Some laptops allow to select an alternate boot device by pressing a Function key such as F12, F10 etc.
If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order and make the CD the first boot device.

    You can then use the Windows installation CD to wipe your hard disk and format and install Windows.

    do you know how to get into the bios for a toshiba m200 portege? its hard to find out how and I forgot. thanks.

    try hitting f1, you may have to already have hit f2 or f12 to bring up the boot options (this screen is the splash screen yellow bar that you move around with the arrow keys to select an icon of the desired boot device).
    this should be the solution, however Toshiba didn't make it easy for us, as the system cannot be booted using a usb drive. The options then become booting via a networked pxe boot server or trying to create a bootable sd card. (i have had no success with either of these myself, but perhaps your kung fu is better)

I want to know how to reinstall toshiba portege m200


This is in case you cannot boot into windows but you can get into bios:
Open your disk drive. Insert windows operating system disk into your disk drive. Restart your computer.
If you can get to the stage where you can see see bios entry key then keep pressing whatever key it is that you press to get into bios at start up.
Select the option that let's you choose the drive to boot from, mine is in advanced bios options. then go to either something like bios features or change boot drive.select whatever drive represents your CD-ROM drive and select it to be the first boot drive.
then save exit bios, I do this by pressing escape then Y to save and boot from the rom drive.
This will let you restart your installation of windows and
re-format the drive...
If you can boot into windows:
Then either re-format the drive and delete the partition when you do or...
Run a recovery of the system by installing your disk and letting it get to the stage wher it asks what action/task you want to perform and press r when prompted then follow the prompts to repair the files. This might not work though,
you could even try running a disk check as maybe a lucky chance of repair if you can get into windows.
If your PC keeps trying to boot from the CD drive after repair then re-enter bios at start up and change your hard drive back to first boot device to boot into windows.

It's better if you re-format though as repairing windows can be a little tricky.

I have a toshiba portege m200 with windows xp pro service pak 3 . I have encountered the hang at driver agp 440 sys and cannot boot even in safe mode. I have outlook 2003 with data I don't want to loose. ...


Remove Hard Drive, connect it to a USB to Hard Drive "Dongle" & recover your files that way. When you connect your drive & dongle it will "Show Up" in My Computer as a "Drive" as such you can Copy, Cut & Paste between windows..Of course you would have to use a friends PC to do it as yours now is inoperative. When you have all what you want. Reformat the drive and put it back into your laptop and reinstall windows and apps.
