Question about Toshiba Satellite A55-S326 Notebook

Open Question

Upon turning it on, I have to reset the date and time. Then just before windows finishes loading, it flashes a blue screen and then windows starts reloading. It does this cycle of loading to blue screen over and over until I just turn it off. Any ideas?

SOURCE: when i go to start it up, it shows the Windows XP

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.

SOURCE: cannot start windows or launch

It might be just a software related issue, i suggest you boot into safe mode(tap F8 repeatedly during POST), if you are able to access safe mode without any issue, you can perform a system restore. This will allow the computer go back in time when the issue is not yet present. Hope this helps.

Reset bios


Installing a fresh operating system is a good option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to factory defaults. Information on how to do this:

Windows XP: Dell PC Restore

Using PC Restore:

1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish
starting, and then restart the computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot.

3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.

4. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
completely reboot.

5. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts.

Because the computer is restored to its original
operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License
Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer
was turned on.

6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.

7. After the computer restarts, click OK.

Laptop wont boot to windows, and flashing a blue error screen


Do a system restore/recovery to a date before this issue. Unplug, remove battery, leave battery out during this procedure, plug into AC, Start tapping the F key that will start the restore/recovery page. You didn't give OS or other info. Did you do updates? Add software/hardware? What preceded the issue?

Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.


It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Gateway laptop mx3414-black screen cannot load windows


Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

The word ''Acers'' apperas on the screen and its not loading


if you can find the motherboard battery, remove it and leave it out for around 2 mins, this should reset the CMOS (date,time, settings etc) make sure the laptop battery is out and its not plugged into the mains, the other way is to flash the bios by downloading the latest bios version for you machine providing that it boots to windows, the only other option is to flash via floppy with AC power on!!! NOT RECOMENDED as if it goes wrong your pc will be permanantly dead

good luck
