Question about Toshiba (K000680310) for Satellite 1605CDS, 1625CDT, 1675CDS, 1695CDT

1 Answer

I'm having problems upgrading from Windows ME to Windows XP Professional..

I have a Toshiba Satellite 6125CDT that I just bought on Ebay. It is a pentium III, core2, 192MB RAM, New 40GB HDD, COA WIN98/NT and has WIN ME installed. I have a Windows XP Professional (authentic) CD that I have tried to upgrade with several times. It gets to the step of preparing the installation and part way through it gives me a message that a file "can't be read by the optical device being used." That would be the CD ROM. It does this on three files which are critical for installation so when it restarts my computer to intall the files, it won't load. I have to turn off the computer and reboot into Windows ME. Can you tell me why this happens and what I can do? I'm very frustrated. I had considered uninstalling ME but that worries me because I don't have any other OS software other than XP. Help!

    There are no scratches. It seems to be the same three files every time. I have tried cleaning the CD and still have the problem. I've researched the requirements to upgrade and I shouldn't be having a problem as far as I can tell..Thanks for the suggestion though ;-)

Clean the CD and see if that works. Are there any scratches on it?

    You could contact Microsoft for a new CD if there still supporting it or you could get hold of someone who has a CD repair machine and see if redoing the surface of the CD helps.



    I've had it happen before and Microsoft is good about replacing them.

I installed windows xp on my toshiba tecra m4. How stylus pen works?


Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 is Tablet PC. Windows XP (Profession) has no option of touch screen.
In order to use the feature, you need to install Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or you may install Windows 7, which supports this feature and you would definately be able to use stylus and touch screen, as I have installed Windows 7 and its working fine with all the drivers etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!
