Don't use system restore. Use the disk that came with it if you have it. Sounds like a virus or spyware.
Hit f8 or f5 when it starts to see if you can get an install screen if you do not have a disk. You can try this below.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

Window washer free download.

Enable the microphone on a toshiba equium


you need to get a mic / headset
ive even found them in the £1 shop
and they work aok

on the front of the equium is wo sockets and a small volume rotory control
place the green plug into he headphone socket
and the other plug into the mic input socket

the equium doesnt have a built in mic

so you need to do this
once this is done you can open the volume control {task bar} or the realtek applet in the control panel
or .. just the windows sound applet
fine the mic input section and check its not muted
you can use skype echo test to make the levels good and test it out
windows all also allow you too do this

my advice with the equium and XP is too go to the realtek site and download the AC97 driver from there
it works better

ive retired my equium now but it still works fine and i enjoyed writing over 2GB of code and projects on it ..

good old equium

My DVD Rom of Toshiba Satelite 1800 laptop needed to be changed because the DVD tray cable was torn. When I replaced the new DVD ROM the laptop is not detecting it and it even takes a long time to boot....


I think dear speed of proccessor and the speed of you DVD ROM is deferent that is, you proccessor is faster than your cd rom or vice-versa is also possible, I would rather suggest you to know the speed your old DVD ROM and get another of same speed like old one, or just try changing cable of your old DVD rom and use it.

Dics Drive Upgrade for Toshiba Satillate.


As far as i know thats impossible. Your optical diskdrive is made just for those speeds that you have on it. You cant change the manufacture settings and speed it upp, or make it to an dual layer disk.
Buy a new one whit the needs that u want and replace the old one. Its easy done and its not that expensive.

Good luck to you

My laptop cant find my new dvd rom


It might be an operating system problem, something in the registry.
If you use windows, update to the last service pack to fix the registry, and install the DVD driver before mounting it
if you use vista try to download the driver before installing the DVD. Still many devices does not work with vista.
Thanks for using fixya…good luck and don’t forget to rate this…

Upgrade the processor on a Toshiba equium l40 series from a celron M


The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.

Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.

Hope that helps?
