I have my friends laptop here and I wanted to reformat it for him. It was loaded with trojans and spyware and was just god awful slow. Crashing all the time, etc.
Anyway yesterday I popped in the windows XP disk and started formatting. It got to 56% and froze there. I left it for 1 hour but it was frozen for sure.
I propped up the computer so it could get some air flow. I have had laptops that need good air circulation while formatting otherwise they do freeze. Anyway, I tried again but I couldn't even get it to boot.
The main screen "In Touch with Tomorrow - TOSHIBA" in red is the only thing you see.
There is a little blue bar that loads halfway, then nothing.
F2 is bios, F12 is boot options. If I press F2 it says "Please wait..." but nothing ever happens.
