Question about Toshiba Satellite Satellite 5200 Series 15 SXGA LCD Display-LQ150F1LH16-P000353350 CD-ROM Drive
My Toshiba Satellite 5200 will not recognize the original recovery CD and will not start when booted from the CD Drive. Can I just go and format the C-Drive and will it then reinstall properly? Or how can I change the DMI so it will accept the Disk?
I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.

Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.
Reinstall Windows from a Disk

recovery disk or the original Windows operating system DVD
into the Satellite's

few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your
keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to

this boot up session only.

CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this
