found in system setup screens F10 when booting, having the cdrom ahead of your hard drive in the bootup order.

I have acer aspire laptop computer model 3692WLM1 windows media center edition I wish to purchase a HP DESKJET D4200 series printer will this be compatable for my laptop


Hey doodee,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this model HP printer requires Windows 2000, Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional in order to function. Apart from the obvious cosmetic changes and some extra added functionality, Windows XP Media Center Edition may be treated as basic Windows XP in many instances. As such, this printer should be compatible with your computer. Please keep in mind however, that you may need to perform driver and software updates in order to guarantee functionality.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Help needed to get power connected.


There are a few possibilities.

If it's been plugged in continuously, the adapter may have simply overheated. Allowing it a few minutes to cool down without being plugged in could possibly fix it. Try unplugging the power cable from both the wall and the laptop for 30 minutes and give it another shot. This might work.

The other, less happy, possibility is that your adapter overheated to a critical point or was struck by an electrical surge and is damaged beyond repair. You can order a new one from a site like eBay or directly from Toshiba. Looks like you could get one from eBay for around 25$US incl. shipping but be careful and make sure you order the right thing.
