Question about Toshiba Satellite A35-S159 Notebook
I am getting a screen at start up that reads
"We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shutdown to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the last settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start Windows Normally
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your selection"
This started because I had to power down quickly to leave for a meeting, but I was simply trying to look at a pdf online and my computer froze...so using the menu options to power off wasn't working so I just hit the main power button. Then...when I tried to restart later...the above is all I get. I have tried highlighting each of the options separately, but the same result occurs...it works on starting for about 5 minutes and then reverts back to Toshiba start up screen...then quickly comes back to screen and directions above.
I don't know what else to do! Please help
The shut down caused a system glitch. You will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Rare, but occasionally, the hard drive crashes under these circumstances and will need to be replaced. Usually if this happens, the hard drive was on it's way out anyway, and would have crashed eventually.
