Recovery disc toshiba satellite m55. I inserted the recovery disk so I could erase the laptop's brain and start over (It had major issues). I inserted the disc and it has now come to a black screen that says Starting Windows 98 Windows is bypassing your startup files Miscrsoft (R) Windows 98 A:\> It has been sitting at this screen for a while and I don't know what to do. What is odd is that this computer has Windows XP so i was wondering if I was given the wrong disc. I bought it new so that seems strange as well.

    that sounds like a boot disk. The disk you are referring to ... is it a cdrom or a floppy disk?

You should have received a recovery cdrom when you purchased the computer. If you did not receive one I recommend contacting them to get one.

    Does the cd say Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility ? Or what is the exact wording on the cd? Sounds like what they sent you was a Recovery Utility that you use to create a Recovery Disk.

    Try this ... if the recovery files are on the HDD you can access them.
    1. Shut down computer
    2.Hold down the zero(0) key and turn on the computer while holding that key.
    3. When the computer boots you should be at the Recovery screen with the option to Restore the Original Factory Installation.
    Good Luck

I can not make my recovery disc.


Hi there.
I'm sorry to tell you that when you reformatted the drive you deleted the recovery partition and all the recovery information on it, this is why the recovery disk creator cannot be launched and is giving you an error.
Thankfully for you, you created a recovery disk before you wiped the drive so this is your only way of restoring the system so make a back-up copy of the recovery disk you made and keep it safe as the problem cannot be solved because you deleted the recovery partition.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Recovery Error


Do recovery again, when it asks you to insert disc 2, take out disc one and close the tray. Do not put the disc 2 yet. If you can see the error message again, then it is a RAM issue. You need to reseat the Memory module and try to do the recovery again.

If you closed the tray then no error message came up, it would be an issue with your recovery disc and order for a new one. You can contact Toshiba to have the recovery replaced due to corrupt media.

Hope this helps.

Sound drivers for Xp sp2


For specific models with different chipset drivers, you can get the sound driver & pretty much everything else on support.toshiba.com. If you can't connect to the Internet, "Tecra, Portege", & sometimes "Qosmio" models came with a built-in HDD recovery, meaning you need to create your recovery disk by running the "Recovery Disk Creator". An application to create your recovery disk. A shortcut is created on the desktop by default, if you cannot find it there, try looking at "C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator" & run the "exe" file, it should give you a menu to create one. After creating the disk, you can use that disc to install the drivers for all Toshiba pre-installed devices/softwares on that machine. For Satellite models, the disc should come with the laptop when you boughtt it. When you have the disc, just insert it inside of windows, it will give you options to install the driver & software for a specific toshiba device.


Hope this helps.
