I was gifted this laptop and it had a lot of rubbish on the C drive so decided it would be best to clean it and start again. In doing so I seem to have reformatted the C drive and lost all the drivers. I have a disc for Windows 98 which is what I want it to run but I believe I need Toshiba drivers first. These I do not have. It is an old machine and I only want it as a hobby/ exercise. I have not done much with basic since i did a course at the local polytech 20 years ago. but do understand some of the priciples. At present when I start up I get the message:-
Invalid system disk.
Replace the disk, and then press any key
then of course when I press a key it repeats the message. How do I break this loop?

When dealing with this error (10-FC06-000D) message in Toshiba
unit is very comment in the L300 series, I don't know if Toshiba is
using cheaper hard drives or what but I see a lot of them with the same
problem. If you have a Toshiba unit got to their website to check if
your unit is still under manufacture warranty if it is you have some
options send it to Toshiba direct they should cover the shipping but I'm
not to sure, or take it in to any Best Buy or Future shop stores with
your proof of purchase and they will send it out for you. This is a
hardware problem that is related to the hard drive, I wiped the hard
drive and all it's boot records still unable to reinstall the OS OK, I
finally decided to use a test hard drive to reinstall the OS worked fine
so there is something wrong with the hard drive that most likely would
need to be replaced
The best way is to use compressed air to blow the stuff from between the keys then use a paper towel or lint free cloth and spray a little Windex on it and wipe the keys down while to computer is turned off. If you have spilled liquid in the keyboard there is no easy way to clean that up.
Best place to get drivers for wireless internet for toshiba laptops is the toshiba support website. Visit the toshiba support website and type in your model for drivers and the list of all drives available for your unit will be displayed. You can simply get the driver for your wireless from there. Hope this solution has been helpful?
I would leave it in the airing cupboard or somewhere warm to dry off completely first and try it again later. Also whilst it is doing that if its under warranty or a newish laptop then see if you can get Toshiba to repair it for you.
Not much else anyone can advise as obviously you have already turned it on after cleaning it up which it may of still been wet inside so not a great idea to turn it on as the liquid could of possibly of gone inside and as a lot of people know water / liquids and electricity is a big no no.
