to start I'm not 100% sure that im in the right OS forum, didnt look cause i didnt think id need to know.

I'm restoring an old (i mean OLD) toshiba satellite laptop for a friend. i put it in safe mode and after a few minutes it cut to the user selection, so i decided to restore it to factory settings. and while i was restoring it, it froze at the "windows is loading files" screen and so i restarted it (in retro spec probably not my best idea) and now every time i turn it on the "windows is loading files" screen pops up goes maybe 1/8 of the way freezes and starts beeping. its continuous beeping.

i got to a screen that i dont know what its called but it has something about EMS (something) which takes me back to the beeping loading files screen and an error scanner thing that tells me to use a disk that i dont have and it gives me this 0xc000000f boot/memtest.exe

I'm at a total loss here. can anyone help? ill answer any questions you have to the best of my knowledge.

ps. sorry for the lack of terminology at the end, its been a long day :P

Please...provide specific info on the laptop model...it could be important when trying to assess what might be wrong with the restore function.

I think it's an L650-197, i can't find a model number anywhere on it. All I could do was google it and find a matching picture.
