Question about Toshiba Satellite A35-S159 Notebook

Cannot start up

When I turn on my Toshiba Laptop, no matter mode I start it up in (Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt Last Known Good Configuration and Normally) it won't load past the Microsoft Windows XP point, a Blue screen appears and disappears once in a split second. Top left message on blue screen says: STOP:c0000218{Registry File Failure} the registry cannot load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate. And a few other lines. Comp worked fine until this happened. How do I fix this? Thanks, Matt

    To clarify the problem - this is on a Toshiba Satellite A35-S159 laptop. Once the blue screen appears it quickly goes away and a screen pops up stating an error occured and Windows could not startup properly, then i have the options to Start Windows, Start Windows using setup from last successful startup, Safe mode..etc and other listed in intial posting. Selecting any option brings me to blue screen again and right back to this selection screen.

    My Windows disk is in another location and i will not be able to retreive for a week. In the mean time, any other suggestions?

My acer mini laptop is bringing up a menu with safe mode and safe mode with networking and safe mode with command prompt and it won't bring up my home screen no matter what i do i need help how do i fix it


If it brings you to this screen it should also have an option to start up with the last known configuration that worked. Have you tried this? The only other thing I can think of is to boot up into Safe Mode with Networking, which will allow you to still go online, and run Windows Update. Install everything it tells you to, except language packs, and see if that helps. What Operating System do you have?

Good Luck,
