Upon start up, start pressing the F8 key until it takes you to a menu. In this menu there will be a " start Windows normally" selection. Select this and see if it will open normally or take you back into safe mode. If it does start normally, then shut it down from the start menu, and reboot to see if it will continue to start normally. Try this and let me know.

My Toshiba Satellite L305 does not complete the boot process following the latest Windows updates. I get only to a black screen. Any suggestions?


I suggest that you do a system restore via safe mode.

If you don't how to go to safe mode, please follow the following steps:

1. Turn on your computer and tap F8. Keep tapping until you see the screen where you can find the option to go to safe mode.

2. Highlight safe mode and press enter.

3. when you are inside safe mode, do a system restore to the date when it was still working fine. It should work.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I owned a asus 1001P netbook, whenever i boot it up, it will freeze the at desktop screen and there is nothing i could do.


Welcome to Fixya

Freezing up issues usually caused by recent software installation, hardware modification or virus infection. Try to restore the computer back to the date where it is working fine as part of the basic torubleshooting. Power on the computer and keep on tapping F8 key. Select SAFE MODE then press enter. Once you are inside windows safe mode, click start menu then click all programs. Click accessories then click sytem tools. Click system restore then select a date where you remember your computer is working fine. Hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hi there,

Follow the below steps it would fix your issue.

Method 1: First you need to try safe mode and check if you are able to boot to the desktop.
Follow this below provided link to start your computer in safe mode.
Advanced startup options including safe mode
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Advanced-startup-options-including-safe-mode
Method 2:
If you are able to boot into safe mode then in order to troubleshoot this issue further, you may unplug all the external devices except keyboard and mouse and check if you are able to boot to the desktop.

Method 3: If the above provided steps don't resolve the issue then, I would recommend you perform startup repair.
Follow these steps:

To perform a Startup Repair follow the steps below:

a. Please insert the Windows 7 DVD and reboot the computer.
b. When we are prompted to press a key to boot from the DVD, please press Enter or the space bar.
c. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
d. Click Repair your computer.
e. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
f. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.

Laptop wont even attempt to load windows??


With this kind of problem, you must put in the Windows software disk and boot. Then select repair Windows from the list. This option will attempt to correct the problem.
If you do not have the disc, boot into the repair / diagnostic mode from the boot screen. See if there is an option to create boot disks.

Toshiba satellite laptop comes on and stays at windows xp page


If Safe Mode doesnt work then you may have to do a "repair" of your O/S. Place your Windows XP CD into the CD-Rom drive, reboot and once you see the options if you want to Install or Repair - choose Repair. This option will make repair to your O/S and for safe mode.
Once repair is complete do a complete Anti-Virus and Spyware scan of your Hard Drive. If you can boot into Safe Mode to run the ani-virus much better.
