Re: need help for Toshiba Satellite A60

You have to order replacement disks from Toshiba - probably about $30 for a set.

If you are getting errors with installing just plain XP, you probably have a hardware problem - Probably a bad hard drive or stick or RAM. Try pulling one stick out (if you have 2) and reinstalling XP.

You can get hard drive testing software here:

Get the ISO download on that page. If you need to know how to burn the ISO to CD properly look here:
