Try this:

Restore Point:



Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.



Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..



Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



If Restore does not work and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a Bootable Repair Disk to do a Startup Repair:



Download the ISO file at the supplied link, and make a Bootable Startup Repair Disk from it.



Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.



At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu.



When you have changed that, insert that Bootable Disk you have made in the Drive, and reboot.

Above link shows what the process looks like, and a how-to, as it loads to the Repair Options.



Neosmart contains the contents of the Windows Vista DVD\'s "recovery center," as we\'ve come to refer to it. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, one could re-create this installation media with freely-downloadable media from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK kit, a multi-gigabyte download); but it\'s decent of Microsoft to make this available to Windows\' users who might not be capable of creating such a thing on their own.



Read all info at the website about creating and using it:



http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/



ISO Burner: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html



It makes a very good Vista Startup Repair Disk.



You can do a Startup Repair, System Restore, etc from it.


Note: It is not a reinstall disc.

I have lost my instruction booklet and it has been almost 1.5 years since I have used the notebook. I cannot get it to turn off. It keeps saying Windows is Shuting Down; however, it is still on. Can...


Hi There,

Simply hold down the power button until the notebook shuts down. Then, restart the notebook and it may just boot up normally. If you're taken to a screen with options that include Startup Repair or Start Windows Normaly, try Normaly first. If it won't start, use Startup Repair the next time around.

When you leave a notebook off that long, Windows may have tried to install dozens of updates. You will need to patiently update Windows completely.

Regards,

Selk

How can i make my laptop work faster


Run disk defragmenter located on the system tools menu. You can also disable some startup items that run in the background therefore slowing your system.
To disable startup items:
  1. Use the System Configuration Utility to safely turn off programs that start-up through the Windows Registry. Access this utility by going to the Start -> Runrun.jpg
  2. Type msconfig and press Enter.
  3. Under the Startup tab there is a list of all the programs that start in the Windows Registry. By unchecking many of the programs you can speed up the launch time of Windows.
  4. You may uncheck everything but it is recommended to keep your antivirus checked to keep you protected always.config.jpg

Laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro L-10 will start up to Windows Login, but after login desktop does not startup. Any ideas?


Can you boot up in safe mode? If so, the problem may be too many startup items causing the machine to hang after windows loads. If you can boot to safe mode, go to start, run, type msconfig, go to the start up tab and remove the items you don't need to auto start.

try pressing F8 again on startup and go to start>programs>accessories>system tools> system restore and choose a date when you know you computer was working without any problems. When the computer reboots if asked choose start windows normally.

You can do one thing disable the startup items from the msconfig.

Go to start -->Run-->Type msconfig --> open the startup tab -->uncheck or disable all items listed here.

If you face any difficulty add more details, so we can further investigate the problem.

Lap top turns on, however Windows will not start. It keeps going the the "We apologize for the inconvenience,..." choose how you want to restart.


Hi Lisa,
Somehow you have activated the startup sequence request in the msconfig utility. Start up your laptop, press F8 till you come to the boot sequence options menu, select Safe Mode, hit ENTER wait, then when in safe mode, a warning wndow appears just informing you that you have started in Safe Mode ... bla bla bla... Click OK. Then press start button, go to Run.. and in the dialogue box type msconfig and hit ENTER. In the msconfig utility window check on the dot next to Normal Startup - Loda all device drivers & services. Click apply & Ok then Restart your unit. I think this should solve your problem.
