Turn the laptop on and immediately start pressing the "0" (zero) key. If this does not get you into recovery mode then you will have to purchase some recovery disks for your laptop. Toshiba charges about 30.00 for most recovery disks. Also, this problem could have occured because you could have a bad hard drive. if this is the case I would order a replacement hard drive from Toshiba instead of the recovery disk. If there is sound that comes from your laptop that sounds like something is spinning and rubbing or spinning and ticking like somthing is loose then you may have a bad hard drive. Hope this helps.

Is OS is lost and no back up or disc installer OS I think you need to buy a new one or request from your computer manufacturer.

Dont worry if you are missing help files...........just follow these steps...:-
1) get to someother computer which have windows vista premium running. try to find help files in c:/windows directory.
2) Once found copy it into usb and copy those files in your system at the same location from where you have copied them in other computer.
3) Restart system and its done.

Other way is to use vista recovery disk to copy system files ...

I need to get back in my OEM vista home premium


If you contact Toshiba, they can send you the original restore disks. If you are really nice to them, they might send them out for free.. I believe normally they do charge but they sent them to me for free a couple of years ago with my Toshiba laptop :)

Deleting emails, documents and receiving error messages


I have a suggestion.
backup the data, formate the disk.
load linux( PCLinuxos or Ubuntu) and make it dual boot, after that install windows XP, might your friend have some CD of that(I have done the same).
XP is good operating system and very simple to use. Also you can always have backup disk of your old vista.
Say bye bye to Dell.

Can't run Backup discs. Using Home Premium software and Vista


Questions that I have to ask.
Did you make restore disks when you first bought the Machine or software?
Did you make your backups on the machine you are using?

I normally have to go to a factory reset, and reload programs and saved files. I have had this machine 5 months, I gripe like hell when my old software does not run, after it has updated. Factory settings allow me to run old software.

I am using Windows Vistra Home Predium with Service Pak 1 and Service Pak 2.
