Re: Tosiba laptop could not start not even with safe...
The error message refer to system files it cannot load dur to either corrupted or missing files.
You can try to do a repair with your Windows CD install disk and if this does not work you will need to reinstall Windows again together with any drivers that Windows didn't install and your programs.
Note you will lose you data in this process, hoped you backed up your files.

The BOOT.INI file may be corrupt. Boot to a command prompt and rename original file c:\ren boot.ini boot.tmp. Now type edit. and insert the following script.
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
Save as boot.ini. Alt key gives you the menu options You can also create the file elsewhere and copy to c:\ Remember to rename original. Note! This is a single partition standard from factory configuration.
So far I see no problem. For some reason. you chose to boot Windows in safe mode. During that boot mode, the screen goes black and starts displaying lines of text detailling all the drivers it is loading. At the end of the process Windows will run in safe mode. Try rebooting normally or rebooting to the last good configuration that worked. If there are problems please be more specific.
You will have to put a Windows DVD in and boot on that and do a "Repair" install, if that will not work, you will have to do a complete format and reinstall Windows. But try the below first if you can. 1. Restart the computer.
2. Repeatedly tap the F8 key until you see the Advanced Boot Option Screen.
3. Select Repair Your Computerand hit Enter.
4. Select your country >> OK.
5. On the System Recovery Options Screen select Restore Application.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
8. When prompted, select on "Full Factory Recovery"
9. Select Next >> Yes.
10. After a couple of minutes the recovery will be completed.Check to see if your PC will perform a Factory reinstall from a "Recovery partition" usually accessed via CTRL F10, or just F10 or F12 Check your manual, as if this is available it will restore your PC to a "From the factory state" BTW, your hard drive may be ruined you may need to get a new one. Then reinstall Windows from DVD.
if you are using windows xp, then follow these steps: 1) right click "my computer" icon, select "advanced" tab, click settings button towards the right of "start up and recovery" and click "edit" tab a notepad window appears with some text in it which reads something like this :
[boot loader] timeout=0 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT
modify that text to look like this: [boot loader] timeout=0 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /3GB /userva=2800 /NoExecute=Op
Warning : only the "/3GB /userva=2800 /NoExecute=Op" has to be added extra else you will mess up
2) save the notepad and insert max ram, and check, if any BSOD's if the problem persists, then it is hardware related.. Most probably one of your ram stick may be the problem child(which may be either incompatible with your motherboard or defective)
what are the things that you added recently, hardware(additional hdd, memory, video card) or software (antivirus, office, etc games.) try running a hard drive diagnostics, usually computer manufacturer install a hdd diagnostics on their BIOS that you can run. hit me back on the results.
I would suggest using the Windows Disk, if you have one, go through normal windows installation. At the point of installation just after pressing F8 it will detect windows exists and offer you a repair option press R to repair
