Hi, Rather than a recovery CD and I would assume that you were able to successfully re-install Windows, all your needed drivers are available at the Toshiba website. Using another PC with Internet connection, download the said drivers/files, burn to a CD or copy to a flashdrive and recopy to a temporary folder in your Toshiba Satellite M55-S3512. In your browser type "http://www.toshiba.com" Click on "Laptop Computers" under US Services & Support/Consumer Services & Support, right side; In the next window, click on Downloads (near top left); next Window, select under Product - Portables under Family - Satellite Under Model - M55-S3512 Click on Go Select your operating System. It might also be a good idea to download/copy WinZip or WinRar. Hope this be of help. Good luck and kind regards.

My com has best defence against online threats, so i can't access internet, i tried basic connection like reset but it didn't work.. I couldn't make Lan network connection eather.. what...


Are you still having this problem? If so, uninstall Norton 360 and restart the system.
After restarting then setup Norton 360 do not add any additional apps into your computer until
it fully is installed and it tells you to restart the system.

If that doesn't solve the problem then get AVG Internet Security 2011 and it will help you to secure your system from hackers and viruses.

Let me know if the problem persists. Then the other thing is total format of the system and all data has to be backed up in Safe Mode. Do not do any thing other then backing up and formatting the system to a fully brand new partition and install Windows back on and do not connect to the internet till you get Norton or AVG installed once there installed then connect to the internet and see if that solved the problem.

After that install on the applications and then restart and login into your system and your all set.

After the attack of windows recovery virus, network adapter is not working. LAN icon in lower rightmost of desktop is not visible


Please reinstall your motherboards drivers from your driver installation disk. During healing or cleaning of the infected files, some of the files that your computer needs to have a lan has been lost or worst destroyed. So then reinstall your motherboard drivers or use system restore and restore your computer to an earlier time when you think it is working properly. Hope this would give you an idea.. Have a nice day friend ! :)

Can't install a Microsoft Wireless Comfort keyboard. I installed the mouse via the USB and IT is working. The keyboard has new batteries. I pushed all 3 buttons...the mouse, the keyboard and the USB thingy...


did the keyboard come with a driver (CD) , if so , reinstall it

if possible, would you be willing to reinstall the recovery Cds to your computer to have a clean set up ?
do you have the recovery Cds -- this means formatting your disk drive --sure, you can back up your important stuff, but i think a reinstall of the recovery Cds is good for the entire computer

what about virus s/w -- what do you use ?

I have lost my Motherboard Drivers CD


Hi,
Simply go to the motherboard manufacturer's web site. They usually will have them for downloading. If your LAN does not work to get you there, ask a friend to download them for you and put them on a CD or USB Flash Drive. Hank

Acer eRecovery for Veriton 7900


Hi,

If you have formatted the hard-Drive you,ve deleted all information from the computer.
your only other option, is to install an operating system ( Windows/Linux ) and check the device manager, to see which drivers need to be downloaded/updated. With Laptops it,s usually VGA ( graphics ) Sound And sometimes LAN/Network drivers.
a recovery cd will have all of this information, and reinstall your original operating system, including authentic product key. so sometimes worth the money.

Stepbystep procedure for formating


Hello jerapur_123 What you'll need:
  • Recovery CD or Restore CD from the MFG
  • WIndows Operating Disk 98 or ME, 2000, XP or Vista.
  • A CD Rom Drive
  • Or a Floppy for low level formatting.
Key Steps to Formatting
Back it Up!
Before the format process, you want to make sure that if your goal is hard drive recovery, you back-up as much personal data and information from your hard drive as you need. In some instances where a virus has caused serious system damage, this may not be possible, but if your format is planned ahead of time you certainly can copy and archive data off your hard drive before you start the format process.

How to Format
If you purchased your computer from systems vendor such as a Dell, HP Compaq or Gateway system, you most likely will have a set-up or a restore-and-recovery CD (also referred to as a master CD) that came with the system. If this is the type of system you use, then a format is an easy process as the master CD by inserting the CD into your CDROM, will format the hard drive, reinstall your Windows operating system, and install any software and programs that came with the system. If you no longer have your master set-up CD, you should contact the manufacturer to get a replacement.


How to Format without a Recovery Disk:

If you aren't using this type of mass-market system, then a hard drive format will consist of you formatting the hard drive manually, installing your Windows OS from CD, then installing your software programs and hardware drivers. Before you begin the formatting process, it is important to make sure you have all your driver CDs located, Windows CD and your software CDs to ensure a smooth set-up.
It's also important to know about your operating system before you format. For example, if you're going to be reinstalling an older version of the operating such as Windows 98 or Windows ME then you should have a Windows 98 or ME start-up disk to complete the procedure. In this instance, you would restart the system with the start-up floppy in the drive. Upon system boot, you will choose to have CD-ROM support. Once the files load you can then choose to run the format command on your main drive (usually C drive). If you are using Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista the Windows installation process offers "format your hard drive" as an option. Here you would ensure your computer is set to boot from CD-ROM (a setting in your system BIOS), insert the Windows CD and restart the computer. From there you will be on your way to reformatting.

As you can see there are many options to formatting a hard drive. Hopefully this gives you a good understanding that most of the operating systems today do the formatting for you, all you need to do is pick that option as you follow the onscreen steps when you install either your Restore, or Operating System.

Good Luck,

Mark

I have lost my recovery disc supplied with my advent 7000 laptop can you help please


advent 7000 recovery system that doesn't require any CDs or DVDs to restore your PC to it's original factory condition.
  • There are two ways to start the recovery -
    • Restart your computer. Then Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
    • In Windows by clicking: Start / All Programs / System Recovery / System Recovery.
  • The recovery will load and display a box with one option:
    • Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.
    To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.
    • System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.
    • System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.

Latitude 820 formatted, drivers lost


Yes it matters! You need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag",(serial number) of the 820 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.
