This sounds like a file error (but not positive). My suggestion would be to change your boot order in bios ( a must since this is a Vista machine and CD-ROM is always set as one of the last. Hit F1 (or maybe F2?) when first turning it on to get the bios screen. Go to the Boot menu and set the CD-Rom as the first in order, then hit F-10 to exit and save. Be sure to put in your vista op system cd in your rom drive and see if you can't do a system recovery with it. I know that it was an option with XP.

Try to boot the windows from external DVD or CD ROM on USB if you have acces to your BIOS set the bios to boot from USB. i think your CD/DVD rom is not working properly, or is no booting from it bios is not setup corectly.

Windows wont boot up when I turn on my Toshiba


You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.

Every time i start my lap top it brings me to a window that asks me to start in safe mode.. what does this mean


Your boot up file is damaged. On that same screen it should give you an option to use the last know good configuration. use that one and it should solve your problem.

Wont start-up


What operating system are you running? Also, have you downloaded or installed any programs lately ? If so, try pressing F8 at boot to start in safe mode and uninstall the most recent programs in "add & remove programs" in control panel.

My Toshiba A205 S4777 won't start up and I can't use the recovery media to fix it.


Try flashing the bios by pulling the chord out attached to the "watch" battery.

My laptop won't start up and i can't use the recovery media to sort it out.


its sounds either your windows has been currepted or you have some missing driver/software wich cause re-start.
  • Try to boot in safe mode.
  • Start pressing F8 after making on your lap til the boot option menu appears.
  • Select Safe Mode and press enter.
  • If your lap boots well then, goto Start -> Run and type msconfig in the commad box and press enter key.
  • In System Configuration Utility click on Services tab and click Hide All Microsoft Services after that click on disable all. Then press Ok and reboot your lap normally. After do same as above and enable one by one service to get which cause problem.

If it even does not boot in safe mode, then i think you should re-install windows.

Thanks & good luck
