If it is a video cd - it can be opened from Windows Media Player, Winamp, Nero Vision and many other video players available on net. By inserting the CD inside, windows will open a dialog box asking you, with which program you want to open it - just select the program and press ok.

But for playing any video cd manually, if it is a VCD - open CDROM from my computer - Open "MPEGAV'" folder - and play any file with extension ".dat"

For playing Video DVD - Open CDROM from My Computer - Open "Video_TS" folder - Play any file which is having extension ".BUF".

    Factory settings for toshiba satellite laptop

    Back up all your data to external media before you begin the process.

    If you make a mistake during the process, your laptop may not be able to turn on or load the operating system, so copy valuable information to media where you can retrieve it, even if your laptop malfunctions.

    Turn on your system and wait for it to finish loading Windows and start-up programs. You can tell when the operating system has loaded, and start-up programs have been initiated, by the HDD (hard disk drive) light.

    It should have came with discs. Put one in and reboot the laptop

    Insert the system disk when the hard disk light stops blinking, signaling that the processor has finished accessing the hard disk, and that the system is idle.
    Shut down your laptop after you insert the disc.

    You do not have to wait for the computer to access data from the disc.

    Turn on the laptop again. Keep pressing the "C" key continuously as the system boots. This will enable the laptop to boot from the disk.

    Once the disk is accessed, the laptop will show

    the message "Loading Files;" begin the factory reset process by always selecting the default option that pops up.

    You can also use the "F12" key to boot from the disk.

    Highlight the CD/DVD option and press "Enter" to begin the restore process.

    Follow the on-screen instructions until the process finishes

    Restoring a Toshiba laptop back to factory settings may take 30 to 45 minutes.

    Unless you terminate a process by pressing "Cancel," your laptop will be rolled back to factory defaults, when the operating system installs completely.

    hope this helps

    Reinstallation of XP operating system to my Inspiron 1200

    you can use any Windows Xp CD to install the operting system on your laptop.
    however, you need to download few device driver like network, audio, video, chipset, etc..... from the manufactures' website and place them on a CD before you start. otherwise you will have network driver fro you get on the Internet.
    DO NOT DOWNLOAD BIOS UPDATE. unless you are 110% sure you need it.

    Good luck!
