Question about Toshiba Portege 3500 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Loading OS I just received a Portege 3500, and need to wipe the HD and install a new copy of the OS. I plugged my external USB DVD-RW but can't get it to boot from the drive. How can I get to the BIOS or get it to recognize that the drive is attached. Thanks, John

It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot.
Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS
Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables
If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.

Need help in formatting or recovery the os.... can anyone help me on it


If you have the original OS disks, you can boot to the CD drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP. One of the steps will ask you if you want to keep the existing Operating system. If you decline and install the OS the next step will ask if you want to format using NTFS. This step will format the drive and then reinstall the OS.

I hope this is what you were looking for. Thanks for using FixYa.

Quiero formatear mi laptop una toshiba portege 3505 pero no me detecta los usb


First , try letting "Windows Update" install new driver. Be sure to plug in any USB devices you want to use BEFORE you start Windows Update. That way ,Windows Update will detect these USB devices as well as your USB hub. Because it may be that your external USB device is the problem.

Install new os on motion le 1600


You can use an external USB drive, either CD or DVD dependent on your OS media.

I used a Phillips drive, with external power supply, to restore to factory settings using their restore CDs. I also installed Windows Vista Ultimate from DVD, without issues :)

Toshiba usually set the keys Fn+F9 as the touchpad enable/disable - the touchpad software has to be running in the taskbar to allow this however.

Bootable cd / dvd


one possible way around is to copy the entire cd (make a new folder named "CD COPY" or similar) to your hard drive (assuming you have enough space...about 800 Mb), then run the install from setup.exe from the hard drive, then delete the copy (to make room) when you are done.
