My toshiba satellite a105-s171 will not boot up. it acts like it is starting but after the windows xp screen a blue screen flashes with white lettering but does not stay long enough to read and then the toshiba screen appears followed by a black screen with white lettering that apologizes for the inconvenience and lists options for safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration and start windows normally. i've tried them all and the computer just keeps recycling to the mode options screen. please help.

You need to do a recovery using the recovery console. There is an option during startup, if you are running XP or later, to press F11 for emergency recovery.

Press F11 and choose the option to recover and backup.

This will backup all files and programs currently installed on your computer.

After the recovery process finishes, you will have to go through the process of setting up your computer, like you did when you first bought it.

After you are all setup again, it is a good idea to create recovery disks under the 'Start' menu, 'Recovery' option.

Is windows 7 compatable on a toshiba laptop a105-s171


From what I understand, windows 7 requires atleast 1 gb of ram to run properly, judging by your standard system specs you have 512 mb of ram. Unless you have added some ram or plan to add some to your system then no I dont believe you will be able to upgrade and run windows 7 efficiently.

Won't boot up, windows won't start successfully


In fact, your computer is restarting by itself after a problem. On Windows 98/2000 the blue screen was sitting there until you rebooted the computer. Windows Xp reboot the computer sometimes even without showing any error message. The thing is, if it reboots even if you select Safe mode, something may be wrong in your hardware (i.e. your memory or hard drive). I would bet on a memory failure but it's hard to be sure unless you boot your computer with a memtest CD, you can find it for free the internet and select your CD as booting device when the computer starts. If you cant do that yourself, you can bring it to a local computer store or anyone with good computer repairing skills. If you need more help with this, let me know

Cannot start up the laptop


Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
