Hello,

you laptop is having a OS problem. The windows start-up file maybe be corrupt and maybe that's why its not booting.

Try to run the system on safe mode by turning on the system then keep pressing F8 constantly till windows booting option show. Select safe mode and press enter.

But if the safe mode option refuses to show up, it means you will have to repair windows with OS vista CD. Insert it into the player and run allow the CD set up.

You will see an option to repair windows after the first setup.

Note that installing windows afresh will wipe of all data on your system but repairing won't wipe of your files. So there is nothing to worry about while repairing windows.

Good luck.

How to upgrade a toshiba L305 to a 500gb hard without hardware failure error


I'm a bit confused? You are trying to install a HDD with Windows 7 on it from another computer in a Toshiba L305 laptop? If that's correct, it will not work, first, you must format the 500GB SATA HDD, then load the Windows 7 OS to get a clean install. Clarify the question if I am incorrect.

My toshiba satellite series keeps freezing up when idle and I have to do a force shut done, any suggestions?


Best suggestion is to back up your files and reinstall the OS.
If it freezes while idle, some necessary data is most likely corrupted.
Force shut downs often cause system files to corrupt.

My Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875 always crashes on a cold boot.


Part of the problem is the hybernate function it causes windows to become unstable and eventually will corrupt the windows files making vista unusuable. I strongly suggest the hybernate mode be disabled and you make a backup recovery disc just in case windows crashes. By following what I have recommended and shut down windows when not in use will make a big difference in stability.

Satellite L305-S5907 locks up.


If your computer boots then lockup, try this:
When your computer boots, press F8 to enter boot selection. Then select Safe Mode. Try to uninstall your newly installed software or hardware that might be causing the problem. Then reboot. If it persists, try using "Last Known Good Configuration"


Another option is to reinstall your OS. Last bad option though. Good luck
