I believe your problem lies in the process explorer.exe

To fix this I would press Ctrl + Shift + Esc and the task manager will come up.

Once it does click the Processes tab and look for explorer.exe and right click it and choose End Task.

Then you need to click File > New Task
and type in:
explorer.exe

If it dont work let me know and I will look into a different method.

My toshiba nb200 process initialisation failed


You may not be able to load the XP disks - because the unit was manufactured after XP and drivers/controllers may not be available. You can try to boot in SAFE MODE, but finding the drivers that were never written for that model could be a 'needle in a haystack' to locate that works to display or address items in the main system.

What can i do for my laptop, when i turn it on the XP splash screen displays, and then it just goes blank, no cursor, but it is still running


try booting into safe mode. hit the f8 key during bootup to get that option and see if safe mode works fine. If it does, then the problem is a bad or corrupt video driver. The display itself could be going bad, also, but that seems less likely if you can see the splash screen every time. If you cant boot into safe mode, you may have corrupt OS and need to do a repair install.

Reformat and Reinstall XP, this would
clear whatever data is on the laptop. Or do an XP repair.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Boots but to a blank screen just the pointer remains


Have you tried safe mode? You can access it by hitting F8 while the computer is booting up (I tend to press it at 1 second intervals, much faster and the computer gets annoyed :P) You'll get a menu that will let you pick safe mode.

If you can get at the desktop in safe mode then i would suggest shutting off all your start up programs (the list can be accessed by going to the start menu, selecting run, typing in "msconfig" and pressing enter). After those are shut off try rebooting back into normal mode and see if that works. If it does, then you know that a program starting up with the computer is causing the problem and just need to be singled out and removed.

Good luck :)

You need to do a recovery using the recovery console. There is an option during startup, if you are running XP or later, to press F11 for emergency recovery.

Press F11 and choose the option to recover and backup.

This will backup all files and programs currently installed on your computer.

After the recovery process finishes, you will have to go through the process of setting up your computer, like you did when you first bought it.

After you are all setup again, it is a good idea to create recovery disks under the 'Start' menu, 'Recovery' option.

TMOUSE (01) error - Win 98 bootup


Try booting using the step-by-step confirmation instead of safe mode. Skip loading the mouse driver that is causing the error. You won't have a mouse when you get booted up but you can use keyboard commands to navigate everything while you try to reload drivers.
