Bpaul76,
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.

I have a Toshiba A45-S121 laptop. I upgraded my hard drive from a 40GB hard drive to a 320GB Western Digital. Loaded Windows XP and formated drive in FPTS format. The computer rebooted to the hard drive...


Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.

Won't boot up..hangs after accessing cd drive


You can download Hiren's Boot CD utility and burn that to a cd. Reboot your computer with the cd in. Select to start from cd. Now you will see several options that you can work with. What you want to do is go into Partition Tools or Harddisc Tools and partition and format your harddrive. MAKE SURE you have a copy of Windows XP or your restore discs BEFORE you do this as you will not have anything left after this is done. Once you have formatted the harddrive, you can reinstall windows xp.

Toshiba problem


On boot go into your BIOS and set your CD/DVD ROM drive to first in the boot order options, then with the CD/DVD in the drive reboot your computer and wait for a prompt to "Press any key to boot to this CD" and do so (you'll only have a couple of seconds so be ready or reboot again) and you then will be taken through the loading of files until you get to your partition/install screen options, where you'll delete the partition that your OS is on, then create a new one and then format that partition and install XP on it.

Op. sys reload


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
