    I installed Windows xp home on the a15 s157 then went to Toshiba website to get the drivers. Everything loaded except for the usb drivers and I can't locate them anywhere. I don't have the recovery cd either and don't know where to locate one. Do you know where and what driver is needed? Do you know where I can get a replacement cd?

    Thanks,

    John

You can try calling Toshiba direct and hope the have them available. (800) 457-7777. If not you'll need to buy a copy of Windows and install all the drivers from Toshiba's web site.

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.

I just bought ASUS K61IC-x3, where is preloaded windows 7 home premium x64. Also I have 2 recovery disks from ASUS - windows 7 x64 and windows 7 x32. If I want to set up windows 7 x32, do I need to buy...


Windows 7 x32 recovery disk is used when you have to recover the Windows 7 x32 from a disaster. It works very well but when you want to install or setup Windows 7 x32you have to buy a new Windows 7 x32. Once it is setup and you use your system and you find that the Windows 7 x32 is making some serious problems then you use Window 7 x32 recovery disk. These disks are not the same.

Hope I answered the question.

Good Luck!

Toshiba 15.4'' A205-S5000 need system recovery disks that come with this computer / WindowsVista


If you bought the machine new, they were furnished or you should have been able to create the disks on blank media.
Search eBay, craigslist or the Toshiba web site.

You should be able to get them from Toshiba support:

Installed new hard drive into Toshiba M35X-S163 due to old HD completely breaking, installed new 320gb HD, but the recovery disk from Toshiba doesn't want to work, keeps 'cycling' the recovery process,...


You will need to talk to whoever you got the HD from. It should have come with a format disk since HD have barely changed over the last ten years they can still be setup for just about anything form FAT16 to the latest Mac use.
The reason you are having troubles is that the HD doesn't know what format you are giving it. Whenever i have bought a new HD it comes with a disc to format then you are good to use the OS disc to load up it is possible that the recovery disc is setup only for a Toshiba setup HD and not another generic format. you might what to call the toshiba help line (800) 457-7777 that is straight from their website. Best of luck my friend

I just bought my Acer E725 laptop and not up to 3 weeks after, i put it on and it doesn't boot or it just shows the setup booting page for a long time without booting.


The operative system must be reinstalled. If you have the recovery CD set you can try doing a system recovery.
To reinstall the system start the laptop with recovery CD inside, and chose start from CD when asked.

Since the laptop is still on warranty you can also contact Acer at the number printed on the user manual.
