Hi, you need to switch on the laptop and press DEL or F2 to enter the bios, once in the bios you need to change the boot device to cdrom first, usually in the advanced option, save it, make sure the Xp cd is in the drive and it will boot from the cd.

Have a nice christmas

Cd rom will not read. have just put windows 98 on instead of xp, hard disc was formated, have win 98 now, but cd wont work or if i plug in usb memory stick

With Windows 98 you MUST install a suitable driver in addition to Windows 98 to talk to CD Roms. I believe there is also a general service routine that must be loaded.

XP has all this functionality built in.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

you have to use a standard windows start up disk with cd rom support like win 98 works well so the computer will recognize a older version then insert it and boot the computer with the operating system that u want to install but be advised if you have a warranty on the machine you will void the waranty i found out the hard way i had xp on my toshiba laptop and i put windows me on it couple of months later i had a cd rom issue and sent it to the manufacture and found out that the waranty was voided because i put a different operating system on the machine

Cannot format hard drive

It is possible that the memory itself is bad. Did you purchase it from a store or individual?

TMOUSE (01) error - Win 98 bootup

Try booting using the step-by-step confirmation instead of safe mode. Skip loading the mouse driver that is causing the error. You won't have a mouse when you get booted up but you can use keyboard commands to navigate everything while you try to reload drivers.

Reload xp on laptop

And, a good evening to you!
First thing to do is to go into safe start up and make sure that you change drive priorities to show the cd ROM is assigned the first device to read from. All should be well, from that point on.
