Firstly, when the laptop powers up, look for a message on the screen giving you options to press one or more function keys (F1 to F12) to access the bios or enter the system recovery mode. Use the button to access the BIOS SETUP and once in the bios setup, check that it recognises the hard disk (if one is present). If there is no hard disk then check that one is actually in the laptop by opening the hard drive cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Assuming the hardrive is present and is shown in the bios, reboot the laptop and access the RECOVERY mode if possible. There may be a recovery partition on the hard disk which will allow you to recover the operating system to factory default.
If there is no recovery partition then you will need to get hold of a Windows Vista installation disk. You may be able to borrow one from a friend if you do not want to buy one.
Look on the bottom for a Windows Vista label. This label should have a key on it which can be used to activate Windows Vista if required.
If the bios does not show your hard disk or the hard disk is not present in your laptop then you will need to buy a replacement hard disk.

I can't get into my laptop. I dont know the password. Is there a way to reset or change password?


You can only reset the window login password, if you have created the password reset disc when you created that password. If not, then the only solution is to do the recovery.

I would lick ti instal xp on my set toshiba tecra a2-s316 but i dont know how to boot my system by bootable cd


When booting you laptop notice the Toshiba scree. As that screen displays with the option F2 or F10. With your XP cd in the DVD/CD drive choose F10 and set your boot device to DVD/CD.
And follow the onscreen prompts.
Hope that helps.

Wifi isnt working the lights not on what do i do


See to it that your Wireless LAN is installed in your LAPTOP correctly, at this point if your LAPTOP have Wireless LAN and not installed properly cannot connect to the network & even your network icons does not appear, its useless.
Go to your Control Panel and and select icon SYSTEM then go to DEVICE MANAGER, you can see their your WIRELESS LAN device is working properly and if not install it using your Utility Disc of your LAPTOP, hope this might help you, good luck!

DVD not detect at bios. why


if you press enter or space when you have an item highlighted does it not give you the option to add the dvd / cd ?

On some bioses it is there its just that its been disabled as an extra boot device to speed things up so that its not always trying to read or find a cd to boot from so if you press the key it requests you to ( near the bottom of the screen when you are in the bootable devices section ) it will explain how to alter or add them. If you follow the instructions you should be able to add it as a bootable device

If its not detecting any discs in the drive whilst in the bios thats because you need to save the settings in the bios to boot from the cd / dvd and the disc ( cd or dvd ) has to be made bootable and then once the bootable disc is in the cd / dvd drive and you have saved the settings in the bios and restarted it should boot from the disc thats in there.

If you need to make a disc bootable you can either use nlite or you can get guides on how to make a disc bootable if you search google.

Your operating disc and a linux disc(s) are all bootable
