Re: Toshiba laptop when turned on it freezes as windows...
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...

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.
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..
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.
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.
