NO!
Don't believe the hype.

Post the e-mail without the headers... (that's the body only).

Left-click and drag the cursor over and down along the body of the email until it is all highlighted.
Press and release the right mouse button and move the arrow down to "copy" then press and release the left mouse button.
Open up this comment box and left-click in it to select then right-click to bring up menu.
Left-click paste and viola!

Hi-

Are you getting the message when you visit a site on the internet or is it windows that popping the message up? might just be a pop-up for you to purchase things online, if you have the OS install disc then you dont have to worry since you can reinstall the operating system still, just ignore that message. keep me posted then on what will happen ok?

Pls rate as fixya if helpful, thanks!!

How to repair hard drive


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Operating software installation or build CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Boot-up disc</span> </li> <li> <span>System restore CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Backup tape</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Look for tell-tale signs that your computer is about to crash or fail. Extreme slowness, repeated blue screen and noise or clicking are sometimes signs that your computer hard drive is about to crash. When you hear the sound of clicking, scraping or grinding, immediately turn off or shut down your computer. Doing so will prevent any loss of data.<br /> </li> <li> Power down and then power up. Sometimes, hard drive crashes can be easily recovered by doing a power shutdown of the computer. Then, after waiting for a couple of minutes, power it back up again. The initial hard drive crash may not be too serious, but if it happens often, start performing a full system backup, if you haven't been doing so, to be able to recover your data should the inevitable happen.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); PC cable or component connection </span> Ensure that your hard drive and other internal components are seated properly. If Steps 1 and 2 do not work, you may need to open your computer's CPU to check on some of the drive connections. Sometimes connections get dislodged, especially if you move your computer box often. The symptom will manifest as if the hard drive has crashed, giving you a "disk error" when you try to boot up your computer. First, turn off your computer and unplug it. Then remove the case of your computer box. Press on each connector to connect it properly. Put the cover back again, plug the computer and power it back up.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Boot from CD drive with a boot disc </span> Insert your boot disc and try to boot up your computer using the disc. Once you are able to do so, you can reinstall your operating system. After installing your software, proceed to perform data recovery using your ghost CD or backup.<br /> </li> <li> Use an emergency repair disc to get your computer to work again. Then restore from the last known good configuration.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your operating system using the installation or system restore CD that came with your computer when you first purchased it. It will take you through a series of steps that include formatting your hard drive, which will then erase your data. Do this as a last resort.<br /> </li> <li> Recover your data by using a restore and recovery software or using your most recent backup after you have reinstalled the operating system in the previous step.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your applications that did not come with your computer when you bought it. Some examples would be Adobe Photoshop, anti-virus software and movie-making software.<br /> </li></ol> jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); <span>Tips & Warnings</span> <ul> <li> Call technical support if you are unsure of what to do. They can walk you through the important steps. You can also take your computer to a PC technician who, for a fee, will do a system restore and data recovery for you.</li> <li> Make it a habit, even if your computer is healthy, to do a complete backup so your important data will not be lost.</li> <li> Never attempt to open your computer without first powering it off to avoid being electrocuted.</li> <li> Do not open your hard drive case; the components are so sensitive that even a single speck of dust may erase your data.</li></ul>

I dont have recovery CD for my laptop


Being that you don't have the recovery cd, I would probably do the following (in this order):

1. Do a System Recovery (go to Start > Help and Support > type in System Recovery in the search field > look for Run System Recovery Wizard)

2. If the above didn't fix my problem, then I would try to determine if it was a hardware issue (bad RAM, fan, processor, etc) or if it was definitely a software issue (operating system is kaput, virus, etc...)

3. Contact Toshiba and find out how much it would cost to get another Recovery CD.

4. If it costed more than $100 dollars (and you're a little computer inclined) then I would buy myself a fresh Windows XP Home Edition OEM version (runs about $90 if not less)

BUT... before sticking in that cd, make sure that you download the device drivers or back up your device drivers for your system (network driver, graphics drivers, chipset drivers).. once you've backed up those things onto a cd or disk, then I would go ahead and put in a fresh copy of Windows XP and reformat the computer.

Once thats done, you can put in that back cd you made and have the computer find the drivers on your disc when it says "New Hardware Found..." and just make sure you have it search your disc drive.

IF it doesn't cost much to get a Recover CD from Toshiba, then by all means, get it and put that bad boy in. Of course, when formatting anything, back up your files that you need (address book, documents, etc) and then reformat with the CD.

I recently removed and replaced the same hard drive in my laptop which is an HP Pavilion 4400. I booted it up today and I get a message that says there is no operating system detected. The computer will...


Sounds like you bought your new hard drive clean with no . You simply need to put in a boot disc, such as a windows XP installation disc for example, and go through and install the operating system. Look through your CDs you got with your laptop to find a disc with a windows operating system on it, for example Windows XP Home. It may say 'press any key to boot from disc...' along the line so just press any key and you will be on your way to setting up your new system

Hope This Helps

MY TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELTTIE A200 WONT PLAY MY PC GAME I BROUGHT, IT KEEPS SAYING YOUR SYSTEM DOES NOT SUPPORT FULL SCREEN MODE


Hi, it depends what game it is you are trying to play but if it is a recent graphics intensive game you will not be able to play it on your laptop as it will not be up to spec which is why you are receiving that message.

You either need to buy a computer that has a graphics card or buy a games console.

Sorry I don't have any better advice for you except you needing to spend more money!
