Hi,

Sounds like corruption in the registry. Have you tried booting in safe mode? Try hitting the F8 key on boot and see if you can get it to boot in safe mode.

Cheers,
Ripface.

Toshiba laptop restarting


The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


Hope this helps

It is probably the DDR memory...You may need to replace it with new one.

Acer 5733z-4633 is stuck in a sort of boot loop. Won't enter bois setup or boot device options screen. Is this a hard drive issue?(it kinda makes a funny clicking noise then starts all over to try


Yes! it does sound like the hard drive is bad, remove hardware to see if you can enter bios and boot device, if yes the hard drive needs to be replaced, if no change there is a secondary problem.

Garmin 1340T boot loop issue. The unit


Hi,

Unfortunately, there isn't an easy solution for the Nuvi owner as it requires a custom piece of firmware to flash the unit to make it at least boot. This problem is often caused during a failed firmware and/or map update.

It sounds like a file was corrupted. Sometimes it is better to connect the unit up to a PC, delete the old map and then proceed to install the new one. There are so many issues with memory space causing failed downloads and corrupted files.

If the map file is missing, the unit will boot-up OK, it will just say "Map data unavailable" but if the map file or associated map files are corrupted, it can cause the unit to crash. Your PC won't recognize the Nuvi because you have the reach the main screen before the data communication mode routines are accessed.

We've had some success in restoring some of these units by flashing a "fix" firmware in "pre-boot mode" that doesn't try to load the map or map associated files. This should then allow the unit to boot. Once the unit boots, Windows will recognize it and then you can copy a map over to it from the PC. Reboot the unit and then flash it with the standard firmware.

Hp nx6110, stays in a boot-up loop


Hi, If you are sure that it's not overheating, then it could be the hard drive.
A boot up loop is an indication that the boot up sector on the hard drive is corrupt and broken. The hard drive tries to find this boot sector to boot up your computer but it can't. It keeps trying to find it again and again and again and keeps looping. Hank

I've been building computers since 1992. Never saw this. My EVGA MB is in a BIOS loop. Boot .. beep .. EVGA Splash ... -Reboot automatically- Beep ... EVGA Spash ... -Reboot automatically. It's like a...


Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.

Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".

Will not boot


With limited information, this could be many things, however, I can try to explain what is happening. The computer runs several tests before it boots. This process is called POST (power on self test). During POST, all critical systems are analyzed, albeit a short test. When the system comes to something that does not pass the test, it usually puts up a warning allowing you to either continue or shut down and fix it. Sometimes, it comes to a test that creates a "loop" of instructions for the computer. When a loop happens, the computer does the same thing over and over and cannot stop. A loop can occur during POST if an instruction is not followed correctly. The most common cause for this in your type of computer is a problem with either the boot sector on the hard drive or the hard drive itself. Try disconnecting the hard drive and boot to a floppy or a cd. If the computer boots, you know where your trouble is. If on the other hand, with the hard drive disconnected and the same problem occurs, change your memory to fix the problem. Good luck tony
