Toshiba tecra m1 pc.. boot cycle keeps recycling... the windows logo appears then it auto restarts... will not finish loading windows xp same thing happens when i try to boot in safe mode.. any of the...


If it's rebooting when trying to boot into safe mode as well, have you tried "Last Known Good Configuration"? Press F8 like you do to go into Safe Mode, and choose this instead.
If this doesn't work, on the F8 menu, you can disable automatic restart. This will cause Windows to hang instead of automatically rebooting when it encounters an error. With any luck, it will display a STOP error for you. If you get this, comment with the error and I'll be happy to look that up for you.
If this helps, please give a positive rating.

I reboot and The black windows screen works and then a blue screen turns on and just stays there. It says" Microsoft Windows XP


try booting into safe mode:

start up your system and tap on the F8 key.

This may allow you to get into windows and see what the problem is.

click Start-> Run -> type MSCONFIG

in the system configuration window you can disable all startup items and services, restart the PC and see if it works normally.

Then you can turn on a few at a time to find out if something is gumming up your system.

Windows XP installation problem


this is an issue after you reset the hdd there ar eno drivers for raid .and it requires drivers for it ...Probably you defaulted the bios too and now , being a sata hdd it is not seen after loading the files and trying to start the catual installation ...it says there is no hdd..
This can be solved by going to bios settings ..at the advanced settings or main...look for something (on the page where the hdd and cd is detected...) called..AHCI...it is something related with the mode of teh hdd detection ...and disable it if it is enabled..let it on auto..or if it is on auto ..do the other way ..
save changes with the F10 ...restart and will be seen in the installation ...after that remember to go on the support page for the drivers ..for Xp..cause non of the actual for vista will fit..and you will need at least the lan connection first to be able to download the others ..

Hi all , My HP laptop auto shuts down when i open microsoft words , why is this so ? can somebody pls help me ? I need todo some work on it urgently!! , Thanks !!


Hi,

You will need to press the F8 key before windows starts to load then disable
the auto restart on error. That will allow you to read the error message and
someone may be able to guide you.
You could also try booting from the XP CD and run the recovery console (if
that's an option) once in the recovery console type chkdsk /r to correct any
errors & try booting again.

OR

Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should help by
allowing time to write down the STOP code properly. Right click on
the My Computer icon on the Desktop and select Properties, Advanced,
Start-Up and Recovery, System Failure and uncheck box before
Automatically Restart.

Do not re-enable automatic restart on system failure until you have
resolved the problem. Check for variants of the Stop Error message.

An alternative is to keep pressing the F8 key during Start-Up and select
option - Disable automatic restart on system failure.

If you are using a wireless keyboard and the F8 key does not work
substitute a wired keyboard and mouse for this exercise only.

Please prost your feedback.

Hi

First thing to try is to down load the latest drivers for your LAN card, problems like this appear when windows has downloaded a update which is not fully compatible with your hardware driver.

Laptop restarts over and over


Is it Win XP or Vista? hit F8 and see if you can get into Safe Mode, if you can goto start , run and type msconfig, disable all and reboot.

If you cant get into to safe mode, hit F8 when computer turns on and scroll to Last Known Good Configuration. see if lets you in.
If you are running Win XP and none of that works. You will have to run your XP CD and do an OS repair, just load the XP CD at boot when setup starts hit ( Enter F8 then R) let it do its thing. Hope this helps Good Luck.

Cannot install win xp


Hi Phine_24,
I think you've problem with Harddisk.Try to find spare one and install again it should work. Very strange is that if you remove your hardisk out and test externally it should sometime work fine but sometime fail.I think it's a starting sector or some check up that windows or hardware need and it couldn't access it.
goodluck,takecare.
