Re: error 437

Hi, I did a Google on your error 437 and it would seem that this problem pops up only if: 1. using SYMANTEC (Ghost); or 2. using Original Toshiba Restore Disc. where possibly: a. the restoration procedure needs to write a log file somewhere (A:?) which does not exist and therefore waits; b. the restore disc is probably corrupted; and/or c. the Ghost image is corrupted. A few things you can try: * On another computer, check the integrity of your recovery disc; * Get hold of another Windows installer and do a complete, clean, fresh install (you will have to use your original Win numbers @ the bottom of your laptop). You will only need the recovery disc for your hardware drivers; or * Call Toshiba Support and get assistance. I was made to understand that they provide replacement Recovery Disc (>50USD). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Im haveing unexpected shut downs on my laptop? and i can onl use it in safe mode. how do i fix it to regular mode with oout it shuting down again?

When you boot it up that same screen that gives you the safe mode option will probably give you an option to disable or stop restarts on boot. This will allow you to see the error message. Since you can get into safe mode try doing a System Restore to a day before the problem started. System restore does not destroy your data, docs, music, pics, or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the system back to when you first purchased it. If system restore does not work you'll need a system disc to fix the blue screen by running a chkdsk /r command at the dos command line prompt. Chkdsk will run for an hour or more so be patient. If chkdsk doesn't solve it then you probably have a memory issue. I would remove one memory chip and reboot, the if you have a problem move the chip that is inside to the next slot and reboot again. If if fails on both slots for that chip, set it aside and insert the other chip and do the same thing.

What have you gone through in the setup option? Have you tried the safe mode?

Go into safe mode and restore your system settings. Go to the Start menu, All Programs, Accessories, and System Tools, then System Restore. go through the wizard and pick a point in time before your computer crashed.

If you have any other problems, let me know.

Problem with a disk read error

There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.
