If you want to fix blue screen problems yourself I recommend using a program from spotmau. They have software you can boot from which will fix most startup problems. I also recommend booting in safe mode with networking first and scanning your PC with Avira antivirus. Or you could go the easy way and hire someone locally which should fix your problem for no more than $50. Good site to check out www.oncallers.com

To make things much much easier and if you are somewhat computer literate. Download this- http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd It includes many many programs/tools for fixing, recovering and running diagnostics on a hard disk or finding the problem. It also has a small live boot version of Windows XP to make things much easier so that you do not have to use bios to navigate. Feel free to inquire back for more information. Good luck.

I have a Toshiba Satellite U505 pc laptop that was working earlier today. I was in the middle of showing a video to a friend when it just shut down. I turned it on again and the Toshiba screen showed up...


If that was a video over the internet you may have downloaded a smart virus. ( ie/ tricks the computer in thinking it is safe ). Shut the computer down and restart it in safe mode. F8 or F11 while it is booting up, ( I could never remember! ). Close all residual tabs/web locations and all other programs. Go to the START icon and restart in normal mode. Me thinks that should do it for you.

When i go to start it up, it shows the Windows XP loading screen, then a black then blue screen flash for less than a 1/2 second.


It's called a BSOD which means blue screen of death. try to boot into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as the computer starts hit it repeatedly, then try last known configuration that worked. If that doesn't work, reboot and try F8 again and go to safe mode, then do a system restore.

Toshiba satellite L25-s1194 wont boot windows


Is it giving you any error or out of the ordinary "beeping" as it is booting?
Usually the BIOS screen comes up if it cannot find an acceptable boot device.
Can you boot from an XP cd?
Can you boot into set up mode.. usually by pressing F1 or F2 on most computers. It should tell you just before the BIOS screen comes up. Enter into "set up" and make sure your boot order is correct.
You might want to reseat your RAM.
Check to see if the hard drive is coming on.

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.

Windows wont boot up when I turn on my Toshiba


You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.

Toshiba satellite laptop comes on and stays at windows xp page


If Safe Mode doesnt work then you may have to do a "repair" of your O/S. Place your Windows XP CD into the CD-Rom drive, reboot and once you see the options if you want to Install or Repair - choose Repair. This option will make repair to your O/S and for safe mode.
Once repair is complete do a complete Anti-Virus and Spyware scan of your Hard Drive. If you can boot into Safe Mode to run the ani-virus much better.
