If it's reading the hard drive first, as it would appear it is, you need to enter the BIOS and change the order of boot devices so that it looks at the CD Rom first. Your user manual should tell you how to do this, but feel free to leave a followup comment if you want me to go over it.

It's expecting to see the CD to repair windows, but then isn't looking at the CD Rom drive first, with the result that it tries to boot straight from the hard drive and ends up in an unbreakable loop.

Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4


The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Windows boot manager


Hit F8 a few times while your computer starts to boot, a boot selection screen should come up. Try selecting "Last Known Good Configuration" and see if you can boot up without running the repair install.

Creating recovery discs After setting up the computer for the first time, be sure to create a set of recovery discs of the full factory image. the recovery discs are used to start up (boot) the computer and recover the operating system and software to factory settings in case of system instability or failure.

Toshiba Satellite M35x-S1142 Turn off problem


Was something new installed. It's failing during the driver load. You can quick fix it, maybe, by booting and pressing the F8 key, then selecting Last Good Configuration (words of that effect). If that does not work, boot with F8 and trace each driver as it loads. The one it stops on is the one you want to deal with. Boot in Safe Mode again and try to fix the problem. Do you have anything showing up under the Question Mark in device drivers? You may need to deal with the problem on that level also. Cheers.
