Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S2131 Notebook

2 Answers

I need a free anti-virus program compatible with a Toshiba a75-s1253. Any newer one I install is too big and bogs down the computer. I'd appreciate any advice you can give me! Thank you.

Toshiba A75-S1253 running 3.2 GH 448 Ram runs very slow


When windows starts it loads some programs, services and etc. When you install new software it might starts automatically when windows starts and might be displayed in tray. For example Antivirus software, audio driver and etc. To view the list of startup programs go to start menu. if you have xp hit run and type "msconfig" without ", if you have 7 type "cmd" in search field, when it finds program click on it and then in black windows type "msconfig". It will open new window. Go to StartUp tab and see what programs start automatically with windows. There might be useless programs which should be disabled. Also this list is good target for viruses.
If the list is small enough and few programs are listed, Consider that long time use of widnows decrease system performance. In this case you should reinstall windows.
And one more thing. In My Computer on desktop check free space of system disk (generally c:). There should be enough space to create temporary files and etc.

Satellite A75-s1253 will turn off when the windows logo shows and startup again. This loop is on going no matter how it starts safe mode , last know configuration, all those options do the same.


This means that the startup files needed to boot up are already corrupted or missing. If no important files are on the computer then you can easily reinstall the operating system by doing a clean install/format. If there are lots of files you can either do a parallel/dirty installation( installing an operating system on top of the corrupted one) so that you can still back-up your files.
If you want to know what cause the error, you can hit F8 key(5 times) as soon as the computer turns on, and you'll be routed to the advanced boot option, choose "Disable Automatic Restart". So that once it encountered an error it will be displayed on the screen.

I think my computer has no virus protection and everytime I try and download some it says I need to download a newer version of windows but also I have to appearently download a newer version of microsoft...


Which version of Windows are you using:
* Windows 95
* Windows 98
* Windows NT
* Windows 2000

Note that as of 13-July-2010, *NONE* of the above Operating Systems are supported by Microsoft. So, some anti-virus programs will *NOT* run on those "retired" Operating Systems;
you need to install a newer version of Microsoft Windows.

From another computer with Internet access,
download the FREE anti-virus software:

http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials

and copy the downloaded file to a USB memory-stick.

Move the memory-stick to your computer, and connect it.
Run the downloaded program on that memory stick, to install the anti-virus software onto your computer.

  5. Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
  6. Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)

Reboot to factory settings w/o startup disk Satelite A75-S1253


Hi there,
If it has a recovery partition you should be able to access it by pressing the 0 key while powering the laptop on. Give that a shot and see if the Toshiba recovery wizard comes up.
