Okay, So I've been fighting this stupid laptop, Toshiba L45-S7424. It doesn't have a recovery partition so I've burned the ISO and planned to use the Key on the OEM sticker on the bottom of the machine. However, when attempting to boot from the DVD I burned (got the ISO file from mydigitallife.info) the screen shows me the "Windows is loading files" then immediately gives me the following error.
Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred
I ran chkdisk /f with no bad sectors...I am at a loss here? I've also run AVG's Rescue CD to second check my guess that the hard disk is fine. I am not 100% sure that the CD drive is perfect, but also haven't had any issues running anything from the CD while in Windows either that I know of?
Any guesses as to how I can go about clean installing Windows 7 32 bit on this machine would be appreciated. It is currently running Win 7 32 but there are issues (it freezes often, programs regularly stop responding, etc). I've clean several bugs from the system using Avast!, Malwarebytes, and AdAware but the weirdness continues?
