How to fix a system error?
A system error indicates a possible software or firmware problem. If the unit is in warranty, contact Toshiba about a software upgrade (possible).
If it is out of warranty, the cost of repair is likely more than a new unit.
A system error can be caused by moisture (#1), physical damage (#2) and a possible software update issue. Your Toshiba Gigabeat Room software for your computer may be able to get upgrades for your MEG-F10K. Check the owner's manual. If you cannot connect to the unit with the computer to transfer songs and movies, it is likely not repairable for a reasonable cost.

If you reformated the mp3 player's hard drive, the problem probably is that it can't find it's firmware which is supposed to be located on it's hard drive. To fix this, simply copy the GBSYSTEM folder located (usually) in C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\gigabeat room 2.0.2 to your mp3 player's root.

hope u find ure problem
Hi melissa, for sure you can bring it somewhere to get it fixed, so that includes paying for it, and a nice price... !
**I recommend to do this only if you'Re sure of yourself**
You can check it you're self. The only thing you can repair, is if the lcd screen is unplug inside of the mp3 player. To do that you need to open it, here are the instructions, but stop halfway threw the instructions, because they are to demantle the whole gigabeat, you just wanna open the casing and see if the screen is well plugued : http://www.angelfire.com/bug2/gigabeat/
**more safe, but cost**
Go to this website (toshiba repair website), choose in the first list : compact/hifi stereo, and in the second list your state. Then click search and it will give any certified toshiba repair center. http://webmail.tacp.com/service/servcntr.nsf/$$Search?OpenForm
I have a Toshiba Laptop
Most laptops do have Microphones built in. I do not know for definate that your laptop does, but you can easily test it to find out.
1. Go to the volume control (double click the speaker icon near the clock on the taskbar), go to recording properties and select microphone as the recording source and set the slider to about 80%.
2. Bring up microsoft sound recorder (its in the start menu somewhere) and click record... when you speak you should see a voice print appear in the sound recorder window.
If you do not see a voiceprint, then you probably dont have a built in microphone, but if you do see a voiceprint as you speak then you do have a microphone built in and you can record into your powerpoint shows to your hearts content.
Hope this helps!
