VISTA boot-up disk

  novis 23:25 25 May 2010

My toshiba laptop is erratically failing to boot into windows. It may be the cmos battery [this was someone's suggestion]. Would a boot disk be a temporary solution?

Where can I find the right boot specs to download to an external drive -and which do I need?

Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 (build 6002)
1.60 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready

cmos batteries are cheap enough, a couple of pounds.

That would be the first thing to try.

Cheap enough for most computers - Toshiba have their own dedicated battery, I believe. For those who know how to install them. In the meantime, I'm looking for a lateral solution top the problem.

If you google toshiba laptop batteries, you will find the vary from 10 pence to £12. depending on your model.

Save all the hassle.

All the best.
