If you know some one with a xp disk you can use it as a tool to boot up. Once it is booted up it will write a log file and it should work

Just install new hard drive in my laptop....old one frozen. i have an activation key for windows 8.1 pro. how do i install new operating system?

Boot from your installation disc. Insert the installation disc into your optical; drive, and reboot your computer. Normally a computer boots from the hard drive first, so you will need to adjust some settings in your BIOS in order to boot from the disc drive. You can enter the BIOS by hitting the designated Setup key during the boot process. The key will be displayed on the same screen as your manufacturer's logo.
  • Common Setup keys include F2, F10, F12, and Del/Delete.
  • Once you are in the Setup menu, navigate to the Boot section. Set your DVD/CD drive as the first boot device. If you are installing from a USB drive, make sure that the drive is inserted and then select it as the first boot device.
  • Once you've selected the correct drive, save your changes and exit Setup. Your computer will reboot.

I restarted my Toshiba satellite a305 and now it won't boot up or go into safe mode. It comes to the start up screen that says press f2 for setup f12 for boot manager. It will let me go into setup and boot...

If it won't let you go to safe mode,then there's something that the BIOS(setup) or Boot Manager needs before starting the operating system(Windows Vista). You should have a Toshiba Recovery Disk which will fix this . The disk will not touch any of your current files and data,so don't worry about that.

Hai my name is laman my lenovo laptop just haveasmall problem it's displays only press {f2} for set up press f12 for boot device selection & can not execute so any one please solve this problem

Pressing F2 is the shortcut key to enter in cmos setup or bios settings where you can setup interrupt request and the direct memory access and also changing system date and time. While the F12 key is a shortcut key where you can select a boot device which are the hard disk drive if it's loaded with the operating system like windows xp or windows 7 etc., and if you are going to install or reformat your computer select the cd/dvd room drive to be the boot device. Supposedly the computer will load after the F2 or F12 appears on your screen if you have the functional operating system. But if your computer still restarting and always appearing on your screen the said F2 and F12 keys that means it is required to be reformat your computer. But before that you try to tapping F8 key while turning on your computer and select safe mode and press enter, after loading and still restarting that is the time to format your computer but you must back up your data or files that you saved on your computer. Call a computer technician or IT that know how to back up and can format your computer. Have a nice day.

Hello, the problem with my mini toshiba nb200 is that when I on it, it shows the initial screen which says ; TOSHIBA Leading Innovation >>> Press [F2] for ...

If you are getting the Toshiba Select F2 or F12 screen the mother board has finished with POST.

Toshiba laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
Hope this fixes your problem.
