Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
My new Toshiba laptop recently clunked out. First it said an optical or removable drive was faulty, then it says my system registry is either corrupt or missing. Plus I can't even reformat the Hard Drive. Is there a way I can get it running without losing all my data?
Try this first (I know your drive is "inaccessible"): Hopefully you have a Vista installation disk, if not download and burn this iso file with Img Burn or similar program:
Insert the disk in your drive even if you have to insert a paper clip into the little hole on the drive faceplate to open the drive bay door.
Try to boot into the Vista installation window. If you can do that, run the start up repair utility.
Please do not rate this post(s) until we have tried more solutions, as there are some other remedies, but try this one first.
If this doesn't work for you, please post back.
