    hi slick54,

    Thank you for your reply, much appreciated.

    Unfortunately I can't start up in safe mode, so i'm kind of stuck as to carrying out your solution. No doubt there is too many startup items, I would say your solution would resolve the problem.

    It has been mentioned that maybe a full rebuild to resolve, but do you know of another way to access safe mode reboot??

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.

    Hello CBrowne77,



    Sorry to hear you cannot boot in safe mode, damn these computers, ha, ha. The next option and most likely the best option seeing you are not even able to get to safe mode is unfortunately a complete reformat. If you have the windows CD pop it in the CDRom drive and boot directly from the CD. It will tell you that a previous version of windows is already installed would you like to over write it, answer yes. If you have files in my documents it may keep them, however you may end up losing any personal files you have on the machine.



    Let me know how you proceed and I will do whatever I can to help you out.

I'm assuming the password is for your windows login and not a BIOS password.
You can try a reinstall but if you haven't backed up your system you may loose your data.

hi there,
thanks for providing the OS type.
The issue may be with any hardware or software you recently installed /uninstalled.,

It may also be due to the reason that some Hardware has stopped its function alltogather or has got a wrong update.

We may diagnose the issue by;
1. restart in Safe mode. Resolved? No
2. Restart F8: VGA mode

Still not fixed?

3. restart in safemode again,
Go Start>Run> Msconfig
startup tab;
uncheck not necessary items .(You need to be most decisive in this step)
4. ok.
5. shtdown.
6. reboot in safe mode

Worked?

Last resort:
Reinsall OS:

After login desktop doesn't appear im using


Hello,

It seems you have a virus, where you only see the mouse pointer and no desktop icons nor start bar ?
Please update anti-virus database then run virus scan.

If you are sure you do NOT have a virus, try to do a system restore to a point when you know the laptop was working with desktop available.

For Windows Vista/7, press on start then type in SYSTEM RESTORE, double-click on the icon that comes up, choose "Restore previous point".

no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

Power off the system, then power it back on and see if you can get to the desktop. If you can, then go to the screen saver settings and uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box.

If you cannot boot into windows, then power off again, the power on and tap F8 to get the Windows Startup menu, select SAFE MODE and see if you get a login prompt, if you do select the username ADMIN with a blank password and see if you can get to Windows. If you do, go to control panel, user Accounts and remove the password from the user account.

If none of that works, then here is a last ditch alternative.
