I have a Toshiba Satellite L305D-s5934 sitting in front of me. A friend asked me to repair it, and this one has me stumped. It will not boot into Vista, goes through post fine and gets to the loading screen on Vista where it sits for about 3 minutes then BSODs with a registry failure and reboots.

What i have done.

Vista recovery disk, start up repair failed to fix problems. No recovery points set. CMD prompt with a bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot both of which were successful, restarted and still no boot.

I dont want to reload this laptop, lots of data that I dont want to loose. Any ideas?

FWIW: http://www.vistax64.com/vista-installation-setup/37241-top-c0000218-registry-file-failure-how-fix-vista-ulti.html

Seems strange...Vista users indicate that it's a RAM problem, while...in XP, it's not handled as such, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830084 .

FWIW: The Registry Cannot Load The Hive

Running the "/fixmbr" command on an OEM laptop may prevent access to the recovery partition should that be needed as a last resort.

Good to know, pretty sure HDD is out the door. Check disk had more bad sectors then i could count. Backed up what data was still good and new hard drive is in the mail.
