Question about Toshiba Tecra A7-S712 Notebook

Open Question

I have a set of recovery disks for a Toshiba Tecra A7 S712 Model #PTA70U-00J007, but whenever I try to start running the process, I get a message that says "WRONG MACHINE." I can restore with a set of A10 disks that I have, but the XP OS comes back with a batch of missing drivers. Where can I download a good set of A7 recovery CDs or DVDs?

SOURCE: I need more speed

Well, thats no problem, and its easy doen...BUT i recomend you to start with upgrade the memory. In the spec of your laptop it says that there is 512mb memory, and that your laptop supports 4gb of memory. Im sure that you will need ever mb of that max memory if you want to run a cad program on your laptop, you need the memory more then you need the differns betwin 1,83 and 2,4 cpu that you want. Best is for sure t upgrade both to max, but if you have to choise one, take the memory!

Here is all you want to know about your laptop, including all avalible drivers (if you need any)

Good luck to you

SOURCE: Restore Original Configuration

If you have not yet found time to call Toshiba and get the recovery CD you may try the following:
1. Reboot you system
2. Press F1 (immediately you get options to press F2 and F12)
3. Press F8 (this will give you more options including system recovery)

Please ignore if you already have the CD. Having the CD is the best as previously said.

The step above have helped me many times to avoid doing factory system restore. I hope it helps you or someone else.

Best bet is to obtain new installation media. If the recovery cds were corrupted chances are system files are corrupted as well. NTLDR or NT Loader, contains information regarding location of system files, operating system etc. To correct it you'll most likely have to reinstall, either fresh, or run a repair operation using whatever OS install disc you're looking to run on your machine.

I need more speed

I would max out my memory before i would buy another processor. if your mem is maxed out at this time, try XP smoker. its a really good optimizer geared for windows. it will make your cpu 3 times as fast as the current processing rate you are experiencing now.

It sounds like you havent installed the graphic drivers for video card. When you installed xp did you formatt the hard drive and do a clean install?
Drivers for the graphics and chipset can be found on the makers website.
