Toshiba laptop when turned on it freezes as windows is starting

Windows 2000 Professional is as far as I get....the message says please wait, preparting network connections, but does not do anything else after that. I was wondering if there is a certain way to boot the computer up with viewing some type of solutions menu??

Insert the disk in the cd rom and restart your computer......enter bios and change the boot settings...to boot from cd rom......boot of the cd and look for options such as check disk....repair disk...disk tools.....do a check disk ...or run a repair.....

Once you boot of the cd it will give you step by step details as how to repair the OS....

If you are unable to boot from cd..download a UBCD and created a boot cd this is much easier to use...

keep me posted

Cheers!

Yeah so about 3 weeks ago, my Dell D600 which is running XP Professional SP3, 2gb ram, an internal bluetooth, and using a usb wireless adapter, started to freeze at completly spontanious times. Everything...


Hi Chad,

It sounds like it could be 1 of 2 issues either the memory or your hard drive may be failing.

Please do the following:

Turn on the computer. When the DELL logo appears, press immediately. If you wait too long and the Microsoft Windows logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press .

Please choose the express test and post the results.

Toshiba laptop


Does your laptop manage to boot up to windows and then freeze or does it freeze before it starts to boot up?

If it freezes before bootup, it sounds like a bad motherboard and/or processor.

Please respond...

Please send win98se driver for hp laptop model no. nx7300


Hello sir.

I understand that you need windows 98 drivers for your Notebook.

I have searched the HP website and found the drivers for the following operating systems.

Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP Home edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows Vista Home
Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise
Microsoft Windows Vista Business

But not for Microsoft Windows 98...

Windows 98 is considered to be obsolete now. As far as I know no one will provide drivers for this model Notebook for Windows 98. Please install atleast Windows 2000 in the Notebook for the drivers to work correctly.

For other operating system drivers other than Windows 98 could be found in the following link..

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.


Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!

Failure to load windows


If you can try a different hard drive. And make sure the format of the hard drive that's installed doesn't freeze or doesn't complete.
Those are just the first things that popped into my mind,
I'm sure other's will have more suggestions.
Good luck.
