Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P25-S609 Notebook ?

Hello from New Zealand, Have to organise price and info in the morning. Do you have any ideas how to reboot a Toshiba satellite P20 It says boot from original start disc, but we do not won?t to lose all the data. Tried to boot in safe mode also the last good configuration, but it keeps going round in circles. Have used compressed air to blow out the cooling fans, also taken battery out for 1 hrs then rebooted but no go! Is it possible to replace the hard drive with a new one, then fix the existi


Answers :

You can boot from original Windows disk but make sure you choose to repair installation. This will replace all the windows files but will not touch any of your personal data, programs or drivers installed. After youve done this repair install you should be able to start windows and get yourself an external hard drive and back up all data. Maybe then do a complete format and reload operating system to get your laptop running like brand new again. I dont know why your IT specialist has never tried this? Hope this all works fine for you ....... cheers from Scott
