System recovery error


WOW, once again the recovery fails when you need it most. I don't understand why the manufacturers don't just give you a CD with the operating system and one with the Recovery when you purchase a system like they did years ago.

Did this error occur on a recovery image that you made (Cd's) or was it from using the Recovery Partition on the hard disk drive that the manufacturer set up? Either way, I think your best option is to just reinstall windows.

Computer was wiped and I am trying to also figure out how to get a boot disc from toshiba. it was never with the computer to begin with.


you don't need a start up disk from toshiba. A regular Windows instalation CD/DVD is enough.If your computer was wiped, there's a chance the Toshiba startup disk will not start either.
If you use an OEM version of your Windows (have a windows key sticker on your laptop), then download an OEM Toshiba version. Use this LINK for more information.
When you have the Windows CD, you just need to repartition the disk and reinstall windows.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
htd7c02140000r0136063.jpg
Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

    htd7c02140000r0136067.jpg

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

The PXE-E61 is the error code for No Network Bootable Device Found. Which means the computer cannot find your hard drive and is looking for a network drive to boot from. Either your internal hard drive has failed, or it is not seated or operating properly. Troubleshoot the hard drive, either it is dead or there is an interface problem between the drive and the motherboard or BIOS setting.

Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

My mini dell inspiration laptop sends me an error


This error comes up if the computer is not able to detect the hard drive. Power off the computer. Power it back on and tap the number 2 key 4 - 5 times at the Dell logo screen. This will take you to the system setp screen. Check if you see any thing listed next to solid state drive. If you dont see any thing try reseating the hard drive. Here are the steps to reseat the hard drive.. If you see an entry next to the solid state drive. You'll need to reinstall windows on the computer. If you have been shipped XP you will need an external CD drive to reinstall windows. If the system was sen with ubantu try to download it to a usb drive and boot off it.

Reinstall


To reinstall the Operating System? (Examples: Windows XP or Windows Vista) If you have the Full Installation Disk, and the computer plugged into power and turned on, insert it in the CD/DVD drive. Close the CD/DVD drive.

If the disk does not automatically start up, press the CTRL, ALT, and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart your computer. When the computer manufacturer logo comes up, look VERY closely at the bottom of your monitor screen. You are looking for the key on your keyboard to press, that will let you enter the BIOS Setup. (Older computers its stated as -> Enter CMOS Setup)

It may state -> enter Setup. Or it may state -> Change Setup. Or something similar.
This screen goes by VERY fast. You may have to restart the computer a few times to see it. Write it down.
Once you see the key you need, be ready to start tapping this key in two second intervals, right after you restart the computer again.

When you are in BIOS Setup, look for the Boot Options menu, and enter it. Change the first boot device to CDROM. Be sure to press the F10 key when you have made this change, press the -> Y key, and then press the Enter key.

Your computer will now restart, and boot from the Full Installation Disk you have in the CD/DVD drive.

You can also go to your computer manufacturers website, look for -> Support, and click on it. In the search box on this page, type your computer model name, and model number. On this page look for Contact Us. (HP is Contact HP)
Email them, or call them and tell them you need the Restoration Disk. Some call it the Recovery Disk, or System Recovery Disk.
When you get the disk, put it in your CD/DVD drive tray, close the tray. Let it load. When it aks you, I suggest you click on -> Repair, not Fresh Install.
