Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
My toshiba satellite pro running vista has suddenly stopped working and will not boot-up.
I have a product recovery disc but understand that this will result in a loss of everything on the hard drive.
There are many photos I must save!
I have tried booting in safe mode and other advanced boot options by pressing F8 when the PC was re-starting.
All options I tried returned to the same error
‘windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause’
This is followed by an error message with a big red X.. message says:
‘system recovery options’ – The installed program cannot start. Click OK to turn off computer.
If you run a repair with the recovery disc you won't lose any info. The only time you'll lose the info is if you run a complete reload. Run the system disc until it gets to the point of finding installed operating systems, at this point instead of deleting the partition, press R and it will reinstall the operating system files only leaving other installed files and programs intact. Keep in mind that many times when this happens, it's a hard drive failure. If it is a hard drive failure, then you will have to replace the hard drive and you will lose the info, sorry.
