Windows XP Media - Service Pack 3 download, Wont startup after download shut down.

No matter what I pick in safe mode it just keeps going back and forth every 30 seconds, From Windows Media Screen to Toshiba Screen to Safe mode option screen, I,ve tried pulling the battery and unplug to see if it would completly lose power to force it to START up normal. Nothing. It wont even attempt to read the RESTORE DISK.

    I have the same problem, but don't have windows SP3, just regular ol' Windows XP. It's a pain, mine is a Compaq (Somethingorother) but instead of sayung "Toshiba", it goes to the "Windows" logo, then it just restarts. Any suggestions...?

    Cheers, Davey.

Keep the battery unplugged but make sure you have the power cord still plugged in, and when you see the toshiba screen press F8 i believe or F1. In there you need to change to the boot order so that the CDrom boots first if you want to try and restore from CD

Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a time previous to last update > Next > etc

Wont load passed windows xp screen


Try holding down the "F-8" key when the emachines logo appears, see if you get a prompt for "safe mode". If you can get the system up and running in safe mode, shut it back down from the start menu. That should rewrite the boot sector and may clear the problem.

Keeps cycling between Startup and Windows Screen


On the safe mode page look for the "last known good configuration"
Should work if it doesn't it may be a a lost cause service pack 3 does this a lot especaily on media centre computers

Try booting with using the Last Known Good Configuration option.

Try to go in safe mode and then uninstall Old Yahoo version.
Presssing F8 key during Startup, and choose option of "Safe mode with networking".

Also if you have Win XP with service Pack 1 then you will not allow to get the latest version of Yahoo.
So check whether you have the latest Service Pack ( Service Pack 3 for Win XP and Service Pack 1 for Vista )
