Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro 490CDT Notebook

Open Question

To Whom It May Concerned Dear Sir/Mdm I've a Toshiba Saterllite Pro 490 cdt/4.0 system unit - model no. PA1269E LXCD - Serial no. 68013859. Now it's malfunctioned. Used to have the hard disk partitioned with Windows 2000 on it. I reinstalled with Windows XP Pro but realised it had insufficient disk space on my hdd of 4GB after Windows Updated, so I decided to delete it with KillDiskSuiteFree's Active @ KillDisk for Windows. But then "Error Loading Operating System" appeared after system rebooted. Since then I'm unable to access anything on the system; not even from the CDD nor the USB. Can you upload the Toshiba Companion Diskette in CD form cause my diskettes already misplaced, and floppy drive not working since then. Or maybe a wiser advise would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advanced

Your hard drive crashed. They're fairly easy to replace. Ebay has great deals on 40 and 60 gb hard drives.

Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?

What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??

You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.

Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.

If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.

If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.

That means that the disk has a bad sector.

Try chosing the option to format the hard drive during the system installation.

If that does not work, then replace the hard drive.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Sir/Ma'am if you have misplaced your Key, in case you have bought the Software then you can provide the Vendor's a proof of purchase and they will give you your Key in return.

But IF you are searching for a free key/serial/crack this isn't the right place, as FixYa strongly prohibit such type of activities and keep a record of its customers and experts along with their IP's to avoid any miss use.

I hope you understand.

Only get 3/4 display screen on monitor

Your post is not very clear on the exact problem you are having. If your issue is that some web pages have large amounts of blank white space to the right or both left and right of the web page, then the issue is you have a high resolution LCD and the web page was written using page frames. (If this is the case, the web page is being displayed as designed and there is no fault to the system)

If that is not the issue, then post specific details as to what you are seeing and what you are doing when the issue occurs.
