    Thank you for the response! But I have one more question, I really need to know if everything I had on my hard drive will be lost? I had important documents and even more so pictures I did not get developed on paper of my father who passed away last year, are these going to be lost ? is there anyway I can retrieve these?? Thats what I am more concerned about is the lost data. Thank you again so much for your feedback and help.

Can you tell me if your operating system is Windows XP. when it shows the windows screen is it the "boot up screen" showing and returns to the same thing?

    You need the Windows XP installation disk place it in the CD and restart the machine.
    It will boot up so allow it to go through the motion as if to install go right through until it cannot go any further press "R" for console select 1 c:\windows then type chkdsk /p windows will fix itself dont forget to remove the disk after it finishes you should be up and running. Im sorry I was a bit late I have just woken and its five in the morning down here.

I shut down my Toshiba Satelite L500 and went to reboot. The Toshiba logo flashes quickly and then goes blank. It is not booting or restarting.


I believe your computer is corrupted and need to be repair or reformat.

But first solution to run your computer on safe mode if repair the problem. When restarting your computer, just press F8 when booting and it should display some repair menu. Choose safe mode to run your computer on safe mode. Maybe it help you.

If not you need to reformat your computer or repair the operating system.

Good Luck

Got a Acer 5420 that won't boot

First before replaceing the drive try to start in safe mode, if you can start it in safe mode do so with network support and go to malyware bytes and download their software to remove the bugs you have on the computer run disk cleanup and disk defragment as well, this is caused by some of the bugs that have come out. If it indeed is the drive out your in trouble if you have not backed it up, but post here to let me know and I will help you if I can, also please rate me if this helped.
