SOURCE: Replaced teac dvd-r/cd-rw drive in

if you put it on the same ide ribbon as another drive then youll need to set 1 as master and 1 as slave, theres a jumper setting on the back of your drive. on the top of your drive it should tell you were master is and were slave is, youll need to pull the little black plug out (jumper) and move it to where you want it to be, i.e master or slave

hope it helps

hi there.
you need to change the first boot device in the "cmos setup" or when you boot your computer before it gets to that stage watch the lower bottom line of your machine there are some instructions to go to the cmos setup Toshiba is either F9 or F12. alternatively at this same stage choose the instruction temporary boot device and and move the highlighting to CD/DVD/DVR and click enter to start the computer from the cd rom
it will work.
thanks

SOURCE: System Restore (Destructive) GM5084 Gateway Media Center w/ XP

So you have an OEM Windows disc with the activation code? You should be able to install the OS from this. Try taking the battery out for an hour then installing XP. Also go into setup and set the CDROM as first boot device. If Windows installs go back and change first boot device to HDD. If it still won't install try a different CDROM drive. I have heard that some CDROM drives will not install XP. I don't know why but I've heard this rumor. There is also a jumper on the motherboard that resets the CMOS to default. I think it is J1, J2? Try switching that to the other position and turn on the unit. Shut down and move the jumper back. That is all I can think of right now.

Keep trying in the hopes that it will trigger, and come back- try the F buttons to get to options to try like System Restore, and see if that works (it probably won't, however).
You will have to reload the Restore CD and try to get it working again. Another possibility is that you have a bad hard drive, and will have to buy one and reload the system.
If you can't reload your system, take it into a computer repair shop and have them evaluate the problem. It could possibly be a bad motherboard, but it can be a memory or hard drive problem, and that should be checked before having the motherboard replaced.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: "MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM"

The hard drive is the problem, it probably has bad sectors corrupting the window file system. The hardware needs to be pulled and tested to confirm the diagnosis.

Hello there, At first, go to start menu, all programs, accessories, system tools, open System Restore. Restore your system to restore point created before installing The Print Shop. After that, try to install it again. Otherwise, you can try to install it from different CD, or installation file. Sincerely, Steve TM

I have a toshiba a105s4084 laptop when i use the recovery disk i get an error missage "WRONG MACHINE!" also have had error message NTLDR missing also error: 10e7160017 email ka4sji@juno.com...


You have a serious error on the hard disk caused by incorrect registry entries.
The recovery disk is obviously from a different machine.
If you at the start of booting press F8, hopefully you will get the menu inviting you to recover your system. If you don't, the recovery file is corrupt or missing and you will have to purchase a new OS.
It is probably too late to check for viruses but worth a go with Norton.

How to restore toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 laptop to "out of box" state? I dont have any disks for my laptop,too.


Is there an application on your system that lets you "burn" a set of CD/DVD "System Restore" disks?

Is there a "hidden" System Recovery partition on your disk-drive?

Can you contact Toshiba, and order a set of "System Restore" disks?

I want to restore my a25-3072 laptop back to factory specs.


ok first things first I believe you mean "XP tablet edition" instead of "Desktop Management Interface"
  • A Tablet edition just means laptop version of and operating system. Laptops need different operating systems, than desktops, to function correctly.
Second even if you are using a Tablet edition of XP you can't use it from another computer.
  • When ever you use a restore disk specifically designed for another computer you will get the error message you described.
  • You will need to find the original restore disk for that laptop, or you will need to find a new Tablet version of Windows XP.
Once you install a new version you should stop getting that error message. But it has to be brand new. Please rate me I want to know if I was of any help.
