Satellite P100 - recovery disk does not work
After getting some annoying adware that I couldn't get rid of, I decided to format my hard drive and my notebook back to factory... something that I couldn't do.
First of all, I inserted the disc, and in no way I couldn't take. I tried to run on the start menu, I browsed the records and sought some sort of file that would open up the normal Wizard... etc... nothing... I rebooted to see if it would start... nothing...
I went into the setup (f2) and asked him to initialize the disk. He then says "Loading ram disk image" with a progress bar... the bar ends, the screen empties and that restarts, get to the same point and restarts continuously.
I found this thread with a guy with exactly the same problem here:
He described his solution, but I have no idea what he's talking about.
I got this 'product Recovery DVD-ROM' and no other discs. I can't get into windows, I can only get f2 and the parameters it and watch it to restart... I can't do anything with it at all.
Stunned by using the made recovery disc my laptop unusable as before when it was just annoying ad sites in...
Any help would be appreciated.
I checked the link in your ad, and the other person started the laptop with the Linux Boot CD to format and delete partitions on HARD drive integers.
I recommend to do the same thing. Delete the partitions and format the drive HARD and then try to recover the laptop with the Toshiba Recovery CD supplied.
I try to use the recovery for Satellite 5200 disk but it won't work. I have the recovery disk in the DVD player and I tried holding C and also tried to change the boot sequence by pressing F12 at startup to the top but he's not in it.
Someone at - it ideas?
Is there a problem with the drive while the OS is running? Try to use different bootable CD and see exactly what is happening.
My laptop's daughter was so slow, that we decided to take it back to factory settings. There is no disk recovery with the laptop because it has the repair work however when we did the computer is no longer started upward and when we started it in safe mode, the repair option was gone!
I've then went to Toshiba.eu and bought the recovery disc, seem to work, load files etc and then says loading windows, but the screen just goes black.
I can't find a phone number or contact point on the invoice and if I will have to consider in a shop to repair I don t want to have paid for both disks that do not work!
I do something wrong or can any one help?
New laptops are available with preinstalled operating system and without recovery disk but in user s manual is clearly described that you can create this preinstalled software recovery disk Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator.
I m wondering really you didn't mark this option.
In any case, try to reuse this disc to see if the problem occurs again and again. If you will not be able to install the original recovery image I recommend you contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
XP Recovery disk does not work. The 3 options are unresponsive. Is there an easy solution. All other functions of cell phones seem ok. It is a reliable machine for more than 3 years, but now must use the recovery disc. Brilliant ideas greatly appreciated.
Well, I put t know why you recovery CD doesn t work. Have you checked the CD some scratches? Have you tried to clean this CD?
However if it of impossible to use the recovery CD, you can contact the ASP and buy a new one. It doesn t expensive.
In addition, you can install an original Windows operating system and then all the Toshiba necessary drivers on the Toshiba site.
I'm trying to do a clean install on my laptop, but the recovery disk is not working.
The files transferred to the laptop, but once done, I get an error message that says: "the system is not fully installed. Please run Setup again."
Does anyone have suggestions as to how to fix it?
It took me four days to get to this point and make me very frustrated.
What is the installation using another CD; That is to say the Microsoft Windows XP disk?
Have you tried that?
In my opinion, this would help to pinpoint the problem
The error message can be linked to different issues; I mean the HARD drive or a single partition problem could also be possible.
Try to format the drive HARD whole again. Delete all partitions from the HARD drive and check if you can proceed with the installation.
But if you will not be able to install the OS by using the recovery disk and other disks then a question must relate to a part of the material. (possibly HDD)
I have an old Satellite A30-203 and have a problem. I tried to format my laptop but the product recovery cd does not seem to work in deletion the data on my disk, its becomes blocked during loading files of ntfs? Now I am not able to retrieve a windows session would I need a new product recovery cd and would be able to get it?
It is difficult to say what is the reason of this but made is either it s a laptop problem itself or the recovery disc (e.g. scratches) causes this problem.
In my opinion the best way to check this using a Microsoft Windows disk. If the installation completed successfully, you need a new recovery disk. As a result, you can ask a service provider authorized in your country! :)
I have a toshiba Satellite C650, who has recently developed with a disc read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some possible solutions I've read on the internet.
I made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which has also installed Windows 7 64-bit. When I use the recovery disk and it loaded the files etc it evokes just a black screen and the cursor.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?
I tried to start my computer acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine.
As is - this does anyone have suggestions as to why I get the message "disk read error - press ctrl, alt and delete to restart?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
On this virtual path, it is not easy to offer the exact diagnosis, but of course, there must be a problem with the HARD drive. Can you get a second one for test purposes and exchange it. Just to be sure if the HDD is troublemaker.
But there is something else:
> I made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other computer acer laptop...
Sorry, but I don t understand this. Can you please explain what you did exactly?
I have a L350-170 running Windows Vista home, I recently buy a Toshiba restore CD and now that it's happened, it does not work.
I put in the CD and boot from the CD drive, I can hear work and the display shows "Windows loading files" and a bar appears at the bottom of the screen, after that, the screen turns white and all I'm left with is a pointer of the mouse and a black screen.
Have you tested if the laptop would start using another bootable Linux Live CD, WinPE or Win XP disc?
Please check that would help determine if the problem is related to the computer laptop or recovery disk.
Please also check if the HARD drive is ok. For this test, you can use a test called Drive Fitness Test free HARD drive tool. Google for it.
However, it could also be a defective recovery disc and in this case, you should get in touch with the guys where you ordered this drive may be you need a replacement.
I want to restore my Toshiba Satellite A100 laptop to its original factory condition, but the DVD that comes with the package of recovery does not work...
I have load to start computer press F12, and it starts on the DVD. It says "Loading RAMDISK Image", after which I am told by Toshiba customer service there should be options to clean up the hard drive or restore Windows XP.
However, after VIRTUAL disk, I see a cursor on a black screen, and then the laptop off and restarts. After the connection, NO CHANGES made...
What is the problem with that? How can I really use this recovery DVD?
Someone help me please.
The recovery procedure is not difficult.
Just try to boot from the recovery CD or DVD and follow the Guide on the screen line.
Your problem is very strange. You have created all the partitions on the HARD drive?
I put really t know why your recovery CD doesn't work properly, but I think you should try to completely format the disk (also partitions), then try to boot from the recovery CD.
Don't forget that the laptop is in the boot mode. (don t mix the standby or hibernation mode)

