Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
When I turn on the laptop windows fails to start. If I wait long enough, windows boot manager appears and says : windows failed to start...to fix the problem: 1. insert windows installation disc and restart your computer and then click 'repair your computer'.
I insert the disc, restart the computer, but nothing happens.
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.
