toshiba nb100 12A System Unit recovery?

February 23, 2011 at 06:33:59
Specs: Windows XP
My Toshiba NB 100 has crashed following a virus. I have tried "Load Setup Defaults" from the F2 menu with no results. I have read the Toshiba manual which states " switch on computer while holding down the zero key and follow on screen instructions" This gives no results either. This unit does not have a cd reader. How can I recover this can anyone give me help?

The recovery warning screen failed to appear.I am unsure what I need to do next.
I have tried all the procedures several times but end up with a blank screen.The only screen I can get onto is the F2 display and when I try to reload default settings nothing happens. Help!!

<F2> "...reload default settings..." is for bios settings

... the red under lined link does also mention to remove any peripherals.

... can you enter "safe mode" by tapping the <F8> <key> @ bootup?

... if so take a look @ Disk management to see if the recovery partition exists

... click "start" run (type) diskmgmt.msc [press enter]

... did it come with xp or vista pre-installed?

Managed to get on to F8 at startup and attempted "safe mode" but no joy with this.
Tried several other options on F8 screen but again ended with blank screen.
I'd love to get this little machine up and running again without a visit to the repair shop as they have quoted around $200 to repair!!!

The unit came with Windows XP pre-installed.

Further info. After pressing enter from "safe mode" the screen goes on to "please select operating system" the single choice is XP Home Edition.After choosing this option the screen goes blank.

There is no error message at all. I can only get to any page by pressing either F8 or F2. Looks like a visit to the repair shop I think yes?

Thanks for your help Mavis007

... do you have a recovery dvd you can use with an external cd/dvd device?

https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/land...

... I gather that you do'nt have a built-in one(?)

... www.google search reveals tapping the <F12> <key> @ bootup for this function perhaps there's a recovery option from there also(?)

No I don't have an external cd drive. Well technically I do on this computer but I would not know how to interconnect them. Will this mean I have to ask Toshiba for a recovery disc?

Cheers
