    Why would you want to reinstall the OS when you can uninstall SP3 from add remove programs?
    If you really want to reinstall have you got the recovery disk?

You have to enter bios when computer boots. Not sure on Toshiba it might be F10 or delete or F1 or f12. If all else fails try them all till you get into the bios. Go to advance and go to boot options. You have to set CD rom as first boot option and hard drive 0 as second boot option. That should let you boot from a CD.

Toshiba Tecra M1 what are hdd format procedure?


Formatting a laptop is the same as doing it on a desktop computer.
If you are using the Windows installation CD then to get the laptop to boot up with the Windows CD you can change the BIOS boot startup device and make the CD the first boot device.

I would lick ti instal xp on my set toshiba tecra a2-s316 but i dont know how to boot my system by bootable cd


When booting you laptop notice the Toshiba scree. As that screen displays with the option F2 or F10. With your XP cd in the DVD/CD drive choose F10 and set your boot device to DVD/CD.
And follow the onscreen prompts.
Hope that helps.

Toshiba tecra M3 wont start. Upon startup it shows a black screen and says problem loading operating system


download form bootdisk.com "XP Boot" and burn to cd in an .iso (bootable) format.

boot from the cdrom (you may have to go into BIOS and look for a "boot priority" option to allow you to boot from cd, to acess BIOS, hit "escape" and then either "F1" or "F2" as soon as you turn it on). run fdisk /mbr from the XP Boot cd. with this tool, try to repair the mbr. if that does not work, you need to use this tool to erase the mbr and reinstall windows.

Audio driver link needed


Hello rye2222, If your Toshiba has the Sigmatel Stac 9750TG audio chipset and Intel 855GM mainboard chipset, then try the link below to download the audio driver. Toshiba has no drivers on it's site for your notebook, but this is for another notebook that has the same chipsets. Hope it helps! Hal
