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.

Toshiba tecra m1 pc.. boot cycle keeps recycling... the windows logo appears then it auto restarts... will not finish loading windows xp same thing happens when i try to boot in safe mode.. any of the...


If it's rebooting when trying to boot into safe mode as well, have you tried "Last Known Good Configuration"? Press F8 like you do to go into Safe Mode, and choose this instead.
If this doesn't work, on the F8 menu, you can disable automatic restart. This will cause Windows to hang instead of automatically rebooting when it encounters an error. With any luck, it will display a STOP error for you. If you get this, comment with the error and I'll be happy to look that up for you.
If this helps, please give a positive rating.

How can I boot my Toshiba tecra M1? when i am going to formate my laptop with using windows xp the booting doesnt work and the lap turn off when it start to boot. plz help me.


When booting up look for the message that says Enter Setup press (key number like F1 etc), then cet the boot order to have the CD rom first and not the HD (hard drive. Hit escape and then select save settings.This will then allow booting from the WinXP disk.

Answer to your question


You will need to get into the bios, and set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive. Since your in this uncompromising loop, remove the hard drive, then start the machine. It should go to the initial Toshiba screen and you will see the prompt on what to press to get to the bios, or utility set up. Once your in the bios, find the boot order and set the CD drive over the hdd. Then put the hdd back in, the recovery or operating system disc in the CD drive, and start the machine. It should now boot from the disc. At this point you will want to do a system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hdd, and install a new operating system. If the hdd will not format or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hdd has failed and will need replaced. If you need any futher aststance, just ask.

Tecra m1 password


You can try this solution from the toshiba forums 
" try using recovery disc,
 
turn on computer> keep tapping f12> boot menu> choose cd /dvd> will load disc> choose system recovery option> next> system restore
 
wait for menu and hit next and choose date your son able to use or logon using original password."

or you can call toshiba to have them walk you through how to reset this.  (United states toll free number to Toshiba Customer support)
Computers: (800) 457-7777
I am not sure about the details.  I know you were referring to an earlier post, but I do not know what you have tried so far.
