Boot to the WIndows XP CD, and at the first prompt, press R to enter Recovery Console. Once at the C: prompt, type CHKDSK /R and let the run, once finished, reboot and see if the system will boot.

If it still is in a reboot loop, or if CHKDSK reports unrecoverable errors, then you may have a hdd problem, run HDD diagnostics and see if you get a failure code.

If diags pass, try repairing the installation with the XP CD (Odds are fair to poor at fixing issue) if that fails try a clean install of XP (Sometimes that is the only resolution)

If the HDD fails diags or if all the above fails, replace the hard drive

MY TOSHIBA SATELITTE C850D IS NOT BOOTING


Have you tried a System Restore/recovery? Will it boot to Safe Mode? If you remove ALL media DVD,CD,USB, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot, any change? Remove the HDD, test.

Password for toshiba m645


Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

When I turn on my laptop it goes to a windows error recovery page and gives me the options to launch startup repair or start windows normally. When I launch the startup repair my screen goes black and only...


Hello.

Sounds like the Windows Recovery Partition is corrupted or your hard drive may be faulty.

But, first try to boot your system in Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly as it boots) and choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good.

If it still doesn't boot properly, try the diagnostics to determine if a hardware problem - boot your system and press F 12 (or F2) repeatedly.

Hope this helps.

I want to boot my pc to the safe mood but i cant i've used f8, f10, and dont know wat to do now.


In order to get into Windows safe mode, you need to begin pressing the F8 key repeatedly AS SOON as you see the BIOS/manufacturer name come up, WELL before you see the Windows splash screen. Basically as soon as it goes to 'black screen', begin hitting the F8 key and while it may take a couple of times, you should get there!
Best of luck! Hope this helps!

My toshiba satallite l305-s5909 wont display a screen. I turn it on and after the toshiba logo goes away the screen turns to black with a funny symbol and cursor blinking in the top left corner


Restart your laptop, as soon as it powers on (even before you see the logo), repeatedly tap on F8 to get to the advanced boot menu. Select the option for Last Known Good Configuration and see if it would boot up. If not, Repeat the procedure but this thime, choose safe mode. If you're able to boot to safe mode, you can just do a system restore to a date when it was working fine.

Problem with Toshiba Laptop U


this is clearly a no boot issue. you can actually do a power cycle first. remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter. press and hold the power button on the computer for 10 secs to drain all power inside the computer. turn on the computer. if it still freezes, tried to boot to safe mode. as soon as you see the Toshiba logo on the screen, start tapping on the F8 button as quick as you can to access Windows Advanced Boot Options. then choose safe mode only. if it doesn't solve the problem then most likely, your Windows XP is already corrupted. try to do system recovery. please be reminded that you will lose all data if you run the recovery.

i hope this helps.
