I have an older Toshiba NB 205-N210 with a flashing cursor on a black screen. No recovery discs - No function keys allow me to do anything on startup. What do I need to place on a thumb-drive to recover...

I need more info to be able to help you.What operating system are you using?
XP? VISTA? Windows 7?Do you see the windows startup screen?
if not... I suggest you go to the CMOS setting, it seems that you lost your hard drive configuration, if you do not know how to do that, just go to the save menu and load the "Setup Default" or it maybe called just "Defaults, or CMOS Defaults, after that your computer should boot up. Make sure that the primary boot drive is your hard drive and not anything else.Tony

My computer starts to go through the boot process but then it stops all I get is a blinking cursor. In addition if try to hit f8 to restore theast known setting it still ends up on the blinking cursor

The blinking sensor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that it can't locate the Windows boot files - either the disk is defective or Windows is totally corrupted.
Reinstall and if the problem returns very quickly you will have to replace the hard disk.

Upon start-up, I keep getting an error message 0xc00000e9 "An unexpected I/O error has occurred". I do not have a drive and cannot seem to get to system restore. Help!

try booting to safe mode.
go to Start, my computer, and right click, select properties and then under tools, check disk for errors. Select automatically fix errors and it ask you if you want to schedule a scan when the computer restarts, say yes.

Reboot and let it fix it for you.

How to reinstall Xp-home on NB205? Currently running trial vers. of Window 7

Have you found Win 7 to be as unstable as vista? I thought so. The trial of win 7 probably deleted XP, so you will either need a factory reset disc or an XP install disc. Insert either into the CD drive and boot from it. Follow the on screen instructions.

How do i turn on the system restore point since the box where it says " Turn off System Restore ( disabled by Group Policy) was checked and there's no way to uncheck it?

Right click on "My Computer" (XP) and scroll down to "Properties". System Restore should be right over the General tab and just un-check "Turn Off" and click Apply. Click here for a tutorial for Win 7 and Vista

Tosheiba Netbook NB205-N210 2 GIG, upgrade to Windows 7

I personally have not but if you are concerned how it will run, you should be fine, windows 7 is very efficent on resources.
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    These are system specs so if you exceed these then your laptop will run great.

    Hope this helps
