Toshiba satellite is stuck safe mode it's running Windows XP.I tried restart f8 start normal a black screen with bunch stuf& starts in safe mode. What's wrong how can I get it out of safe mode?


First you should really consider upgrading from Windows XP because it is no longer supported and the chances of your computer becoming infected are extremely high.

Pressing the F8 command will only access Windows RE where you can access startup repair safe mode etc.

If the computer is only allowing you to go into safe mode that is a good sign that something is severely wrong with your OS.

While in safe mode you should try and access system restore, but this will only work if 1) you have turned on system restore and 2) your system has a restore point to access.

Have you added any new hardware or programs to the computer? If yes, then the new addition may be the cause of this issue. You can use device manager to rollback any changes or access programs and features to delete any program changes.

Other then that, if none of the above suggestions work I would strongly suggest booting from the disk media to access Windows RE too recovery the computer or just to re-image the computer.

Hope that helps.

Toshiba satellite L675 freezes after startup. Windows &


Boot the computer into "Safe Mode".

To boot PC into Safe Mode follow these steps:

1. Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
2. Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
3. Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected, not Repair Your Computer
4. Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
5. When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would

If the computer boots into Safe Mode you can try disabling Startup Programs, one of these might be causing your computer to freeze. To do this follow these steps:

1 Press Start. Type msconfig into the search bar and press Enter. For XP, click on Run and type msconfig there.

Toshiba A135-S4467 runs in safe mode but not normal (Vista)


Hi there,
The fact it starts in safe mode (which means it loads the basics for the pc to run and thats it) would indicate to me that there is something running in the backround at normal boot and also your cpu has a panic attack. Just wondering did this pc come with this version of windows or is it one you downloaded and installed yourself?? If its one you downloaded yourself (which it sounds like) get rid of it, because it is probs corrupted. Get another copy of it or to be quite honest I would get windows 7. Its better ,faster, and a lot less **** runs on it...The fact you changed your hard drive and still have the same problem it sounds like the copy of windows you have...Hope this helps...

Hibernation partition


What OS? xp? 98?
Have you tried loading last known good configuration?
What is the "whole process"?
Please report the exact error message you are getting, along with any stop error codes, and describe in a little more detail what's bringing it on, whether it's freezing up, etc.
If you're using xp, take a look at the event viewer logs to see what kind of errors or warnings are reported.
In the meantime, please take a look at MS KB articles here, here, here, here, here, and possibly here to see if they apply to your situation.
Try disabling hibernation, rebooting, then restarting. (control panel>power options)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Blue screen on my laptop, not able to load another window


reinstall windows - run your recovery disks, or boot from the recovery partition. If it still happens, there's probably a hardware issue - could be anything. Call Toshiba if still under warranty...

Problem with Toshiba Laptop U


this is clearly a no boot issue. you can actually do a power cycle first. remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter. press and hold the power button on the computer for 10 secs to drain all power inside the computer. turn on the computer. if it still freezes, tried to boot to safe mode. as soon as you see the Toshiba logo on the screen, start tapping on the F8 button as quick as you can to access Windows Advanced Boot Options. then choose safe mode only. if it doesn't solve the problem then most likely, your Windows XP is already corrupted. try to do system recovery. please be reminded that you will lose all data if you run the recovery.

i hope this helps.
