Have a Toshiba A300. It was running win vista 32bit until the harddrive crashed. The recovery disk that came with the computer was vista 64bit. since the recovery my webcam has not worked. Have installed the drivers successfully, but i think they were for the 32bit operating system. Now i get the message that the camera wont start and to restart the camera or the computer. Is there 64bit drivers for my webcam?

You might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below...

Set msi 171f to factory defaults


Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..

Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.

Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.

Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.


If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):


Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.


At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

How can I restore my Toshiba L305D-S5895 laptop from the recovery disks when the laptop don't even turn on to windows or recognize the HDD? Please help or is the HDD wiped clean somehow? I have windows...


You should be able to boot the computer from the operating system recovery disk. Most likely your harddrive crashed, or one of (many) other issues. It could have just erased your MBR, in which case you can boot with a live cd and recover most (if not all) of your data.

Not recognized Toshiba notebook running Vista.


It is very possible it is a driver issue. What version of vista is this? 32bit or 64bit. You can right click on my computer and click properties. Remove drivers already installed and reinstall them from manufacturers web site. Make sure you keyboard is compatible with vista version you are using. If it is 64bit lots of components are not compatible. Good luck.

32bit vista to 64bit win7


your recovery manager files should be on drive D or other partition. if not then its gone. but the operating system cd that goes with your laptop is still better than the factory default anyway but the thing is, youll need the cd everytime you want to reformat.

if i where you, il go for 32bit win 7 since your computer used to be a 32 bit vista. no worries about making the most out of your computer since win 7 eats less than vista anyway. and go for 32 bit since your laptop is made for 32 bit.

System crashes and i have to reformat after installing msn premium software on new 64 bit vista laptop


you can downgrade to 32bit. you would have to reinstall windows using a 32bit cd. i would recommend it you wont see much of a difference. all programs where originally made for 32 bit. the only difference between the two is that 64bit supports more ram. like xp pro; 32bit will recognize 3.25gb as ram even if you have 4gb installed but other than that not much difference. personally i dont like any 64bit systems nor vista... but with 32bit you will be able to run a wider range of programs with no problem
