Question about Computers & Internet

Toshiba Laptop is having trouble booting up.

My Toshiba keeps sending me to a Windows Error Recovery screen when it tries to boot. It recommends me to choose the "Launch Startup Repair" option. After Startup Repair it seems to load the desktop okay but only lasts for a short time, and then gives me a blue screen and shuts down. It is also making a weird 'rattle' noise sometimes off and on. I am using Vista.

I have two theories on that one is that the memory might have been loose or the bios have some problems try optiion 1 then switch to the second one but first you'll need to download the bios software to the toshiba website

Sounds like you need to run the recovery disk

If your have the Recovery Disk put it in and boot from cd/dvd,
[Push "F12" at the Toshiba boot screen to access the Boot Menu]

you will loss all your info,,

to save your info [pic's] you will need to plug your hard drive into a desktop with sata.. and back up you info that way then run the disk


if you dont have the disk you will need to get a new windows 7 dvd or contact toshiba for a new Recovery Disk set,

Some times they put the Recovery on the hard drive but i think you need the disk with this one.

My laptop keeps restarting all the time after i turn it on it only say TOSHIBA pres F2 for the boot and thats it. my laptop is TOSHIBA portege 7200


It seems to be a hard drive failure.
Your laptop can not see the boot files.
Try to repair windows using recovery disc or to reinstal a fresh copy of windows.
if you are installing a fresh copy and you will get a error message like no hard disk found.. try to check hard disk.

My toshiba L300 keeps goin to a blue screen during use, how do I stop the error


For that you need recovery disk.
Put that disk in cd/dvd rom.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot option then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with that recovery disk then follow the procedure and choose "R" for recovery console then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
then press "y
then it fix error on harddisk.
Then check if still same blue screen then you have to repair your windows.For again boot with disk then repair your old windows.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

See let me talk with you from experience...

The only thing that can be done is system restore to factory default and remember to backup your documents.

This is the only way to resolve the problem you are going through.

Most likely the boot sector is corrupt.Try to boot by starting the Computer and hitting F8, or F12 you need to get to your start windows splash screen.Then try Start Windows from Last Known Good Configuration.If that don't work try Safe Mode.If none work you will need to recreate your .boot file, or try recovery fron CD.It gets complicated explaining how to rebuild your boot sector,If you have access to internet search "how to rebuild boot sector Windows XP".There are programs you can download and then load/run to rebuild boot.This has happened to me or someone I know and it is a pain to fix.You need some knowledge of how boot loads and how to repair.Try to get someone you know to help you.The problem was caused by the shut down.I think you ment XP can't Boot.Good Luck

So to install HDD recovery, please do as follow:
  • Start your notebook after the bios screen press F8 to enter “Advanced boot options” (if you get the timing wrong, just restart and keep pressing F8)
  • Choose the first offered option “Repair my Computer” to enter Vista “System Recovery Options”
  • Choose the last option – Toshiba recovery option
  • Follow the menu on the screen

Please note that whole HDD will be deleted and if you have some important data please back it up

When I turn my Toshiba Satellite A75 on, after the logo disappears I get the error code "press any key to reboot" however the laptop will not reboot no matter how many times I press a key.


If your laptop has a recovery partition, boot from the recovery partition and repair windows. If not, attempt to obtain Windows recovery disks or a fresh copy of Windows to install on your laptop and reformat the Hard-Drive. When formatting a hard drive for windows, NTFS is the standard and recommended format.
