On the left side of the laptop, there should be a small hole that like a pinhead. Insert something small enough to fit but sturdy enough to not break.This should reset oyur laptop. If this does not work,you have to call Toshiba's support line and send thelaptop to them. There is a nominal standard rate for the service of resetting the laptop. but it is not that expensive. When you get your laptop back it should work or Toshiba will tell you exactly what your problem is.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875; Recovery Error 10-fc12-045d HELP!!


no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

I need to know how to reboot this toshiba laptop and do not know how to


First, try windows diagnostic. Depress F8 button before the pc boots to windows and select Restore to best known...If nothing happens, try booting to Safe Mode. If it works ok in that mode then you need to reformat your drive. Make sure you use the Restore cd otherwise some or all the features like sound, VGA, etc will not work. When the Restore disk is through, it will prompt for the OS. Simply insert it into the drive's tray and follow the instruction on the screen. Good luck

"Remove disks or other. press any key to restart"


disconnect flash drives and external harddrives. If you still use floppies a similar message would come up if one was inserted as well. If you still have a problem let me know.

Inserting pc game and nothing happening, I have windows vista. I have tried putting in by run D;\set up still nothing


Have you considered that the disk may be faulty? This does happen from time to time, if other disks work in your drive and this disk is not picked up at all even if you check in 'My Computer' and nothing is displayed under your cdrom drive then the disk may be faulty.

Also if the game is written on a dvd disk and you are trying to play it using a cdrom drive and not a dvdrom drive then it will not work

Well the disk you connect is blank hence the black screen you get. You need to install the Operating System (Windows, Linux) etc. first and a Windows CD/DVD will serve as a system disk. Put the CD or DVD in and start the computer. You will see a message "Hit any key to boot from the CD", hit a key and you will get into Windows configuration.
If you dont have a Windows CD or the original CD that came with the laptop, there is nothing much you can do. You will need to purchase one and go from there (unless you decide to switch to Linux, then you can download it for free and burn on a CD - Take a look at Ubuntu, it is a very "Windows user friendly" Linux distribution...

ERROR INSTALLING PREINST3.SWM


The work around for this is to take the Toshiba restore disk and do a dvd copy disk to disk and use the copies to restore the computer. I had the same problem and the disk would not read correctly. I called Toshiba and they were no help. I saw a post on another web log and they suggested copying the origianl restore disks. They copies ran without a problem.
