Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook ?

My hard drive crashed beyond recovery. I now need to "recover" using the DVD. How do I get the laptop to boot from the DVD drive?

Answers :

Most laptops are already set to boot from the cd naively. If it does not go into the bios by pressing ESC or INS at boot up (Some dells require you to press F12). In the BIOS look for "Boot order" and make sure that the cd is top of the list.
\015\012Hope this helps. And remember the restore will wipe everything! most recovery disks will put your laptop back to the state where you first bought it.
Turn the pc off - put the dvd in and power it on - right away, begin to tap the f12 button (sometimes f8 on some pcs) - it will give you a boot menu - select cd/dvd drive and you're good to go

hope this helps - good luck!
