Perhaps the shutdown corrupted a critical Windows startup file. Have you tried a Windows repair? You'll need the Windows XP CD to do it. An explanation is here: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm#RI

When i go to start it up, it shows the Windows XP loading screen, then a black then blue screen flash for less than a 1/2 second.


It's called a BSOD which means blue screen of death. try to boot into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as the computer starts hit it repeatedly, then try last known configuration that worked. If that doesn't work, reboot and try F8 again and go to safe mode, then do a system restore.

Wont get to the login screen no matter which option i click


If you are able to start the pc in safe mode, login as Administrator and restore the computer to a previous date when it was working fine.

When you turn on the computer in safe mode, it will show you the default user and Administrator. Click on Administrator to logon.

Then it will show you a screen which tell you that the windows is running in safe mode, press "No" on this message

You will be getting a system restore window. Follow the instruction for restore the windows to a date when the system was working fine,
After restore Reboot in normal mode

Cannot start up the laptop


Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Toshiba satellite laptop comes on and stays at windows xp page


If Safe Mode doesnt work then you may have to do a "repair" of your O/S. Place your Windows XP CD into the CD-Rom drive, reboot and once you see the options if you want to Install or Repair - choose Repair. This option will make repair to your O/S and for safe mode.
Once repair is complete do a complete Anti-Virus and Spyware scan of your Hard Drive. If you can boot into Safe Mode to run the ani-virus much better.
