This one is a Toshiba Satellite 420CD with Win 95. Its owner has sent it to me because it has locked up.
I have unlocked it and indeed got it going, writing docs, sending E=mails even ,but not for long. When it will lock again. Then it will not really restart -because of 'Improper shut down' It will run scan disk , and some times start, or sometimes lock in scandisk .
I aam tempted to reformat and reload, but am aware of the strange HDD configuration on these beasties with the drive space utility the kids us that a a 270 Mb disk is 1.2 Gb or similar. The machine has no disks. So I am loath to reformat. - yet Any suggestions anyone.
