Problem running the restore disk for Toshiba A85-S107

\015 When I try to run the restore disk for my Toshiba A85-S107 laptop it just keeps looping around. It tries to run Windows 98 and we accept and it starts the warning screen again.\015

Answers :

I have the same model and i just reformatted the hard drive with the original restore disk and it does loop around several times. That is the way it is suppose to do on this particular restore disk. So don't be afraid if it goes around several times because it is doing different tasks each time it loops.
There are 2 different restore types:
1.) Toshiba's restore....the one you are attempting will restore hardware device drivers.
2.) Windows restore...this is a feature built into WIN ME,2000,XP and up to bring your system registry back to a "good" setting. Maybe this is the restore that the warning is notifying you about? If yes, then do not insert Toshiba CD next time, but accept and follow steps to restore. If no success, then force a restore...I'll explain if you need.

Have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop A135 which has a cd/dvd rom drive burner that does not seem to be reconized by my system.
