Sorry to hear about your trouble. From the error you stated, it seems your SR got corrupted (common with norton/symantec products). The best bet is to try System Restore from Safe Mode.

As for your second problem, here is an alternate way to access Safe Mode (I am assuming you can get into Normal Mode):

  1. Go to START, then RUN
  2. type "msconfig" and hit enter
  3. the system configuration window will appear
  4. among the several tabs across the top, one of them will say "boot.ini", click this tab
  5. there will be a box that you can check next to Safe Mode.
  6. Click Apply, then OK
  7. Restart
  8. Keep in mind that your computer will automaticall go in to safe mode until you uncheck this box.
Good luck and keep us updated!

I cant turn on my laptop, it says that an error occure while attempting to read boot configuration data, what should i do?i dont have back-ups

If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7, Insert your installation DVD and select Start-up Repair from the options. If Windows completes a check of the startup problems and is unable to fix the problem - follow the procedures located at this support link or go to "Suggestion 1" - If Start-up repair fixes the issue, HOORAY! you should be able to boot up without a problem when you restart the system. Performing a system restore usually will not help repair or reverse a corrupted boot sector.
CANT FIND YOUR WINDOWS INSTALLATION DVD???? Don't sweat it... if you or anyone you know have a legitimate copy of Windows Vista or Windows 7 running on one of their systems - you can make a repair disk on their system and use it on your own. The menu for how to do this is located in Control Panel under Back Up and Restore --- Create a System Repair Disk.
Suggestion 1 - Download a Live CD or Live USB Version of Knoppix or GParted . download the latest version of Gparted here: and full documentation here: These are Linux Operating Systems which install into memory and boot from your CDROM drive or USB thumb drive completely bypassing your native operating system and hard disk drive. Each of these operating systems uses a familiar interface and install with a complete set of features to enable internet access, diagnostics & troubleshooting tools, media creation and burning tools, back-up and drive image tools, in addition to disk utilities, usb utilities, system profilers, file viewers etc.
Why is this useful? If you have critical data on your laptop you do not want to lose, these operating systems will not only provide you diagnostic and repair tools, but allow you to retrieve your critical and important information from your Windows installation and save it to another USB drive or DVD/CDROM Disk . . . or even a cloud storage location. Because the error you are reporting indicates an possible issue with your computers boot sector which is preventing it from starting up, this could be due to damage or major failure of your hard driver
Use GParted's Disk Diagnostic Smart tools to detect HDD failures. You can use the partition editor to repair or reformat the boot sector once you have backed up and saved to a new location any data you wished to preserve. You can also use GParted as a temporary Operating System even if your hard drive is dead or missing. You just set your laptop system settings (BIOS) to boot from the DVD/CDROM if bootable media is present. You can use a USB flash drive to save settings, download and install additional packages such as Open Office or save system and error reports. Remember GParted loads completely into your systems memory and uses very little resources. This means one it loads up, your CD/DVD ROM drive is free to use for saving files or installing other programs. If it will be awhile before you can get a new Hard Drive for your laptop, GParted will allow you to continue to use your laptop and all of its features to stay productive until you can have a new Hard Disk installed.
Suggestion 2 There are several other boot sector rescue tools out there which can diagnose and fix the boot sector issue if it is not due to catastrophic disk failure. My personal favorite is ACRONIS DISK DIRECTOR SUITE and you can download a trial version from their web site You will need to create their bootable rescue CD on a working computer, then use it to boot your Toshiba just like mentioned above for GParted or the Windows Installation Disk. Acronis will allow you to restore or repair partitions and boot sectors. Another handy feature is the Acronis OS selector which allows you to have multiple Operating Systems on your Computer and a menu to choose which one you wish to boot into at each start-up. I recommend Acronis Disk Director, their products are comprehensive at any experience level, well supported, reasonably priced and highly useful.
ACTIVE BOOT DISK provides a decent solution as well Again, you will need to create their Bootable System Rescue CD on a working computer to use on your Toshiba. Follow the instructions provided by Active Boot Disk for your particular error or issue.
Other Free Boot Sector Repair Softwares:
Or if you have Win 7 & Vista use FREE DATA RECOVERY WIZARD )
If all else fails, there should be a way to restore your system using built in recover tools on a separate partition set-up by Toshiba. Consult their web site or your laptop user manual for instructions.
HOPE THIS HELPS FIXYA! If resuming a state of personal computing Zen was made possible by one of the options of suggestions I offered here, won't you please show some love and rate the solution or even supply us with a testimonial? We love knowing when our geek-speak makes someone elses life a little bit easier:-)

I installed system suite 8 professional on my computer. Now my computer will not go past windows xp window..i cant get to safe mode or anything, and lost my windows xp disk. any suggestion?

try last known good in the menu instead of safe mode other than that you will most likely need the operating system disc to repair or reinstall the system.........if you are lucky you have a backup on the hard drive try hitting the F 10 or F 11 button when you first start to boot up to see if you have a hidden restore on the disk if so it will give you a menu for a restore follow the prompts to repair the computer best to go to a working computer and go to your computers website and look up the manual it has valuable info.

When I try uninstalling system suite 8 it tells me that network resources is unavailable and ask for an alternate path to the installation package. How can I remove it?

Restart you computer and when it's going to switch on press F8 several times until safemode displays. Click safemode then just follow path by ticking OK or yes. Go to user account that you always log on. Mouse over start menu and click control panel. Open Add/Remove program and uninstall from there suite 8. Then restart.