How did you test the remote control?
What do you mean who does not? Some functions does not work or a complete remote control cannot be used?
I read the user manual and it seems that the remote will work under Windows mode with WinDVD or Express Media player, and Windows Media Player when the laptop was not started in the Windows operating system.

I found the answer on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Contact the computer manfacturer, who provided the original discs.
I replaced my hard drive on my laptop HP - computer pavilion dv7 notebook. My recovery disks do not seem to work now, I get to 62% completion and then the error message "Recovery Manager is unable to restore your computer by using the original image. Please contact HP support. "Error code: 0xe0ef000e" do I need to buy a new HP recovery discs? Thanks, Nick
Unfortunately, I don't have any experience in troubleshooting these special software installations.
We should expect to download and install.
If they are not, I have no tricks up my sleeve for you to try.
I recommend starting a new thread describing your questions with this software and hope that someone else in the support forum can help you with these items.
See you soon,.
My problem is that when I used the restore disk provided with the laptop it froze the computer when he was to "expand our files (0%). »
I thought that drive was defective, so bought a new drive of Toshiba (£30) but get the same error.
Machine is now starts rained because the recovery disks erased the hard drive before freezing.
To be honest, this is the first time I see this error
I doubt that the recovery disk is defective or the drive HARD because as you say it was possible to install Win XP on this laptop
I would recommend formatting the HARD drive again to erase all partitions and format the HARD drive using the Win XP disc. Then take the recovery disk and try to reinstall the new Vista operating system
Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this error message I get when trying to restore my laptop...

Any help appreciated,
Thanks in advance,

Hmm... for me, it seems that the laptop does not start from the disc (DVD), but it attempts to boot from the HARD drive...
In any case, have you tried to boot from another disk; for example, Win XP, Linux Live CD?
To do this, and check if it is possible... If Yes, format the HARD drive and try to boot from the recovery again disc!
PS: Have you tried a HARD drive recovery option?
Turn on the unit, press F8 and choose fix my computer
After that, select Toshiba HDD recovery option if possible.
