Question about Toshiba Tecra M1 PC Laptops
I have windows xp on a cd but how do i install it as the laptop does nothing at all when i insert the disc
After searching a lot i got 2 results for you one is :
1:The CD is corrupted? Try getting a replacement CD and see if that works.
2:This issue may occur if your computer contains a hardware component that is either damaged or is incompatible with Windows XP.
Warning Do not complete the following procedure unless you are very familiar with internal computer hardware removal and installation. The hardware components in a computer are very sensitive to static electricity. For information about the correct handling of computer components, contact your computer manufacturer. _____________________________________________________

Does your laptop notice the cd rom as a drive, If it does it should start when you boot system, when the laptop asks you to press enter or spacebar to continue, Frist or all we have to know if your laptop notices the drive, If it don't shut down laptop and then remove drive from bay restart without it, Then shutdown again replace drive and turn laptop back on again try to install windows installation CD again. If the laptop still doesn't reconize the CD. You are going to have to go Into the Bios, To do this You Must Press the Delete Key or the F2 key When You are frist starting the laptop , That Means right after You Press Power on Key and your logo shows up, Press key repeately until You get into system settings, Now I am not sure what your Bios screen Looks like But what you are looking for would be Boot seqence, and then what you want to do is read the page to the right and at the bottom of the screen and find out what keys you have to press to change the boot seqence to boot Off Cd rom as your Frist device for the boot up so the frist thing that the laptop may see is the optical CD rom drive. Ok Once you have done this go ahead and exit your bios Save Your current setting, Now try to reinstall your operating system, It should work Now. You should be on your way in minutes. And I hope That this Helps you out, If not I have a few more tricks up my sleeve for you.
