my pc laptop does not start due to error 2000-03000


Try using the Last Known Good Configuration:
  • Remove any CD or DVD from your computer, power down, then power up.
  • Do one of the following:
    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by shutting down and restarting your computer.
    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.
  • On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press Enter.
  • If your computer has more than one operating system installed, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system that you want to start by using Last Known Good Configuration, and then press Enter. Windows will then resume starting normally

    toshiba laptop restarting


    The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

    During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


    This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

    The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


    You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

    This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


    Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


    Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


    Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


    Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


    Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


    Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


    Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


    Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


    Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


    Hope this helps
