I didn't know windows 7 had a CD to reinstall the operating system.
From what I know, the hard drive on your laptop should have two partitions, one of which is the operating system for windows 7 and the other partition is for your data.
From what I can remember, once you switch on your laptop, press either F12 or F2 or Esc to go to system sittings, I think that's where you wanna be.

SOURCE: Cannot open my computer, laptop model PCGK45.

hi check out this solution and let me know

To resolve this issue, start the computer from the Windows XP CD, start the Recovery Console, and then use the Bootcfg.exe tool to rebuild the Boot.ini file. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
  2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
  3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
  4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
  6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
  8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:
    1. When you receive a message that is similar to the following message, press Y: Total Identified Windows Installs: 1

      [1] C:\Windows
      Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
    2. You receive a message that is similar to the following message: Enter Load Identifier This is the name of the operating system. When you receive this message, type the name of your operating system, and then press ENTER. This is either Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
    3. You receive a message that is similar to the following: Enter OS Load options When you receive this message, type /fastdetect, and then press ENTER.

      Note The instructions that appear on your screen may be different, depending on the configuration of your computer.
  9. Type exit, and then press ENTER to quit Recovery Console. Your computer restarts, and the updated boot list appears when you receive the "Please select the operating system to start" message.
Thanks

SOURCE: ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.

You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

SOURCE: i my laptop cant boot windows 7 and xp together !

Hi,
Since you have installed XP after installing windows 7 & vista, you have erased the boot manager of vista. To get it back, just download & install Vista Boot Pro from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/VistaBootPRO.shtml

SOURCE: my laptop won't boot from cd

if u can boot from CD rom without ur HD then ur booting is OK. BIOS has nothing to do with ur HD booting.....it's just that the machine starts from BIOS 1st...then looks for the HDD to load the Win boot files..else it goes to CD rom for the boot files...and so on...
check that the boot from HDD sequence is not disabled in BIOS.
keep this boot seq
1 CD ROM
2 Floppy
3 HDD
4 USB HD
try this...1st
disable all 1 to 3 in above seq
connect a USB cd rom drive or a USB pen drive
ensure that ur Win disk is either in the USB CD rom drive or Win install files(copy of Win CD) are in a USB pen drive check if it boots from the pen drive....
after you boot....
connect your HDD now check if it can recognise the HD....else we can work on plan B

SOURCE: installing window 7 but cd

You can make the CD as the first boot device by going into the BIOS configuration and changing the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second boot device.
After installing Windows, you can change the device boot up back to the hard disk but it is not necessary.

How to install windows 7 on toshiba satellite c50-a634


On the first screen you see on start up should ask "To enter setup press (ESC or DEL or F1). You need to know which key to depress to enter BIOS setup. Once you enter BIOS (Basic Input Output System you would need to setup your boot priority to your CD or DVD drive. Once you do that you will need to save your configuration and with your operating system disk in the disk drive restart your computer and then you will need to select Boot from CD or DVD, which ever type drive you have and your operating system setup should start.

GOOD LUCK!

My laptop getting slow and slow.. how do i reformat my computer??


Just get an Operating System CD/DVD, you want to format with, place it in your CD/DVD drive and make a computer reboot. When the computer will restart, during the pre-booting process, it will show "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD". Now press any key to start the formatting process (But before that, be sure, you have CD/DVD boot option ON in the BIOS settings).
Now follow the on-screen instructions. That's all.



For more details how to format Windows 7 from CD/DVD, read this section: http://howtoformatacomputer.com/format-windows-7

If you are willing to format Windows 7 from USB Drives, you may want to read this section: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/

NOTE: If booting from CD/DVD is disabled in your BIOS and you don't know how to enable it, please let us know by commenting over this reply.


Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

I have a Toshiba laptop with a Windows 7 operating system AND A BLACK SCREEN WITH AN ARROW(curser) ON IT


Try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

How can I unlock my toshiba laptop


At some point, you'll encounter a password issue on your Toshiba laptop computer for several possible reasons. For instance, you may have decided to go back to the old laptop, and it's been a while since you last logged into it. Forgetting a password is also common if you tend to create different codes for various uses: email, network administrator user information and bank account details, for instance. Should you need to unlock a Toshiba laptop computer that runs on Windows XP, here is what you can do.

