Take out battery from it, and re-insert it after 15 minutes or so. This must make it a hard reset. If it too doesn't help you, make sure there is a software corruption has been occurred. Re-install the O/S is the only solution. Electro help
Use the computer you are on to download the updated driver for the network adapter from the Toshiba Website. After you have the updated driver install it on the computer your having a problem on. Reboot the computer. If the problem is still there and you have a cable connected to the network connection and to the router, uninstall the network adapter from the device manager and reboot the computer. That should detect and install the adapter and resolve the problem. If it doesn't there is a problem with the network adapter and you will need to use the wireless of get a PCMCIA card to use for networking. Toshiba does use a replaceable Network card in some laptops, if nothing else above works and you don't want to get another card to plug in you may want to look into purchasing a new card from Toshiba to replace the old one.
you can try a couple of things, on the back of the router is a small reset button, you will need a pen or pencil to push this button, hold it in for 10 sec. or so, until the router resets, and try to connect then, or unplug router, leave off for 10-15 sec. plug back in and wait fir it to reset this way, or a more involved way is to go to your DOS or command prompt window, type in this as follows
(wait a few seconds for this to do its thing)
ipconfig /renew (if this doesnt work ask your parents if they put a block on the router)
Allright this one can be tricky so we need to isolate the problem between software and hardware.
First, get into the bios and see it's being detected.
If not then turn off the computer and unscrew the drive from the laptop, MAJORITY of laptops
only need to have one screw unscrewed to release the drive. If yours
doesn't then you'll have to do a little more work, let's just assume
you have the majority for now.
Next, pull the drive out, feel free to give the back connector a quick puff of air, now carefully place the drive back into the laptop so that it's nice and tight.
That model Toshiba does not come with a recovery CD, does not have a restore partition, and does not allow you to creat a recovery disc when working normally, so unfortunatly you have 2 choices.
1. Call Toshiba and try to get them to mail you a recovery disk, if they have any they will likely charge you for the disk + shipping.
2. Reinstall windows manually using a clean install, you can use any OEM windows disk as long as it is the same version as your windows product key on the bottom of the laptop (i.e XP Home/XP PRO/ XP MCE/ or VISTA - all vista disks are basically the same and have all 3 versions on them)
Make sure you have backups of the drivers for your network adapter and other hardware before doing a clean install.
Damn you should have an internet connection first. Then buy a modem or a internet card (for broadband or any other type). Install the drivers. Goto start then control panel\network and internet connection and create an internet connection depending on the type you subscribe.
Or alternately don't do anything ask the customer care to setup it for you.
