    I would recommended a recovery or a fresh installation of vista. Did you upgrade to vista or the computer came with vista? The answer is necessary to determine if oyur system can run vista.

How long did you wait? Some software, especially Microsoft, tells you to wait and then seems to do nothing for maybe half an hour. It is actually working in the background in Ram etc.. It maybe that you were sent a Microsoft update over the web and that is what it is working on.Try it again and leave it sitting there overnight. If that fails then the final resort might be to do a re-install of the software.

Last resort!

Note: You will lose all information on your laptop unless you can slave the hard drive to a friends computer and retrieve before continuing.

Restart computer and press F4 at startup (Dell spash screen). Choose advanced option. Do a factory restore. This will reset the computer back to the way you purchased it.

Windows is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled. This is usually caused by a virus or software issues.

Hope this helps!

My toshiba laptop satellite A55-S326 wont boot. Only can use the escape key then go into bios but still doesn't boot. Tried my recovery disc & it goes thru the instal but then still goes to a blank...


Your install discs are bad. Please don't shoot the messenger. Call Toshiba for new discs. Here is the number (it took me 30 minutes to find this. Please give me a 4-thumbs-up rating. If you don't, I spent time away from family for free).
(800) 457-7777 (toll-free)

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.


Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!

Freezing up


I think you need to do a power cycle. remove the battery and use tha AC adapter alone. If it boots, then thats good. U can try also booting on safe mode by pressing F8. Then re start the notebook in normal mode. If it wont works then i think u need to reinstall windows as a last resort. U need to use TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK this time.
