    My 14 year old picked up a NASTY virus on this machine even with a firewall and mcaffee I was opting to rease it's brain. System would not allow me to run a virus scan - would only scan 1 file and say the machine was clean. Had to put caps on to enter the password even though the password was in lowercase. Had sticky keys stuck on and every key sent you around the machine - yuck!!!!

    I am at the system preparation tool

    and I have a choice of Facoty, audit or reseal do you have any advise for this section

  • 3krolls Mar 12, 2008

    yes

  • 3krolls Mar 12, 2008

    Thankyou Thank You Thank You - the computer has clean thoughts. I chose factory then when it was finished I ran the audit selection and now I am resealing. I will put the mcaffee back on it and maybe the poor thing will live though a few more years with a teenager!



    You are my HERO!!!

    if that doesn't do anything ... reboot with the disk in the drive hitting F12 on the boot. Sounds like they have really had a bad time with recovery cds at Toshiba.

What's your problem?how do i set my old computer to factor settings


you will need to put the windows disc into the cdrom drive, and set the bios so it boots from cdrom first,
if you didnt get a windows disc you should have been asked to make a recovery disc when you first bought the pc, and same procedure with setting bios.

Cdrom drive can not eject / Cdrom is stuck


How To Eject CD from CD-ROM drive if it is Stuck :

If you have a CD into CD-ROM drive and it is stuck and you are trying to eject tray of CDROM by pressing the eject button or windows eject command but CD won't eject as there is no command to eject a stuck compact disc from the CDROM drive then this article is for you.

Step 1: Switch off the computer.

5573fa0.jpgStep 2. On the front of the CD-ROM drive you may find a small hole called Emergency Eject hole below the tray of CD-ROM drive . Take a long pin around 3 inch, (also known as CD ejector) it must be hard enough, insert this pin inside the hole and push a little. The CD tray will slightly move to out.

Step 3: Now you may manually pull the tray and you are done. You have successfully ejected the stucked CD.

Step 4: Switch on the computer and you may work as usual.

Thanks

MY SCREEN IS FROZEN ON WINDOWS START UP


Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I have a Maxtor One Touch III, which I've used very little on XP with no trouble. Changed to Win7 home premium to access some old files and though the HDD shows up in Device Manager, it will not show in...


Restart your computer with the Operating system Setup disk in the CDROM drive. If you are prompted to press a key to start the computer from CDROM, do so quickly. Otherwise it may try to boot from the hard drive. After a few minutes, you'll see a prompt to press the R key to start the Recovery Console. When Recovery Console starts, it will prompt you to enter a number corresponding to the Windows XP installation that you need to repair. In most cases, you'll enter "1" (which will be the only choice). If you press ENTER without typing a number, Recovery Console will quit and restart your computer. Enter your Administrator password. If you don't enter the correct password, you cannot continue. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type fixmbr and then verify that you want to proceed. Your damaged MBR will be replaced with a shiny new one, and you should then be able to boot your system normally. In some cases, you may need to repair the boot sector in addition to the MBR. If your system still doesn't boot properly, repeat the steps above, but issue the fixboot command instead. Hope this helps

My comp. was crashing at defferant time & message fault NTLDR


Use the commands
FIXBOOT and
FIXMBR in the
"Repair mode" of Windows XP installation or XP Recovery Console
for vista Recovery Environment or if you have recovery disk/disc you can use it

==============================

That error indicates a partition problem, you need to full format your harddisk and removing all partion and do a fresh install. Regarding your Win XP CD, just configure the BIOS to first BOOT to your CDROM

Hope this work for you ^_^

My computer keeps saying windows error recovery


If you can try to go the command prompt and do chkdsk /p or r. Or insert the vista dvd and boot from the cdrom by pressing f12 or sometimes it depends on what kind of system you have, and then choose windows error recovery tool and choose the command prompt or if you can also do system restore from there.

My pc cdrom/dvd drive failed to read my recovery cd


Are you attempting to boot from a bootable disc? A failed drive can cause the other on the bus not to work. Try each one separate set as master or cs (cable select).
