    Help, please.

    I have been reading through the User's Manual for my new lap top before setting it up and am feeling rather nervous.

    The salesman said that it should open automatically when I start it up, and all I then had to do was install the printer and (say) my m/s word program and I would be up and running.

    But it sounds as if I should first of all make some recovery disks.
    How many disks are needed? DVD presumably - or D/L.?
    Can the recovery disk(s) be made after other programs are installed?

    Secondly, it mentions the online manual. Where do I find this?
    I have a scanner and external Seagate HD, but these can be added later.
    I am using the laptop as a desktop replacement for my five year old Mesh PC.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi

    Yes, itís very important to create the Recovery disk before you would change anything on your notebooks HDD.
    After you have finished the Vista setup you should start the application called Toshiba recovery Disk Creator.
    This application will help you to create the Recovery disk.

    As Iím not mistaken you would need one DVDÖ. I recommend using an DVD-R.

    Note; in some cases you can get an error burning the Recovery DVD. This can happens because not all disks are fully compatible. So if you would get such error please check different DVDs from different manufacturers

    Bye

    Many thanks, Jayjay. I have completed the initial stages and created the recovery disks - it needed TWO DVDs. Now to connect to the internet.
