Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, my very young niece has a phillips feevents x50 laptop , it now won't load windows xp home edition , it just restarts over and over to safe mode option screen , I have disabled auto restart and got bluescreen error 0x00000050 caused by file scsiport.sys. I have tried booting in safe mode but which ever option I do same happens, I have tried going into the bios and changing to boot from disc by inserting a. New windows disc but I only have a copy of the professional version. It accepts the disk and starts to install files for a couple of minutes then it goes to another bluescreen stop code 0x000000d1. Acpi.sys. Driver irql not less than equal, we don't have any back updisks for this laptop it was a hand me down, but I would really like to get it going again for my neice as I just don't jave the cash to get her a new one , any advise would be greatly appreciated

The blue screen is called a blue screen of death (abbreviated BS or BSOD), and is a notorious phenomenon when using Windows.It can mean that a key piece of hardware (memory or hard drive) is failing on your computer, or it can mean that one of the drivers (piece of software) that allows a piece of your hardware to work has a bug, or is corrupted.If you just installed a new piece of hardware, then physically unplug that hardware and try again.If one of the options you are presented with is "last known good configuration," then make sure you try that option.If that doesn't help, you can try removing hardware one piece at a time, and try booting the computer in between each removal. There is probably a screw on the bottom of the laptop will allow you to remove the optical drive. If the computer still does a BSOD with the optical drive removed, then it is not causing the problem, so go ahead & put it back. If the memory is installed in 2 separate sticks, you can try booting with first just one, and then just the other (this tests to see if one of the sticks of memory is failing). If one of the memory sticks is bad, you can buy a new one at www.crucial.com. It shouldn't cost much on a laptop this old.Apparently, there is something called a USB Digital Drive on the left-hand side of this computer, but there may just be a floppy drive there. See if you can figure out how to remove this. If it is causing the BSOD, your computer may start after removing it. If no difference, put it back.
If none of that works, it could easily be your hard drive. As old as this computer is, one would expect the hard drive to fail at any time. If you still have the Windows installation disks, you can buy a new hard drive for less than $50, and reinstall windows. You are going to need a 2.5" IDE ATA hard drive (not SATA) anything that is 2.5 IDE ATA, larger than 10 GB, and not SATA should work. If you reinstall windows and it still does a BSOD, then the problem is caused by a piece of hardware that is not removable, which means get a new computer.

Boot to the WIndows XP CD (Press spacebar when prompted to press any key) at first prompt in setup, press R to enter recover console.
At the C:\Windows\System32\> prompt type bootcfg /rebuild then press enter
reboot see if error resolved.
If not then try running diagnostics by pressing Fn plus power button, see if there is a HDD malfunction

The windows files have been corrupted, I was hoping you might get into safe mode to try a system restore but your system will not allow it. If you can find your recovery disc a clean install is the best way to go. Try www.toshiba.com contact customer support about a replacement recovery disc.
