Hello brownxc

It is unlikely that Toshiba will be able to provide you w/ the recovery CD(s) for your computer. If you don't have the recovery CD(s), you can install the OS (operating system) using an OEM Windows ME CD.

You'll need your product key code. Check the bottom of your laptop for a COA (certificate of authenticity) sticker with the product key code for the operating system (if it is currently not bootable). If your system is still bootable, the product key code can be retrieved from the system registry. (We can help you w/ that.)

The downside of not using the Toshiba recovery CD(s) is you won't get the bundled software back. (Software that came pre-installed w/ your computer.) If you use a Windows ME OEM (original equipment manufacturer) CD, you'll only get the OS. So, you'll need to acquire the installations CDs for your applications, etc.

You should be able to download all the drivers, etc. that you'll need for your laptop from Toshiba's web site. Do this b-e-f-o-r-e you begin the recovery or OS installation process so that, as you're prompted for drivers during the course of the installation, you'll be able to provide them at the time.

Please, let us know if we can be of any more assistance.

Good Luck!

    You can find quite a bit of info., downloads (including drivers and utilities), specs, etc. HERE related to your Toshiba Satellite 2805-S202. Unfortunately, you cannot download the recovery CD(s) nor the bundled software.

    You can call Toshiba's laptop customer service center if you like to see if the CDs might be available. Likely, they are not but it won't hurt to try.

    Their no. is: 800-457-7777

Unusual to have parity on most computers. Memtest86 will diagnose your memory without an operating system. Download it on another machine, burn a CD or floppy, then run on this machine.

LAN CARD DRIVER FOR TOSHIBA SATELLITE 2805-S202.


Assuming you're talking about the mini-PCI Intel 10/100 Ethernet card that's built in, Toshiba's support site only has the drivers for Win98SE:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=1073810429&rpn=PS280U&modelFilter=&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663.

This driver can also be used for Windows 98 and ME.

Now, if you're running Windows 2000, you can use the LAN card driver for Windows 2000 under model # 2805-S201. It will work 100%.

If you're running XP, you don't need to install a driver as it is automatic.

Computer will not read floppy disk


You have a bad floppy drive. In this system you almost have to gut it to replace the floppy drive, although used floppy drives should be pretty cheap on eBay. If this is a one-time thing, a USB floppy drive should do the job just as well.
