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.

Thats because your lap top needs to be reebooted in a format to reconfigur itself unfortunatly its not doing that please! do an early system restore to when it was working and save those settings for the next time this happens ok! and save all your current files just in case you need to wipe your whole drive to origibal settings ok!

Installing XP over vista


if your asking to install XP on top of vista.. if you do not like vista, then ur listening to your friends who have no idea what their talking about because its awesome and when windows 7 comes out youll be stunned...this is verry easy if you have XP disc ready, restart your computer you need to wipe ur hard drive to get rid of the old operating system, first save any thing you want thus wiping hard drive saves nothing.... techniquly its still there but ya....put in disc of XP and run the disc to install XP,. ACTIVATE IT AND WALA

My toshiba wont start it keep's restarting at the black loading screen.


have you done a maintainance on it to get rid of all the excess information?? if not..go to start--then all programs, then accessories, then tools, click on disk cleanup. click on yes to all when the pop up box show up.

after this do a defragmentation-- go to start, all programs, then accessories, then tools, then disk defragmenter. click on analisys-- this will tell you if you need to defrag your system. if yes-- do it..it will take time to defrag, but it will speed up you game play ability.

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.
