Hello.

Sounds like the Windows Recovery Partition is corrupted or your hard drive may be faulty.

But, first try to boot your system in Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly as it boots) and choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good.

If it still doesn't boot properly, try the diagnostics to determine if a hardware problem - boot your system and press F 12 (or F2) repeatedly.

Hope this helps.

I dont know how to use my recovery disk for my toshiba lap top


Here are the steps on how to install operating system using the recovery disc
- power on the computer and insert the disc - once the disc is inserted, turn off the computer - press the power button then after 2 seconds tap F12 repeatedly - select the cd/dvd option or ODD (optical disc drive) use the up and down arrow keys - press enter - once you see "press any key to boot from CD" press enter right away
it will show " Loading Windows"
- then after the next phase will be set of on screen instructions, you just have to select the right option.

You may have to do a system reformat to reinstall windows on your computer. Put your boot disk into the disk drive on your computer, and restart it. As the computer turns on, press F12 to access the boot menu.

MY lap top qosmio G45-AV680 idoesnt let me operate the windows vista it turns to a black screem but the mouse still there


If you wait longer after boot up windows will eventually recognize the proper card drivers and install them. It is a good sign that you are seeing the mouse. Reboot and wait for at least 30 minutes and repeat process until it finds the proper driver. it should take the most 3-4 times

Gateway desktop xp starts then flashes blue screen for split seco


Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at support.microsoft.com>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.

Answer to your question


You will need to get into the bios, and set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive. Since your in this uncompromising loop, remove the hard drive, then start the machine. It should go to the initial Toshiba screen and you will see the prompt on what to press to get to the bios, or utility set up. Once your in the bios, find the boot order and set the CD drive over the hdd. Then put the hdd back in, the recovery or operating system disc in the CD drive, and start the machine. It should now boot from the disc. At this point you will want to do a system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hdd, and install a new operating system. If the hdd will not format or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hdd has failed and will need replaced. If you need any futher aststance, just ask.

My laptop won't start up and i can't use the recovery media to sort it out.


its sounds either your windows has been currepted or you have some missing driver/software wich cause re-start.
  • Try to boot in safe mode.
  • Start pressing F8 after making on your lap til the boot option menu appears.
  • Select Safe Mode and press enter.
  • If your lap boots well then, goto Start -> Run and type msconfig in the commad box and press enter key.
  • In System Configuration Utility click on Services tab and click Hide All Microsoft Services after that click on disable all. Then press Ok and reboot your lap normally. After do same as above and enable one by one service to get which cause problem.

If it even does not boot in safe mode, then i think you should re-install windows.

Thanks & good luck
