Your BIOS is probably not set to boot from a CD-ROM. Luckily I have the same laptop so if you press and hold the "c" key when it boots up and keep holding it until it beeps at you it will then boot from a cd. You could also press esc and go into the BIOS if you're adventurous.

My system hp pavilion g4. It doesnt get startng. Its shows nly startup menu. Does not opening. What to do now..? I cant even select the system recovery option. No use..


I would recommend getting an external drive case for your laptop drive, and use it to backup your important data to another computer.

It should be easy to remove your hard drive from your laptop.
You need to remove two or one screws from the bottom of the machine. The separate rectangular area located in a corner of the laptop, indicates the position of the drive.

Then, move your disk back to the laptop and boot from cdrom to reformat. It is better, if you have an original win 7 dvd use the windows original cdkey that you find on a sticker in the back of the laptop.
Sometimes you need to remove the battery from the laptop to find the sticker.

How to unlock toshiba satellite laptop BIOS and HDD


If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios for a fee and it is not cheap, they may include the HDD reset, if not! www.ebay.com type password, or hard drive password. I would check bios password, probably a lot cheaper if you can find the right seller, also check www.download.com some software may be free.

Reformatted hard drive. Loaded Windows XP Pro. Now the laptop will not access the internet


Was the laptop originally with Windows Vista? If it was, then there may not be a driver for windows xp.

If it was preloaded with XP and it's lot loading the right ethernet adapter from the recovery software or it's not working with the right software, then it's a hardware issue.

Try to access the manufacturer's website from another system to see if there is a driver for the particular system. If there isn't, go to driverguide.com and see if you can get one there.

No windows xp


You will have to reformat it again. its likely a bad sector has been created on the hard disk, and windows file is probably occupying the bad sector. Try to reformat your hard drive. If that doesn't work, try to reformat it with windows 98 bootable disk. If it doesn't work, get another hard drive and test to see if it will work. If that works, then know you may have lost the MBR (Master boot Record) of your hard drive.

Toshiba startup


This is one of two things, 1- an operating system error or glitch, a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc will fix it, or 2- a hard drive failure. If the system repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive is bad and will need replaced.

Keyboard problem with Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT (running Win98 SE)


I found a BIOS upgrade download for the Toshiba Satellite Pro 480 on Toshiba's website under the archived old models listing. I downloaded it on a different machine and saved it to a USB which I then used to copy to the problem laptop and ran it there.

Satellite pro 4600 windows 98 fatal error


What OS are you running on the system? Did you recently install any hardware? If there is a recent hardware install, remove it and try powering on the system on.

If this fails, then you'll need the restore CDs/DVDs from the manufacturer. This will bring the laptop to it's factory default installation. Before doing so, I recommend purchasing a hard-drive enclosure for a laptop hard-drive and backup all important data.


Hope this helps :)

Problem running the restore disk for Toshiba A85-S107


I have the same model and i just reformatted the hard drive with the original restore disk and it does loop around several times. That is the way it is suppose to do on this particular restore disk. So don't be afraid if it goes around several times because it is doing different tasks each time it loops.
