  • Recovery disk will not load on my Equium A210 - 17l

    For some reason, no matter what I do or try, my Toshiba restore disk will not start or load into my disc drive. I hear that many whirring noise and loud clicks, but nothing. I cleaned the disk, I have my BIOS set to boot from the CD/DVD drive. I have the disc, otherwise he would stay all day on a black screen. This leads me into the wall, my laptop is just out of warranty and my games/applications are running slower and slower each day. I can't afford the repairs, I need help! Anyone has any advice for me? Thank you

    * edit *: I forgot to mention, some discs not loading in my laptop but they load fine on my desktop (including my Toshiba restore disk) is anyway I can copy the files to my restore disk and create a new one? (I confess that there are some scratches)

    It is not easy to say what the problem is here. It may be defective recovery DVD or optical disc drive may be defective.
    Try to use some other bootable CD/DVD like Microsoft installations CD or some Linux installations. If any of them work is ODD may be defective.

    Recovery image can be copied to the HARD drive and the new creation of media is not possible. If your recovery media cannot be used due to zero you can order the new copy under

    > all I get is a window box asking what would like to windows do you, like what you get when you insert a music disc or vid
    This means you want to use the recovery disc in Windows? It will not work.

    The point is that you must boot from the recovery disc rather Windows on the HARD drive so until the computer starts to go into the start menu and select the CD/DVD drive like device starting. Make sure that the recovery disk is in the drive and the recovery disk will start. Now follow the instructions on the screen.

  • Windows 7 recovery disk will not work!

    OK, so I have a laptop Compaq Presario CQ61 with windows 7 64-bit, and it crashed a few weeks ago. I was told to fix it I would need to order the recovery of best2serve discs so I did and they arrived yesterday. Although earlier, I tried to grab the laptop and disks do not work, I set the BIOS to make the player load first, and everything that happens is a small comand window flashes up a gray screen is displayed with a chart of tape on it without any option for me too choose, and he stays on this screen forever.

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you, Kris


    The reader at the link below must be compatible with your laptop and will offer a little more storage.  You might well be able to install a hard drive with a larger capacity, but this should be a choice course.

    I hope this helps.

  • Recovery disk will not start on Satellite 1110

    I try to use the recovery on a Satellite 1110 CD. I want to just install fresh Windows. The necessary files are supposed to be on the Toshiba recovery CD that accompanies it.

    So I did what the brochure says, and booted up the laptop to the top with the correct CD in the drive, while pressing 'C '. The notebook ignored the CD ROM and loaded Windows as usual. I repeated three times, each time that the CD ROM whirs a bit but will not start and Windows loads as usual. I have replaced 'C' for F12, chose the CD ROM drive in the list and repeat the process several times. Yet once it wouldn't boot from the CD-ROM.

    I looked at the content of the CD ROM A single MB 447. File of the GHS. The file icon is that generic type "Windows does not know what program this icon is intended to" deals.

    Google believes it is a ghost file and must the ghost installed to run it. This bitch never came with Ghost.

    Anyone here knows a remedy to this problem?

    (NB - I tried clean Windows system restore option, but it just brings back me to September this year. Theres no option that was more early in life for portable computers)

    I am in the United Kingdom, and is a UK machine if that makes a difference.

    Hello Micha

    I put really know what exactly is happening here, but please make sure that you start with recovery CD number 1/2 2/2. The installation of recovery, you can just start with the first recovery CD. Also try please set CD-ROM as firs boot device in the BIOS.

  • Recovery disks will not recognize my new hard drive

    Original title: why I can not reformat my upgrded from vista to w7 disk

    I can't reformat my vista upgraded to windows 7, as I tried to add another hard drive, which will not take my recovery disks. The message to reboot

    You try to add an additional hard drive or you try to replace the current hard drive with a new one?

    Recovery/restore disks are specific to OEM (made by the manufacturer that also makes your computer) unless you are lucky enough to actually have on the contrary an OEM copy of the operating system in question (Windows Vista I guess) and it is bootable and will guide you through a real installation of the operating system and not a "restore image."  What means what, is supported by the OEM in question for the method - no Microsoft.

    Now - you may be able to perform a new installation of Windows 7 using the Windows 7 upgrade media you have - depending on how you got it...?

    Frenchquarter, welcome to the forum.

    I suggest that you download and install OpenOffice.  It is FREE and is open to all documents created in MS Office.  If it doesn't, at least it costs you nothing to try.

    I used OpenOffice for years.  Believe me when I say that he will do everything that will make MS Office and in some cases, the better.  At least, you will have to use in the future and you'll be amazed to see how they can do it for FREE.

    Swap the optical disk drive and you will be able to use the recovery disc. You can get it on eBay and it is not so expensive.

    Depends on what you used for the backup.
