You need to reinstall operative system, either using recovery disk, or using a generic windows setup disk.
If the computer does not read recovery disk, then it is probably scratched or faulty.
System reinstall is usually done at any computer repair shop for a not too expensive fee.
When hard disk is damaged you often also hear a typical clicking noise, and system stop shortly after post.

My sylvania wont load it gives an loading os message


One of the start-up programs or operating system file may be corrupted causing the unit not to load the os. Here's what you can try to see, one might work for you.

- Go to BIOS setup and reload default settings. Make sure that no other storage devices are plugged in to the unit.
- Boot to Safe Mode. Disable start-up items and disable non-Microsoft services. Try to boot if it works. If not, proceed to the next step.
- Boot to Safe Mode and perform a system restore back to the date it was working fine.
- You may need to reinstall the os if none of the above options work.

Hope this helps.

Error loading operating system

There might be 2 problems basically:
1. The bootloader is not able to detect your OS, in that case try re-installing the OS.
2. The bios isn't able to detect the hard disk so remove the main battery and open the hard-disk bay and re-insert it.

Finally if these steps don't work take it to the nearest authorised service center.

OS problem

This is most likely going to be a failed hard drive. Since it won't load the system, by general rule, If the hard drive won't format, or if you have any issues during or after the set up of a new operating system, then the hard drive is shot, and needs replaced. Replace the drive and you should be just fine.

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair

Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck
