It sounds like a driver is causing the problem or a new software install, turn the PC on and when you hear the beep press the F8 key, you should get a start menu, select safe mode, if this gets you in use system restore to take it back to a date it worked.
On a Windows Visa or Windows 7, you can re-enable your wireless card by doing the following.
Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center. Then click Change Adapter Settings which should be in the top-left corner of the window. Once there, you should see your wireless card which you can right click and select Enable to power up again.
As you have indicated, the problem occurs just after installation of XP and the Toshiba hardware drivers.
From past history, the most likely device would be the wireless driver, and then maybe the audio or graphics driver.
Reboot your computer and press the F8 key, when the boot selection screen appears, select Safe Mode. Many device drivers will not be loaded in this mode. If the blue screen does not come up, then go to device manager and disable the wrieless device and reboot normally. If no problems, you should go to the link I have provided below by copying and pasteing into your web browser to the support page for your Toshiba model laptop. Select your wirless device driver for your XP operating system, download and and install, then reboot. Your may have to do this for other hardware as normally this is a primary cause of the system shutdowns.
Remove the hard drive this is very easy. Connect to another pc running xp using a USB caddie. On the notino drive check the windows directory. If you that there are no files only folders then copy explorer.exe to the windows directory. Restore HDD to Notino. Recovery using F7 should work now. This is because the Higrade recovery uses the file explore.exe to validate the destination drive for recovery ( even if file explorer.exe is blank file) This can also be done without removing the HDD. When you get to the screen with the two GREEN pointers move it aside and you will see a dos prompt. Copy explorer.exe from a USB memory stick to D:\windows\ the usb stick should be drive G: Then reboot. It works honestly good luck Switcher
The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSOD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is an error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down, to prevent damage.
Bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens.
Bluescreens can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory,
power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running
beyond its specification limits. Bluescreens have been present in all
Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1; earlier, OS/2 and MS-DOS suffered the Black Screen of Death, and early builds of Windows Vista displayed the Red Screen of Death after a boot loader error.
you have a corrupt driver, try a system restore to a day before this happened as you may have updated a driver which is not compatible from microsoft with automatic updates, or it's because of software that has recently been installed
A stop error occurs when Windows XP Professional stops responding. Stop error messages can be caused by hardware or software malfunctions. The error messages appear on a blue or black background. The following steps, which also appear on the stop error screen, help you find out the cause of a stop error and how to fix the problem.
To troubleshoot General Stop Errors:
1. Restart your PC. Unplug each new hardware device, one at a time, to see if this resolves the error. Try to run any hardware diagnostic software supplied by your computer manufacturer.
2. If this is a new installation of hardware or software, contact the manufacturer for any Windows XP Professional updates or drivers you might need. Click Get support, or find information in Windows XP newsgroups (under "Ask for assistance") and then click Get help from Microsoft in the left-hand column.
3. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) to verify that all your hardware and drivers are compatible with Windows XP Professional.
4. If you can start Windows XP Professional, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help identify the device or driver causing the problem.
5. If you cant start Windows XP Professional, try to start your computer in safe mode, and then remove or disable any newly added programs or drivers.
6. Search the Microsoft Knowledge Base for "Windows XP Professional" and the number associated with the stop error you received. Specific Stop Errors Some stop errors display descriptive messages such as "DATA_BUS_ERROR" that can help you determine the exact solution for the error. This section discusses how to troubleshoot specific stop errors, based on the type of error you receive.
