How do I get my laptop to start?

HOW do I get my laptop to work? I thought I got a good deal on a Toshiba Satellite A70 $100 (ratherr painting a 2400sq foot house). The screen was a bit cracked but other than that it was great. Wrong! My laptop didn't have any sound. Then My daughters friend upgraded Windows XP to Windows Vista. It was okay until the updates seemed to become a pain in the ....In no time I could only start up in safe mode. I then tried to install Windows Vista with Product key and a downloaded disk. Now when i try to start up it keeps flashing some message and keeps repeating it. if I try a different function it does the same.What do I do?

It sounds as though Windows Vista was either a pirated copy, or the installation of it has corrupted the original XP install in some way. It also sounds as though your computer either has missing drivers (sound problem) or serious hardware issues. What does the message that comes up when you start your computer say?

I have a toshiba satellite a55-s1063 laptop computer. How do I determine if my battery needs replacing or other problem? My computer can be plugged in charging for hours, but I only get max of 15 minutes...


Yes your battery needs replacing, I guess you have had the computer for a couple of years or so.
Check out a dealer on Ebay with a good feedback rating and try one of the cheaper batteries, if it lasts a year then its a good deal, with most batteries if you get two years you have done well.

Toshiba\corona\ Not Found.

That is an image file, it may have been moved or deleted, looks like from the file path it's a background image. If you want a quick solution you could just re-install the software.
