Ah , that simple means you have some corrupt files.....we can try a couple of things before getting too dirty:

  1. I would first suggest starting the computer up and tapping the "F8" key...it will take you to a black screen with white lettering. There will be an option near the bottom that reads "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration" , select that option.....If you are able to get into Windows , we are done! If not proceed to step 2

  2. Ok , when you bought your computer you should have received a Windows XP disc..we are going to need that. Insert the disc into the cd drive and restart the computer. At one point it is going to say something along the lines of "Press Any key To Boot From CD" , when you see that press something on the keyboard.......It will now load up a blue screen.

  3. When that blue screen is done loading , you will see an option to enter the "Recovery Console", select that. This is going to bring you to a screen resembling DOS

  4. Now, type in the following commands with pressing Enter after each line.

    md tmp
    copy C:\windows\system32\config\system C:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    delete C:\windows\system32\config\system
    copy C:\windows\repair\system C:\windows\system32\config\system


  5. Now restart the computer and see if it boots into Windows , if it does not go back to the recovery console

  6. This time use these commands:

    md tmp
    copy C:\windows\system32\config\software C:\windows\tmp\software.bak
    delete C:\windows\system32\config\software
    copy C:\windows\repair\software C:\windows\system32\config\software

This should get you back on your feet, if not let us know and I can give you some further assistance!

I Have a Toshiba laptop that says error loading operating system


If you have a windows xp CD you could try a repair installation. Start to install windows, and when it checks for previous versions it may give you the option to repair. this will look like a fresh install but your files will still be intact.
If the repair option is not there, you will need to format the HD and start from sctratch

Keep getting this message <window


Hello,
  • "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
    <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
    Please re-install a copy of the above file."

  • "<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:
    Please re-install a copy of the above file."

  • "Cannot find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"

  • "Cannot find hal.dll"
The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error displays shortly after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded when this error message appears. CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.

    Please let me know you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

My laptop keeps restarting all the time after i turn it on it only say TOSHIBA pres F2 for the boot and thats it. my laptop is TOSHIBA portege 7200


It seems to be a hard drive failure.
Your laptop can not see the boot files.
Try to repair windows using recovery disc or to reinstal a fresh copy of windows.
if you are installing a fresh copy and you will get a error message like no hard disk found.. try to check hard disk.

Will not boot says operating system not found


if it was working before that message, then probably the operating system is corrupted.
insert the windows cd when you boot your pc and when the message "Press any key to boot from dvd" appear press enter.
Follow the screens to repair Windows. the sytem files will be restored.

Laptop won't start up in Windows due to a missing or corrupt file


No all you have to do is follow its instructions and use the Windows XP cd and during startup boot to the cd and during installation choose the repair option.

This will not make you lose any files and then you will be able to get in and back to work or whatever it is for again.

Most Windows XP Blue screen errors are

reolved by the following.

Run CHKDSK /R

Do this by opening "My computer"
Right click on the C: drive (most often

named "local Disk") and select

properties.
Click on the Tools tab.
Click on "Check Now"
Check "Automatically fix file system

errors" and Scan for and attempt

recovery of bad sectors"
Click Start and then "OK" on the error

that comes up.
Now reboot your computer.

This will probably fix the error.
