If you have more than one memory, try to remove one and install XP. If the first memory that you used gives you same result, try to remove and use the 2nd memory.

    If you only have on memory try to clean the connector of the memory using a pencil eraser. Then try to run the Xp instalation again.

'' a problem has been detected and windows has shutdown to prevent damage''


From the description it is the hard drive that is the problem, format the whole hardware and re-install your xp windows to see if that will clear up the problem, if not! have the hard drive tested to see if it must be replaced.

Screen goes black after windows XP logo, then no response.


I would suggest checking your hard drive to see whether or not it has a bad sector on it.

Won't boot


The error means that the computer is not seeing the hard drive.Hit F10 to get into BIOS and check that your hard drive is showing . If it is hit ESC and tell it to save settings. Then restart the PC.

If your hard drive does not show in BIOS, there is something wrong with it. It may be co-incidental that canceling the scan caused your hard drive to fail.

You can try to do an XP repair. Boot your XP cd:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstall the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Looks like you need to reinstall windows. get a windos setup disk and reinstall it. If it does not install cause windows setup cannot detect your c drive, then you may need to change the hd as well

first try reinstalling windows

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair


Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on http://support.toshiba.com

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck
