    I have had this laptop for a while, it has been getting progressively worse over the years and now appears to have completely given up.

    I can barely open anything without being asked which programme i would like to open it with, and web browsing is becoming next to impossible.

    I have all product recovery disks but when i attempt to use them by following the instruction "Insert disk in to drive, turn on your PC whilst keeping the C key pressed" nothing happens, after a whole lot of bleeping windows continues to load.

    I am close to throwing this thing out of the window (I live in a 3rd floor flat) but cannont afford a replacement. If anyone can offer me any advice whatsoever i'd very much appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Hi buddy,

    If I understand you right you want to reinstall Windows. Is this right?

    Therefore you should use the Toshiba recovery disk. As far as I know on old Satellite L10 there is no HDD recovery option available, so pressing the C key will not help you.

    So insert the Toshiba recovery disk and start your notebook. Then go in the BIOS or BIOS boot menu and choose booting from CD/DVD drive.
    The CD will start and you can reinstall Windows :)

    Try also follow:
    Start your notebook and press F12 several times
    When boot menu is shown put recovery disc into optical disc drive
    Choose CD/DVD drive on the list and press ENTER

    ODD should start to work and hopefully to read recovery disc.
    Just follow the menu on the screen.
