Tip

Windows startup does not complete.


Hi.
If The BIOS is showing initial splash screen, and completing POST test correctly, but Windows Startup does not complete, and you are in one of the following situations:

  • You get a black screen with a cursor blinking.
  • You get a black screen with test or command prompt.
  • You have a blue screen with a warning message.
  • Windows keep restarting.
  • Windows is freezing.


Any of the condition described must occur before getting to login screen or to Windows desktop, or the problem is other than the one described here.

If you get a message saying Operative system not found you may also be in same situation. Only in that case the disk may also be physically damaged, and you may have lost your data, or disk may need replacement.


The conditions above usually tell us that the Windows system files needed for Startup are corrupted.
Windows cannot load the files anymore and will hang on with the cursor blinking.
When this happens you need to reinstall the operative system.

To start you can try loading the system in safe mode, by pressing F8 on Startup.

If the computer is starting in safe mode, try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started. This will be faster than installing a fresh system, and most of your settings will be preserved.

You may find out that when the system does not load, most computer will not even start in safe mode.

Check also that there is no CD, DVD or floppy inside the computer, also disconnect any connected USB device, apart mouse and keyboard, and attempt starting the computer again.

If all that does not work, then you will need to reinstall Windows.

Installing Windows is not a complicate operation, all you need is the computer recovery disk, or a Windows install disk valid for the licence number printed on the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity sticker.

If you use a recovery disk, remember to choose partial recovery, so that the original data contained in the hard disk won't be deleted.

Using Windows generic disk you will need to choose Update Recovery if asked, install the system on top of the same directory (eg: C:Windows), and you will also need to choose Leave System File Intact, when asked by Windows setup.
Using a Windows generic disk you may also need to install additional drivers, that usually are available for download from the manufacturer website.
Even choosing a partial recovery , or an update install, some of the installed software may be affected, and may need a fresh setup.
Another way to proceed is installing a copy of windows into a different folder (eg. C:/Windows000), and choosing to leave system file untouched.
This will reinstall system files hosted in root folder, and sometimes may bring back to life the old system.
In that case you will be asked what system to start from Windows boot manager on Startup, your old system will be the second one.

Using this method is better to remove the new installation Startup from boot manager after installing and testing that the old system is back at work. This is done editing the system hidden file Startup.Ini, hosted in root folder. The file is a text file.

If you have important data inside the hard disk, it is always advisable to copy all data onto an external media. Even if the procedures described normally do not delete your data, when doing maintenance on a computer there is always the chance to loose data.
If the computer is not starting because of a system problem, the data can only be recovered using a boot disk, or physically removing the hard disk drive from computer, and connecting it to a different computer (an external enclosure may help).


This same instructions broadly apply to all recent Windows operative system, Windows seven setup is slightly different from the procedure described here.

Flashing white dash with black screen


Sounds like your MBR is missing. In the top left corner? Like a blinking cursor? If so it's looking for a DVD/CD to boot from. Try to unplug the machine, wait 30 seconds or so, plug in Try to reboot. If that fails, Do a system restore/recovery at boot using F key. OR ,load Repair disk and reboot from DVD/CD rom.

Did the Restore complete? If not try it again.

If the Restore completed and when you boot the machine all you are getting is a black screen with a blink cursor try the steps below:

Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Toshiba a45 restore problem


Did the drive fail to boot initially and thats why you did a recovery unfortunately the hard drive has either failed and must have a damaged sector,or the recovery partition on the drive is stopping the format, which will more than likely be the problem.

The recovery disc you have won't be a full windows copy only a restore disc for your notebook, and it will look for a backup folder residing on another partition on your drive.

The only way to get a full format is to use a freinds copy of windows to format it and then install windows using your product key code on the underside of your notebook, unless you buy a copy in which case use the code provided
