    ok try this Restore procedure without disk

    Toshiba: BEFORE TURNING ON THE LAPTOP, press and hold the 0 (zero) button on the keyboard, then turn on the computer while holding the 0 (zero) button down. When the Toshiba logo screen appears, you can release the 0 key.

How to format my compaq pressario cq40 604tx laptop with xp


hi

Boot from your XP install CD and select the option to format the C:
drive. If you don't have an install CD, use the "System Restore" CD or
DVD that came with your system. These restore your system to factory
settings. There're still other ways to format your C: drive, but
without either an install CD or restore one, you'll end up with an
unusable system after formatting the C: drive.
If you use the XP install CD, you'll need to be SURE you have all the
drivers for things like your DVD/CD drive, NIC, video, audio, modem, etc.

I lost my restore and internet


Microsoft issued Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 for XP to patch (and "improve") the OS. The list of patches and downloads for XP are here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/resultsForProduct.aspx?displaylang=en&ProductID=4c937a02-bae0-4317-a1a9-0c56cd979d05

You needed to install the service packs to continue accessing Microsoft's updates for your computer. Microsoft assumes you don't want to lose this data. You could get rid of the problem by reinstalling the entire OS from your current disc (if you have a full version, if you have an update version of XP you'll need the OS disc for Win95, Win98, WinMe or Win2K). Start with formatting the hard disc. However, you will lose the ability to contact MS for updates with Windows Update until you manually download and install the Service Packs (including SP3).

Alternatively you can build a new recovery disc for your current XP version, if you take the IT versions of the service packs. This takes several steps - first you need to copy all the files from the CD to a hard disc. Then you need to slipstream in the service packs. Then get the boot image files from the CD and create a new .iso with all of the files. For SP2, http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp has more information on the details.

If you want to add the SP3, you need to add the following set of steps:

I hope you can get your machine to function.

Some service process not kill in Windows XP


Well you have to get in and use system restore to that point when you had'nt installed the freeware tool and on the prompt that a restart is required for the changes to take effect, chose next time windows is shutdown, which means you dont have to reboot the client machine, but it will be executed the next that machine is switched off by the user.......sodeep

When did it first start happening?
Do you have restore points activated? Try restoring your machine to an earlier date to see if it fixes the problem.

it is saying you need service pack 2 for windows xp, i would think,....it is a number of updates to winxp opereting system for it to perform better .
(he says smiling), if you have the original windows xp disc with service pack two on it ,put it in the cd/dvd drive and press enter when it asks for it.

good luck
