    Thanks for the link. Could you please tell me what exactly am I looking for? I am totally lost and at a dead end trying to find how to order a recovery disk. Thanks.

    Mark

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    Yes, it will boot. After running recovery disk 1 & 2 it says please wait for windows to start for the first time. Then, while going through the first configuration step, the screen goes blank and stays that way. It appears not able to read a file on the disk due to a scratch unrepairable. SWR file is missing 635mb.

    Thanks Robert. Yes, it's late here too in Nebraska...2:35AM. Yes, I need all the help I can get because it's for my daughter. She needs the laptop for school. So I really really appreciate your help. I'll be sleeping now, and hope to hear back from you in the morning. Thanks a million.

    Thank you. After sending my request I was directed back to the same page where this all began and reached a dead-end. Do you know if there is a way to bypass toshiba completely and install an operating system for this laptop? Thinking of you.....

    Mark

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    Yes, I have a new cd-rom installed. I am currently using my Acer Aspire 8920G to communicate with you. So please tell me, what would be the next step to install a new operating system in my Toshiba P205-S6237?

    Mark

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    No, I don't think it has one of those. So is the laptop total junk now?

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    None except for the damaged recovery disk. I would like to install anything I can get my hands on.

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    OK, great idea. I remember making copies on 5 disks but not sure how to use them. Is there a way to "look" at each disk to see what is on them without messing up this new computer I am using now?

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    Disk 1: autorun setup information 412 bytes.

    Winssrec windows live one care recovery

    WinssRecRo.dll 1.6.2111.30

    backup 2007 file folder

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    I looked at a total of 10 disks I was able to find and none show an operating system.

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    I looked at the recovery disk 2. If I could send it to you (I don't know how) maybe you could look at it to see what is wrong.

  • Mark Robinson Aug 30, 2008

    Not badly scratch at all. I tried the cd repair kit with no luck. My email is: markanizer@gmail.com

    this is actually for hard drive issues but the recovery/restore disks do go on the hard drive so close enough.

    just occured to me. if you can get a copy of the operating system you are using you may be able to repair the copy that is on the machine. let me know if you can get one and i'll talk/type you thru that.

    If you have a computer that is working.. pop the first cd (hopefully they are numbered) into the cd rom... when the auto play folder opens select open folder i believe it is. just need to see what files are on the cd. the other way is to insert the cd.. go to start... my computer .... in there you will see a list of devices on your computer.... d is usally the cd rom drive.



    Robert



    let me know what files you see on the disk.... doesn't have to be extremely detailed....

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith Aug 30, 2008

    ok perhaps i misunderstood... these are 5 disks of files you made ?



    Robert



    if that is the case ... check them all and see if any say system recovery or appear to be set up disks for an operating system.

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith Aug 30, 2008

    How badly scratched is that cd and post your email address in the form of name at hotmail. com or whichever your address is but replace @ with at.... saves you getting a lot of spam emails

A friend gave me a toshiba satelits A55-S1063...I can not get it to open..Where can I get the recovery disk for it????


Toshiba is a popular name in the world of technology, and the printers, servers, desktops and notebooks the company makes are widely used in both homes and offices. While most of the time these Toshiba laptops will run without problems, there are times when laptop owners will need to take their computers back to factory new condition. In order to restore your notebook you will first need to get a copy of the recovery disk.
Turn the laptop over and locate the serial number label. The serial number label should be located on the bottom of the case. Open up the laptop and look for the model number. The model number should be located along the top of the keyboard. If the model number is not listed there, look for a model number label on the bottom of the case. Call Toshiba tech support at (800) 457-7777 to order the recovery CD. When calling, you will need to supply the representative with the serial number of your unit. You will also need a credit or debit card to cover the cost of shipping. http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/Drivers-and-Utilities/Restore-disk/m-p/49692 Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a Toshiba laptop A200 - EZ2204X with a model number of PSAF4U now my problem exactly that i have got the recovery discs on a DVDs and after that I have lost them .... and now the windows...


Hello,

For recovery disks set, they are available only for purchase. You can buy the recovery disks for your laptop on http://recovery-disks.com/toshiba/toshiba-satellite-pro-a200-ez2204x.html.

What I can suggest if you don't want to pay for these disks is to format and install Windows and then you can install free software like Driver detective to know what drivers you will need. Once you have the list of drivers, you can download them from websites like driverguide.com.

Note that formatting your laptop will result in losing everything you have on it.

Hope this helps.

Recovery disk


Thank you so much for your reply. I wish I knew more about computers, and I hope you understand why I need your help. I am a 24 hour caregiver and am not paid for my work, so any help I can get is appreciated very much. I think all I need is to find out how to contact Toshiba. Their 800 number and website is not user friendly if you know what I mean. I only need a new recovery disk and am willing to drive thousands of miles if that's what it takes to find one. So if you or anyone could please point me in the right direction I would be on my way to the first step in solving this problem with my laptop. It's not for me it's for my daughter Shelly. She has Williams Syndrome and is desperate for her laptop to be fixed with any kind of operating system.
Thanks,
Mark
