My toshiba laptop wasnt loading up and i tried all the settings like safe mode and none of them worked. i don't have a restore disk so i used the one for my emachines computer. it was working fine until i tried to connect the internet to it, it won't recognise the internet cable and so i can't install it. also, the sims 2 won't work, it says directx 0.9 isn't installed. my digitaltv won't install on it either and it comes up with something about component XXXX. finally, when you turn off the computer and it comes up with the three buttons (stand by, shut down and restart), the stand by button isn't available. please help me.

When you use a generic install disk, instead using original recovery disk, you need to re-install all drivers.
Network wont work until you install LAN card driver, games and other software wont work correctly until you install proper video drivers, sound, internal modem, wireless, and bluetooth may also need drivers. All you have to do do is: selecting model from Toshiba website, download and install drivers.

Toshiba satellite is stuck safe mode it's running Windows XP.I tried restart f8 start normal a black screen with bunch stuf& starts in safe mode. What's wrong how can I get it out of safe mode?


First you should really consider upgrading from Windows XP because it is no longer supported and the chances of your computer becoming infected are extremely high.

Pressing the F8 command will only access Windows RE where you can access startup repair safe mode etc.

If the computer is only allowing you to go into safe mode that is a good sign that something is severely wrong with your OS.

While in safe mode you should try and access system restore, but this will only work if 1) you have turned on system restore and 2) your system has a restore point to access.

Have you added any new hardware or programs to the computer? If yes, then the new addition may be the cause of this issue. You can use device manager to rollback any changes or access programs and features to delete any program changes.

Other then that, if none of the above suggestions work I would strongly suggest booting from the disk media to access Windows RE too recovery the computer or just to re-image the computer.

Hope that helps.

Have you try a SAFE MODE during start up. This mode may bring your laptop back to normal but with basic abilities. If your laptop working good in safe mode, now your restore your laptop to the previous day while your laptop working good. To do this go help and support menu then type restore system , choose the date and enter. P.S if you cannot go safe mode, kindly check the toshiba worlwide service center to seek the nearest shop.

Toshiba satellite L300 black screen. Tried the 0 key and it only goes 1/3. thinking booing/registry corrupt. No recovery disk or software came with my laptop. O/S is Vista I have data and photos that...


Yes everything will be wiped out, once you do the recovery. It will reinstall the factory settings.
You may try this first; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, then try to boot from safemode. Tap F8 upon booting up to enter the advance boot option. Select safe mode, save your files once loaded in safe mode. You may first try the system restore from , go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, select the previous date the laptop was working fine. If this will not work then the last resolution is the recovery.

Hope this helps.

Computer not working. tried restore says error stopped it from working. facebook apps won't work. says to download flash version. tried said downloaded but still won't work. try to get on some web pages...


Sounds like your hard drive has unrecoverable errors. If you have another computer available, download SeaTools for DOS and copy it to a CD. Boot the problem computer from the CD and it'll run a check to see if you harddrive's smartcheck flag has been tripped. If it has, replace hard drive and restore the factory settings using restore disk(s). If you don't have the restore disk(s), you can order them from Toshiba for your model for about $20.
If hard drive checks out w/out errors, you may be suffering from a virus that has corrupted files. The easiest and fastest approach is to restore to factory settings using the restore disk(s). If you haven't backed up your important data, download AVG with another computer, put it on a CD, install it on the problem computer, if possible, then start the problem computer in Safe Mode, then run the AVG program. It will default to batch mode when run in Safe Mode. If you have viruses, it'll get hundreds off your computer during the batch run. You may have to turn off Windows' System Restore first, to ensure the viruses don't get reloaded.
Good luck!

Windows freezes up before boot is complete


If you have your computer Recovery disk, place the disk in the drive and restart the computer. It sounds like your OS is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.

My pc wont even load up. it just gets stuck on the first HP screen with press f9 or f10. it just freezes up, and i dont know what to do. ive tried pressing both of the keys but none work.


try to start it in safe mode, then you can run system restore back to see if this fixes it. when computer loads up and shows the first screen, then push f-8 before it fully loads, this will take you to the safe mode screen, choose safe mode, then when loaded run system restore back to where the problem was ok. if this does not work then I would restore windows from the backup cd. if using safe mode when rebooting, it will change back to normal.

1.One thing you can do is press and hold on F8 after power on then select Safe Mode. This way, you would be able to go the desktop. You can do a system restore instead of system recovery (like reformat and reload OS and original programs). To do system restore, you can go to start-all programs-accessories-system tools-system tools-system restore. Select a date when your laptop was working properly. This will restore the software changes beyond that date but will not affect your personal data like your pictures. Be sure not to interrupt the process so please plug in the ac adapter and wait for laptop to restart itself and give the message that the system restore was completed successfully.

2.If the system restore did not work, you can save your files to a disk when using Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking then you can do the system recovery using the recovery disk that came with your laptop or that you made (if you have the hidden partition which is present if you have the Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator program, note that this is different from Toshiba Disk Creator.)
Hope this helps. Thank you.

Laptop won't comeback on


Try safe mode.

On safe mode return the computer to an earlier date configuration.

At some point will ask if you want to do that. And say yes.

Make sure that if for some some reasons it asks you to restore the computer to factory settings, you should say no. I hope you can do this.
