Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 notebook

\015 Hi,\015\012I've inhereted this old model from my previous job. I had to delete all the software since it was set up as a work station through the companies server. (Took ages before it had worked through all the installed protocols) \015\012I have discs from Dell and HP to install the operating system but I don't seem to get it to read the discs...? It just comes up with the message 'no operating system'\015\012\015\012Can any one help me to get it working again?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012Aad\015

Hi,\015\012\015\012Some proprietary recovery/installer CDs meant for a particular brand of laptop will not work on another. What you need perhaps is a Windows installer and use the serial number/key at the bottom sticker oy your laptop. You of course have to set in the CMOS/BIOS that the laptop boot from the CD first or F12 to select boot device. Further, the necessary driver files for a Toshiba laptop devices/components would not be available from a Dell or HP discs.\015\012\015\012If the CD drive will not read/boot the Windows installer CD, then the optical drive might have a problem. Your only alternative is to use/boot a USB attached device such as an external HD, CD or flash drive with the necessary boot files and installers. The first 2 would require the use of an external connector (IDE to USB adapter) while the last would have to be prepped using a 2nd PC.\015\012\015\012Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back what method you intend to use or should you need additional information.\015\012\015\012Good luck and kind regards.
Go into the BIOS settings and change the boot order. Make the CD/DVD-ROM drive first in the boot list. It's probably set so the hard drive is first. Then you should be able to boot off the install discs.
