It can disable or re-enable the programs and device drivers that run during boot process. I deleted the files and rebooted my computer. And the bios is on slow boot. I can get into the bios from F2 or F12 easily in half a second without touching the power button. Has same issue before and got a way to fix it before but I threw the darn paper away! Start the computer, Press F2 to boot into Setup Bios go to the Security tab, if Fast Boot is enabled, if it's there disable it, Save and Exit.
If I have to make a new post in Vista forums I can do that. Your Windows will automatically restart. I got swamped with school work. But it is no dust, also i have cooling fan, but still happen when exposed the cpu to 100% also it turns 75 C and above when this load is so long I'm using also third party CoreTemp and windows Task Manager. Then select repair Windows from the list.
I will do that now and leave it in my next post. I guess the main goal is to get the machine to boot from a disc. When i click ok it returns to the password screen. I am going to be around the next few days and since first quarter tests are done, I now have time to work on this machine. Try going back to first tab and see if normal startup is still selected. Pay attention and listen to the words. Unfortunately I can't boot to windows to uninstall anything.
If its not then I am truly sorry! In that case, you can start Safe Mode by System Configuration to save your time. Do you want to activate windows now? I thought I had another week before Test time in college, but it was Last week, so I did not have time to work on this machine. I can get into the bios from F2 or F12 easily in half a second without touching the power button. To get past all that try the following. Can't get into safe mode.
As soon as the windows loading logo comes up it flashes a blue screen then restarts and comes up with Launch Startup Repair screen. Have not seen a fix for them yet, I believe it is in the mother board, I am going to try and re-flow the chipset next and see what happens. Sep 12, 2008 Restart the computer, Right after the Toshiba logo appears start tapping the F8 key. Even left it running overnight and nothing. You can read them and follow the steps selectively, according to your specific circumstance. Turn on the computer no battery, just connected to power. This will delete all your data.
Try installing the video driver first. Then the Advanced troubleshooting tools screen will appear, and click Troubleshoot. Thanks for your help so far, really has helped. All Windows operating systems running on any computer, including a Toshiba laptop, have a special boot mode called Safe Mode. From the Win+X Menu, open Run box, type msconfig and hit Enter. Select the Safe Mode you want to boot into, and press Enter. That depends on your needs.
Turned out to be a wrong one because when i restarted i got stucked into a blue screen of death loop and everytime it restarts it goes back to blue screen. Let us take a look at them in detail. Edit: I might ask for this topic to be moved from the External Hardware forum. Because the laptop won't load windows, It continuously restarts, wont even go into Safe mode. If that don't work try Safe Mode. We just want to wipe it again and start fresh. I was asking the guy what happened when his laptop stopped working, and he said that he was copying info from his external to his laptop and it got stuck so he restarted it without finishing copying the files off his external hard drive, So I had a pretty good feeling it would not pass the hard drive tests.
Reboot the computer and you should be able to access your account. You will get an option to start in Safe Mode. If you have one set. And Because the Laptop wont even start Windows I told him I could 'once again' wipe it and reinstall windows for him. If both of the steps failed, unfortunately, you need to do full system recovery. I feel really bad about it. I really do appreciate all the help you have given me in the past.
Once it finished loading, choose advanced option instead of Toshiba recovery wizard and it will lead you to system restore. That one by the way is perfect and running great. It is really a nice to unlock local or Microsoft account login password. But I promise I will not disappear again. Make a post and disappear for a week or 2, I am really sorry.

Try pressing the F8 once you boot up. Then repeat the instructions from to finish the settings, and your Windows will boot into Safe Mode. Start by removing the battery and run the computer on the power adapter only. Any advice would be perfect and thank you guys for all your help, especially Austra Alien!!!! Or it could be that the Disc in the machine has gone bad. I will go ahead and disable automatic restart and leave the response in my next post.
