Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4639 Notebook
When I power on my computer (A205-S5803) with Vista it begins to boot as normal then goes to a Startup Repair screen. Then a message say Startup cannont repair. I have two options View diagnostic and repair details and Viwe advanced options for system recovery and support. If I click the former I get some info, I don't understand. If I click the latter I get a box asking languange then another requesting my password. I tried all the passwords I would have used and non of them seem to be working. When I purchased this computer I didn't see any way to create a recovery disk so I didn't do it. Is there any way for me to get this password? Is it possible this is a virus? Just before this happen the computer did an auto update then on the reboot it never came back up.
I just experienced this last weekend. The only thing that worked for mine was to take it to someone who knew how to retrieve all my documents and photos, etc and then he had to wipe my machine clean and start over. I got it back last night. It's working fine now, but apparently this is a known Vista issue and Microsoft doesn't have an answer for it yet.
