Reinstalling Windows - Express Media Player not Installing
The Satellite M70 is running very slowly. I am planning on reinstalling windows. All files have been backed up. I understand I need to install Express Media Player prior to using the Product Recovery disk. (The CD says, "For Full Recovery, insert this CD first." When I insert the EMP CD, I see the files, but nothing starts. There are 2 setup files with an extension of .conf and .tgz however, they won't start.
Any ideas? (I also have the Toshiba Recovery CD.)

Toshiba has a wacky express media partition which you must delete before you can use your recovery disks. You should remove your drive if you can and using another computer, reformat BOTH using the manage function in my computer.

You don't have to reinstall windows to speed up your pc but if that's what you choose to do I will help. Turn off your pc. When you restart it, look near the top and it will say something like press F1 or press F2 for recovery and after you press the key it will ask for your recovery cd. If this solves your problem please rate as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

some of your operating system files is missing/corrupt, that's why the main windows cannot open/load.
You will need to repair your windows operating system (win xp/vista), in other to solve this problem.
To repair your windows, you will be needing a windows operating system CD, insert it into your player and run setup. While you are installing, it will get to a stage where the system will ask you if you want to restore, click restore and the missing/corrupt files will be reinstalled.
As you have not mention what file is missing or the missing files is related to some application or Operating System, I'm answering the question by thinking that you need to reinstall the Operating System.

You will have to reinstall windows xp on your pc. It is recommened that you perform a clean installtion, i.e, reinstalling windows after completely formatting your hard disk. Therefor you will need to backup all your data before starting this process. Make sure that the partion where you are installing xp has at least 40GB Space. Here is a detailed tutorial from MICROSOFT on reinstalling XP. Visit this link : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941
There was a problem with this happening on certain machines in regards to an old Windows XP service pack 3 release. If you've recently upgraded to service pack 3 there is a rather technical solution to this problem involving booting from your XP cd, using the system recovery command line tool to copy a new .dll file into your Windows system files. If you're not technically inclined, don't bother tryin got do this. Another option is to reinstall Windows, it would be best to format before reinstalling, unless you have files or programs you need on the hard drive that you cannot recover. Simply reinstalling Windows without a format might not harm your file or programs, but no gauruntee there. You can read through this thread here on Microsoft's forums to follow this fix. http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3163197&SiteID=17
If you did not install SP3 or if you have quite awhile ago and there was no problems up untill now, then it is probably related to your computer directly. I have a Satellite M100 which had overeating problems, which will cause the computer to restart constantly. Try cleaning out the vents (if you have a warantee, send in to them and have them fix it). Another option is to buy a laptop cooling pad, they range around $50 or so. You could go to a store like Best Buy or Circuit City or order online at places like Tiger Direct or Newegg.
