Probably the easiest way to resolve this issue is by following the steps outlined below.

1. Shut down the computer.
2. Turn the computer on and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
3. use the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and press enter.
4. Window is should start with a "Help" window.
5. In the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?"
Click on that and "Click to open System Restore"
6. click on that and a new window comes up recommending restoring to a previous state.
7. Click ok and the operating system should restore your computer successfully and reboot into normal mode.

My toshiba a205 s4607 is stuck at the welcome screen.. i tried pressing f12 but nothing happens. when i press f2 it just says please wait and never works. i dont know whats wrong. i want to reformat it but...


I don't think it is your hard drive but here is what you could do:
Press F8 at start up to enter start options, choose safe mode with networking or last known good configuration.
Use the built in system recovery, press F11 or F12 at start up to enter recovery partition.
Use a set of recovery disc to do a system repair or to install new original operating system.
Order the recovery disc set from the website by model and serial number.

My computer is dead.I dont know how to reinstall from recovery CD-room.I tried but I do not see the blue screen start up.


Hi there,If you have the Windows Install CD, you're on the right track.Make sure the CD is in your CD/DVD drive before you turn on the computer. As soon as you power the computer on, hit F8 until you see a menu come up, asking what you want to boot from. (If F8 does not work, try it again with F2, ESC, and Enter).When you see the menu, select CD/DVD Drive.You will then see on the screen "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." - Press any key on your keyboard.After that, you'll see the files start to load, then you'll get to the blue screen. From there, you can follow the onscreen instructions!Good luck!Alex

I cant get my computer to operate in windows normal mode and i cant get to reboot to originao settings acer 5738z, i bought a recovery disc but cant even get this to load as can nly have laptop on in...


I believe you should try LKGC (Last Known Good configuration) before using a recovery disc.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

Having problems rebooting from recovery disk


Hi,

The laptop should have a hidden recovery partition on it to return it back to factory settings.
Make sure the laptop is switched off and then 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.

If there is no recovery partition then to get it to boot from the CD/DVD drive repeatedly press the F12 key as you start the laptop up.


If you need anymore help please post back.



Regards.

Hi there. If you already tried using other options from the windows advanced option and nothing works then you laready have a corrupted Operating system. Your hardware is okay but you just can't boot to windows since it's corrupted.

You may re-install the operating system using the recovery cds that came with the machine.

Access the Quick boot menu by pressing F12 the moment you see Toshiba Logo then insert the Operating System recovery cd. Use the up or down arrow keys to select DVD/CDRW, press Enter and keep tapping the spacebar until you see windows is loading files. If your OS (operating system) is a Vista, you will see Windows set-up EMS enabled hig-lighted... press Enter and you'll see "Windows is loading files".

If you're re-installing windows XP, just follow the instruction on the blue screen.

If you're re0installing Vista, get back to me so I can give you further instructions.

Ran the Tshibery disk recovery disk. Completed and


Complete the recovery again but leave the discs in the computer. That way if the computer needs some files while rebooting it will take them off the cd....if not it will load and that will be the end of that. Just remember when you boot the computer for the first time to initiate the recovery, when it says to boot from cd touch any key...that is only done one time when you first initiate the recovery...after that do not touch any key if it says that...just let windows boot on it own. Once windows boots on its own, then you can take the recovery disc out and put it away.

I get a blue screen on my computer...


My 3500 has just gone through the same issues. I had to reload, from the recovery CDs, the entire system (losing all the data on the hard drive). If you need data from your HD do not run the recovery, you may need to send it out for data recovery. If you have backed up your data, the recovery process is tedious and will reset the system to 2003 or what ever date the machine was sold which then requires updating the software from both Toshiba and Windows XP.
I tried a new HD but that made the problems worse. I did find that my recovery discs were faulty and I got replacements from Toshiba (took about a week).
