You could wipe it clean as long as you have a windows installation disc to re install but you may have to back up any drivers and save to an external device incase the drivers are unavailable as a download. The problem with this unit is that there is only a 3.8GB hard disk drive and win XP will take atleast 2GB and still not leave much room for programmes to be installed. I would think you were at the maximum amount of memory as normally 160mb is the max, so unless you have a copy of windows 98SE which doesn't take up as much hard drive space, i would just uninstall any programmes from the laptop you don't use and try to gain space that way.

Toshiba not responding

--Clean the disk space..
--Stop auto starting programs.Click Start > Run and type "msconfig" at the prompt. Click the Startup tab and look at all that junk that loads when you launch your PC.
--Clean up the registry.
--Upgrade RAM.
--Reinstall Windows. If the above tricks haven't helped, it may be time to wipe the slate clean and start again, reformatting your hard drive, reinstalling your applications, and restoring your data files from a backup.
--Upgrade your hard drive. This is a more complicated solution, but if you're reinstalling Windows (per the prior tip) you might consider upgrading to a bigger and possibly faster hard drive, too.

Connecting to the internet

I'm sorry, but are you saying the cd won't run, or the cd is saying that you can't use aapt? Please clarify. Toshibas have a manual on/off switch for their wireless module also,which will of course need to be in the "on" position to work. Let me know please. Thanks

How to turn on

Make sure you plug in power adapter. Since its second hand, the battery might not be functioning and maintaining a charge. If this is not the problem, then you could check the RAM. See if it has 2 modules, so that you could try each individually. If only one, then you might need to borrow an exact type to try to see if that is the problem.
