Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6177 Notebook

Open Question

I have a Toshiba Satellite P105-S6177 PC Notebook. I had to do a factory cd reinstall of vista home basic 32 bit.I removed all partitions and formatted the drive (it took close to 8 hrs). Then I had trouble installing an early setup file (preinst.wsm). it did install and the recovery process 'completed' both cd's. when I attempt to start the computer it hangs on the windows splash screen. if I try safe mode, I get an error message stating, installation can't complete in safe mode. Is there any way for me to finish the install?

Here's How:
Boot From the Windows XP CD

To enter Recovery Console in Windows XP, you will need to boot from the Windows XP CD.

  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
Press R to Enter Recovery Console

When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.

Choose the Windows Installation

The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.

Enter the Administrator Password

The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis.
To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.

Make Necessary Changes in Windows XP Recovery Console

The Recovery Console is now fully loaded and the cursor should be sitting at the command prompt, ready for input, as shown in the screen shot above.
Make any changes necessary in the Windows XP Recovery Console. When complete, take out the Windows XP CD and type exit to restart the computer.

  1. When you reach the command prompt (detailed in Step 6 in the link above), type the following command and then press Enter.
    bootcfg /rebuild
  2. The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.
  3. The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  4. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
  5. The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
    Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
  6. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

SOURCE: how to recovery the system from recovery partition

Did you know you only get ONE shot at creating a recovery disc? And most of the time it is garbage, just like Vista.

He tried to put XP on it and failed? weird.

A couple things you can do...

1. Get your hands on a Vista disk. If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow a Vista disk. Do a complete fresh install. Use your "Product Key" and you will have your own Licensed, perfectly legal version of Vista.

2. Get yourself a copy of XP. Delete all partitions, then create a new one. Don't try to save that Vista recovery partition...it's toast. I recommend XP, but I'm a dinosaur.

If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow

SOURCE: how to recovery the system from recovery partition

As far as I know (I have a Toshiba though a few years old now) and do a Recover to Factory Default state from Hidden Partition every 6 to 9 months and I hav enever been told to Tap F1 but instead Hold down "0" i.e he Zero button on my laptop as I turn the Laptop On from an Off state by pressing the Pwr Button and ONLY release the "0" button when I get a Recovery Meny with 4 Options I think.

Your Model might be a different Button on the Keyboard so PLEASE check your User Guide/Manual for instruction.

Instead of doing an automated recovery, try system restore. This helps when automated recovery cannot find a solution

In need of restoring to factory settings, (Toshiba Satellite M45). Held down zero, powered on, no beeps occur. The recovery utility never appears. Not listed in All Programs for Hard Disk Utility nor in...


It appears the recovery partition has been removed from your hard disk. You need to obtain a Recovery CD from Toshiba.
OR
If you have a Windows XP Home installation CD then you can use it to reinstall Windows on your Toshiba and the product installation code will be on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.

You can download thedevice drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from theirdownload page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get thecorrect drivers.

I need to know what processor ...I can upgrade a P105-S6177 Toshiba with....I need something in the 2.4 range and an upgrade video card to 256mb


You won't be able to upgrade past 2.13ghz but you can upgrade the video card no problem. Cheapest place to get one is ebay. Just ebay for "p105 video card" and a bunch will pop up.

Hope this info helps!

Oh I would search the net and even call Toshiba to verify the fastest cpu you can get. Make sure you get the model number of the CPU that will help you track it down easily. And BEFORE you install new cpu make sure you are running the latest bios firmware version before upgrade ;)

HOW TO FACTORY RESET TOSHIBA SATELLITE NOTEBOOK


That model Toshiba does not come with a recovery CD, does not have a restore partition, and does not allow you to creat a recovery disc when working normally, so unfortunatly you have 2 choices.

1. Call Toshiba and try to get them to mail you a recovery disk, if they have any they will likely charge you for the disk + shipping.

2. Reinstall windows manually using a clean install, you can use any OEM windows disk as long as it is the same version as your windows product key on the bottom of the laptop (i.e XP Home/XP PRO/ XP MCE/ or VISTA - all vista disks are basically the same and have all 3 versions on them)

Make sure you have backups of the drivers for your network adapter and other hardware before doing a clean install.
