Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a 4 year old Toshiba laptop running XP sp3. When I try to boot it up, it freezes at the blue "Welcome" screen and I have to turn it off by holding the power button. The keyboard works (mouse will move, caps lock will light up), but it goes nowhere, no indication of the C drive working by the led lights. I see no option to try in safe mode using F2 or F12 at startup. Any help would be much appreciated!

Automatic updates just loaded windows xp home sp3. now system will not boot it just keeps cycling blue screen


Try to get into SAFE MODE by hitting F8 as it boots.

There may be a driver that is incompatible with SP3.

If you can get to SAFE MODE, try doing a system restore to a previous restore point.

I personally hate automatic updates that are out of my control.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Sir i am a dealing in notebook. i purchased a compaq presario cq60 104tu .. and also license win xp sp3 . but when i started a boot from that cd ... it dosent work and it showing a blue screen... ( press...


your in windows xp and youre try to install sp3 from a disk i take it.
either the disk is corrupt,missing files or wrong version .causing blue screen.(fatal exception)
you could try leaving the disk in and reboot ...
when in windows select run D: or what ever letter is assigned to cd drive .( start , run , type in d: and enter)
this will show files on cd/dvd. drag and drop the .exe program into a file or on desktop and try to run.if it runs the cd/dvd is the prob (corrupt,virus,missing files.) if it does run its the software incompatable or faulty(incomplete files or wrong version)
either way the cd will be useless.
you can download sp3 (free)as long as you are using a registered os.

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages


It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.
