No operating system loaded-toshiba equium m50 244

My computer switches on, but fails to load the operating system. Before this happened, it would crash frequently quoting an atisdva file or something like that for the error. What I would like to know is: has my hard disk failed completely and whether I should buy and install a new one?

Hard drive crash, drive defects in the area where the O/S is, or, corrupted O/S files.

Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic software and run it. It will examine your drive and give you an evaluation.

If it tells you the drive is fine, the either a complete reload, or a repair will get you back up and running. Whether you will be able to recover any of your data, will depend on the drive condition.

How bring up in safe mode with windows 8.1 for toshiba a665-56086?

1. Restart you rcomputer and press F8 or Shift+F8 before Windows starts loading. Sometimes this method doesn't work because Windows 8 loads too fast (eg. if you have SSD).

2. If first method fails, try this. Click with your mouse the Power button (on the screen, not on the computer), press and hold Shift key and select Restart. A new scrren will appear. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart. Your computer will restart and will ask you to choose 1 of the 9 startup settings including Safe mode.

I have rebooted toshiba computer and it is asking for new admin password but gives me no where to type one I.

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

restart back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time
click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option

hope this helps

On booting my Toshiba Equium U300-15i laptop reaches the login screen it keeps shutting off and is not stable, I have tried cleaning registry, ran , WinUtilities and also System Mechanic Professional but...

Give it a try.

Try booting your system into safe mode and if it boots in the safe mode successfully then its sure that there is something wrong with OS and nothing wrong with the hardware and you can try some fixes like restoring your system to a previous instance.

In extreme case if nothing works then at last you can try reinstalling the OS and that might solves the problem but in case that also failed then there can some reasons for it :

Some times it happens due malfunctioning of RAM
Some times BIOS is also the issue.

It happened with me also once and i diagnosed the system and found that one of my RAMs was malfunctioning.
If it is a hardware issue then in that you need to contact customer service support for your product to get it fixed.

Thanks !!

You have Malware or Spyware. If you can load your destop, download and run and If you can't load your desktop, download (including updates) from another computer and run on your desktop. Good luck.
