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.

Restore win 7 from system image on toshiba portage m200


This should apply to other brands and models...
the original problem: bad hard disk, need to restore from win 7 image disks however The portage m200 lacks an optical drive and cannot be booted from usb (only options are to boot from LAN or from a specially created SD card).

Solution:
you will need a second pc that can boot from an on board or peripheral optical drive. Swap the second pc's hard drive for the one that you are restoring. Now boot the second pc from the restore disk and follow the onscreen instructions. Once completed the pc will try to reboot and you will get an error about how windows couldn't repair start-up. Now power down and swap the hard drive back to the portage. You should now be up and running, much easier than trying to create a boot-able sd image or boot from a PXE server.

When i start the pc i get bios block3 damaged


The issue indiates that the Hard Drive sector or Operating System file block is corrupted. Try to boot the Computer in Safe Mode and check if the same issue persists. You will have to reinstall the Operating System once to ensure that the issue is with the Hard Drive only.

Need help in formatting or recovery the os.... can anyone help me on it


If you have the original OS disks, you can boot to the CD drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP. One of the steps will ask you if you want to keep the existing Operating system. If you decline and install the OS the next step will ask if you want to format using NTFS. This step will format the drive and then reinstall the OS.

I hope this is what you were looking for. Thanks for using FixYa.

I changed the hard drive in my m400 and i doesnt load windows says somthing about a dianostic disc! what do I do.


You haven't said whether you installed Windows from the original factory discs which came with the laptop. If you haven't done that yet, open the cd tray and put the 1st disc in. Shut down the laptop. Reboot the laptop and it should boot off the disc and ask you if you want to "format" the hard drive. At this point you should be able to follow the on screen instructions until everything is loaded, including all hardware drivers. Any other software you had on your old drive will need to be reinstalled on this drive from the disc. If the software is old you may want to go to the appropriate website for the driver and download the newest version. That should complete your install. Let me know if you need more help.

I bought this computer at a garage sale and it is set up to log on by pressing ctl,alt,delet but I don't have the password is there any way around this


Try this:At startup, before you get the Windows splash screen,hit the F8 key to see if you can start in safe mode. If you can, the password for administrator may not have been set, in which case you can log on without entering one.Otherwise, you'll have to do a reinstall of Windows or, when starting the reinstall, when the computer says it's loading drivers, etc, you can press CTRL F10 and that should get you to the screen where you can see the passwords.

Power on password locked


its some hard to do but maybe you can

. Your notebook
2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)

This is what you have to do:

1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
2. Put the disk in drive A:
3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
5. Remove the disk from drive A:
6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password

sounds like hard disk faliure, suggest getting a new hard disk or perhaps attempt a system reinstall. Its not the fan but the hard disk.
