Hello,

I also had a Toshiba satellite 1800-412, it belongs to my elder bro. I used it often for my studies and sharing pic stuff. But suddenly the windows got corrupt then showed an error related to OS.. The Display is not working and the Fan on the bottom left side not working either... I know that these days some people don't use much Laptops anymore but I need HELP.. Hoping to get a reply soon...

Regards
KM-Khurram

Hi KM

How is this for service? Contrary to your saying, more people are using laptops then desktops.

To solve your issue, you must restore the laptop to factory settings. You may loose all of your data but it's better than having a dead laptop.

Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partition on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED ON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURING THIS PROCESS.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

Good luck

Do you know why this error occurrs? I was reading a webpage and my computer completely shut down and I had to follow the steps exactly as you have out lined. Im worried something is wrong since this computer is less than a month old and the only thing i have saved/downloaded on it is my resume....
