Logging on windows vista premium forgotten admin password toshiba


You need to reload your OS or find your password. There is no way to recover it without a good password. There is an option to remove the password all together, but you will still need to reload your OS. Look up Hirans Boot CD. Unless you are an IT person, you will need a professional to run it. This is spotty on Vista as its an old OS. Resetting Windows Password HBCD Fan Discussion Platform

Computer won't boot stuck in Error RecoveryScreen won't go any further


You should be able to do a clean install of Windows. Just insert the installation disc and press any key when indicated. Optical drive needs to be the first boot option. Go into BIOS and change it is not.
As for disc, you have to use the same Windows version as indicated on the MS Product Key sticker, because of the serial number.

Problems restoring my Toshiba L305 to factory settings


I'd doubt that the hard drive is bad. Most times the Factory Recover does not work especially from the discs.

Why not try reinstalling Windows, because you've probably wiped out your operating system by trying the recoveries. Look on the bottom of your laptop or inside the battery case for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will tell you what verion of Windows you have and it will have your registered Product Key Code (series of 5 letters and numbers). If you don't have an operating system disk, then borrow one from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. It has to be the same operating system that is on your COA sticker or it will not work and you won't be able to activate windows. If your COA says Windows Vista Home Premium, you can't use a Windows Vista Home Basic operating system disc.

Sometimes activation can be tricky so when you come to the part where it asks for the Product Key give it the key from the COA Sticker on the bottom of your laptop. Sometimes it will not want yours but want the key that came with the software you borrowed so if it is not on the packaging ask the person your borrowed from to give you the Product Key from their COA Sticker. Don't worry, theirs is theirs and yours is yours.

Tosheiba laptop vista recovery disk won't load. I put image files on c drive try to start try to ruin tosimagex new errors


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
What you have to do is to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically. Check your recovery if its running on other pc. If not. call your manufacturer and get a new recovery disc.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

Laptop wont boot...it wont load past the very first boot screen where it asks you to hit f12 for boot menu and f2 for system utilities it have the windows vista OS...is there a problem with the hard drive?...


Windows is corrupt...reload Win OS....if possible re-install Windows in a different partition say D: or E: etc (if u have more than 1 partition) and then once done let it boot from that and let Win load....take a full backup of all of your critical data to a USB pen drive....then reload Win CD in the Cd drive, switch off and switch on PC let it boot from CD and delete all partition on HD, format the disk fully and repartition the disk and load Win in C:
pls leave a feedback

Satellite L305-S5907 locks up.


If your computer boots then lockup, try this:
When your computer boots, press F8 to enter boot selection. Then select Safe Mode. Try to uninstall your newly installed software or hardware that might be causing the problem. Then reboot. If it persists, try using "Last Known Good Configuration"


Another option is to reinstall your OS. Last bad option though. Good luck

Slammed ZToshiba A135-2276 will not boot


I'm not sure why you slammed the system shut, bu if it was to do with a system performance issue, the most likely answer is that the hard disk drive is or has failed.

If running Windows XP, boot to recovery console, see if you can run chkdsk on the drive. If Vista, boot to the DVD and run repair my computer.

Most likely, if those options do not get the system to boot, a hard drive replacement may be in the cards.
