I need to wipe the hard drive of my Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 and reinstall Windows XP without the Windows install discs. I have tried holding down the "zero" button, per instructions on the net, bu


you might want to try restarting the computer and as soon as you see the Toshiba logo on the screen start pressing F1. if that doesn't work try again and this time press F8. look for an option that says something like restore this computer. im not sure this model has a recovery partition. if it doesn't you'll probably need to get your hands on a Windows XP disk. you could ask a friend with a dell computer they may have their disk. or you could try a flea market. but before you erase your computer you need to make sure you have your coa sticker on the compter still. it looks like the sample im providing. if you have any questions feel free to ask.

DiVX is saying im not connected to the internet to install program


I've not needed to be connected to install it. oid you get it from a trusted source. Sounds like it is trying to install bloatware like junkware from Conduit.

Error code 80072745


From the Microsoft web site at: http://messenger-support.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!8B3F39C76A8B853F!13931.entry?sa=240159924
December 11 Error: 80072745 If you are encountering the error code 80072745 when you sign into Messenger try the following: 1. If you are connected to the Internet through a router, remove the connection to the router. Then, directly attach the network or modem cable to the computer. This will help determine whether the issue is related to a firewall setting on the router. Try to sign in to Messenger after you connect to the Internet. If you can connect to Messenger after bypassing your router, the issue may be related to router settings. Try resetting your router (Note: This may revert your settings back to factory default settings and may delete all your custom settings.). Please contact your router manufacturer's Help documentation or customer support channels to determine how to reset your router or enable port 1863 through the router firewall. 2. If you are signing in from a corporate environment, contact the network administrator to determine whether port 1863 is being blocked inside the network.
3. If you have Zone Alarm with IM Security installed on the computer, turn off IM Security for Messenger: 3.a. Right-click the Zone Alarm icon in the notification area, and then open the Control Center.
3.b. Click IM Security or click Security to open the IM Security settings window.
3.c. Click the Main tab or the Status tab.
3.d. Slide the Protection Level slider to Off to turn off IM Security.
Note: This procedure will change the IM Security settings for any instant messaging programs that are installed on the computer.
3.e. Sign in to Messenger again to determine whether the issue is resolved.

4. If you are connecting to the Internet using a Wireless Data card through a mobile phone network, please contact your mobile internet provider to verify if you need to additional data plans that enable you to connect to the Messenger service.

Computer very slow and sluggish. Microsoft office documents open very slowly. General performance slow.


Delete all temp & internet temp files and just check if any AV is scanning in the background. AVG / Kapersky / Mcafee do these background scans silently sometimes. Maybe that is slowing down the pc. Disconnect from lan and internet and try wkg on the pc

VERY SLOW..AND some internet not working!


One of the first things to do is download a program called "Malware Bytes" (Google it). Install and run the scanner/cleaner to wipe any nasties off of the machine. You may find that after running this program many of the woes you've described magically go away (especially the slow operation)...

Cant use web cam on aol


I am having issues using the Video Instant Messenger component of AOL AIM trnsp.gif Answer taken from http://aimtoday.aol.com/features/main_redesign.adp?fid=video_im

Why Am I Having Problems Getting Video IM to Work on My Computer?
You may need an upgraded Windows XP component to operate in conjunction with Video IM.
To use Video IM users may need an updated component of the Windows XP Operating System. Here’s how to upgrade for use with Video IM:
1.First, completely sign out of AIM and any other programs running on your computer.
2. Click here to download the file for use together with Video IM.
3. When the download is complete, click Open or Run the program from its current location.
4. Follow the instructions on screen to install.
5. When installation is complete the program will be loaded but invisible and running in the background.
6. Restart your computer and launch AIM to enjoy Video IM.

You’re behind a firewall built into most home networks or broadband routers …
Although you may not realize it, firewall software may be used by your Internet Service Provider, your company, your Windows XP operating system or even in the hardware in your home that connects you to the Internet. If you have a home network or broadband router, there is likely a firewall built into it.
If either you, or the person you want to Video IM with are behind a firewall and are having problems getting Video IM to operate, work with your Internet Service Provider, your company’s system administrator or modify your firewall software yourself to open ports 1024 through 5000.
Once these ports are opened, Video IM should work if no other issues exist.

It could be your router …
Routers are devices used by your Internet Service Provider, or installed in your home network, to distribute Internet connections. A wide variety of routers will work with Video IM. Below is a list of popular routers that work with Video IM in their default configuration.
ActionTec Geu404000-01
D-Link DI-704P
Linksys WRT54G
Linksys BEFSR41
Linksys BEFSX41
NetGear RP614
NetGear WGR614
Most other routers will also work, however, if yours does not, please report it here.
Also, be sure to follow the instructions above to install components to work with Video IM.
Remember, both you and the person you want to Video IM with may need to ensure your routers are not blocking Video IM.
