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.

Forgot window xp password to login for my Toshiba Satellite a105 s2194 system unit Model PsAA5U-00Z01C


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

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.

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

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 :)

Cannot right click on toshiba A105


Suggestion: Go to Device Manager.
Go to control panel --> click on system --> click the hardware tab --> click device manager --> click on mice and other pointing devices --> delete the mouse by highlighting and going to action at the top, scroll to uninstall. Reboot the computer. XP should install the mouse drivers fresh upon reboot.

Second: Try an Auxiliary mouse (USB or PS/2)

Third: If all else fails, download service pack 2 or 3 and install. This will fix many issues.

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.