1.Use a Windows installation CD to reset your password for your Toshiba laptop computer. This is the same one that you got when you purchased the computer. Boot the laptop using the CD in the same way that you would go through a re-installation for your operating system. Simply insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive and wait for the computer to read it. From there, you will get a prompt that says "press any key to boot from CD," so you just need to follow as instructed.

2.Repair Windows. Once the CD starts up, you will get to a screen that will ask you whether you want to "Install Windows" or "Repair Windows." Press "R" to repair. The computer will then reboot itself after copying files from the CD into the Toshiba laptop's hard drive.

3.Get into the control panel. After the computer boots up, you will encounter a screen that will say "Installing devices." To open the command prompt, press the keys "Shift + F10." On the command prompt, type in "nusrmgr.cpl."

4.Change your password. Getting into the control panel will allow you to change your password using the administrator's control panel utilities. Just go through the process of designating a new password to unlock your Toshiba laptop and then exit the command prompt.

5.Restart the laptop and try logging back in using the new password.

6.Log on without the Windows XP installer. If you don't have a Windows bootable CD, use another computer with internet access so you can create an emergency recovery disk (ERD) that will allow you to unlock a Toshiba laptop. Browse through the internet and search for ERD software.

7.Burn the ERD program into the blank CD and use it to reboot the Toshiba laptop that you want to unlock. The computer will automatically detect the program, so it will take you to a series of prompts where you can change your password.

What if my toshiba requires a password?


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
If you have an operating system like XP, Vista or window 7. we can reinstall OS of the laptop. If you dont have one you can call your manufacturer to get or purchase one. Here is an instruction on how to install window 7
Insert the recovery disk into the CD/DVD drive.
2 Click "Start" and then click the arrow pointing to the right. Click "Restart" from the fly-out menu to reboot the computer.
3 Press any key, when prompted, to boot from CD during the Windows 7 start-up process.
4 If no prompt appears, press the "F8" key to force the computer to boot from the CD.
5 Make a selection from the "Language" preference list and click "Next" at the bottom right of the screen.
6 Click the "Install Now" option to start the installation.
7 Select the "Custom" installation option.
8 Delete any partitions on the hard drive. Toshiba laptops are shipped with only one partition, the C: drive. To delete a partition, select the partition and then click the "Delete" option.
9 Select the C: drive and click "Next". The Windows 7 operating system will begin the installation process by first formatting the drive, and then copying files to the drive.
10 Select the "Time Zone" preferences, and complete the remaining preference forms. Click "Next." The installation may take a while. Allow the installation to complete. The computer will boot up into Windows once the machine has been fully restored to factory settings.

I got IBM think pad T49 but it is very slow now. Experts said that i need to reboot this computer to get back normal speed but i lost my reboot CD. could u help me to reboot my thinkpad please


Your only option if you don't have the reboot cd's would be to find a windows xp, vista or windows 7 cd. Install windows and then go to this page to download and install the hardware drivers for your laptop. They have drivers for all the operating systems.
At this point install any software you want to use on your laptop. Be sure to go into your BIOS and set the 1st boot device to the cd drive so that way it boots up automatically from the windows cd.

Toshiba Tecra Notebook


INstall the hard drive, if the hard drive came with a cd, put the cd in the drive and boot the laptop. When you see it say "boot from cd hit any key" do so and follow the prompts. This software will "initialize" the disc and install for the first time. Once the disc is "officially" installed take the hard drive disc out of the drive and replace it with Operating Disc. Reboot the machine and again look for the "Boot from CD Hit any Key" hit any key and let the system load windows. You only have to hit the key one time when it says "hit any key" even if during the windows install, the system may reboot but it still may need the disc in the drive, if you see the heading "boot from cd hit any key" dont hit any key any more....just let windows finish loading. When windows finally reboots, sometimes up to three times, then you can take the disc out of the drive or take it out if the operating system instructs you to. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
