Questions & Answers
I want to know how
This is in case you cannot boot into windows but you can get into bios:
Open your disk drive. Insert windows operating system disk into your disk drive. Restart your computer.
If you can get to the stage where you can see see bios entry key then
keep pressing whatever key it is that you press to get into bios at
Select the option that let's you choose the drive to boot from, mine is
in advanced bios options. then go to either something like bios features
or change boot drive.select whatever drive represents your CD-ROM drive
and select it to be the first boot drive.
then save exit bios, I do this by pressing escape then Y to save and boot from the rom drive.
This will let you restart your installation of windows and
re-format the drive...
If you can boot into windows:
Then either re-format the drive and delete the partition when you do or...
Run a recovery of the system by installing your disk and letting it get
to the stage wher it asks what action/task you want to perform and
press r when prompted then follow the prompts to repair the files. This
might not work though,
you could even try running a disk check as maybe a lucky chance of repair if you can get into windows.
If your PC keeps trying to boot from the CD drive after repair then
re-enter bios at start up and change your hard drive back to first boot
device to boot into windows.
It's better if you re-format though as repairing windows can be a little tricky.

My Toshiba Portege M200 just
Try removing the battery and see if it will boot without it
Then check the caharger, charging light should be green and steady on the charger itself
If it is flickering, it meand power is not making a circuit, test charger jack with a DC volt multimeter with one probe to the outer side (earth) and one on the inner (positive). If this is ok, check the charging socket is not loose (if it is, will need replacing).
After that, suspect the power strip or charging / powerboard is dead on the motherboard

Windows won't start
this problem occurs when the files in the master boot record get corrupt
due to the actions of the viruses or any malfunction
this problem can be solved by repairing the current OS by the OS cd
if you are an expert you can edit the MBR
probably the message show NTLDR missing ,right
or format the system will surely solve the problem

I ave a toshiba m200
Hi,it is possible that the resultant cause the problem is your hard drive(caused by the hard disk failing to be READ from or be WRITTEN to,in this case be READ from),or one of your Memory modules is failing,so first of all try swapping or switching the RAM modules from one slot to the next,one at a time,if system is still slow,take out your hard disk,get a converter,slave hard disk to another system copy your files out and get a new Hard disk.

Do you have anti-virus installed? You may have a virus that prevents you from surfing the net.
Also check if you are getting an IP address. Go to start>run>type in cmd and press enter. On the command prompt(black screen) enter in ipconfig and see if you have a IP address

Can't use tablet option in M200 (is there a stand alone driver?)
yes it can be done,
you need the tablet pc driver from wacom.com

i did answer another post with a similar problem and gave the exact driver details so search other problems and you should find it.
hope that helps
