Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook ?

I have a A15-S127 Toshiba laptop. It was not working. I bought a Windows XP pro OS to install. It did not want to install. I wiped the drive and tried F2 F8 Del. and it will sometimes start to load the program> it reaches a point and stops at an Error. If I keep at it it will get past that one and will continue on until it stops at another. I have gotten as far as it actaully starting to load windows up to 65% then it stopped again. Why would a new program have so many errors? So I am guessing I


Answers :

You need to get into 'setup' (watch the screen as it starts) and delete the hard drive, then reinstall it. Be sure to save and exit. When windows starts to install, it will see an un-formatted drive and offer to format it. Select 'NT' file type and let it proceed. Windows will install as on a fresh drive.
Hi. Try to download any linux, i.e. Mandriva. Install it on USB stick (4GB), its very easy. Then you can start you computer from it. You can use one of the software included in linux to check hard drive or just simple fill the hard drive to full with some data (movies, music, photos...) and look for any errors or speed decreases. The normal format, not the quick one, can be helpfull as well.

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working.

It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt.
