Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Notebook ?

Restore Problem Hi I have an M15 and I don't know how to restore it. It is running very slowly and I tried to use the resore disks but it won't accept them. It won't even let me restore it to about a month ago. Starting it up while holding the 0 key didn't bring me to the screen it should have. Any suggestions?


Answers :

In case you have not remedied this problem ...
\015\012
\015\012Start off by running Checkdisk to make sure the Hard Drive is okay.
\015\012
\015\012\015\012Get a good Antivirus and run it [ AVG free is okay ]. [obviously you must have a good AV installed!]
\015\012\015\012Download and install Spybot S&D v1.6, and run it
\015\012\015\012Also find Malwarebytes AntiMalware ... install and run that.
\015\012You could also try CCleaner.
\015\012\015\012And finally get a good Registry cleaner - and run that.[ there are a\015\012few good Free ones you may find on CNET, or one of the other Reputable\015\012download sites ]
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012After you have run all of the above you WILL have a much happier computer, and should not have need to load a restore ...
\015\012BUT you Will NEED to create a New Restore Point before you start the\015\012clean up, AND once the computer has been cleaned up - also create\015\012a New Restore Point.
\015\012And finally when you have completed all that , run the Defrag - which\015\012may take a long time if not run recently. [ defrag should be run on a\015\012fairly regular basis ]
\015\012
\015\012Incase you need to get into the Windows boot options, holding the " o "\015\012key not the "0" zero, may get you in. Other wise the [F8] key must be\015\012pressed at startup - this will bring up the options menu also.
\015\012If you Requre to Boot from the CDRom at startup - as the Computer is\015\012first powered on start presssing the Right Arrow key until you see the\015\012Hilite move across the Icons - here you can select HDD , CDRom, Floppy\015\012and even WindowsBoot Menu.
\015\012Good luck.
