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

Can I use the Hitachi Deskstar P7K500 HDP725025GLAT80 - 0A35390-20PK 250 GB Hard Drive as a secondary hard drive if I dont have the boot disk for it? If so, how do I go about setting it up? I'v tried...

You actually don't need a boot disk for this particular problem. What the computer is telling you with that particular error message is that it is not detecting any kind of operating system on the hard drive it is trying to start from.

If you installed this alongside your current hard drive, it's likely that the boot order is incorrect in the BIOS, and it's trying to load from the blank Hitachi hard drive. Here are the steps to figure it out:

1) Restart the computer.

2) As soon as you do, start pressing the F1, F2 and Del keys repeatedly until the lights on the keyboard flash. (If this doesn't work, there should be a message on the screen that says something like F12 - Menu or something, and you should press that key instead. In 90% of cases it will be either F1, F2 or Del.) This should bring you into a blue text-like screen. This is the computer's BIOS. You will not be able to navigate with the mouse.

3) Using the arrow keys, look through the menus for a Boot Devices, Boot Options or Boot Device Order menu. The location and name of this menu will vary widely based on your computer's motherboard.

4) Once you have located the Boot Options menu, there should be a list of devices. Follow the on-screen instructions to order them as follows: #1 CD/DVD drive, #2 Your regular hard drive, #3 Hitachi Deskstar. Anything else can just go below that if there are more than 3 options.

5) Navigate to the Save and Exit option in the BIOS screen and tell it that you want to save changes, if prompted.

The computer should now restart and access your normal hard drive to boot your computer's operating system, with the Hitachi as a secondary drive. Once you get into the OS, you will need to partition and format the hard drive in order to use the space.

Hope this is helpful!

Shut your computer all the way down. As soon as you turn it on, start hitting F8 about 3-4 times, that will take you to an advanced options menu. Select "Last known good configuration" and that should work
