You should get in touch with them as they must provide a disc or recovery parition which was bought when they bought that laptop.

If you have a Windows XP disk then you can normally install by going into BIOS and setting CD as first boot device. If it gives hard drive not found then you will need to install the SATA driver from the Toshiba website first.

Toshiba qosmio f45-av412 boot options


When you start your computer, just keep on pressing the 'del' key or F2 key which allows you to enter the BIOS setup.

In this setup you will find the boot device priority option , you just need to use these options to select the device which you want to boot.

If by boot options you mean you want to go to safe mode, then just press the f8 key while your PC starts to boot so that you have a menu asking you to go in safe mode or choose other options.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Sajjad

I need to reset the bios on my toshiba qosmio f45-av412 please help1


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

I only get a flashing cursor in left top corner even after trying restores, formatting and using recovery disk. I've checked out the hard drive and the computer for virus. No problems. What can I do?


The flashing cursor is there to tell you that the BIOS couldn't load the OS. Reinstall one more time. If even that it behaves like that then the hard disk is dead, replace it.

ERROR INSTALLING PREINST3.SWM


The work around for this is to take the Toshiba restore disk and do a dvd copy disk to disk and use the copies to restore the computer. I had the same problem and the disk would not read correctly. I called Toshiba and they were no help. I saw a post on another web log and they suggested copying the origianl restore disks. They copies ran without a problem.
