Laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro A120

Windows XP

Problem... Switch on>Black screen-We apologize for the inconvenience but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this. Blah blah.......it gives the option to start in Safe mode or S/M with networking or S/M with command prompt or Last known Config or start normally.

Tried all safe modes and get presented with hundreds of lines of System32 prompts then flashes back to first black screen over and over again.

If I let it try Start Normally I get Windows logo with blue bar moving for a few seconds then back to first black screen again over and over.....

Cannot get to desktop at all.

Any (easy to follow) things to try?

Thanks for reading thumbup.gif

Hello there,

OK this file is big Print these instruction out so that you know what you are doing

Two programs to download

    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
  • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
  • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • When asked "Do you wish to load the remote registry", select Yes
  • When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start. Change the following settings
    • Change Drivers to Use Safelist
  • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
  • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
  • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
  • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.
