To check if the hard disk is faulty, check the BIOS setting to see if the hard disk is detected. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic utility, if so run the diagnostic.
Another way to check the hard disk. Remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter, then plug it into a working computer's USB port. The computer should detect it as an external hard drive and if you can see, open the folders and files then the hard drive is OK, if not then you need a new hard drive for your laptop.

Toshiba stuck on start-up screen.


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.

Was working fine.... power whent out at house.... upon startup after that it would say windows is loading files..... then the windows bar with moving light along bottom then..... mouse on blank background...


Try booting it into safe mode by intercepting the boot up when the first screen comes up by hitting either F8 or F2, depending on your system. If you can't get in to windows this way, insert the cd that came with the computer, or a windows cd, and enter in to recovery mode. If you have the option to do a system restore, try that, you will not lose any file this way. If you can't do any of the above options, then a full system recovery is your only option. Do a google search for any errors or error messages that are popping up to specifically target what is happening with your system.

My Acer Aspire won't boot up past the Window's Loading bar


Log in to safe mode by pressing F8 during startup, if you see windows loading you have missed your window to push the F8 key. When the options menu comes up choose safe mode.
While in safe mode if it loads, click Start > Computer (My Computer) > right click on your ‘C’ drive and click properties > click the ‘tools’ tab > click the ‘Check Now’ button under ‘Error-checking’ > make sure the options ‘Automatically fix…’; and ‘Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors’ is checked. A dialogue box will come up stating “windows cannot check the disk”, just click the ‘Schedule disk check’ button and restart your computer. When the computer starts up a check disk will start, let it run. you might want to go do something as the check disk may take up to and sometimes longer than an hour.
Let me know if that helped, and please rate me after, thank you.
