    something has happened to cause this

    i think the best thing for you to do if you can't even get into safemode is format

    DEKR Feb 01, 2009

    can you restart and try last known good

    or safemode by constantly pressing f8 during restart

    your going to need to get on to use the recovery

    without a cd

    if you abolutely cannot get on let me know

    did you upgrade to vista from xp

    and yes if this pc came with vista should have recovery icon

    possibly in my computer

    or open my computer then c:\ drive there should be a folder with your laptop type such as/toshiba,acer etc

    open and you will find a recovery icon

  • DEKR
    DEKR Feb 02, 2009

    yes probably a virus

    or tried to run vista on a system made for xp

    is there anyone he can borrow a cd from

    what is the original operating system vista or xp

  • DEKR
    DEKR Feb 02, 2009

    yes should be able to use your vista to reinstall

    does he have his own product key #




    will ask to delete selected choose option yes or d to delete

    then will ask to confirm then it will choose another selection to install follow instructions he does'nt want to install third party or raid.

    It's pretty basic if you read and follow instructions

Brand new samsung notebook rv515 wont start up. start up repair keeps coming up

You can try getting to your boot menu to bypass this section of the startup, but you will probably be better off exchanging it for another one. You may have accidentally received a refurbished computer, or the computer didn't power down correctly after testing.

Toshiba laptop restarting

The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.

This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.

You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.

Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.

Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.

Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.

Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.

Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.

Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.

Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.

Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.

Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.

Hope this helps

Laptop keeps restarting and each time the login screen appears, suddenly a blue screen pops up, the machine keeps restarting automatically and i can't access windows!

It looks like the window files are corrupt or the hard drive is in trouble. Remove hardware and reseat it back into place. If no! try reloading your operational windows if available, if no result! hard drive should be assessed for a replacement.

Computer restarted during restore while trying to install windows 7 now wont work. An error pops up saying...... The computer restarted unexpecttedly or encountered an unexpected error. To install windows...

hi Mike.
this is all i could find.
Try the following...

1. Power off the laptop.
2. Power on the laptop.
3. As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
4. Repeat this process a few times until you see the "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen.
5. Now you want to let the laptop boot to the "Automatic Repair" screen.
6. Click "Advanced Options" and then select "Troubleshoot".
7. Here you want to select "Refresh your PC", if you do not wish to erase data, or "Reset your PC" to erase all data and restore your system.
8. From here just follow the screen instructions until the recovery is completed.

NOTE: You will need to get into the "Advanced Options" in order to get the "Refresh Option". This choice will keep your data, but any programs installed will be lost.

Do not do a "Reset" as that will wipe all data you have on the laptop.
or go to this link and read up in the forum might help.
