Hi --

When trying to sweep clean my Toshiba laptop by reverting to the factory
configuration using the recovery CD, I encountered the following error

"ERROR! Extraction failed"

Nothing works from this point on.

Does anyone have an idea on how to solve this problem? Any advice will be
highly appreciated.

Had the same problem on a older 1625CDT. Recovery CD worked about 2/3
way through failed. I finially just found the right drivers on the
Toshiba site and used my own Windows 98SE(is the original OS on the
1625) played like a champ. Now using Mandrake 9.2 OS and am the
happiest I have ever been with this laptop.
No more M$ on this Toshiba.
