Hi there,

The format is easy. The trick is getting your laptop to ever work again.

If the format is absolutely necessary, you need to create and test boot disks with ALL THE DRIVERS the machine needs. If you miss one that is needed by lets say the CD, how are you going to reload an O/S?

Get all the original disks together.

Ask yourself, does this machine really need to be formatted? Somebody told you it did, is not a good enough reason. Specifics. That way alternatives may be suggested.

I trying to help here. I've seen too many of these become wheel chocks and door stops. You're luckier (smarter) than most. They ask after it's too late.

Best regards
Mike

If you have a Recovery CD for your model it most likely contain the device drivers for your laptop.
To format the hard disk use a Windows installation CD that can with your laptop. If not you can use a Windows installation CD, but it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
If you do not have a Recovery CD thenyou will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP version of the device drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.

To format the hard drive, insert the Windows install CD and boot up with this CD. When Windows CD boots up follow the instructions to delete the existing partition, then create a new partition and then format the partition (do a NTSF format, not a quick format). Then follow the instructions to install Windows.

The philippine price 0f toshiba satellite L500.


Price depends on the specific "specie" of the model and what model is available in the Philippines, for instance a Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 EZ1530 is USD 829.60 in Amazon, another model Satellite Pro L500 T5870 is USD 899.95 in Shopbot.com.au. Comparing the prices of laptops abroad and in the Philippines, we usually see +20% to +30% to its peso equivalent, this Toshiba laptop may range from Php 40k to Php 50k. You may need to visit nearby computer shops to know the exact price (sometimes they give promos and special -on-the-day- discounts), but usually still more expensive than the peso equivalent from the prevailing international price. In any case you may try Octagon or Toshiba (in Megamall).
