I have the same computer. Recently, it started shutting down without noticed after an hour use, sometime earlier after heavy use. I did a Google search and find out that some Toshiba has overheating problem, and it was recommended to clean it the heat sink. If that is dirty the heat can not escape. I used a vacuum cleaner to **** out the dirt. It worked after so far.
A year ago, I had an other problem, I upgraded the memory, I used the Vista memory test. It did not reported errors. It became unstable, it would run for weeks without problem when for no reason would give file read errors, and all kind of problems,... So I created a bootable USB drive with memtes on it. My Toshiba booted to a linux op. and run the "memtest". It reported error on my newly installed memory. ... I used the recovery disk to have a clean start.
Also, during those times and sometime after, I've got those message, your window can be start, do you want to rollback to a previous point. Many time that message can be ignored, and just persist to start Window normally. Eventually it will, (if you know that your memory is working). I hope this helped.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:

Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to FixYa!
There are 2 process you could used when it come to cases like this:
1. If its the power settings causing this just follow this steps. Here are the steps:
  • Turn off your computer and unplugged all wires connected to it (including power).
  • Remove the battery from the bottom of the computer. There will be two tabs labeled 1 and 2.
  • Re-plug in the power wire. (the battery should not be in the computer) Turn the power on. The screen will work. Choose start windows normally. (if you get that screen).
  • Go to the start menu then click Control Panel -> (Mobile PC) -> Power Options -> Under Balanced choose change plan settings.
  • Choose Change advanced power settings.
  • Find Processor power management and change the minimum processor state from 5% to 100% for each On battery and Plugged in. Click Apply then OK.
  • Shut down the computer and removed the power cord.
  • Re-install the battery on the bottom of the laptop, plug in the power cord, and restart the computer.
2. If its the boot files being corrupted as the one causing this, you could used this as well.
First BACKED UP your files to an external hard drive using Puppy Linux. You could used this link: (http://www.puppylinux.org/)
Once you are done backing up your file then follow this:
  • Booted up the computer and pressed and held down F12 (boot)
  • Insert the Toshiba recovery disc (there should be a disc one and two).
  • Selected CD/DVD from boot menu
  • Go to Toshiba recovery wizard then go to the second option (format/delete everything off of hard drive)
  • Restart the computer
  • Re-load the disc
  • Select Toshiba recovery wizard and then select the first option.
  • Once the wizard began, wait until it asked you to insert disc two. Continue from there.
Hope this helps you. Have a nice day and thank you for using FixYa!

Hi

Try to remove the battery and charger, hold on power button for about 50-60seconds, then plug-in the charger and turn the laptop ON, see what happens.
If it started, unplug the charger, plug-in the battery, and start the laptop again.

For the recovery discs, if the original windows wasn't formatted, you can get recovery discs from windows, using Toshiba recovery media backup.

Please tell us your results
Good Luck

We have just reinstalled windows on a toshiba satellite t2050 laptop and the drivers for the network adaptors were not installed...we cannot connect to the internet...any suggestions?


there should've been a restore disc that came with the computer. If you have it you will be able to restore drivers offline. If it didn't come with one you may have a model where the back up/restore disc needs to be burned from the hdd.

Hi, my old laptop Toshiba Satellite A100 is


I take it that the recovery disc came with the laptop in which case all the drivers will be there.

I'm more concerned that it is "riddled with viruses and adwar" which you can't remove!

Why?

Do you not use an Anti virus program?

What's going to happen to your new computer?

For some models, however -- including those listed above -- booting from the Recovery disc requires pressing the F12 key, rather than the 'C' key. The instructions below are correct for these models.
CAUTION: The Recovery process reformats the computer's hard disk drive, which completely erases its contents -- including all applications, all documents, and all other data stored on the drive. Be sure to back up your documents and other data before following the instructions below.
Follow these steps to erase the current contents of the hard disk drive and to re-install all of the software that was installed on the computer when it was manufactured:
1. With the computer on, insert the first Recovery disc into the optical drive.
2. Shut down the computer (click the Start button, click Shut Down, select Shut Down, click OK).
3. Press the computer's power button to turn the computer on, and then immediately press and hold the F12 key. Release the F12 key when the menu of boot options appears.
4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the CD/DVD option. Press the Enter key to select it.
The computer will restart, and will boot from the Recovery disc.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to start the Recovery process.
CAUTION: Once the Recovery process has begun, do not interrupt it.

The computer's hard drive will be formatted, erasing its contents. All of the software that was installed on the computer when it was manufactured will then be re-installed.
6. Once the Recovery process is complete, remove the Recovery disc, and press any key to restart the computer.

Startup


You'll have to check if windows is loading before it restarts. If windows starts loading before it shuts down and just loops all over again, you can easily fix this by simply re-installing your operating system. you can do this by booting from the recovery discs that came with the laptop. Now if the rebooting cycle happens before windows starts loading then this could either be a RAM or a motherboard issue and will need to be serviced.

If you don't have a copy of the recovery discs, you can always call Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 and purchase one from them.
