I dont know if this is the right section or not

Well my brother has this toshiba satellite a105 laptop and it was working fine.
Now I dont know exactly what happened, but my dad (who isnt to computer smart) said that he was reading news and the laptop just shut off and the windows start up logo came up, than the laptop restarted again and it keeps doing so every time the windows start up logo (the blue loading bar) finishes

There is a quick, almost instant blue screen with writing that pops up and I was able to read 'STOP' but nothing further, than the laptop just restarts again

I also cannot enter safe mode either, and when i put in the recovery cd, I get a messege saying WRONG MACHINE, but its the right cd for it

Any ideas what could be happening, and how i can get into windows again

Thanks in advance

From what I see...that CD is a recovery CD and it will only work for the system it was created for.

If you get that WRONG MACHINE message, you are not using the right recovery CD...from what I read.

I think it would be better if you could borrow or get someone to burn you a copy of a real MS XP CD and use that in conjunction with the Toshiba license, if the situation calls for such.

The first 11 or so digits after STOP on that error message...are clues to whatever is recognized as wrong. If you can take a look, write them down correctly, and post them here...it would help.

Have you tried to boot the PC to Last known good configuration by hitting F8 as the boot process starts up?

I would have to go with Louis advice and say look for a Standard Windows Cd that you could barrow from some one to do a repair install on the PC. The only other Utilities I know of that would possible get you fixed up would be Winternals ERD or a Bart PE disk with 3rd party software to do the repair.

The Toshiba TE2100 notebook model ships with a set of four Recovery CDs.

*
Discs 1 and 2 contain Windows 2000 Recovery and Applications/Drivers.

*
Discs 3 and 4 contain Windows XP Recovery and Applications/Drivers.

Be sure to use the correct discs for the version of Windows installed on your TE2100. Installation of applications/drivers designed for a different operating system may cause the system to become unstable or unusable.

The following addendum may be found in the shipping box for the TE2100:

Using the Recovery and Applications/Drivers CDs to Re-InstallYour Computer’s Factory Image
From Tosiba

Your computer ships with a set of Recovery and Applications/DriversCDs which contain your computer’s operating system, a secondary operating system, and various drivers and utilities.

*** If you need to restore / "recover" the system to the original factory-installed configuration of software and settings, be sure to insert DISC 3 to begin the installation procedure.

For more information on using the Recovery CDs, see the instruction insert that shipped with them.

This application has failed to start because winsrv was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
