Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My Toshiba Satellite Pro P200 laptop crashed. I had to turn it off simply by holding the power button down. When i try to reboot, I can go into the f2 for setup option, or the f12 for boot device selection. When i chose either of the devices to boot up, i can then choose to boot in safemode, my last working configuration, or to start windows normally. If I choose safemode, then the screen is filled with some script, and after a few seconds reverts back into the initial toshiba loading screen. If I choose either of the other two options, I get the windows loading screen, which is then interrupted by a blue flash with a lot of text in it, but lasts half a second at best, and then it reverts back into the initial loading screen. Any ideas?

Hello,

fairly common, If you hit F8 during the start up process, until you get to see "advanced start up options" select Disable automatic restart on system failure and hit enter.


You should then get a Blue screen as the computer crashes instead of restarting automatically, if you could post me the error codes and messages from the bottom - I may then be able to see if we can fix it or if you have to reinstall windows to the computer.

    Thank you very much for your reply. The problem detected seems to be:

    UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

    Technical Information:

    *** STOP: 0X000000ED (0X8A7C08D0, 0XC0000006, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

    unmountable boot volume indicates a problem with the hard drive, with a normal windows installation disc appropriate for your windows version, you can try performing a repair installation, or you can take the computer to a local shop where they can short it out for you if you don't have such a disc. from the error message I almost assume you have windows xp on the computer, I've written instructions and can link them for you if you get such a disc, if its a vista computer just put the disc in and start it, from it select Repair my computer when you get to the vista setup.

You probably have to reinstall the operating system
