Hey guys, 1st timer here. have error on log in 0x80090019. windows has been activated, old toshiba lap top, my brother somehow gave it the good ol' blue screen fatal error,.... yea. so i tried to reinstall windows.... and it eventually gives me corupt dac960nt.sys
so i googled that, tells me, if i read it right, that it keeps me from basically reinstalling windows.
hard drive is working, still browseable. idk, thats why i'm here.

If you contact Toshiba they may be able to get you an original recovery cd for the model for a minimum amount of cost.
Is your XP pro OEM or Retail?
Was XP Pro originally on the toshiba?
Does toshiba boot at all?
On most Laptops there is a Recovery Partition that allows the user to format and reload system back to factory default.
To access this partition do the following...

Power off the laptop.
Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears.
Start tapping the zero key repeatedly at this point.
Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears.
The screen should flash HDD RECOVERY MODE for a second and then it will load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software.

You can try it with the desktop but I don't know for sure if it will work.

Have you verified by using Drive Fitness Test or another diagnostic tool that your drive is good?

Did you get to the Recovery Partition?
Can you do the recovery to bring the laptop system back to factory defaults?
